If you're on Facebook you might have already seen Betty the White's Tree Frog from Florida pop up on your newsfeed. She's been going viral on several social media platforms since becoming a finalist in the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts competition.
Betty's mom, Kaitlyn Vidal, 21, of Orlando, decided to enter the beloved amphibian into the chocolate brand's annual competition for a chance to win $5,000.
"My mom actually told me about the Cadbury contest and wanted me to enter. I decided to enter all of our frogs for a chance to win," Vidal stated in an exclusive interview with The Sunburnt Blogger. "Some of the frogs were harder to pose than others. Betty was a trooper though and gave me lots of great content for the video I made for the semi-finalist round."
And she wasn't kidding. The video and photos are absolutely precious.
Donning a homemade 3D-printed top hat with felt ears attached, it's unsurprising that the internet has fallen in love with this darling little green lady; as clearly evidenced by her spot as a top-10 finalist.
And while she's doing just fine on her own, Betty was shared in the Facebook group "Frogspotting" last night, generating over 5k reactions and over 700 shares in less than 24 hours.
"I am blown away by everyone's reactions on social media," Vidal says. "I am not a part of Frogspotting but I had a few Instagram followers message me about how well that post is doing and it makes me so happy."
So what will Vidal and Betty do with all that money if they win?
"If we win, all the money will be going to my graduate education. I was recently accepted to UCF's Speech-Language Pathology Graduate program and will be starting a few weeks after graduation in May. I could use all the help I can get because student debt is no joke."
As if we didn't already have enough good reasons to vote for this duo.
But what does the star of the show have to say for herself? "[Betty] just wants to remind everyone to vote and share the video in hopes to bring some joy to someone's day!"
Anything for you, Betty!
