Hollywood Hibiscus The Hustler™

Keep your eye on this one, friends: THE HUSTLER’s star is rising fast, and he’s enjoying every second of the trip! His slick good looks and smooth lines charm all the ladies, and he means those sweet words…he really loves love. But he’s got his eye on the prize, working hard to make it in Hollywood, pounding the pavement and looking for his shot. Until his big break arrives, he’s happy playing supporting roles, hanging with his pals ROCK STAR™ and PLAYBOY™, and dancing the night away with POP STAR™. He just knows he’s meant to be a star…but until then, he’ll keep scrapping, charming the ladies, hanging with his friends, and hustling his agent for his star role.

  • You’re not afraid to work hard for your big break
