Check Out The #1 Most Voted-For Model In Next’s Modeling Competition

There are many young faces vying to be the next Gisele, Kate, or Naomi, but it seems that U.K. retailer Next has the unlikeliest contender. Roland B. is the leading entrant for the Next Model 2011 competition on the site, beating out more than 4,500 other submissions. Despite his very-in platinum blonde crop and rather captivating smile, Roland is pretty much an untraditional choice. Blame Reddit and Football365: A post on the site today channeled thousands of votes over to and launched Roland to the #1 spot. Will this be one of those triumphant-gay-high-school-boy-as-Prom-Queen scenarios or will Next pull his spot (we hope it's the former)?
