The Internet has converted yet another person into insta-success. A new internet sensation was born after a Singapore model (50-year-old guy) decided to take his photos online. Chuando Tan is a 51-year-old model who lives and works in Singapore. Not long after media outlets shared his story with the public, his Instagram profile literally exploded, netting him more than 550,000 followers so far.
His modeling career began when he was just a teenager, 15 years old. Tan discovered his second professional love in 1966, realizing he has a talent for photography. After years of hard work, he managed to collaborate with some of the biggest names in fashion, with the magazine Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.
“You are what you eat,” said the 51-year-old model. “You wouldn’t want to look like a hamburger, right? I would rather look like a mean, lean chicken breast,” Chuando added.

Chuando’s workout routine is to hit the gym at least 3-5 times a week, for a maximum hour or so. He often receives strange messages and request, with one of them being “a photo of his toes.” Other requests were trying to convince him into a stripper career, “Probably I’ll consider it, when I’m 80. Save the best for last.”
Not always everybody seems to appreciate his youthful looks. He often gets called out for not behaving like a 50-year-old, “They said, ‘please stop it. Don’t do this, you’re 50 years old’, like, wow, so is there like a standard behavior that I’m supposed to follow? Send it to me, then I take a look. People are like that. We are more comfortable when everybody is the same, right?
“As long as you’re good to your parents, people that you care for, people around you, and to whoever your God is, that’s good enough. You’re so small, how are you going to please the whole world?” – he said in an interview for the Straits Times.
