Hollywood Hibiscus Bad Boy ppaf

BAD BOY does not like to be mistaken for his brother, PLAYBOY, but sometimes it happens. BAD BOY definitely thinks his electric orange-red petals have more star power. They sure contribute to his edgy reputation. Don’t let the name fool you, though. BAD BOY likes to project an air of mystery, but he’s reliably the highlight of every party. You’ve seen him out with SOCIAL BUTTERFLY and FIRST TO FLIRT. “I can’t choose,” he says. “They’re both gorgeous.”

You might be a BAD BOY if:

  • You have impeccable style.
  • Everyone fights for your attention.
  • You enjoy living on the edge.
