Alright, this week I’ve decided to highlight another athlete from CrossFit and actually a past winner of of the Reebok CrossFit Games, earning the title of Fittest Man On Earth in 2009. CrossFit is described as “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement”. With what Salo does for a living, it couldn’t be more true. When he’s not doing CrossFit, Mikko Salo of Finland is actually a firefighter – which as you know is a very dangerous and physically demanding job.
Salo (33 yrs old) has been a CrossFit idol for many people since he dominated the 2009 Crossfit Games. He is competing again this year and may people believe he has the potential to claim the title once again. I’ve been doing CrossFit since January and it’s one of my favorite things in my life right now. What Salo is able to do is pretty freaking incredible. Aside from Salo’s impressive accomplishments, he’s a very handsome guy, obviously has a great body, and is overall very easy on the eyes.
I’ve included several photos below as well as a few videos of him in action. In fact, one of the videos is actually a documentary on him if you have the time to check it out. Enjoy!
Before Henry Cavill burns up theater screens as the latest Superman in Man of Steel, I thought I’d highlight one of the hottest men ever to don the superhero costume. Not going to lie, Tom Welling is definitely my type and I can’t believe it took me this long to feature him in my Man Crush series. If you thought the Smallville actor was cute back in the day, he’s even hotter today. The slight salt-and-pepper buzz cut really works for him. WOOF.
Welling was born in Upstate New York. Before landing his breakout role in the WB series, the 36-year-old actor guest starred in Judging Amy and Undeclared. He’s appeared in the Cheaper By The Dozen films and the 2005 remake of The Fog. Since Smallville ended, Tom tried his hand behind the scenes. He executive produced the short lived cheerleading series, Hellcats.
He’ll return to the big screen later this year, appearing with Zac Efron and Paul Giamatti in Parkland. The Tom Hanks-produced film follows the events that occurred at Parkland Memorial Hospital after JFK’s assassination. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in November 2013 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the historic event. Check out photos of Welling then and now below.
Kirill Dowidoff must be generating solid business for ES Collection. Once again, the Spanish swimwear and underwear brand has tapped the Russian model to show off their designs. I’m sure even if his photos didn’t translate to revenue dollars, they still would use him. The guy is damn HOT. Definitely one of my favorite Model Behavior studs I’ve ever featured on Homorazzi.
Joined by fellow Ruskie Vladimir, the two goof around in the kitchen. I’m sure food isn’t the only thing being buttered and stuffed in the kitchen. I don’t enjoy cooking all that much, but I might have to consider changing my stance on that if I had Kirill as my cooking buddy to prepare delicious meals. Given how tasty both men are, it’s only fitting the name of ES Collection’s new offering is Gourmet. Check out the promo images below.

Not going to lie. I picked Karlo Faggetter as this week’s Model Behavior pick mostly because of his last name. Sure, he’s one handsome guy, but it’s all about that surname. How awesome is it?
British-born Faggetter is relatively new to the modeling game. He was a finalist in last year’s Elite Model Look Singapore search. Since then he’s been building up his portfolio posing for photographers like Jasmine How and Skye Tan. With regards to the latter, Karlo appeared in an August Man editorial snapped by him. Check out the 6’0″ stud below. I personally think he looks better when he doesn’t straighten his naturally curly hair. See if you agree.
The featured Sports Stud this week is Brady Quinn, backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He only just signed on as the backup to QB to Russell Wilson on April 11 of this year. The handsome football hottie has previously played for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cleveland Browns and the Denver Broncos. Prior to that he played college football for Notre Dame. While there, he graduated with dual degrees in political science and finance.
Brady Quinn is 28 years old, 6’3 and 235 lbs… basically what I’m trying to say is, “Hello to you, big boy ;)” He’s been featured in many magazines, including Men’s Health and I’ve included some of those photos below. Enjoy!
With all the bookings Tomas Skoloudik lands, it’s hard to imagine he once did porn. After seeing his bulge, it’s not surprising the Czech model worked his pole for the camera back in the day. Too bad he didn’t film one now. With his facial scruff and buffer body, he’s far more attractive to me now. If you don’t think so, check out his latest editorial.
Tetu magazine taps the 27-year-old top model to star in an underwear spread photographed by Dean Isidro. Skoloudik wears boxers, briefs, t-shirts and other lounging fare for the French publication. It’s definitely one of my favorite shoots from Tomas. Check it out below.
Apparently I was crush-less in April. I can’t believe I didn’t write a Man Crush post during the entire month. To get back in the saddle (so to speak), I planned on highlighting a completely different stud but since One Life To Live returned back to the airwaves (or should I say online for their relaunch), I thought I’d crush on one of its stars.
Meet Josh Kelly. Not to be confused with Katherine Heigl’s hubby Josh Kelley, this Josh is a buff drink of blond water. Born in Japan, Kelly lived the life of your typical army brat, living in various locations (Guam, Philippines, Maryland, Georgia, Maine) during his childhood. After graduating high school, he followed in his father’s footsteps and enlisted in the Army where he served three tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.
Before landing the role of Cutter Wentworth on One Life To Live, the 31-year-old actor played bit roles on Ugly Betty, True Blood, Army Wives and Rizzoli and Isles to name a few. He made the leap to the silver screen when Michael Bay cast him in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. Josh returned for Transformers: Dark of the Moon where he appeared in front of the camera and served as a military consultant after Bay saw his post-traumatic stress short film, Cope. Check out this stud below in all his glory. You’ll never guess which former Jersey Shore star he’s acting with on OLTL.
To clip or not to clip? That is the question. I find myself also facing that dilemma right now. With the hot summer days fast approaching, I’m tempted to shave off all my hair. I’d miss my samurai pony though ;) And also, not sure I can rock a shaved head like Parker Hurley. Not many can, truth be told. With his toned and heavily-inked body, the stunner is one of the more popular guys I’ve featured in my Model Behavior series.
Parker’s hair transformation was recorded for Mr. Turk to show off their line of swimwear. Check Hurley sporting a couple of different hairstyles on his way to a sexy shaved ‘do. All in the name of fashion and a pay check (obviously). Enjoy.
