In a new Reddit thread, fans are discussing an interesting detail about Evan Stewart and Carlin Bates’ financial situation. They pointed out that Evan and Carlin recently purchased a Tesla. One Bringing Up Bates fan priced it all out with the specific model the couple bought. The fan wrote, “I was curious so I looked up the average monthly lease cost for a Tesla Model X Plaid, which is the same model car that Evan and Carlin recently purchased. If you put $7,500.00 down, the average monthly lease payment is $2,196.00.”

It’s unclear whether the couple leased the car, bought it outright, or are making payments. But fans are slamming them for spending so much money on a car. Some Reddit users think the couple should be more cautious with their finances, especially because there’s no telling how long they can keep making money on social media.

One fan said, “They’re so stupid esp since their main incomes is the boutique and YouTube. I really wonder how they’re affording their constant eating out, vacations, their house, Tesla and Carlin’s medical bills esp in this economy.” 

Someone else pointed out, “They should take note from Kelton and Josie. Both probably earn way more combined with their businesses and they bought a used Ford! Very smart with their money.” 

As mentioned, fans were surprised to see that Carlin promoted a slot machine game. However, many think it has to do with her and Evan needing to pay the loan on their Tesla. This could explain why they’re being less picky about their ads.
