Tessa Brooks at Universal Pictures’ ‘Blockers’ Premiere at Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, Los Angeles, California on Tuesday April 3, 2018.
This little “X” tattoo on Tessa Brooks’ left side represents Team 10, which is a group channel of YouTubers founded by Jake Paul. She used to be part of along with her friend Erika Costell. The collective all live in the same house and create content together. “X” is the roman numeral for 10.
Tessa Brooks left Team 10 in January 2018. She credits the team with helping her grow her confidence in front of the camera and says it was a great experience that she looks back on fondly. However she and the rest of the team were headed in different creative directions. “You have to know when to let to go, and when to let things be,” she says.
