It doesn't seem that he's being purposely provocative. Even as he says it, dozens of barely concealed envious male gazes burn the back of his neck (not to mention female gazes of a different sort).You can see the knee-jerk defense mechanism in the men's expressions, the psychological wheels turning: So goes the inner testosterone-fueled monologue that men cannot help but recite.These are the models, the actors, and the athletes that maintain and embody Hollywood's well-worn stereotypes. The women are tightly wrapped in spandex, often with full cat-eye makeup even in the midst of a sweaty jog. At some point in the afternoon, a man emerges from the stairwell with a gym bag over his shoulder.If any one of these people walked into a bar in a small midwestern town, their looks would likely cause a stir. One by one, the peacocking alpha males around him begin to wither into betas.Those who say that there are no impossible beauty standards for men have never met Instagram phenomenon Brock O'Hurn.It's another day at a well-known, overpriced West Hollywood gym.The floor is swarming with fitness junkies who circle one another, grunting and pouting like sinewy fish in a bowl of floor-to-ceiling mirrors.
Describing him without succumbing to hyperbole is difficult, so perhaps it is best not to try.These animalistic tendencies, as much as everyone tries to be civilized, seem to still exist, and the men here embrace them with varying degrees of honesty. He'll wax happily about positivity, empowerment, leaving every place and person better than he found it, and the like. This, of course, only makes it worse for those he threatens with his very existence.If he decided to assert his dominance in this place, none could challenge him. His kindness seems suspicious in Hollywood, a town populated by hustlers, users, and manipulators.I tried doing those for a while, and it just wasn't me.What I really wanted to focus on was acting, developing my brand, etc. All of it started with social media." As Instagram grows, so does Brock's loyal following.
