Male Modeling: Manhunt

Did you tune into Manhunt this season on the Bravo Channel? Manhunt: The Search for America's Most Gorgeous Male Model turned America on to the world of male modeling by focusing the camera on the ever neglected world of male models with the first-ever search for the hottest male model. Unsuspecting men were plucked from the streets and invited to participate in a series of challenges to determine who had the looks, style, stamina and charisma to be a male supermodel. Manhunt: Consisted of eight, one-hour episodes and followed twenty men as scouts plucked them from America's streets, bars, gyms and colleges to see if they had the look, the fire and the style to be a model. Once chosen, the finalists travel around the United States to compete against each other in a series of challenges.

The winner received $100,000 for their modeling career. Jon Grimkell Helga came out on top as the winning male model in the Manhunt Competition. He was born in Reykjavik, Iceland on June 23, 1982. His family lived in New York and Colorado, they arrived in California when Jon was in the seventh grade. Jon enjoyed surfing, playing piano, clarinet, baritone and guitar. He has a special girlfriend that means the world to him. He studies Astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz.
