Epic Games are expanding their Fortnite ICON Series with another big name in the world of TikTok by introducing a new emote for Bella Poarch.
With over 66 million followers on TikTok, Poarch is one of the biggest influencers around. Just recently, she released her new hit single ‘Build a B*tch’, which has since reached spot 58 in the Billboard Hot 100 – quite the achievement for somebody just stepping into the music business.
Of course, she’s not the only one to make the transition from TikTok influencer to singer, as the likes of Addison Rae, Chase Hudson, and others have also given it a go.
And, there’s also a big crossover in gaming too, and the three worlds now collide with Bella getting her own emote in Fortnite.

How to get Bella Poarch’s Build Up Fortnite Emote
Bella Poarch’s exclusive Build Up emote was released on June 4. Here’s what you need to do to get your hands on the new emote:
- Launch Fortnite on your PC, console, or mobile device
- Head to the Item Shop
- Check out the Featured section at the top of the shop
- Select the Build Up emote and check out (the emote does cost 500 V-Bucks, so make sure you have enough to cover it)
Once you’ve done all that, you should see the typical ‘Item Acquired’ message pop up, along with a preview of your brand-new emote. Make sure to equip so it’s available the next time you jump into the battle royale.
Is Bella Poarch getting a Fortnite skin?
There has been no word on whether or not Bella Poarch will get a Fortnite skin for this ICON Series crossover. However, based on the strings found following Fortnite’s v15.60 update, it does look like the release will be heavily based on her new single ‘Build a B*tch.’
Other creators have got their very own skin, but the preview for the emote is another character, so at least at this stage, it doesn’t look like there will be a skin for Bella too.
