The first social media star is getting her own wax figure in Madame Tussauds New York City Wax Museum. Jenna Marbles, known as Jenna Mourey in the real world, has over 15 million YouTube subscribers with 1.8 billion views. She also hosts a podcast with her boyfriend Julien Solomita and hosts a countdown on SirusXM, People notes. "I can't believe I'm getting my own figure,” she said in a statement, according to Perez Hilton. “Watching the studio's team work so diligently to get every last detail of me was an interesting experience, and I can't wait to see the finished result!" Marbles posted a video on Instagram of the team taking measurements and sculptures of herself in order to get her figure perfect. Her wax figure is set to debut in October at Times Square’s Madame Tussauds tourist spot and Marbles will be featured holding her phone out in “selfie” mode, which allows fans to take a selfie with their favorite YouTube star.
