Surely Thee knows who that is!
If you’re implying it’s RJ DeCristoforo, it isn’t. I don’t know exactly who the model is, but his face is too dissimilar to DeCristoforo’s to be him.

It sure looks like R.J. in both pictures to me. Look at the nose. Look at the hair line above the side burn. Look at the jaw bone protrusion below the ear lobe. Looks like a safe bet to me. :)
