Jen Selter’s Butt Turns Her Into Instagram Star
Does Jen Selter have the best butt on Instagram? If the amount of followers she's racked up since joining in any indication, then definitely yes.
The 20-year-old Instagram star has garnered a huge Internet following, all credited to her round booty, which she shows off regularly on the service in skin-tight yoga pants. She's so popular, even celebrities follow and admire -- including Rihanna, New York Knicks big man Amar'e Stoudemire, and former NFL star Terrell Owens.
In a piece for the New York Post, Selter explained that she joined Instagram in March 2012. At the time, she was attending cosmetology school, and working at a gym and a plastic surgeon's office. But soon, thousands of followers came and then hundreds of thousands. She's since racked up nearly 1.7 million followers, resulting in endorsement deals... and even her own line of products.
Each photo she shares easily records more than 70,000 likes. How? Why?
Sure, there's plenty of girls who show of their bodies on Instagram. Jen, however, looks at it as though she's doing a service for others, providing motivation to get in shape. "I'll never post a raunchy pic. There's a difference between a porn-site picture and gym wear or bikini wear," she tells the paper. "Everything's usually yoga pants. Yes, it can be showy, but I've seen a lot worse. And if it motivates people to get their butts up and go to the gym, why not?"
Selter decided to skip college for Internet fame. She wouldn't tell the Post how much she makes, but so far, has landed deals with NYC water company NY20 and nutrition supplement company Game Plan Nutrition, as a spokeswoman. And, says her butt has helped her rake in "a lot more money than a graduate would be making."
What's next? She says her own line of workout wear.
"Everyone always wants to know what leggings I'm wearing. So why not make my own?" Selter asks. Or, maybe a chain of "like cool gyms, like with some glowing stuff."
