The cutest, most famous teen model of the Hi5 era grabbed the media’s attention recently after she officially started her new career as a university lecturer – possibly the hottest one yet.
Thanchanok “Bebe” Ritnaka, 26, joined ABAC University in August as a new after she graduated with an MBA degree and impressive 3.91 GPA from the same university.
“One week has seven days,” Ajarn Bebe told Yok Thup Kao Chao. “I spend three days filming a lakorn, three days preparing slides, and one day teaching.”
Bebe said her success as a student helps her be a better teacher.
“Studying is an activity I’ve always enjoyed, and I’m proud that I graduated with on the honor roll. Now I have a chance to teach and pass on the knowledge to others. I always tell them my studying techniques and what part they should focus on.”
In the previous decade, Bebe was a regular cover girl of teen magazine “Ice,” which dedicated most of its pages to photos of teen models wearing cute outfits.

Students also seem to cherish their new teacher’s glory days by asking her to pose with them in photos after class.
Despite her short time behind the lectern, student testimonials are already rolling in.
“Ajarn is very cute!” one male student declared in an interview.
“Her teaching is very good, and her English is easy to understand,” another gushed.
“It’s very easy to understand her!” a third young man confessed.
With a teacher like this, what student would dare fall asleep or play with their phone in class?
