Jen Wilke is a ‘model’ who appeared in Playboy several years ago, and therefore shall hereto be referred to as a ‘Playboy model’ although that implies some kind of important and/or ongoing relationship with Playboy. Nah.
Actually, the 32-year-old from Texas is hoping the generosity of her basement-dwelling, Waifu-loving fans will keep her going as she explores new opportunities. Because at 32, we all know a mediocre model has a world of opportunities ahead of her!
Let’s dig into her lovely GoFundMe campaign, shall we?
As a model, much of my life revolves around work. I am always conscious of my diet, and I spend long hours in the gym, as well as keep up with my online social media presence. Those, however, are just the basics on top of my regular day job. There is much, much more that goes into building a successful modeling career, just as there is much, much more that goes into building any successful brand. That is what I am really doing: I am building a brand.
Bruh, you’re 32. If you haven’t figured out how to tweet and work out at the same time, no amount of money will help you.
I am getting all of the right kind of attention, and I have grown my fan base to encompass more than 2 million users on Facebook alone. The offers that I am getting for photo-shoots, castings, and key social events are what I have always dreamed of, and I am still worrying about covering basic expenses like clothing, travel, and lodging. It would mean the world to me to be able to focus on my modeling career exclusively. I know that I am almost at a point where I could support myself and once I am there, I intend on using my profile and my position for the good of society. I just need to get there first.
What the hell kind of shady, broke ass people are you ‘modeling’ for that don’t even pay travel? And let’s audit that 2 million users on Facebook claim right quick.
Um, 31,952 < 2,000,000 but I digress, back to the GoFundMe campaign.
That’s where you come in, GoFundMe. I am turning to you for help raising $(amount) to give me a boost into the future enabling me to say “yes” to many opportunities about which I have thus far been ambivalent. The money that you contribute will set me on a pathway to a brighter future, and for that I will be forever grateful. I thank you for your time.
$(amount)? LOL. She forgot to plug in the $10,000 she’s asking for, of which she’s raised a little over $1200.
In exchange for your generous donation, you can receive one of the following.
As it so happens, this isn’t Jen’s first time turning to GoFundMe to GoFundAllherbullshit. Exhibit A:
Sadly, that GoFundMe campaign has since been removed.
So, you’re telling us that in four years, this ‘model’ hasn’t been able to get her career rolling enough to pay for her own trips?
According to her website, Jen “attributes all of her success to her hard work.” Mhmm.
