bio-hotforwords-bookMarina Orlova, known to millions of fans around the world as a sexy master of language, HotForWords, is a 29 year old Internet “sensation”. Hailing from Moscow, Marina has two degrees in philology which is the study of linguistics and origins of words.   Back in Russia Marina taught English and World Literature to high-schoolers. She came to the United States six years ago to improve her English skills and prepare for her Ph.D., but she ended up staying in the U.S. simply because of the warmer weather.


    3 years ago, Marina burst onto the YouTube scene.   Her initial goal was to reach more people with her language knowledge.   Instead of a classroom of 20 back in Russia, she now has a virtual class in the thousands. In each video she takes word requests from YouTube users and discusses their meanings and origins.   Something that might, at first, seem boring, but when a buxom blonde with a Russian accent teaches you anything, it can be quite educational, thus proving, as her tag-line states, that  “Intelligence is Sexy.”

    Called the “Sexiest philologist in the world” by New Yorker Magazine, Marina was voted the World’s #1 Sexiest Geek by, she’s a regular on Fox Network’s O’Reilly Factor Show, she was voted the 5th hottest woman on the net by G4 TV, she’s been recommended by the New York Times Magazine,  she was mentioned in Cosmopolitan as one of the top 3 channels on YouTube, and she was part of the Best Online Campaign of 2009! In addition, Marina just completed her book, published by HarperCollins, entitled Hot for Words, and she stars in a killer iPhone game called Attack of the Bikini Zombie Babes from Outer Space!
