With the 44th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships taking place this week in Antwerp, Belgium, I figured it would make sense to put the spotlight on one of the many handsome and chiseled competitors. Some of them we’ve already featured before, but one gymnast that hasn’t been highlighted in a Sports Stud is Russia’s David Belyavskiy. That being said, he was listed in our 15 Hottest Male Gymnasts at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Earlier this week in qualifications, David Belyavskiy had a bit of trouble on his first two apparatuses, the Parallel Bars and the Horizontal Bar, but then stepped things up on the Floor and Pommel Horse. He was able to secure a 14th overall placing to solidify his spot in the finals which are taking place this weekend. Belyavskiy is the 2013 European All-around champion.
Check out some of his photos below as well as some of the videos from the competition earlier this week. Enjoy!
Personally, I love me a gingy. I find freckles extremely adorable. If you’re not a fan of redheads, I bet this new exhibit in London’s East End will change your mind. Prince Harry has nothing on these sexy British gingers. Photographer Thomas Knights teams up with the Anti Bullying Alliance in hopes of presenting the redheaded male as the ‘ultimate’ alpha male and sex up their overall image. This season, red is the new black.
In the UK and throughout the world, being ginger and male comes with many stigmas attached. Many are bullied at school and for some, even later in life.
As far as I can see, no one has focused (or noticed) the huge, polarised gap between the way our society perceives red headed women (often the ultimate woman – think Jessica Rabbit) and red headed males (often emasculated and de-sexulised in film and TV – no Hollywood heroes – no leading men).
No other hair colour has this level of gender inequality in any society, and RED HOT holds a mirror up to the preconceived limitations we put on the red headed males.
Essentially, what I’m doing is creating an exciting and revealing exhibition showcasing a positive outlook on the red-haired male, and aiming to re-brand the ginger male stereotype along the way. – Thomas Knights
Obviously being a ginger himself, Conan O’Brien felt slightly slighted that he wasn’t included in the Red Hot exhibit. For one, he’s not British and secondly, I dare you to say you’d rather with Conan than any of the following guys. Check out the army of sexy redheads below. They range from strawberry to full on crimson. Be sure to state which one you find the hottest in our comments section afterward.
Earlier this week, Britney Spears debuted her new music video for “Work Bitch” and it featured the incredibly sexy, Richie Nuzzolese. As shown him above, you may recognize him from Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night” music video, among other things like the “Dirty Laundry” Andrew Christian video and more. We’ve also previously featured him in a Model Behavior post.
Aside from the music video, Nuzzolese is working on a YouTube project with some friends and is working on his own music. He’s posted a few covers on line and is busy recording his own original stuff as well. Other things you might recognize him from is a Renuzit commercial and if you watch the E! Network, he’s the guy promoting the Ross Matthews talk show.
Check out a bunch of videos as well as some exclusive never before released photos of the hottie below. Enjoy!
They’re bringing dirty back. Nope, not that Christina Aguilera type of dirty. That has about three extra “r’s”. Rather, good old fashioned mud on bare chest type of dirty. My favorite type.
Dieux Du Stade returns for a fourteenth year to feature professional rugby players in their naked glory. Once again, photographer Fred Goudon was chosen for this, arguably the best gig in the entire world. How does one apply to be an assistant for Mr. Goudon? Sign me up.
Some of the studs featured in this year’s calendar include Oliver Giroud, Jules Plisson, Djibril Camara, Nikola Karabatic, Clement Daguin, Hugo Bonneval and Alexandre Flanquart. Check out a slightly NSFW video preview below, along with some pics. I can’t wait for the outtakes and for all the money shots and by that, I mean peen ones ;)
It’s been three years since Tyrell ranked the Dancing With The Stars‘ male professional dancers. Since several new pro hotties have joined the ABC dancing competition since, I thought it was time to reevaluate his rankings. Also, everyone has their own personal tastes and I wanted to share mine. If you’ve been reading the site for awhile now, I’m pretty sure you have an idea who top ballroom dog is in my book. Check out the studs below and be sure to sound off on my choices.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosed to highlight 23-year old Brett Lawrie. This tattooed hottie is a third baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays. He was also named to Canada’s 2013 World Baseball Classic team but unfortunately could not play due to an injury. Last night, the Toronto Blue Jays defeated Tampa Bay Rays 6-3, putting an end to their seven-game winning streak.
Although he plays for Toronto, he’s actually originally from Langley, B.C., which is only about 40 minutes from Vancouver (where I am). Last year, Lawrie did a promotional campaign for Spitz Canada which involved answering some questions for fans so they can get to know him better. I’ve included these videos below along with several photos (including his incredible abs).
For eight years, the Men In The Alps calendar has raised funds for AIDS charities totaling over $140,000. We’re fans of the 2013 edition ourselves. Sadly though, this year will be the last one. Blasphemy.
If you have a fetish for men wearing lederhosen while posing in the Italian, Austrian and Bavarian Alps, you better snatch up the 2014 one before they run out. Check out several months below, along with a promo video where the men lip sync to Michael Bublè. Yodel-Le-He-Hoo!
With the Fall television season in full swing, I thought it was a perfect time to highlight some of the new eye candy. Two of the new freshman shows I checked out this week were Crazy Ones and Lucky 7. I don’t know about you, but I always get James Wolk and Matt Long mixed up. So much so, when my partner asked me where he recognized one of them, I listed off the other actor’s credits. Am I the only one who confuses the two?
I first noticed James Wolk when he starred in FOX’s ill-fated Lone Star. Thankfully, the 28-year-old rebounded from that embarrassment with memorable roles on both the small and silver screen. His television credits include Political Animals, Mad Men and Happy Endings where he engaged in man-on-man action. On the big screen, he co-starred with his Political Animals co-star Sigourney Weaver in You Again. The Michigan-born stud now stars in the CBS comedy, Crazy Ones.
Though more baby faced, Matt Long is actually older than Wolk and 33-years-old. Long burst onto the scene in the WB’s Jack and Bobby. Like Wolk, he’s also appeared on Mad Men. Perhaps that’s why I interchange the two often. His other television appearances include Love Bites, The Newsroom and Private Practice. His biggest film credit involved co-starring with a then-sane Amanda Bynes in Sydney White. Matt is currently starring in ABC’s new drama, Lucky 7.
Now that you know a bit about each actor, it’s time to get to the goods. And by that I mean shirtless pics. Check out the studs below and be sure to cast your vote on Who’d You Rather after inspecting their assets.
