If you follow us on social media (if you aren’t, do that right now on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) you’ll know that we enjoy running contests and giveaways with the bluNation® family. Through April and May we ran an epic contest on Twitter, with the prize being a trip to LA, and a once-in-a-lifetime photoshoot with a world-famous photographer. All you had to do was tweet us what your dream photoshoot would be that showed off your individuality and uniqueness through a photo. As always, you guys didn’t disappoint!
So without further ado, meet the winner our #JustMeAndblu contest – James!
Meet our #JustMeAndblu Winner, James:
James didn’t want anything too crazy, he just wanted to be shot in a pool of Jello. What makes this so unique? James loves Jello. We know this, because he told us he eats four pounds of it a day.
Yes, you heard that right. Four pounds. Every day.
When our celebrity photographer Michel Comte found out about this, well…he was fascinated. He knew that with James’ big personality and just a little bit of magic, he could make something really special and completely true to who James is.
We were lucky enough to spend the day getting to know James, crushing conversation while vaping Cherry Crush (his favorite flavor). He’s an animal lover, an avid sports fan, and believes that while we may not always know life’s ultimate plan, all the puzzle pieces are there for us to put together. We just need the passion to do so.
So James, tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a 26 year old bachelor who lives near Tampa, Florida. I’m the proud daddy of a rescue mini dachshund, his name is Buddy. He means the world to me! My lifestyle is simple. Praise God, workout daily take care of Buddy and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
Tell us a little bit about your family. What do you like to do together?
When my grandparents visit we do the chicken dance before dinner.
What’s your greatest accomplishment?
I helped build a church and a school in the Dominican Republic.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Pitcher for the New York Yankees!
What were you looking forward to the most about shooting with Michel?
His personality and learning about what motivates him!
