Alexis Ren is another one of these influencers who happened to be in the right place at the right time, and thus became a figurehead or an icon or leader in that place.
In her case, it was this aspirational romantic travel video content that her boyfriend at the time was producing. It was before her breast augmentation surgery, so she looked more young, fit and wholesome when she was doing her bikini clad adventures.
Men loved what she was producing because she was young and hot in her bikini, while women loved what she was doing because it was living out their dream. When you work in an office, or when you used to work in an office before the world shut down, you'd look at these images as hope! Maybe one day I can go to those places, wouldn't that be nice.
For whatever reason, the media loved this girl, and their videos went viral, and then the mainstream followed their story. A bunch of copycats popped up doing the same tropical vacation content while Ren went on to be the eye candy on Dancing with the Stars because I guess she was enough of a social media star to use to bring in younger eyeballs.
So now that she can't travel and is in quarantine, these influencers must be going nuts, bikini pics against a wall, JUST to have a taste of bikini for the fans who are there for the bikinis, even if bikini pics against a wall make no sense and are strictly for the bikini in the pics.
