Back in November, The Underwear Expert sat down with 2(x)ist model Andre Ziehe and asked him about competing with models in Brazil. “I don’t really analyze it as ‘competition,'” he said. “There are many good guys in the business but what makes the biggest difference in my opinion is the professionalism. That’s what really counts in the long run.”
Ziehe got his start in 2003 working for Elite Model Management in Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo is also where Rodiney Santigo, who has modeled for Rufskin and appeared on the short-lived A-List New York on Logo, got his start in modeling. Moving to the US has proven to be significant in the careers of these two models and has expanded their brands exponentially.
