5 MN Celebrities Who Will Do Personalized Cameos For You
With Valentine's Day on the way, give your significant other the gift of a personalized message from a famous Minnesotan!
Over the past couple years, I've been hearing quite a bit about the personalized video website Cameo. Touted as "Personalized videos feat. your favorite stars," the website is chock-full of famous actors, athletes, musicians, comedians, social media stars, reality TV stars, political commentators and even animals that you can hire out to create personalized video messages (how animals create personalized messages I'm not sure). From birthday shout outs to work parties, the celebrities on Cameo can be hired out for just about any occasion. Both of my sisters work for major corporations that have utilized Cameo. My youngest sister Annabeth told me they once got a hilarious video from rapper Flavor Flav; they also tried to get television sportscaster Erin Andrews to create a message, but apparently she didn't do corporate videos. Prices for personalized messages from celebrities range from $10 and less to (Santa and other small-timers) to $1,000 and higher (Floyd Mayweather, Sean Payton, Randy Quaid, Caitlyn Jenner).
With Valentine's Day on the way, consider surprising your significant other (or, heck, yourself!) with a personalized message from a famous Minnesotan! Here are some we found listed as available:
Get your next personalized message from 2019 Miss Minnesota Kathryn Kueppers. According to her Miss American bio, Kueppers attended school at Minnesota State University - Mankato and got her degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. A jazz lover, she performs in a group called Ella's Cats. She also presents a kids cooking segment on Children's Hospital Star Studio called "Snack Attack with Kathryn." In June 2019, she won the title of Miss Minnesota 2019 and was a double preliminary winner of both the talent award and the evening wear/social impact statement award. With an overall 5.0 star rating on Cameo, Miss Minnesota Kathryn Kueppers is available to hire for just $20.
Got a big sports fan in your life? Gift him or her a personalized Cameo vid from former Vikings player Jared Allen. Here's a recent review left by one happy fan: "Awesome!! My husband loved his shout out from Jared. This was the perfect Christmas gift. Thank you for making his holiday, Jared!" Jared will do videos for anniversaries, holidays, as a gift and even as a roast! He costs $269 per video.
Surprise the bada** woman in your life with a personalized message from another bada** woman! Temi Fagbenle is a Minnesota Lynx player, British Basketball Olympian, WNBA Champion and Model. A former Harvard and USC athlete, she's currently playing in Venice, Italy! A personalized Cameo from Temi runs just $50.
With a five-star rating and 63 reviews under his belt, former Twins outfielder Torii Hunter is one of the most sought-after Minnesotans on Cameo! The former professional baseball player is now "serving the fruits of my labor!" according to his Cameo bio. "Best gift my son ever received," raves one review. "You are and will always be the best man on the field!! You knocked it out of the park . . . Again!!!!" Torii's charging just $150 for a personalized message!
A Cameo search of "Minnesota" results almost entirely in Minnesota athletes, so finding any other Minnesota celebrities takes a bit more work. After running through a number of other names like Chris Pratt and Winona Ryder (neither of whom seem to be on Cameo), we struck gold with a positive search result for -- Sisqo! The "Thong Song" singer now resides in Maple Grove and will do a personalized message for just $100...though just don't ask him to sing, cause he won't.
A few other Minnesota celebrities you'll find on Cameo include Fox Sports North commentator Dave Benz, Minnesota Vikings announcer Paul Allen, NFL Pro Bowler CJ Ham, Vikings QB Kirk Cousins, and even Minnesota Wild mascot Nordy, though they're all currently listed as unavailable for cameos.
