The native New Englander turned New York City resident always knew she had quite a head on her shoulders.
School was an absolute breeze for her when she was a kid.
She was such a brainiac that she memorized the periodic table of elements when she was just eight years old — “for fun.”
However, being unusually intelligent while also working as a model can be a challenge.
Candice Kloss, who now works as an OnlyFans model, joined the high-IQ club Mensa when she was just 17.
This is a fact that men tend to struggle with, she reports.
With an IQ of 138, she’s just flirting with genius status. But flirtatious men find that threatening.
The Mirror reports that Kloss tends to keep her intellect hidden from her admirers.
“I don’t really tell people,” she said.
“Some of my close friends know, but since we’re so close I don’t think it changes their opinion of me,” OnlyFans model Candice said of her Mensa membership.
“I think that men are definitely surprised when they find out. Some find it sexy but others find it intimidating for some reason.”
As for her childhood, Kloss said, “Growing up, I knew that I could learn things fairly quickly. But I was also very shy and awkward-looking, so I didn’t call much attention to myself in class.”
Thanks to models like Kloss showing the less intellectual side of themselves, OnlyFans now has a valuation of more than $1 billion, Bloomberg reports.
OnlyFans, a site where celebrities and adult-film stars charge admirers for access to videos and photos, is in talks to raise new funding at a company valuation of more than $1 billion, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The OnlyFans model said that before she joined Mensa as a teen, she already had a group of similarly intellectual friends.
“I had a group of fairly nerdy friends and was also a tomboy so I got made fun of for being different,” Candice said.
“Now I have gained confidence but can still be shy, so the concept of men finding me sexy is surprising.”
After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, Kloss went into real estate. More recently, she’s taken to posing on OnlyFans for cash and is raking in about $21,000 per month.
