The Olivia Dunne hype train is going as strong as ever. The LSU gymnast and social media star is growing her fame and reach into mainstream American culture every day.
It wasn’t that long ago that she was a niche social media star whose fame was mostly contained to Gen Z’s on TikTok. But, the last two years have been huge for Olivia Dunne after the Supreme Court legalized NCAA athletes making money on their Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) in the Summer of 2021. In plain language, college athletes can accept endorsements, and make money off of being a college athlete, besides being paid directly by the universities themselves.
And, Olivia Dunne has made a killing off of NIL. With over 7 million followers on TikTok and 4 million followers on Instagram, it’s not hard to see how NIL could be great for someone like Olivia Dunne. Check this out.
