This week’s Man Crush was so hot, two of us were fighting over him. LOL. Here’s the story. Both Tyrell and I noticed Chris Powell while watching “Dancing With The Stars” at our respective condos. Powell was in attendance to promote his upcoming show on ABC, “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition“. The second I laid my eyes on him, I knew he was going to be this week’s Man Crush. Tyrell was also smitten and started a draft titled, “Meet Chris Powell”. Immediately, I texted him to let him know he beat me to the punch. We jokingly fought over him and Tyrell was gracious enough to let me have him ;)
I thought Bob Harper from “The Biggest Loser” was cute, but Chris Powell has me saying, Bob who??? As mentioned before, Chris will be one of the featured trainers on ABC’s new weight loss reality show. He’ll guide participants through their transformations by moving into their homes. By assuring that they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, he provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight.
“The human body is an amazing machine that we can transform naturally,” Chris says. “I have devoted my being to developing innovative lifestyles and tools to enrich the lives of others, and each life changed has been a remarkable gift.”
Powell first gained national attention when he helped an obese David Smith lose 401 lbs in 26 months for a TLC special, “The 650-pound Virgin“. He parlayed that exposure into appearances on other national shows like “The Oprah Winfrey Show“, “20/20“, and “The View“. For those of you out there wondering what his relationship status is, unfortunately, he’s married with children. Be sure to catch all of Chris’ hotness when “Extreme Makeover: Weight Lose Edition” premieres on ABC on May 30, 2011.
ABC pimping him out to promote “Extreme Makeover: Weight Lose Edition”. With him as the face of the new reality show, I expect big ratings.
Stills from the first episode. Hotter with clothes or without?
Aloha Chris. Peek-a-boo, I see you.
He’s built like a brick house. I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll “blow” his house down.
Looking sexy poolside.
Ay caramba!!! Caliente. The smile. The chest. It’s too much for me to handle.
Why so serious? Maybe he’s practicing his Zoolander look.
Looking mischievious SLASH sexy in front of a webcam. Such pretty eyes.
