Angus bumps Redfoo to reveal his top ten Tinder tips

Redfoo has had some coverage lately about being on Tinder, so The Today Network’s Bump Show quizzed him about it.

The newly single X Factor judge and rapper revealed he was using the smartphone Tinder app earlier this month and it seems he’s already a pro – providing an indepth critique of host Angus O’Loughlin’s Tinder profile.
Redfoo admitted he mostly used the app for fun and said he was yet to have a Tinder hook up.  The self-professed ‘Tinder Master’ ended up revealing to O’Loughlin his Top Ten Tips for Tinder success.

The interview will be heard on Thursday night’s Bump Show, but radioinfo readers get a sneak preview of his tips here:
1. Your photo should just be of you – unless you’re not the best looking guy/girl.

Redfoo criticises Angus’s choice of first photo – one of him and a male friend.
“First you got a picture with you and a dude, now, I don’t really like that.  When I first see the first picture of a girl with a friend…I really don’t know who that is. But it might be cool, because if you’re really not the better looking dude then you might need some other help.”

2. There’s a fine line between funny and weird.

Redfoo isn’t a fan of Angus’s bio where he described himself as type of dinosaur – and recommends explaining why he thought that in brackets.
“You might want to (explain that more)” he says. “Because none of the girls will know what you mean and they will just think you are weird.”

 3. Sell yourself.

Redfoo encouraged Angus to say he was a radio personality in his bio.
“That should be the first thing,” he says. “Girls wanna party man…you gotta give them the goods.”

4. But you can’t look like you’re trying too hard.

“Mine just says “DJ” cause my Facebook says DJ Redfoo, so it just says DJ. I took out Redfoo by accident and I got a bunch of matches because it made me look like I’m not even trying.”


5. Choose a first pic that will grab attention.

“You need an attention-getter” he says, suggesting Angus use a selfie with Redfoo himself as his first pic.  “If it’s not going to be you, you know, with an ice bucket and a ripped shirt…. That’s how my friends are doing it. They put me in the first pic and then…you know.”

6. Let it “marinate”.

Tinder addicts – put down your phone! If you leave the app for a while, Redfoo says there’s more of a chance you’ll have matches waiting when you pick it up.
“Well you know all the ones… if you’ve been letting it marinate. All the new ones are usually matches.”


7. Your first message must be interesting and unique.

Redfoo messaged a match from Angus’s phone, it read:
Yeah baby! Funny enough, I’m interviewing Redfoo on the radio. He says Hello
“It just shows that we’re linked together – it gives you a little bit of status,” he explained


8. Dress to impress.

Redfoo admitted his signature style – including his own label, LA freak was his chosen date attire. He even revealed he planned to wear animal print at his wedding!


9.  Keep your matches close.
“I like to limit my radius – I just keep it to one to two miles or kilometres.”

10. Have fun.

“I use Tinder for fun. I’ve never done a Tinder hook up. I just like the app.”
