Vlogger couple JaMill returned to YouTube on September 15, with a video explaining why they deleted their original channel.
The couple, Jayzam Manabat and Camille Trinidad, had a YouTube channel with over 12 million followers, but it was deleted on August 19.
In the first video on their new channel, they revealed that it was Camille who deleted the old channel, and that she did it after being triggered in an interview for a brand project.
“Pangit ng 2021 sa amin mga kaiigan, sobrang panget, dito kami sinubok, sinubok yung relasyon namin sa iba’t-ibang klaseng paraan…Parang gusto kami paghiwalayin talaga,” Jayzam said in the video.
(2021 was really hard on us, really hard, we were tested, our relationship was tested in different ways…it’s as if they really wanted us to break up.)
While he didn’t go into detail, he was presumably referring to the cheating scandal the couple was caught up in in April, when Camille publicly accused Jayzam of cheating on her with four different women. Jayzam later admitted to cheating and apologized for it.
Camille then shared that while they started fixing their relationship, she would still get easily triggered.
“So nag-heal na kami noon, pero akala namin kasi is yun na yun. Akala namin na pag sinabi naming okay na tayo, okay na kayo. Kasi may mga bagay na kunwari kahit may marinig ka lang na word na makakapagtrigger sa ‘yo, dirediretso na siya,” she said.
(We healed then, but we thought that was it. we thought that if we said we were okay, we were okay. But there are things like, for instance, hearing a word that would trigger you, and it would keep going from there.)
Jayzam said it came to the point where Camille would question his commitment to the relationship, and if he was only staying with her because they had a YouTube channel.
He then spoke about the interview that led Camille to delete the channel. He said that a brand had approached Camille to work with her for a long term project that required counseling to gauge Camille’s mental health.
Jayzam shared that he was around while they interviewed Camille, and he heard the questions they asked her – about if she felt okay, if things were already okay between them, and if their relationship was even real.
“So yun nga guys, natrigger ako, ako nagdelete ng channel kasi natrigger ako (so there guys, I was triggered. I deleted the channel because I was triggered),” Camille said, with Jayzam adding that they had argued before she deleted the channel.
“Paano kasi sabi, sa YouTube nalang ba kayo nag-aano…eh di magtatanong ako sa isip ko na parang, sa YouTube nalang ba lahat-lahat (They kept asking, are just doing things for YouTube…so I’d ask myself, is this all for YouTube)?” Camille said.
“Hanggang sa pumasok sa isip ni Camille talaga na baka mamaya nandito lang talaga ako dahil sa channel,” Jayzam said. “Dinelete niya, tapos ako gulat ako kasi nagflashback sakin lahat ng pinaghirapan namin ni Camille.”
(It came to a point that Camille was thinking that I was only here because of the YouTube channel…She deleted it, and I was so shocked and had flashbacks of everything we went through.)
Camille said she regretted deleting the channel so quickly and letting her emotions get the best of her, but Jayzam said that he understood why she did it.
“‘Wag kang mag-alala, wala akong pakialam kahit idinelete mo. Ikaw ang mahal ko, mas mahal kita kaysa sa channel na yun (Don’t worry, I don’t care that you deleted it. I love you, I love you more than that channel),” he said.
The couple shared that after they deleted the channel, they were able to focus on bonding and rebuilding their relationship.
As of this writing, their new YouTube channel already has 217,000 subscribers. – Rappler.com
