Clothing Optional: Nic Pletts at Next Model Management

By Joseph Kocharian

For the latest instalment in our Clothing Optional column, we have South African model Nicholas Pletts from Next Model Management. He talks about being insanely close to his twin brother (also a model) and what he is always getting told off for…


Name: Nicholas Pletts

From: South Africa

Agency: Next Model Management

Starsign: Taurus. Makes me stubborn!

What makes you angry? No sleep, no food.

What’s your favourite food? Would be a BBQ.

What can you not live without?  My twin brother, we’re insanely close! (aww, how cute boys)

What are you reading about at the moment?  I’ve just finished the Monk that Sold his Ferrari. It’s about a guy who used to be a lawyer in NYC. He had a heart attack so he moved to India to learn the meaning of life, happiness and what real fulfilment was, as opposed to to material fulfilment. My mum recommended it to me.

Where were you discovered? At Mias’ 21st birthday party (A fellow male model… interview with him coming soon!).

What would you do if you weren’t a model? I finished my financial accountant degree. I was going to be a chartered accountant, that was the goal, I thought I was going to be in a suit and have a briefcase. It’s funny where life takes you…  Here I am!

Favourite thing about the job?  Travelling and meeting new people and experiencing different cultures.

What’s the worst thing about modelling? Being unsettled and never knowing where you will be unpacking.

What are you always being told off for? Well…(laughs)… I’m always being told to stop taking life so seriously and enjoy life a bit more.
