12 Videos That Prove Gabi Butler Earned Her Status as Cheerleading Royalty

From the moment the docuseries Cheer landed on Netflix, the internet has been losing its collective mind over Gabi Butler. Though the series follows the entire Navarro College squad — led by formidable coach Monica Aldama — Gabi quickly emerged as a star, and it isn't difficult to see why. This isn't Gabi's first time in the spotlight: she became a bit of a celebrity in the cheerleading world at a fairly young age, when she first began posting videos to YouTube (where she has now amassed more than 70,000 subscribers) and appeared in the web series Cheerleaders, which followed Gabi and an all-star squad from California on the road to a second World Championship. Oh, and did we mention she has more than 900,000 followers on Instagram? Casual.
