  8. Nando says:

    Read his story how discovered…a big applause should sent for him. I’m sure model is his big passion, its prooven from losssing his weight 50 pounds in a year? What a great effort…salute

  9. jn says:

    Des Moines, ahaha talk about BFE.

  10. Elizabeth says:

    I bet this guy is taken for sure! I would like to think he is not though. One word, YUM! It’s unfortunate that they haven’t listed his relationship status… Models.com get on this ASAP!

  12. jules says:

  14. cassy says:

    daaaaaannnnggg this is probally one of the hottest models i have seen in awhile he pretty much beats zac efron!

  15. Derek says:

    Yes, please!

  16. Carol says:

    Love those eyes!! Can’t wait to see more!

  17. Nigel S. says:

    I’ll have one in blue!

    I like his look very much. He is dreamy, isn’t he?
    There seems to be someone thoughtful and intriguing behind those eyes…
    I share Anthonys’ sentiment.

    He looks like a version of David Gandy but with a slightly vulnerable, boyish charm.. but you still wouldn’t test his patience!

  18. Molly says:

    This is one good looking guy…let’s see more of him-PLEASE!!!

  19. Ryan says:

    Wow people like him so much… i dont think hes anything special at all!

  20. Deanna says:

    Way to represent Iowa! I see a successful future for this farm boy!

  21. Jenny says:

    Amazing!!!! Who knew a hottie like this could come from Iowa.

  22. badiane says:

    The world will pay attention to this model.

  23. Lily says:

    What a good lookin’ guy!

  24. Amanda says:

    Powerful facial features and gorgeous eyes! Everything about these pictures makes me want more.

  25. jason says:

    I don’t think he’s anything special at all either. Boy next door look.

  26. Val says:

    All I can say is…. this guy has the Total Package!!

  27. Mika says:

    Really, this guy? Really? He’s nothing special at all, like a poster a few comments up has said. Average looking, and maybe with a better than average build. But overall- meh.

  28. Natalie says:

    This guy from Iowa is just beautiful! I hear there is alot of great talent in Iowa.

  29. Matthew says:

    Really Guys? He’s not that great? I can see the client’s booking him, like his bigger build may get him a Louis Vuitton Campaign or maybe Dsqaured, so for that he may do ok. He’s a little short, and because he’s a bigger build it makes him look shorter.. Who took him? Ford was it? VNY or DNA wouldn’t even consider him, nor would other top agencies I don’t think? Were there bidding wars on him? Do you know Betty? Or did he go straight to Ford and not see anyone else? I’m a little dissapointed, he looks sooooooooooo short!!!

  30. nathan says:

    Hey, I remember this guy. It was at a convention and he got 4 times as much call backs than anyone else. Most people got 1 or 2 and he got over 15. I think the only agency that didn’t want him was the one for little kids lol. And he didn’t look short to me. Prob 6’2″ish. Lucky guy for sure though!!!

  31. Leah Hardin says:

    Mickey!!! Of course you are a Ford model! I am a faithful America’s Next Top Model watcher and you were my childhood sweetheart! That would only make sense!

    My how you’ve grown up….strong features, nice ruffled untamed hair, unique face, 5 o’clock shadow, good body tone, mysterious eyes…yep I remember you from my dreams!

    You’ll do well! Hotter than all the other Ford Models by far! Should remain Model of the Week for the entire Year!

  32. Leah Hardin says:

    Matthew…you’re wrong…these pictures don’t do him justice, he’s not short. The angle on the camera is wrong.

  33. Leah Hardin says:

    If he built up his forearms a little bit more he wouldn’t have to worry about the angle of the camera deceiving his height.

  34. Leah Hardin says:

    Funny how it’s the men who are saying he isn’t much to look at….I don’t think Michael’s concerned with men liking him, He’s already won over the ladies!

  35. kristen says:

    Really, how are u guys hating on him? He is deff what I would like to see posing for me ; ). I’m going to add him to my list of the ppl that I’m allowed to cheat on with my husband rite behind Brad Pitt, hehe


    He has really interesting eyes, very animalistic.

  37. Matthew says:

    Trust me, he cares what guys think of him.. after all he’s the one who will be marketing the clothing to the general public. i.e: myself. But yeah your completely right about the angle, then again he’s only 6’0.

  38. Teri says:

    You are going to make it big!! You are going to be a model that people will remember by name. Good luck, even though by your looks, you wont be needing any. Your a little hottie!!

  39. Katie says:


  40. Jade says:

    hes totally the white tyson beckford!! only kinda thinner….lol

  41. Molly says:

    Hey, I know this guy and the pictures DO NOT do him justice…he is what you would call masculine and a nice change in what I have seen recently. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but this guy should go far, Good Luck Michael!

  42. joe says:

    looks like a smaller david gandy

  43. Tanya says:

    WOW, he’s so rawwwwwrrrr ;P

  44. Tony says:

    he looks like a mix btwn david gandy and sean O.

  45. Madeline says:

    WOW! I would guess a good looking guy like that would be from Missouri. Maitland, Missouri in fact!!

  46. Janos Gyorke says:

    great look!

  47. Joe says:

    He may be good looking and all, but he should get a new photographer. Any professional photographer would throw these shots out,as they make his head look waaaay too big for his body, it is just taken at the wrong angle. The photographer can make a big difference in your success as a model, I know. Good Luck, and appreciate your success.

  48. nathe says:

    yeah he is a gud looking guy. and hot he has it to be a model of the week so!!! keep it up man

  49. brandi says:

    looks great and would def like to see more!

  50. RS says:

  51. Jodi says:

    I think the last time I saw him he was just a little kid! I bet Val is a proud mama! Great to see the kid next door stepping out to try something like this. He has the look for sure! Best wishes guy!!! This is from Carolyn’s cousin Jodi on the “other” side of the family!!!

  52. Emily7 says:

    About time we got recognized for the good looking boys in Iowa! I would say farm boys, but not everyone in Iowa lives on a farm, seriously

  53. Lacy says:

    Wow!! This guy looks awesome!! Please give us more of him asap!!

  54. Parker Pembroke-Lloyd says:

    …I side with those who think this guy is only ok, nothing special at all.
    Of course he might get a campaign with D&G or DSquare2!, they all do!!…as long as you are young and cute, that’ll do for them!

  55. Ashley says:

    He takes my breath away!! Very nice!

  56. kiesha willams says:

  57. Laughter says:
