As the holiday season draws near and the MLB off-season is in full swing, America's new sensational sports duo, Olivia Dunne and Paul Skenes, took to the skies for an unforgettable helicopter date night over the dazzling New York City skyline.
Paul Skenes, a rising baseball prodigy and the celebrated first overall pick in the 2023 MLB draft, has been making waves in the sports world. His partner, Olivia Dunne, is not just an acclaimed LSU gymnast; she's also a social media powerhouse, captivating millions with her online presence.
Rising Sports Powerhouse
The couple's relationship, confirmed in a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette interview, has quickly become the talk of the town, positioning them as one of the most influential power couples in the realm of sports.
Their every move garners widespread attention, with fans eagerly following their journey. Their latest escapade, a helicopter tour of the Big Apple, was shared on Dunne's Instagram, offering a glimpse into their glamorous life.
Despite the less-than-ideal weather, the couple's spirits were undeniably high, as evidenced by their radiant smiles in the photos. Olivia Dunne's impact extends far beyond gymnastics. With an impressive social media following, including 5 million on Instagram and 7.7 million on TikTok, Dunne has become a marketing juggernaut.
Her ability to influence and reach a massive audience has been lucratively recognized by major brands. According to reports, her earnings per sponsored TikTok video range from $4,400 to $7,400, while Instagram posts can fetch her between $31,900 and $43,200.
Forbes estimates Dunne's career earnings at $2.3 million, a figure echoed by other publications like Marca. However, her appearance on the "Full Send Podcast" revealed staggering earnings of up to $500,000 for a single social media post.
Despite her digital dominance, Dunne notably avoids YouTube, focusing her efforts on other platforms. Dunne's name, image, and likeness (NIL) valuation stands at an impressive $3.2 million, as per On3, making her the top-earning female collegiate athlete and third among all college athletes.
This ranking places her behind only Shadeur Sanders ($4 million) and Bronny James ($5.9 million). As 2024 approaches, it's clear that Dunne's financial trajectory is on an upward swing. With Skenes by her side, both thriving in their respective sports arenas, this power couple's future seems as limitless as the sky they soared over during their enchanting NYC date.
