AI-Generated Model Captures the Social Media Spotlight

Emily Pellegrini, an AI-generated Instagram model, has surprisingly amassed a following of 123,000 within a span of four months. She is the brainchild of Chat GPT, created based on the 'average man's dream girl' description, and while she may appear eerily realistic, she is entirely the product of artificial intelligence.

AI Influence: From Non-existence to Stardom

Emily Pellegrini, despite her non-existence in the physical world, has managed to capture the attention of high-profile individuals, including footballers, MMA fighters, and billionaires. Such individuals, oblivious to her AI nature, have approached her through Instagram direct message. The content creation platform, Fanvue, has been the medium through which Emily's anonymous creator has earned nearly $10,000 in a mere six weeks. The AI model's allure doesn't stop with Emily - her 'blonde sister,' Fiona Pellegrini, has quickly gained traction on Instagram as well, accumulating 30,000 followers.

Surge in AI Generators

The rise of AI generators is a trend that is hard to overlook. Platforms like Unstable Diffusion are producing over 500,000 images on a daily basis. The CEO of Fanvue, Will Monange, foresees a future where AI-generated adult stars could pose a significant challenge to their real-life influencer counterparts. This would allow content creators the freedom to explore their creativity without the need to be the public face of their work.

The Double Life of an AI Creator

Behind the success of these virtual models, the creator's life is anything but carefree. Managing these accounts can feel like leading a double life, with the creator preferring privacy over the public exposure that accompanies an influencer lifestyle. Despite the taxing work, the creator intends to expand their AI 'family' with more virtual models, anticipating a future where AI influencers could potentially dominate social media platforms.
