Ah, Jen Selter. This is an exciting and inviting topic to dive into head first. How does someone who is just 23-years-old (currently) get so much attention so early on in life without appearing in any sort of television series as a child star? That's the million-dollar question that is Jen Selter. Selter is a New Yorker who stormed the Internet with her bodacious figure that has garnered her a ton of media and attention. It shouldn’t be a big surprise that an attractive woman is getting some online play. But it isn’t easy to build a strong following online unless you have something to build off of it. For instance, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape that helped propel her to fame. Others have dated celebrities that initially drew attention to them. But not young and beautiful Jen Selter. She didn’t have the Paris Hilton silver spoon to get things going. She became “online famous” for entirely different reasons altogether.
Some will say that Jen Selter is just popular because of her body and the fact that she's half-naked in a lot of her photos. Okay, that makes sense. But you don’t get millions of followers just because you're some party girl that shows off your boobs. Selter is a workout queen. She, at a very young age, has emerged as a very interesting online figure. She's been able to display her figure while doing it in such a way that it categorizes her as a “professional” and not as a desperate wannabe seeking attention. It certainly doesn’t mean that Jen Selter isn’t just an attention-seeker. What it means is that the perception of what she does is in line with solidifying a brand. She sells herself as a fitness guru while at the same time blowing up the Internet with each one of her amazing photos.
15 The Origin
Before we dive into Jen Selter’s amazing career as a fitness model/guru, let's take a look at her beginnings. She started out in New York, where she was raised by her mother on the Upper West Side. Like many other young teens, Selter wasn’t born with a p--n-star-like figure. She was an awkward nerdy girl who saw herself more in the vein of being a self-proclaimed computer nerd. Selter didn’t know what she wanted to do with her life and saw college as an unnecessary speed bump, something that was a waste of time. She was looking for a path in life and stumbled upon cosmetology school. She took the cosmetology classes while she worked at a plastic surgeon’s office. Cosmetology school generally boasts some of the most beautiful women around and you double-down with a plastic surgeon’s office. That was where Jen Selter got a message; she discovered her calling.
14 Jen Gets Noticed
Jen Selter was shocked and surprised. She had no idea what would happen when she jumped into Instagram. Of course, you hope people will care about your journey. You want them to give a crap about who you are and what you're about. But Selter was a nobody. She didn’t have a family name to lean on. She didn’t date a football or basketball stud. She wasn’t a sl--ty dancer in a hip hop video or a stripper. She wasn’t much of anything on the world’s radar. She was just a girl trying to get things going. She got red hot online, and reactions to her workouts and her showcasing of her body transformation were overwhelmingly positive. Selter described herself as a “social media freak.” Her ability to communicate and promote herself online has worked heavily in the favor of this former-nobody who has amassed quite the following.
13 The Body
Much of the attention Jen gets is about her body. She herself admits that if people paid more attention to her fun-loving and kind personality, she would garner a lot more attention. It's her physique that brings home the bacon for Selter. Now, her 32B chest is nothing to write home about. But with little fat on her body, one can understand why she has a sleek upper body. But breaking out her measurements, 32-23-36, you can immediately see the number that sticks out. That 36. Jen Selter has been a massive online sensation, in large part, because baby definitely got back. And this isn’t the kind of situation where she just has a big butt because she’s got flab back there. Selter’s rear end is as chiseled and cut as the rest of her body, which is why she's such a sensation. The physical definition of her body makes her curvaceous and sexy.
12 Hello, Instagram
Instagram is a big-time application, its value difficult to digest. Launched just 6+ years ago back in October of 2010, its advent has made photos the premium way to display daily events. Twitter limits people and what they can throw online. But Instagram wanted to open things up. The mobile photo-sharing application has since grown into an absolute monster in popularity. By December of 2016, the service had over 600 million users worldwide. And many women learned of Instagram’s value very quickly. Celebrities used it to keep their fans informed and engaged while also promoting themselves. It was clear that Instagram provided opportunities of sorts for those who wanted to use the application beyond simply sharing photos with their friends. Jen Selter saw value and jumped into Instagram in March of 2012, relatively early on in the application’s advent.
11 Home Gym
Jen Selter got so much attention for her workouts that she could barely go anywhere without getting noticed. She was truly emerging as an Internet celebrity. Her biggest audience happened to be men (shocking). Selter’s figure was a homerun with her male counterparts, and if she walked into a gym with her tight workout clothing on, people would stare. Men would leer at her as she worked out, and it started to get to be too much. Selter started to feel uncomfortable at the gym, so she had to make a big change to her workout regimen. She started to do her gym time at home. She has grown to be far more comfortable in the public eye beyond her Instagram posts these days. But showcasing your body online is very different from interacting with people in person. It’s a whole other ballgame.
10 The Workouts Begin
While working amongst beautiful women getting surgery to further enhance their beauty and seeing the long line of gorgeous queens hoping to make it in that line of business, Jen Selter saw a different view of herself. She didn’t want to be the computer nerd anymore and started to exercise. The more she exercised, the more she recognized positive changes with her figure. She was emerging as a different person than she previously saw herself as. Selter’s body thinned out, and she started to see curves in places she didn’t know she had. She started to eat right, and the changes became even more pronounced. Jen Selter, the future Internet workout queen, was beginning to shine through, overcoming her more conservative teen self.

The gist is that Jen Selter draws a massive crowd wherever she goes.
8 The Model

6 Jen Selter: The Butt Guru

When you look at Jen Selter, the definition she sports around her abdominal region, as well as nearly every part of her body, is quite impressive.

Her workout routines can be found online as well as by using an app Selter promotes. Selter promotes an impressive workout routine. Unlike a lot of other celebrity fitness folks, Selter posts her workout programs online for people to freely use. The programs are complete with abs, crunches, push-ups, planks, etc….

You can inspire other just as easily as me by working out hard.” This is her brilliance. She really has worked very hard to get where she is. Her fitness and her body and her career and brand, unlike many other Instagram wannabes who just want to look sexy and get attention but have been unable to maximize their financial potential and build a brand for themselves. Selter’s career will depend on her ability to continue to remain relevant and put forth workout, fitness, and diet plans.
