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.
