An Instagram account is seeking out some of the poshest men on dating app Bumble — and it’s hard to believe some of the profiles are real.
Bumble users supply the “Tories of Bumble” account — a term normally used to describe a supporter of the Conservative party who is also a member of the privileged élite — with photos of the most middle-class people they spot flashing their wealth on the dating app along with witty captions.
The account’s tagline reads “Collecting Bumble profiles of future Cabinet Ministers.
“**DISCLAIMER: VOTE LEFT, SWIPE RIGHT**”
The account holder of “Tories of Bumble” told Business Insider she downloaded Bumble while at the pub after a long-term relationship ended suddenly, “and just made it a bit of fun.”
It currently has a surprisingly modest following of just 1,200 — but the profiles and captions are certainly worth a scroll.
It’s even got former Made in Chelsea star and “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” winner Georgia “Toff” Toffolo — she recently mentioned the account in her new Sunday Times column.
“The photos show tweedy chaps in Mayfair or Monaco, playing polo and bragging about the size of their trust funds,” she wrote. “Check it out. You might find a hottie on a horse. Yee-haw.”
The “Tories of Bumble” generally look like this.
Most claim to be 6 foot, appear to be hunting, and are dressed in a Barbour or tweed jacket.
