    I posted some stuff on Instagram (post workout pics, a couple selfies) in the last few weeks and I got a message from a guy, who's gay, recruiting me for a talent agency. Link looks legit and the dude seems cool, wants to do some swimsuit stuff for a pretty legit company. I've done some plays in the past but never modelling... I mean I don't know the business but I don't think this guy just wants to get in my booty I think he's a talent scout.

    What's you opinion Sherdog? I'm in the sticks and it's in Chicago, should I go?

    Look up "gay for pay" before you book that flight.

    I'm going to assume it isn't legit based on the fact that I've never been asked to model and I'm pretty sure I'm better looking than you.

    you should go, ensure you take some protection with you or alternatively tell them you are HIV positive.

    I'm not trolling for real, I'm doing research on this now to see if this is legit or not (I've done some acting before like I said in the OP). I was curious what stories you've heard about this in regards to scams, is it true this could be in an in for gay porn? The guy kept saying I was attractive and mentioning I had a nice body, but if he's a talent scout for a swimsuit company isn't that what he's supposed to?

    I'll call the agency he says he represents (which in all actuality looks legit, offices in NY, Chi, ATL, LA, etc...) and see if he is an actual agent, I don't see his name on the site.

    You guys are funny as hell and I knew I'd get roasted like Q on Worldstar, but I need someone a little more savvy to get good advice... maybe Da Speeit or someone a little more hip to reality.

    Still I knew jokes would come so do your worst lol

    yeah just had a quick look and this is one of the photo's. I guess this means you'll have to assume the position as well:

    Aye.... my confidence in this went out the window. Whole thing gives off a gay vibe, not trying to be ignorant just not really feeling it.

    It's a shame because I wouldn't mind doing talent stuff again, I've been in and out of it since I've been a teenager (21 now).

    Ah well
