Why does the registration of her fansite predate her first video by months? Plus, she's cute.

Okay. I don't see how whis is an Alternate Reality Game. Some kind of attempt at a blog teen soap opera, maybe.

It's not her video blog, that's for sure.

could be guerilla advertising for a TV show... They have done it before.

The question is: if it's fake, then who is benefiting? Right now there's no banner ads, no product placement, no income stream of any sort.

So it might be viral marketing of some sort. *shrug*
