Brooks Forester seems more than a little unsure about his feelings for The Bachelorette’s Desiree Hartsock — maybe that’s because he thought he was just signing up for the Mr. America Pageant. Desiree Hartsock has so many part-time / whenever-I-feel-pretty male models on her season, it's like a Zoolander sequel.
Brooks's official occupation is listed as sales rep at Fit Marketing, but the Salt Lake City resident with ten siblings (!) also has some modeling photos out there. Brooks can make anything look good, including when he has short hair, a clean-shaven face, Clark Kent glasses and a paper airplane in his ear.
Check out his Urban Talent Management page, with details on his waist (31), neck size (16), jacket size (42), inseam (34) and shoe size (11). Now we can all make him cheesy Christmas sweaters and they will fit perfectly. But that modeling site also says he's 6'2," which clashes with the 6'4" (and 11.5 shoe size) listed in his ABC bio. Is upping your size the male model equivalent of lowering your age in a Match.com profile? Also on Urban Talent, you can see a few of Brooks's best pics, including more of his clean-shaven look, and a nice shot of Brooks with longish hair and scruff in a suit. (Team Scruff, for the record.)
Even though Brooks, 28, is now in sales, it sounds like he's not really married to that field. In his ABC bio, he was asked what he does for a living and how important career is to him. "I feel that we get caught up in defining who we are by what we do,” he answered. “I am not so concerned with the perception of others. If my work becomes dull or boring but is prestigious, I'll change it."
Work can often be tedious — that's why it's work! — but maybe he can fall back into modeling when he gets bored (which may be often). It's hard to imagine anyone could ever get tired of wearing horse heads all day.
