Bizaardvark Plot: What is it about?
‘Bizaardvark’ follows two friends, Frankie and Paige, who write songs and make videos for their online channel, “Bizaardvark”. When they eventually manage to get 10,000 subscribers, they are invited to the prestigious Vuuugle Studios to produce videos for them. With their fellow stars Dirk, from ‘Dare Me Bro’, where he takes on dares, and Amelia, from the show ‘Perfect Perfection With Amelia’, the two friends strive to become video blogging stars as they have their comedic adventures. Frankie sings and can play the guitar. Although she’s generally witty, she can get very silly at times. Paige, however, is more levelheaded.
Both of them went to school in Hollander Prep, where they felt weird and started creating music as a means of overcoming their awkwardness. The name Bizaardvark struck them while flipping through the pages of a dictionary. Despite an initial eyebrow-raising by their fellow classmates, Bizaardvark garnered a strong fanbase. They are followed by their long-time friend Bernie, who doesn’t have artistic talent but acts as a good agent.
