Career

2006–12: Career beginnings

After moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting, she began doing professional lingerie modeling and worked as a stripper and an escort to support herself. She attempted to break the world's fastest-talker record on Guinness World Records Unleashed, but was unable to break the record. In 2006, Paytas' made her first television appearance as a correspondent to Greg Behrendt on The Greg Behrendt Show. She appeared on the show for its full thirteen–episode run before it was cancelled after only airing one season. The following year in 2007 she appeared on the second season of Who Wants to Be a Superhero?. Paytas played "Ms. Limelight." She was on the show for four episodes although she was eliminated from the competition portion of the show on the third episode. On January 3, 2007, Paytas started her YouTube channel "blndsundoll4mj". The channel was originally dedicated to movie director Quentin Tarantino, whom Trisha idolized, but soon after being created, Paytas began to focus on other types of videos. Blndsundoll4mJ primarily gives fashion, beauty and relationship advice videos.

From 2008 through 2010, Paytas appeared on television shows including The Price Is Right (2008), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2011), Jane by Design (2011), Huge (2011), and Modern Family (2011), among others. She portrayed Jessica Simpson in the 2009 Eminem video "We Made You." She also appeared as a background dancer for rapper M.I.A. at the Scream Awards in 2010. Later in 2010, she appeared in the videos for "Playing the Part" by Jamey Johnson, "A Girl's Got To Do What A Girl's Got To Do" by Barbwire, and "Tears Dry on Their Own by Amy Winehouse. Paytas made an appearance in a Guns N' Roses' tour video, playing a mobster's girlfriend. Paytas starred in the Les Savy Fav video for their song "Sleepless in Silverlake" and portrayed Marilyn Monroe. In 2012, she played a stripper in The All-American Rejects' music video for "Beekeeper's Daughter". Paytas appeared in 2010 on an episode of My Strange Addiction as a self-admitted tanning addict. Despite being aware of the high chances of developing skin cancer, Paytas insisted on visiting the tanning salon at least daily, and follow up with a spray tan. Later the following year, in 2011, she appeared on an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker but was not accepted.

During this time, Paytas made a number of "trolling" videos, which she told Business Insider were a way to "dumb myself down" in order to get more attention and views. This involved videos claiming that dogs do not have brains, or that she was voting for the 2012 Republican candidate for President of the United States, Mitt Romney. In an interview with Perez Hilton, she commented on her career aspirations, saying:

I have a lot of insecurities. I just want people to know me and to love me, because I have no love. I literally have zero friends. So I like people to adore me, but I never had a talent that made people adore me. So I would try everything, but nothing really worked. But, honestly, YouTube was a godsend. I could literally be myself, and people loved it.

2013–present: Breakthrough and music career

On January 18, 2013, she appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil, discussing the phenomenon of slut-shaming, particularly its prominence on social media.
