Olivia Dunne is one of, if not the most famous athlete in all of college sports.

Dunne is, to her credit, an outstanding gymnast for the LSU Tigers.

But her real fame comes down to her social media pages, where the blonde bombshell has built an absolutely enormous following.

Dunne has a whopping 7.4 million followers on her TikTok account and a further 4.1 million on her Instagram.

At just 20 years old, she’s quickly become adept at handling her immense fame,

“The biggest thing I’ve learned so far is that you need to make sure to keep certain parts of your life private,”Dunne recently told Sports Illustrated in an interview for their annual swimsuit edition. “Some things you don’t want the whole world knowing, so [you have to] keep certain parts of your life private.”

She credits fellow social media influencer and former college athlete Paige Spiranac with that tip.

“That’s something that [she] kind of helped me with … just keeping certain parts of your life private,” Dunne said of Spiranac. “Making sure not to post certain things that maybe you don’t want people’s feedback on.”

Spiranac leapt to the defense of Dunne last year after a New York Times article about Dunne using her sexuality to create a brand.

“I’m so sick of women belittling accomplishments of other women because it’s done differently than they would,” Spiranac wrote at the time. “@livvydunne is getting hate for making 2 million a year. She’s built a successful business (at 20) all while being a student-athlete. That’s badass.”

Since then, Dunne’s popularity has only grown. And it’s not hard to see why. Her photo shoot for the SI swimsuit edition was a massive hit.

She shared a jaw-dropping new photo from the shoot on Instagram on Wednesday and the post immediately blew up.

Within 24 hours it garnered nearly 500,000 likes and over 2,000 comments.

Dunne appears to be just scratching the surface of her fame. And there’s no telling where it could go from here,
