Data Finds Nearly Half of Female Diners Best Match Up with Hannah Horvath's Food Personality
CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the season three premiere of the critically-acclaimed series, "GIRLS," GrubHub Seamless, the nation's leading online and mobile food-ordering company, teamed up with HBO to offer promotions and match the eating habits of GIRLS' characters with those of GrubHub diners.
In addition to offering promotions, including a video Instagram contest, Free Grub and discount opportunities, GrubHub Seamless and HBO identified the food profiles of America's favorite New York City twenty-somethings by considering personality traits and food moments in the show's first two seasons. When compared to the past year of orders, GrubHub data shows that 48 percent of female diners are best aligned with the food personality of Hannah Horvath, followed by Shoshanna, Marnie and Jessa:
48% of female diners have a food profile similar to Hannah: Hannah is hungry in every sense of the word. Outspoken, creative and opinionated, she tends to crave sweet and salty foods – often together – and enjoys takeout after a night with her friends (Or during. Or before).
25% of female diners have a food profile similar to Shoshanna: Equal parts girly, quirky and childlike, Shoshanna goes for food that is bite-sized and trendy. She lets herself indulge once in a while, but flogs herself emotionally for days afterwards. She tends to order off the diet menu when ordering takeout.
20% of female diners have a food profile similar to Marnie: Marnie sets high standards for herself and others. Her diet is heavily moderated and she opts for fresh foods and crunchy vegetables, or anything she reads about in fitness magazines.
7% of female diners have a food profile similar to Jessa: Unconventional, confident and international, Jessa craves exotic foods with lots of spice, color and heat. The more unknown the food is, the more psyched she is to eat it. She wouldn't be caught dead with a chicken finger, but has no problem eating an entire baguette (it's French, you know?).
To better understand the eating habits of female diners, GrubHub Seamless analysts also tracked gender differences in takeout preferences. In addition to being 26 percent more likely to include special instructions in each order, the analysis found that female diners are much more likely than men to order the following foods:
