A Utah native and former boxer, Wendell Lissimore has the right balance of ruggedness and beauty to become the next male supermodel (Tyson who?)!

The 23 year-old signed with New York’s Red Models in 2006 and has been working overtime ever since. In 2007, he landed the Bloomingdale’s fall catalog and an editorial in Vanity Fair, and by 2008 he was walking in shows for Hermes, Ungaro, and Thierry Mugler.
