Meet Lucas Gil

Posted by Lucas

Brazilian born model Lucas Gil grew up in the town of Votuporanga, about 320 miles northwest of São Paulo on his family’s cattle farm.

Having earned his degree in nutrition Lucas’s life changed when he entered the 2007 Mr. Brazil pageant and won. From there he entered the Mr. World pageant, where we was named first runner up. With this new title he began representing his country around the world and was soon featured in a Colgate Wisp television commercial and campaigns for Calvin Klein.

 

Gil’s early success encouraged him to move to New York, which he did in 2009. Represented by Boss Models, his first job in New York was a photo shoot with Fabien Montigue for Brazilian Vogue

Lucas has since graced the cover of Men’s Health three times for their publications in Thailand, Singapore and Brazil.  

  

Some fun facts about Lucas: His favorite foods are Brazilian and Japanese. One of his favorite bands is O Rappa and his favorite city is Rio de Janeiro. Lucas loves modeling because it allows him to explore " new countries, cultures, friendships and food". His hobbies are boxing, Jiu Jitsu, working out and reading. Family is very important to Lucas, he gets re-energized from a visit after he has been away from Brazil for a long time.
