He's criminally sexy and could end up being a model prisoner. Women all over the globe are drooling over convicted felon Jeremy Meeks, who was arrested again in Stockton, California, this time on weapons charges, and is being held on $900,000 bond. But look at those eyes!! The Internet has always had a fascination with sexy mugshots (remember Meagan Simmons?) but the ladies haven't gotten one for themselves in quite awhile, if ever. Enter Jeremy Meeks with his ice-blue eyes, Alps-high cheekbones, caramel skin, pouty lips, and well, gang tats all over his neck. But what's a little criminal behavior when a dude is this purty? Take a look:
The Stockton Police Deptartment put Jeremy's mugshot (along with his alleged accomplices) up only 24 hours ago, and already it's received over 60,000 "likes" and almost 18,000 comments. Typical of the ladies:
- Those eyes and lips ... that facial bone structure ... wow!
- They have the wrong man ... my man!!!! #freejeremy
- We should all post his bail -- if we all donated $1 ...
- He can break into my house any day!
And typical of the disgruntled men:
- Don't expect to come crying to the rest of us ordinary mortals when [he] beats the crap out of you or worse ...
- Women seem to like bad boy losers who treat them badly.
- He's not that good-looking!
But by far most people wanted to know why a guy like this didn't become a model instead of a jailbird. Said one commenter:
So handsome, it's obvious that with his physical traits he could have pursued a career in modeling or something of the sorts, instead he is a convicted felon.
Could this mugshot be Jeremy's ticket into the high fashion world? As someone who has covered the modeling industry for years, I can assure you that modeling agents are wondering that themselves. There's no doubt he's photogenic. If you can make a mugshot look good, you can make anything look good.
Problem? Few brands or designers would want to be associated with a convicted criminal. Not to mention, he could be in prison throughout the next few Fashion Weeks.
So, sorry, Jeremy. You could have been on the cover of GQ. But at least you'll be the hottest felon on your cellblock.
Should he be given a pardon so he can be a model?
