I think he’s an alright guy and his content is just easy to watch stuff but he really shouldn’t be teaching kids like your young boys that it’s okay to go and basically steal food and spa days...Sorry but I love Simon Wilson. He is genuine and down to earth. My whole family love his vlogs especially my young boys. I literally cannit hear a word against him - will have to stop reading this thread lol
Im actually amazed to see his name on here
I do like Toba, but did anyone see his insta stories a month or so ago where he appeared to imply that nobody can have an excuse to be homeless due to the sort of hacks he shows in his videos? Not sure if he was just trying to be provocative / get a conversation going. Sorry for the OTI much perfer London hacks and it is actually useful information and spreading awareness for stuff.
I missed this. The thing with homelessness is you don't have a fixed a bode to claim things , you dont have a phone to check where free food is ect is and also your exhausted and mentally knackered from it all. You might not have cards as a way to test out an electric bike for 3 days so i would disagree with that statement.I do like Toba, but did anyone see his insta stories a month or so ago where he appeared to imply that nobody can have an excuse to be homeless due to the sort of hacks he shows in his videos?

Yeah exactly. Seems unbelievably short sighted. He even went so far as to say - framing it as a question - that homelessness was therefore a choice. I wasn’t in the mood for provocative ignorance so can’t speak for how much he was playing devils advocate or trying to get a conversation going I think in an Instagram live he was about to do. But he definitely said it so hope we can give him the benefit of the doubt.:.I missed this.

Yeah it is easy to do the odd couple of nights he does it. He has the security knowing he has money in the bank and a home that is safe. Imagine doing it for months and years and dealing with the stress Especially during winter period with no money or home.
Oh yeah. Especially since he was caught faking his stuff. I mean the guy claimed to make a hefty profit selling ping pong balls (or was it golf balls...?) that he drew smiley faces on in Central London. No Londoner on their daily commute is going to give an American YouTuber with a creepy constant smile money for a bleeping ping pong ball with a smiley face! Most probably wouldn’t even stop. So he deserved to get busted for trying to pull that scam.They are both better than living Bobby
i haven;t seen it and won;t bother, i don;t get the point, travelling somewhere new a lot of things like food are, for me, a big part of the experience. I don;t want go travel somewhere just to eat macdonaldsHis "Sweden with No Money" video came up in my suggestions last night so I went ahead and watched it. And yep, still irritated the more it went on.
At one point, when he kept trying to get access to different pools and spas and it wasn't happening, he was like " well the Swedish spas aren't treating me too well this time are they"... and I was like well you're not paying one red cent, so.... what do you expect.
Then he was probably busted at McDonald's again when he tried the whole " I was short a burger and I don't have my receipt and can't show you my bank account because it's in the UK and hasn't been processed yet" thing. But some dude in there recognized him and watches him and likely told the manager after he left.
I can't believe he has no shame about it. I do also cringe at the way bystanders and other folk are all in his videos without knowing because he likely holds his camera/ phone in a way they can't tell.
Then he roomed with some guy that he found on an app I guess? And while it turned out fine this time and every other time prior, because he's still alive, I just feel like he's going to eventually room with the wrong stranger.
I'm still subscribed to him, he recently hit 1m. I think it's well deserved considering the work he's put in and the fact he's braved places like Syria and Chernobyl lol but I'm liking the fact that he hasn't done the McD's freeloading thing in what feels like a LONG time. He also hasn't done a no money challenge recently where he sneaks into a hotel buffet, but I suppose using their rooftop deck or shower like he does is still not nearly as bad to me as the lying to McD's. I think he might have left that in the past, although it still bothers me that he did that, if he ever acknowledged that as a mistake that'd go a long way with me but I know most of his subscribers don't care about that part and rather think it's cool.I've only just found out about this guy (a couple of years too late it seems haha). Have your opinions changed?
