Before Alex Cooper, Sofia Franklyn, and Call Her Daddy, before Ellie Schnitt and Brianna LaPaglia (Chickenfry), before Ria Ciuffo & Fran Mariano had their show Chicks In The Office, there was one chick in the Barstool Sports offices...and it was me.

In 2016/17, at 23, I was the only female contestant in "Barstool Idol." What was described as a competition-based search for the company's next big "talent" ended up being an exploitation fest live-streamed on Facebook & Periscope. I genuinely thought I'd be the perfect person to jumpstart their female-driven content - and had a thick enough skin to do it - but left (or, actually, got fired) feeling so humiliated that I swore I'd never talk about it again...until now.

You can send all hate notes to ali@aliweissworld.com. I just dare you to beat "Pretty decent looking chick, but serious question: Do NYC girls not pluck/wax their eyebrows? I can't stop staring at those Anthony Davis brows." Instagram/Twitter/TikTok: @aliweissworld
