Who is Bri Teresi?
Bri is a social media influencer and model, known for her significant presence on platforms such as Instagram. She gained popularity through her lifestyle and golf-related content, appealing to a broad audience. Bri is also noted for her collaborations with various brands, and her involvement in promotional campaigns.
Early Life and Education
Bri was born on 8 October 1994, in Auburn, California USA, where she also grew up. She has a close relationship with her family, especially her younger sister Katie, who is also a model. For her education, Bri attended St. Francis Catholic High School in Sacramento, California, matriculating in 2013, and then pursued higher education at San Jose State University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Government in 2018.
Bri’s modeling career took off after she was discovered on Instagram by a photographer. This initial recognition on social media led to her working with numerous big brands, and being featured in various magazines.
Despite only starting her modeling career in 2018, Bri has made significant strides, working with notable brands such as KO Watches, Rockstar Energy Drink, FHM, and posing for “Maxim” magazine.
One of the highlights of her modeling career has been her collaboration with the fashion brand Guess. Bri has spoken about her experience working with the brand for three years, and becoming a part of the #GUESSFamily, which is a significant achievement in the modeling industry.
Additionally, she’s managed to leverage her interests in golf into her modeling career. A video of her playing golf in minimal attire went viral, further boosting her fame and social media following. Since the initial video became a hit, she has successfully incorporated golfing into her personal brand, which makes her stand out among other models and influencers.
Another unique part of Bri’s branding is her love of nature and the outdoors. Instead of taking usual travel photos, Bri often uploads pictures from the countryside, even among farm animals.
Bri has been involved in a notable controversy surrounding her stance on certain brands’ advertising choices. The controversy centered on her protest against what she perceived as ‘woke’ branding by certain companies, expressing her frustration in a video in which she is seen shooting at products from these companies. She criticized Bud Light for their partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, and Tampax for advertising tampons to trans women.
Bri also severed ties with the lingerie brand Honey Birdette, for which she previously modeled, after they featured trans model Jake Dupree in an advertisement. She accused Honey Birdette of ‘pure misogyny’, arguing that by using a trans model, the company deprived a biological woman of a modeling opportunity. The lingerie brand later claimed that they’ve never worked with her.
Bri is a vocal adversary of gun control and frequently posts videos from the shooting range. In March 2023, she uploaded a video about Donald Trump on her Instagram page, voicing her support for the former US President, which caused her to lose a section of her following.
All of this has led to her facing ostracization from Hollywood, but Bri remains unfazed, stating that she has social media and now lives in Florida, indicating her independence from the Hollywood scene. She takes pride in being an ‘independent thinker’, and has a loyal fanbase of people who share her beliefs.
Presence on Social Media
Bri has established a significant presence on various social media platforms, leveraging her modeling career and personal interests to engage a wide audience.
She is particularly well-known on Instagram, on which she’s amassed over 1.5 million followers, and which features a mix of modeling shots, lifestyle content, and fitness-related articles.

In addition to Instagram, she has also gained popularity on TikTok, with her account, ‘@briBri0’ numbering more than 300,000 followers, while her videos have amassed close to 2.5 million likes. Bri is mostly known for uploading videos from the golf course, showcasing one of her biggest passions. As a social media creator and avid golfer, Bri is one of the main faces of the new social media network aimed at connecting golfers, called GolfLync.
Bri is also very popular on X (formerly Twitter), on which she’s gained a following of more than one million people.
She’s also active on the subscription platform OnlyFans, which gives her fans a chance to chat with her and view her more explicit content.
Love Life and Relationships
Bri has been linked with several individuals – she’s reportedly been associated with National Football League (NFL) quarterback Johnny Manziel, although this was never confirmed, and they never publicly acknowledged a relationship. Furthermore, she’s been connected with YouTuber Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, but again, neither has confirmed or denied the rumors.
As of 2023, Bri appears to be single, although it’s possible that she’s simply choosing not to disclose her relationship status to the public.
Hobbies and Interesting Facts
Beyond modeling, Bri is an entrepreneur with her swimwear line, which was launched in 2017. She is also involved in blogging and managing an online store, reflecting her diverse professional pursuits.
Bri once shared an embarrassing experience where she fell from the stairs of a jet while filming, due to wearing very high heels. Despite the incident, she was able to laugh it off, although it was filmed by the crew.
Although golfing’s now an integral part of her brand, Bri only picked up the sport relatively recently. In her interview with the “New York Post”, she revealed that she played for the first time in 2020, after her friend suggested that she should try taking photos at a nearby course.
As of December 2023, Bri’s net worth has been estimated at more than $1 million. This figure comes from her modeling work, as well as sponsored social media cost; it’s speculated that Bri’s earning up to $45,000 for a single sponsored post.
