"My first magazine was GQ magazine." he told Inside Edition."I would say, I wanna dress just like that person and so I pretty much kept that style."
Randle's Instagram account, which features his love of stylish clothing and fit physique, launched him into the public eye.
He was at work when his daughter called to tell him that he was a trending topic on Twitter.
In an interview with Essence.com, Randle described how his pictures went viral after a friend openly posted some on Twitter.
"My daughter — she lives in California — she called me and said, 'uh, dad? You're on Twitter?' And I said 'what?!' and she said 'no, you're on Twitter and you're trending.' "
