Denver native and L.A. transplant Jon Jacobs has one up on that unattainable guy next door. He knows you’re looking and isn’t shy about showing off the hairy abs, chest and torso you’re dying to see.

And while we’re eating him up, Los Angeles photographers are snapping him up. It’s all part of helping Jacobs live his California dream as a model willing to do whatever it takes to make it.
