Secret Life of a Mermaid is a mermaid show posted on the channel teenie989. It has over 90,000 subscribers, making it the most popular mermaid show on YouTube, and the inspiration for countless others.


A girl named Amy is swimming in the ocean when a storm comes out of nowhere. She then sees a cave and wonders if she could take shelter there. Then a waterfall splashes on Amy. The next day, Amy spills water on herself and sees she has become a mermaid. She is followed by Brenna, then Kelsey, and the trio struggle with their powers, their new vulnerability to water, and their rocky friendship. In Season 4, Amy's older sister Tess becomes determined to expose the mermaid trio, so they must do their best to avoid any contact with water.

The tails were homemade by Tess's actress, Bridget. On July 28, 2010, the "movie" Germany Journey was released on the creators' channel, though the second part was temporarily blocked due to copyright claims from EMI Music. On a news release in early 2010, Christine announced that the show would have 8 seasons, though Bridget will be going off to college in 2014, making this less certain.

The show gained its own Cafe Press shop, and from October 4 to November 2, 2012, the creators hosted a T-shirt design contest to celebrate 20,000 subscribers. The channel was hacked in February of 2013, and the creators locked out of their account, but they regained control in early April, and the series continued. It soon reached 50,000 subscribers, which the creators celebrated with a theme song contest. Christine, Amy`s actress, announced that she was moving to Atlanta in the sixth episode of season five, then the show ended in the next episode.
