There's a Secret Tinder for Models and Rich People
The dating app is reportedly catering to the rich and famous with a new, members-only version of the service dubbed Select.
Happen to be rich, famous or really good looking and can't seem to find anyone on your level to date? Tinder might be able to help you out.
The dating app is reportedly catering to the rich and famous with a new version of the service dubbed Select. According to TechCrunch, the members-only version is meant for "elite users" such as CEOs, models, celebrities and other "hyper-attractive/upwardly affluent types."
An anonymous source told the news outlet it's basically "for celebrities and people who do really well on Tinder." Tinder invites people to Select, and gives some members the ability to "nominate" others. Tinder may be nominating people based on their "Elo score," an algorithm-based rating system the company uses internally to determine how desirable a person is.
Tinder Select users have a navy blue "S" at the top of their app instead of a flame, and can toggle between the regular Tinder and Select. TechCrunch says Select has a "way better" design than the regular Tinder.
Posts on Reddit indicate that Tinder Select has been around for months.
Tinder did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the feature.
Meanwhile, Tinder offers a couple of other paid options to help you find love if you're striking out. That includes Plus, a premium tier with a few perks you won't find in the free version -- including the ability to scope out prospective hotties in a different city, undo your last swipe if you messed up and like an unlimited amount of people. Tinder also last year launched a feature called Boost, which lets you pay to "be one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes." That could net you 10-times more profile views, increasing your chances for a match.
