AND THE WINNER IS........ Vman Model Search

Surprise. Yes. It`s a TIE. Between CJ and Jake. They are both winners. *LITERALLY. Well, looks like you guys guess it right. Congratulations to both and cant wait for them to be on the cover of Vman Spring Issue on sale Feb 19th.

I was born to two English parents living in Alexandria, Virginia, which makes me a dual citizen. I go to high school in Alexandria.


What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to just kick back and watch a good soccer match or play in one for my school team. I also enjoy just hanging out with my friends and doing normal stuff like going to parties or staying in and watching a good movie.

How would you describe your personal style?
Pretty casual. Most of the time you’ll catch me in a pair of sweats and a T-shirt. However, I like dressing up every once in awhile.

What are your five favorite songs on your iPod right now?
“Such Great Heights” by the Postal Service, “Bryn” by Vampire Weekend, “Naïve” by the Kooks, “Time to Pretend” by MGMT, and “Wonderwall” by Oasis.

Who is your greatest hero?
Apart from my mum and dad, my greatest hero has got to be Cristiano Ronaldo. He is a great footballer and I love that when whole stadiums are giving him stick he just mans up, and it fuels him to play better. Plus he’s just a cool guy and a real trendsetter.

What was your favorite part of the photo shoot?
It’s hard to label just one part as my favorite, but the haircut was pretty cool, and it was also really great working with such an amazing crew and trying on all the clothing.

Why do you want to be a model?
I hadn't really thought of being a model until someone told me that I would be great for it. Now though, I would love to be a model because I really can't think of anything cooler than seeing yourself on billboards, shopping bags, and magazines. The traveling and photo shoots with beautiful girls factors into the equation as well.

I’m 17 years old and I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m finishing up high school. I have one brother and four sisters. My house is like a rave—loud, with tons of energy. I LOVE IT!


What do you like to do in your free time?
Play basketball, work out, hang with my friends and family, make people laugh, pop popcorn, and terrorize my brother Jackson.

How would you describe your personal style?
Vintage mixed with tailored. A great pair of perfectly distressed jeans with my favorite tee and an amazing sweater.

What are your five favorite songs on your iPod right now?
I love music and my iPod is full of songs that remind me of different points in my life. The most recent was Thanksgiving with a giant crazy family all trying to learn the single ladies dance for our annual family competition. Last year it was a game of horse in the snow. Others include “Love Story,” “One Is the Loneliest Number,” “Dirty Diana,” “Whatever You Like,” and anything Coldplay.

Who is your greatest hero?
My dad. The man has worked like a horse to make sure all six of us have a great life. He inspires me to care about the people that matter, stay level-headed, and work to my fullest potential. I love him.

What was your favorite part of the photo shoot?
Working with everyone was an amazing experience. They were all so professional, engaging, and fun. I learned so much.

Why do you want to be a model?
The opportunity to meet creative and talented people, and what the experience could bring, as well as the travel and the chance to jump into an amazing designer suit purely for the fun.

Do you guys agree with the result?? I am. It tells that if you have to choose between 2 really good things, why choose? Just have `em both? *LOL. That`s what I always do when I go shop and it makes me broke. -it`s not a good thing y`all. Btw, I`m flying to somewhere warm -Los Angeles tomorrow for Christmas and New Year. Really excited to check out the shop and surely I`m gonna enjoy myself there. Have fun.
