When someone is tired of hearing you speak, they interrupt you and say: cut to the chase. That’s how it felt with certain creators. It seemed as though we didn’t care to watch them struggle and put in the work to become “famous.” Instead, we made them big overnight. Was it because they had talent? I’ll let you be the judge of that.
1. Nicolette Gray – Beverly Hills Spoiled Brat
Nicolette Gray and her mom went on the show to discuss how spoiled she is and whether or not she should get a job. Her reaction stole to getting a job stole the show so much so that she then created a Youtube channel. I have to admit I watched a few episodes, where all we see is her famous life in Beverly Hills. Literally, that’s it. Take about cutting to the chase.
2. James Charles – Graduation Picture
Our first creator who made it big overnight is James Charles. Charles had posted his graduation picture and by the next day, millions of people shared it. To them, his make-up was unbelievably well-done. And to the rest of society, we had to do even more than share. Ellen had to invite him on his show, perhaps because he was the first male Covergirl. I’m sure they had been other make-up artists (males) who could have been on the cover but ok. Now, he has over 25 million subscribers on Youtube and even more on Instagram. Below is a video of Charles being interviewed by Ellen Degeneres, walking us through his overnight fame. He’s based in Los Angeles as of right now.
3. Trisha Paytas – Fast-reader
Before being famous on Youtube, Trisha Paytas was a waitress. In short, her talent is that she can read incredibly fast. Don’t believe me? Watch her on Ellen Degeneres show flying through one of Degeneres’ books. From then on, she’s made a name for herself on Youtube and the music industry (sort of!).
4. Bhad Bhadbie – (Cash Me Outside How Abt Dat)
Danielle Bregoli, also known as Bhad Bhadbie, was on Dr. Phil’s show. At the time, Bregoli was a troubled teen from Florida, disobeying her mother. While watching the show, we learn that she would physically assault her mother, steal cars, and run away. During a sit-down, the audience irritated Bregoli which prompted her to say: “Catch me outside, how abt dat!” Confused, Dr. Phil needed some clarification, meanwhile, the rest is history. She is now a musician, lives in LA, and rose to fame so quickly that by the end of it she had 18 million followers on Instagram.
5. Pietro Boselli – Hottest Math Teacher in the World
Lastly, Pietro Boselli was named the hottest math teacher in the world. A student in his math class had taken a photo of him on Facebook, which went viral. By making it big overnight, he’s since become an Internet sensation, where viewers droll over his handsome face and athletic body. Below is what he looks like. Yep, I know you, don’t even have to say it.
