Matéo Girardet

It is with an immense pleasure that we are featuring the incredible Matéo Girardet at Stunning Men with photography by the great 

Tom Saint Clair

With winter already upon us, Matéo is here to warm up and melt your heart. With being the youngest model we have ever featured here, his incredible physique is all the more impressive.  Tom has certainly found yet another magnificent model.

Matéo is barely 17 years of age - he will be on January 24th 2018 - and is from Mulhouse, in Alsace, France. A gorgeous fresh new face in modelling, Matéo is represented by SC Models Management and we can predict a great future for this young man in this industry.

In spite of his young age, Matéo is a very down to earth guy, who knows what he wants and is totally dedicated to getting it.

If you think that he has the beautiful muscular physique of a swimmer, you would be right; Matéo is a competitive swimmer, holding French records and he is currently training for the next Olympic Games in 2020 and beyond.

Here's Matéo's interview in full

Matéo, welcome to Stunning Men and a big thank you for taking the time to do the interview. You are from Mulhouse, in the region of Alsace in France.
Yes, I am from Mulhouse and I am in the last year of the scientific 
Yes, I am from Mulhouse and I am in the last year of the scientific
baccalaureate (A-level) but I am also a semi-professional swimmer.

You are a very young model.
 I am 16 years old and i will turn 17 end of January next year.

First thing first ... how did you get into modelling?
 I started modelling last July having been spotted by Angel'Prod. Later I met Tom Saint Clair during a shooting test. There was a very good feeling between model and photographer. I then signed with SC Models, mother agency.

You are fairly new to modelling, but what do you like the most about it?
 What I enjoy is the fact I'm having a good time with the photographer when there is good cohesion. I like to be caught on a photo trying to get the little detail that will make the difference. I also like to see the final result of photos and the interpretation of the moment by the photographer.

How comfortable are you in showing off your physique in a shoot?
 Being in a swimsuit 3 to 4 hours per day at the pool, I am very comfortable in public when it comes to showing my body (he flashes his gorgeous smile), so i enjoy showing my body, causing a reaction ... or not.

You are looking incredible. How on earth did you get into such shape?

Having spent really a lot of time training in the water and spending many hours at the gym during the last 2 years (for swimming purpose), I managed to have quite an athletic body. Swimming needs a good balance between strength/power and muscle volume.

When did your passion for swimming start?
 I started swimming at the age of 4 just to be able not to drown (Mateo's face lights up with another smile), then I got the taste for competition. Eventually I managed to improve and became today's French Champion of the 100m Medley for my category and I have several French records on 50m and 100m breaststroke. 

Congratulations! What keeps you determined and driven to train?
 I have a very important goal; to qualify for the Olympic Games of Tokyo in 2020 or in 2024 in Paris and why not ... get a podium!

What sort of diet do you have?
 I eat naturally balanced and organic food in order to have the best nutrients, but i also supplement my diet with proteins.

If you had a cheat day, what would be your favourite food?
 I am very greedy, so i have a lot of favourite dishes (another cheeky smile). I'm keen on Asian food, American fast-food but also typical home-made French food, but I'm really excited to go to a renowned restaurant for is cuisine and treat myself!

Apart from swimming, what’s the best form of cardio for you?
 I like running because it's an easy-access sport that only requires good sneakers, but I'm more interested in goinbg to the gym.

Now a few quick fun questions if we may? Do you think you are a good date?
 Well, yes i think. I am both devoted and involved in my relationships.

Your favourite song or piece of music to play while training or running?
 I'm a fan of Timmy Trumpet for his electro sounds to get the cardio up. I also enjoy listening to old sounds such as 'Baby, i'm yours' by breakbot or 'Superstition' by Stevie Wonder, but I also like US Rap such as the music from Future or Kendrick Lamar.

Do you have any other passions besides swimming?
Even if it is contracditory to modelling, i really like the old mechanic. I already reassembled entirely a 1987 Vespa that I bought in parts.

What can’t you live without?
 Food is also a passion, i can't live without eaing ... fortunately there is swimming to eliminate all calories (LOL).

Could you finish these two sentences for us? You wouldn’t know, but I’m very good at …
 ... cleaning, doing laundry, ironing and cooking meals (Mateo gives us another huge smile)

The perfect future husband then! Now ... I’m just not very good at … 
 ... learning my math lessons (more smiles).

One last question Matéo, what is your big dream?
 my big dream would be to succeed in all I undertake and never lose my mind, I think anything is possible when you really believe in it and you give yourself every means to do it ...

Matéo, it has been a real pleasure to interview you! Thank you for your time and for being such good sport. All the best for the future!

A real pleasure to do it, thank you!
