LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne was the guest of honor on the latest episode of the Full Send Podcast, and the 20-year-old chatted with hosts Aaron Steinberg, Kyle Forgeard and Salim Sirur about everything from her most lucrative brand deal to the most famous person to ever slide into her DMs.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit model also divulged her favorite trait in a man, along with her ultimate red flag when it comes to dating.

“My favorite thing in a guy is when they’re kind to their mothers,” Dunne said. “Like if they’re not kind to their mom, that’s the biggest red flag to me. Like if they don’t have respect for their mother, then they’re out the door.”

She also added that she looks for kindness and respect in a potential partner, and as the highest-paid female college athlete in the country, that person needs to also understand that she’s got a lot on her plate at the moment.

“Someone that shows me respect and understands what I do, like understands that I have obligations other places and that I’m busy and that, you know, I work,” Dunne stated of her ideal romantic interest.
