No seriously, where has she been? We need some beauty recommendations ASAP. Lucky for us, the 24-year-old social media icon has created two new posts on her YouTube channel to give us an inside look into her current interests. Bethany, a self-made millionaire, has pulled back from the spotlight this year and only released six YouTube videos. Although, her content has changed from weekly clothing hauls to home decorating and social issues, her fans remain faithful as ever. Proving, yet again, that girls do run the world.
Who is Bethany Mota?
If you don’t already know, Bethany Mota is a famous YouTuber who has amassed over 9 million subscribers. That’s in addition to her 4.6 million followers on Instagram and 65 thousand on Tik Tok. This is an impressive fan base that makes her one of YouTube’s most famous faces.
Move Away from YouTube
In one of her latest YouTube posts, she addresses why she has shied away from the social media platform in 2020. In a video titled ”Responding to assumptions about me”, Bethany responded to a statement from a fan that the young star was overwhelmed and secretly hated YouTube. She addressed this by divulging that she needed to take time off from the spotlight for her own mental health. She goes on to say that it has been a learning experience on how to balance her health with the fame surrounding her. She still posts occasionally to her Instagram, Tik Tok, and Twitter accounts.
What is Bethany Mota doing now?
With the past decade being so lucrative for her, it’s understandable that she may want to enjoy the pay-off. The 24-year-old has an estimated net worth of 3 million, with about 50,000 dollars in passive income coming from her YouTube channel’s ads alone. Her line with Aéropostale also generated about 50 million in sales although it’s unclear how much the star makes herself from the contract. She also continues to receive brand and skincare endorsements that pay generously.
Living in San Fernando Valley
In 2018, she purchased a beautiful 2.2 million dollar starter home in San Fernando’s Studio City neighborhood. The traditional white two-story features sprawling wood floors, plenty of natural light, and a two-car garage. Not to mention, it includes a picture-perfect outdoor area with a luxurious rectangular pool.
The perks of being a homeowner has also given Bethany a chance to spend more time with her family. Recently, one of her videos showcased her father adding his handyman expertise to a bedroom renovation. The social media icon also has an older sister, Brittany Mota-Wiley, who she is very close with. Mrs. Wiley, a vlogger herself, has two young girls who regularly appear on Bethany’s Instagram stories. Although Bethany does not have any children of her own, she stated in one of her latest videos that she would like them in the distant future.
Bethany Mota has been dating her boyfriend, Dominic Sandoval, for the last three years. Dominic, AKA D-Trix, is a YouTube sensation himself. He is best known for breakdancing, and made it to the Top 8 of “So You Think You Can Dance?” Bethany is no stranger to the dance scene and placed 8th on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2014. This could be part of the reason the two clicked so effortlessly, despite their ten-year age difference. This year the couple has posted Tik Tok challenges that are cute enough to melt your heart. In her recent Q&A video, she admitted that she would love to marry her live-in boyfriend. Whenever that occurs, fans have no doubt that she will give them the insider tips behind creating the perfect day.
Her new home has proven very inspirational for Bethany, who created a recent YouTube video illustrating a humorous (and adorably clumsy) interior redesign of one of the rooms. Always relating to her fans, she shows the highs and lows of taking on a DIY challenge. The beautiful home and pool have become consistent backdrops for her content, giving us a glimpse into her private life.
Bethany also openly admitted to being addicted to the Nintendo Switch. She stated that she played the popular game, “Animal Crossing” for five days straight. She said she actually got excited when seeing real-life fruit trees. No worries though, all that hard work farming wasn’t wasted. She attributes the video game to teaching her a great deal about self-discipline.
A Political Interview
The presidential race is currently at the forefront of many American’s minds. Bethany Mota, wanting to spread important political information to her fans, joined a collective of influencers in speaking with the former Vice President. The video between them is short and sweet discussing his thoughts on leadership.
This summer, Bethany teamed up with Always brand to help support the nonprofit organization Girls on the Run International. The organization helps girls achieve and maintain confidence during puberty. This mimics Beth’s own adolescent story of being bullied and having to find her confidence by sharing her passions.
It might be a little longer before regular clothing hauls appear on her feed again. It seems she has taken this year to relax and recalibrate, a luxury that has no doubt been funded by her hard work the last decade. The internet has had the privilege of watching this young woman grow into a confident influencer who cares about social issues. So, what is Bethany Mota doing now? Bethany Mota is her same bubbly self. She has been enjoying her new home and relaxing with her family and boyfriend.
