Mimiyuuuh reveals ‘true personality’ in online house tour

I like to say that I love Mimiyuuuh, but frankly speaking, I’m not a fan of silly antics and “meme-like” poses. From obscurity, the tiny-framed shoulders of Mimiyuuuh now “carry” known brands, endorsements, and online influence, with him amassing millions of followers (his YouTube channel alone has more than three million subscribers!).

So my first “introduction” to Mimiyuuuh was through his “Empty House Tour” (now with more than a million views in just a day!) with a title card “Ang Katas ng Pagyoutube!” His family’s new house is not exactly empty in a sense as his family is already residing there, but it still needs a lot of work.

According to Mimiyuuuh, after a few months of house-hunting, his family finally decided on this one because he “felt at home.”  He also mentioned his broker, who helped him find this property. Entering the gate, an empty garage (maybe for two cars) welcomes visitors. I find it smart that Mimiyuuuh keeps on mentioning some car brands, subtly “courting” them to get him as endorser. As what Mimiyuuh has quipped in the video: “Make me rich, bitch!”   

The living area of the house is surprisingly clean and elegant. It is airy and is visually wide, perhaps due to the high ceiling. As daylight permeates through the living area, there is no need to even switch on the lights. The wall and ceiling are painted white, while the floor tiles are also white (something like faux marble), which adds to the overall elegance of the space.  

What’s surprising also is that the house comes with a pool, a “fixture” for the elite. But here, Mimiyuuuh considers the pool not only for providing a refreshing view, but also as a proof that his hard work has “already bore fruit.”

The kitchen area is also modern, behind a dining set that’s also classy and elegant. There’s a modern induction and exhaust set, which Mimiyuuuh jokingly revealed he is not aware on how to operate. He also points to a microwave (with special mention to Lazada), which is his family’s first time to own one.

Mimiyuuuh appreciates the “unfinished” finish of the concrete staircase. He, however, plans to put a glass railing on the second floor for safety. There are three rooms on the second level. One for his sister, one for his brother, and another for his parents. With special mention to a cabinet brand (including its website), the bedrooms are comfortable. Light and breeze can easily come in with the large windows.

Outside his parents’ bedroom, there is still an unfinished terrace. Mimiyuuuh reveals to his audience that the place is so airy, especially when you view the stars here at night, which he loves to do.

Mimiyuuuh’s bedroom is located at the first floor, which is the master’s bedroom. There are still some elements lacking, but it is an interior designer’s dream to decorate this space to reflect Mimiyuuuh’s energy and eccentricity.  There’s a small walk-in closet, now filled with his clothes and stuff.

He has his own bathroom, which is very modern, with classy fixtures. There’s a glass window opening, which provides a view of the pool. What’s funny is Mimiyuuuh kept on commenting about the house’s Japanese-branded toilet, which has buttons for various functions. You have to watch that part regarding that toilet, and how it doesn’t meet his “standards.”

Outside the house, beside the pool area, is a rough patch of greens. He reveals his parents’ desire to plant some trees and flowers.

So what’s the big revelation?

For me, it is not even the house, as it is still a work in progress. What’s revealing is how witty, smart, and business-savvy this Mimiyuuuh character is. The 19-minute video just “went by” with him mentioning at least a couple of brands (a softdrink, a junkfood, his broker, a cabinet maker, a furniture, etc.). This kind of “parinig” is also being done by other celebrities doing online home tours (Read: ), but Mimiyuuuh took the “charming route” by becoming, yes, simply charming with a huge dose of comedy and self-deprecation. I also found his online character surprisingly personable, contrary to my initial thought that I would be irritated.

Now, whether he mentions the brands unknowingly or not, the “deceit” lies in the fact that we don’t know his true motives and intentions, but we don’t care as long as we’re entertained. I’m not a fan of Mimiyuuuh but I found his home tour more watchable than those established celebrities who are “fakish,” as they are just forced by the circumstances to fill content for their online channels.   

Mimiyuuuh is not ashamed to admit that he, indeed, earns from the views of his YouTube videos (your viewing is continuously “broken” by advertisements). He works hard for the money and he is upfront in telling you to “make him rich, bitch!”  Beneath his humor and silliness lies the determination and grit to become successful for the sake of his family. For that, kudos to him for reminding us the value of hard work and perseverance. And yes, he also reminds you to like, subscribe, or comment.
