    See? Great things still happen in our state :)
    Milan is such a bland farm town, known only for being on the border with Indiana. Wow!

    Eric is my son. I am white, his father is 1/2 African American, 1/4 Cherokee Indian
    and French. He looks more like my side of the family while his brother Evan looks more like his fathers side… Yea, you should see him too… :)

    I was once in LA and could have been discovered. Instead of going to the modeling agency I went to the LaBrea tar pits. Now I am a dinosaur. Way to go Eric. Keep up the good looks that you got from your wonderful mom & dad with God’s help.

    This young man has it all. His good looks and presence are matched only by his personality; he is fun, outgoing, altruistic and sincere. Look for him on the big screen or magazine cover — if not both!

    He is absolutely stunning. If he wasn’t already signed I would have wanted to have a co-ed season of Top Model. He’s going to go so far. Good luck Eric.

    commenters:Eric deserves the credit. No doubt. But don’t forget the genes. Marty and Better(Jim)aren’t exactly chopped liver.

    What is his IQ? I hope it is above 130.
    And to Noahy who says: ‘the white heritage could be spanish’ (which would make him a ‘Latino’). And what about white heritage from Italy or from France? that would not make him a Latino? Come on? What is your IQ, Noahy, what college did you go to? Fycking ignorant people….
