'Celebrity Show-Off': Diplo is eliminated after 'Dip Thoughts' fails to impress, fans say he was the worst
Diplo is an EDM icon and is a thorough entertainer once he's off the console as well. However, the video he created on the show failed to garner enough views and resulted in his elimination
Thomas Wesly Pentz aka Diplo was the newest celebrity to join the cast of 'Celebrity Show-Off' last week after Bella Thorne was eliminated from the show that requires celebrities to create compelling content for TBS Network's YouTube channel. Each week, the celebrity with the lowest engagement on their videos is shown the exit and this week it was time for Diplo to depart after just a week after he first appeared on the show.
Diplo named his video 'Dip Thoughts' wherein he tried to give viewers a tour of what goes on inside his head. He was saying his thoughts out loud in the video which included his love for water and his thoughts about what his brain thinks when he sees an airplane in the sky. The video was uploaded to TBS's YouTube channel last week and a replay was a part of Tuesday (July 7) night's episode. After the video played, host Mayim Bialik asked the other celebrities who are also a part of the show if they'd like to spend a week in Diplo's head. While Tori Spelling and Ja Rule responded with a yes, Kevin Smith and Jason Mraz maintained a straight face. At the end of the episode, Diplo was announced as the celebrity with the lowest views on his video. Joining him was Ja Rule who had created a video about him acting as a matchmaker, setting up his client, a woman named Savo on a date.
The power lay with Kevin Smith who had the highest views on his video, a sitcom titled 'Son in Lockdown', as well as Tori and the other safe celebrity contestant Jason Mraz. They had to vote to keep one among Diplo and Ja on the show and the latter was unanimously chosen to stay on, in the competition. Diplo's video had failed to entertain fans and fans of the show seemed happy that he was the one who was eliminated from the show.
"Diplo was the WORST one ever! Kevin Smith still number 1!" tweeted a fan. While another responded with, "I agree #KevenSmith rocks #Celebrityshowoff. Also like #JasonMraz but not as much. As for Diplo, I say #DipNots". Another tweeted, "Mayim Bialik laughing at stupid Diplo jokes just gave me a migraine. #CelebrityShowOff".
All celebrities appearing on the show are playing for charity, the longer they stay, the more money they make for their chosen organizations. Even though Diplo exited the show, he did win some money for Downtown Art Walk, a non-profit organization helping underserved youth, artists, galleries, and art-related small and micro businesses through a variety of year-round programs, including vocational opportunities and training, youth programs, cultural enrichment tours and art placemaking.
