Do You Want To Be The New Face (And Torso) Of Grindr?


Brush off your best “Blue Steel” because Grindr’s looking for a new model to serve as the face and bawdy of the popular hookup app. Models-to-be can submit their entries either via Facebook or simply Instagram a photo of themselves, using the hashtag #grindrmodel. Voting begins September 23 at midnight. 10 finalists will be voted on by the public with the grand prize winner being flown out to LA for a three night stay, a day of beauty, a new wardrobe and a professional photoshoot. The nine runners-up will receive a free year of Grindr Xtra among other prizes. For rules, more info about entering the contest and to see your potential competition click here.

    Gregory or Mikey or both together doing nasty things.

  • yaoming

    Do they want to model for GRINDR or the local gym?

  • Faggot

    @yaoming: Is there a difference?

    Grindr: A site created in honor of Robespierre.

  • Teleny

    Go Gabrielle!!!

    Greg from Houston: WOW!

  • LadyL

    Greg is pretty but you can’t see much torso… but Mikey from Chicago–WOO HOO!!

  • Dixie Rect

    Due to Grindr’s puritan censoring of photographs, none of these would be considered. Most violate their rules. Grindr sucks!

  • viveutvivas

    @Dixie, you are correct.

    These pictures would almost all be c*nsored by Grindr if a user tried to submit them either because the pants are low enough to see the hips (which are bann*d), or because they show underw*ar (also bann*d).

    Rather use Scr*ff.

    And Queerty is no better, as you can see all my editing to try to avoid bann*d words.
