You’re probably aware that people have been having a lot of fun with Snapchat’s new filters of late, which can make you look like a girl or a boy. But one guy has taken it to the next level by setting up a Tinder account for the female filter version of himself – and it turns out she’s very popular with the fellas.
Snapchat filters can provide hours of entertainment in addition to helping some of us look even better in our pictures. But it turns out that one guy in particular decided to turn things up a notch by setting up a Tinder account for the female filter version of himself. And as it turns out, his alter-ego proved to be quite popular.
Jake Askew is from Norwich, UK and decided to set up the account after he thought himself to look “unreal” with a filter on, and not long after many other guys agreed. His filter profile received more than 1,650 likes as well as somewhere between 300-400 matches.
“Jess” was actually Jake, who attends the University of Derby as a student, and Jake was the one to reveal that many guys got in touch with Jess in order to make some very indecent proposals.
The 20-year-old Jake said, “One chap asked ‘are you a piece of art because I want to nail you against the wall’. Another talked to me about his ‘pork sword’ and one bloke simple asked me to ‘sit on his face’. I didn’t let anyone know about it, I’ll keep ‘em guessing.”
Jake also said he never expected his profile would receive so much attention even if he did think that Jess looked great.
“To be fair I looked at myself with the Snapchat filter on and thought I looked unreal, showed my mate and we thought we’d make a Tinder just to see if I’d get any matches from it…Obviously didn’t expect to be liked by over 1600 thirsty lads,” he said.
Jake shared the results of his little experiment to Twitter – and the tweet has since been liked more than 6,300 times.
His tweet read, “So rather than going out, me and SJ decided to see how far Jess could go on Tinder…within an hour I was the most popular girl in Derby.”
Well played, Jake.
