He’s been mentoring North America’s wannabe Top Models for years. He’s far more interesting than Tyrant Banks and definitely more studly than his weave waiving counterpart Miss J. Alexander. But, that’s not a significant achievement. His can’t-quite-put-my-finger-on-it ethnicity gives him a certain mystique. He’s definitely talented, although the fact that his website labels him “Director of Esthetic” made me laugh a bit. But, the most important question is, do you think he’s hot? Would you SANDWICH Jay Manuel if you saw him walking down the street?
I’m on the fence. He’s a good looking guy. He’s definitely fierce, even though he just said in the last episode of Canada’s Next Top Model that he hates that word. But is it all too much? Too much silver glam? Too much fashionista? Would you kick him out of bed? I have to admit, my tastes are eclectic, but I am more of a Mike Ruiz kinda guy when it comes to giggly celebrity crushes.
