Markowitz told the Daily Dot, “They were all definitely partially based on experiences I’ve had, and my friends have had, and that my cowriter David Ross imagined happens to women on Tinder.”

But before you go throwing a benefit for her, she assured us it hasn’t been all whiskey snobs and foot fetishists. “I’ve also met really great, funny guys on Tinder, too, but those aren’t as fun to make videos about.”
