Exclusive Interview With Model Scott Herman

With the help of his mother and an adorable dog named Bello, fitness model Scott Herman has just answered a few questions we've always been dying to ask him. If you've been searching for a video of a gorgeous man getting asked about gay-for-pay porn by his mother, all while holding the cutest animal ever on his lap… well, you've come to the right place.

In our interview, the former Real World: Brooklyn cast member also reveals who he'd go gay for, his thoughts on the lack of a straight equivalent of Manhunt and his strategy for making his way through gay clubs. And did I mention that he does a live booty-popping demonstration?

Though it may be a stretch to call this "exclusive"–given that it's already appeared on (at least) two other blogs and has received pages of comments on YouTube–we'd still like to thank Scott for taking the time to speak with us. Let us know what you think of the interview, and if you're a fan of this guy… be sure to vote for him on The Ten!

SCOTT: What's going on [Manhunt Daily] viewers? I've been asked to do an interview for you guys, and I have some help from my mom–she's gonna read the questions. So everyone say hi to my mom… and Bello wanted to join too, so Bello's gonna hang out while we answer the questions. So we're gonna get started with the first question. You ready, ma?

MOM: I'm ready! Okay, first question. How many hours a day do you spend working out? Do we even have enough extra hours in the day to get a body like yours?

SCOTT: Anyone has enough hours in the day to get a good workout in. I spend at most two hours in the gym a day, it depends on what I'm doing. Normally, it's about an hour and a half to an hour and forty five minutes, because I like to do two body parts and I usually like to incorporate abs as well. [To Bello] What are you dead?… Sometimes I go to the gym twice a day. I'll go in the morning for like forty-five minutes, and I'll go at night for like an hour and fifteen. And I'll split my routine up. I'll do abs in the morning and do two body parts at nighttime to give it a little bit of a split. But for the most part, I go to the gym in one shot sort of about an hour and a half, a hour and forty-five minutes.

MOM: Okay, good answer!… Are you jealous that gay men can hook-up so easily on sites like Manhunt? Then again, you probably have no problems finding ladies who want to, well… you know.

SCOTT: [Laughs] I'm not that jealous because I spend so much time in front of the computer trying to get work done that I don't have enough time. Like, if I'm on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, all that stuff, I'm just talking to people, networking, doing marketing and getting my videos out there. If I'm on the computer, I'm editing videos. I don't have time for that stuff. If anything like that was available in the straight community, I'd probably be spending too much time on that and not getting my stuff done. So I guess it's a good thing that doesn't exist. You guys can have your hook-up sites, I don't want any part of it! And it's not because my mom's here.

MOM: Maybe it is… no. Okay, third question. Every now and then, we see a comment from someone who doesn't believe your straight. Are you okay with people doubting your sexuality?

SCOTT: Yeah, I really don't care. I mean, the way I look at it is if I was gay should I get mad if people thought I was straight? No, who cares? If people want to doubt my sexuality, it doesn't matter. As long as they're looking at my videos and looking to exercise, they can think whatever they want. The main goal is to help the world and teach fitness to the world, not to care what they think whether I'm gay or straight.

MOM: I'd still love him if he was gay too.

SCOTT: You don't have a choice.

MOM: Manhunt Daily's readers have said some overtly sexual things as a reaction to your image. To be honest, we've even gone overboard with our own commentary as bloggers. What's your reaction to comments like, "he looks like he's ready to get it hard"?

SCOTT: [Laughs] What's your comment on that, mom?

MOM: I don't even want to know! Do I need to leave the room when you answer this?

SCOTT: I mean, people are gonna say what they want to say. If you're a straight male and you can attract a gay male, that's pretty flattering to be able to attract members of the same sex. I have a lot of gay friends, and they're very picky so it's flattering. I mean, the comments can be a little creepy, but it's flattering that I can attract someone of the same-sex, you know? It's one thing to attract a girl, but when you can attract both, I guess you're doing something right. You're a pretty good-looking guy, you're smart, intelligent, you have some good qualities. So yeah, it is what it is.

MOM: Okay. Bello, you comfortable?

SCOTT: He's going to fall asleep like this.

MOM: Okay, next question. We love that you're comfortable enough in your sexuality to make appearances at gay clubs. Has anyone ever tried to grope you or touch your butt? We're not gonna lie… we'd be tempted to.

SCOTT: Alright, there's this thing that happens at a gay club that's called the "Pass & Grab". When I walk through the crowd, I've learned… My one hand is in front of myself, my junk, and the other hand's blocking my ass because when you walk through the crowd… like, gay men will bump into you and try and grab your ass or penis. And you know it happens. You may have done it yourself if you've been to a gay club and you're a gay man. It happens. I've learned, cover the front [and] cover the back. If they try the bump and grab, all they're getting is a handful of my hand.

MOM: Okay, good information.

SCOTT: [To dog] Huh, Bello, is that what happens?

MOM: He bumps and grinds himself, I tell ya!… In your interview with Wicked Gay Blog, you mentioned that you'd never kiss a guy for your own personal enjoyment, but you'd do it if an acting role called for it. What do you think of so-called "gay-for-pay" porn stars who do a lot more than kissing on camera?

SCOTT: I think that's totally different. If you're doing gay-for-pay, there's a lot of insertion and stuff like that going on… penetration, all those fun words. That's a lot different from acting, that's porn. You know, acting is you playing a character. They're not gonna show that unless it's a movie like… I never saw Brokeback Mountain, but I guess there was stuff like that going on in there. That's a little different for me. I don't know if I'd want to be doing that, to get that far. But as far as insinuating that I am playing a gay character onscreen, that's one-hundred percent fine. Doing the gay-for-pay stuff all the time is a little different from acting and playing a gay character.

MOM: Did you like that answer, Bello?

SCOTT: Bello, would you do gay-for-pay?

MOM: He's not answering. Okay, moving on! You also mentioned in that interview that you don't like the phrase "no homo", and you're perfectly comfortable with admitting when another man is attractive. With that said, who would you choose as your co-star for a gay kissing scene on film? I mean, it's just acting after all…

SCOTT: Oh man… Well, I did just watch Fast and Furious last night. And I would say if I had to choose myself, it would be Fast and Furious 5, Vin Diesel's girlfriend's dead so maybe he's looking to experiment. I want to drive the Black Charger, so maybe we could come to an agreement. That would be cool.

MOM: It's all about the cars!

SCOTT: Bello likes the cars. So yeah, Vin Diesel [in] Fast And Furious 5, as my way to drive a black '68 Charger. [Raspberry in Bello's face]

MOM: We're absolutely baffled that you can pop your booty better than most gay men. Can you help us school these clueless guys and give us a live posing demonstration?

SCOTT: A live posing demonstration? Okay.

MOM: Bello needs to move.

SCOTT: Alright, Bello, you want to watch? Well, it's all in the hips, okay? And what you have to do is… when you're taking a photo, especially, you can't just stand there. You have to actually have some movement, and there has to be some hip-popping. And it's all about the arch in the back. So instead of standing there like this, you need to arch your back like that and lean forward a little bit. It's kind of like when you see a really prissy girl who has a big stick up her butt because she thinks she's cooler then everyone, and she's at the bar like, "Buy me a drink!" That's what you gotta think when you're taking these photos. You gotta stick your butt out like this, and you gotta pick a hip. You can't just stick your butt out… step one is sticking your butt, step two is picking a hip. Because if you don't pick a hip, then you're not creating any contour, you're not creating any curves. That's how you do it! And you also have to have a butt . If you don't have a butt, then you're hopeless. You can't do it. So go to the gym, do some squats and work on that tush.

MOM: I'm gonna sneeze.

SCOTT: You're gonna sneeze?

MOM: Nope, it went away.

SCOTT: Alright, guys, that ends the interview for [Manhunt Daily], and thank my mom for doing the questions and Bella for hanging out. See you guys later!

MOM: Bye!

  1. This man is gayer than every season of America’s Next Top Model and RuPaul’s Drag Race mixed together. He can attest his heterosexuality as much as he wants, but no straight man would ever, EVER do the things he just did, much less on camera… in front of his mother… with a lap dog. Ridiculous.

  2. i like his mom they gotta have a pretty damn good relationship for her to ask those questions lol she’d be a great Mother-in -law 😉

  3. I think Scott is just very comfortable with himself and the fact that his Mom ask the question just go 2 show that he is very down 2 earth and does not get caught up N what others might think ……….

  4. What an awesome guy. Everytime I see something with him, my respect for him grows. I believe he is straight. Why should we doubt him? Just because he is open and comfortable does not make him gay.

  5. His mom is adorable. I’m extremely excited that he’s straight, our community needs more allies, especially straight men. It would be great if we could get more allies like Scott without them getting crap from both straights and gays about being a closeted homo. Doesn’t really help to destroy ourselves from the inside.

  6. Simply gorgeous and hot. Not EVERY stud is going to be gay. For God’s sake I’d much rather have Scott and others like him that is comfortable and happy with himself in our community as opposed to a straight guy than a hater so give him a break! He’s awesome regardless of being straight.

  7. You know I had this huge wall of text about thinking Scott was gay but I deleted it.
    He’s such a fucking great guy that I hope hope hope he isn’t gay ten years from now just so the fantasy of some guy who isn’t gay could be this comfortable in their own skin.

  8. I’ve been voting for him the last few weeks but he never gets higher than #3 on the ten, If he showed a full frontal nude pic of himself I’m sure he could rach the top spot on the Ten

  9. that’s like the cutest thing ever.
    his mom asking him intimate questions like that in front of the camera and him being so relaxed and cool about it. loved it

  10. @Alex
    Interesting that you bring that up because he’s next on our list. He just agreed to do an interview with us. Keep an eye out for that.

  11. its funny i think this guy its cutter as hell but in every question about his sexualitty i can swear by the looks in his eyes, the way he dont look at the camera when hes asked… that he is gay as hell… but anyway i love him…

  12. Two thoughts: one, I don’t care what he is just like he would not cate what I am! I want to go to the bar with him so HD can intro me to all that hit in him, LOL. Second, Scott remeber even is straight UNTIL you get it all hot and wet!
