Happy Hump Day, Hunk Lovers! Here's a hump day quickie for you, perennial fan favorite Jack Mackenroth in these exclusive pics just for your discerning eyes!
Jack gave us a little insight on the shoot:
[Kevin and I had] been talking about shooting for a while now but our schedules never seemed to synchronize. I've been a fan of Kevin's work for a long time. The shoot was initially for a Brazilian magazine called GLAD but something got lost in translation during their communication regarding art direction and they thought the photos were "too provocative" and they only ended up using one image. We put a lot of time and effort into the shoot so we sent them to you so they could see the light of day.
Mister Chase (see our previous interview) is back and buff -- covering Rihanna's "Stay."
Stars in Danger: The High Dive, a two-hour special on FOX that challenges celebrities to face their fears and take the plunge into the world of diving. (See what I did there?)
Aside from the chance to see some of your favorite celebrities in swimwear (including Stephen "Twitch" Boss, David Chokachi, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Terrell Owens) - you can see some of the effort and struggles faced while tackling an incredibly difficult sport.
I'm happy to welcome back Karl Walden to Hunk du Jour, who was nice enough to answer a few questions about the show and how the rigerous training went for the stars!
Watch Stars in Danger: The High Dive tonight at 8:00PM on FOX!
How did you get involved with Stars In Danger: The High Dive?
I heard about the show through my friend who saw a breakdown online for divers and or diving coaches. I submitted my headshot, my team picture from the university of tennessee, and some videos of me diving for the show - hoping to get an interview. I quickly got a call to schedule an on-camera interview. I kept getting calls from the production company saying I made it through to another round, and then the final call telling me that I'd booked it! I was REALLY excited!
Two Hunk du Jour favorites bring you a Christmas treat... Gilles Marini in this incredibly sexy pic from the archives of our friend Fred Goudon!
Is there any better way to celebrate the holidays??
Via my good friend over at Squarehippies!
The Hunk of the Day application and voting is still down for refurbishment. I hope to have it back soon, but do not have an ETA. Thank-you for your patience.
Over on his blog today, photographer Fred Goudon has a Q&A with model and international DJ Willy Monfret.
Nicki Minaj fans might recognize him as the hunk from her Right Through Me video. Check out these photos as well as two outtakes after the jump!
British mag Q+A UK features a rare appearance by a male model on it's cover this month! Alex Geerman (Soul) gets the honor, and he appears with fellow model Jeff Tomsik (Next) for an editorial shot by Sailey Williams
It is a season of reconnecting with old friends and colleagues this summer... and next on the list is Sonny Tong. He's a crazy talented photographer, lands some epic and amazing gigs with noteworthy folks, and may even be old enough to buy alcohol by now. (If not, I'll hook you up when we finally meet up, Sonny.)
He shared images from one of his latest projects -- Frank C from Chosen Models. Frank's torso has a gravitational force that resists all efforts to conceal it! And that's good news for us.

More tasty morsels from photographer Fred Goudon for you today... this time a bright & airy photo shoot with Maxwell Zargoski!
Benjamin Godfre popped up on this site about four years (and four thousand entries) ago, modeling for Timoteo underwear and looking all sexy as hell.
Enter 2012, and Ben is not just "the Timoteo guy" anymore... he has a rabid online following of "Benjaminions" feverishly watching his blog, tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook pages. He's got more of a skateboarder "fuck you, world" edge these days, too... stretching or redefining labels, he's expanding his empire with a subscription site (an inner sanctum of exclusive and personal content) and even teaming up with an adult film company for a couple scenes.
Almost like he's saying "Yeah, I got approached by a porn company... and I'm gonna do it. Fuck you, world!"
And it works for him.
The attitude, the skateboarding, the free-flowing nudity, the bad-boy next door image, and the brief peeks of a softer side... it makes perfect sense in my understanding of Ben. Watch interviews with him (I love the bathtub interview he did with Accidental Bear) and I think you'll get it too.
So Ben... keep kicking ass and taking names. You're Hunk du Jour approved, and we salute you.
Another treat for you night owls from the mind (and blog) of Fred Goudon... photos and an outtake of Papi stud Brett Novek. (Just 'cos.)
While getting new 2wink Australia trunks in the mail would be heaven, I'll settle for what appeared in my inbox this week... photos of Ryan Burke modeling two new styles from 2wink Australia. Shot by photographer Russell Fleming for the brand, I think we can all agree that we want to get inside his trunks.
I mean, our own pair... not his.
...okay, I meant his. (We can probably all agree that he looks better in them than this blogger would anyway.)
David Axell is a dream come true for lovers of redheads, and in this spread for the August 2012 issue of Manner Magazine you can see why. Photographer Richard Gerst teamed up with Fredo (Styling) and Riad Azar (Opus Beauty, Grooming) for the insomnia-inspiring shoot... and was good enough to share the results with you!
For those brand-conscious types wanting to look like David... check out: Thomas Pink, Briel, Oliver Peoples, Michael Bastian, Moscot, Ermenegildo, Zegna, Paul Smith, Hugo Boss, Yuasa, Kimono House, Alpina, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bally, and Girard-Perregaux.
I'm a naughty blogger -- I should be taken upstairs and spanked. However, instead of wallowing in self-pity or making grandiose promises of a changed world and being a new man... I'll quietly write a new post.
Fred Goudon is a killer photographer, and a swell guy. He e-mailed out of the blue in 2010 to let me know about his newly-published calendar of Gilles Marini (who was fresh off his revealing performance in the Sex and the City movie) and has been nice enough to keep me up to date with his goings-on... they live in a folder named "To Post" (which was named with the most noble of intentions.)
Thanks for keeping me in the loop Fred (and all of you other lovely people) -- I'm sorry I've been so neglectful.
So on Wednesday I shared the video from the cast & crew of Anything Goes where they covered One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.
I'm a little late to the party -- but today is gonna be Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe" day! First up is the original music video - featuring shirtless lawn care, car washes, of course a twist.
After the Jump: sexy shirtless gay boys, college baseball players, wacky high schoolers, and links to even more versions!
