Hot For Words...In A Bikini...On A Boat

Yes, I drool over Marina Orlova aka Hot For Words as much as the next guy and because she was kind enough to upload a new video while on vacation I thought I would include it here. Honestly, nothing to do with the fact she is looking very good perched on a boat and wearing a skimpy bikini lol.

Hot For Words is her book that she published about a year ago where she helps people to grasp the origins of various words and phrases, which is also what she does on her YouTube channel. If you haven't spotted one of her other videos in the past, then you haven't been looking very hard. Marina is one of the most popular youtubers (currently number 72 on the Most Subscribed Of All Time List) and besides her obvious attractiveness, she makes videos that are funny and informative.
She has 354,772 subscribers that she calls her "students" and has had more than 336 million views on all her videos and people tune in regularly to listen to her define words in her sexy Russian accent that viewers have requested. From Moscow originally, Marina has a couple of degrees in philology (the study of linguistics and origin of words). She also taught English and World Literature to high school students and came to the United States six years ago to improve her English skills and to prepare for her Ph.D., but she ended up staying in the U.S. simply because of the warmer weather.

Marina burst onto the YouTube scene and quickly proved to be a favorite. She initially wanted to reach more people with her language knowledge instead of a small classroom of 20 back in Russia, she now has a virtual class of more than 354K subscribers. In each video, she takes word requests from YouTube users and discusses their meanings and origins. This is something that might at first seem boring, but when a buxom blonde with a Russian accent teaches you anything, it can be quite educational, proving that “intelligence is Sexy.”
