Bethany Mota may have reason to dance in the near future…
The 18-year-old half-Mexican YouTube vlogger and fashionista has reportedly been cast for season 19 of ABC’s celebrity ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars, according to TMZ.
If Mota’s casting news holds true, the decision seems to recognize that there’s more to a “star” than someone who appears on a television or film screen. There’s another screen that counts these days… the computer screen.
Not only does the charming and charismatic Mota have more than nine million subscribers across her two YouTube channels (Macbarbie07 and BethanysLife), she also has 3.6 million Instagram followers, 1.9 million on Twitter, and even a line at Aeropostale.
Mota recentlt judged an episode of Project Runway alongside Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen earlier this year, and even scored a winning surfboard at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards for Choice Female Web Star.
Mota would reportedly dance alongside other reported celebrities: Back to the Future’s Lea Thompson, Pretty Little Liars’ Janel Parrish, Olympian Lolo Jones and soap star Antonio Sabato Jr., among others.
