Sexiest Stallion: Tyson Beckford

The ever sexiest black male model in the century - Tyson Beckford.
Tyson Craig Beckford was born on December 19, 1970
He has a Jamaican father of Panamanian descent and a Chinese Jamaican mother.

He grew up in Rochester, New York and attended Bay Trail Middle School in nearby Penfield, New York. He then graduated from Pittsford Mendon High School in the affluent suburb of Pittsford as a participant in the Urban-Suburban Program, a busing program designed to give educational opportunities to urban youth in the city's surrounding suburban school districts.

Beckford was a member of his high school football and track teams. He is also the cousin of Los Angeles Lakers' forward Ron Artest. In 1992, he was recruited to hip hop magazine The Source by a talent scout, Jeff Jones, who has been credited with 'discovering' Beckford in New York City.

In 1993, Beckford was recruited by Ralph Lauren
as the front model for the company's Polo line of male sportswear.

Beckford was named "Man of the Year" in 1995
by the cable television music channel VH1
& one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" by People magazine.

He is represented by Nous Model Management in Los Angeles, California,
and Independent Models in London, England.
He was ranked at #38 on VH1's 40 Hottest Hotties of the '90s.

In 2003, he appeared on the ABC network's
celebrity reality game show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

In September 2008, he supported the National RESPECT! Campaign
against domestic violence, recording a voice message for the Giverespect.org Web site,
speaking about the importance of respect for others.

Beckford is currently co-hosting the modeling contest Make Me a Supermodel
on the television channel Bravo with fellow supermodel Niki Taylor.
The show has chosen Nicole Trunfio to join Beckford as a mentor
to the model contestants for the show's upcoming second season.
New judges include designer Catherine Malandrino,
model Jenny Shimizu, photographer Perou and model scout Marlon.

Beckford judged and mentored the contestants of the first few episodes
of the Australian version of Make Me a Supermodel,
with model and former Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins.
On June 7, 2005,
Beckford was injured following a car accident in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Shortly before 5:00am,
he lost control of his 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 and struck a utility pole.
The vehicle caught fire immediately after the collision,
but Beckford was able to pull himself out
before the red pick-up became fully engulfed in flames.
He was taken to the Jersey City Medical Center
and hospitalized for head trauma and cuts.
During an interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show,
Tyson claimed the accident had a profound effect on his spirituality.
Beckford has been a resident
of the New Jersey communities of Edgewater and West New York.

Beckford has a 10-year-old son, Jordan,
