With the unmistakable swagger of a rock god (think Jim Morrison meets Michael Hutchence), indigenous Aussie find Jake is chock full of surprises. This one time plumber was scouted by an agent from Chic in a Sydney bar, and has since worked for brands like Ksubi and shot for GQ and Glamour magazines. From a cultural background associated more with spirituality and dreamtime than with fashion and commercialism, Jake has an edgy urban look that could carry him far. Derek Zoolander once pondered about how many Aboriginals were models – we’re happy to say that Jake is here to fill the void!

    He is different which is a good thing. Indigenous Australian must be a first.

    WoW, Jake is exceptional, though the only bit of Australian Aborigine I can see in him are those wonderful lush eye brows! Hope we’ll see a lot more of this kid!!!

    Obviously Australia was colonised by the British & the majority of Aussies have British surnames/ancestry. So, how ‘indigenous’ can he really be when he has a prominent British surname? ‘Gordon’ is a Scottish surname, not an indigenous Australian one.

    I never thought Australia would leave a hot curly like this.

    Zara Australia was invaded by the British 200 years ago so many indigenous people would be bi racial but I would assume that Jake is much more proud of his aboriginal culture. I know I would be.
    He has so much potential as a model…who cares about his surname being anglo. It certainly doesn’t diminish his unique appeal.

    He doesn’t have any real stand out qualities in my opinion.
    And the aboriginal claim, it may be true, but who would have noticed without being told?
    i wouldnt say anything special, but hes tall and thin, isnt that the only thing you need to be these days?
    everyday look, somewhat interesting background.

    Jake is amazing! Exciting things to happen for this boy with the right team behind him, as for his background I have seen an article he comes from an Aboriginal mother and a Mediterranean/European father. There is a classic but edgy vibe about him.

    Great figure as well as a strong editorial face, be sure to see him owning the International runway circuit!!!

    Jake is one of the loveliest people on the planet, I’m so proud ot know him and of his work, he’s not one to bignote himself while being proud of who he is and where he’s from. Jake works for those less fortunate than himself whenever he gets the chance… all round good guy and so HOT! Go well Jakey xox
