We all have our favourites on Instagram. But here are a few local and international good-lookers to add to the list.
And it is not just about their good looks (although a large part of it is, admittedly).
While Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse is often portrayed by the media as an astute and hardworking businessman, we have our very own Nat Ho who similar owns a food business too.
The Insta-hotties whom we are about to show you are not just hunks, find out how they came to be who they are, and what they are passionate about.
Nat Ho has been in the local scene for over a decade, starting from a contestant on Singapore Idol, and now, an actor on the hit local drama series, Tanglin. The 33-year-old been winning hearts ever since he hit the screens. We must say, Nat’s physique has only gotten better and better. Do you remember going goo goo gaga over him as a teen watching Polo Boys? Today, we find ourselves still going gaga over him in Tanglin.
Besides that, he’s achieving his true dream of becoming a singer. He’ll be releasing his second EP, The Game, later this year. If catching him on Instagram (or every night on Tanglin) isn’t enough, head down to his food stall, Love Bento, which serves healthy meals. He’s an actor, a singer and a business owner! So really, what’s not to like about this multi-talented local hunk?

The English Literature degree holder is a local actor and model at Mediacorp. At 36 years, Elvin Ng is known for his rocky academic path. Although he left his primary school as one of the top ten students of his class, he got lazy and failed his A levels, which pushed him to retake them in a private junior college. The wakeup call taught him that success comes with hard work, and that is possibly what makes him the successful actor he is now.
After years of being on screen, he still swoons our hearts. Elvin’s journey to stardom began in 2005 after he was discovered on a variety show, School Belle and The Beau. Acting wasn’t always his forte, as you probably know by now. But he has grown to become one of the most popular actors in the local entertainment industry.

Russel Ong, the national swimmer turned actor. The 28-year-old once represented Singapore as a swimmer Now he’s starred in a few local shows, like the first season of Lion Moms where he played an extremely charming bachelor and fitness trainer. Recently, he was seen alongside fellow national swimmers at a local fund-raiser which aimed to bring awareness to and fund rheumatology.
The former national swimmer gave up what was once his dream, because he lost the passion for competitive swimming. But he is happy as he found a passion in acting, and now is hosting the fourth season of Channel NewsAsia’s Luxe Asia.

Ahh, Nathan Hartono. It’s hard to believe the charming, humble 26-year-old was once a boy who was too shy to show off his wondrous vocal chords. His career began after winning Teenage Icon’s singing competition in 2005. A year later he released his debut album and soon after majored in Music Production & Engineering at the Berklee College of Music.
Since then he’s been on a break from school and has been on screens too – working alongside YouTube channel TreePotatoes and participating in last year’s Sing! China, where he was the runner-up. The Milo-obsessed singer, currently taking a well deserved break in South Korea, will be releasing more songs soon.

Yet another Tanglin cutie. Darryl Yong was once a stewart with Singapore Airlines- probably one of the stewarts we couldn’t stop staring at with our girlfriends. Afterwards, the Law and Management diploma holder participated in talent search contests which ultimately landed him in a contract with Mediacorp.
Ever since then, the fitness junkie’s been stealing hearts one-by-one in both English and Chinese productions, with the present one being Tanglin, where he plays a father to an adorable little girl.

Sorry ladies, this 38-year-old English expat is taken. Radio DJ Jamie Yeo’s tinder boyfriend-turned-husband is not only good-looking but boy does he grow some really pretty plants (seriously). The urban farmer and his green fingers are blessing the earth one plant at a time. His motivation? His love for fresh food. Rupert believes that nothing tastes better than food out of your own garden. Jamie sure is one lucky woman!
Another reason to check out his Instagram page? He has an extremely cute fluffy Schanauzer, Ranulph. And his daughter Alysia, his newborn son Luke and of course his plants, regularly feature on his account too.

You might have not seen him around, but the 28-year-old model will make your heart melt. Sean O’Pry is an American model who was talent scouted at a young age because of his prom photos. Since then, he’s been in multiple campaigns and runway shows for brands like Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and yes, Uniqlo. Sean once said in an interview E! News, that if he hadn’t been a model, chances are he’d be in biology, having loved his trip to Sea Camp as a teen.
The dreamy blue-eyed model has also appeared alongside stars like Madonna and Taylor Swift in music videos. In Taylor Swift’s Blank Space video, he plays a love interest. Unfortunately, he’s dating fellow model Samantha Gradoville, but that doesn’t mean we should be skipping his Instagram page.

Last, but at all the least, is this hottie who has been stirring up hearts since competing (and winning) the 22nd cycle of America’s Next Top Model, so if this is your first time seeing his pretty face, you’re welcome. Besides winning for his looks, Nyle DiMarco also won the hearts of many with his humble heart for being an activist for the deaf community – unknown by many, Nyle too is hearing-impaired.
