YouTubeStars News 9-13-06 Lonelygirl15 is Jessica Rose!
Yesterday, the news broke that Lonelygirl15 (Bree) is not a real person. She is a character played by an actress named Jessica Rose. SiliconValleyWatcher found her myspace which had pics, and also a photobucket account. According to her myspace, Jessica is 19, lives in California, is in a relationship, and is straight. The myspace account is now set to private, but a copy of the page from March 2006 was found in the Google cache.
Watch this video by mgpapas, then read more about this at the lonelygirl15 wikipedia page.

Renetto's contests - results
Popular YouTuber, Renetto, has been conducting two popular contests. He decided to give away 100 webcams to 100 YouTube members who don't have webcams. He asked people to make a video by borrowing a camera or making a slideshow with Windows Movie Maker, telling why they should get a camera. Here is the latest news on this contest.
Renetto also hosted a contest in which he would choose one YouTube member to have their video shown on his account, thereby generating a lot of views for that person. The winner of that contest is PeriUrban and the video he posted on Renetto's page is here. It is of PeriUrban playing his guitar and singing. PeriUrban has a very nice voice!
