She is one of the hottest properties in China at the moment after getting paid close to half a million Euro to spend five minutes standing outside a new car at a Chinese motor show.
China's car sales jumped by 13.9 per cent to 21.98 million vehicles last year and the country is widely regarded as the fastest growing car market in the world. And the girls traditionally hired to stand alongside the newest and best selling models have rapidly become some of the biggest earning models in the country.
And of the car show models, Tian Zizi, 20, pictured here lying on a bed of cash, is the biggest one of them all.
Every time it's known that she is making an appearance, there is guaranteed to be a media storm with photographers fighting for the best position to snap her alongside the latest luxury car she is being asked to promote.
She is billed as the best paying motor show hostess of all time, and as these pictures show she's not afraid to flaunt her cash.
Lying on a bed surrounded by 100 bill notes, she gave an interview to say that she doesn't care about the fact that people say she earned her money any way other than honestly.
But she doesn't do too much to stop the rumours including the suggestion that somewhere she has a wealthy lover who is the main backer of her appearances, or others who suggest she offers other services.
And she is clear proof that whatever the allegations, luxury cars are big business in China with top European luxury vehicles particularly in demand and manufacturers prepared to pay what it takes to gain an edge over rivals.
