But even bleary-eyed, Brock O'Hurn is still 6'7", 250 pounds, tan, muscular, blue-eyed, with a light-brown, tousled mane that, when not grazing his often shirtless chest, sits in a perfectly messy topknot. Let's go." As we walk toward the pier, Brock wonders, again, if anyone's going to come. "And the weather...""We'll just start taking pictures of you," says Diogo, referring to himself and Buzz Feed's photographer, who's coming along for the afternoon. " Her mom, Chris, takes a photo of her with Brock, but it's not until she walks away that he takes his shirt off. As the crowd on the pier grows, more and more people who are just walking by want to know who the shirtless man posing for pictures is. Maybe it's the man bun, maybe it's the eyes, maybe it's the chiseled physique, maybe it's the selfies where his pants are juuuuuuust a little too low, or the one of him in a cowboy hat at the Stagecoach Music Festival or the goofy one of him in American flag shorts (still shirtless), or him relaxing by a pool, or reading a book (shirtless, hair in man bun)."It'll be like ants on food."The first sign that things will probably be fine is when we approach the pier from the side, and as we walk past the public bathrooms, two blonde women who turn out to be mother and daughter see him and approach cautiously yet excitedly. Maybe it's the other people who show up in his photos — fist-bumping his baby nephew, having fun with his "boys," a loose crew of similarly hot friends he's picked up in his five or so months in L. — who all seem carefully chosen to reflect The Real Brock: a happy, wholesome, sexy dude just living his best life in Los Angeles.Is there a singles website that has active participants for us that have realized the fraud of the church and are looking for friends and partners with common ground?Here on LAM it appears as folks come and go quickly without a real singles get together effort.
His friend, a 32-year-old Brazilian fashion designer and photographer named Diogo Vinhais, who takes some of the photos on Brock's Instagram, is reassuring. "An older woman walks by and yells, "Are you married? "But Maddy asked if he was going to be wearing a shirt."A group of three young women run up to Brock.
"Dude, they'll definitely show," he says, offering Brock half of his spinach feta wrap. There's 36-year-old Trista Chen, who drove in from Alhambra with her friend, who says she's been following Brock on Instagram for a month. "I grew up in Asia — when we were teenagers we read a lot of romance novels. They drove two hours from Oceanside, California, near San Diego, leaving their husbands at home. The whole time we were driving up here, I was like, what's he gonna be like? "He's Instagram famous but he's about to become, like, really famous."I'm momentarily distracted by what I see out of the corner of my eye: Brock lifting up a woman who looks well into grandmother age, and kissing her on the cheek.
Brock stayed up late the night before, and he looks bleary-eyed. Now, he takes a sip of a huge iced coffee and says, "OK. He looks like that." She fans herself theatrically. "We love him," says 20-year-old Kayla Cook."He's gorgeous," says her friend, 21-year-old Leeza Lloyd."It's his hair," says the third woman, Chelsea White, 20. And now it's like, you're like, real."Brock takes pictures, sometimes more than one, with everyone. He picks up a 13-year-old boy named Austin for a picture and Austin asks how he takes care of his hair, and Brock tells him he washes it three times a week. She turns out to be 73-year-old Evangelina Garcia, who speaks only Spanish, but a woman with her translates for me: "She just saw him on the pier and said, 'What a beautiful man.'" In a world where "Instagram famous" and "really famous" are increasingly the same, Brock O'Hurn is riding some kind of wave.
