When people aren’t taking pictures of their food on Instagram and putting absurd hashtags on them, they’re probably looking at pictures of Jen Selter’s butt. Apparently some important people have been browsing her account and believe she could be the next big thing. Via Page Six:
“We believe she can be the next Jillian Michaels,” said TLA agent Andrew Witlieb, even though Selter, 20, has no formal fitness training, compared to experienced trainer Michaels, 39, who’s a judge on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” “Jillian didn’t get to where she is until her mid-30s. Jen’s going to grow as a person, as a fitness expert, in these next years. She’s here for the long term,” Witlieb added.
Having no formal training doesn’t mean that she can’t teach us things about fitness, or posting pictures of our butts. There are personal trainers at my gym who are certified that look like they’ve never been to a gym, nor heard of one. The sky is the limit for Selter to bank on her new found fame.
“She was someone I never heard of that had 1.3 million Instagram followers, now 2 million, since the Post story,” Witlieb told us. “This was a combo of health, wellness and fitness meets social media. This girl’s really onto something.”
What we can take from this is that the keys to success are having a nice butt and 2 million followers on Instagram. To think, I wasted all that money on college when I should have been hanging out at the gym taking selfies. Knowing how famous Selter is already for merely taking pictures of herself doing fitness related activities, I’m pretty sure she’ll be able to turn herself into a lucrative brand. I mean, some people have done less and became world famous celebrities.
