He's not only one of the hottest guys in South Africa but model Maps Maponyane is also a man of many many talents. We caught up with Maps on the set of a photoshoot with Heat magazine where he spilled the beans about his many talents and crushing over older girls.

So you were recently voted one of the hottest guys in South Africa, how does that feel to be known for your looks? It takes some getting used to and it's not really what I'm kinda going after to be honest. There's a lot more to me than that, but it's something I've learnt to embrace. I mean, there are a lot more things I enjoy doing, but things like that are just a bonus.

So, a man of many talents. What's the one talent we don't know about?

I am a keen golfer

Oh, awesome! What's your handicap?


Okay, we have no clue if that's any good, but congratulations. What else do you do? Video games? Hahaha no, when I have time but I unfortunately I never have any time. But if I do go around to a mates house to have a braai and watch the football we'll usually have a boys FIFA night.

Talking of football, who's your favourite for the World Cup? I'm obviously backing the African countries but I've always enjoyed watching Argentina and France. I love Zidane so I'm naturally drawn to that!

You dressed up as a doctor right now. What's the weirdest shoot you ever done? I don't know. I kind of get sick of the whole jumping poses in shoots, it's really awkward to act happy when you not necessarily feeling it. This is not strange for me. The oddest one is an ad I did for a phone app where I had to sit in a field with lambs, puppies and kittens in my dungarees. "But you can add me!"

That's akward! What is the most akward moment you've ever had? When I was nine I remember my friend had a hot sister who I used to go to his house to see...she was 18! One day she came home while I was playing in the garden and I ran up to her to give her a great big hug and I didn't see the sliding door between me and her and I slammed right into it and passed out!

Okay! Enough talking! It's time for a Juice -y Challenge!
