Alex Of Wassabi Productions Explains Why Everyone Wants To See Him Shirtless [INTERVIEW]

Like so many Fresh Princes of Bel Air, A.C. Slaters and Lord Byrons, Alex Burriss of YouTube’s Wassabi Productions is a ladies’ man. So much so that a cursory Google search of “Alex Wassabi” yields the result “Alex Wassabi Shirtless” followed by “Alex Wassabi Birthday,” which if I understand fangirls (I don’t), tells me people want to send him a shirt on his birthday, or something like that.

It’s rare that Alex, acting as one-half of the Wassabi Productions comedy team is without his best friend and YouTube partner Roi. But as the fates had it, we here at NMR caught Alex without his companion in comedy during an impromptu trip to Los Angeles. In an unprecedented solo interview, Alex was able to unwind without Roi around, and give us some dirt on his best friend’s dating life, his own love for Melanie Iglesias (join the club, pal) and why, oh why everyone wants to see him shirtless.


For the interview in video format, please go to the last page.

What’s it like being what’s known as “the handsome half” of Wassabi Productions?

Alex Burriss: I get proposed to daily, and people send me weird stuff. But,there is some really cool stuff. Like I got some Muay Thai gear from Thailand. I get stuffed animals; I get a lot of stuffed animals.

Have you had any insane stalkers?

We are at a hotel and we are renting a room, and we’re standing a foot from the receptionist, and she’s like, “Oh yeah, we can get you a room.” And I was like, “Yeah, okay cool.” Then this kid walks by in front of us with a camera in his face and just walks by in that foot space and just walks away. Then every once in awhile we’ll see him outside our hotel door or when we go outside. He was just a kid, so it’s fine.
