Thamer Al-Shammari Says:
Traditions, kiss my a$$ good bye!


Walking down the streets in Jeddah, Riyadh or Khobar, the below looks like typical Saudi fela


(yitmela7, I know)

Think again, Thamer Al-Shammri is a Saudi model. Yes, you heard me people, S A U D I

Not only that but, he also comes from a well-known tribe. Thamer lived for a while in Italy during which he applied for a modeling agency. It is rumored that Thamer had had the below conversation upon his decision to become a model: (sorry, in Arabic people)

ثامر: بيه..يمه..تراني قررت أصير عارض أزياء
أبوثامر: عارض وشو! يعني بتطلع مفصخ قدام الناس! واخزياااااااه..مهبول انت؟ وش تقول القبيلة عننا بعدين؟
ثامر: يبه..القبيلة ماتدري الله وين حاطها..وبعدين
أبوثامريقاطع: وشلون تبيني أمشي بين الرجاجيل..وش يقولون
أم ثامر: وش يقولون الحريم عن أمك؟ ام المفصخ! ومين ياخذ خواتك السبع بعدين..لا لا ياولدي..هذه مب علومنا
ثامر: ياجماعه.. انتم فاهمين غلط..عرض أزياء مب معناه تفصي..
أبوثامر: وش تبيني أقول لعمك لمن نخطب بنته..ترى ولدي ثامر يشتغل مفصخ
ثامر: يبه من زين بنت عمي منيرة هالحين وبعدين عمي 24 ساعة متسدح على فاشن تي في يناظر عارضات أزياء فاصخين على قولك
أم ثامر: أسكت ولا كلمة
ثامر: تدرون؟ طز فيكم..وفي عمي ومنيرة والقبيلة معاكم!


And there goes Thamer, doing his thing:


(Hamad I know, his physique is below your standards)


Thamer my homeboy, I salute you for busting the myth of Saudi holiness. I give you credit for disregarding your family well known name in order to do what you want.Next I expect to see a gbeeli (tribal) female Saudi model in Victoria’s Secret show. Yalla ladies!

Damn he is HOT HOT HOT!!! Now HE is what I need right NOW!!!

LMFAO at the mfa9a5 conversation !

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL @ the conversation and he is HOT and in the pic with the '3itra YUMMMMY

Jo,
As you can see, only ladies left comments so far. This only tells that guys, including myself, won't comment in a good way about the shammari dude. Male ego kicks in here :)

Bissa & Princess,
See my my comment to Jo :)

lil fishy,
Go gurl, show us watcha got!

Sis from USA,
Hmm..wait until u see me then hehe

Rima,
LOL, now I wanna see you in Najd one day, that would be a scene!

Sweet Anger & Taqwa,
Now I can comment negatively on his looks. Yes agree, he ain't sizzling.
But still, isn't it cool to have a gbeeli male model? :p

he looks like hes made out of plastic :/

diabz,

I know dudet he ain't a total hunk. But i'm referring to the fact that he's a godamn GBEELI male model from a Saudi. Got my point? :)

i don't understand what does being a gabeeli guy make a difference here?! if he doesn't care why should anyone else?
he's just trying to be a model and unfortunately for him, he's not that good looking at all!

Bassem,

Ask MOST gbeeli guys or girls and they’d tell you how their family/tribe names dictate, to a certain extent I must add, who to get hitched with, who to befriend, how to live, how to behave...etc etc. Holier than thou kinda thing if you know what I mean. Having said that, it does make a difference to see (and for the first time keep in mind) a gbeeli guy, totally ignoring his well known family name to become a model. I can imagine all the criticism he got by his own family/tribe for doing so and I bet their criticism was based on the fact that a gbeeli shouldn’t be doing what he does. Any gbeeli blogger can comment and correct me if I’m wrong :-)

i that you the dude elly fe alshma5 .. if it is your cute :D

is *

Bal8ees,

Seems like u didn't read the post, eh? :)

Nope, that's not me. I'm cuter :p

whoaaa, not bad looking walla :P I salute breaking the mold and pursuing what he's passionate about as well (oh come on! who doesn't want to be a model?)

However, conversely enough, family traditions are way up on my list. I'm not sure how I feel about this particular case, when family is a direct obstacle.

reminds me of...
"i'm..too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my tribe, too sexy for my country, too sexy for the dumb, dumb, dumb rules!

I'm a model, you know what I mean?
And I do my little turn on the catwalk.
yea, on the catwalk!
I shake my litte tosh on the catwalk!"


LOL

wsh zeeeeenooooooh !!
but he looks kinda weird 'n 63si in the last pic!

Sunshine,

FINALLY! someone is getting my point here. Thank you!


ZM,

nothing is perfect, eh? :)

I am a university student in the United States. I am taking a class on women in the Middle East and I am working on an assignment in which I am reading two Middle Eastern blogs, one written by a man and one by a women, and trying to understand their perspective on gender-related issues in their country. I am curious about this post of yours, in which you show a half-naked Saudi man. I am wondering if this picture is seen as indecent in your country, which I gather it is because of your written reaction to it. Would this picture ever be shown in a magazine or on a billboard in Saudi Arabia? What kinds of reactions to people have to pictures like this? What would the reaction be if there was an equivalent photo of a half-naked woman-- such as the example you posed of a Saudi woman in a Victoria's Secret advertisement?
