Our fabulous cast:
Austin returns to New York after a highly publicized break-up with from designer Marc Jacobs a year and a half ago. He left New York shortly after, modeling and living in London and Los Angeles. Now Austin is back in NYC to reclaim his spot on the A-List. Last time the paparazzi and gossip columns had a field day with him because of who he was dating. This time, he is braving them alone.
This southern boy seemed an unlikely candidate for the A-List growing up, but his drive and career in model management have afforded him luxuries people his age only dream about. Derek rubs elbows with celebrities and is seen every night on the party circuit, looking for the right (rich) man who can match his lifestyle, enabling Derek to retire at 27.
A celebrity photographer, video director, and superstar in his own right, Mike Ruiz’s client list is who’s who of A-List glitterati: Tyra, Dolly, RuPaul, Beyonce, Justin, 50, Britney and Christina. A fan favorite on RuPaul’s Drag Race, America’s Next Top Model, and My Life on the D-List, Mike is a legend in the making, one who has become very much a part of the A-List crowd he captures on film.
Actor, model, author, activist, air force pilot, jewelry designer, and one-time winner of CBS’s The Amazing Race, there is little Reichen has not conquered. Though most infamous for being the ex-boyfriend of *NSYNC’s Lance Bass, Reichen is in New York to make his Off-Broadway debut.
Hailing from Brazil, Rodiney has found success as a model in Los Angeles and Miami. He has accompanied his boyfriend, Reichen, to New York to stake his claim in the modeling capital of the world.
A salon owner and beauty expert, Ryan is on the brink of engineering a lifestyle empire. Legally married to his partner, they enter the next phase of their relationship as they pursue adding children to their family, and to their penthouse and summer home, of course.
