Trisha Paytas considers herself ‘a mix between Woody Allen and your local hooker’. It’s quite an outrageous combination, one has to admit. But does she really live up to this bit of self-evaluation? More or less, for she is a strangely interesting bundle of contradictions. On one hand, you have the outrageously witty, bawdy, positive, charming version of her that made her a popular V-logger. On the other, there is this insecure, outspoken, paranoid side of hers that has earned her quite a lot of detractors. Love her or hate her, but you can’t just ignore Trisha Paytas. And that itself is her USP. She can surprise you with her quick-witted quips; make cringe-worthy, controversial remarks that will make her seem like the proverbial blonde; and redeem herself later on.
It’s this odd combination of contrasting characteristics that made Trisha Paytas a YouTube celebrity – a status that she has leveraged well, to a make a name for herself in the entertainment industry.
