It hit the fan when Italian students learned their new math lecturer, Ruggero Freddi, was Colt Star Carlo Masi in a previous life. Now Carlo has the last laugh.
It’s not the school that had the happy ending, it was Carlo Masi proving karma can be a beautiful thing sometimes. Following the original post below, enjoy a happy turn to the story.
[ORIGINAL POST – October 21, 2017]
To demonstrate his love for all things muscle, he posted a video to Facebook of himself shirtless flexing a massive pair of biceps.
The video spread like wildfire on social media among his students at La Sapienza University of Rome. It’s now had over 100,000 views at the time of this post and its growing. That’s when someone apparently recognized him.
“I knew sooner or later something was going to happen, but I didn’t expect something so big to happen. I thought someone would publish something and my students would talk about it for a while, but I wasn’t expecting the entire country to actually speak about it.”
Need a math refresher course all of sudden …

[UPDATE – November 2]
With 100K+ views of the original post outing professor Ruggero Freddi as Carlo Masi within 24 hours after posting, his student took it in stride while some of the faculty and townsfolk, not so much.
Carlo didn’t shy away from his past or try to deflect from it. Rather, he embraced it. “I’m happy and proud of both my careers. They both reflect part of my personality,” Carlo said. And he should be. Good for him.
Yesterday, however, Carlo became something much more important than a faculty member: he became a husband.
And if his handsome looks familiar, there’s a good reason for that.
His other half of the last 11 years is Gustavo Alejandro Leguizamon – formerly known as gay porn star Adam Champ who coincidentially, is with Masi in the clip above.
Carlo and Adam, congratulations! May your continuing journey be a long a happy one.
