the social media space, Paige Spiranac is a complex character to understand. While it is easy to judge her based on the controversies and online discussions about her, there is more to the golfer-turned-influencer. She has been vocal about her life too, regularly taking the time to share her narrative on the web.
Comparisons often occur between appearance and her rivals, who compete with her to emulate her success. One such comparison has recently risen on the horizon, with one of her younger social media ‘peers.’ There are definite similarities between the two, however, there are many differences too.
The new glam queen in sports-influencers-ville
Mikayla Demaiter is a popular social media star from an ice hockey background. She decided to pursue a social media life a few years back. While she is not exactly a golf influencer, she is competing in the female-sports-star-turned-influencer space.
The 23-year-old is bold enough to step outside certain boundaries that Paige Spiranac herself never crossed. Demaiter’s outfits often go beyond the accepted norms and are often categorized as revealing.
The Canadian star was playing in junior hockey until 2019 when she sustained a knee injury. Following the injury, she announced her retirement from the sport and pursued social media attention. Well, she got what she wanted. The star now has over 5 million followers across platforms. For those unfamiliar with the star, here is the most recent reel she shared on her Instagram profile.
While Paige Spiranac also became notorious for her bold clothing, the context is different. Her boldness was relatively less rebellious compared to Demaiter. And the drive behind her boldness did not stem from what would work in the digital space.
Spiranac has explained her history with fashion and it would probably help if we revisit her story a bit.
