Jaco to turn up the heat at Mr World

2010-02-10 11:46

Remember this everyman hottie? Jaco de Bruyn was named heat magazine's Man Watch winner in September last year, after competing against hundreds of not-so-famous torsos.

Now Jaco's taking his abs to the world! As the runner-up in last year's Mr SA competition, he's replacing the current titleholder, Stephen Segal (stop laughing, s'true!) at the Mr World pageant in Korea next month. Stephen's not available at that time because he's going where talent goes to die - Top Billing.

Well, rather Stephen than Jaco. His little cameo on 7de Laan a few weeks ago (he was about to take Annelie on a date) was truly craptastic. He's not made for speaking roles on TV. That's okay, with a body like that, who needs a personality or acting talent?

With those winning guns 'n buns and a pageant trademarked blank stare, Jaco's got an excellent chance of making it through to the top 5. We're rooting for you, boykie!
