This week’s Man Crush is an incredibly hot and talented dancer from Winnipeg, Manitoba here in Canada. His name is Tyrell Witherspoon (like Reese). Although not Legally Blonde, you may in fact recognize him from Season One of So You Think You Can Dance Canada. He made it to the finals in Toronto, but was eliminated in the first round. Two seasons later, with a whole lot more experience, he’s ready to do it again, having gone to the auditions for Season 3 earlier this year in Halifax. Season 3 for So You Think You Can Dance Canada airs Summer 2010.
He’s 23 years old and keeping himself very busy! He currently teaches Hip Hop at Kickit Dance Studio in Winnipeg and picks up other side jobs here and there. These odd jobs include teaching hip hop in gym classes and schools throughout the city, choreographing high school musicals, first dances for weddings, and so on. At the moment, he’s choreographing Hello, Dolly! for a high school just outside of the city and getting ready to head out to Edmonton for 2 months. There, he’ll be apart of Beauty and the Beast at the Citadel Theatre, which runs from May 1st-30th. Yep, there’s more. After that, he will be in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat back in Winnipeg during the summer.
He plays “Captain Awesome” on the NBC spy-hit “Chuck” and that name couldn’t be any more fitting. The 34-year-old blond adonis hails from the Windy City. During his college days at The University of Illinois, he played football which is partially responsible for his hot physique. After graduating, the 6’3″ hottie decided to travel to Australia and New Zealand to explore the outback while determining what career path he should follow. I guess he must’ve seen a sign to dabble in modeling during his time in the Australian Outback .
He received nationwide attention when he scored modeling gigs with Abercrombie and Fitch and various other campaigns. After getting a taste of the limelight, he decided to move to Southern California to pursue acting. His first acting gig was for an episode of “The Nanny” with Fran Drescher. Funny enough, years later he would re-team with Drescher to star in her short-lived sitcom “Living With Fran”. In between those jobs, he paid his dues working in daytime for the now-canceled soap “Passions”.
His name literally means handsome in French. This week I decided to focus my ogling on one of “Desperate Housewives” yummiest male character. Beau Mirchoff plays Danny Bolen, the son of Wisteria Lane’s newest mysterious couple. I always thought he was average cute until his shirtless scene which showcased his slightly hairy chest-grrrrrr.
The 21-year-old American/Canadian actor has also starred in films like Scary Movie 4 and The Grudge 3. Apparently he likes filming sequels. If he ever became a superhero, he could be called “Sequel Boy”. Mirchoff was born in Seattle, Washington but moved to Victoria, BC just two days later. Given his surroundings, Beau became a fan of the outdoors and picked up hobbies like hiking, camping and sea kayaking.
Finally the day has come. The day I can officially crush on Taylor Lautner without feeling like a creepy pedo. Launter officially moved of jail-bait territory yesterday on his 18th birthday. The former martial arts child star set a bunch of teenage girls and gay men’s hearts a-fluttering, when he exposed his chiseled abs for the Twilight sequel.
Taylor’s good looks can be attributed from his multi-ethnic ancestry. According to Wikipedia, he is mostly from Dutch, French and German descent with a bit of Native American. Though most people know him from the Twilight movies and his high-profile romance with ex Taylor Swift, he’s been around the entertainment industry since he was a child.
Since the Grammys are this coming Sunday, I thought I’d select my weekly crush from the music industry. Alternative rock group, Kings of Leon is nominated for four Grammys: Best Rock Song: Record of the Year: Song of the Year: and Best Rock Performance by a Duo of Group with Vocals. Though Kings of Leon share a whole whack of similar DNA- they’re made up of three brothers and one first-cousin- only one of them is truly crushworthy in my books- Anthony Caleb Followill. The 28-year-old frontman for the rock group, more commonly goes by just Caleb. In fact, all the band members go by their middle names as opposed to their first- it’s a family tradition.
Caleb spent a majority of his childhood roaming around the Southern United States with his father who was a traveling Pentecostal preacher. When his father resigned from the church, they moved to Nashville and embraced the rock-and-roll lifestyle they had previously been denied. It was there they formed the band which they named after their father and grandfather- both were named Leon.
This week’s crush comes as a result from my latest TV obsession. Yes, I’m a little late in jumping on the “True Blood” bandwagon, but I’m here now and a proud member of the fan club. Brian and I bought the season one DVDs a couple of weeks ago and finished them in a couple of days. We started the next season just the other night, and I immediately fell in lust with one new regular cast members- Mehcad Brooks.
Two words- YUM-MY. Seriously, this beefy man is total man candy. There was one defining moment on the show that made me forget about the previous resident hottie, Ryan Kwanten. It came when Mehcad’s character was working shirtless in the garden- words cannot describe how sexy he was with his sweaty torso. His love interest, Tara, even commented “I’d take a shower in your sweat if I could”. DITTO with a capital D, I, T, T, O.
Confession time. As of the publish time, I’m probably one of the five people who haven’t seen Avatar yet. That aside, I still can appreciate the hotness that is Sam Worthington. The Australian hottie is making it big in Hollywood after starring in “Terminator: Salvation” and the Titanic size hit, “Avatar”. His star will only rise when his next flick, a remake of “The Clash of the Titans” hits theaters in March 2010.
Worthington was born in England, but grew up near Perth, Australia. His father was a power plant employee while his mom stayed at home to take care of his sister and him. He dropped out of school at 17 and pick up construction jobs til he decided to audition for a local dramatic arts school. He wowed the admission office so much, he was accepted with a scholarship. And just like that, his life would take on a different road.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the “Sex and the City 2” trailer. In that article, I took a screenshot of Samantha’s new HOT potential love interest (Nicky Marantino) and gushed about him. Turns out the dude, that caught my eye is high-fashion male supermodel, Noah Mills. The 24-year-old American was born in Baltimore, Maryland but grew up in Vancouver, BC- woot woot.
Though he began his modeling career in 2003 at the age of eighteen, he didn’t make his runway debut til a year later for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Soon after, he signed a contract with luxury brand, Dolce & Gabbana.
Since then he’s become a regular fixture in Milan and Paris, walking for the likes of Versace, Michael Kors, DSquared and the aformentioned Dolce & Gabbana. In 2009, he scored a major as campaign for D&G fragrances which featured legendary 90s supermodels: Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Eva Herzigova.
