If there’s one thing in the world we love the most, it’s spotting our favourite YouTube and Internet creators making guest appearances in mainstream media – be it on TV, in movies or releasing their own music. So imagine our surprise when we found out that famous prankster Jack Jones was going to be on a reality celebrity dating show called Celebs Go Dating… and then everyone on Twitter hated him.
The 23-year-old “YouTube sensation” was painted from the very first second as someone who kicked women into bushes and spent all his time filming videos taking the mick out of people. In addition to this, he wore sunglasses and over-sized t-shirts in almost every scene and admits that girls expect him to be “this wild, crazy character”, when instead he’s a “chilled, relaxed” person.
As the show continued, Jack went out on a date with a Joey Essex super fan that he described as “well fit”. Most of the conversation on Twitter centred around his need to laugh at the end of every single sentence and the fact that his pick up lines were excruciatingly bad – at one point he offered his date his “services”. Jack mentioned on Twitter that the next episode will feature more of his “pranks”, but if he kicks a single person into a bush then we’re totally done.
So, whilst Jack was making his TV debut last night, the reviews were flying in hot on Twitter… and they weren’t exactly the nicest. Let’s take a look at what everyone was saying about him.
