Tinder’s flame continues to burn brightly with many celebrities and everyday people joining the hot mobile dating app’s bandwagon.

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon has had a lot of fun with his guests by teaching them how to use Tinder and creating their profiles.

Who is the latest addition to the celebrity Tinder trend?

Newly single Britney Spears. Fallon surprised Spears by creating her profile in one of his segments.


According to The New York Daily News, before he introduced the blonde singer, Fallon described her as, “… recently single, she sings good jingles, she loves her Pringles and she’s ready to mingle.”

“Here at ‘The Tonight Show,’ we’re all about making love connections, so before the show, you did something cool. You let us sign you up for the dating app Tinder,” Fallon continued, stating the profile is indeed real.

“I want to stress Britney had nothing to do with this. This was our idea,” he added. “But she has the password now and it is her profile. She can do whatever she wants with it…. If you guys are on Tinder and want to date Britney Spears, just look for her profile and swipe right. That means good.”

Spears responded with, “I’m thrilled!”

Celebrities are now swiping right and left

Other famous faces include Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Lilly Allen, Lindsay Lohan, Chelsea Handler and Bravo’s Andy Cohen, who have all created verified profiles on the hottest mobile dating app.

Tinder has added a verified profile feature for celebrities, so daters will know for sure the profiles are real.

Other celebrities have joined a variety of online dating sites in the pre-Tinder days, including Sinead O’Connor, Martha Stewart, Matthew Perry, Adele, Jenny McCarthy, Charlie Sheen, Ricki Lake, Chase Crawford, Carrie Ann Inaba, Cheryl Cole and the late, great Joan Rivers.

At the end of the digital day, logging on for love in cyberspace or from the convenience of your mobile phone when you find yourself single is the easiest way to get back into the dating game.

How would you react to seeing a celebrity’s profile photo on a dating site? Would you write to them and try to get a date?
