1. She is only 16!
Just when people are shocked by how much Billie Ellish can achieve at the age of 17, Charli is taking over the TikTok world at 16! Born in 2004, Charli has been a regular schoolgirl until she decided to take her passion for dancing to the app known for its short, fun clips.

2. She has been a competitive dance since 5!
Charli started dancing since she was 3. Her fierce personality and love for dancing led her to dance competitively at 5. Since then, she hasn't stopped! Dancing will always be her passion. Before joining the billion-user app, the young dancer was showcasing her dance skills on her Instagram.
There are still plenty of photos and videos on her Instagram showing the competitions she had joined. She was the dancing queen long before she joined the TikTok world!
3. She is one of the fastest growing TikTokers on the app
Would you believe it if I tell you Charli only joined TikTok last year? She posted her first video on TikTok in March 2019. Her first video to go viral was the side-by-side dance video she made to "Move With Joy". Then, she gained 36 million followers in 6 months. That magnitude of growth was almost unheard of for someone who's not originally a celebrity.
4. She is a member of The Hype House
In case you don't know what The Hype House is, it's an invitation-only membership club for the collective TikTok personalities. All those shining bright and gaining traction on TikTok are in The Hype House based in LA. Basically, it's a place for the super fancy and famous TikTokers.
5. She only wears little to no makeup on her videos
Not a common scene in the online world. Everyone is wearing thick makeup and turning into a different person while Charli is a real believer in being true to who you are. She puts on minimal makeup in all her videos and fans have spotted that she would even show her bare skin. Fans absolutely adore and love her for that.
In a world where celebrities feel the need to stay heavily covered with makeup, it's good to see someone taking a different stance and showing who they truly are!
6. She danced with J-Lo
What an honorable combination! Charli danced with J-Lo at the Super Bowl before the game. She expressed how excited she was and even made a TikTok about it!

The dual is taking over TikTok, making it hard for others to compete!
8. Her family is like the Kardashians on TikTok (in a good way)
Charli and Dixie, together with her parents, are all online personalities similar to the Kardashian family. Since the family opened up a YouTube channel sharing their life and to let fans get to know them outside of the dancing world, people have taken more of an interest in the family's dynamics.
Just like how the Kardashians rose to fame, there have been talks to make the family a reality show, exactly like the Kardashians.

Her fans would probably know this already. Charli has shared countless times of her love for the popular fast-food chain. She can be seen getting orders from Dunkin' Donuts many times.
