VIDEO: Canada’s Accused Cannibal Auditions for Reality Show

Before he gained infamy as an accused killer and cannibal who allegedly mailed his victim’s body parts to elementary schools and political parties across Canda, Luka Rocco Magnotta was just one of thousands of modeling hopefuls trying to make it big on the small screen.

Below, watch Luka’s audition for the Canadian TV show Cover Guy, a typical reality competition in which male models vie for an underwear modeling contract. In the clip, Luka removes his shirt and tells producers about how he overcame his struggle with being overweight by running every morning. He also acknowledges his deep voice and says he cultivated it by practicing. Born Eric Clinton Kirk Newman in Ontario, Luka for some reason speaks with an accent reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
