But everybody’s favorite star from the show, Twiggy Tallant, has been visibly missing since the end of the second season. If you want to know more about her and what she’s been up to, then here are some details from Twiggy Tallant’s bio.

She Recently Celebrated Her 30th Birthday

According to her Instagram post, Tallant recently turned 30. One known fact is that she was a stripper in her 20s and still calls herself  “The Nerdy Stripper,” even though she has retired from the industry.

She battled through hardships, lived life to the fullest, and has achieved a lot at her young age.

A eulogy for my twenties: What can I say, I lived the shit out of them. I was a stripper, travelled the world, got deported from Australia, worked for the Discovery Channel and found my calling. I climbed tall mountains, and surfed for days. I chugged Jäger our of super soaker. I performed on stages I never thought I could, learned to weld, rode motorcycles, ate everything, got a lot of tattoos. I GREW MY FUCKING HAIR! I battled my crippling anxiety, I found happiness and purpose and love. I lived exactly how I wanted, listened to no one, pinballed my way through my twenties, smacking into everything like Mr. Magoo on the way up and came out of it an evolved Pokémon. So cheers to my twenties🥂 May the fuck ups become lessons learned, that whiskey preserves me like pickle, and that good lighting always finds me. May the weirdo in me never die. Thank you to everyone that helped me make it this far. I’d be nothing without you xox • • • #happybirthdayme #goodbyetwenties #vomit #wellwereherenow #adventuretime

Tallant also worked in Canada as a model. She was even hired to work as a booth professional at a car show. In fact, that’s when she saw her first rat rod and fell completely in love with them.

Tallant wanted to learn everything there was to know about rat rods. So, to further pursue her interest, she took an automotive technology course at the recommendation of her friend, Stony Smith, a renowned Ontario customizer.

She was the only woman in her class and faced constant put-downs from students and her instructors. But Tallant persevered and decided to take a two-year program at a different school, which she completed in 2014.

Tallant then got the opportunity to work as an apprentice at Steve Darnell’s Las Vegas shop, Welder Up. This meant that she also earned herself a role on his show, Vegas Rat Rods, and she’s been a part of it since the first episode.
