WITH HIS dreamy eyes, well-groomed beard and razor-sharp cheekbones, Omar Borkan Al Gala is undeniably handsome. And according to US website Jezebel he’s one of three men who were deported last week from Saudi Arabia - reportedly because of his good looks.

The first images of the swoonsome Dubai-based actor and photographer emerged after Arabic newspaper Elaph reported a trio of hunks had been deported from Saudi Arabia over fears women would find them irresistible.

The three men, who are all from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), were attending the Jenadrivah Heritage and Culture Festival in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, when religious police “forcibly” removed them from the event.

While we do not know the identity of his studly companions, the incident has done wonders for Al Gala’s profile. His Facebook page is filled with invites to foreign countries from women promising he won’t be deported. Here’s a four-minute video demonstrating just how seriously handsome he is. Ladies, enjoy:
