Ryan Conklin of The Real World Brooklyn is cute but not beautiful. His 5’8″ body is pretty good but not remarkable. He can be funny and charming but also sarcastic and harsh. Yet despite these things, women find him to be irresistible. Ryan has the kavorka.
As defined on the television series Seinfeld, the Latvian word kavorka means “the lure of the animal”. It is explained that women (and in this case some men) are drawn to a person that has it. They would give anything to be possessed by that person.
I don’t know if the Latvian language has a variation for this, but with Ryan it seems more like “the lure of the (stuffed) animal”. He can be just so darn adorable when he turns on his boyish charm. He knows how to do the head forward and down look, like when he is singing or when he is acting like a good listener as he did when he was talking to Katelynn Cusanelli about her surgery.
