His friend, a 32-year-old Brazilian fashion designer and photographer named Diogo Vinhais, who takes some of the photos on Brock's Instagram, is reassuring. "An older woman walks by and yells, "Are you married? "But Maddy asked if he was going to be wearing a shirt."A group of three young women run up to Brock.
But even bleary-eyed, Brock O'Hurn is still 6'7", 250 pounds, tan, muscular, blue-eyed, with a light-brown, tousled mane that, when not grazing his often shirtless chest, sits in a perfectly messy topknot. Let's go." As we walk toward the pier, Brock wonders, again, if anyone's going to come. "And the weather...""We'll just start taking pictures of you," says Diogo, referring to himself and Buzz Feed's photographer, who's coming along for the afternoon. " Her mom, Chris, takes a photo of her with Brock, but it's not until she walks away that he takes his shirt off. As the crowd on the pier grows, more and more people who are just walking by want to know who the shirtless man posing for pictures is. Maybe it's the man bun, maybe it's the eyes, maybe it's the chiseled physique, maybe it's the selfies where his pants are juuuuuuust a little too low, or the one of him in a cowboy hat at the Stagecoach Music Festival or the goofy one of him in American flag shorts (still shirtless), or him relaxing by a pool, or reading a book (shirtless, hair in man bun).
Paul Pelosi won't be giving interviews because "he's a private person, not involved in political life," said Jennifer Crider, a spokeswoman for the speaker-to-be. Pelosi's investments are separate from hers, and they have separate careers." But the couple's net worth, most of it linked to Paul Pelosi's investments, has made the legislator the ninth-richest person in the 435-member House.
The family money, along with the many business and social connections Paul Pelosi has brought to their 43-year marriage, gave Nancy Pelosi the financial independence she needed to spend long hours doing unpaid Democratic Party business in the 1970s and 1980s.
"It'll be like ants on food."The first sign that things will probably be fine is when we approach the pier from the side, and as we walk past the public bathrooms, two blonde women who turn out to be mother and daughter see him and approach cautiously yet excitedly. Maybe it's the other people who show up in his photos — fist-bumping his baby nephew, having fun with his "boys," a loose crew of similarly hot friends he's picked up in his five or so months in L. — who all seem carefully chosen to reflect The Real Brock: a happy, wholesome, sexy dude just living his best life in Los Angeles.
"We're here from Ohio," says the daughter, 21-year-old Liz Hriczo. The only women in his pictures are his mom, his sisters, and the occasional longtime female friend.
