(Newser) – He might have been the hottest guy at Wasilla High, but Palin babydaddy Levi Johnston doesn’t do it for modeling agencies, reps tell Vanity Fair. A sampling of their reactions to the idea:

  • New York Model Management: “I have no idea who he is or what he looks like. I wish I knew more about who that is, but my computers are down.”

  • Click Models: “We didn’t reach out to him. I guess he’s interested, but we weren’t.”
  • DNA Model Management: “No one has reached out to him. He’s a good-looking guy, but not really a model type. No one would see him on the runway. He was ill-at-ease on Tyra Banks and I can’t see that changing drastically.”
  • Next Models: “No. If you hear him interviewed, he’s not that bright. Even if he were amazing looking, he still comes off as a bit of a lug. Doesn’t have the elegance.”
