It’s not the first time a former model has graced our screens on reality TV, but we are LOSING it over these smarmy snaps of Big Brother Australia 2022‘s Josh Goudswaard.

Sure, he may work as a house painter these days, but the 32-year-old had quite the lucrative career as an international model way back when.

In fact, he’s worked for some pretty top tier brands, including Calvin Klein and Vogue Italia.

Now, after a deep dive into Josh’s Instagram, we’ve unearthed a number of pics from the Byron Bay local’s Zoolander days. And we’ve gotta say, the dude has an impressive Blue Steel look!

In one image, the housemate is sporting an all-red jacket, a look which he compares to a photo of Michael Jackson in the iconic Thriller ‘fit. Although, we’d say it’s giving off James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause vibes, rather than the King of Pop!

Josh also shared a litter of flicks from past photoshoots, including those for Esquire Magazine and Bell and Barnett.

In another post, the handsome reality star reminisced on being American Crew’s Face Off winner in 2010. The title was also previously held by Love Island Australia‘s Justin Lacko — and the pair even modelled together!

Aside from knowing Love Island‘s Justin, it turns out Josh knew fellow Big Brother hunk Anthony Drew (AKA Drew) before heading into the house.

As revealed in episode 182 of the So Dramatic! podcast, one supersleuth discovered their connection via Twitter, where one user shared a surprising snap of the duo.

“Gonna be so curious if Drew is going to remember Josh from the time they modelled together,” they penned.
