Hunk of the Day: Seth Rollins

seth rollins 1001

Professional wrestler Seth Rollins (a.k.a. Colby Daniel Lopez) struts his pumped pectitude for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and earns his first Hunk of the Day honor here. Mr. Rollins has the greased-up body and wavy long hair that recall the 80′s glory of Wrestlemania and the first flutterings of a gay boy’s heart.

Body Issue = Naked Issue

Conor McGregor 0001

Here at, we love ESPN for one thing and one thing only: the Body Issue of their magazine. Artistically (and gratuitously) displaying athletes in naked poses, it’s probably the biggest issue of their year, and has enough cachet to have gotten the likes of Michael Phelps and Rob Gronkowski totally starkers. In this post, we see some shots of Hunk of the Day Conor McGregor in his altogether – further evidence of the power of the Body. He joins the nude ranks of Evan Lysacek, Giancarlo StantonMatt Harvey, Oguchi Onyewu, Tomáš Berdych, Greg LouganisBryce Harper, and Kevin Love. Welcome to the Celebrity Skin Jungle.

Mighty Olympic Hunks

Michael Phelps shirtless

It may seem strange to recap the parade of Olympic hunks we’ve been cataloguing here before the 2016 Olympic Games even begin, but that’s how far of ahead of myself I sometimes get. It’s doubtful anyone will mind that much – as the Speedo show has always been greeted with frenzied appreciation. Here we look back at some photos of the Olympians who have doffed shirts and trousers in the name of their sexy sport.

First up is one of the greatest the sport of swimming has ever known: Michael Phelps. He’s been naked here before, but not yet a Hunk of the Day (How?! Why?!) This August he heads to Rio to see if more record-breaking gold awaits his fins.

Second is another Hunk of the pool: Ryan Lochte. A little flashier, a little funnier, and a whole lot more interesting on the superficial level, Mr. Lochte provides a little sass and sauciness to the solemn occasion of the Olympics.

Relative newcomer Steele Johnson has the name of a porn star, and the talent and body of an Olympic diver. Grace and strength, precision and agility – he personifies the best elements of a champion competitor. More of him to come, I’m sure.

Chris Mears may give him a run for his money-maker, however, especially if judging from his Instagram feed. And his naked butt. And the shirtless shot below.

Adam Lambert: The Sexy & Shirtless Show

Adam Lambert gets all shirtless and sexy, while simultaneously a little deep, in his new video and song, ‘Welcome to the Show.’ I can dig it, and would expect nothing less from this two-time Hunk of the Day.

Patriotic Hunk of the Day: John Cena

john cena 100

It took some researching and searching through the archives here (you can do the same in those elusive search engine boxes way at the bottom of this site) but it turns out the John Cena has never been a Hunk of the Day – until now. How such an oversight occurred is beyond me, as Mr. Cena has proven himself remarkably adept at confounding expectations, particularly with his comedic abilities on flagrant display in hits like ‘Trainwreck’ in which he sends up his image and turns it on its head. Forget all of that though – when wrestling is where you entered the pop culture lexicon, you better have a banging body to back it up – and Mr. Cena does. There is no better front to that flag.

Hunk of the Day: Max Ehrich

Max Ehrich

Summer was the time when I got caught up with my soap operas. I was an NBC boy back then – ‘Days of Our Lives,’ ‘Another World.’ and ‘Santa Barbara.’ For a brief moment there was ‘Generations.’ As I got older, I almost migrated to CBS, where ‘The Young and the Restless‘ kept company with ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’ It is on Y&R that our Hunk of the Day is making a splash. Max Ehrich made perhaps his most prominent mark there, but he’s also appeared in my beloved ‘Ugly Betty’ for their third season, as well as ‘Under the Dome.’ Now he’s been named a Hunk of the Day, and nothing will ever be the same.

Tom Hiddleston and Underwear Bulge

Who knew under all of Loki’s armor and long locks lurked such a hot body? Apparently Taylor Swift got the scoop, as she was reportedly canoodling with him on some beach somewhere, because when you’re Taylor Swift that’s how you work I guess. (Bye bye, Calvin Harris – you were but a blip on the underwear-model radar…) As for the man who played Loki, this is Tom Hiddleston – not quite ready for his Hunk of the Day moment until we see if there’s something more here. For now, this is a promising beginning.

Hunk of the Day: Zachary Gordin

Zachary Gordin 099

The costumes are usually spectacular, the staging is often splendid, and the talent is unsurpassed, but I’m still not the biggest fan of opera. That said, I might be swayed should the Hunk of the Day honoree Zachary Gordin be part of the production. His rich voice is about the only thing that surpasses his practically-perfect body, sculpted into opera jock form. But don’t take my mumblings for anything, read through the long list of accomplishments as furnished on his website:

Zachary Gordin is renowned for bringing masterful singing and strong physicality to a wide variety of roles: from baroque heroes, to contemporary works written specifically for him. For his performance of Schumann’s Dichterliebe at the Olympic Music Festival, the Seattle Times hailed him as “a singer already capable of some arresting musical insights. The occasional big effects were commanding and intense without ever descending into coarseness, and the delicacy and tonal allure he brought to the cycle’s preponderance of quiet songs were deeply impressive.” Recent operatic performances include Joseph De Rocher – the convict – in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking with Dayton Opera, Don Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte as a guest artist with the UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro with Visalia Opera Company, Escamillo in Carmen with Diablo Symphony Orchestra and San Francisco Lyric Opera, Silvio in Pagliacci and Monterone in Rigoletto with Sacramento Opera, Aeneas in Dido and Aeneas and El Cantaor in La vida breve with West Bay Opera, Germont in La Traviata with West Bay Opera and Center Stage Opera, Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor with North Bay Opera and Center Stage Opera, and many others.

Equally at home as a soloist on the concert stage, Gordin has performed Monteverdi’s Magnificat with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder with the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony, Brahms’ Requiem and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem with the Oakland Symphony Chorus, Duruflé’s Requiem with the Valley Concert Chorale, Mendelssohn’s Magnificat with the Dominican Winifred Baker Chorale, Schubert’s Mass in E-flat and Psalm 92with the San Francisco Choral Society, Bach’s Cantata #82 “Ich habe genug” and Mozart’s Coronation Masswith the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra, Mozart’s Requiem with the Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra, Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht, Duruflé’s Requiem, and Schubert’s Mass in G with San Francisco City Chorus, Tippett’s A Child of Our Time with the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and Women Sing, and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the Center Stage Opera Orchestra. Upcoming performances include:  Joseph De Rocher in Dead Man Walking with Shreveport Opera.

Gordin has been in high demand as a guest artist with the Oakland East Bay Symphony, where has sung Handel’s Messiah, Fauré’s Requiem, Verdi’s Otello, Kurt Weill’s Street Scene, “A Night at the Opera”, as well as Orff’s Carmina Burana, for which Maestro Michael Morgan writes “Zachary Gordin is the ideal baritone for Carmina Burana. In addition to having a very full, powerful baritone, this is the best singing of the high, sensual music that I have ever heard. This is as good a rendering of those solos as one is ever likely to encounter.” As Carmina Burana has become a signature piece, over the past few seasons he has reprised this demanding role in performances with the YOSA Philharmonic and San Antonio Choral Society, Pacific Shores Philharmonic, Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra, the Santa Clara Chorale, the Choral Project, the UC Berkeley Choruses, and others. Recent premieres of works written for him have included “Constant Fever” by Sheli Nan, The Myth of Kurva by Loretta Notareschi, and “A Nation Announcing Itself” by Clint Borzoni for the Sacramento Pride Gala “Courage to Stand”.

Gordin’s talent has been recognized as a winner of prestigious vocal competitions, including: the Pacific Musical Society Competition, East Bay Opera League Vocal Competition, Bellini International Voice Competition, and the Ibla Grand Prize Baroque Music Competition. He was the recipient of the Irene Patti Swartz Encouragement Award for the Florida Grand Opera National Voice Competition, and Grantee of the Vocal Arts Foundation in San Francisco.  He was also World Finalist for the Academia at Teatro alla Scala, Regional Finalist for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and the youngest candidate selected for the ORFEO 2000 World Competition of International Finalists hosted by Hannover Staatsoper. In addition to his performance calendar, Gordin maintains an active schedule training singers, and presenting workshops and master classes for opera companies and universities throughout the US.

Hunk of the Day: Jake Shears, Shorn Again

jake shears nude 001

Certain Hunks are so multi-faceted and sumptuously-gifted that one post as Hunk of the Day is not enough. Jake Shears is one of those illustrious gentleman, whose talent and skills are matched only by a body borne from hard work and dedication. His work as singer and song-writer has gone rather underappreciated – every single Scissor Sisters album has been genius – but those of us who know and adore him don’t mind that the collective masses have not yet caught on. More for the refined of us. His first Hunk of the Day feature showcased him a few years ago – this one shows you how far he has come.

Though it was released a few years ago, I’m newly-infatuated with their latest (last?) ‘Magic Hour’ album. ‘Inevitable’ is the theme for summer…

Hunk of the Day: David Henrie

david henrie 101

Anyone born after Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer’ was released is way too young for my taste, but millions would disagree, so here’s your Hunk of the Day, youngster David Henrie. What he may lack in years he more than makes up for in multi-hyphenates: actor, television writer, director and producer – this guy does it all. Maybe all is not lost on the youth. Here’s to the next generation of hunks.

Hunk of the Day: Nick Tortorella

nick tortorella 101

A Hunk by any other name… is Nico Tortorella. Since it’s the one and same Nick Tortorella, this is officially his second Hunk of the Day honor, which makes him prime beefcake in these parts. His first Hunk of the Day feature sizzled, but this one absolutely burns, with photos from a calendar he did. More Hunks should do calendars like this. We all need to keep track of the days… and months.

Midnight Bonus: Sergey Lazarev

Sergey Lazarev 101

While not an official Hunk of the Day (those slots have been filled for yesterday and today), this collection of photos of Sergey Lazarev are just a bonus for the loyal among you who have visited tonight. Mr. Lazarev, recent competitor on Eurovision, is currently embroiled in a minor controversy for some soft-porn pics from his past. Yawn. Who isn’t…?

Hunk of the Day: Zayn Malik

zayn malik 097

It’s been a while since I was into any boybands (a sigh is elicited with fond memories of the Backstreet Boys and ’NSync) and at this point I’m really too uninterested to get into that sort of thing. That said, there will always be teenyboppers who are seeking the next group of guys on which to crush and obsess, so for the new generation I give you Hunk of the Day Zayn Malik, who was, until relatively recently, a member of One Direction. I believe he’s going solo next, and with a girlfriend like Gigi Hadid, what use does he have for boyband obligations anyway? I enjoyed his recent splash at the Met Gala (he took the ‘Manus x Machina’ theme to bold heights, something I always appreciate, especially because most of the men play it safe in boring tuxedoes). Of course, there’s probably something more compelling about Zayn Malik shirtless, so those photos follow.

Broadway Men Baring Their Bodies

Broadway is gearing up for the most wonderful time of the year. Not the Tony nominations, but the Broadway Bares benefit. That’s when all the spectacularly-fit specimens doff their clothes for an evening of racy fun to benefit Broadway Cares. In joyful anticipation of this, we should have a few Broadway Hunks coming up in the next few weeks, but first, a look back at some memorable triple-threats who have been named Hunk of the Day. (I won’t rule out a repeat either, especially if you ask nicely.)

Hunk of the Day: Ray Quinn

English actor, singer and dancer Ray Quinn occupies the Hunk of the Day spotlight, thanks to his pumped up pecs following his ‘X Factor’ splash. I love seeing transformations, especially when such hard work is clearly involved. Notice I said I loved seeing them. Doing it all is a totally different story, and it’s not mine.
