Just in time for VidCon, Madame Tussauds announced the first Internet sensation chosen to be a part of their iconic New York City attraction: Jenna Marbles.

Marbles, whose real name is Jenna Mourey, has a whopping 1.8 billion views and over 15 million subscribers on her comedic YouTube channel. She also hosts a countdown on SiriusXM and a podcast with her boyfriend Julien Solomita.

"I can't believe I'm getting my own figure," she said in a press release. "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' figure, which is slated to be unveiled later this fall, will be holding a phone in selfie-ready position.

The video queen joins fellow YouTubers Anthony Padilla, Ian Hecox, Zoella and Alfie Deyes in getting a wax double. Smosh's statues will be housed in Madame Tussauds San Francisco after touring across the U.S, while Zalfie's will soon join Madame Tussauds London.
