Guilty Pleasure...

With so many reality shows out there nowadays, it's fair to say that they've completely many people's lives/careers, whether you are a winner or a loser.

John Kenney, born September 26, 1981, in Branford, Connecticut, is an American model, best known as a contestant of Survivor: Vanuatu.

Kenney attended Branford High School, where he played basketball, lacrosse and baseball. He then attended college for two years at Northeastern University in Boston, where he studied Media Arts and Design. After college, Kenney moved to Manhattan, New York to pursue a modelling career. While there, he also modelled in Paris, Milan, Korea and Miami.

In 2004, Kenney relocated to Los Angels and worked odd jobs as a mechanical bull operator at a saddle ranch bar, construction worker and an x-ray technician. Finally when he saw the popular show Survivor on TV, he decided to audition and was immediately cast.

Although he became the eighth contestant to be booted from the series (despite his good looks and superhot body) this feature got the attention of big modelling agencies and he has since appeared on the pages of countless editorial magazines.

Recently, he's been shortlisted by DNA as one of the L.A. castings for the DNA Model Search 'o8. After seeing all the candidates, I must say it's a very tough choice to make but Kenney is no doubt one of my favourites! So if you wanna see him graces 'shirtlessly' on the cover of the upcoming issue of the magazine, then you know what to do, cast your vote HERE!

Apparently, if modelling doesn't succeed (which is quite unlikely), Kenney would love to eventually get involved with teaching art and film as he always considers himself an artist, particularly with computer graphic design.

Kenney describes himself as friendly, warm and a people person who at the same time is very competitive. He enjoys playing basketball, marathon running, travellin and hiking. And last but not least, Kenney is currently single and his hero is his mom. Awww...

I do believe I was the first to scan that pic of John Kenney in the sweater and uploaded it on the internet.
