Right, so he came back because he felt not ready? I wonder what the things were. From what he was saying at the end, it sounds a little like he doubted his religion? Who knows. He probably won't ever say what the things are. Doubting religion would make sense about why the family are so upset. 

Still quite confusing.

Basically he wants $$$ from YT. Also he's morphing into Shay with those philosophical tangents…

I don't know a lot about the Mormon church so I don't know what "cleansed, pure" means when it comes to the missions… any one got any insight?

a whole lot of work that I've streamlined ;)

I thought that – he sounded exactly like Shay when talking about just being a good person. To be honest, at least that is a good, solid message. That is why I like the Shaytards, I feel like they promote good family values/being a moral person (yes they talk about their religion but I feel like they don't preach and they don't push it on their viewers at all) and it surprises me the most that I love watching a super religious, republican family being a very liberal, leftie atheist.

I was surprised this thread just got here! I feel kinda love/hate with the Shaytards. They're definitely fun to watch, but almost 5 years of daily videos freaks me out for the kids. They're way too young to understand the implications of that, even if their parents are asking them if thriller comfortable with it (and they didn't really get much of a choice when they were babies, as the youngest three started out as infants on it).

I agree. I like them/think they are entertaining… I watched there "We're Debt Free" video and it make me a little teary eyed.. (Side note: Does anyone know how much they make from YT?) but Shay in general makes me roll my eyes and I do feel for the kids. I can take or leave pretty much any blogger kids/youtube kids… They are cute but they are kids, ya know? But I love Rocktard. He's hilarious and adorable.

In the debt free video, which was from 2011, Shay claims he already makes "six figures". Their popularity has grown since then… They do a lot of brand deals on the ShayCarl channel. Rolling in it!

I got the impressions Dave Ramsey kind of made that number up on his own assumption, so I wasn't sure if it was accurate… Holy cow! They really must be doing well then.

Probably it means he was masturbating or looked at porn once, or went to second base with his girlfriend before the mission, and didn't tell his bishop. So, he hadn't repented to get "cleansed, pure".

Ummm are they going to get Zeke neutered? He's well over a year old now, and I can't believe they haven't had it taken care of. I can't imagine they're going to breed him, so why are they slacking on this? Malachi was neutered so I know they're not against it.

There was also something going on with Logan and his girlfriend. They're back together now but based on casual observations from instagram, I'm pretty sure they broke up for a little while around the time he came back/maybe for awhile before, too. So I'm thinking that had something to do with it, maybe? Girlfriend/breakup drama.

 

Yeah, I suspect Shay makes a ton. Maker Studios (the studio he founded with some other youtube stars) is in talks with Disney to be bought for $500 million…so that company (which Shay has a hand in, right?) must be superrrr profitable. Plus all the video views on multiple channels, brand deals, merchandise sales, etc etc etc…

$500 million?!?! SHIT. My understanding is he is one of 5 partners??? I think… which could work out to a cool mill each. Which also means youtube is probably his pocket change. He is also has clothing deals with Volcom (Again, I think. I haven't been watching long enough to know for certain/details). He has a line of socks, the calendars etc….

I don't fault them for it, honestly. They are people that are easy to root for (I talked about how unroot-worthy Young House Love was in that forum a few days ago and the Shaytards are examples of people you want to do well… a cute couple, 5 kids, they were once in fairly serious debt/working jobs and not making a lot… Plus, taking and uploading a video EVERY SINGLE day is no joke.) so I am glad they are obviously doing well financially. I still however stand by my hesitation of having your kids that much in the public eye.

I tried watching their vlogs, but I find the father very irritating. I also think it is very weird that they have vlogged their children every single day for so long. Are any of the kids even old enough to remember life before YT? The kids don't get a say and are too young to truly understand what it means to have their entire lives open for public consumption. Good for them that the family is doing well financially, but I have to wonder at what cost. The kids are pretty cute though.

I 100% agree. Its my only real gripe with them and something I keep going back and forth on. I think they are amazing parents and have fun/open relationships with the children… You can tell the kids are fairly normal, regular kids… BUT I don't agree with putting so much of your kids out there. I feel bad for the oldest, I think his name is Gavin (I despise the "Tard" nicknames). I often catch him being embarrassed which is totally normal for a 10 or 11 year old but for him his embarrassments are captured for the world to see… and I still cant wait for 10-15 years from now when this hoard of children realize that their births were literally watched by thousands. I cant imagine watching a video of myself coming out of my mother, let alone knowing my friends could watch it.

Oh and yes, another gripe I suppose I have is that the dad, Shay, is annoying as f**k. The mom seems naturally funny as do the kids but he seems to put it all on which is obnoxious…. yet, hes the one laughing all the way to the bank so what the f**k do I know?

For the most part (I don't like Shays sister, I cant remember if her name is Karli or Cayli. So confusing. Not the pregnant one married to his brother.. but his actual sister) I enjoy The Moms View.
