IN CONVERSATION|JON HERRMAN
Name|Jon Michael Herrman
Hometown|San Diego, California
How did you get discovered?
I was recruited at a surf competition at Huntington Beach 2 years in a row, decided to check out some agencies and thought I could give a good run at modeling
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was in high school doing many sports such as football, basketball, swim, water polo, golf and track and studying
People would be surprised to know that I...
When I put my mind into something I do, I don't do it to be good. I worked to be the best. I want to be the upcoming #1 model in the world!
What's your latest obsession?
Being a better actor/model everyday in every possible sense I can be. I looked up to Ashton Kutcher, he came straight out of high school and became a great model and transferred into acting, which is exactly what I would like to do!
Your most prize possession?
My hukah necklace that I have had since I was five years old. It was given to me by my parents. They told me it was a piece of them that would always be with me...
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Ashton Kutcher, as mentioned above
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
One hour ago, to my dad!
Three adjectives that best describes you:
People Pleaser, Humble and Exciting
Describe your personal style:
Casual look—skinny jeans, v-neck shirt, vans and a hoodie!
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Florida because it is a lot like California but more calm, the beaches and people are very beautiful. I also went to Mexico but I wouldn't say it is my favorite place because it is not the safest place to visit!
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Forest Gump—Scene: The entire film—Life is like a box chocolates, you never know what you are going to get!
Your favorite sport:
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
San Diego, California—I would like to take you down to a Pacific Beach, it's like a little town almost, with many interesting places to check out and the beaches are beautiful!
If you were given a indie cable show, which song would you choose as your opening theme song?
It would be a show somewhat similar to (Always Sunny In Philadelphia) with some of my best friends and we would be doing stupid stuff/comedy, making people laugh and having a great time. The opening theme song would be Piano Man by Billy Joel
Your wish for the remainder of 2014?
To be the best model/actor of the year!
