Damn Daniel Turns Down Modeling Contract To Pursue Swimming Career


The “Damn Daniel” video has completely taken over the Internet this week, making its star Daniel Lara a viral sensation. Lara even appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with the video’s co-creator Josh Holz and was gifted a lifetime supply of Vans. But, it looks like the California high schooler isn’t taking advantage of every opportunity coming his way thanks to his newfound fame. A friend of his told Hollywood Life that Lara has turned down an offer from a modeling agency, so that he can pursue his college swimming scholarship. He goes on to say that the teen has remained incredibly modest, despite the video being shared over 400,000 times.
