One of Hudgens’ most popular roles is undoubtedly Gabriella Montez from the High School Musical series. However, since her appearance there, she participated in a number of other motion pictures such as “Bad Boys for Life,” “Spring Breakers,” as well as “Tick, Tick… Boom!” Hudgens also starred in live productions including FOX’s “Grease: Live” and “Rent: Live,” as well as the Broadway musical “Gigi.” 

But besides being a famous actress, Hudgens is a growing entrepreneur. Together with Oliver Trevena, she co-founded Caliwater, a startup that crafts tasty wellness drinks from a super fruit called prickly pear. Hudgens is also a part of the beauty brand KNOW Beauty, as well as Thomas Ashbourne Craft Spirits, a famous cocktail brand.

The Company’s Portfolio of Ambassadors Continues to Grow

The recent deal with Hudgens further expands BetMGM’s partnerships with celebrities and famous athletes. Earlier this month, the company announced a collaboration with the famous actor Jerry Ferrara. As a result, the star of movies such as “Eagle Eye,” “Battleship” and “Lone Survivor” became a brand ambassador for BetMGM

Before that, in August, the company joined forces with Connor McDavid, the youngest team captain in NHL history. The collaboration saw McDavid join forces with BetMGM as a brand ambassador which made him the first active player a part of a major US professional league to team up with a North American sportsbook.
