Social experiments are a popular sub-genre of videos often featured on YouTube. For example, does a nerd have a chance to score on a Tinder date? How are fat people treated by their dates?

In Alli Reed's case, men were willing to look past a scary stream of red flags — heavy drinking, drug use, lying about pregnancy — to say hello to a pretty face. So she created the worst persona she could think of, presenting herself as an insensitive, greedy year-old who parties too much, knocks cups out of homeless people's hands and tricks her parents into paying her bills. The social experiment was to see if men — Reed's OkCupid profile stated she was only interested in male relationships — would still bite.
