Social media star meets her match

Madame Tussauds in New York has added its first YouTube personality to its collection of celebrity wax figures.

Jenna Marbles is a YouTube personality and vlogger, with over 15 million subscribers on her channel and over 1.8 billion video views.

SOUNDBITE: Jenna Marbles, YouTube personality, saying (English):

“Who thinks that this is going to happen to them in their life? Never. Certainly not by doing that in my room.”

More than 250 detailed measurements were taken of the online star to create the replica.

SOUNDBITE: Jenna Marbles, YouTube personality, saying (English):

“It was incredible to see how they match your eyes and your teeth and your hair, your gums. And my favorite part was probably the hand molds because it’s all gooey, it felt really good. My least favorite part was the mouth mold because I just had to sit there and stare into space for a while, just don’t say anything.”

Marbles’ likeness is not only the first social media star at the museum but it is also the first wax figure that is capable of taking a selfie with guests.

The figure holds a working phone in an outstretched arm.

Guests can pose, take a photo, and upload it to their phones via a touch screen tablet.
