He's got that mellow, chill, Southern vibe to him. You can tell everyone has a good time with this likable fella. He's got the long, flowing locks, which these days mean business when he ties them back into a samurai ponytail. We've proudly watched him defy his lanky limbs and turn into a strong, smooth-moving machine. And we've proudly watched him become a good bro to everyone here at UB. Congrats, Gideon!
