Gigi Hadid & Kendall Jenner Just Launched A Modelling Career For This Homeless Hottie

This guy's going from nada to Prada

This homeless guy's dream of becoming a model came true when he met these two Angels at the beach!

We've all been down and in the dumps, but most of us at atleast have a warm bed to sleep in and a roof over our heads. 

John Economou is one of the many that don't have such privileges, and has been sleeping under the stars in Venice Beach, ever since he dropped out of high school and moved to LA in the hopes of becoming a model. 

Just recently, though, he's had a stroke of luck and his stars have been completely shuffled since meeting Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner when they stopped for lunch at the beach, after shooting a commercial together. 

The 20-year-old shooed some pesky seagulls away from the girls picnic, before striking up a conversation with Kendall when she called him cute, unbeknownst to who she was. 

Soon enough the hottie met Gigi, Ansel Elgort and Kendall's manager, who were all sitting upon the sand, and got to talking about his story, his dreams and how he's living the hippy life. 

Being the Angels they are, the girls offered to lend a hand and got him in touch with Two Management - who signed him straight away!

Talk about being at the right place, at the right time!


There's not denying that the Milwaukee born beauty has the looks to make it in the modeling world, and he's already a heartthrob amongst the Venice locals.

He's even gained the nickname the 'Romeo of Venice', chatting up women on the boardwalk and even heading home with them. 

Don't go thinking John's the super soft model stereotype, because he's been doing martial arts for years to be able to defend himself and look after his two sisters. 

We've got the feeling this guy is about to make it big and won't just be spending his days skating, working out and picking up, anymore. 

Gigi and Kendall knew something special as soon as they saw it - so should you.
