I remember the first time i first saw this next man crash, it was 6am and I had just switched to one of my favorite channels BET. Suddenly on camera was the sexiest man I had ever seen, everything i had visualized my man to be was now saying good morning and welcoming me to this brand new day. In that moment I knew that I had to find out who and where he had come from. Take a look and see why he made my man crush list.
