Confessions of an Underwear Model: Nicholas
Posted on 04 December 2015
We had the pleasure of working with Nicholas on our most recent editorial, and he was such a joy. He's such a genuinely nice guy who destroys that stereotype of models only caring about what they look like, despite the fact that he's got a sexy smolder that's actually debilitating. We really enjoyed his positive attitude and his willingness to model our product, even though he had never modeled underwear before (in public, too!) So without further ado, here's some more intimate information about this majestic guy.

Favorite motto: Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything & make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, & expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past & press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side as long as you are true to the best that is in you. Trust in God’s plan.
How long have you been modeling?
What was your first modeling gig?
Commercial for local corporation
What is your favorite type of modeling?
What’s the craziest photo shoot concept you’ve done?
Besides Body Aware, What is your dream modeling gig?
Why do you model?
Honestly God has blessed me with the ability to do so, so hopefully I can use modeling to in some way bring joy to others.
How did you end up going from army man to model man?
I was medically retired from the Army due to injuries sustained in combat. If I could and it was up to me I would still be serving my country as a combat medic. I started modeling on the side as I am pursuing a degree in exercise science.
Do you think there is a stigma against men wearing "skimpy" underwear?
Out of curiosity, what's the story behind your chest tattoos?
It signifies the struggle to choose between right and wrong, good and evil, every day. Everyone has the choice every day. It is a reminder that good exists, but so does evil. I chose to put the devil on the left over my heart because evil is often a mask and superficial covering up who we are but Jesus is on the right peering into my heart and can see my heart for what it truly is and who I truly am.
What's the craziest photo shoot modeling story you have?
I am still new. Nothing crazy has really happened. Other than walking around Papago Park in skimpy underwear haha
How do you prepare for a photo shoot?
I juice for three days prior and then dehydrate the night before and do not eat or drink the day of before the shoot
Do you manscape?
How many times a week do you work out and what’s your favorite routine?
Two times every day but Sunday. Leg day.
What is your favorite style of underwear?
What do you like about BodyAware?
What would be your perfect date?
It doesn’t really matter what or where the date would be if it is with the right person.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you be stranded with and with what three items?
Hopefully a smart, intelligent, funny, beautiful woman. A satellite phone to call for evacuation, a lighter to make fire for light and warmth and a gun for protection and hunting for food.
Your most embarrassing moment?
When it somehow came out that I thought Alaska was an island when I was 21 years old and in the Army, I never heard the end of that.
Where can we find you on social media?
