Reading Time: 2 minutes
Beauty YouTuber James Charles is tossing his hat into the talent show ring with a new competition. He recently announced that he’ll be hosting his own show for influencers, and there will be a big cash prize.
James says reality competition shows were all he watched growing up, and they’re still his “guilty pleasure.” Same James, same. So it’s only fitting that now he’s launching his very own competition, which he says he’s been planning for 3 years. Why is that giving us Jacklyn Hill flashback, keep those hairy, moldy lipsticks away from us girl.
James Charles Launches A Talent Show
He announced that the show is being produced by Brian Graden Media, and has been picked up by YouTube Originals. It’s set to debut in spring 2020, and is the first “beauty and social media influencer competition show of its kind.”
The show will be available to watch on James Charles’ channel for free. Six influencers will be flown out to Los Angeles to compete in challenges to become “the next beauty superstar.” The winner will receive a $50,000 grand prize, as well as other prizes that have yet to be revealed.
In order to enter for a chance to be on the show, you must be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the United States, and have an active YouTube channel. You can enter by uploading a five-minute chitchat get-ready-with-me video. Check out the video above for more info about what to include, and fill out your application here.
If you’re not entering to compete, James encourages you to like and share video entries that you enjoy. It will apparently play a “major role” in who gets chosen.
