Becoming an online celebrity

By Agencies

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness." The online streaming industry has arrived in China, grabbing more than 200 million users on nearly 200 live webcasting platforms in 2015, according to a report.

A good online anchor has 50,000 to 100,000 fans and can earn up to 100,000 yuan (US$14,560) per month. For some top-notch anchors, an annual income of nearly 10 million yuan is not out of reach.

Instant fame and quick money is attracting many good-looking girls to join the industry. Some of them are going to great lengths to become an online celebrity.
