An Instagram bikini model has made headlines this week after she claimed on a TV morning talk show that she is “too good looking” to find love. After her stint on television, people online clapped-back at her narcissistic commentary.
Jenna Thompson revealed on the U.K. morning talk show The Morning that she “intimidates nice guys” because of her looks, and is afraid, “I’m too good looking to find love.”
She told the co-hosts of the TV show:
“I seem to attract guys that are only after one thing or people that think they’ll just havea go or have a shot and they seem to just want hook-ups.”
Thompson also said that she’s tried online dating, but it’s a “minefield,” calling back to a time she was seeing a guy who ended up being married IRL.
After appearing on the morning show, Thompson had a lot of backlash from people saying she was conceited and narcissistic.
“I’m too good looking to find love”. No wonder she’s not got far with such a narcissistic attitude. 🤷🏻♂️

@thismorning "I'm too good looking to find love" what is she on about! Do anything to get on the telly. Love your clearly too picky and want the 'perfect man' Its's got nothing to do with your looks!

@thismorning #thismorning this morning itv So Miss Fake thinks she is too good looking to find a date does she? Sounds like someone has a very over inflated ego to me. 🙄

But, after seeing all of the backlashes she received on social media from her interview, Thompson told Daily Mail she does have a lot of people who are supporting her. She also said she’s not going to let anyone change her or spoil her day.
It’s nothing that’s going to spoil my day. I’m going to speak my mind. I’m not going to introvert myself just because people don’t like the way I talk about stuff.
She said that while some say she’s too picky, she happens to be picky for a very specific reason.
People say am I being too picky? Yes I am being picky because I’ve got children. It’s not just my life – so that’s why I’m quite adamant in what I say.
She also said she knew that the commentary would cause some uproar, but she’s okay with it.
I knew it would be controversial. I was mentally prepared there was always going to be backlash, but I don’t read everything or get upset by anything.
I’ve got quite thick skin and have a dark sense of humour. I’m not that easily offended. I don’t know these people personally so I don’t take it personally
Some people were supportive of Thompson’s message.
I wanted to hate the woman who thought she was too good looking to find love but I actually quite warmed to her as she came across really well #thismorning

Loving this woman on #ThisMorning Don’t change yourself for anyone. Don’t shrink to fit inside someone else’s box. I’m sure she’ll get a tearing down from other women but this is the attitude we need to encourage. 💪

When addressing the haters online or people who think she’s “too cocky,” she simply said:
Maybe I come across overly confident, especially for single mums, as you’re in quite a vulnerable position. If people take offence to the fact I don’t feel like that – that’s their problem, not mine.
