An Interview with Deaf Gay Model Martin Ritchie

Martin Ritchie, left, was initially rejected by Janice Dickinson because his tummy wasn’t too firm. But he returned, and is now a “new model” on season four.


By Daniel A. Kusner

Queer Texan Martin Ritchie hopes to impress Janice Dickinson. He’s got one advantage the other models don’t — he can’t hear her scream

Rejection can’t stop Martin Ritchie from achieving his dreams. Neither can being hearing impaired nor being gay. Four years ago, the 20-year-old moved from Austin to Los Angeles to start a professional modeling career and serve as a positive role model for people with disabilities.

His mom still lives in Austin, and while he never went to college, Ritchie says if he wasn’t modeling he would have tried to study dentistry at the University of Texas.

After he moved to Hollywood, he struggled with trying to get his modeling career off the ground and worked at an Abercrombie & Fitch store at local mall.

Then he was discovered by the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. But during his audition, Dickinson rejected him — because he had a “muffin top,” which meant he needed to work on his abs.

He did. And on Tuesday, he’s selected as one of the agencies “new models,” who gets picked to live in a Hollywood mansion.

Since Ritchie works with an interpreter, Dallas Voice caught up with him via e-mail earlier this week.

The Interview:

Q: Were you born in Texas?
A: No, I was born in Lakeland, Fla. Although I feel like I was born in Austin. Austin represents the easy life we’re all supposed to have — the beautiful view of Town Lake; so many people running and kayaking under the bridge …

Q: Are you an expert at seducing a guy with your eyes?
A: Probably. People always came to me and say, “Wow, you have Jane Seymour’s eyes.”

Q: How could they gay community improve how they interact with their deaf brothers and sisters?
A: Show some good affection, communicate with them all the time and share your emotional moments.

Q: What’s your idea of an ideal date?
A: Just a simple romantic dinner.

Q: What’s your idea of a date from hell?
A: Broken chairs and tables.

Q: Is sarcasm hard to pick up on?
A: Not really. But it depends on the person, you know?

Q: What can deaf gay guys do better than gay guys with perfect hearing?
A: Deaf gay guys know how to use eye contact, which is powerful because we all communicate through our eyes.

Q: Because you can’t hear, are any of your other senses — sight, touch, taste — superior?
A: Absolutely! I am very sensitive with my taste and smell.

Q: Can you hear anything at all?
A: Yes, I can hear in my left ear.

Q: Were you born that way?
A: Yes. Although I felt like I was born hearing until I was a few weeks old. I really don’t know.

Q: When Janice previously rejected you and told you to shape up, how did you react?
A: I thought, “Oh, my gosh!” I decided to build up some muscle mass and, of course, I’ve had to change my attitude.

Q: How did improve your physique?
A: I worked on my arms and chest. However, I’m still struggling with my abs. But I have this wonderful trainer I work with, and he’s going to completely transform me. So, you guys better watch out!

Q: Does Janice scare you?
A: Oh, not at all. I’ve dealt with many people. And comparing Janice to those people — she is such a sweetheart and a lady. Yes, she likes to open herself to others all the time. She showed us that she really cares about us in the house.

Q: If you could have perfect hearing for four hours, what would you want to do?
A: I would ask my date to go out with me to the beach during the sunset, where I can hear everything … peacefully. And I would just tell him to tell me something funny or some love stories.

Q: What modeling assignments have you landed?
A: I’ve modeled for Logan Milan, and I recently landed a job for Kentucky Jeans. My next goal is be gracing the Dolce & Gabbana billboards around the world.

Q: If Janice granted you an ultimate modeling wish — you could do anything you wanted — what would that assignment be like?
A: A permanent full-time model for Guess and Kenneth Cole.


TUNE IN tonight, Tuesday, August 26, and watch Martin in the season four premiere of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency show on the Oxygen channel.

17 thoughts on “An Interview with Deaf Gay Model Martin Ritchie”

  1. Don’t you hate it when they refer to us as “hearing impaired”. It’s DEAF. Get it right, people!

    Aside from that, I thought it was an interesting article. Martin seems like a really bright dude. I wish him much success.

  2. The interview says Martin Ritchie “serves a positive role model for people with disabilities”.

    No, no, no. I’m sorry but as I said yesterday in my comments on the other article here…, I object to anyone calling someone that has done pornography as a career a role model. That’s not a role model, I’m sorry.

  3. I can’t wait! I’m counting the hours until the show starts!

    And hey Susan, he’s a role model in his own way. Maybe not the poster child type, but the fact that he’s gotten where he’s at, against all the struggles he’s had in his life speak volumes about who he is and his character.

  4. I’m also looking forward to it. I’m having a couple of friends over tonight to watch the premiere, complete with popcorn 🙂

  5. I’m surprised not to see more comments here.  What did y’all think of the show?  I loved it!  It’s going to be an interesting season no doubt.  And Martin, of course, looked so hot.  Damn, that’s one good looking man.  He has a lot of personality too and it shows.  Way to go, Martin!

  6. I’m very proud of Martin.  He did great job on the Janice Dickinson show.  And his interpreter is really hot!  Is the interpreter gay?

  7. My opinion, he did good job.  Hope he can make it stay until end of show.  Hope they will pick him one of final.  Hope so.  I support him because he is deaf.  But looks, he is okay.  Better Chandler.  Chandler is the hottest one of all!  I wish I can get him in my bed!

  8. I agree with P. Hendricks about the hearing impaired comment. My eyes rolled in my head about that comment. I did not get to watch the show with Martin Ritchie as I have zero cable. I hope will come out on DVD like L Word do.

  9. other than deafbunny who ‘a deafie’ have done porn so HOT?? no one! brave to martin

  10. he’s a former ametuer porno performer—there’s a dvd called the big swell he bottoms in it—he’s got a cute butt

  11. I think he’s just the cutest thing. I was watching for a bit last night and one of the other models made a comment about how Martin couldn’t talk and starting mocking him

    and what porn has this guy done? I must have missed that one


  12. I saw Martin on JDMA and found him to be adorable and very charming! Best of luck to you and know you are an inspiration in all aspects! In reference to his past….I’m sure we have all done something in our past that is questionable. Nonetheless, you go and make a great impact in th modeling agency, Martin!

  13. Martin is quite a gentleman and certainly easy on the eyes…quite good looking. Stay real Martin.

    (Don’t like the porn commentary. Is it true? Hope not. If so, let’s hope he is no longer involved with that.)

  14. yeah, the porn commentary is true. He performed in The Big Swell, produced by BoyRide films, under the name York Hubbard. It’s a good scene.
