Hunk of the Week, Andrew Stetson

This 29 year old Canadian model is a sight for sore eyes, first thing on a Monday morning. Andrew Stetson began his career as a carpenter, becoming a male fashion model at the age of 19. Stetson was discovered by Norwayne Anderson of the NAM agency. "I spotted him at a bar and circled him for half an hour so I could see him from every angle", his agent says. "It was his lips and eyes that got me."

His body got me, too!

After a year of modeling in New York and Europe, he returned to renovating homes. Stetson started a home renovation business. He says, "I worked right away, doing editorial and catalogues in New York, Paris and Milan. But I really missed carpentry. I missed building things."

We get it. Hot, strong, and good with his hands...
Five years later, his friends and family encouraged him to return to modeling. He has since walked for top fashion shows, and has appeared in numerous ad campaigns for Armani, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Zara, Calvin Klein, Levi's, Bloomingdales, and H&M. Despite his successful modeling career, Stetson says he wants to return to carpentry. "I'm making the most of modelling. But to be honest, I would rather go back to carpentry. I love carpentry. It's not work to me. And it keeps me grounded and balanced. There are not a lot of models who have something else to fall back on."

Something tells me that you're not going to need much to fall back on, Andrew. Except, perhaps, my bed...
