In a groundbreaking move that blurs the lines between artificial intelligence (AI) and entertainment, virtual influencer Alba Renai has announced her latest venture as the host of a segment on the popular television show "Survivor." With over 11,000 Instagram followers eagerly awaiting her every post, the influencer unveiled her new role, promising viewers an immersive experience filled with emotions, mysteries, and exclusive content straight from the island.

Renai, the brainchild of Be a Lion, a subsidiary of Spain’s largest television company, Mediaset España, joins a growing list of computerized personalities breaking into traditional entertainment roles. This trend extends beyond Renai, as seen with the recent developments from Aescape, a lifestyle robotics brand in NYC, which has introduced the first fully automated AI masseuse set to debut in Equinox gyms across the city.

Additionally, Jarvis, an android barista in Hudson Yards, showcases the potential for AI to revolutionize customer service with its interactive features.

"Human talent is irreplaceable, and we do not intend to do so," explained Luis Movilla, director of Branded Content and Experience for Be a Lion. "She has not come to take anyone’s job away. It has not come to replace journalists or communicators, who are irreplaceable and have a value and a human connection that will never be achieved, at least in the times we live in, by a project like this," he insisted.

However, not everyone is embracing this intersection of AI and entertainment with open arms. Social media skeptics, particularly within the entertainment industry, have expressed concerns over the potential devaluation of human professions and the displacement of skilled workers.

"Would you rather put a robot over a person who studied for it and is worth way more?" someone wrote on social media. "But of course, this robot doesn’t need to be paid anything." "As a journalist, I am fed up," added a disappointed reporter. 

Some critics argue that Renai's capabilities, including her ability to create TV formats and scripts, pose a threat to traditional roles in the industry. Others question the ethical implications of replacing human talent with AI, particularly in fields such as journalism where human connection and empathy are paramount.

Movilla clarified, saying, "Alba is a collaborative work between humans and machines. Now, humans must have certain skills to be able to operate technological advances."

Another AI supermodel making waves in the digital realm is Luna Rodriguez, also known as LunaFit. She has risen to fame on Instagram, accumulating over 150,000 followers within five months of her debut. With her flawless appearance and curated fashion style, the model generates monthly revenue of over $5,000, proving to be a lucrative investment for her creators.

Luna is the brainchild of Innovate Creations, an innovative communication agency based in New York City. What sets her apart from other AI-generated models is her human-like appearance, carefully crafted to include subtle imperfections that enhance her authenticity. The agency believes that AI will revolutionize the modeling industry, offering unparalleled customization and specialization for brands.
