Holy smokes! It’s been entirely too long since the Nun has served up an entree of beefcake… so let’s make it a good one. Meet 25-year-old L.A.-based model and actor Parker Hurley. At 6’0″ and 170 pounds, he’s a big fan of superheros (as you can see from Parker’s Tumblr blog) and in fact, is vying to play one in a film. You got my vote, dude.
Hurley has modeled for countless clothiers, worked the runway and has the requisite requirements for any Smoking Nun Hot Guy: effervescent teeth, fearless in a Speedo, a bod built for denim and hair that sweeps just right with a wisp of the wind. Ooh la la, boy, oh boy. *
Rufskin Denim, whose fashion lines are designed to shine, has just released its Spring 2012 swimwear campaign, featuring Rodiney Santiago. At last, some new pics of our boy, who has been busying himself with silly VH1 series Couples Therapy. Rod is shown here wearing Rufskin’s Paraggi, Palermo, Surf, Portofino Roma and Capri lines of swimwear in addition to various tops and accessories. For so much more, visit the clothiers webbie at www.rufskin.com. Its daily blog is here.And a few more nuggets from the Spring campaign. Below is our old pal Michael Barre, a runner-up for The Smoking Nun’s Sexiest Man of the Year in 2011.
Happy April 2012 from our old buddy Rodiney Santiago! It’s been quiet on the Rod front lately, since he began a ridiculous run on VH1’s Couples Therapy, where ailing lovers reveal all sorts of things that’s nobody’s business. On Logo’s The A List, Rodiney and Reichen Lehmkuhl were all but over… but perhaps the opportunity to milk the relationship for further reality fame was too much to resist? Not a lot of respect for that, but my healing has begun with a handful of new pics here of sweet Rodiney. Yes, I’m feeling better already… *And below, Rodiney’s new line of clothing, available on his webbie, rodineysantiago.com.
The Smoking Nun is so allll about sports. This week, we offer an attentive eye toward one to watch at the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics. Homorazzi alerts us to 19-year-old Brit diver Christopher Mears. Three years ago, he suffered from a ruptured spleen and almost died. He certainly looks to have made a nice recovery. *
Our sweet boy has recently traveled to Rio, indulging us with scintillating beach bum poses: Truly, the bounty that David Beckham offers to men’s underwear, Rodiney is equally fulfilling to the Speedo’s signature. He’s also recently updated his webbie with lots of new picolas. Ready or not: Ooh la la! *
Welcome to the world-class nominee pool for The Smoking Nun’s 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. This year, we offer a field of nine macho candidates for your viewing pleasure. And the nominees are… Jed Hill, Joe Manganeillo, Michael Barre, Josey Greenwell, Chris Hemsworth, Nick Ayler and 2010 encores William Levy, Kellan Lutz and Rodiney Santiago.
And now, cool cats, it’s your turn to vote! See the poll to the right side and offer your input for 2011’s Sexiest Man Alive. The winner (uh, despite your input) will be announced in one week, December 28.
Jed Hill, 26 and a former Penn State football player, decided the world would be better served by his dedication to fitness and underwear modeling. We wholeheartedly agree.
Encore!!! 2010’s runner-up for Sexiest Man Alive William Levy (a hair behind Rodiney Santiago) fulfilled 2011 with a red-hot calendar and constant presence in Latino pop culture, as he wrapped his role in telenovela Triunfo del Amor, made a cultural event out of Jennifer Lopez’s music video for “I’m Into You” and for the fifth time, was named one of People en Español’s Most Beautiful. He made a horrid strategic error in turning down a role in Magic Mike, his potential foray into Hollywood, and shaved his head in 2011. But we still love the guy.
HBO’s True Blood co-lead Joe Manganeillo, whom I’m frothing all over in his role as Big Dick Richie in 2012’s Magic Mike, plain and simple, offers the full package: machismo, beautiful brown eyes, great sweeping hair, packed jeans and of course, those delish abs. So handsome. Ooh la la!
Kellan Lutz is another 2011 encore, following a number of fitness covers and delectable photo shoots. He’s on the verge of becoming toooo muscular, a la steroid king, but as long as he maintains those radiant blue eyes, Kellan is in the running.
Ruff!! Model Michael Barre is all a man oughta be—and, indeed, everything a gay enjoys ogling. Do we even have to list his attributes? A stunning face, a body worthy of naughty porn, a teasing smile and lord have mercy, he does appear to fill his britches, yes?
Welcome back, Rod! 2010’s Sexiest Man Alive definitely kept the fire burning in 2011, with a constant flow of new modeling gigs, including Rufskin, in addition to countless personal appearances, including several in NYC, where I was able to say howdy to this surprisingly sweet, sincere swath of perfection. Rodiney earned high marks on a monthly picturesque basis—not to mention being the most-visited presence on The Smoking Nun all year, alongside William Levy. Could Rodiney score a two-for-two Sexiest Man of the Year victory? Take a look at that face & bod and you tell me.
Out-and-proud country singer and model Josey Greenwell was raised in Kentucky, won the Colgate Country Showdown in 2006 and was signed to a record deal in Nashville at age 19. When the label discovered that Greenwell is gay, he was promptly dropped. Now the 23-year-old singer is finding his own way, thanks to a shitload of gay press and a promising modeling career. He covered DNA mag and the 2012 Sparticus Travel Guide this year with… our beloved Rodiney Santiago.
The star of 2011 hit flick Thor transformed what could have been a one-dimensional superhero role into a bemusing onscreen presence, while boasting undeniable beauty & machismo. Chris Hemsworth has a mighty promising career before him, with a “nice guy” rep in Hollywood & heaps of talent.NICK AYLER
Talk about winning the beautiful man lottery. Nick Ayler was born in Las Vegas, and moved 18 times by the time he graduated from high school. As a model, he has graced campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, TYORI menswear and Apple, as well as modeling for DNA, Mens Exercise and Bello. He’s appeared in flicks Holy Rollers & Fighting, and TV shows Army Wives & Mercy. He also happens to be one of the most delectable men I have ever seen in my long long life.
