Team 10 is a Los Angeles-based social media squad comprised of YouTubers, vloggers, rappers, singers, actors, models, and social media stars. The squad came into existence on August 5, 2016, after Jake Paul, a former Viner turned YouTube sensation, came up with the idea of starting a media company/talent incubator aimed at creating brand-sponsored content basically for teens and young adults.
The group lives in a mansion they call home (Team 10 House), located in LA, from where they create content for each of their several social media pages and channels across the web and their collective YouTube channel. Their first video, “What is Team 10?” came online on August 6, 2016, and has received over a million views.
The original members of the Team 10 squad comprised of Alissa Violet, Neels Visser, Alex Lange, twins Lucas and Marcus Dobre, Nick Crompton, and AJ Mitchell. The squad had gone through some challenges, internal structure issues, and changes over the years that has resulted in some members leaving and some others like Justin Roberts, Chad Tepper, Anthony Trujillo, Erika Costell, Martinez Twins, Tessa Brooks, Tristan Tales, Ben Hampton, and Kade Speiser all coming in to join the team at some point.

Is Team 10 Still Active or Have They Disbanded?
While Team 10 has garnered much popularity regarding their members, recruits, and former residents of the Hype House and Sway House, fans have raised several questions. One of such questions is whether Team 10 is still active or if they have disbanded. The team, which was co-founded by Jake Paul in 2017, has constantly witnessed changes in the list of its members. However, former members, including Alissa Violet, Erika Costell, and Chance Sutton, have posted videos about the real drama that went on behind the scenes with Jake Paul.
From its inception, Team 10 was known for posting content on its various social media platforms. Their official YouTube channel, which has over 2 million subscribers, stopped being active in September 2019. The last video posted on the channel was Jake Paul’s marriage to Tana Mongeau. Since then, there has never been a new update regarding the team and its current state. However, Jake Paul has been constantly updating his YouTube channel and other social media accounts.
More so, in 2019, there were reports that Jake started another team comprising Lauren Dascalo, Brandon Amato, Adam Quinn, Mikahl Caci, and Payton. However, the group’s aim did not materialize as nothing was heard about them afterward. In June 2020, Jake posted a video titled I Broke My Rib Cage, We Called an Ambulance, with the hashtags #JakePaul and #Team10, which gave a hint that the team was still a thing and are looking for more people to join them.
According to Jake in the YouTube video, they had gotten many applications and are looking to take two male and two female members. Finally, YouTube stars Eric Decker (Airrack) and Tucker Doss were selected. TikTok and Instagram stars such as Kaylyn Slevin and Elle Danjean also made the team. Kaylyn and Elle are famous following their relationship with TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Tayler Holder. As for the future of team 10, fans are eagerly waiting in anticipation to see more of the team of talented media influencers.
