'Spain's handsomest police officer' on jungle reality show
12 February 2020 @ 19:16


'SPAIN'S sexiest policeman' who has been dovetailing as a model for the past 18 months is set to appear on popular jungle reality TV show, Supervivientes.

Jorge Pérez, 36, married with two kids, was just another member of the military-trained force until his photo was used by the Guardia Civil on Twitter in full combat gear with the caption: “Even if you see us in uniform on the outside, on the inside we're no different to you. We work for your freedom and safety. If you need us, call 062.”

The tweet racked up well over 12,000 'likes' in five weeks, nearly 5,000 comments and almost 2,500 retweets – very few of them relating to the public service provided by the Guardia Civil.

A bizarre about-face of the story of the USA's handsomest criminal, fugitive Jeremy Meeks – who ended up with a modelling contract thanks to his 'sexy' wanted photo and ended up marrying the Top Shop empire heiress – Jorge is the Spanish version on the right side of the law whose face drew the attention of a prestigious agency; in this case, Sight, in Barcelona.

Sight Management also represents the likes of the ex-Mr Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, and Kylie Minogue's former partner, Spanish model Andrés Velencoso.

Jorge decided not to become a full-time model and give up his police job, since he was very conscious that the former industry can be very fickle and, if he lost his looks or his face no longer fit what was considered 'trendy' in the fashion and cosmetics industry, he would also lose his sole source of income.

Whilst the risk of damaging his modelling career is higher in the military police, given that officers face criminal underworlds and possible violence, and despite the Guardia Civil job involving a punishing schedule and long hours, Jorge has managed to successfully combine catwalk and magazine jobs with his initial calling.
