After an eventful year, Olivia Dunne is enjoying the summer.
Dunne, who has 4.1 million followers on Instagram and 7.4 million on TikTok, became one of the highest-paid college athletes this year, earning nearly $3.4 million a year in NIL deals according to ON3’s NIL valuation.
Dunne has only seen her reach grow since the inception of NIL. Working closely with WME, she has signed deals with EA Sports, Body Armor and Forever 21. She partnered with the artificial intelligence company Caktus AI at the end of February, which drew a response from LSU. With more than 11.3 million social media followers, she can guarantee brands will get unprecedented exposure to their products. Dunne will be in this year’s edition of SI Swimsuit along with Reese, marking the first two college athletes to ever appear in the magazine.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Dunne revealed that her most viral TikTok videos are the ones in which she does gymnastics.
“My most viral TikTok got 35.7 million views, which is crazy. I can’t even wrap my head around, but I’m just showing off my gymnastics skills,” said Dunne.
On Friday night, Dunne went viral again by showing off her gymnastics skills by doing a backflip on the beach in her bathing suit.
“some beach-nastics to start the summer off right:)” she captioned the video.

Dunne’s latest beach backflip is much better than the one she tried to do last year, in which she landed on her face.
