Jen Selter said, “I’m recognized wherever I am. I don’t really go to public gyms anymore just because it is a whole big scene when I’m there. I don’t like being watched.” She said she posts for the inspiration and her rear end is just a means to that end. She admitted, “I don’t really post a lot of face pictures…they don’t want to see my face.”
As a teen, Jen Selter never considered herself the model type, and no one ever commented on her butt. She was a self-proclaimed computer nerd who found college “to be a waste of time unless you know what you want to do” (elle.com).
She lives with her mother on the Upper West Side. After she graduated high school, she took cosmetology classes while working at a plastic surgeon’s office. She also began working out and noticed the transformation.

Jen Selter joined Instagram in March 2012 and began her posting journey. “It’s so crazy. I never expected [my following] to get as high as it did…I’ve always been a social media freak." She is now a spokeswoman for a nutrition supplement company Game Plan Nutrition. She hopes to launch her own line of workout gear.
Jen Selter said, “I’m mysterious. Nobody knows my personality. It’s interesting to me how I build a following…when they don’t really know me…I’m one of the friendliest, nicest people out there. I think I would gain another million followers if people really knew who I was.”
She has fans, “and they’re so sweet. Then you have the creepy guys. But then you have a ton of haters who say the nastiest things.” She added, “People think I have sugar daddies and whatnot. No. I’m just like everyone else.”
Jen Selter said while she’s proud of her body, that if she can do it, so can anyone else. She admitted to getting a nose job while a teenager, as she was bullied. She wouldn’t leave the house without applying bronzer to make her nose narrower.
Other than working out, her hobbies are shopping and hanging out with friends. Jen Selter is single and resides in New York City.
