BENJAMIN KNAPP: "A YEAR AGO I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD BE IN NY OR MODELING, SO MY EXPECTATIONS FOR THE COMING YEARS ARE OPEN ENDED."
28th July 2014
Who is Benjamin Knapp?
I'm an Indiana native who has recently moved to NY to model and is loving this city.
What did you do before modeling?
I was in school in California studying Political Science.
If you weren’t a model what would you be?
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
I'm a huge fan of Hip Hop and have been told that I dance like I'm not white. I also really enjoy playing piano when I find a piano. And over the years I've become skilled at throwing food in the air and catching it in my mouth. Goldfish, blueberries, ham, jelly, etc.
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
I really have no idea. A year ago I didn't think I would be in NY or modeling, so my expectations for the coming years are open ended.
Celestial. Not sure why. It just came to me.
What’s no fun?
So many things. Muggy subway stations, uncharged cell phones, Ebola, paper cuts, Ted Bundy, soggy cereal.
Chips and salsa.
Current 'eye candy'?
Mila Kunis. Also the new Simply Caramel Milky Way bar.
Right now it's American Psycho.
The classic 1950's cars in Cuba. I mean how are those things still running?
What’s your beauty secret or essential grooming routine?
Cold showers. Not so much a beauty secret, but they wake me up and get me going.
A quote that sums you up:
“Ben you're... you're a weirdo."
