Plus sized MALE model? What do you think about him?


Plus sized MALE model? What do you think about him?
I posted about him on a question asking about plus sized male models, so I thought I would make a question about him.
Link: Male plus sized model


Meet Zach Miko, Target's first-ever plus sized male model. :)

What do you think?

Personally, I think he's very good-looking. He has pretty eyes and great facial structure, despite his chubbiness. Would definitely date him, but he's married. Lol.

Updates:
Guys... He's a plus sized model. 😐 if he lost weight then he wouldn't be a plus sized model anymore, just a normal model. I see guys on here complaining that they wanted a male plus sized model so here is one. 😑

  • The plus-sized models are the same as the skinny models in the sense they are portraying an unattainable ideal.

    He isn't an accurate representation of the typical fat guy. He is over 6ft, has broad shoulders and above average facial aesthetics.

    Its the same for a lot of the plus sized female models. The typical girl who describes herself as curvy is 5'4 with a squash body type. The "plus-sized" female models are usually taller than 5'7 with a body-type that still has near hourglass proportions even tho she's carrying extra weight. They also have better faces than the typical girl.

    The whole idea of plus sized models being more relatable is just a joke. I actually prefer the skinnier models since they aren't pretending to be relatable.

  • hah about time

    its hard out there for a male model. feminists never bother to strive for equality in the modeling industry
    jezebel.com/its-crazy-how-much-less-male-models-are-paid-compared-1444858888
    even though there is a pay gap worse than any other industry out there, there is a whole lot less opportunities and the crucibles and competition are far more difficult and far less rewarding. how many decades have gone by with girls complaining about plus size girls not being appreciated enough or being held to 'unfair beauty standards' while not even a single plus sized male model even existed? if you say he should lose some weight then you have NO RIGHT to expect anything different from the female models. either lower the bar for him or raise it for them but dont be a hypocrite

  • I like the idea! I think people needs to take a look at "plus size model" and relate themselves to it instead of thinking how skinny/fit they should be relating to the typical models.

  • Clearly handsome BUT there's a slight different between plus size women and men - i know where your going with this

    A lot of women like their men bigger than her, not a lot of girls would mind a guy like that.. But men like their women smaller.. so plus size negativity becomes more relevant when its with girls... sadly

    • Eh, what about a person with anorexia? Would they be unhealthy too?

    • Clearly anorexic people aren't healthy.

  • He's pretty slim for a plus size model. Can't really tell with him wearing that shirt.

    • Lololol, I would like to know your definition of healthy. He is average. Not unhealthy.

    • @mikemx55 look at his wrists, he's small boned so for someone like that to be a little chubby they have to have a pretty bad eating habit and little to no exercise.

  • He's your average Joe.
    Realistically, whether he was muscular or stick thin a lot of models (facial feature wise) are average or below average in looks.
    Make up usually makes them look like they are much more attractive.
    So, even with the little weight added on I see him no differently than I would the average model.

  • I really like him! I think that stores need to start using more diversified male models as well. I find guys of all shapes and sizes good looking. And it helps guys to see what the clothing would look like on them as well.

    • It's true that most are thin models. I just find both of the industries are messed up saying lose weight and gain weight. How about an industry that says neither.

    • The whole point about models in a catalog is to represent the most average people as possible. What's the point of selling clothes that no one can wear? It's not their role to be what people should look like. Just as it's not the role of magazines to tell our girls what to look like.

  • He's very cuddly. Not a sloppy "plus size" at all.

  • Well, I see no problem with him at all. And he is very good looking. To all the people saying women are complaining about models not showing your everyday women but you dont have every day men on the run way. You obviously dont know who runs the fashion world and that is gay men. How come you think the first models in the 50's where gangly skinny? It was easier for the designers whom where all gay men to design for that body type. a lot of people dont know what goes on the fashion world and who controls it which is men

  • He is pretty cute I remember at my old high school there was a chubby guy who played on the basketball team and a lot of girls thought he was cute. Plus there is a difference between a fat person, chubby person, and a hefty person.

    • LOL, oh Target. Well I do admire that they're making efforts, at least.

  • I think he needs to lose about 20kg to look good.
