Tell us one thing we don’t know about you. I sometimes sleepwalk to the kitchen in the early hours of the morning to get a snack.
Who was the last person you texted and what did you say? My dad and I said, ‘I’ll pack the wine!’
Tell us something about you that no-one knows. I had never worn a Speedo in my life … until this shoot.
What is something no-one knows about you? I’ll be releasing a novel before I turn 30. As a sci-fi lover, it will likely have themes that are out of this world.
Tell us something about you that no-one knows. Back scratches are my kryptonite.
What do you do? I’m an entrepreneur, model and content creator. I also created a nutrition brand called Physique Collection by Sky, which is focused on providing natural supplements to help people reach their fitness goals in a healthy way.
Are you dating anyone? I’m currently crushing on many people. That’s normal, right?

Who are you crushing on right now? I’m crushing on someone and she knows that I’m down for her.

What do you do for a living? I’m a professional MMA athlete, and I compete in the UFC’s lightweight division. I own an MMA gym in Cape Town called MADfit MMA and I’m also a martial-arts coach.
Who was the last person you texted and what did you say? I messaged my youngest brother. I told him that I miss him, and that he’s very strong and courageous.
28, TV host
What was your reaction when you were named one of COSMO’s Sexiest Men 2019? The first thing I thought was ‘this is awkward’ because I never really thought of myself as a sexy man, but now I am owning it thanks to COSMO. Haha!
29, TV presenter
What do you do for a living? Most people know me as a presenter on Top Billing. I’m also a volunteer lifeguard, and I have a company that manufactures customised training equipment, rigs, calisthenics programmes and obstacle courses.
Now that you’ve met them all, tell us who you think should win the title of COSMO’s Sexiest Man 2019. BRB, we’re feeling a lil’ (a lot!) thirsty.
