At 14, Sommer started her modeling career. At 16, she became a fitness bikini model. She won first place in the 2015 NPC Colorado State Championship for Teen Bikini.
One of Sommer’s biggest inspirations are her family. Both Sommer’s mother and her father were bodybuilders. She was raised in a farm in rural Colorado. Her parents show huge support towards Sommer and her brand. Ray also has two sisters who are Skylyn and Savana and one brother named Bronson.
24 year old Sommer recently posted videos of herself on vacation in Antigua, taking selfies of herself during her stay. Ray made the headlines when she started to date rapper Machine Gun Kelly for 3 months. She later accuses Machine Gun Kelly of ‘cheating’ on her with Megan Fox. Ouch.
Other than that, Sommer is well known for owning a solid social media plus a marketing skill set. To add up, a perfect body and the flawless face she got definitely helps! She started to gain more fame online after one of her sister’s friends took pictures of her. This made more brands to reach out for her, asking to sponsor their content.
She usually travels to Los Angeles most of the time for work and network, expanding her fanbase the whole time. Officially she’s a successful full time “Instagram model.” Apart from being a model she trains for the company Fitplan. Fitness plays a major role in Sommer’s life.

To our surprise, the beauty queen disclosed that she was not as sought after or popular as today. If the truth be told, she even told cosmo she turnt to home school from high school for being bullied for her sensual photos posted on instagram. Her intentions were to exhibit her body as a method of empowerment. However, her local community didn’t actually see it in that way.
Ray even received hate from bullies over the internet. Some say the real reason she posts pictures in revealing outfits is to make easy money. She reacted by saying that she didn’t have shame in what she did, and took care of her own bills. Her photos have left a trail of drama that’s followed wherever she goes, but that’s what happens when you’re youthful and attractive! As to us she is a role model for many and a symbol of empowerment expressed through sensuality. It’s 2021, after all!

She doesn’t want her photos to be excessively photoshopped on instagram. Sommer admits that she’ll smooth a zip, but will not photoshop her body as she believes it would appear to be a “fake advertisement.”
Ray has a net worth over $4M, most of it due to her videos and sponsorships. For every workout video she posts, she gets around $26,000.
