A 6-foot-2 woman revealed how she went from being bullied for her height to making $100,000 a month on OnlyFans.
Marie Temara, 27, is taller than the average female, admitting in the past she was embarrassed about her height and wished she was shorter.
After losing her job as an accountant in 2020 and dealing with a breakup in 2021, the Florida resident started a TikTok account about her stature, amassing millions of views on her videos.
After gaining over 390,000 followers on the app, she turned to OnlyFans with videos of her showing her height by standing near or kicking over everyday objects.
Now, Temara said she makes “what [she] used to make in a year in a month.”
“I was so shocked — I thought, ‘Wow, people actually like this,’” she told PA Real Life.
It wasn’t always positive, though.
“I was always a head taller than everyone else,” she said. “I used to get bullied for being so tall. People would call me a boy because I was taller than everyone else, which was really hard.”
Temara comes from a long line of tall genes, with her mom standing at 6-foot-5, and her dad at 6-foot-2.
While she admitted it took her a few years to embrace her height, posting videos about being tall has helped.
“So many people commented saying they thought I looked so good and thanked me for sharing, saying they finally have someone they can look up to,” she said.
Temara says she hopes people see her videos embracing her body and it helps them to gain some confidence — particularly younger girls.
“I want people to know that it is okay to be different,” she said.
