“The battle begins between Ragnar and Rollo. This Viking clash pits brother against brother and there can only be one victor,” states the official synopsis for Vikings Season 2. These two Nordic bros have nothing on Cain and Abel in the sibling rivalry department. Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) engages in an epic battle with his brother, Rollo (Clive Standen), because he’s aligned himself with his enemy, Jarl Borg (Thorbjorn Harr).
In February 2014, History Channel brings back Vikings after a successful maiden voyage. It premiered with over 6 million viewers and averaged 4.3 million viewers throughout the season. As if Fimmel and Standen weren’t enough eye candy, Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) joins the cast as Bjorn, Ragnar’s son. Also joining Vikings this season is Linus Roache (Law & Order) as Ecbert, King of Wessex. Check out a shirtless photo of Standen below as he prepares himself for battle.
Caio César. Yes, please. I first noticed him years ago when he was featured for Terra’s The Boy. What a difference several years make. He’s gotten beefier and scruffier in all the right places. The Brazilian stud shows off his raw magnetism in a sensual editorial for Made In Brazil #7.
Check out more photos snapped by Greg Vaughan below. I warn you now. You might be tempted to purchase a plane ticket to Rio to stalk him. I know I’m contemplating it.
You had to have known this post was coming. The second I saw Britney Spears’ “Perfume” clip, I knew Alexander Kjellevik was my next Model Behavior post. The Norwegian’s abs were the star of that clip. Even Spears’ most die-hard fans have to agree with that.
The 28-year-old debuted as a model during the Spring/Summer 2010 season, marching for Gianni Versace. The green-eyed stunner followed that up by working with major brands including Etro, Armani, Ermanno Scervino, John Varvatos and Iceberg. His editorial work include appearances in Maxim Italy and Kurv Magazine. Currently, he’s represented by Request Model Management NY (New York), NEVS (London) and Traffic Models (Barcelona).
He reminds me of Swedish supermodel Marcus Schenkenberg during his 90s hey day. There must be something in the water in that part of the world. For all you porn aficionados, he bears a striking resemblance to Randy Blue’s Malachi Marx. Don’t you think? Check out more of the Scandinavian stud below and weigh in afterward.
Before I get to the extremely skimpy underwear styles from Petit Q, can we briefly talk about Colby Melvin and Brandon Brown. This real-life couple certainly get around, don’t they, especially Melvin. Is there an underwear brand he hasn’t modeled for? Clearly, his assets are an asset for underwear labels. Not that I’m complaining. I’d sit front row at any fashion show he’s walking in. Up close and personal you know, just to check out the merchandise (clothing) ;)
Petit Q underwear claim they’re the smallest underwear in the game and I have to agree. Some of their styles defy gravity. I’m stupefied at how their one-side thong, c-string and kini offer any support. It truly is remarkable.
The company enlisted Melvin, Brown along with Jose Parra and Brent Corrigan to show off their sexy line. Check out the censored and uncensored versions below. As much as I like seeing T&A, I actually prefer the SFW clip. It features the boys modeling the barely-there undergarments on the streets of West Hollywood. The reactions of onlookers are priceless. Check out both videos below.
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen to highlight a Winter Olympic Hottie that we surprisingly haven’t featured yet… the handsome Steve Nyman.
Nyman is a 31-year old World Cup alpine ski racer on the U.S. Team. He used to be a slalom skier, but now competes mainly in downhill, super G, and combined. Nyman competed in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Nagano, as well as the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver where he came in 20th in men’s downhill. The 6’4 Park City, Utah resident
Nyman is looking to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Socci this February. Check out his sexy photos below and watch for him at the games!
Initially, Alan Ritchson auditioned for the role of Finnick which eventually went to Sam Claflin. A couple of months after not hearing from the casting director, he received an offer to play Gloss. If you’ve seen The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, much to his fans’ dismay, he’s barely featured. Even more disheartening is the fact producers didn’t utilize that ripped eight-pack of his. Luckily for us, Da Man had no problem exploiting his natural assets.
The 29-year-old former American Idol hopeful poses for a stylish and sizzling editorial in Da Man’s latest issue snapped by Mitchell Nguyen McCormack. Ritchson can next be seen in Michael Bay’s upcoming big budget Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where he plays Raphael. Given that he’s a turtle, I’m pretty sure, once again, moviegoers will be deprived of his toned physique on the big screen. Better get your fill from the pictures below.
“I’d be lying if I say genetics don’t play some part of that, but at the same time, I think people take for granted how hard it is to achieve any kind of success. I do work really hard, I work out five days a week and I’m very disciplined about my regimen. I focus on cardio; it’s the foundation of my workout. The best of me is poured into that and the rest of it goes into resistance training. If anyone wants to get ripped, I recommend sprint training.”
I thought I’d do something I haven’t done for this week’s Sport Stud post and that is featuring a motorcycle racer. This week’s sports stud is the handsome motorcycle racer Randy de Puniet. The 32-year-old is a French Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. He is currently racing for the Power Electronics Aspar team in MotoGP (having raced in this class regularly since 2006). Previously, he took five wins in the 250cc class before he moved to the main class.
With his chiseled body and handsome good looks, he’s made his way into many magazines and has some sexy shirtless photos as a result. I never would of thought I’d be able to find shirtless photos of a motorcycle racer given how much clothing they wear, but alas I was wrong!
Check out some great photos of Randy de Puniet below!
Since I resurrected my Model Behavior series this week, I thought I’d do the same for my Man Crush feature. For my return, I picked the best thing about Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Let’s face it, the only redeeming part of that hot mess is Agent Grand Ward played by Brett Dalton. I will say though, the past couple episodes have gotten marginally better.
Dalton was born in San Jose, California. He attended both University of California, Berkeley and Yale where he received an undergraduate degree and Master of Fine Arts degree respectively. Hot body and brains to boot. Sign me up. Before landing a series regular gig on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the 31-year-old appeared in episodes of Army Wives and Blue Bloods. He’ll next appear in Chris Lowell’s (Veronica Mars) directorial debut, Beside Still Waters.
If you haven’t watched him on the ABC series, check out his best (ahem shirtless) scenes below, along with several photos. Let me know if you think Brett is crushworthy in the comments section.
