Traver Rains is best known for being one half of the infamous fashion brand Heatherette. He’s now started his own line, T. Rains which features a wide range of designs from silk-screened tank tops and t-shirts to custom couture dresses which draws inspiration from his Western roots.
To promote his new line, Rains enlisted Brad Hammer to shoot a bevy of your favorite Instagram studs wearing his designs in the heart of West Hollywood, CA. Watch Colby Melvin, Bryant Wood, Max Emerson (my favorite), Jesse Pattison and Noah Wright strut what their mamas gave them at such hot spots as Skynny Kitchen, The Abbey, PUMP and The Horn.
YouTube sensation Todrick Hall also makes an appearance in the hot promo featuring “Put It On” by Dejah. Ironically enough, the sexy studs are shown mostly taking it off than putting it on. Not that I’m complaining ;) Check it out below.
After three weeks of intense competition, we’re finally at the main event. It’s time to crown the winner of the 2012 Model Behavior Showdown. Who will take it all? Any of them would be a worthy successor to 2011 winner River Viiperi.
The voting turnout for Round 3 proved so gigantic, three of the four wildcard slots for the finals were snapped up by runner-ups from last week. The other spot was earned by Jay Byars who came in third during Round 1 of this year’s competition. Check out the Final 10 and be sure to vote often for your favorites. May the odds be in their favor. Ready, set, vote.

The 2012 Model Behavior Showdown is off to a great start. Thanks for all the votes from Round 1. To say it was close is putting it mildly. Only five votes separated first to third place. Sadly for the poor chap in 3rd, he’ll have to wait till all the rounds are completed to see if he gets one of the wild card slots.
Landing in first place with 1,296 votes was Sean O’Pry. Not surprising, given that he’s currently the No. 1 ranked male model on Models.com. Coming in at the runner-up slot with 1,293 votes was sexy Aussie Ryan Cooper. Good job Homorazzi.com readers. He’s a personal favorite of mine. Missing out on an automatic berth to the Final Round was former Survivor Jay Byars. He fell short by only two votes with 1,291. Depending on how the next two rounds of contestants fare, he stands a chance at the 2012 Model Behavior title.
With Round 1 in the history books, it’s time to shift focus to Round 2. Check out this crop of sexy male models and pick your favorites. If you want more pictures of each stud, click on their name for their feature.

I didn’t realize I’ve neglected my Model Behavior feature for six weeks. My bad. To make up for this heinous crime, I thought I’d restart this weekly feature with a super sexy male model. Meet 23-year-old Max Emerson. He’s got that innocent all-American look but with a bit of an edge and loads of sex appeal.
In addition to posing for famed photographers like Bruce Weber, Rick Day and Jeremy Kost to name a few, Emerson is also an accomplished writer and director of short films. Currently, Max is represented by Q Models, New York City. A few publications he’s appeared in include Cosmopolitan, Maxim, Seventeen and YRB. If you’re craving more Max after checking out his pictures below, you can follow all of his modeling adventures on his blog, Max’s Petting Zoo.
