Haha I must have watched that like 50 times.

It still blows me away how fast people are finding those tickets. Really, 2-3 minutes from him posting online people are racing there - now that's crazy. Then at the end of the show, just the amount of people waiting outside for them that they need a police escort out. This whole thing is a lot bigger than I thought it was.

Also, Brittney is killing it with the vlogging!

Did you see the reception that Brittney received when she walked on stage? No wonder everyone wants her to start her own vlogging channel. Also, it was nice to see "Superwoman" make an appearance and show Roman and Fousey some support.

Ya I like the way the crowd was chanting her name, they showed her a ton of love.

Fousey's brothers house is amazing. I love to have a backyard like that!

Also the new house he is building - is that his or his parents? Fousey went back and forth on that a bit there.

Lastly, HUGE congrats on reaching 8 million subs! Now lets see how long it takes for 9, I bet like 4-5 months tops.

I loved how Roman gave those tickets to the 2 girls - you know it made their year. They bursted in to tears immediately. You can see their mom was all smiles in the background too.

Do anyone know if someone has filmed any of his shows? I'd really like to see what it's all about.

I'm sure if there was, Roman's or Fousey's people would be all over it shutting it down fast. They would have to protect their investment.

I wonder what they are going to do on their time off. With Fousey staying at Romans place you know something funny is going to go down.

This was a great vlog, it had everything in it! How the heck did Fousey roll that quad? lol. It took both of them to get it back up right .. so it had to take quite a bit to roll it. I also like Fousey's reaction to trying ripple chips and apple sauce. You can tell he's not a fan and I loved everyone else's reaction to him trying it.

How many times did it take Roman to land that second basketball shot? :p

Fousey is a little crazy, he must have taken that quad out for a hell of a spin haha.

That was a pretty emotional night for everyone. I liked the fact how much love they showed for his kids coming out on stage and how much respect they had when leaving after the show was over. I think the highlight for me was when Britney was beating up Fousey on stage for shaving Roman's head haha. He better sleep with one eye open ... :p

No kidding! I had a feeling there would be no video after his day off at home. Also, I watched part of that vlog again and didn't realize how well Fousey gets along with Roman's parents. Can't wait to see what's happens next on the rest of the tour!

That's cool that Kane can kick start his own motorcycle now. Roman seems happy about his new bike and I'm jealous of Dale's new pool.

Did something happen in Detroit? Why didn't film more of the event? All we see is a 4 seconds clip of the crowd.

I was thinking that as well. He probably was just worried about 'always showing the same thing in the vlogs'.

Now there's something I haven't seen before - A full sized gummi pizza. His fans always send him the best stuff! haha

It's really neat to see the inner workings of a pinball machine. I personally love them and really want the "fun house" pinball machine. They don't make them anymore, but 11,000 or so were made in the day - so they are still out there.

It looks like Roman is going to relax for these 2 weeks and just do fun home blogs!

I like the fact that the pinball machine is made in such a way that the homeowner can fix it himself.

So Roman finally gets a boosted board! He's going to have a ton of fun on that thing.

How many orders are they getting if they are processing a 1000+ in a single day? I know they said they were trying to catch up, but that's just crazy.

Yeah, that's insane amount of orders. This doesn't surprise me though .. parents will buy up all the merch for their kids because of the positive message it sends. It's a good thing he trademarked "smile more", since he obviously has something big going over there.

I've also noticed he has 3 trademarks for the same name, the first one is already being cancelled. It appears some company (Disorderly Kids, LLC) is challenging his trademark and is taking him to court.

This is something interesting to keep an eye on considering that "Smile More" is not just his brand, but his whole movement. I hope everything turns out ok.

But on to more positive news, Roman buys his dad a new Corvette! That was one of the best vlogs I have watched of his. His dad's expression shock and happiness throughout this vlog was great! Also that car has to be expensive, it looks like it costs 100k. I can understand why Roman was struggling a bit whether or not to put this whole thing in the vlog (I'm glad he did though). This is a really personal thing that has a lot of meaning for him and his dad.

That was one of my favorite vlogs as well! That Corvette is sweet ...I saw lots of jealous people in the comments section. I also liked his dad's motivational speech. You can tell he was stunned by all of this. It's like winning the lottery .. even though the money is in your bank - you still can't believe it and it will take time to sink in. I really hope he enjoys his dream car. He deserves every bit of it.

Now on to yesterday's video .. I think those scooter kids are crazy good! It's nice to see their mom being so supportive. Also, Roman letting the oldest drive his GT-R was a nice touch. How old was he anyways? He looked too young to have a driver license.

Now that was a fun video to watch! They had some quality father & son time. That bridge building with popsicle sticks was a really neat idea. I'm surprised some of them held so much weight. It looks like that girl won good cash to go along with the trophy.

He also got a great shot of the corn maze with his drone. How did they do such a good job on the eagle?

I have no idea haha. Even watching that I shivered a little bit - I'd hate to get lost in there.

Finally the wait is over and the cop car gets destroyed! To be honest, I thought he was going to strap some C4 on it, or maybe get someone with a rocket propelled grenade launcher heh (hello homeland security :p). I couldn't think of a better way to destroy it that getting someone with a monster truck down to take care of business. First, I'm so jealous of him being able to drive it, that must have been really amazing. Secondly, I don't care how much property you have, the neighbors have to had heard that loud and clear. I wonder if he warned them at all ....

Also did he say that there was over a million people watching the livestream of this? that's just crazy.

Can you imagine how much his ears must of been ringing after driving the truck? No wonder he can't sleep at nights without a fan drowning out the ringing noise heh. That RC boat was pretty neat! It handled so well in the water (better than you would expect it too). Now he's off again on tour, and it sounds like he's going to be away for some time. When he's finished in the states ... he headed to Europe? That'll be interesting to watch!

Also, I can't wait to see if he can live stream the skydiving!
