Jenna Marbles On How She Went From Go-Go Dancer To YouTube Star
Jenna Marbles became Huge on the Tube (#HOTT) following the 2009 release of her hilarious and self-deprecating take on makeup videos. Today, How to Trick People into Thinking You’re Good Looking remains the most popular of Jenna’s over 200 videos with nearly 60 million views. In this VH1-What’s Trending production of “Huge on the Tube,” Jenna Marbles spills the details of her rise to Internet fame.
She was working as a sports blogger during the day and a go-go dancer by night — and she was amazed how people didn’t recognize her from one position to the next. After all, her night job required much more makeup and hair styling.
Ironically, Jenna says that all of her makeup strategies were learned from other videos on YouTube.
“I was like, ‘why is everyone watching this?’ There’s lots of this stuff on the Internet.”
