Olivia Jade gained infamy for her role in the college admissions scandal. Her parents got her and her sister into college through dishonest means and Olivia Jade has been paying the price ever since. She joined the cast of Dancing With The Stars last fall to show the world her true colors.
Even though Olivia Jade and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy didn’t win the competition, they went much farther than many people thought they would. And the 22-year-old showed that there is a deeper side to her too.
So what’s she up to these days? Keep reading for more.
Olivia Jade managed to rebuild herself after falling from grace
After the college admissions scandal happened, people weren’t sure if Olivia Jade’s career would ever be the same. But she’s trying her best and really seems to be thriving these days.
According to Page Six, Dancing With The Stars “relaunched her as an even bigger star than she was before: receiving high-profile party and fashion show invitations, not to mention being paid by a new group of brands who want her to promote their goods.”
In the end, Olivia Jade ended up not needing college at all. Her career is revived and thriving after her DWTS appearance last fall.
“DWTS was a chance for people to really see who Olivia is: a hard worker, dedicated, and just a young adult trying to find her way in the world. It was a chance to reconnect the public to what made her so likable and relevant on her YouTube channel,” a source reportedly told Page Six.
“She’s been excited to get back to doing what she loves, which is all things beauty, fashion and connecting to followers. She’s attending more events, working with more brands — and she’s got some big deals in the works for 2022.”
The influencer apparently did lose her sponsorships with Amazon and Sephora, but she isn’t letting that hold her back. She now partners with Garage and Banana Bread Grails.
The influencer left the competition after learning many lessons
Even though many fans felt disappointed to see Olivia Jade leave the competition, she promised that wasn’t the end of her growth journey.
“I really found a drive and a work ethic that I think I’ve had since I was young, but maybe I haven’t been able to execute in the last few years. So it’s been really nice to find that again,” Olivia Jade told reporters including Page Six after her elimination.
“Hard work really does pay off, and when you really give something your all and that joy you genuinely feel from doing so, there’s nothing really like it,” the YouTuber continued. “It’s so rewarding.”
