Jen Selter is going from your computer screen to your living room.

The Instagram star, who has amassed over two million followers across that social network, just signed a lucrative sports management contract with The Legacy Agency, a company that represents such athletes as Carl Crawford and Reggie Bush.

“We believe she can be the next Jillian Michaels,” said TLA agent Andrew Witlieb of the 20-year old, who has no formal fitness training of any kind.

But she does have a rear end off which one can bound quarters.

"Jillian didn’t get to where she is until her mid-30s," added Witlieb. "Jen’s going to grow as a person, as a fitness expert, in these next years. She’s here for the long term." 

Selter hails from Long Island and started taking selfish of herself in the gym about two years ago.

Since then, she has built a mini Internet army that includes had a million Facebook fans and 200,000 Twitter followers; among them are Johnny Manziel, Amar’e Stoudemire and Shaquille O’Neal.

“She was someone I never heard of that had 1.3 million Instagram followers, now 2 million, since [a profile in The New York Post],” Witlieb told Fox News. “This was a combo of health, wellness and fitness meets social media. This girl’s really onto something.”

The challenge is on, Jillian. Can you do this?!?

That's a pretty big butte to be famous like Jillian Michaels. Actually Jillian isn't really that famous, she has never been in a movie. She's just kinda famous.
