What Makes Sean O Pry So Special
Ranking number one itself sets him apart from the rest, but having no background in modeling and still making it to the top of the list has been a matter of great pride for the sexy hunk.
He never imagined that his future would change over a phone call from ‘AIM Management’ and Sean made most of the opportunity. With his natural stellar looks and chiseled frame, he has stolen the hearts of women of all ages worldwide and is an inspiration for young aspiring male models.
