Regardless of how old you are — or how well you know YouTubers — you're most likely somewhat familiar with the viral phenomenon that is JoJo Siwa.
The 17-year-old ponytail-wearing, fast-talking, glitter enthusiast has made quite a name for herself in the realm of internet culture, and whether you love her or you absolutely cannot stand her videos, you'll be shocked to hear the pre-teen might currently be dating somebody.
Twitter is completely shook that JoJo Siwa is dating someone — here's what we know.
JoJo was rumored to be dating Elliot Brown.
In March 2020, many of JoJo's followers assumed she was dating high school football player, Elliot Brown. Nothing was confirmed, but the two had posted a number of photos and videos together.
Elliot played football at his Omaha, Nebraska high school, Elkhorn South High School, and he's committed to playing football at University of Nebraska, according to Omaha News. Although JoJo is homeschooled, they must have somehow met in the city of Omaha, which is where she's originally from. Take a look at the photos JoJo and Elliot have posted together, below, and try telling me they aren't totally "in luv."
However, JoJo Siwa revealed she's actually dating Mark Bontempo.
"Meet Mark:)" JoJo captioned a video of herself and the young man dancing while dressed in the other's clothing. Check out how adorable they are together.
JoJo made it a point to tag her not-so-secret boyfriend, who also confirmed they were dating on his own TikTok video. In a "duet" with @createchaosgossip, Mark listens to commentary about a "fingers down" TikTok that JoJo recently had posted.
When it says, "Put a finger down if you are currently single," JoJo keeps all of her remaining fingers up — indicating she is dating someone. Mark captioned it with, "@itsjojosiwa if it's not me you have some explaining to do," alongside the hashtag #nationalgirlfriendday.
Mark's only other TikTok video at the time featured a dance with his twin nieces, Taytum and Oakley, and his brother-in-law, Kyler Fisher. (So he's a fun uncle, too.)
JoJo's boyfriend, Mark Bontempo, is a singer.
Not only is Mark a singer, but he plays guitar and piano, too — as evident by his personal Instagram and his music Instagram accounts. It looks like Mark and his brother, Mason, mostly perform covers.
Twitter can't believe JoJo has a boyfriend.
While much of Twitter is still single (to their dismay), they're shocked and hurt that JoJo was (maybe) able to lock down a BF. Check out what they had to say about it below.

Unfortunately, I will be unavailable today as I found out Jojo Siwa has a boyfriend and I’m 22, single, and wondering what lean cuisine I’m going to make for dinner tonight— ashley nicole (@AshleyNicole_9) August 2, 2020
Daily reminder that Jojo Siwa has a boyfriend and you don’t ✨✨✨— ‘-42- (@marwasarax) August 2, 2020
so jojo siwa has a boyfriend and i don’t, what am i doing wrong?— nurella🧞♂️ (@nurellacook) August 2, 2020
Yes, it's kind of mind-blowing that JoJo is dating someone, but that's only because it's easy to forget that underneath all the glitter, scrunchies, and sequins, the singer and dancer is — in fact — a hormonal teenager. We're happy for JoJo and hopefully things work out between her and and Mark.
