Chasing Cameron is an American reality television series starring Vine star Cameron Dallas.[1] It premiered on Netflix on December 27, 2016.[2] The series centers around Cameron Dallas, a "social media influencer", who is best known for his prominence on the video app Vine. He is one of the main members of a group called Magcon (Meet and greet convention), which was short-lived in 2014,[3][4] but revived, partly with other people, in 2016. During 2016, Magcon went on a tour in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, with events consisting of a show and a meet and greet.

The half-hour episodes depict Cameron and other Magcon members' road to fame, and the price that comes with Internet stardom, including a physical altercation that occurred in a European club. The show's co-starring tour members include Aaron Carpenter and Taylor Caniff, as well as Dallas' immediate family members. The first season of the show consisted of ten episodes.

Production[edit]

The series was announced on June 22, 2016 via Variety.[5]

The show premiered on Netflix on December 27, 2016.[6]

On January 20, 2017, Dallas said in a red carpet interview at the People's Choice Awards: "For sure. 100% there will be a season 2. [...] I think it's gonna dive deeper more into my relationship between my mom and sister, and then kind of a more in-depth view on where we're going and what's continuing to go on, because we're only taking steps forward, so I feel like the more we go, the more interesting it gets". Dallas also stated that the second season would feature a different premise altogether.[7]

Reception[edit]

Since the release of Chasing Cameron the series has received generally negative reviews.[9] Common Sense Media's critical consensus reads, "Internet star's self-serving reality show has iffy messages", while giving the show a rating of 1/5.[10] Kevin O'Keeffe, writing for mic.com also criticized the show, stating "his hesitance to let go of control makes Chasing Cameron a far worse show than it could have been".[11] Michael Andor Brodeur, writing for The Boston Globe, was somewhat more receptive, writing "There’s something about the abundant emptiness of “Chasing Cameron” that, right now, feels like a necessary refuge [...] basking in its inconsequential glow."[12]
