Underwear Model



Last week we had our “Favorite Model” Poll and one of the models was Jon Varak. He’s a new model that has come on the scene as a model for Andrew Christian. We got the chance to talk to him and here is more about Jon~

How did you get into modeling? Discovered?

I got into modeling through a friend, who knew the talent scout at Andrew Christian. My friend sent in the picture. They contacted me and things just took off from there.

You have been modeling for Andrew christian how have those shoots been? 
The videos have been really fun. The first video I was really nervous because I didn’t know anyone. Didn’t know how I would be accepted as the new guy. All the guys accepted me. On set it is a lot of fun and there is a lot of laughing and getting the work done.

How many videos have you done for AC:
Have done  6 videos and another one coming up that was shot in LA.  I can’t give you details just yet but it was a lot of fun to shoot. I had a lot of fun filming Studburbia. The video was filmed at Andrew Christian house in Palm Springs.  The list of videos:

  • Overboard
  • Overboard Part 2
  • Road Trip to Miami Beach
  • Miami Car Wash
  • Studburbia
  • Twerk Off

Were you a fan of underwear before? 
I was always a fan of sexy underwear before the shoot. It’s nice to wear sexy underwear when you walk around. At the time I wasn’t aware of Andrew Christian before the shoots. Now my underwear drawer is overflowing with Andrew Christian from the shoots.

Are you boxers or briefs? 
Lean towards boxer briefs. The Twerk video was the first time i wore AC Andrew Christian Boxer Briefs. But after I wore them I really liked the boxer brief.

We had you come in second in our “Favorite Underwear Model” What was the experience like?
Was great and surprising. At first I didn’t know i was in the running. A few fans posted the link on my page. I saw who I was running with and was honored to be nominated. I also  knew a few of the other models. Colby was my inspiration for getting into modeling. He is a shorter guy and showed that shorter guys can do modeling well. Phlip Fusco is my gym inspiration. I was very honored to be in the running with guys that were there.

What are your plans for the future? 
I have decided to stay in Kentucky and finish my degree. So the next few months will try to as much photo shoots and club bookings as i can and then will focus on my school. I won’t quit until I become too old to model. But right now my education is a priority over modeling.

Jon is a really great guy and I really enjoyed talking to him. I think we will see a lot more of him in the future.

What motivated you to get into Modeling? What was your big break in the world of underwear modeling?
As a child I used to see all the billboard ads and Abercrombie posters and think about how cool of a job that must be. And I wished I was strong and athletic like those models were. So I started working out and building up my physique, and I was lucky enough to be discovered one day at age 17.

My big break was when I worked with photographer Bill Terry. He pushed me to take photos that I could use to market myself on various social and networking sites. My career wouldn’t be where it is without his guidance.

What have been some of your favorite shots you have done?
I’ve really enjoyed the magazine cover photo shoots I’ve been lucky enough to do. Specifically, DNA Magazine and Jocks Daily were a lot of fun with some really great shots. One of my favorite parts of my career in the modeling and fitness worlds is the fan base that I’ve gained. Hearing someone say that I’ve inspired them in some way never gets old, and shoots such as the DNA Magazine and Jocks Daily allowed me to substantially build my fan base and inspire more people.

You were named our readers favorite model in our unscientific poll. It was a lot of fun to do this, what made campaign to win the title?
The other models that were nominated in this contest are equally talented and equally deserving, so it was an honor to be mentioned among them. My publicist told me that it woud be a great opportunity to ask my friends/fans for support by reaching out on my social networks, and my fans pulled through by voting countless times. I have more than 120,000 Facebook fans, which is unbelievable. They’re the reason I won the Favorite Underwear Model title and I’m veyr grateful for all their support.

The brands you have worked for is the who’s who of the underwear world but is there any brands you want to work with?
I’d love to work with Calvin Klein and Levi’s. They are both iconic, legendary brands that have a massive following and produce excellent men’s clothing. I view Calvin Klein as the “attainable” runway fashion that you can buy and wear on the street, and Levi’s as the “everyday man” or the “man’s man” line that is timeless.

What do you have planned for the future?
I’m blessed that my modeling career is moving at a fast pace currently, and I’d love to keep that momentum. Additionally, I’d like to use my knowledge in fitness and nutrition (as a personal trainer) to gain more exposure as a fitness expert. Inspiring others to be healthy is one of my greatest passions, and I’d like to start doing that as much as I can. I plan to use my YouTube channel a lot more moving forward. I’d like to build up my “subscribers” and produce more fitness videos (and some underwear modeling videos as well). My fans have repeatedly asked me to make more YouTube videos and provide more fitness advice, so I’m excited to deliver that soon!

I have seen your profiles on Today Show and Good Morning American and your story is truly inspiring.  You have over come a lot in the last few years, what was the biggest help in cover coming the challenges you had the last few years?

Hey whatsup sir how are you doing thank you for having me on your blog today.  To be honest with you I really wasn’t doing anything except running away from all my problems with my alcohol. That is until almost 10 months ago. Things happened in my life, things got put in front of me that prohibited me from drinking. Been sober ever since. Now I love my life wouldn’t change a thing about it 🙂

Our motto here is “real guys, real underwear”, we posted one of your pictures from Tom Cullis on our Facebook page _MG_1027and the response was overwhelmingly positive. You look amazing, and aren’t the typical underwear model. What made you go into fitness/underwear modeling?

Ha! Wasn’t my idea! Tom Cullis and I go to the same gym. We where there one day at the same time, and when he saw me he said to me “You look HOTT! Have you ever modeled?”

I got in front of a camera for the first time ever with him. He said I was a natural. I said “No, I’m just being me man”. That’s all I have ever been. That’s all I ever want to be. Just me.

What response have you seen about your pictures that have recently been seen all over the net?

I’ve received multiple different responses from people. I’ve gotten some people who appreciate how I look.  And then others who are inspired, who are trying to better themselves daily, like I am

With all the recent visibility and publicity what has been the best thing that has happened to you?

I think I have reached, been given the opportunity to reach, more people than I EVER thought possible. For that, I am so very grateful

You look amazing in your pictures, what type of work out do you do?

A lot of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts, then a lot of cardio, then a healthy balanced diet. A normal sleep schedule helps more than you might want to give it credit ha

What are your plans for the future? Are there any brands you would like to model for?

Be happy,  stay healthy, and find balance in life. Those are my life’s goals

I never thought I would ever be doing all this, so its not like growing up I had big dreams of different underwear I could wear in magazines haha 😉 That being said, I would LOVE to work for Nike. That is one of my biggest goals currently

Thank you very much for having me on your blog sir!
