Anastasia opens up on the prom documentary

On Wednesday, September 16th 2020, Anastasia released a YouTube video entitled ‘School Mukbang & Prom Story time aka the prom from hell’. In this video, she was joined by some friends, including Joel, who was the star of Not So Sweet Sixteen.

Many of Anastasia’s fans have been curious to hear a full account of her prom, as she has alluded to the difficult filming on TikTok in the past. Anastasia posted a TikTok in September 2020 saying that she “fell out with [her] entire friendship group” over prom and then the network filming her prom “cut me from the final show.”

In Anastasia’s YouTube video, she recounted how she was emailed asking for her prom to be documented. They chose her as her YouTube career was taking off. But Anastasia said: “They just wanted drama from the whole thing… they were trying to get to the story.”

Anastasia also said she wanted to vlog all of her prom experience, but Channel 5 said they would cover it and send her the footage. This, however, did not happen. Anastasia explained:

I was going to film prom, do prom get ready with me, going to get my dress, but they said ‘It’s fine as we’re filming it all for you, so you don’t need to’. So I literally have nothing of prom… They said we could have all the raw footage.
