Last week, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit revealed Brittany Mahomes as one of their rookies for the 2024 magazine.
While many celebrated Mahomes for this achievement, there were also a handful of critics casting doubts on her career choice. Model Lindsey Pelas, offering support to Mahomes, shared advice during her time at the Wynn Las Vegas last weekend.
“There will always be critics, no matter the job or industry, but who cares,” Pelas expressed to TMZ Sports. “Ignore the haters. If people aren’t hating, you probably weren’t doing great anyway.”
When asked about Mahomes’ potential in the modeling world, Pelas emphasized, “I believe she can—women can pursue whatever they desire. Whatever makes them happy.”
Mahomes was captured by the SI Swimsuit team in San Pedro Ambergris Caye, Belize, an experience she described as a “dream” while expressing gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with such an esteemed brand.
“I never imagined this would happen,” Mahomes remarked. “I’m incredibly grateful, honored, and thrilled to be part of this team.”
Some images from Mahomes’ shoot have already been unveiled. This year’s edition of SI Swimsuit marks the magazine’s 60th anniversary and is set to hit shelves in May.
