Ryan Serhant: For the Record, I Do Not Buy Likes

Ryan Serhant addresses Fredrik and Luis' accusation that he buys social media followers.

Is Ryan Serhant Buying Social Media Followers?

Well this was an interesting episode. 38 West 87 is one of the coolest properties we filmed this year. It's so cool! From the private gym and wine cellar to all of the outdoor space and fireplaces, it's a very special property and I love that you all get to see it. Even more, you all get to meet more of my amazing team in this episode!!! Rob Canberg is my team leader in the Hamptons where he sells more than I would ever be able to sell myself. Sebastian Wolski is my team leader in LA and he works harder than ME. And Johnny Mansilla is the best agent in Miami - and he crushes it. I was excited to watch the beginning of the 38 West 87th storyline, as it is one of my favorites, but then I saw the little coffee scene between Fredrik and Luis.

How to Watch

Catch up on Below Deck on Peacock or the Bravo App.

In five years of doing this show, I've never lied about either of my castmates. Have I said mean things? Yes. Have I handled myself poorly in some situations? Of course. Have I learned from those moments and tried to grow from them? 100%. But I have never resorted to petty lying to make myself feel better.

I have a decent social media presence for someone on television. I use it as a way to promote business, my favorite charities, and those I love. I also think of it as a visual diary. Emilia and I always talk about how crazy it would be if we could just go online and see what our parents were doing on a random day in the 70s. How mind-blowing would that be? Our kids will be able to do that, and that's exciting for us as we prepare to get married and start a family.

But apparently, no matter what you do, there will be people who question your integrity, your intentions, and...the quality of your social media followers? I apologize if some of my followers have no friends (if you're reading this and you're one of them, please DM me and I will follow you back). For the record, I do not "buy likes". That's stupid, and I'm going to leave it at that. If I did buy likes, I would definitely buy millions of them so I could compete with Kylie Jenner. I remember every single dollar I've ever made, and that's the last place I would ever spend my money.  

I would suggest that if you're so upset about how well I'm doing, to maybe stop spending so much time in coffee shops in Brooklyn on a Tuesday afternoon talking about me.

Oh and I just checked, my Mom has zero posts and five followers (my brothers and sisters) and she always "likes" my posts. She's on retainer though. Now you know.

So while my buddies talk about me behind my back about how I buy and sell followers, I will be busy buying and selling real estate - around them - in circles.  

Thank you all for continuing to watch Million Dollar Listing New York and for supporting us. I love you all no matter what.
