Gao, who was only 19 when she won the competition held at a shopping mall in the capital of northeast China’s Liaoning province, Shenyang, is now a successful live stream host and fitness coach with over 2 million followers on social media, according to NetEase as translated by Shanghaiist.
Thanks to her success – and her “assets” – Gao was able to purchase the car of her dreams, her very own workout studio, and an apartment with a sea view.
Despite her rigorous daily routine, where she spends six hours a day in the gym working out to maintain her physique, Gao admitted that whenever she goes out, she wears baggy clothing to avoid unnecessary attention from the crowd – particularly those who stare too much at her backside.
The 5-foot-7-inch professional trainer once shared a rather uncomfortable experience where she witnessed a couple fight after the boyfriend was caught glancing her butt, making the girlfriend upset.
