The 'Damn, Daniel' Kid Apparently Rejected Modeling Offers For This Reason

by Taylor Ortega

Anyone with eyes can tell the “Damn, Daniel” meme star Daniel Lara is FOYN AF, but that doesn't mean he has plans to make a career off his looks.

According to Teen Vogue via Hollywood Life, Lara's classmate Skylar Keefe said his pal rejected several modeling contracts to pursue a college swimming scholarship.

Keefe shared,

Daniel is pretty modest about everything that has happened since the video went viral.

Daniel is riding the wave of Internet fame, which included a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where the host awarded him a lifetime supply of Vans.

Not all of us are meant to be models, but sometimes, it just feels nice to be asked.
