Jeremy Meeks shot to Internet fame after his mugshot was posted to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page back in 2014.
His baby-blue eyes, razor-sharp cheekbones and chiseled jawline melted hearts everywhere, and from that point on he’s been known as ‘Prison Bae’, ‘Hot Felon’, and ‘Hot Mugshot Guy’ – amongst other things.
That picture received around 80,000 likes and was viewed millions of times, earning the now former convict a modelling contract with White Cross Management.
And, to the delight of women everywhere, he was released from jail earlier this year.

And now, also to the delight of ‘hot mugshot guy’ fans, he’s now posted his first much-anticipated modelling pic:
The photo has already racked up more than 24,000 likes in a day. So that’s a promising start.
But the best part? His modelling agency has taken his mugshot and used it on his comp card (aka. business card for models). Now that’s taking a shitty situation and turning it into a positive.
If his previous popularity is anything to go by, we’re sure he’s going to do well.
