You probably know Brett as 'the hot one' from this season of VH1's hit reality series, America's Most Smartest Model. On the show, Brett won more academic and modeling challenges than any other model. Brett might have had a slight advantage though, having a degree in Marketing and being a campaign level model (Papi Underwear) definitely prepared him for all of the challenges thrown at him during ..Smartest Model. We sat down with Brett to share some more information on your favorite reality TV star.
Where is your family from?
My Mom was born in Connecticut and my Dad in Pennsylvania. My family is Jewish, Mazel Tov!
I have one brother Craig. He is 2 years and 8 months older than me. He's my best friends. Love that kid.
What did you do before modeling?
I was a student at the University of Central Florida, studying Marketing. I enjoyed it, but school stressed me out a lot. I always had to get good grades for myself.
Where were you scouted?
Gregg Avedon, one of the biggest models in the business, works out at the same gym as me. We started talking one day. He took my information to an agency. They took polaroids of me and set me up with a test shoot with Scott Teitler. The rest is history!
If you weren’t a model what would you be doing?
I would probably be working with my Dad, which I wouldn't really mind. It is just not my passion to be in the window treatment business haha.
What is your dream campaign?
I would love to work for Calvin Klein. That man makes careers. Maybe a fragrance for him. I met him once; he is a really nice guy.
Do you want to get into acting full-time?
Yes, but I would not want to give up modeling - its too much fun!. Acting is great though, because you can actually work on a skill. You can't really practice modeling. It is subjective.
If you could land any role, what would it be?
I would love to be on a TV show, a drama probably. I like being serious on camera, because I'm not so serious in life.
What is your motto?
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
