Fifth grader Amber Kelley is the only U.S. finalist in Jamie Oliver's "search for a food tube star" contest, winning the spot with her recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce. Also, she was super adorbs in the video she submitted.
The 10-year old has appeared on the Today show, Q13 and even won herself a trip to the White House earlier this year as the Washington state winner of a nationwide "Healthy Lunchtime Challenge." The Seattle Times reports that Amber is by far the youngest finalist from among 250+ entries, with others including a 31-year-old from France and a 28-year-old from Argentina.
The future of Amber's online celebrity fame is now up to the general public. The video with the most YouTube "likes" by Sept. 22 will win the competition. Here's Amber's, which at press time is just shy of 16,000 "likes".
