The Sunset Boy this week on The Torch Online Media is Austin Andrews-Vanderspek, who hails from Brantford Ontario. Torch photographer Daniel A Betts took a trip over to interview Austin there; read some snippets of their conversation and the rest of the photo shoot below.
Q. Where were you born and raised?
A. Raised in a foster home and lived in Grand Ben for half my life.
Q. What field of work are you in?
A. I work in sales. People say I can sell water to a goldfish, as my words are smoother than the cream cheese spread across a nicely toasted bagel!
Q. How long have you been modelling for now?
A. About 3 months.
Q. What are your absolute favorite hobbies/pastimes?
A. Love to bike! Anytime you find me on my free time, I'm either on my bike or fixing cars.
Q. Which celebrity was most influential for you when you began modelling?
A. Mark Wahlberg.
Q. Are you a bathroom/shower singer?
A. When I shower I always have the music cranked so of course I sing loud and proud.
Q. Do you believe in Love at first sight?
A. Love at first sight? Hmm, not so much. I believe in physical attraction at first sight but love is earned. I don't think I've been in love yet.
Q. What was your best/worst subjects in high school?
A. Best subjects were cooking; I aced every class. I'm an amazing cook!
Q. Who is your celebrity crush?
A. Selena Gomez.
Q. What could someone do if they wanted a chance to win you over easily?
A. I'm very Canadian, so pretty much if you start by bringing me a coffee you're in my good books already!
Q. If you could have just one super-power, what would it be? And why?
A. The power of love, as this world has way to much hate in it and I could change it a lot with the power of love.
Q. Do you like pickles? If "yes", with or without peanut butter?
A. I love pickles, but don't wreck a perfectly good pickle with peanut butter! Come on now!!
