Coverboy: Shane

Son of the Shore

The second time’s the charm for 21-year-old Shane, at least when it comes to applying to be a Coverboy. The Eastern Shore native applied to grace the pages of Metro Weekly nearly two years ago, but got cold feet because he wasn’t yet out to his family. Now out and proud, Shane, a junior at Towson University studying accounting, is spending the summer working at his father’s seafood wholesale company. In his spare time, he loves to go boating or visit the beach at Assateague Island near Ocean City, Md. But even country-coastal boys need some city nightlife. Look for Shane dancing on weekends at Baltimore’s Hippo or at Town in D.C.

What’s on your nightstand?
Books that I’m reading, shot glasses, Vaseline and a drink coaster.

What’s in your nightstand drawer?
Magazines, condoms, coins, lighters, rubber bands.

What are your television favorites?
I used to hate it, but this season I’m addicted to Glee. My roommate and I also watch Family Guy all the time.

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
The Powerpuff Girls.

What superhero would you be?
Mr. Incredible. I like the name.

Who’s your greatest influence?
My mother, in a lot of different ways. She’s been my rock my entire life. We’re very similar. We handle situations the same way.

What’s your greatest fear?
Losing my hair. I’m praying genetics are on my side.

Pick three people, living or dead, who you think would make the most fascinating dinner guests imaginable.
Oprah Winfrey, Adele and Hillary Clinton.

What would you serve?
If Oprah is coming over, we’re going out, because I’m not a good cook and I’m a pretty picky eater.
