Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke’s popularity is peaking at a weird time. A week or so ago, video of her pre-race dancing routine made the rounds online and turned her into an overnight Internet sensation. (Her ultra-hot physical appearance also helped.) Unfortunately for her, she won’t be able to maximize her sudden fame because she failed to qualify for the Summer Olympics, which get started today. Within days, we’ll all be talking about hurdlers who aren’t Michelle Jenneke and she’ll be sitting at home looking hot and (probably) dancing around in her undies.
Maybe Jenneke’s time in the spotlight doesn’t have to end so soon, however. The
good people at Sex.com have issued a public offer to her: pose nude on the site and they will make a “sizable donation” to the governing body of sports in Australia.
The whole thing is a publicity stunt, of course. Sex.com is pretty much just a crappy version of Facebook where people can post nude photos and videos of themselves. No one uses it. They want us to talk about them, and they have succeeded (you’ll note that I gave them no link, however).
Jenneke, of course, will turn the offer down. Even if she wanted to so it, the Australian Sports Commission would surely reject Sex.com’s money.
Maybe this will open up new opportunities for her, though. If enough people make it clear that they want to see her nude, maybe she’ll get an offer from a more reputable publisher–a Maxim magazine or something along those lines.
