Who is Behati Prinsloo? The Internet's hottest search topic

Victoria's Secret model is hot topic after wedding

Just who is Behati Prinsloo? That’s what Internet users have been asking for the past year and according to search engine statistics, it’s still a hot topic today.

After tying the knot Saturday with People magazine’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive,” Adam Levine, Prinsloo’s name has been blowing up the web. According to Alexa, an Amazon.com subsidiary that measures the Internet’s hot topics in real-time, Prinsloo was the web’s third-most active topic Monday morning.

Prinsloo wasn’t the only celebrity that piqued Internet interest over the weekend, but she may have been the only living one to do so. The deaths of Oscar-nominated actor James Garner and 21-year-old actress Skye McCole Bartusiak launched their names onto the list’s top five as well.

Born and raised in Africa, the 25-year-old Prinsloo has been working as a Victoria’s Secret model since 2009. According to People, she has also represented Marc Jacobs, Prada and Narcisco Rodriguez on the catwalk.

Search engine traffic for Prinsloo’s name crested in July 2013, when it was announced that she and Levine had become engaged. Google Trends show she was again a hot topic last December, as the couple spent their first Christmas together — which Prinsloo shared photos of on her Instagram account, which currently has nearly 800,000 followers.

Like her new husband, Prinsloo has done some acting as well. She has appeared in music videos as well as the CBS series “Hawaii Five-O,” according to People.

The couple were wed at a ceremony in front of about 100 guests on Saturday in Mexico, according to MTV.
