Brooklyn & Bailey Share Bailey McKnight & Asa Howard's Proposal Video - Watch Now!

It’s been almost two weeks since Bailey McKnight got engaged to longtime boyfriend Asa Howard!

Now, the 21-year-old YouTuber has shared her proposal video on her Brooklyn & Bailey twin channel.

“I met Asa met five years ago WAY BACK in 2016 when I was only 16 and he was 15. I didn’t know it then, but I had just met my future husband! It took a year of him pursuing me, and me constantly putting him in the FRIEND ZONE, before I realized what a catch he really was! On Feb 25, 2017, Asa and I officially started dating, ending the day with my very first kiss!” Bailey wrote in the description.

“In the beginning of this proposal video, there is a small outtake taken when Brooklyn and I were filming our music video for Simple Things in May, 2017. In that moment, Brooklyn and my mom had put Asa up to the task of pranking me with a fake wedding ring and proposal! Little did I know then that four years later Asa would be the one to OFFICIALLY propose to me… and I wouldn’t have it ANY. OTHER. WAY!” she continued.

“As Asa walked me out to where he planned to propose, I started bawling my eyes out when I figured out what was going on… I literally had NO clue! The date 4/3/21 will forever be a day to remember for the both of us.❤️ It might seem small to you, but it was like even the world was counting down for us!”

“I’m so glad I got to say YES to my forever! (I’m still having a hard time remembering to call Asa my fiancé instead of boyfriend LOL!)”

Congratulations once again to Bailey and Asa!!!

YouTube's 'Instant Influencer' Names New Season 2 Host!

YouTube's 'Instant Influencer' Names New Season 2 Host!

A couple of weeks ago it was announced that James Charles will not be returning to host season two of Instant Influencer.

Now, it has just been revealed that Zach “ZHC” Hsieh is taking on hosting duties for the YouTube Originals series, according to Variety.

The second season will have a prize of $100,000 for one lucky up-and-coming artist.

10 artists will compete by putting “their best creativity and artistry on display through a variety of challenges — including a 10-hour painting endurance challenge and a collaboration challenge to make the most engaging video with a top YouTube creator.”

The season will be shot in LA, with Zach and a panel of celebrity guest judges and industry experts asking the contestants to take on the challenges, and ultimately picking the new Instant Influencer. It will premiere later this year.

If you are unfamiliar with him, Zach Hsieh is a 22-year-old self-taught artist who is “known for YouTube videos showcasing his creative designs on everything from traditional canvases to iPhones, cars and even houses.” He’s even designed a bag for James Charles, which you can see in a post from last year below!

“I am super excited to host Season 2 of Instant Influencer,” he told Variety. “I’m so grateful for this huge opportunity given to me by YouTube to pay it forward to other up-and-coming artists. I can’t wait to show everyone our first YouTube originals show!”

James Charles Is No Longer Hosting 'Instant Influencer' Season 2

James Charles Is No Longer Hosting 'Instant Influencer' Season 2

James Charles is parting ways with his YouTube competition series Instant Influencer!

The 21-year-old beauty vlogger will no longer be the host of the show, nor will he be a part of it.

“We can confirm Season 2 of the YouTube originals series Instant Influencer will take a new creative direction, including a new host,” a YouTube spokesperson told Variety. “We thank James for a great first season, and look forward to building on the show’s success by expanding the opportunity to showcase a diversity of creators across the YouTube platform in our upcoming season.”

Though James is no longer attached to the show, it’s still moving forward, and will reportedly not only have a new host, but will also focus on a different category of creators. The new host and details will be announced soon.

James hosted and was a key part of Instant Influencer season one. He even shared that he had a lot of ideas for the first season, but because it was the first, they weren’t able to do things he had hoped to. He also announced the second season and teased some great things coming.

Why Is Demi Lovato's YouTube Docu-Series 4 Parts? Director Explains

Why Is Demi Lovato's YouTube Docu-Series 4 Parts? Director Explains

Demi Lovato‘s new docu-series Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil is premiering on YouTube today (March 23)!

The 28-year-old’s four part documentary is “an honest look back at some of the most trying times in Lovato’s life. For the first time, Lovato will open up about every aspect that led to her nearly fatal overdose in 2018, and her awakenings in the aftermath as viewers are granted unprecedented access to the superstar’s personal and musical journey over the past three years, including footage from when the initial production for this project began during Lovato’s 2018 Tell Me You Love Me World Tour.”

Demi previously released another documentary, Simply Complicated, back in 2017, but that was just an hour and 18 minutes long.

The director of Dancing With The Devil, Michael D Ratner (pictured here), is explaining why the series is broken up into four parts.

“I think that four parts felt right to me because we cover so many topics. If it was one film released at once, I didn’t think that we would get our due dialogue on each topic,” he told THR.

“There are so many conversations that Demi and I hope spark as a result of this — important conversations. To release everything at once would have resulted in glossing over some stuff that I think deserves its own moment in time and its own big conversation,” he added.

If you missed them, check out photos and video from the premiere of the series on Monday night (March 22).
