Haley and Hanna Cavinder were amazingly talented collegiate athletes, but they are 100% aware that winning the genetic lottery (twice in one hit) has helped skyrocket their online brand, making them not only rich from NIL deals and their new contract with the WWE, but essentially opening themselves up to literally whatever future business dealings they want to venture into. “Hot girl privilege” is real, and they’re all in.

Recently, GQ Sports published a profile on the twins, and let’s just thank GQ writer Emma Carmichael for asking one of the most blatantly direct questions in the history of sports journalism.

In a portion of the article discussing a recent WWE photoshoot the twins did which they later deemed sexist, Carmichael took things a step further and asked the following:

“When I ask how they might respond to the criticism that they’ve unfairly benefited from both their looks and their whiteness, they are straightforward about it.”

“I think that…that’s true,” Haley replied when asked. “We were put in a position to capitalize off of [opportunities], and that’s what we’re doing.”

“I’m never gonna sit here and not understand other people’s side,” sister Hanna added. “I know that Haley and I have worked really, really hard. And I don’t wanna ever judge someone based on what they can’t control.”

Wow, who on earth is surprised that being a hot, athletic woman on the internet can get you things?

“I see it, though,” Haley continued. “I see why people will be like, well, they’re two white girls, they show their bodies, whatever. I’m not gonna deny that fact. But at the end of the day, what would you do? I wanna make this amount of money. I wanna be successful just as much as anyone else. But I also am not gonna deny that fact, and not sympathize and figure out like, Okay, how can we help? How can we use our platform?

I don’t get why Carmichael had to bring “whiteness” into the story other than the fact that reporters always want to bring race into everything they do, but I do get Haley’s point, because if I had a square jaw, six-pack, and Hollywood looks I’d probably be doing something other than writing for you right now (No offense).

What can I say? Game respects game.

Still though, why bring their “whiteness” into it? It’s not like there aren’t other attractive female athletes from different ethnicities also securing the bag. Swimmer and bikini model Andreea Dragoi comes to mind, and so does LSU basketball star Angel Reese who has done work with Sports Illustrated.

Would Carmichael have asked Reese if her “blackness” and hotness benefited her? Maybe its worth asking.
