A man in Japan professing to be a model, in fact, gets most of his wages working as an instructor for an English conversational school.

James Huffington informs strangers on a regular basis that he makes a living from “male modelling”.

While not a total lie, it would be more truthful if he told people he acquires the overwhelming majority of his salary from simply speaking his native language.

“He gets 93% of his income from teaching English,” says Huffington’s friend.

“But he tells everyone he’s a model.”

Huffington usually shows people a professional photograph of himself, the last one being from a photoshoot back in 2015.

The 39-year-old was paid about 10,000 yen for 6 hours work.

He is now 43.

“To be fair, he’s not really even a teacher.”
