In 2014, Jeremy Meeks became one of the most talked about felons of all time when his unusually attractive mugshot went viral. The photo, then shared by the Stockton Police Department, garnered more than 100,000 likes and 12,000 shares on Facebook.
Meeks was arrested for gun possession in Stockton, Calif. and later sentenced to two years in prison. He was also sentenced to mandatory participation in a 500-hour Bureau of Prisons Substance Abuse Treatment program.
Fast forward to 2016 and Meeks is out of prison and back in front of the camera.
It looks like Meeks’ modeling career is finally getting started, as he posted his first headshot to his official Instagram page.
As of June 14, 2016, the photo has garnered almost 1,000 comments, plenty of them from Instagram users who have nothing but love for this former felon. One user writes, “why do I feel so thirsty all of the sudden?” another quips, “He just sooooo gorgeous” and one very eager woman asks, “U single yet.”
This is definitely just the beginning for Meeks, who is represented by Los Angeles-based agency White Cross Management. The agency is also reportedly looking into getting the viral star his own reality TV series.
