Someday, three contestants on Jeopardy! will face this head-scratcher of a final question: “Hype, Sway, and Honey are three examples of these.” The nerds will furrow their brows, nervously push their glasses up their sweaty noses, and sigh hopelessly. Rappers? Dance moves? Care Bears? All three brainiacs will guess wrong and go home empty-handed, reputations ruined. But trash like you and I will be screaming from our couches at home, “TikTok mansions, TikTok mansions!”
So, yeah, there’s another TikTok mansion (definition: a house consisting of people aspiring for TikTok stardom who create content together and separately). Hype House was the one that got Bling Ring’d. The residents of Sway House were charged for throwing pandemic house parties. And the latest is Honey House. What makes Honey House different is that its residents aren’t Gen Z partiers; they’re yoga-model-actor-mindfulness-type millennials. Which is maybe worse, because you know they think their “brands” are saving the world.
The mansion’s TikTok account is @honeyhouse, and the page mostly consists of video challenges like seeing who gets a text back fastest, voting on who has to do the dishes, and, of course, stupid fucking dances. The girls are referred to as “honeys”, and the boys are called “homies”. Everybody in the videos are white, although, according to a @honeyhouse comment, POC allegedly live there. I guess they’re just camera-shy?
But, like, how do these people make money when they’re not TikTok-ing? OMG, great Q, guys! Let their main homie JT take you on a virtual tour:

A house full of adults and webcams called the “Honey House” and it’s not a big ole’ orgy lair? Boring!
