There's no question about it: Dancing with the Stars contestant and Australian television host Bindi Irwin is pretty much the coolest teenager on the planet. She and partner Derek Hough are killing it on the DWTS dance floor, and have so far earned Season 21's highest scores. Her sparkling personality and infectious energy have already made her a fan favorite, and a photo she posted on Sept. 26 of her snuggling with her boyfriend reminds us all that she's also a normal, happy teen who just happens to have an ultra-cool career. Seriously, this girl is living her best life.
The daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, Bindi has been appearing on television since she was two years old. Since then, Bindi Irwin has forged her own path as the host of several Australian game shows and documentary series. She is also the public face of the Irwin family's conservationist organization, The Wildlife Warriors. Most 17-year-olds are simply struggling to get to school on time — Bindi Irwin is already taking over the world.
In addition to her amazing charity work and numerous television appearances, the Australian teen also has A+ social media posts. Her life is a mix of glamorous photo shoots, cuddly animals, and rustic living on her family's farm. Here are 12 reasons Bindi Irwin is living the best kind of life, at least according to her social media:
