But first, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself, Chord?
On growing up on a farm: “We’d go and get the eggs from the chickens, milk the goats, it was like two hours a day of work, first thing right before school.”
On his first exposure to music: “I got my first instrument for Christmas when I was almost 4 and I was too little for a guitar, so my dad got me a mandolin and I learned how to play it.”
On his run-ins with fans: “I had a couple of teenage girls following me in the grocery store and they were giggling behind me the whole time. That was annoying. “
As for the pics…
Well, it’s official. With this and Darren Criss’s less-than-fabulous effort, it’s clear that the male members of Glee are not very good models. He’s a cute kid and the clothes are nice, but there’s not a lot going on here. It appears there was minimal Photoshopping, which is good, but he could have used a little makeup. His skin is very pale and a little ruddy, so it doesn’t photograph all that well without some help. And for some reason, the lighting is really harsh here.
So far, the winner of the Glee modeling contest appears to be Amber Riley, hands down. Girl really knew how to work a camera. Let us never again discuss that pervy Terry Richardson shoot for GQ, which was the worst out of all of them.
