Jen Selter is among the legions of Instagram stars who are famous not for their talent, but for their physical attributes and entrepreneurial drive.
Selter is famous for her natural and perfectly proportioned derriere. The fitness instructor's 3 million-plus Instagram followers include Rihanna and past and present NBA stars Shaquille O'Neal and Amar’e Stoudemire. All she has to do to grow her follow count is update her account with new photos. Any angle will do as long as her butt is prominently displayed.
Selter spoke with In Touch magazine about all the attention her butt has garnered online. And while she's appreciative of the many lucrative opportunities her butt has brought her, she manages to stay humble.
“If anything,” says the 20-year-old New York native, “I’d like to make mine a little bigger.”
That’s right — for Jen, a big butt means big bucks. The fitness junkie has become an Internet phenomenon, turning her hobby of sharing selfies of her perky posterior into a lucrative career.
“I was putting up photos of myself at the gym and started getting a lot of likes,” says Jen, who now has nearly 3 million followers — including Rihanna and basketball players Amar’e Stoudemire and Shaquille O’Neal — on her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages and can earn $60,000 just for posting product endorsements. “I just went viral.” Source
Before she was a social-media darling, Jen was just a girl from Long Island with an ordinary behind.
“I didn’t get attention for my body,” says the 5-foot-6 brunette, who worked at a local gym after graduating high school. “I never had a great butt or one that stood out.”
That all changed three years ago, when she started a rigorous diet and fitness routine that focused on her glutes.
The obsessive discipline paid off, and inspired Jen — who lives with her mom in Manhattan — to develop a line of upcoming fitness DVDs. Source
She’s even in the process of getting her most valuable asset insured.
“We’re figuring it out,” says Jen, who says she has “no idea” of the dollar amount yet.
But don’t expect to see Jen, who is single, baring all anytime soon.
“Never,” says Jen, who sticks to yoga pants, leggings and the occasional thong or bikini. “I like to keep my photos classy.” Source
