    You and Safyia are the women in Youtube in Shane Dawson’s level of quality content. Congratulations because the work, talent and dedication y’all put into your content truly shows.

    • Ariane Lévesque says:

      Jasmine R No I think she interpreted it that way because the original comment says “are the women in Youtube of Shane’s level” which gendered the whole argument. I don’t think the original comment was made to be sexist, but it did kind of come off as such.

    • Flower Child says:

      Ariane Lévesque I’m sorry if it sounded sexist because I didnt mean it that way. I used Shane as a standard because I believe his content is on another level of talent and quality, regardless of his gender.

    • Ariane Lévesque says:

      Flower Child Yes no worries I didn’t think you meant it in a sexist way at all ☺️ I just could see what the person who said it might’ve tought so, but to me it was pretty clear you just used Shane because he’s amazing (and that’s a fact).

I love your fear videos and your challenge excepted videos, one of my favorite videos is the marine video. ?This is my favorite video because I can tell you really stepped out of you confort zone for something you really wanted to accomplish.?I really hope you keep doing this and you turn into something bigger than you are now. Im really glad I found you on YouTube your are now one of my favorite people to watch and I’m glad I have someone as positive and relatable to look up to. ??

    Those Tippy Tops are killer to walk in, proud of you. I wore them in the Miss CA usa pageant, and I tripped on the stairs in them ?

  5. Little Mac says:

    You should try to do a bodybuilding competition, I think you could definitely do it!

  6. Lina Sketch says:

    Michelle! You should be a Drag King Show for a challenge Accepted!!!

  7. N. B. says:

    Michelle, I’m 5 feet 4.5 inches tall and I know that I would not have the guts to ever do what you did in this video, so damn successfully.
    I think the true lesson is to worry about yourself ONLY and not about what someone else thinks /says.
    Thanks for one of the best videos I’ve ever seen!

  8. KajaJens1 says:

    Norwegian designer!? Im from Norway 🙂

  9. Miss GemRose says:

    You should train to be an equestrian. If you actually experience the standardized riding technique it’s really hard.
    Also, I could probably never be a model! It seems so difficult ??

  10. Kyska Orrego says:

    I’ve always watched ANTM as a child and pretended to walk on a runway… I’m 5’4″ and not super slim

  13. Jennifer Gilmore says:

    When yall went to London..I followed you on IG and I thought it was Garrett taking you there for Valentines…OMG I’m shook

  14. Fatmata Sesay says:

    On the bright side, you would be the perfect height for women’s gymnastics.

  15. Shia Teague says:

    I’m 5’2″ and this really made my day. You’re so awesome for trying so hard for this and good for you for surrounding yourself with such awesome people ?

  16. Heehaw 101 says:

    the world: you cant be a runway model bc youre too short
    michelle: hold my beer bc challenge accepted

    • Peach Girl says:

      Heehaw 101 she literally only got it because of her YouTube following and connections, don’t try to front.

    • Michelle Khare says:

      Heehaw 101 lmfaoooo ???

    • toshi amiyumi says:

      Have u seen fashion runaways most of the girls probably have connections because besides being a sample size and being the right height those girls are not photgenic or striking. They look awkward. today fashion models aren’t like the models of the 90’s +Peach Girl

    • fibreoptik says:

      Plot twist: she doesn’t drink beer.

  17. M K says:

  19. Zoë Thompson says:
