Rumors have been floating around lately that former LSU star pitcher and No. 1 MLB Draft pick Paul Skenes is dating LSU star gymnast Olivia Dunne.

Skenes confirmed those rumors during a recent interview with Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
quote:

“It’s nice, for sure,” Skenes said. “It can be a pain in the butt sometimes, to be honest, in terms of actually going somewhere. If one of us went out in Baton Rouge [La.] by ourselves, there’s probably gonna be someone there asking for something — picture, autograph, whatever.

“It’s nice to be able to have that conversation. She does get it. I do wish she could come to a baseball game and just enjoy it. It does irk me. I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either. I’m sure it’ll get better as I go up levels, but that’s something I want for her.”
Skenes also talked about how the two met.
quote:

The two started dating, Skenes said, because his best friend at LSU was dating Dunne’s roommate and regular TikTok sidekick, Elena Marenas.

“Just a small-world type of thing,” Skenes said.

Qualifies as a subtle brag? I dunno. Has she come out yet? Not a good look, him copping first. She's going to ruin him in short order. Patooty fever is a helluva drug.

This feels like she is hooking up with him to help her social media following and maybe snag an NIL deal out of it.

She’s another dime a dozen selling her body. Because she can. It pays to sell yourself. Too many betas pay for it.

They are polar opposites as far as social media is concerned. At least neither has to worry about the other spending all of their money

She'll lose a lot of simp money over this. Never tell the simps that you're spoken for.

"I don’t have any control over it. She really doesn’t either."

A number 1 draft pick really does NOT have much control over the media frenzy. A college gymnast? She has 100% control. She CHOSE to be a social media "influencer" in addition to being an athlete.

You're confused. Her profession is a social media influencer.

Maybe. But she is the person who buys a house near the airport and then complains about the noise.
