MANILA, Philippines – In São Paulo, Brazil, commuters are gladly taking public transport for a glimpse of Guilherme Leão, a subway security guard turned Internet heartthrob.

According to E! Online, Guilherme became an instant celebrity after being voted “Hottest Guard” on tourism site Veja São Paulo, where he earned 76% of 18,624 votes on the online poll, beating another railway hottie Rodrigo Nogueira.

Since then, subway commuters have been getting in line to snap a photo with the 22-year-old.

NY Mag reported that in an interview with Veja São Paulo, Guilherme shared that the attention from women had affected his job. Several women gushing at him and vying for a photo opportunity had at some point, hindered him from finishing his daily rounds.


With his growing fanbase, and the huge amount of publicity he has been getting, it won’t be surprising to see him on magazine covers or even on television in the near future.
