As guys, we have no idea how easy we have it these days when it comes to looking at photos of hot women, thanks to the power of Instagram.
We no longer have to sneak into our dad's bedroom, and try and steal the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue from wherever he hides it. We no longer have to run to the newsstand to buy the overpriced magazine that has pictures of the steamy photoshoot of our favorite celebrity or actress. And we definitely don't have to worry about our girlfriends finding any of those magazines laying around our house somewhere.
But what we DO have to worry about is when our girlfriend happens to sneak a peak of our Instagram feed. Sure, Instagram has made it ridiculously easy to follow the most beautiful women on the planet, and enjoy the photos they post of themselves. But they've also made it pretty easy for your girlfriend to see which of those women – and how many of them – you're following, too.
Now, am I suggesting that you NOT follow any women that strike your fancy on Instagram? Absolutely not. If these women are willing to share some of their best photos, who are we to ignore them? Of course, your girlfriend will very much disagree with that logic. And that's okay, because you can always agree to disagree. In fact, to that end, we've compiled this list of the 15 women on Instagram that your girlfriend will not be happy to see you following.
15 Syd Wilder
Syd Wilder might describe herself as an "actress" who loves "writing, acting, and producing SNL-style sketches," but let's be real. If you're a guy, you're following her on Instagram because of the photos she posts of herself, showing off her amazing figure. Oh, and there's also the videos she posts of herself dancing, moving her body in very, very suggestive ways. You might try and justify being one of her 653k-plus followers on Instagram by saying you enjoy the daily inspirational and motivational quotes and messages she posts as captions for her photos, but your girlfriend is well aware that, most of the time, you probably don't even realize there's a message underneath that sexy photo of herself that she posted.
Your girlfriend knows her as the multi-platinum singer and songwriter who's only one of the biggest musical icons of this era, but also one of the best-selling musical artists of all time. You're probably just as familiar with her music as well, but that's not the reason you follow her on Instagram. No, you follow Rihanna because, just as she does in her music, she is more than happy to flaunt her body in her Instagram pics; after all, her Instagram handle is "@badgirlriri." In between the other photos she posts of makeup, fashion items, red carpet appearances, there are plenty of smoking hot photos of herself wearing anything from low-cut dresses to tiny bathing suits. In other words: there are photos to entertain every one of her 56.8 million followers, no matter what their interest in her may be.
13 Arianny Celeste
Arianny Celeste parlayed her work as a UFC Ring Girl into a very lucrative modelling career and huge social media following. She started working for the UFC in 2006, and between 2008 and 2014, she was named "Ring Girl of the Year" five out of those seven years. Maxim magazine named Celeste "The Hottest UFC Octagon Girl" in 2010, and featured her on their Hot 100 list every year between 2010 and 2014. She's also posed in the usual circuit of men's magazines, including FHM, Sports Illustrated, and of course, Playboy. So, there's little surprise that she's managed to accumulate three million followers on Instagram, where she often posts photos of herself not wearing a whole lot, and showing off her ridiculously toned body. On her personal website, she says health and fitness have always been a passion of hers. But, of course, those aren't anywhere on the list of reasons you're following her on Instagram.
12 Candice Swanepoel
Candice Swanepoel is basically the prototypical model you think of when you picture a runway or a Victoria's Secret model pops in your head: tall, blond, angelic face, and a flawless body. So, it shouldn't be any surprise that Swanepoel, a very successful Victoria's Secret model, was among the top 10 on Forbes' magazine's top-earning models list. The South African-born Swanepoel has modelled for over 20 different high-end fashion designers, and wore the famous "Royal Fantasy Bra" at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, worth $10 million. She's followed by over 11 million people on Instagram, where she posts plenty of fashion-inspired photos of herself. In other words: she's hot enough to follow, even without her posting a ton of photos of her in skimpy clothes; but don't worry, there are a good handful of those as well. And yes, your girlfriend does know that she's a model for a lingerie company.
11 Emily Sears
The Australian Emily Sears describes herself as a model and social media influencer, using both platforms to promote body positive messages for her female followers. And her male followers? Well, they can enjoy the fact that Sears helps promote those body-positive messages by showing off her ample and perfectly-placed curves. In fact, she actively thumbs her nose at the modelling industry, who usually demand the "size zero" girls, by showing off her fantastic body in anything from day-to-day clothing, fitness wear, and of course, sexy lingerie. But a warning to guys: don't get "too forward" with her. In January of 2016, she posted numerous screenshots of guys sending her inappropriate messages and pictures of themselves.
10 Demi Rose Mawby
If you live in the United States but still follow Demi Rose Mawby, then congratulations on your worldly knowledge of which hot models to follow on Instagram. The busty 22-year-old Brit burst onto the social media scene a few years ago when she posted a few risqué selfies. From there, an internet star was born. In fact, some British tabloids now refer to Mawby as "The UK’s Queen of Instagram." She also found her name in the tabloids – both in Britain, and in North America – in 2016, when we found out that she was dating rapper Tyga. The lingerie model now has her sights set on making herself a fixture in the club circuit, with aspirations of becoming a DJ. But, calling her the "female Tiesto" probably won't be enough to convince your girlfriend to let you keep following her on the 'gram.
9 Abigail Ratchford
Abigail Ratchford has become something of the modern day "pin up girl" for college-aged guys all over the country, and she's well aware of that. The curvy 25-year-old bombshell posts a steady stream of photos of herself wearing bikinis, lingerie, and sporting apparel – all of which she fills out very, very well. A few years ago, before she became an Instagram sensation, she posted a video of herself wearing lingerie and bouncing around. When TMZ and a few men's publications helped the video go viral, her Instagram following skyrocketed to over a million in just one week. Today, she has over eight million followers, which allows her to charge upwards of $6,000 per post when she's promoting various products. But, of course, the products she's promoting are the last thing guys are focused on when they're checking out her photos.
8 Ana Cheri
Ana Cheri is a full-time fitness model, who's not afraid of flaunting her very-well-defined figure to her 10.6 million followers on Instagram. Like many models, she got her start by posing for Playboy magazine, and was also featured as a Maxim Instagram Girl. She used that fame – and her dedication in the gym – to strike deals with various health and fitness companies, including Monster Energy, Shredz, and 1st Phorm. She's also the CEO of her own fitness apparel company called Be More Athletics. Even though she's over 30 years old, she still has a body that women 10 years younger would absolutely kill for... which is why it's no surprise that you'll find plenty of internet threads of guys swapping photos of her like baseball cards.
7 Mia Khalifa
You don't have to admit if you've seen one of her risqué videos before. We're not here to rat you out to your girlfriend. In fact, you can probably tell your girlfriend that you're one of Mia Khalifa's 2.8 million followers on Instagram because you love the fact that she's a huge sports fan (especially when it comes to Florida State University football or any of the professional sports teams from her native Washington), an avid gamer, and aspiring internet chef who posts live streams of all three on Twitch.TV. But everyone knows that Khalifa has made an entire career out of her surgically enhanced assets, and became an internet sensation when religious zealots in Lebanon (where her family originates from) made threats against her because of her scandalous work.
6 Jen Selter
Jen Selter has to be the godmother of the term "belfie" – a selfie of your behind. Despite standing about 5'6 and weighing less than 120 pounds, fitness model Jen Selter's incredibly toned bottom sticks out in a way that would make Sir Mix-a-Lot want to create a sequel of his most famous hit. She's basically the Kim Kardashian of the fitness world. Naturally, Selter is very quick to flaunt her "money maker" – both figuratively and literally speaking – with tons of photos of herself working out. She's been featured in nearly every men's magazine and fitness magazine you can think of. The focus of all those articles should be pretty obvious. So while you could tell your girlfriend you're following her for the lower body fitness tips, she knows you're just there to enjoy the view.
5 Lindsey Pelas
If your girlfriend sees any of Lindsey Pelas' pictures pop up in your Instagram feed, you're going to have some serious explaining to do. Honestly, the best way to describe Pelas is "homewrecker hot." Her professional credo has been to ensure that every photo she posts of herself on her social media accounts has to be "fire," and with some of the photos she does post, she could burn down multiple forests. She has a fantastic body that she takes great care of. So, once again, good luck trying to come up with an excuse for being one of her 6.9 million followers on Instagram, because your girlfriend will give you two BIG reasons why she doesn't believe you.
4 Sara Jean Underwood
Deep down, every guy wants a girl who's hot enough to make all his guy friends jealous, and sweet enough to bring home to mom. That's why so many guys fall in love with "the girl next door." And that's exactly what makes Sara Jean Underwood so damn attractive. The fact that she's incredibly good looking goes without saying; after all, there's a reason she was Playboy's Playmate of the Year in 2007. But she's the type of girl whom you can go and eat pizza and drink beer with, and then look forward to taking home. She loves traveling to exotic and remote places. The fact that she seems like a "real," attainable girl is what attracts so many of her 8.4 million followers on Instagram.
3 Emily Ratajkowski
For those who have seen the Entourage movie: remember when the clueless son of the movie producer was creepily and hopelessly following around Emily Ratajkowski's character (she's portraying herself) for most of the film? The reason why that subplot worked was because she's stunning enough to have that type of effect on men. Aside from her role in said movie, most people know her either as the girl from the music video of "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke, or the mistress of Ben Affleck's character in the 2014 film Gone Girl. After that, Sports Illustrated magazine named Ratajkowski as one of twelve 50th anniversary swimsuit issue rookies, and FHM magazine ranked her the fourth sexiest woman in the world. With over 15 million followers on Instagram, Ratajkowski is one of the most followed women in the world on the social media platform.
2 Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid has literally been a model since she was two years old; clearly, some people just have that look. At seven years old, she was modelling for Guess, and for Tom Ford at nine years old. Fast forward to today, and at 22 years old, she's appeared in basically every single fashion magazine that exists, and posed for nearly every high-end fashion designer you can think of. She has an otherworldly beauty; there's no other way to put it. She's the type of girl that every successful guy wants to have as their arm candy. With over 35 million followers on Instagram, she's one of the most followed models in the world. The fact that she's good friends with Kendall Jenner of the Kardashian clan is also good for her popularity.
1 Nicki Minaj
Nobody is going to think twice if you say you love Nicki Minaj's music. In a very competitive and perhaps chauvinistic industry, she's become one of the most successful female hip hop artists of this era, if not of all time. But let's be honest: Instagram isn't about the music, per se. If you're a guy following Nicki Minaj on Instagram, you're probably just as big a fan of the incredibly sexy photos of herself that she posts, as much as you are of her music. She's not afraid to bare almost all her physical assets on Instagram. Between that and her music, it's no wonder she has over 83 million followers, making her one of the most popular people on Instagram.
