TikTok sensation Aspen Cougar is turning heads and grabbing eyeballs for flaunting her body—at age 56
Alexandra, aka Aspen Cougar, 56, says she’s proud to flaunt her toned body for all to see
A self-confessed cougar has hit back at cruel trolls who have told her to stop acting like she’s in her twenties. Alexandra, who is 56, revealed that she is nicknamed ‘Aspen Cougar’ because she’s a mature, older woman who “loves cubbies”. She can regularly be seen on social media flaunting her svelte figure in skimpy bikinis and outfits in a bid to prove that age is just a number.
In a recent video posted on TikTok, in celebration of her 56th birthday, she responded to some of the negative remarks she’s received. Wearing her long blonde hair loose and wavy, Alexandra can be seen standing up in a hot tub as she rocks a teeny red and gold sequin bikini. “I wanted to talk about age-shaming and ageism briefly because it’s something I started experiencing in my 50s,” she begins.
“Not often, but people would say, ‘you’re trying to be 20’ and ‘give it up.’” However, remaining firm, the confident and body positive 56-year-old continues: “I am never giving it up. NEVER!” The self-confessed cougar goes on to say how we have science, technology, nutrition, fitness and more knowledge than we’ve ever had before, adding that ageing is different now to what it used to be. “I just feel fortunate that I’m still here,” she says.
Daredevil on planks
Adventurer crosses world’s most dangerous bridge
Rama Jutgla, 24, who is known online as Ramilla de Aventura, shared a video of himself crossing the “most dangerous” bridge in the world, in the northern Pakistani region of Hunza. In the 55-second clip, Jutgla can be seen walking across the Hussaini Suspension Bridge above the 6,500-foot-wide Borith Lake.
The swaying bridge is constructed with a rope, and it has huge gaps between its wooden planks—one plank was even falling off. “It’s a bridge that few tourists dare to cross, but that many locals have to use every day to get home,” says Jutgla.
The creator who has over 50 lakh followers on social media was able to make it to the other side revealing a picturesque view. Jutgla explained that the bridge was made for locals, claiming “it is the only form of communication they have”.
