Cosmo Gets BUILT!

Here is the first article from Cosmopolitan – previewing the show last November:

Hot and Handy Models Are More Than Just Eye Candy
Cosmopolitan magazine – November 29, 2012 at By Ariel Nagi

We met up with some really hot men today (yes, this is what we do at work) who changed our whole perception of deliciously, sexy, steaming, smokin’ hot models (OK, they only kind of changed it up).

These five caliente guapos are part of a new reality TV series on Style. “Built” premieres in January and will showcase the men doing handy work in different homes (mostly in their tank tops, as one guy informed us). They’re all high-fashion male models, but they prove they’ve got more skills than just killing it on the runway and taking drool-worthy pics.

The back story goes beyond just dudes to look at while they fix a broken pipe. Hot and Handy is actually a construction company started up by part Panamanian hottie Shane Duffy. What’s the criteria for making the cut? Simple: you have to be hot and handy. All five of the men have construction backgrounds and despite slipping into modeling after agents stalked them in the most random places including Sea World (no, we’re not kidding, that’s where one dude was discovered) met Duffy, and eventually became part of a company developed in 2010. And how sweet were these guys?? They all said they were just really excited to provide a service for families after they get treated like “pieces of meat” at times in the modeling industries. Now, they get to showcase their talents (and good looks) Monday nights at 9pm beginning January 28. But we have to admit that despite their handy skills, we will probably be looking at them as, well, pieces of meat too. We just don’t get to see hot men in construction every day!

  1. I was able to watch some reruns, and like the show. I tried looking them up on the internet, but can’t seem to find enough news about the show. I can’t even find them on social media. not even on youtube. I’m just surprise with such a great show and so much potential it seems it has not taken off.


  2. Would you come to Philadelphia for a dressing room makeover ? At least, make me a revolving shoe case and clothing rack. Is there a kit that can be put together if you won’t come to Philly?


  3. Where can I get a tank top? Love the show!


    • I just learned about the show and caught three re-runs. The show was done so well that I can only think that it was a marketing failure as no one that wasn’t a Style Network loyal watcher knew.(and possibly letting Donnie talk so much.He counter-acts your whole goal) You should have reached out beyond style you would have had a big following. I show it to friends and they all love it!
      I hope that you can get it back on the air!


  4. This program is amazing and you talented models have shown the world that you can be a “ripped” model and a skilled carpenter with pride and common sense. We hope you guys are around for many more series of Built!


  5. Thats not shane duffy, shane is the one w the beard
