Hunk of the Day: Colin Brazeau

Colin Jerel Brazeau0

This is one special Hunk of the Day, not solely for purposes of beauty and physical attraction, but in education and well-roundedness. (He plays the viola – and quite well.) Colin Brazeau is a student working on his B.A. in Communication Studies with a certificate in Classical Viola Music Performance and a focus in French Language and Literature at Northwestern University. How many of us have done even one of those things? Even more impressive is his LinkedIn profile, in which his pursuits are expounded thusly:

His overall program of research focuses on the impact that the new wave of Online Social Media has had on adolescent social behavior. More specifically he examines the changes in levels of narcissism, co-dependency, and overall self-image with increased Social Networking Site usage.

Finally, someone who’s studying something with relevance to today’s world. I can’t wait to see what his research uncovers.

Hunk of the Day: Brenton Thwaites

Brenton Thwaites

You know what makes me feel old? The fact that the Hunk of the Day, Brenton Thwaites, was born AFTER Madonna released ‘Like A Prayer.’ That’s a gut-wrenching check-in with Father Freaking Time. Anyway, here’s the offending youngster, frolicking on a beach sans shirt, as all handsome young guys should do. Somebody cue ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ – oh wait, she just canceled her concert again. Nevermind. We’re all getting old. One day Mr. Thwaites will be here too. Let’s hope he enjoys the ride beforehand. (By the way, did you realize that that was my very first Cher reference on this blog? Like, ever. Let it sink in.)

Hunk of the Day: Michael Hoffman

Mike Hoffman101

Much ado has been made over this gentleman’s recent ‘leaking’ (literally) of several racy videos. Apparently he’s a popular Instagram bodybuilder who up until now had only teased at nudity. Of course, I only heard about him when his videos hit the web and the nudity embargo was broken, so here is Hunk of the Day Michael Hoffman. Whether or not the leaking was intentional (a properly-timed sex tape can do wonders for the career) or accidental, there’s nothing much to be ashamed about with a figure like that of Mr. Hoffman. Though I won’t show you all the bits and explosions that are already out there, this should give you a indication of why he’s been so popular.

In our selfie-obsessed day and age, where exhibitionism is rampant, you can’t fault Mr. Hoffman for putting it all out there. For every exhibitionist willing to be brave, there are a hundred trolls hidden behind anonymous names and no-faces waiting to rip us to shreds. So I say to Mr. Hoffman, rock on, and rock out…

UPDATE: Michael Hoffman wants the world to know he is not gay, despite what those videos show. As is often the case, it’s so much better when they don’t speak. See below…

Hunk of the Day: Joross Gamboa

joross gamboa 1

I’d never heard the name ‘Joross’ before, so perhaps Filipino actor and model Joross Gamboa can put it on the map. (It sounds a bit like something out of a Superman film, but I digress.) As the Hunk of the Day, Mr. Gamboa represents all sorts of hunky good things, and for those who like a little armpit action the featured photo is for you. (Yes you, because we know all about your quirks and peccadilloes.)

Hunk of the Day: Ugo Monye

ugo monye 01

Another rugby star is crowned Hunk of the Day. This is Ugo Monye, but of far greater interest to me than the rugby part of his career is his fronting the latest Molton Brown campaign. Molton Brown makes the best-smelling shower and bath gels. I was first turned onto the British company while visiting London about a decade ago. Since then, I’ve been hooked, even if they are on the pricey side for soap. As for Mr. Monye, he’s part of their new Sport collection, which I have yet to try, but if it makes my body even slightly reminiscent of his body, then I’m giving it a go.

Hunk of the Day: Gary Lucy

gary lucy 101

Another gift from across-the-pond, this is Gary Lucy, our Hunk of the Day. While largely unknown on these shores, he’s a major star in the land of ‘Hollyoaks‘, ‘Footballers‘ Wives’, and ‘EastEnders’ – British dramas where he often disrobed for love scenes or showers or other integral plot devices. Currently he’s starring in ‘The Full Monty‘ (where there was recently a lighting snafu which resulted in theatergoers getting to see Mr. Lucy’s, well, full monty.) The possibility of that no doubt caused a bulge in ticket sales.

Hunk of the Day: Tom Varndell

Tom Varndell 100

Another across-the-pond hottie stripping for a good cause, this is Hunk of the Day Tom Varndell. A rugby player for the Wasps, Mr. Varndell had some matter-of-fact words to describe his naked shoot for Cosmopolitan magazine: ”I’ve never done a full nude shoot before so it was a bit nerve wracking. But rugby players work hard and train every day, we have to be in decent shape and we are kind of entertainers on the pitch anyway so we like to show off!” There’s nothing this website likes more than a good show off.

Hunk of the Day: Brendon Urie

brendon urie 101

Brendon Urie, lead singer for Panic! At The Disco, is our Hunk of the Day, brought to my attention by this scorching rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ – which manages to rise to the Freddie Mercury occasion and do more than justice to the Queen classic. Mr. Urie carries an impish sexiness with him as demonstrated in his lively performance. Of course, music always adds a dash of sexiness to everything. [See Adam LevineJustin Timberlake, Lenny Kravitz, Jon Bon Jovi, Jake Shears, Enrique Iglesias, or Adam Lambert.]

Hunk of the Day: Tyler Glenn

Tyler Glenn

Lead singer for the group Neon Trees, Hunk of the Day Tyler Glenn is also openly-gay, which is neither here nor there. It feels like we’ve been on the threshold of not having that matter for some time. With every day, and every person who comes out, it’s less of a big deal. A small but integral part of what makes a person who they are. Still, the struggle is not quite over, and Mr. Glenn is a welcome dose of Mormon-raised honesty. Add him to the hot gay musically-inclined ranks of  Tom Goss, Steve Grand, Brett Gleason, Eli Lieb, MikaChris Salvatore and Aiden Leslie.

PS – I am in love with his style.

Hunk of the Day: Patrick Wilson

patrick wilson 101

From his booty-baring Broadway turn in ‘The Full Monty’ to his booty-baring role in the HBO version of ‘Angels in America’ Patrick Wilson has done more butt-flashing than many a Hunk of the Day, and so it is with great fanfare that he gets to be named a Hunk now. Recently he caused a sexy stir in his turn on ‘Girls’ – a show which I have not yet seen, but which I’m told is as sexy as most of what he does. When researching these shots, I was more impressed and delighted to learn that Mr. Wilson plays in a band with his brothers on occasion. That’s the sort of real-life experience that instantly makes a celebrity more relatable, and endearing.

Hunk of the Day: Jonathon Nason

johnathan nason 1

It’s not often that I get to actually meet a Hunk of the Day (in fact, there are only two three that I’ve shook hands with in real-life: Christian, the unforgettable Skip, and Andy (and I’ve shook more than hands with the latter). This time around, I’ve met the featured Hunk – Jonathan Nason. He works in Ogunquit, so for the past few years he has served me libations at The Front Porch. Recently, he was crowned Mr. Ogunquit, and these photos should give a pretty powerful indication as to why.

A native of Maine, Mr. Nason was born in the small town of Hiram, where he started off working at his father’s construction company. After tiring of construction, he made his way to Ogunquit, and The Front Porch, where he has been working ever since. While he enjoys the atmosphere and social aspect of the job, his true passion seems to reside in art and all its forms, and he finds a creative outlet by expressing himself through drawing and painting (as seen below.) As for his recent crowning as Mr. Ogunquit, Mr. Nason joins a long line of illustrious hunks who have been gracing the beaches of Ogunquit for over thirty years. Stop by The Front Porch, or the beach, before the season ends to see him in action.

Hunk of the Day: Stuart Hatton ~ Mr. Gay World

stuart hatton 100

While I was pulling for my own country in the Mr. Gay World competition, credit must be given where credit is due, and the winner of this year’s Mr. Gay World was Hunk of the Day Stuart Hatton. If the US couldn’t do it, I’m just as thrilled to have the UK take the prize. Plus, my hat goes off to anyone who knows how to rock the ink and the spectacles at the same time. Bravo, Mr. Hatton.

Hunk of the Day: Killian Jones

Killian Jones00

Give me a swashbuckling bit of eye-liner, some leather boots, and a sharp, shiny hook, and I’m a happy Comic-Con guy. Or in this case, the Hunk of the Day Killian Jones, who stars as Captain Hook on ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Yet another television show I have not yet seen, it sounds charming enough, with its fairy-tale-mash-up story lines. And if Captain Hooks looks this dashing (and hairy) I may have to check it out.

Hunk of the Day: Brad van Buuren

brad van buuren 1

Sometimes a Hunk of the Day just needs the right person to bring him into focus. In this case it’s hunky Brad van Buuren who gets a visionary hand by photographer John Bortolin in this impressive display of man meeting model. Mr. Bortolin manages to capture both the light and the impressive subject in all their glory. This sort of thing has happened before, and whenever beauty and art and talent find their way to each other it will happen again.

Hunk of the Day: Aiden Leslie

Aiden Leslie 1

Gay singer-songwriter Aiden Leslie was good enough to start following me on Twitter, so I’m returning the favor in the only way I know how: granting him Hunk of the Day honors. Mr. Leslie has been remixed by the masterful likes of Junior Vasquez, and hopes to bring more male vocalists to the clubs. This post brings some of his eye candy to the fore, while his website offers a much better view of him, and allows a fuller description of his work, as seen in the excerpt below:

Six days after graduating high school in Ohio, Aiden Leslie moved to New York City to pursue his music dreams. “I was mesmerized by Elvis as a child,” he remembers. “My parents were huge fans and would always play his records. One morning I told my parents I wanted to be a singer like Elvis and they said I could do anything I wanted. Their belief encouraged me.” In New York, Aiden was cast in an off Broadway play. In between rehearsals, he would tag along with the show’s sound engineer and scour the shelves of Eightball Records, a vinyl record shop that was popular with DJs in the mid-nineties. There, Aiden was introduced to an underground music world he didn’t know existed. It wasn’t long before he became a fixture in the New York nightlife, frequenting clubs like Palladium, Tunnel, Twilo, Roxy, and Jackie 60 to listen and dance to after-hour DJs Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia. “I saw dance and the underground club scene as another form of theatre”, he explains. “Unscripted and self-expressive; an art form in stark contrast to the strict structure of the traditional plays I was performing in.” The one element he found to be lacking in dance was the presence of strong male vocalists. “A lot of DJs are simply not open to playing male artists on their dance floors. I think it’s time that has changed. I want to be a part of the movement to bring more guys to the floor.”
