Prison Bae 2.0 Lands A Modeling Contract, Just Like Jeremy Meeks

From the mug shot to head shot.

Jeremy Meeks, beware! There’s a new prison bae that’s recently scored a modeling contract courtesy of his viral mugshot.

Mekhi Alante Lucky lit social media ablaze after social media caught wind of his mugshot last year. Then 20-years-old, Lucky was arrested for speeding and driving a stolen vehicle in April 2016 and then again for charges including assault, alleged breaking and entering and resisting an officer and two misdemeanor parole violations in December. When his most recent mugshot hit the ‘net, Lucky’s chiseled face and difference in eye color (he has one brown eye and one blue eye) propelled him into Internet superstardom.

After garnering a 21,000 followers on Instagram, the social media sensation landed a modeling contract with Atlanta-based St. Claire Modeling.
