After the rise and fall of Jake Paul’s influencer collective, Team 10, new houses began popping up all over Los Angeles, each rivaling the other for fame. The trend even seeped into the TikTok world, with collectives like the Hype House, Sway House, and the Club House forming their famous social media influencers band.
For some time, Team 10’s biggest rival was the Clout House or Clout Gang. The collective, founded by FaZe Banks, has always gone toe-to-toe with each other in many internet feuds and took jabs at each other.
But who exactly were the members of Clout House?
Founder, Ricky “FaZe” Banks.
FaZe Banks was the group’s frontrunner, calling most of the shots and organizing who was in the group and who wasn’t. He’s best known for his gaming videos and Twitch streams and stealing Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend Alissa Violet in a very public fight.
After her very public split from Jake Paul, Alissa switched teams and started dating FaZe Banks, ditching Team 10 and joining the Clout House. With the group, Alissa released her own diss tracks against her ex, including “It’s EveryNight Sis,” a direct diss parody of his initial track, “It’s Everyday Bro.” She and FaZe broke up in July 2019, and news of her decision to leave the Clout House or not remains unclear.
Bryan Quang Le, aka RiceGum.
RiceGum, who’s best known for his vlogs, diss tracks, and many internet feuds, is one of the group’s founding members. He and FaZe were good friends before the group’s founding, and he was one of the original residents of the infamous Clout House. He is still associated with FaZe and the collectives.
Fitness vlogger and Instagram model Sommer Ray was another of the Clout House’s original members. She left the collective in December 2018, although it’s not if her departure was due to her breakup with RiceGum.
Carrington Durham initially joined the Clout House in the hopes of growing her YouTube and Instagram following. Though, she does not seem to associate with the group any longer. She has over 450,000 subscribers.
Charles Xavier Raynor, or “WolfieRaps,” left the group in 2017. He addressed his reasoning for going in a vlog titled “THE REAL REASON WE LEFT CLOUT GANG (I SHOULDN’T SAY THIS).” In the video, he reveals that though he left on amicable terms, Charles claimed that FaZe and RiceGum were trash talking him after he left, leading to tensions between him and his former group members.
The Juarez Twins
It looked as though FaZe had kicked out Juarez twins Dillon and David. They were the least known members of the Clout House and had only amassed a YouTube subscribing of only 42,500.
At the time, it looked like the Clout House had dissolved, transitioning to FaZe’s new collective: the FaZe Clan. All of the original group’s members can be identified as “FaZe” in their channel names.
No one from the group posted an official announcement of the Clout House’s disbandment, but many of the original members have since distanced themselves from the group.
Then coupled with the fact that the Hype House moved into the infamous Clout House, and it seems the group is mostly extinct now.
