Y'all might hate on me for this because he doesn’t have a drop of Swedish blood in him, but Markus Schenkenberg set the bar high as one of Sweden’s first male models. Born from Indonesian and Dutch parents but raised in Solna, Schenkenberg dated the likes of Mariah Carey, Nicky Hilton, Victoria Silvstedt, Jessica Simpson, and, most famously, Pamela Anderson.

One could say his high point was in the 90s (as pictured above) but dude STILL looks good, proving once again that if you’re looking for a long-lasting hottie, Nordic is the way to go.
