Rise to fame
Ryan Cummings became famous by accident in January 2018 when a brief video of her snarky facial expression was converted into a meme that was liked and shared by millions of people. With the Cheer Extreme All-Stars Senior Elite team, she competed in the ‘Spirit of Hope National Championship’ in Charlotte.
The camera focused on her face as Ryan Cummings prepared to deliver a high-energy performance while wearing her game face, capturing her vicious and determined demeanor. She and her teammates won the competition after flawlessly executing a series of coordinated backflips, jumps, and stunts.

A few days later, the video of their performance was made public, and a Twitter user with the handle @SEtotheleft saw the characteristic look and used a tiny clip from the video to make a GIF graphic to send his message.
In a few days, the video had received over 40 million views, and people were sharing it with funny captions like “when my instructor asks me a question assuming I’m not paying attention, but I answer it properly.” The meme quickly became extremely popular, making her an overnight internet sensation.
Ryan Cummings told BuzzFeed that having her “face on so many social media platforms” originally worried her but that she subsequently recognized “it’s ridiculous and sort of bizarre and entertaining.” “I want my squad to kill it,” she stated she was thinking at the moment she crafted the outfit.
Nonetheless, the small video of her emotion made her a global celebrity and made her a name in her community. Her friends were among the numerous people who shared her meme, and even her professors were aware of her spectacular rise to fame. Her mother, who saw the video soon after, found it humorous.
