Starpulse: What made you interested in being a part of "Make Me a Supermodel?"
Jonathan Waud: I was interested in getting a closer view of the industry. I wanted to learn more and become a better model. It also seemed like a great opportunity to get exposure for the future.
In one of the episodes, you posed nude. Are you comfortable with nudity in photo shoots?
Absolutely! It’s not even an issue for me. I grew up in England so the taboo of being nude really was never there. The human body is beautiful, there are classy ways to display nudity for art or for selling a product and I think it’s wonderful.
What are the best and worst things about modeling?
The best part? I love the travel, I love meeting the different people, photographers, designers… other models. Two of my best mates out here are models that I met at a job. There is so much talent in this industry. I'd have to say the worst part is being away from my family and the negative stereotypes that can be associated with being a model.
How do you keep in shape?
I work hard every day with both modeling and my construction business. If I'm working on a jobsite, it’s always running around and heavy lifting. When I can, I ride my bike and go to the gym. I do abs classes and work my arms. I’m a bit active, I must admit.
How does your family feel about all the attention you're getting from the show?
My family and friends have been so supportive and happy for me. It was really hard for me to be away from them while I was doing the show, but it was also really difficult for my wife for me to be gone. We watch the show together now, with our friends, and everyone has been so incredibly positive. It’s been a great experience.
You've done a lot in your 27 years, including getting an International Business degree, owning a construction company, and now modeling. What do you want to do next?
Continue modeling, travelling… and hopefully have my own show one day.
