Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to come on here and share my thoughts on Instant Influencer now that the finale has premiered. I will be talking about the winner and my thoughts on the final episode, so there will be spoilers. So if you have not yet watched it and don’t want the ending to be spoiled, wait to read this after you have watched it. Otherwise, let’s just dive right in.
If you aren’t sure what Instant Influencer is, it is a YouTube Original Series that James Charles did on his YouTube Channel. It is completely free to watch and there are four episodes. It is a beauty competition show where six people competed to win and become the next “Instant Influencer”. They got a whole new set up, a ton of money, and a few other things including a collaboration video with James Charles himself.
Before we get into the actual show, I first want to say that before this show I was not a follower of James Charles. It was nothing personal against him, I just didn’t really get into his videos because he does a lot of really intense and more entertaining videos. I am more drawn to wearable makeup tutorials and reviews, so I never really got into his channel and followed him super closely.
But when I heard that he was coming out with a reality competition show, I was instantly intrigued. It combines two of my favorite things: beauty and reality competition shows. So I knew I would definitely be watching. I watched every episode every Friday when it came out, and I will say as far as overall thoughts go, I really enjoyed it. There were a few things that I think could have made it better, but for the first season it was really good.
I was really bummed that Kailin didn’t win because I think she really grew and I loved watching her. I am now subscribed to her YouTube Channel and I think she is absolutely phenomenal. Ashley was really good too, but there is something about Kailin that I was just really drawn to. I feel like she really pushed herself and put it all out there, so it would have been great to see her win.
But every elimination before that I 100% agreed with. I thought all the decisions that were made were done really well and it was really fun to see everyone grow and take on the challenges. But the final three absolutely deserved to be there and the last episode was really fun to watch. All of the influencers were super talented and really put it all on the line.
I really wish there had been one more episode and they had took it down to two finalists instead of three. I know there was probably a reason that they could only do four episodes, but I think five would have made it even better. I also wish there was a way that fans could have helped make the final decision. I don’t think it would have changed the outcome, but it would have been nice.
But overall, it was a really great series. I hope there is a season two in the future. I really enjoyed this and I even ended up watching more of James Charles. I really enjoy his personality and he really brings so much happiness and joy into my life. So I have been watching his videos like crazy recently and I’m really loving them. He is a very polarizing person and I love that.
I highly recommend checking out Instant Influencer if you have not already. If you have, let us know your thoughts in the comments. Who would you have picked to win?
