Get ready to see LaurDIY like never before! That’s right, the YouTube star — whose real name is Lauren Riihimaki — just dropped the first trailer for her upcoming competition series, Craftopia, and from the looks of it, there’s going to be a lot of glitter involved!
“We don’t ever want you to stop being your awesome, creative self,” the 26-year-old told contestants before explaining the rules of the competition.
For those who missed it, each episode will involve Lauren, alongside three judges and three kids competing for $5,000. All they have to do to win the money and a trophy is, according to the trailer’s description, complete two “larger-than-life challenges, making the most amazing creations the world has ever seen.” When can fans expect to see these epic creations come to life? Well, mark your calendars because Craftopia is set to premiere on HBO Max when the streaming service officially launches on May 27!
As fans know, the DIY queen isn’t the only internet celebrity with a competition series in the works. That’s right, beauty vlogger James Charles‘ new reality show, Instant Influencer, is almost here! The upcoming series will hit YouTube on April 24, and according to Variety, it will feature six aspiring makeup artists as they show off their skills and compete for the grand prize of $50,000. It’s also been reported that fans can expect tons of special guests to make appearances on the series, including celebrities and industry veterans. How epic does that sound?! Not only will James act as the host of the upcoming reality show, but he also directed it and serves as executive producer, so there’s no doubt that it’s going to be epic.
“We’re going to take beauty content and blow it up to a place that has never been done before,” the beauty guru teased in a video posted back in November 2019.
