A man revealed he quit his $100,000 per year job to work for Logan Paul – however, got knocked back when he went up against the YouTube star behind the stage at the Jake Paul versus Tyron Woodley fight this weekend.
You can see his emotional response in the video below:
Austin Wallace is a 22-year-old from Ohio who says he chose to jack it all in and leave his place of employment to work with Logan Paul.
He concluded that the most ideal approach to that was to cut all ties and head on to Cleveland – where the fight was being held – and trick his way behind the stage to just ask the older Paul sibling for work.
It didn’t quite go as planned.
In a video shared – Wallace mournfully conceded: “I’m 22, I do make $100,000 a year and that’s cool. I wanna act, I wanna do these things, I’m gonna break down right now.”
He then, at that point added: “I don’t know what to do. I did come up here by myself, I do have a family but we’re not the closest, and I don’t have really close friends. You know there are millions of people trying to do what I wanna do. Just watch the clip.”
Then, at that point, he encountered the experience between himself and Paul. After he disclosed his circumstance to the YouTuber-turned-fighter, he didn’t find a new line of work… however, he got some advice.
Paul asked him: “What are you good at?”
Wallace said he knows some basics about TikTok dancing and essentially conceded that he doesn’t have the stuff, after which Paul inquired: “Then why would I give you a job?”
Paul continued: “I can’t be a mentor right now. I’m a f***-up myself. I need a mentor, you know what I’m saying? I didn’t have connections or people around me, I had Jake. Do you have a brother? Do you have friends?
Paul added: “You’re a good-looking guy. You have friends, bro. You’re f***ing lying. Go make content, make stuff with your friends. I’m glad you quit your job, it takes balls to do that, but now you gotta activate. I’m not the guy directly. My team is [mimes something very small] – we’re locked.”
We will see whether Austin will travel to LA or not. The video went viral both on TikTok as well as on Twitter and received more than 900k Plus likes and 26K comments on it.
