Jamie Ungaro, Barbizon of Akron Grad, Wins Title of "Mr. Romance"

We are head over heels (literally) for the very handsome Jamie Ungaro who recently won the honor of being pictured on the cover of a romance novel and the grand title of, “Mr. Romance 2010”! That’s right this handsome lad, who got his start right here at Barbizon of Akron, and who is listed with Pro-Model and Talent, entered a Mr. Romance contest down in Ohio’s state capital Columbus, after major urging from a family friend. Jamie underwent 4 full days of rehearsing and photoshoots at the Hyatt Regency at the annually held Romantic Times Booklovers Convention that features not only the audition/competition process but days full of festive parties as well. In the end, and after the judging was complete Jamie won “Reader's Choice”, “Contestant's Choice” and “Mr. Romance”, and per Jamie, he believes that he is the first guy who has ever won all three trophies in the competition's history! WOO HOO! Once the book that Jamie will appear on is chosen, this lucky and good-looking guy will be whisked off to New York City for a Dorchester Publishing cover photo shoot and book trailer shoot! THEN next year… he will be flown out to Los Angeles where he will present awards! What an awesome title and great way to make his first mark in the biz! Want more information?
