- Instagram fitness model Michelle Lewin, who has 13.4 million followers, had a recent photo session on Big Major Cay island in Exuma, the Bahamas.
- The area is famous for its wild pigs, which swim in the water.
- Lewin’s photoshoot didn’t go to plan, as she posted a video showing her being bitten by one of the pigs.
One of the biggest fitness stars in the world had quite a shock when she was bitten by a pig while trying to take pictures with them in the Bahamas.
Venezuela-born Michelle Lewin, a bodybuilder and fitness instructor who has 13.4 million Instagram followers, is known for her own range of fitness products and calendars, as well as fitness plans and apps.
The 32-year-old was ranked the third highest-paid fitness Instagram star in the world in 2017, earning £3.5 million ($4.5 million) a year.
That same year, she was also named one of Forbes’ most influential fitness stars, with the site reporting that she earns more than $10,000 per Instagram post.
It’s easy to see why it’s important for Lewin to share only the best photos with her followers, and on a recent trip to Big Major Cay island in Exuma, the Bahamas, she did just that.
Wearing a bikini, Lewin had a photo session in an area known for its wild pigs, which swim around the island – made popular by models like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid in the infamous promo for the failed Fyre Festival.
While Lewin managed to share some footage of herself swimming and lounging in the sand with the pigs on her Instagram stories, the whole shoot didn’t go to plan.
The model shared a video on her Instagram account showing her being attacked and bitten by one of the wild pigs.
The video then zooms in on her behind, where red bite marks are visible.
You can watch the video below.
Luckily, she seemed to laugh it off.
The video comes after a 19-year-old model was bitten by a shark while taking photos on vacation in the Bahamas last year, and is further proof that sometimes getting the shot from the ‘Gram just isn’t worth it.
