Hunk of the Day: Chad Buchanan

chad buchanan 100

For some male models, a certain anonymity aids in their work. Far better to be unknown and unable to be pinned down with the albatross of a background, to be saddled with the onus of a history. It allows the imprint of whatever the viewer wants or needs to believe. Such seems to be the case with the mysterious Chad Buchanan, our Hunk of the Day. Little exists in the way of explanatory ramblings or lengthy career descriptions. It adds an enigmatic quality to his body, and his body of work. If only the Kim Kardashians of the world would take a lesson.

Hunk of the Day: Isa Rahman

Isa Rahman 101

I love it when the Hunk of the Day comes with his own website and has a brief bio already written up. This is Isa Rahman, and here’s an excerpt from said website:

Rising star, Isa Rahman, has appeared on hit television shows such as ‘Ugly Betty’ and ‘Days of Our Lives,’ starred in acclaimed independent films, numerous TV commercials and has performed on the esteemed stages of New York City. He also happens to be one of the most in-demand faces in the modeling world, having been featured on the pages of top magazines such as GQ and L’uomo Vogue as well as starred in advertising campaigns for distinguished brands such as Barney’s New York, Neiman Marcus, Izod, Target and Macy’s.

As an actor, Isa is skilled in the Meisner Technique which he has studied with acclaimed acting coaches across the country.

Hunk of the Day: Max Emerson

Self-described ‘Male Underpants Supermodel’ Max Emerson is the Hunk of the Day (again!) Recently Mr. Emerson debuted his web series ‘Max’s Underpants’ which is pretty much self-explanatory. Of greater interest to me is his book ‘Hot Sissy: Life Before Flashbulbs’ – and I may have to request a copy because it sounds ravishing. Kind of like these photographs. I love when a handsome male model proves to have more than what’s beneath the briefs. In this case, a charming personality and enough brains to write a book.

UPDATE BONUS: Check out an additional video featuring the fabulous Colby Melvin.

Hunk of the Day: Greg Kelley

greg kelley 100

Openly-gay male model Greg Kelley is the scintillating Hunk of the Day. Mr. Kelley has that awe-inspiring ability to completely transform his look from photo to photo – it’s almost magical the way he shape-shifts from one appearance to another with only a subtle change in gaze or attitude. It’s the stuff the greatest models have to have in order to work every conceivable angle in the business. Such chameleonic talent is celebrated here. Why be dull when you can change it up?

Hunk of the Day: Miles Davis Moody

As further evidenced by his inclusion of gorgeous ginger Bryce Eilenberg in this year’s pit crew, RuPaul has always had exquisite taste in beautiful objects, and today’s Hunk of the Day Miles Davis Moody is no exception. Another member of the Drag Race pit crew, Mr. Moody comes equipped with a smoldering gaze, smoky eyes, and sinfully sexy body. The engines have been roaring for quite some time. Back that thing up

Hunk of the Day: Justin Leonard

Justin Leonard 01

Male model and personal fitness trainer Justin Leonard is the Hunk of the Day. Represented by Ford Models Chicago and The Matthew Agency in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Mr. Leonard brings some classic American ruggedness to the realm of hunks, along with a sultry smile that manages to be sweet and sexy at once. His work with UnderwearNation.com, as seen here, is something to behold. That site always manages to bring out the best, and the beast, in its photo shoots. Of course, Mr. Leonard brings some of his own heat as well. Good things to work with…

Hunk of the Day: Cole Monahan

Cole Monahan 101

The song may have said that long-haired freaky people need not apply, but that’s certainly not the case for Cole Monahan, the Hunk of the Day. His lengthy locks are a vital component of his appeal, and while long hair has never been my thing (move along, Fabio) this site is not just for me. Mr. Monahan has something to do with hockey, I believe, but you shouldn’t take my word for it. Out of all the sports I know nothing about (which is basically all the sports) hockey is the one about which I know the least.  (I mean, I know more about curling than I do about hockey.) But if Monahan wants to sign me up for some lessons, I’d be more than happy to triple salchow for his ass. After all, what would Brian Boitano do?

UPDATE: It turns out Monahan has nothing to do with professional hockey, he just posed for a hockey-themed spread. He’s actually a professional male model. This is something that makes much more sense to me. Terra firma, not hockey ice.

Hunk of the Day: William Levy

William Levy

If thou haven’t seen the Hunk who melts your heart here, then by all means send me a request or a recommendation. I have never turned anyone down (unless they’ve already appeared, in which case I’ll send you the link, or grant them a second Hunk of the Day crowning). In the case of William Levy, it was my friend JoAnn (an upcoming Guest Blogger) who alerted me to the fact that he had not yet been a Hunk of the Day. (I thought for sure he had, so that’s where my memory is at. Run and tell that.) To make up for such misfortune, here is Mr. Levy in his first Hunk of the Day feature. (There will likely be a second… and maybe even a third…)

If you don’t follow the telenovelas, Mr. Levy may be new to you too. His main claim to fame seems to be a stint on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ a show that I have never seen, which puts into doubt all my gay credibility. Tell me when he’s on ‘Downton Abbey‘ and I won’t miss him. (Boom, it’s back.) And speaking of back, which is better: his backside or his front loader? Your answers may affect what you see in his next crowning.

A simple post with a lone male model.

No frills, no fanciness, no fussiness.

This is Matheus Rodrigues, our Hunk of the Day.

That’s all.

Hunk of the Day: Krit McLean

Krit McClean 101

Bangkok-born and New York-raised model Krit McLean is planning to double major in English and Political Science but currently taking a gap year to pursue a modeling career and maintain his pristinely chic website, KrisMcLean.com. These photos will attest that it’s a very wise decision. His blog is focused on fashion and style, as well as other inspired interests:

My style is inspired by experiences and interests including: sneakerhead culture, extensive travel through Asia, urban street-wear, art, hip-hop, and modeling.

The primary intention of this space is to showcase my aesthetic (and as it evolves, my lifestyle), though my larger message is to live life as your own individual. Be yourself, be open, be interested, be interesting, and dream!  ~ Krit McLean

Hunk of the Day: Ricardo Veia

Ricardo Veia 00

When the color drains from a photo, the content sometimes becomes more real. As much as I love color – vibrant, strong, bold, super-saturated color – I also appreciate the subtle nuances that a black-and-white photograph forces the viewer to find. Such is the contrast of the feature photo here with all that follows. This is Hunk of the Day Ricardo Veia, in shades of gray.

Hunk of the Day: Barrett Pall

Barrett Pall 100

If I wasn’t envious enough of the blessed body, the chiseled face, and the perfect package, I would be envious of the fact that the Hunk of the Day Barrett Pall was recently performing in my dream gig: as the bartender of the ‘Watch What Happens Live’ Playhouse, and personally mixing cocktails for the one and only Andy Cohen. Yeah, that stings a little, but to the beauty go the spoils.

When writing about someone as gorgeous as Mr. Pall, I try to uncover something that makes him a little more relatable, a little more human, a bit more, well, mortal – because no one should be that perfect. His bio doesn’t do much to make me feel better about myself, reading like a much more well-rounded and successful person than I could ever hope to be: writer, model, fitness instructor, personal trainer, fashion lover, world traveler, foodie, life coach and all around good guy.

I thought I might find some less-than-stellar dirt on his website, Artisan & King, but that space turns out to be as perfect as everything else about him. (Grrrr…) I was especially impressed with the ‘Feelings‘ portion of his site, and this passage about a break-up:

This thing called a break-up is made even harder when one person has not done anything immensely wrong. It is simply a difference of the minds, of the hearts, of the souls. A love tank empty, a heart broken, an intertwined spirit unraveled.

There are many different scenarios that lead to break ups, but one thing is certain the love does not just disappear. You may do the breaking up, or you may be the one broken up with, but if the love was real, neither side of this lackluster coin feels like “winning.”

You shared couches, meals, memories. You became each other’s best friend, confidant, partner. You enhanced each other’s comfort, ease, understanding. You started to build a life, introduced family, talked about the future. This person was not your everything, but rather the missing piece.

Then things changed.

The thoughtfulness, the acts of love, the communication all got lost in translation, or simply never arrived. You start to feel the exact opposite of how this person originally made you feel. Your happiness fades. Your eyes tire from tears. You know this simply is not working.

You’ve tried different ways to make yourself heard. You’ve made changes. You’ve done work.

You’ve given hints. You’ve been explicit. You’ve done it all. ~ Barrett Pall

It would be made easier if someone had done something awful, but the truth is nothing makes this easier. Anger only masks the pain and sadness that eventually comes. You wish things had been different, but wishing only makes wishes. Actions had not been employed, and you are left with a heavy heart, not a heart-happy one.

You think back to the times it was magic, and it only makes it sadder.

You could be immature and negative, but it gets you no where, so you choose to honor the love you had, respect the time you spent together, and think of a future when maybe, just maybe, you and your ex can be friends.

Break-ups are not the end, nor are they the beginning. They are simply a time in your life that you must allow yourself to be present with some of your deepest feelings; feelings that surround your own happiness and ultimate life.

We must understand that if there was true love present then we were gifted one of the greatest pleasures of life.

We are not to speak poorly, focus on the bad times and leave that time in our lives in a box. We are meant to take the things we learned from that person, and cherish them, so that we may continue to grow. We shall plant a seed deep inside of us with that person’s name so that a tree of knowledge can grow from the things we learned. We must honor the relationship, the good times, the love, so that we may ultimately honor ourselves. ~ Barrett Pall

So… yeah. I got nothing. No critique, no faults to find, nothing but admiration. Luckily, what I’m left with is inspiration – so I guess I got something after all – and a pretty substantial something at that.

A Hunky Look Back

15 hot men 101

Sometimes, out of laziness or boredom or a greedy wish for a spike in hits, I do something like this. The gentlemen featured in this post have all been Hunks of the Day at one time or another, but are more than worth another look, hence this mini-compilation. First up is one of your favorites, Quinn Jaxon. Noted for his modeling work with Andrew Christian, Mr. Jaxon has also been working on his dancing and acting career in the sunny hills of Hollywood.

Next up is… wait a second. No, this can’t be right. Apologies. There seems to be some confusion, as Justin Bieber was a Non-Hunk of the Day. Sorry, kid. Attitude kills it every time.

Back into the swing of things with Shayne Ward, a musical hunk from across the pond. He should more the make up for that naked Bieber snafu.

And last but not least are the beauteous buttocks of Russell Tovey, who’s come a long hunky way in the last few years. Shake it, shake it!

Hunk of the Day: Brian Maier

Brian Maier 101

This Hunk of the Day is both DJ and model, a requisite combination these days it seems, not that anyone seems to mind in the least. If the guy spinning sets in the booth is better seen shirtless, then so damn be it. And if he strips to his underwear in the name of his craft, well, call me a quickly-won-over fan. Meet Brian Maier, who has his own powerhouse website here. Mr. Naier exemplifies the brawny and beautiful trend whereby more and more of us are giving in to the might and majesty of the real, the hirsute, and the not-so-finely-plucked gentlemen of the moment. Twinks are so three years ago.

Hunk of the Day: Daniel Sisniega

Daniel Sisniega 01

The Andrew Christian Hunk Brigade continues its march toward immortal beauty with Daniel Sisniega, who won an Andrew Christian modeling contest. Though he doesn’t speak English, this is proof that lust is a universal language. Hailing from Mexico, Mr. Sisniega fills out his Christian wares as if to the manner born. {This was also a suggestion by a FaceBook friend, so if you have any men you’d like to see up here, shoot me their names. You can reach me directly at alanilagan1[@]gmail.com.}

Former Hunks of the Day that also modeled for Andrew Christian include the following:
