So how did they meet?
“I feel like most people wouldn’t believe it, it’s literally something out of a movie,” he said last year at the awake podcast. “So I’m usually at home, I don’t go out often because I’m usually working, and I always thought, well, the perfect guy would probably be at his house too, not going out, so how can I do it? Do people like us gather? Because we don’t go clubbing per se.”
“What happened was Jimmy was coming to South Africa with Logan Paul, Casey Neistat, they had a video they wanted to film in Antarctica and they all got COVID, so they had to cancel the video and stay in South Africa for a while. more extensive. So, obviously that’s where I am,” he continued.
“Logan makes MrBeast go out at night and MrBeast goes out into nature, to a club, and they’re like chilling there, and one of my friends runs into them and uh, so they went out to dinner the same day.” night, I said, “Okay, I’ll leave the house and meet you guys for a quick coffee,” he continued.
“I was also very curious, I knew MrBeast, I knew the great things he was doing, but also, from a psychological perspective, I was curious, like, are these people playing? Do you have an alter ego? Do they have their feet on the ground? I really wanted to meet him in person and see him,” Thea said. “So I got there and he was super nice, very down to earth, and he started asking me a lot of questions. He didn’t know it, it was actually like getting off a list because he was potentially looking for a new girlfriend and he had this whole list. “He says she has to have a hobby, she has to have some interest, she has to do this and that, and I thought we were having the best conversation ever.”
“We were talking about my book, Neuroscience, and the fact that he could keep up with the conversation was very attractive to me, because you have to have a certain interest and intellect to want to talk about these things. I thought I was boring him,” he shared.
Then after she got home she got a direct message from him, they started talking on Twitter, then he went back to South Africa a second time to visit her and then a third time. She then returned to the United States with him and they got along well and have a lot in common.
