Lindsey Pelas has been taking the world of Instagram by storm with a fan base of over 3 million followers. She can also currently be seen on the current season of MTV’s Wild N’ Out. We recently got a chance to chat with Lindsey about modeling, life in LA, and what is next.
The Ruston, Louisiana native was voted Most Ambitious in high school. She was awarded a college scholarship and attended LSU, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in History. While in college, she started bartending. Lindsey told us her favorite drink to make was called, Liquid Marijuana. She had fun selling the drink knowing it had a catchy name and was something people would never forget. While meeting many people through bartending, she had fun connecting with customers and making them drinks “I would cater to what people’s personalities are.”
While living in Louisiana, she had the chance to model for Playboy. She began using Instagram, posting pictures, and building followers. Even though Lindsey has many fans, we asked her if she has gotten any negative comments or criticism. She had important advice, “If words don’t destroy you, it’s going to empower you.”
After graduation, she knew she wanted something different and moved to LA. “It is where I have always wanted to be. I’ve wanted to be around creative people.” On her first night out in her new home, she got to live one of her dreams, attending a party at the Playboy Mansion. “It was something I‘ve seen on TV for years. It was the most amazing party.” Lindsey has been enjoying her new home and wants to explore more of the beautiful state “I want to enjoy the parts of California that I haven’t seen.”
Lindsey is currently very busy. Aside from modeling, she has been seen in Bruce Willis’ EXTRACTION, pursuing hosting, taking acting classes, and working on a collection of short stories about her transition to Hollywood. When asked what would be her ideal hosting position, “I really enjoy competitive shows where contestants are competing for something.” She would also love the opportunity to work on a show about travel. “I want to see everything, I want to go party and meet people and eat food.”
On what she wants others to know:
“Keep watching and I am going to make sure I don’t disappoint.”
