“I believe if you make it in Atlanta, you can make it anywhere,” says model Chris Anthony, 35, who originally hails from Detroit.
Anthony is a man who truly knows his way around a kitchen. “I can cook,” he tells us. “I was raised in a restaurant. My specialty is grilled blackened salmon with a hint of lime served over steamed wild rice with sautéed asparagus. I like to wash all that down with fresh mango juice."
“To impress a woman, I would simply present the real me,” says Anthony. “That’s the only way I’d want to impress her.” Honesty counts!
Anthony feels he’s an all around great guy, and for good reason. “What makes me the perfect catch is my ability to acknowledge my imperfections with a smile, my determination to be the best man I can be, and my commitment to monogamy,” he says.
“I’m excited by a woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it,” Anthony shares. “A woman who’ll stick by my side through sunshine and storms and a woman who derives great pleasure in seeing me happy.”
“On a typical Friday night, you can catch me leaving the gym and heading home,” Anthony says. “But, now, Saturday night is a different story. No tellin’ what you might see!”

Anthony is so cool he made up his own word for how he’d describe himself: “Funtaneous.” We love it!
When Anthony has some down time, the Florida coast begins to call him. “South Beach!” he says. “The energy and the beauty of the place really do it for me. I love it there.”

“My idea of a perfect date would start off with a couples massage,” he says. “Then I would present her with a gift box. When she opens the box, she’d find an outrageously oversized dress. I’d offer to accompany her to return it right then and there. When we arrive back at the dress shop, the incredible Stewart Michaels would be waiting to do her hair and makeup. I’d leave her and rush off to the next location. Once fully done up, she’d be driven via car service to a restaurant I had closed down for the evening so we could be alone. This would be the perfect time for me to show off my culinary and bartending skills.”

“Believe it or not, I was always teased because I was a straight-A student,” says Anthony. “My mother enrolled me into a private school. I was the tall, skinny kid with curly hair and glasses. Those experiences definitely influenced the man I’ve become today.”

“I believe it’s difficult for people to love themselves when they don’t recognize/realize there’s only one person like them on this planet,” says Anthony. “They don’t understand that while here, they should live to laugh and love. They don’t believe there’s a Creator up above who loves them unconditionally.”

“I am not ashamed to say I have a big heart,” admits. Anthony. “My mom was, and is, my example. Giving is a gift that resides within the heart. Sometimes people mistake my kindness for weakness, but that doesn’t stress me, because people like that cut their own blessings short.”

“The bravest (or craziest) thing I’ve ever done is tussle with robbers when I used to work retail,” says Anthony. “My goal was simply to protect all my female coworkers. Since I have a family filled with women, I am a protector of women by nature and nurture.”

“When I feel like giving up, I think about how far I’ve come and that thought inspires me to keep going,” says Anthony. “Most people I know aren’t aware of my trials because I focus more on solutions than problems. You’ve gotta feed what you want to grow. Last, but not least, I’m driven to rectify any mistakes I may have made.”
