Breakout Moment: At age 17, his prom pictures were discovered on MySpace by Nolé Marin, then a judge on America’s Next Top Model. (O’Pry’s mother watched the show, and encouraged her son to return Marin’s messages.) Within a few weeks, O’Pry was signed by Lana Winters Tomczak, owner of VNY Models, who has remained his agent ever since.

Cutest Quote: “When I first came to New York, I thought Fendi was a food. My agent asked me, ‘What do you want to go eat?’ and I was like, ‘That Fendi sounds pretty good.’” [NYT]

Known For: Blue eyes, puffy lips.

Hang-ups: “When I was in middle school I wouldn’t turn profile to people, because I thought my nose was so bad that people would just stare at it. I’m still — the appeal escapes me still.” [Interview]

Future Plans: Would like to attend college. [NYT]

Physical regimen: A former football player, O’Pry had to quit sports after he got mono, and lost a lot of weight. Now he enjoys golf. [Forbes]
