My suggestions..all Male models should boycott the industry. Demand better wages. Believe me..they need you more than you need them.

What's so special about RJ? You'll find thousands of guys like him all across American universities, he looks very common and I don't see any special feature.

If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15 KJV Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: Exodus 20:8‭-‬9 KJV Saturday is the day of the Lord The claim that Christ by his death abolished his Father’s law, is without foundation. Had it been possible for the law to be changed or set aside, then Christ need not have died to save man from the penalty of sin. The death of Christ, so far from abolishing the law, proves that it is immutable. The Son of God came to “magnify the law, and make it honorable.” [Isaiah 42:21.] He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law;” “till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law.” [Matthew 5:17, 18.] And concerning himself he declares, “I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea, thy law is within my heart.” [Psalm 40:8.] GC88 466.3 Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

They never say how many times they had to sleep with Tommy Hill or his male agents to get to be the face.Corrupting young boys minds to take the same path not telling them they have to have sex with the male designers and photographers in the industry.

Times and look ideals change, but generally, male models like their feminine counterparts are usually too slim and too underdeveloped. They look like adolescents dressed up as adults.

Waist of good looking man! They can be living much better productive life style... I feel like they are being used by the Rich Elite...yes few of them get big money!! but its a small % compered to how many models there are.... This industry is just not healthy, parents needs to teach their children that you can do better things in your life then becoming someones B**

And here I am a fairly handsome mixed race guy born with blue eyes, who suddenly realises there is no space for people of colour in fashion... From the moment they are casting, its literally blonde, blue eyed white guy in mind.

This industry is run by Jew fags who exploit these dudes for sex, yes to make it in this industry these guys would have to suck major Jew fag cocks and take it in the ass to land that contract, very similar to Hollywood casting couch run by Hollywood Jew fag producers. These young naive effeminate dudes entering or being recruited just have no idea to what's coming, this is the sad reality of this depraved and immoral industry.

Nobody wants to talk about these older gay men who take advantage of these young men for sex. Disappointed the documentary glossed over the gay male predators🤔
Aubrey Rex (6 months ago)
RJ is where he is because he's not afraid to have sex with gross pedophiles and rapists! Hard work is just the cover story as it is in most of the corrupt world we live in. That's what he means by "management."

Faithful Christian (1 year ago)
What I believe is important for a male model is to not only have a classically handsome face; but at the same time, have a face which is also slightly different and unique.  This gives you "a look" which can be marketed.  If a model is only classically handsome (symmetric face), I'm afraid he doesn't stand out from all other classically handsome models.  You need a characteristic that makes you unique and remember able.  And if you are remember able by the public, you will have name brand recognition and that is always helpful to sell yourself.

I read about a malemodel a couple years ago, who came forward and told that he was offered a model contract, if he would have regular sex with the CEO of the company, and he refused and after that, no agency would book him!  I wonder how many models have to fuck their way up??
SinSeer (1 year ago)
Sidney Piccot they shouldn't have to give up their morals and be pressured into sex in order to succeed.
brejnhardt wtf are justifying pressuring young men to have sex bc you can offer them opportunities?
brejnhardt (1 year ago)
No, I would do it if the guy is up to it, but I wouldn't do it if he said no..
Animoh (1 year ago)
+brejnhardt Well would you do it if you have the opportunity but the said guy is not willing to do it? I have come across men who offered me money for sex but never bothered to find out if I'm actually interested.
brejnhardt (1 year ago)
Hmm Well I guess I am not better than anybody else.. I love young gorgeous men.. And if I got the chance to have sex with one of them I would properly do it..

Is it just me or is this reporter really awkward? Maybe it's the fact that he tried to model but failed and now has to interview guys that are younger, better looking and having more success in the industry >.<

you said new york why did you put a runway fashion show in London to this video? stupid American. most of models are from europe. New york is not the hub of fashion, when there only cheap outdated low-class no-name American brands. The real fashion cities are London, Paris, Milan, when they are home of truly high-fashion brands like Burberry, Chanel,Hermes Givenchy Saint Laurent, Louis vuitton, Lanvin, Valentino, Balmain and etc. and most of Americans dress so bad like a homeless and have no sense of fashion

Khanh Ho (2 years ago)
A "shitty Ph.D." does count. You have been talking through your anus and you are now upset because you have no credentials. This means that your ideas of "common sense" are simply chimeras that you chase through Google. Economics does not involve "common sense." But you are now threatened, so instead of making recourse to any real arguments, you have decided to spew profanity and racism. I hear racism and fascism is up on your little continent. You clearly are a fine example of this trend. Good luck living in your Eurozone. Maybe you can apply your "common sense" to fix that wilting currency of yours.
cokpeotfg4 fcdck (2 years ago)
+Khanh Ho a shitty ph.d doesnt count and i dont give a shit or one fuck about your phd, when you have no common sense like everything you say is stupid. i bet you are a typical dumb Asian who feels the need to show off, when its clearly nothing
Khanh Ho (2 years ago)
It's not common sense. I have a Ph.D. You're silly. And your analysis smacks of territorial chauvinism.
cokpeotfg4 fcdck (2 years ago)
+Khanh Ho you don't have get a economic degree to know the facts. Its just some common sense. so Go have some common sense

RJ King is so rare in that he gets by completely on good facial bones! His body is neither cut nor skinny, it's just a regular soft, lazy dude's frame with not much fat (like mine - I should know, I can't stand exercise).

Glad that so many gay men have found a way to develop self confidence. Time has been kind and the males no longer have to be good looking.

WHO is the model on the photo at the right side at 07:04?? Please, anyone knows?? He is beyond handsome.
gojewla (2 years ago)
I had no idea they didn't really get paid for their work. On a random note - it's funny, the main character looks fantastic in photos, but when you see him talk and walk, etc., he doesn't even look like the same person. Almost not like a model should look at all.

+Fernando Pereira , seu tapado ele é o apresentador do video! Pedro Andrade ,ele fez parte do programa manhattan connection da globonews, e foi modelo internacional, mas se queimou no aqui no brasil ,ele mentiu dizendo que tinha aparecido em um outdoor em nova iorque, apareceu em varios programas dando entrevistas aqui no Brasil , até que descobriram que era mentira, ai ele sumiu.. só voltou a aparecer tempos depois como namorado do lance bass, depois como apresentador do manhattan connection e agora como reporter...
