Cause you're not fit.
And perhaps more importantly because you don't have a film maker following you around with (what looks to me like) a high budget and high-flying (for climbing) film set up.
hang on a second, does the video series not state it is about a normal climber doing what we all do and struggling to reach 7b?
Unlikely if she is sponsored by Rab!!
Sponsorship has a lot less to do with extreme high performance than you might think. A lot of people will watch these videos and thus the Rab brand will be well advertised. It'll be good business for the company.
"Sponsored by Rab" probably just means they've given her one or two Rab jackets to wear in videos, not that she's going to be able to ditch her job and get private jets around the world to climb whatever she fancies.
