#5 on G4’s Hottest Women of the Web.

I’m pretty sure this is the proudest moment of my life, only second to tha bikini photo shoot I did on the muddy banks of a duck pond on a rainy day in mid-November, 2003.

Yes, it’s true. G4 has ranked me #5 in a list of the hottest women of the web (or on it, literally naked). I even beat Audrina Partridge from the Hills, and she’s rawkin’ all kinds of nekkid. Unfortunately, my viking hat picture was not sexy enough to beat Petra Nemcova (Yeah, seriously. They put me on a list with Petra Nemcova. I know I’m laughing sitting here in an old grey hoodie and dinosaur pajamas). Or lil chunky chips, Jennifer Ellision, or saucy Brazilian uber model Adrianna Lima.


Lisa Bettany #5 Hottest Women of the Web


Sorry to disappoint you with the lack of gratuitous butt and crotch shots, but that’s just not how I roll. I can, however, show you this interesting photo series I did on mid-18th Century Eastern European pigeon masks? Any takers? Nah. Didn’t think so. It didn’t get very good reviews at the 2nd Annual 18th Century Eastern European Pigeon Mask Conference so it’s probably for the best.

PS. I like that G4 didn’t ask permission for using my photos. Makes me feel like those internet copyright laws are really working.

PPS. The guy humping the table at the start? Yeah. Not so much.

PPPS. I’m only #7 on Wired Magazine’s 2007 Sexiest Geek. What gives Wired? And seriously how long is this contest gonna go on? Crown the wordy Russian lingerie model and be done with it.

    LOL. I actually like the guy, the only problem is … he’s humping a table… NOT sexy. Ryan Reynolds, on the other hand… *swoons*

    “Skip the gadget reviews and check her out in a bikini” Hey maybe you can beat out Adrianna Lima next week… step up the sexy and anything is possible.

    And I’m so glad you had no idea about this until I told you. Extra points for me +++

    Kevin humping tables…not so good. It makes me wonder if Olivia Munn yells at him during commercials since he pretty much does stuff like this all the time.

    If you’re license is open enough, technically they don’t have to ask you for photos they’ve used from Flickr. Check what your CC setting is there.

    But congrats!

    What a stupid video! Congrats on making it as high as you did. The show on the other hand was almost soft core porn in the images they shown of all of the other women. The fact that they used you pictures troubles me a little bit as i am not sure if Flickr is a good enough excuse to use your content. Just my 2ish cents.

    Four things I’m going to get off my chest
    No1: You maybe be no5 on the list but No1 on the women who actually has a personality list.
    No2: guy table humping thing – don’t thrust – you do circular motion unless filming porn.
    No3: sue them
    No4: You are cool, Beautiful, Interesting women and you don’t need anyone to tell you that.

    So subject closed.

    Off high-horse now. I’m off to dance lesson and will dedicate
    my first Saturday night routine to you. Now where’s my silver glittery shoes……

    @Pasquale — i’m actually quite messy.

    @jeff — hizzah. i’ll just go find the poster board tryptic of my pigeon masks. it should be easy to find as it is neon green. looking… looking… i’ll let you know when i find it…

    @Raul — agreed. Ryan Reynolds > G4 guy humping the table.

    @Nuno — thanks! still waiting for your gravatar to appear. any day now…

    @Nate — you were the first person to notify me of this honour. and on my facebook wall. super extra bonus points for you!!

    PS. don’t skip my gadget reviews. they’re awesome. like that one i did… uh… have i done gadget reviews? i thought i just made fun of stuff.

    @Big Mike — it did make me cry a small tear for Olivia. That can’t be fun to work with.

    @Duane — i had a copyright underneath the photo: © 2008 Redpilot Media and I had the flickr copyright set at Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs Creative Commons. I have since changed it to All Rights Reserved. They really shoulda asked me or at least notified me that they were gonna zoom up on my boobs. errrr.

    @Jer — not the highest level of content is it and it did make me turn a violent shade of red to watch it. all those girls were nekkidddd.

    @Michael — thanks for the dance routine. i bet it was super wikkid.i don’t think personality was on the table…

    @Lisa: I’m in *love* with Ryan Reynolds. Not sure if everyone shares my obsession. But your blog is very fun. I’m not a geek, unfortunately. But I hope to learn lots about how to become a geek :) Have a nice weekend!

    @Duane: Ouch that sucks. Do people still steal your stuff even with the Creative Commons and stuff? BTW I love your photography. But I think you already knew that.

    […] hard to believe, but I was basically rabbit kibble. Do rabbits eat kibble? Chomp? But then G4’s Attack of the Show ranked me as the 5th hottest woman of the web and my life when from bunny kibble to like, a really expensive cheese… that’s been aging […]

    Take advantage of it. Milk it till it’s dry. Free publicity is the best publicity.

    Hope you’re on all the list.
