SAM MALEKOUT HAS ALWAYS ENJOYED THE TASTE OF SUCCULENT, JUICY, FRESH STRAWBERRIES RIGHT FROM A YOUNG AGE AND LOVES NOTHING MORE THAN COVERING HIMSELF WITH THEM. NOT TO MENTION THE COMBINATION OF RICH, CREAMY, THICK CUSTARD TRIFLE. FOR A DAY OR SO HE COULD SMELL AND TASTE THE TRICKLE AROUND HIS LIPS. NOW, HE ENJOYS IT BEST WHEN HE HAS SOMEONE TO THROW AND SPREAD IT ALL OVER HIM.
A few years ago Samuel Darayus Malekout went to a photographer requesting to have a small portfolio done. Nothing special. Just making sure he had some up-to-date pictures in hand. He liked the experience so much, that he decided to do something with it, realizing there might be a skill or talent worth pursuing. In 2007 he started out as a commercial/lifestyle model and he is doing this to present day. But recently he has also started to combine this with more fitness, underwear and physique modeling work. “When I look back to my life as a teenager, I was a bit of a geek and I would never have had the confidence or self-assurance to do modeling. I am grateful so far in my career to have worked with some inspirational and motivational people, who have assisted me when I had doubts and encouraged me when they felt I had potential.”
Sam Malekout is 28 years old and from British/Iranian origin. When he was 10 years old he started practicing track & field athletics, which he did for 5 years. After having stopped 7 years, Sam picked his training up at age 21, and has been doing it ever since. “In some way the athletics is similar to modeling – setting yourself new goals, staying competitive, reflecting back on what you have done before and on what there is to do.” Sam can often be found in the gym as well. He believes gym is at the heart of everything he does, and it is how he combines both interests. “I use it for muscle-building, conditioning, toning, general fitness and of course vanity ☺.”
Serious is his sports as he is, Sam Malekout eats a balanced and varied diet, which comprises mainly of rice, chicken, nuts, fish, vegetables and fresh fruit. But Sam doesn’t shy away from a healthy dose of jelly trifle every now and than. His sweet tooth character unexpectedly popped up while working recently with photographer Dean Stockings. Dean recalls: “Sam was so turned on by the strawberries and trifle, he couldn’t stop himself from smothering the luscious, thick custard, juicy strawberries and tasty trifle all over his body.” Seeing how the drops of cram and strawberry juice are rolling down Sam’s torso we can hardly imagine how difficult it must have been for Dean to keep shooting, but true professional as he is, that is exactly what he did.
Samuel Malekout is a funny one. Fanatic sports and a passion for sweet custard. It seems un unlikely combination. But not for Sam. Not for a guy who, besides socializing with friends, playing some occasional team sports and enjoying discovering new restaurants, also engages in a little personal study of space and life beyond earth and recently started to learn Dutch. Simply because he in interested by the small country and wishes to visit it one day in the future. Sam keeps himself busy with many interests and is always curious to try new things. Being single that stretches even in his personal life. “I don’t really have a type but if you are into athletics and fashion like me (unusual combination, I know) give me a shout. I wouldn’t turn down a good offer ☺.” –BM-
