Mostly A’s - James Charles
If you chose mostly A’s, you are the one and only, young, MUA YouTuber, James Charles. You most likely get roped into drama because you hang out with the “cool kids” who don't have the best rep, but you mean well. For example, James has been caught in the middle with MUA’s like Tati Westbrook and has had a few scandals regarding “predatory” accusations as well as claims of racist comments.
When you’re not in drama you’re trying to focus on your personal ventures and growth. James rings this true with his own apparel and makeup line with Morphe. Don’t worry, as long as you keep your circle close and eyes on the prize, you’ll be less problematic. You got this sister!
Mostly B’s - Jake Paul
If you chose mostly B’s, you are the infamous Jake Paul. Unlike others, you do not shy away from the drama and most times provoke it. You like to be the center of attention and throw all the big parties, with the hottest girls and guys. Many have a hard time finding you to be sincere, but you just don’t care. The only apology people will get from you is iPhone notes screenshot or a diss track IF they are worthy.
With Logan Paul as an older brother and over 20 million subscribers, Jake doing is his own thing despite his terrible scandals around the Team 10 House, Tana Mongeau, and the George Floyd protest looting. We aren’t sure that this personality type can be unproblematic, but it’s okay because people in this category probably don’t mind.
Mostly C’s - Tana Mongeau
If you chose mostly C’s, you are Miss Tana Mongeau. Obsessed with the parties, weird life experiences, and the star life, you might aim to be better, but always find yourself right where you started. Setting yourself up for success isn’t exactly your forte, but you live your life unapologetically (almost too much).
Like Tana, you may throw big events with tons of red flags like TanaCon, and date people with even more red flags, like Jake Paul. You like hanging with the untamed celebrities like Noah Cyrus and Bella Thorne. People can find you at the nearest club, and if someone has something to say about it, you’ll get to the apology when you can. You love your fans, but you may love yourself and your lifestyle just a bit more.
Mostly D’s - Trisha Paytas
If you chose mostly D’s, you are THE Trisha Paytas. Former stripper, TV-star, and current internet personality, you give zero f*cks and want your voice to be heard. You are an individual and live, dress, eat, and talk however you want. People know you for giving your honest opinion even when it’s unsolicited. You hate to be silenced and don’t mind looking “dumb” or “weird” in front of thousands of people.
Trisha is known for her very public breakups, butting into drama on Tik Tok and Twitter, and lengthy mukbangs. She has not shied away from exposing other stars like Shane Dawson, James Charles, and even David Dobrik. We don’t intend on the drama ending there or ever for that matter. With Trisha's personality type, the fun, along with the problems, never stop!
