Gay Porn Model Jesse Blum Becomes Reality Star On E!’s “Escape Club”

jesse-blum-gay-porn-gay-hooplaA former gay porn model known as “Damon” to fans of hardcore college fraternity fetish site Fratmen (nsfw) makes his reality television debut this week in E!’s Escape Club, a Big Brother ripoff that substitutes an exotic island in place of an actual house.

The incredibly sexy 28-year-old began his porn career back in 2006 with a softcore premiere at Fratmen, and has worked as an underwear model under the name “Jesse Blum” ever since. According to gay porn blog Men of Porn, Blum also performs for private audiences on live cam site Flirt 4 Free, and most recently filmed another softcore video for a fairly new site called Gay Hoopla (nsfw).

malefitnessmodel-jesse3According to E!’s “meet the cast” page for Escape Club, Blum is “a nursing assistant who is tired of cleaning bedpans, working 80 hours a week and taking care of sick people.” It also notes that he’s “now known more as a web-cam model than health care provider.”

Perhaps the most refreshing thing to come out of Blum’s gay porn past, which gained traction on social media after the show’s Sunday premiere, is that Blum has been open and honest about his previous work. “Yes I have been nude and done all of that online,” he tells one fan on Twitter. “Not ashamed but want the world to know I’m more then [sic] just a cam model.”

His frank acknowledgment is a major departure from the usual responses former gay porn models like to give in these situations — in the past, we’ve seen them ignore it, condemn it, and straight-up pretend that it never happened.

It doesn’t seem like Blum intended to hide his previous work, as he didn’t change his name or create a new moniker for E!. It wouldn’t be surprising if E! actually encouraged him to do this — we’re assuming someone at the network at least Googled this dude’s name before casting him and perhaps considered his story a boost for ratings.

Below, watch Jesse argue with a woman about a suitcase on Escape Club, and check out some of his greatest underwear modeling shots:

      It is a sad time for the gay community. Str8 men are becoming so much more handsome, more hot than gay men. And, a little bit more stupid.

      When did we switch from “porn star” to “porn model”? I guess “stars” have sex and “models” just jackoff?
