If you’d rather have hunky firefighters greeting you everyday on your cubicle wall instead of Kylie Minogue, then this calendar is for you. For the fifth year in a row, heroic firemen from the Midwest go shirtless to raise funds for Children’s Cancer Research. Plenty of corn-fed hotties here.
Whether you like your men, tatted up, older, younger or hairy, the calendar has a guy for you. Check out a few of the guys below along with a brief bio. Be sure to weigh in afterward on which stud you want to rescue you from a burning building.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve decided to feature a handsome Canadian athlete and filmmaker named Rory Bushfield. The 30-year old is a former member of Canada’s World Cup team, skiing moguls. Prior to that, he also competed in slopestyle skiing before he later began focusing on backcountry skiing and filmmaking.
Bushfield was married to freeskier Sarah Burke and the two got married in Pemberton, B.C. on September 25, 2010. Burke was a four-time gold medalist at the Winter X Games and won the world championship in halfpipe in 2005. Sadley, she died after a training accident in Utah on January 19, 2012.
Earlier this year, Bushfield competed on a celebrity reality diving competition show called Splash on ABC. On May 7, 2013, the Squamish, B.C. resident ended up winning the whole competition! When interviewed for the show, Bushfield had this to say about his late wife: “My life’s changed drastically,” Rory says choking up. “I lost my wife. I had it all. I still have a lot. I’m thankful for everything I have, but I had it all.” He added, “Sarah was my dream girl before she knew who I was,” he says. “A lot of the craziest things I ever did were just kind of to impress Sarah.” I can’t imagine what that must be like. Wishing Rory the best with whatever new opportunities are ahead of him! Check out some photos of the handsome adventure-seeker below.
Despite having LGBT celebrities on both Dancing With The Stars or its UK counterpart, Strictly Come Dancing, there has never been a same-sex pairing. Shame on all of you :) This year, it almost happened if one celebrity had their wish and ironically it didn’t involve a gay contestant, but rather a hunky straight ally.
Ben Cohen has been an avid supporter of LGBT rights for many years. The married dad of two kids has shown off his sexy hairy body for gay publications and spoken out at numerous events. His efforts earned him a spot as one of the first inductees in the Gay & Lesbian Hall of Fame earlier this year.
The 34-year-old rugby player reveals to the Mirror that he had hoped to be paired with male professional dancer Robin Windsor. Instead, he was given a leggy blonde named Kristina Rihanoff. “I’ve no qualms dancing with a woman or a man. Kristina will be easier to pick up though.” He added, “I like to break down stereotypes.” Check out shirtless pics of Ben’s preferred partner below, along with pics of him as well.
Even though they’re not promoting their swimwear or underwear line, teamm8 still finds ways to have their models go shirtless in their new ad campaign. They’re still keeping things sexy. AMEN!!! The Aussie brand heads to the courts to promote their athletic Sport Line.
Shot and directed by James Demitri, the visual features models Adrien Kute, Jesse Lombardo and Thomas Mezger getting all sweaty while playing a little hoops. I wonder what the winner gets ;) Check out the boys display sportsmanship, athleticism and most importantly… their well-defined torsos below.
Scott Eastwood reveals to Town & Country in their October 2013 issue that he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps. With several movies on the way including Fury with Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf, The Perfect Wave and Dawn Patrol, he’s very well on his way. His rugged good looks don’t hurt either. Dare I say it, but I think Clint’s 27-year-old son is hotter than the Hollywood legend ever was even during his Dirty Harry days.
Even though, he’s appeared with his dad in Flags of Our Fathers, Gran Torino and Trouble with the Curve, he insists he’s paid his dues like everyone else. Yeah, right *wink*. “People assumed that I would have everything handed to me, but that couldn’t be further from the truth,” he said, revealing he’s bartended, worked construction and valeted cars. “I was on my own just doing the grind.”
With a modeling past which includes an Abercrombie & Fitch stint, Scott is a natural in front of the camera for photographer Noe Dewitt. Check out his nautical-themed spread for the lifestyle publication below. I’d go cruising with him anytime ;)
When Arrow debuted last season, Stephen Amell carried the weight of the show on his muscular shoulders on his own. For the show’s sophomore year, the network is alleviating the pressure on Amell and spreading the shirtless promotional duties to the other male actors on the superhero show.
Much like what Lionsgate did when they released the Capital Portraits for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The CW debuted their new batch of promo pics on several media outlets. Amell’s photo popped up on TVLine.com, while Manu Bennett appeared on Acccess Hollywood. Both Colton Haynes and David Ramsey showed off their hard work at the gym over at E! networks.
Check out the boys in all their topless glory below. Be sure to weigh in afterward on who has a career with the Chippendales should their day job fall through.
With a new season of NHL hockey fast approaching, this week’s Sports Stud is a Canadian hockey player who plays for and is captain of the Chicago Blackhawks. His name is Jonathan Toews, he’s 25-years-old, 6’2″ and originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He won Stanley Cup in 2010 along with the Conn Smythe Trophy for the playoff MVP. After winning the Cup, Toews passed Peter Forsberg as the youngest player to join the Triple Gold Club. He won the Stanley Cup again in 2013. He also competed with Team Canada in the 2010 Olympics where he was named Best Forward for the tournament and where, as you know, Canada won the Gold Medal. His salary in 2012 was $6 million USD. Back in 2010 when Toews brought the Stanley Cup back to his home town of Winnipeg, the province of Manitoba announced that they would be naming a northern lake after Toews in honour of his success. It’s located 150 km north of Flin Flon and is named Toews Lake.
With the Socci 2014 Winter Olympics coming around the corner, Toews says has been keeping informed about the controversial anti-gay laws in Russia and the potential boycott of the games. Toews told TSN, “I don’t think they’re buying themselves any friends [with the laws] by any means, and I think, obviously, a lot of people are disappointed by the attitude they’ve had in Russia,” says Toews. “I still think it’s important to go there and represent your country. You don’t have to necessarily believe all the laws that they’ve instilled in Russia right, so I definitely don’t stand behind it.” Toews hopes that fans and athletes alike can find other ways to speak their minds and voice their displeasure outside of boycotting. “I’m sure that there a lot of other ways that people can express their disagreement with the anti-gay laws in Russia right now and there will be ways to do that,” said Toews. “I’m open to that, but I don’t think that not going to the Games is the solution because it’s a disappointment for everyone else.”
With an invitation like that, how can anyone refuse. The 31-year-old English pro rugby player just oozes sex on the cover of Gay Times magazine. From his very visible penis line to his massive guns, every part of Stuart Reardon deserves a bit of worshiping ;) Not only is he comfortable showing off his body for the gays, he’s also a big LGBT supporter. Check out his thoughts on Russia’s anti-gay laws and the upcoming Winter Olympics.
“What’s happened over there is disgusting. But if you’ve been training for the last four years and you’re in a position where you could win a medal, you’re going to want to compete aren’t you? If I was a gay athlete I think it would send a stronger message to go. Being in the public eye, you have a wider opportunity to voice your opinion to a wider audience and send a positive message. That would make more of an impact than boycotting.” – Stuart Reardon
