Lindsay Pelas remains the most popular LLOD of all time. She gets more traffic and more reader requests than anyone else. Being a professional journalist, I reached out to Lindsay for a quick Q&A. I also suggest checking out the photos.
Where did you grow up? What were you like in high school?
I grew up in a small town in Louisiana called Loranger. It was a rural dairy farm town about as country and southern as it gets. In high school I was really active and friends with everyone. I was class treasurer, president of the Spanish Club, voted Most Ambitious, etc.. I was always a go-getter, but there was a hint of class clown about me. People from my class are not surprised at all about me now. I’m still friends with them which is the best part! But they’ve always kind of believed in me and my dreamer ways and fully expected me to do something like this.
Are you surprised at how famous you’ve gotten?
Famous is such a flattering word but I don’t think I’m famous. I probably never will. I am surprised at how visible to the world I’ve become if anything. It’s such a trip to travel, especially internationally, and be recognized! It’s insane.
Are you flattered so many guys hit on you through social media or does it get annoying?
It is always flattering to get hit on! Always! I am so appreciative of compliments and that men are interested in me, it’s really nice. The only way it would get annoying is if someone is rude or demeaning when they ‘hit on’ me. I absolutely hate negging, too. So hitting on me with a neg is a sure-fire way I’ll dislike you.
You don’t need to name names, but are athletes and celebs sliding into your DMs? Is that weird?
They are! It’s more cool than weird! It’s funny, though, because most of the time it goes nowhere. We’ll exchange numbers and a few texts but I find most celebs and athletes are looking for something shallow. I’m still really traditional and maybe a little bit southern with dating. I like dinner dates and relationships before intimacy, so most of these DMs are a waste. I guess that can be LA in general though… ha ha.
Lastly, you are the most successful LLOD in Hot Clicks history (this is true. You get more traffic than anyone else). Any message to your Hot Clicks fans?
That’s so sick!!! I guess my message would be “Hey and thank you so much for the love and the likes. I’m beyond flattered and I wish I could meet every one of you. Also… this is just the beginning!”
