Who doesn’t love luxury! Right? We all drool, looking at grandiose houses on various shows. Now, visualize a mansion full of teenagers and young adults making videos of themselves on their smartphones. Welcome to these TikTok Houses!
For the uninitiated, a group of Gen Z TikTok influencers get together in a luxury home and create content for the platform. And what better backdrop than having a beautiful property all to themselves! But don’t get disappointed if you don’t see any furniture in their videos – it is the event’s format.
Just in case you have missed the point, here’s a fact for you: These houses are so popular that Netflix is planning a series on these houses. And Los Angeles is the epicenter of all the action.
TikTok is an amazing community with a unique culture; there’s so much more to it than meets the eye.
Let’s take a peek inside the most popular TikTok houses — discover how they function and get to know the members (read, influencers) who reside here.
Why Have A Tiktok House?
Also called “collab houses” and “content houses,” these are physical houses where influencers collaborate. YouTube influencers established the tradition of having ‘collab’ houses in 2014.
Okay, that’s enough of how now let’s get to the why of TikTok houses. Making videos together – not just virtually but physically – helps influencers fuel each other’s creativity while having fun. Living together gives them a chance to work as a team and lift each other!
These young TikTokers have no doubt made a name for themselves, but staying and creating content together brings in much more energy and potential. They already might be enjoying a following of millions, but ‘collab’ houses amplify their potential. In TikTok houses, influencers also cross-promote their content, thus, boosting their fan base massively.
TikTok has revolutionized the way users consume content! The numbers associated with the platform will blow your mind!

The now-disbanded house, which had 5.4 million following, was one of the first TikTok Houses to come up. But it wouldn’t be fair to leave it out of this list as it was one of the most prominent TikTok houses. However, it has always been in the middle of controversy. Although it had the crème de la crème of TikTok as its members, it came under police radar in August 2020. The Sway Houses hosted a party to celebrate the birthday of Bryce Hall and invited hundreds of people despite restrictions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After rumors that the house has fallen apart spread, the members in February 2021 confirmed that the Sway House doesn’t exist anymore. They claimed that they have gone their own way but are still close.
Members: Bryce Hall, Griffin Johnson, Josh Richards, Jaden Hossler, Noah Beck, Kio Cyr, Quinton Griggs, and Anthony Reeves
If these names weren’t enough to ignite the creative fire within you, don’t worry, there are many influencers who can motivate you. Just keep looking for your inspiration.
How To Become A Member?
If you are young, passionate, and have a lot of energy, then nothing can stop you from being a part of these swanky bands that live in upscale mansions. But we’re sorry to burst your bubble, it isn’t that easy either!
Either you have to go through an audition or have an influencer friend who is already a part of these groups. The members of the houses can bring their friends, with the “permission” of the other members. And all they expect from the new housemates are they should:
- Be energetic
- Have huge personalities
- Be talented or a little eccentric
- Be extremely good-looking
To sum it up, the new entrant should be a hard worker willing to work every day and churn out content while enjoying with friends.
