Why we love ”Amish in the City”’s Mose

WHAT HE’S DOING He’s one of five Amish kids, aged 18 to 24, who are spending part of their ”rumspringa” (an Amish rite of passage in which young adults can experience the outside world before committing to their faith) by moving into an L.A. house with six hip young urbanites.

WHY HE’S HOT RIGHT NOW The former teacher may seem to be the least worldly of his co-religionists (he nearly drowned during his first dip in the ocean), but Mose’s wry sense of humor and determination to fearlessly try new experiences while holding on to his faith make him the year’s most lovable reality TV star.

BREAKOUT MOMENT When his swim trunks puffed up in the Jacuzzi, Mose surprised everyone by whipping them off — only to reveal a pair of black underwear beneath. Who says the Amish don’t have a sense of humor?
