After a few weeks of choosing beefy men as my weekly crush, I was in the mood for a little “chicken”. Ironically enough, this week’s crush worked as the Red Robin Mascot in high school. This week’s hottie is definitely legal but a little on the twinky side. I’m sure all you twink lovers will be loving Colton Haynes.

The Kansas born looker first started his modeling career at the age of 15. When Bruce Weber shot him for an Abercrombie & Fitch layout, his career skyrocketed. He was featured in campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Kira Plastinina, JC Penny and even appeared in various fashion shows for a couple of episodes of “The Hills“.

Like most models, the 21-year-old caught the acting bug and began working on his craft. His first foray into acting was an uncredited appearance in the blockbuster “Transformers“. Soon after, he began to book guest starring roles in “Privileged“, “Pushing Daisies” and “Melrose Place“. Eeks, looks like he might be the kiss of death. All those shows have all been canceled. Hopefully he’ll have better luck with his new gig.

Colton has a lead role in ABC’s new summer vampire offering “The Gates“. He plays Brett Crezski, a jock who also is a werewolf- of course he is. Lately all these hot guys I’m attracted to, are werewolves (Taylor Lautner & Joe Manganiello). I guess I have a type.

If “The Gates” doesn’t find an audience this summer, he has a couple of roles to fall back on. He won the role of Shane in Showtime’s “Look” and Jackson on MTV’s “Teen Wolf”. Both are set to premiere this year. Here’s a little fun fact about Haynes. In 2007, he unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Edward Cullen which eventually went to Robert Pattinson.

So the million dollar question. Is he gay or straight? Based on his name, I would say YES. Can that name be any gayer? Truth be told, I’m not sure. There are reports that he’s straight but he’s also been caught in gay lip locks and hangs with Chace Crawford a lot. Who knows, and to be perfectly honest, as long as he keeps looking foinnnnnne, I don’t care. He’s so hot, my mind just goes blank and I get lost in my own little naughty fantasies.

I’m insanely in love with his freckles around his nose. They’re absolutely adorable.

He’s sporting a little “gay face” in this pic. Mystery solved?

I wonder what’s on his mind? Is he trying to seduce me by playing with his fingers on his lips? If he is… it worked.

I love this pic. It’s got that ol skool California surfer vintage look about it. And the fact his shirt is open, giving a hint of sex doesn’t hurt either.

Here’s a snapshot of Chace Crawford and Colton hanging by the pool in Miami. Both hotties modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch back in the day.

Apparently he can move both of his eyebrows up and down, wiggle his ears, and make really ugly faces. I can’t ever imagine he’d be capable of making ugly faces, because all I see here is PRETTY.

In this still from “The Gates”, he looks like a farm boy. Ironically enough, he grew up in a farm in Kansas. What is about those corn-fed boys that make them all hot.

Those lips look absolutely heavenly. I could list a million dirty things I could do to them. Grrrr.

Another pic from “The Gates”. Honestly it’s not a bad show. I recommend you give it a chance. It beats most of the reality TV we’re forced to watch during the summer.

A little twinky for me, but nonetheless, HOT as SH*T. That lightly marked treasure trail leads to some golden treasure. That I am certain of.

So is Colton Haynes hot? Post your comments and thoughts below.
