That's Hot: Paris Hilton Joined The Bored Ape Yacht Club
Updated: Feb 8, 2022
Paris Hilton showed off her new bored ape on fellow Bored Ape Yacht Club member, Jimmy Fallon’s tv show last night.
Hilton was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday evening where the heiress discussed NFTs and her bored ape with BAYC member Jimmy Fallon.
During the segment, Fallon thanked Hilton for teaching him about NFTs and mentioned to her that he aped into the BAYC. Hilton responded that she also recently aped and joined the club!
“I got an ape too,” Hilton said. “I saw you on the show with Beeple and you said you got it on Moonpay. So I went and I copied you and did the same thing.”
Fallon then brought out a physical image of Hilton’s ape and showed it to the audience.
Hilton’s bored ape is Bored Ape #1294. Bored Ape #1294 is a five-trait red fur ape with sunglasses and an s&m hat. Moonpay purchased the ape for her three days for 119 Eth.
“I was going through a lot of them and I was like I want something that kind of reminds me of me,” Hilton said when Fallon asked her why she chose Bored Ape #1294. “This one it does. We made like another version of it where he takes the hat off and blonde hair comes out.”
Fallon and Hilton then bonded over the fact that they’re in the same NFT community.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Fallon aped into the BAYC back in early November thanks to Moonpay.
Fallon’s bored Ape is Bored Ape #599. Bored Ape #599 is a six trait cream fur ape with a sea captains hat heart sunglasses and a navy striped tee.
