Yikes! Dancing With the Stars fans are not loving on Bethany Mota, at all
When the Season 19 cast of Dancing With the Stars was announced, many viewers were left scratching their heads. Many of the names listed were not familiar to mainstream audiences.
One of those names was YouTube star Bethany Mota. To the younger generation, she is one of the most popular personalities on the site. The video blogger began her channel in June 2009 by sharing her fashion hauls with her fans. Since then, she's expanded to a fashion line at Aéropostale, her channel has grown to over 10 million subscribers and she's in the October issue of Seventeen magazine.
For an 18-year-old, that's an impressive list of accomplishments. However, some diehard DWTS fans were upset that a YouTube personality was included on this season's cast list. A few felt she didn't warrant the title of "star."
SheKnows took to Twitter to find out what the fans really felt about her presence on the show. Here's what they had to say.
Some weren't open to her appearing on the show at all because they felt that the dance competition show reaches an older demographic.
Others were hesitant, but they were willing to give Mota a chance.
The final category was a group of her fans who were excited by the Teen Choice Award winner's appearance on the show.
The real test will be out on that ballroom floor on Monday when the YouTube personality does the jive with dance pro Derek Hough. Fans will have to vote hard to keep Mota and her fellow celebrities on the show because the first couple goes home the following night. It's brutal out there on that dance floor.
