Last year, my first annual Man Crush Showdown proved so popular, I thought I’d do the same for my Model Behavior feature this year. Model Behavior was born to give our readers more opportunities to ogle at hot shirtless men. For this feature, I specifically just focus on male models. From high fashion, to swimwear to fitness models, I try to include all facets of the modeling industry. This new feature was met with resounding success. In some instances, the spin-off has surpassed my popular Man Crush series. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise since these guys are paid to strip down and show off their toned physiques and photogenic mugs.

Since I started Model Behavior late in 2010, it felt silly last year to have a battle with only the handful that I featured by year’s end. Not wanting them to feel left out, I decided to include them in our first annual Model Behavior showdown. I divided the eligible models into three rounds. This week will feature hotties from October 2010 to the end of February 2011.

The two models who garner the most votes will automatically earn a spot in the finals. Then, when all three rounds are completed, I’ll look through all three rounds and pick the next four highest vote-getters to round out the Top 10 who’ll battle it out for model supremacy for 2011. Without further ado, let’s look at the candidates vying for the top two spots in Round 1.

James Besteman

Original Feature: Oct 26, 2010

Why I Chose Him: What better way to kick off the new feature than with an Abercrombie & Fitch model. Their clothes may be over-priced and clichéd but there’s no denying their models are walking sex dreams.

Bernardo Velasco

Original Feature: Nov 2, 2010

Why I Chose Him: Since my first pick was a boy-next-door type, I wanted a spicy Brazilian to spice things up.

Jeff Tomsik

Original Feature: Nov 9, 2010

Why I Chose Him: That smile is undeniably adorable. A few of the comments made by our readers claimed he looked like my BF, Brian. Perhaps I subconsciously chose his doppelgänger.

Thomas Ivasaki

Original Feature: Nov 16, 2010

Why I Chose Him: Those lips would make half the collagen-addicted Real Housewives of Beverly Hills jealous.

Jamie Dornan

Original Feature: Nov 30, 2010

Why I Chose Him: I wanted to pick a bona fide male model who worked in huge ad campaigns and appeared in major magazine editorials. Plus, who doesn’t love a hot Irishman. He’s definitely got a pot of gold at the end of his rainbow.

Caleb Halstead

Original Feature: Dec 7, 2010

Why I Chose Him: He reminded me of a young Josh Harnett. Whatever happened to him?

Brock Yurich

Original Feature: Dec 14, 2010

Why I Chose Him: I was a little horny and wanted a muscle beefcake fitness model this week. Brock fills that part in all the right places and then some.

Parker Gregory

Original Feature: Dec 21, 2010

Why I Chose Him: I’m a sucker for a guy who can pull off long wavy curly hair. More to grab on to. It doesn’t hurt that he looks sexy with his shirt off.

Jed Hill

Original Feature: Dec 28, 2010

Why I Chose Him: It was close to New Year’s and I was pondering what resolutions to make (and fail at). One of them was going to the gym and Jed was supposed to provide me inspiration. Sadly, his hotness just motivated me to look for more pictures of him than hitting the weights.

Joshua Yajcaji

Original Feature: Jan 4, 2011

Why I Chose Him: He has that bad boy edge and mysterious look in his eyes. Plus that bull tattoo was kinda hot.

Adam Senn

Original Feature: Jan 12, 2011

Why I Chose Him: I had a slight crush on him during his time on the first season of “The City”. Also, I had just finished watching an episode of “Law & Order: SVU” that he guest starred in that week.

Benjamin Godfre

Original Feature: Jan 18, 2011

Why I Chose Him: I was feeling a tad horny and his juicy bubble butt sealed the deal. He’s equally as impressive from the front. Google for his nude pics. Ya’ll won’t be disappointed.

Jeremy Simpson

Original Feature: Jan 25, 2011

Why I Chose Him: He looked like the love child of Josh Hartnett and James Marsden. Plus he’s got some nice suckable nips on him.

Andrew Stetson

Original Feature: Feb 1, 2011

Why I Chose Him: Those piercing eyes, those abs and that very visible penis line. It’s almost unfair that one man has so much hotness.

Allen Walker

Original Feature: Feb 8, 2011

Why I Chose Him: The picture of him holding a pair of jeans covering his naughty bits was a compelling case to feature him.

Markus Ricci

Original Feature: Feb 15, 2011

Why I Chose Him: Once again, I and you, were in the mood for some good old-fashioned grade A beef. It probably takes a truckload of protein to keep this body looking this way.

Zeb Ringle

Original Feature: Feb 22, 2011

Why I Chose Him: There was something about his porn mustache that drew me in. Plus, he’s got some decent-sized “headlights”.
