Jeremy Meeks, the felon whose mug shot went viral has gained world wide attention for his oh so steller looks. The 30-year-old, who was taken into custody last week, has also received recognition from huge modeling agencies looking to possibly sign the felon as soon as he gets out of the pin. But does Meeks have what it takes to be a top model?
While on the red carpet for the 27th annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards, HipHollywood caught up with rapper and former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Don Benjamin to get his reaction on Meeks’ potential modeling career.
“He took a good mug shot,” he told us. “[But] It’s more than just good looks and pretty eyes. You have to have body posture, you have to have confidence. Some people aren’t really photogenic. I see a lot of attractive people but they can’t pull it off in the pictures. So I have to see more than just that one mugshot,” he told us.
The “Across the Sky” rapper added, “I hit my agent up and I was like ‘yo, everybody wants him, but he’s behind bars. They might as well take me, put me on since I have green eyes and light skin,'” he told us. “People keep hitting me on Instagram like “omg you look like Jeremy Meeks.’ I don’t see it, we are just light skin with green eyes.”
We say there is room for the both of you. Swoon.
