Bel Ami vs. Big Brother
Filip Trojovsky, better known as Bel Ami’s adorable and cuddly powerbottom Tommy Hansen, also currently a contestant on the Czech Republic version of Big Brother, fessed up to his porn career live on the show last night, citing the old “I was young and needed the money” excuse. Although he said doing porn was a bad thing, it was a brave move on Filip’s part, no doubt. But he probably was just preempting the inevitable; he’s graced the cover of Bel Ami’s Greek Holiday, the upcoming Lucas In Love as well as the Feb, 2005 issue of Freshmen.)
Very quickly after, the following message appeared on BelAmi.com: “George Duroy is close to having a heart attack! … The tabloids are starting to get wind of this story and the publicity surrounding Tommy is bound to hurt the models with whom he shot episodes … George and many of the other models tried to talk Tommy out of appearing on this show … Tommy brushed off all these conversations … [replying] ‘That’s their problem’.”
I’m still scratching my head as to why Duroy would be freaking that one of his biggest stars is on one of the highest-rated TV shows in the Czech Republic.
According to his Profil on the show’s site, (thanks to a handy online Czech-to-English translator) Mr. Trojovsky is 20, from Brno, is single and loves Robbie Williams. His favorite show is “Jackass”, his favorite film is “Pulp Fiction”. His stigma is fish and his nickname is three (the translator might have gotten that last part wrong.
Shockingly, Tommy/Filip made no mention of any of this during our in-depth conversation a few months ago at the COLT/Bel Ami “Boys 2 Men” party. (That conversation consisting of me saying, “May I take your picture?” and him saying, “OK”.)
Porn’s not the only skeleton in the lad’s closet: this revealing thread on Just Us Boys shows that he’s worn quite a few hats in his day, from pugilist to male modeling (as in model-model, not model as a euphemism for being porn star).
How long until he’s voted off? Although he’s doing pretty well rating-wise, I’d bet he ends up on the chopping block pretty damn soon, if not for the scandalous past but for the sort of ubergay flat-ironed coif he’s sporting lately. Stay tuned …
