Jeremy Meeks Offered Modeling Contract

Though he is currently behind bars facing 11 felon charges for crimes ranging from gun possession to parole violations, viral Internet sensation Jeremy Meeks is seeking to reap the benefits of his well-received face. He was recently offered a modeling contract with Los Angeles-based Blaze Models.

According to TMZ, the 30-year-old criminal has his ex-porn star agent, Gina Rodriguez, to thank. Rodriguez, who is quite the experienced entertainment manager, oversees clients including "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, Farrah Abraham and, most recently, Donald Sterling's much talked about ex-girlfriend, V. Stiviano.

While this certainly may serve as some positive news once he is released from the San Joaquin County Jail, where he currently resides, Meeks first needs an exit plan as he is being held at $1.1 million in bail.

"I'm not exactly sure why it's so much money," Rodriguez told Fox News. "We're trying to secure him some of these deals so that when he gets out, it can change his life, literally."

The modeling agency said that because the "gangster look" is so "hot right now," Meeks could make between $15,000 and $30,000 a month as a professional model.
