This Actor Knew a YouTube Star Was Getting Engaged Before She Did!
If you’ve been feeling empty since Awkward. or Faking It went off the air, you can fill your campy high school comedy needs with go90’s newest web series, Mr. Student Body President. The show, which stars Adventure Time‘s Jeremy Shada and YouTubers Arden Rose and Gabriel Conte is a satirical look inside a typical H.S. student government. If you follow Teen.com on Snapchat (username: Teencom), then you already know that Jeremy and Arden came for a visit last week to talk about their new show, on-set chemistry and share backstage secrets, including some insider knowledge on Gabe’s recent engagement to fellow YT star Jess Bauer!
While the 21-year-old had no idea her co-star was getting ready to pop the question, the 19-year-old was tipped off by his double-date partner.
“I was like, ‘How are you and Jess?’ And he was like, ‘Good! She’s coming back next month…I’m gonna pop the question.’ And I was like, ‘What?! That’s sick, dude!'”
Although Arden wasn’t in on the secret, she had no hard feelings.
“I’m so happy for them,” she gushed. “That’s gonna be so amazing. In a good five or six years they’re going to have the most beautiful children. Their genetic line is just real. It is rock solid.”
It’s clear that the MSBP cast is super close, but their time on set wasn’t all fun and games.
“There was so much monologue and dialogue, I had to spend a ton of time when I wasn’t at work still working, figuring out the lines, so I could be on set the next day,” the teen said.
Arden, impressed by her co-star’s work ethic chimed in saying, “I do not know how you came to work every day with a smile when I knew you were staying up until 9:30 p.m. and having to get up at 4 a.m… It was nuts and you physically had time to go home, to eat, throw something in the microwave and sleep. That was my life.”
But despite all the hard work, both young stars loved being a part of the project.
“I did a chemistry read with Jeremy and by the end of it I was just like, ‘This is a really amazing show and the writing is so great.’ I just feel honored to be a part of it in any facet.” So cute!
You can watch a new episode of Mr. Student Body President every Thursday on go90!
