Hunky Turkey Coma

If you’re like me, at about 8 or 9 pm you’re coming out of a turkey coma and ambling into the kitchen for round two. When we were kids, Suzie, my brother and I would usually sneak down the back stairs of her old Victorian while the adults spoke in animated tones in the red-velvet-wallpaper-buffered living room in the hours after dinner. The bustle of the day had subsided, but no one wanted to depart. We ate a small second dinner, then headed back upstairs to prolong things as much as possible.

These days, I’m all about getting home and winding down in quiet. Some of us have to work tomorrow. For those who need a little break, here’s a look at some former hunks to end the holiday with a sweet treat. Guy candy gay ahead.

First up is Chris Salvatore. Wet or dry, he’s a sight to behold

Harry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe and Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham make a couple of splashes on their own. 

Colton Haynes, fresh off his bum-pounding turn on ‘American Horror Story: Cult’, bares a manicured chest here. 

Pietro Boselli does what he does best: pose and pause in the skimpiest of outfits. 

Finally, bringing up the very beautiful rear is Gus Kenworthy in this naked shot from his ESPN issue

Hunk of the Day: Cody Christian, Times Two

He’s been named Hunk of the Day once before (see it here), but thanks to a new photo shoot Cody Christian earns his second HOD honor. Rather than go into Mr. Christian’s bio all over again, I’ll let the pics speak for themselves.

Not Just a Goodfellow, A Great Fellow

This is Daniel Goodfellow, a healthy dose of guy-candy for a mid-Monday moment. Mr. Goodfellow has already been named a Hunk of the Day, and if he keeps releasing photos like these he will likely be again. The Speedo has long been the official outfit of choice for, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Triple-Time Hunk of the Day: Nick Adams

In a runaway victory, Nick Adams was voted the next Triple-Time Hunk of the Day. He is only the second man to make it into that coveted realm, joining Ronnie Kroell to make a very beautiful pair. Mr. Adams is, rather fittingly, a triple threat himself – dancing, singing, and acting his way across the Broadway, and national, stages. Having originated the role of Adam/Felicia in the stage version of ‘Priscilla: Queen of the Desert’ he’s also appeared in scene-stealing form in ‘A Chorus Line’ (where his arms were rumored to elicit some body envy from a buff Mario Lopez), ‘Chicago’ and ‘Wicked’.

He may be best known for his star turns in the Broadway Bares events, where a lack of clothing showcases his finer points. Some call it gratuitous, I call it shrewd. When you know your best assets, it’s always best to highlight them. Perhaps better than all of that, however, seems to be a genuine nice-guy attitude and a winning smile that disarms and enchants the moment it grows wide across his face.

Of course, one must have more than a great smile and a chiseled body to be considered for a three-time Hunk of the Day. Adams puts forth some fascinating insight and commentary on his Twitter feed, and lots of beauty and inspiration on Instagram. He’s not afraid to get political, and that’s a refreshing, and courageous, component to any celebrity these days. 

Now that he’s secured his third Hunk of the Day honor, he’s in prime position to nab the very first Quadruple HOD award.

Hunk of the Day: Scott Evans

Scott Evans makes his first appearance on the Hunk of the Day boards, strutting beautifully across these virtual pages in stunning style. His website offers a better view of his accomplishments and goals, showcasing his work as a writer, journalist, producer and on-air personality. You may be more interested in his body work, however, on glorious display here.

More Thor

This isn’t much more than a gratuitous post of a shirtless Chris Hemsworth, on the day that he returns to the big screen as Thor. His last solo movie still holds special meaning for me, not so much for the flimsy storyline, but for the way we entered the theater. Skip and I are planning on doing it all over again (minus the sketchy beginning). In the meantime, here’s some more of Mr. Hemsworth (with better hair than in these shirtless pics). And here he is naked in case you need just a little bit more Thor. (And here is his bro Liam for those who prefer that.)

The Next Triple-Crown Hunk

Thus far in the history of our Hunk of the Day feature, there’s only been one gentleman who has been honored a total of three times: Ronnie Kroell. It’s time we add another to that vaunted stratosphere of hunky heaven, and I’m going to allow Twitter to vote on who it will be. (You don’t need to follow me to vote, but I’d strongly recommend it for the hoot and a half that my Twitter feed often is. The pool will be the Pinned Tweet for the next few days.) As for the final contenders for the next Triple Threat Crowning, I’ve chiseled it down to the following fine folks, in no particular order:









Each of these gentlemen has been honored as a Hunk of the Day twice already, so whoever gets the next nod will become an ultra-rare Third-Time HOD Honoree. This is serious. It’s the stuff of resume builders and online glory. It’s the spark at the end of the curriculum vitae that might get you the next gig. This is your place in the pantheon of internet adulation.

A word of advice to those in the running: promotion is everything, and nudity is even more. That’s all. Gentlemen, start your engines, and may the best Hunk win!

Hunk of the Day: Lewis Hamilton

With an entrancing website filled with news and images, Lewis Hamilton makes for a stunning Hunk of the Day. This British racing driver is a Formula One World Champion. I have no idea what that means, but it’s apparently an impressive feat, as he has received accolades the world over, and is reputed to be one of the greatest Formula One drivers in history. He’s not too bad on the eyes either, as seen here.

Hunk of the Day: Billy Eichner

His character just had his head cut off by the SCUM of American Horror Story: Cult (which I somehow got hooked on again after vowing never to return) but Billy Eichner is fully intact in his first crowning as Hunk of the Day. For a few years, I only thought of him as that annoyingly-manic street reporter who accosted an unsuspecting public with gamely-going-along-with-it celebrities, but gradually he grew on me, and his fellow stanning of Madonna made him all the more endearing. His recent turn on AHS is proof of his comedic wizardry, and displayed a surprisingly versatile range (a top to Colton Haynes’s bottom?) Anyway, congrats to Mr. Eichner on being named Hunk of the Day. Don’t lose your head over it.

(Bonus points for the Chris Pratt GIF below.)

Artful Shirtlessness

No matter how sinfully salacious or purportedly provocative a photograph might be, the moment the color is drained from it suddenly turns it into art. The images in this post are proof of that, as they feature various former Hunks of the Day in states of shirtless and shameless glee. First up, front and back, is Pietro Boselli. He’s not only been a Hunk of the Day, but has also been featured numerous times in states of underwear and states of undress, posing in his second Hunk of the Day honor. 

Recent HOD Cameron Dallas shows how low his Calvins go, much as he teased in this post.

Alexander Skarsgård strikes a quirky if smoldering pose in his tighty-whities, but he went full-on starkers for hi Hunk of the Day post. Derek Yates continues the sultry vision that he began in his first Hunk of the Day post (and his second). 

Mark-Paul Gosselaar flashed his bodacious booty in his virgin Hunk of the Day crowning

Nick Jonas has been here far too many times to list all the links, so do me (and yourself) a favor by typing his name into the Search feature at the bottom left and see what he brings up. It will be worth it, trust me. 

Adam Driver channels his sexy rub-a-dub-dub side here, as he did in his last Hunk of the Day feature (check out his first HOD post here). Giles Marini hasn’t yet been featured (or if he has, that post has gone by the wayside). Here’s a pic of him nonetheless. 

Finally, a little GIF for any Calvin Harris lovers out there. In case his original Hunk of the Day post doesn’t quench the thirst, there’s also this brief-clad one.

Fifty Shades of Shirtless

Jamie Dornan has been here a few times before – in his Hunk of the Day crowning, in these scintillating shots, and naked as a jaybird in motion. (Incidentally, why do jaybirds get all the nudity?) His work on ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ – a movie I have yet to see in its entirety, and a movie I will always have yet to see in its entirety – spurred a fan-base thirsty for more of the shirtless scenes seen here. Who am I to disagree?

A Tribute to the Brilliance of James Van Der Beek

James Van Der Beek has been here before, and fans of the Beek should revisit this post of our old pal Dawson, in which he received his first crowning as Hunk of the Day. Today’s entry is a holding spot for his next Hunk honor, which will come as soon as he shows a little more. We shall put a pin in that for now.

It seems to me that Mr. Van Der Beek is a star in need of a killer sitcom or a raunchy rom-com that showcases his edgy and sultry good looks, as well as his comedic grace. His work on ‘Varsity Blues’ and ‘Dawson’s Creek’, and his thrilling turn in ‘The Rules of Attracton’ showcased his dramatic gravitas, while his hilarious turn on ‘Don’t Trust The B—- in Apartment 23’ illuminates the prowess of a cunning funny guy. I still feel like we haven’t seen his full potential, which makes him an exciting actor to watch – those on the precipice of greatness carry an intrigue and aura of the future to them.

Hunk of the Day: Cameron Dallas

He was first teased and hinted at in this skin-heavy post, and now he finally gets his very first crowning as Hunk of the Day. This is Cameron Dallas, whose featured towel shot was snapped by the great Mario Testino. The rest of the photos and GIFs seen here attest to the vitality and perkiness of youth, and the camera-adoring visage of Mr. Dallas himself.

Hunk of the Day: Matthew Olshefski, the Shirtless Violinist

How could I not feature someone who’s best known as the “Shirtless Violinist” as Hunk of the Day? Meet Matthew Olshefski, who rubs the resin-coated horse’s hair to make sweet music on the tautly-wound strings of a violin. That he does so shirtlessly is his Gypsy-like gimmick, but it only works because he has the talent to back up the beauty and the brawn. Check out his website here for more aural delights. (And no, this is not just some blatant promotional bit of pandering so that he emblazons my name across his chest, but if he sees fit to do so, who am I to refuse?)
