Olivia Jade Giannulli's loss is Ava Phillippe's gain! The recent college bribery scandal that implicated actress Lori Loughlin and designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, alleging they paid $500,000 in bribes to USC to secure admission for their daughters Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade has affected the entire family. Budding entrepreneur and YouTube personality Olivia Jade found herself losing many of her lucrative sponsorship and endorsement deals as a result of the scandal. One of those deals was with Amazon Home who seems to have found a new college-age child-of-a-celebrity to act as their new spokesperson. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe's daughter Ava Phillippe has replaced Olivia Jade and is now showing off her new Amazon decorated dorm room on social media.
The 19-year-old is going into her sophomore year at UC Berkeley and has signed what seems to be her first major sponsorship deal with Amazon. Phillippe posted a picture of herself in her new dorm room on Instagram writing, "Getting excited for Fall semester at school with my new decor from @amazon! It was so fun getting to decorate my own space with all these college essentials! @amazonhome #ad #allonamazon#amazonhome."
In a statement, the college student lauded the online retailer for being a one-stop shop for all her dorm room needs. "Because the moving process at my university happens so quickly, I only had a few days to get moved in and settled," Phillippe said. "I was able to purchase all of my dorm and school essentials from Amazon’s Off to College storefront and get my items delivered fast with my Prime Student membership. Prime Student also includes exclusive deals for students and entertainment with Prime Video."
She also managed to promote other Amazon products while discussing her busy college schedule. “One of my favorite aspects of college is the freedom to create your own class schedule. While it’s exciting that every weekday is different, it sometimes makes it challenging to keep track of my schedule," she said. "I've been using my Amazon Echo to set reminders I need for class, set alarms, and keep me organized."
Amazon had previously partnered with Olivia Jade, who also shared a shot of her dorm room to promote the Amazon prime student program. After the allegations surfaced against Olivia Jade's parents, Amazon, as well as a number of other brands, parted ways with the beauty vlogger and young businesswoman.
We already know one person who is a big fan of the retail giant's partnership with Phillippe, and that's mom Reese Witherspoon. The proud mama couldn't wait to comment on her daughter's Amazon-decorated room writing, "Love your style!"
