Celebrity dating service
According to its description, Raya is an exclusive dating app made for people in 'creative communities', which requires potential users to fill out an application using their Instagram account.
Membership is determined by two factors: overall Instagram influence, which is calculated using a secret algorithm, and the vote of an anonymous committee, who consider a combination of factors including your Instagram popularity before making their decision.
Earlier this week, someone leaked a photo of 30-year-old Kelly's alleged profile on Instagram, and writer Alice Hines, who joined the app three weeks ago, revealed in an article for New York Magazine that she saw pro skateboarders, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models, Dancing With the Stars professional dancers, a You Tube beauty guru, a teen celebrity chef and Moby' - just to name a few famous faces.
All about who you know: According to Raya, there aren't any specific qualification for applicants per se, but the app's site notes that they 'rarely, if ever, consider an applicant who wasn't referred by a current member' The application process is simple.
The more Raya members who recommend you or follow you, the more likely you'll be chosen to join the exclusive community that includes members such as Kelly Osbourne.
