Alexander Rhodes (/u/Alexanderr) is the focus of this week’s episode of Upvoted by reddit. We discuss his passion for film; getting into the entertainment industry; working as a background actor on Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher; his rise to internet fame with his role as Suspicious Onlooker; how he founded the r/NoFap subreddit; and how he raised money for /u/edify’s funeral. This episode also features an appearance from Tim Ferriss (/u/Tim-Ferriss)

 

Here is a statement from /u/edify’s father:

 

“While Jarod was alive he spoke of reddit briefly a few times. But I never heard him enough to look it up. We never knew this side of Jarod until the redditors started making comments with their contributions on GoFundMe. I am still amazed at how many people contributed to help us lay Jarod to rest. I would like to thank everyone for helping us. If I could, I would like to give a hug to everyone. So, here's an e-hug, for helping a disabled Dad bury his son. Thank You, and May God Bless all of You.”

 

This episode is sponsored by MeUndies and Stamps.com.
