Brian Kehoe (born January 23, 1982)[citation needed] is an American male fashion model and former reality television show participant on Oxygen's program The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency.

Early life[edit]

Kehoe was born in Reno, Nevada. He attended Bishop Manogue Catholic High School, and the University of Nevada, Reno. In high school, along with being voted homecoming king, he was victorious in two baseball state championships ('99, '00) as well as one state championship in football ('00).[1] Kehoe was enrolled at the University of Nevada from Fall 2002 - Fall 2006, where in the middle of the semester had to discontinue classes because of scheduling conflicts with the taping of the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. In college he was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity.[2]

Modeling career[edit]

Kehoe began his modeling career at IMTA (International Models & Talent Association) in January 2001, winning Runner Up for Male Model of the Year. But placing 1st in events such as Swimwear and Ready For My Closeup. Kehoe signed with Click Models, and LA Models Runway Division from his exposure at IMTA. Peter Kluge, talent manager, also signed Kehoe as one of his new actors. One of his first castings was for the Abercrombie & Fitch Spring/Summer 2001 catalog, which he was on hold for, but did not quite book. Being homesick, Kehoe returned home to Reno in January 2002.[1][3]

From 2006 - 2011, Kehoe modeled for various brands, some of them being 2-Xist, Adidas, Joe's Jeans, and Ed Hardy.

In 2008, at a party, Kehoe met an associate of talent manager Felicia Sager, who brought him in for a meeting which led to auditions for television shows in the likes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, Beverly Hills 90210, Hannah Montana, (then pilot) Vampire Diaries, and Ashton Kutcher's pilot which failed after only a few episodes, Beautiful Life.

In 2008, Kehoe could also be seen in a humorous commercial for gossip website TMZ's TV show in which a number of people thank TMZ for teaching them unethical behavior such as not following the rules and how to take a good mugshot. Kehoe can be seen saying, "Thanks to TMZ, I learned that dating a celebrity is the only way I'll be a celebrity!"

Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency[edit]

In 2006, Kehoe traveled to Los Angeles to attend an open call audition for The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency during the show's taping of its second season. He was selected to join the agency and within a few weeks moved to the Los Angeles area.[3]

In season two, Kehoe was chosen to participate in the Catalina Island photo shoot for 2(x)ist.[4]

In season three, Kehoe's roommate Grant Whitney Harvey joined the agency. Kehoe was hired to do photo shoots for Go Softwear and Dragonfly by Edward Dada. During the public demonstration by the agency models in support of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Kehoe was one of the models that removed his clothing as part of PETA's "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign. At season's end, Kehoe was chosen by Janice Dickinson as one of her top models that would travel with her to Miami to test the viability of opening a Miami branch of the agency. In Miami, Kehoe joined the other models in doing a runway show for Ed Hardy intimates and men's underwear. In season 4, Kehoe lived in the model house only for a short time before being kicked out by Janice for saying an offensive comment to another model. After multiple attempts at apologizing, Janice would not allow Kehoe to be one of her models. In a particular episode in season 4, Kehoe gets word that Janice may show some leniency towards him if he shows up to the job some of the models were working that day which happened to be 70 miles outside of the Los Angeles city limits. Within minutes of Kehoe's arrival, Janice makes it very clear he is not wanted and kicks him off the set where he is forced to hitch hike back to Hollywood. Kehoe can be seen in a large portion of the re-union special (finale episode), which is dedicated to his abstract behavior.[5]
