Belle Delphine, the 20-year-old gamer girl, egirl and internet personality who was previously known for selling her own bathwater online has returned after a 7 months internet hiatus. Belle Delphine first announced she was back on her YouTube channel, which had remained inactive previously, by posting a new video where she danced to a song with lyrics about herself.
The video begins with the lyrics: “You were thinking I died? Bitch, surprise. I still got the double thicc thighs, French fries.” Further in her song, Belle Delphine also proved she filmed the video recently as she mentions Elon Musk and Grimes’ new baby X Æ A-12 and announces she’s on TikTok too under @babyBelleDelphine. So far, the gamer girl has only posted three videos but she has already amassed 147,000 followers.
In her comeback song, Belle Delphine also references the time she sold out her own bathwater online and made headlines for it. In the video, she sings: “Bathwater sold out, big sad.”
Last year, Belle Delphine also became the centre of death rumours. These started after fans realised she had posted a video on Instagram on 19 February which showed her dancing to a song about suicide, before brandishing a (presumably fake) gun.
This caused panic among her then three million Instagram followers, who speculated as to whether or not Belle Delphine had actually died. By beginning her comeback video with the lyrics “You were thinking I died? Bitch, surprise,” the egirl is clearly mocking these rumours.
Last but not least, in her new song, Belle Delphine mentions OnlyFans, asking viewers to “buy my OnlyFans you big chad.” Under @BelleDelphine on OnlyFans, the internet sensation asks for fans to pay a $35 monthly subscription in order to access her content. So far, Belle Delphine has 11 posts on her page.
One thing is for sure, now that Belle Delphine is back online, internet culture will definitely have a whole lot more to talk about.
Mary-Belle Kirschner, better known online as Belle Delphine, is a 20-year-old gamer girl, egirl and internet personality who started posting makeup tutorials on YouTube in August 2016. Since then, she has become one of the most famous egirls and has made headlines for selling her bathwater to horny teenagers. Who exactly is Belle Delphine?
Born in South Africa, Belle Delphine eventually moved to the UK where she still lives today. In 2016, she uploaded on YouTube her first video, a makeup tutorial on how to achieve a perfect cat-eye. At this time, she had a simple aesthetic—natural hair colour, basic teenager clothes.
Only in 2018 did Belle Delphine start presenting typical egirl characteristics such as having pink hair, wearing cat ears. She calls herself a “weird elf kitty girl.” Along with this new style, she also started posting cosplay pictures as well as PG-13 and NSFW pictures online.
Belle Delphine became most known for her ‘ahegao’—a facial expression meant to mimic the orgasms of hentai characters.
Along with her ahegao selfies, Belle Delphine posted on her Instagram account videos of herself flirtatiously eating a raw egg, putting googly eyes on a dead octopus and eating pictures of her followers and other internet personalities.
Speaking to The Guardian in July 2019, Belle Delphine said: “I’m lucky. I can do crazy things and get to see the world react to it, and there’s definitely enjoyment in that, even if it’s sometimes a little scary. I get a bigger reaction to my weirder content but I think that’s only possible because I also make risqué content.”
Yes, she actually did. The idea came from her followers, who used to comment under her Instagram posts that they would drink her bathwater. One day, while thinking of new ideas to make money, Belle Delphine decided to bottle and sell her bathwater online.
She’s fooled her fans before. She once posted on Instagram a picture of herself wearing fishnet stockings and “F*ck Me!” pasties and told her followers in the caption that if the photo got 1 million likes, she would create a Pornhub account and post pornographic videos.
The picture did get more than 1 million likes and Belle Delphine sort of kept her word. She made a Pornhub account and uploaded 12 videos which included a video titled ‘Belle Delphine gets SCISSORED’ where she was shown cutting up paper with scissors, and another one titled ‘Belle Delphine plays with her PUSSY’ where she played with two stuffed cats.
Belle Delphine once posted mugshot pictures that included a watermark from the London Metropolitan Police. While many were quick to assume the story was real, others noted that Metropolitan Police doesn’t put a watermark on its mugshots in the first place.
Although it remains unclear whether she was truly arrested or not, it seems that Belle Delphine used this as another way to make her fans talk and engage with her online.
Apart from selling her bathwater, Belle Delphine makes money on other online platforms such as Patreon and Snapchat.
Belle Delphine charges up to $2,500 a month for access for her exclusive ‘lewd’ Snapchat content and has more than 4,000 followers on Patreon.
After her Instagram account got deleted in July, 2019 for some unknown reason—although posting pornographic content seems like the obvious one—Belle Delphine hasn’t been as present online as before. Many other accounts claiming to be the egirl popped up soon afterwards but none has been proven as the real one.
Belle Delphine is still active on Snapchat and Patreon—still making money. In a world where social media influencers all look the same, Belle Delphine has succeeded in tapping into the right online subculture and by creating content that is as weird as it is fascinating.
