Ridiculously photogenic Arab? “Hey Girl: Arab Edition?” Someone needs to come up with an Internet meme for Omar Borkan Al Gala, who was revealed as one of the three men deported from Saudi Arabia for being just too darn good looking.
We’re sure you remember the news, but, in case you don’t, here’s a primer: A few weeks ago, three men were ejected from an annual culture festival in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh for being too handsome.
“A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds [that] they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” said a news service, adding, “the festival’s management took urgent measures to deport the three to Abu Dhabi.”
The men’s identities were not revealed at the time, but one blog managed to track at least one of them down. He is Omar Borkan Al Gala, and, in addition to being ridiculously good looking, he gets extra swoon points for being a fashion photographer, actor, and poet based out of Dubai.
As if all of that wasn’t threatening enough, his Facebook page is filled with quotes like: “If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.”
Anyway, his Facebook page looks like a professional photography porfolio, with tons of ridiculously good looking selfies, some of which just make him seem like a normal, ridiculously good looking dude.
Others, like this one, make him look like the Prince of Persia:
