Australia's Hottest Tradie, Matthew Wilson, has been tapped to wear the pants of one of Australia's other hottest assets, aussieBum. He fills out their new line quite well.
We're excited to share these two shots with you of 2010 Hunk du Jour Model Search winner Jesse Blum! He is looking amazing in these photos by Adam Medders Photography for On Display Men and Hunk du Jour.
Hunk du Jour flew Jesse to Dallas for a fantastic weekend with a brilliant team, and these two shots came from the our first day of the two-day session. Jesse was a complete professional, and chimed in with his own great ideas on poses and looks.
While the bedroom shoots were comfortably warm, Jesse found out exactly how chilly things could get in Texas during our outdoor location shoots -- with temperature hovering at around 40F, he had to keep his gaze smoldering. You can see from the results that he dug deep and made it happen.
Keep an eye out for more photos of Jesse from the weekend, plus Jesse's contribution to the Support Nature Project!

JOAN CRAWFORD: 1905-1977
Joan Crawford loved men and she liked sex. She surrounded herself with gorgeous hunks, both straight and gay. Her escorts were expected to be handsome, suave, polite, good conversationalists, but to know their place, expert dancers, eventual seducers and to be completely attentive to her every need. Wait, I say that like it's a bad thing! I love Joan. I always have. I find her compulsively watchable. Particularly when she carries a gun. I particularly love the ten year period of her career where she embraced Film Noir, from Mildred Pierce (1945) to Queen Bee (1955). Here she played the supreme Bitch Goddess, who would just as soon shoot her man as sleep with him. Yes, there's the eyebrows, the huge, padded shoulders that resemble a Green Bay Packer's and the mouth with it's slash of lip stick that got broader and broader as the years went by. There's the face in general, that seemed to turn to granite with each decade, like the fifth face on Mt. Rushmore. But, not unlike John Wayne, she could "carry a picture." Regardless of what's been said about her since the "Mommie Dearest" debacle, and I don't doubt that a lot of it was true, Joan Crawford was undeniably a star.

Featured model from Support Nature Project this week is Richard Maceyra.
I grew up in a small town, Lampasas, Texas, and was never far from any athletic sport being played. I enjoy meeting new people and learning new ways to further myself as a person and in the entertainment industry. I started my college career in theatre at Trinity Valley Community College and graduated with my Associate of Arts Degree and then transferred to the University of Texas at Arlington where I work to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training. Upon receiving by B.S., I would then seek my M.S. in the same area and work to establish a foundation in my career. I have plans to move to California and seek out the adventure of auditions and casting calls, modeling and/or acting, as my dream is to star in a film or television series.
There are many ways one can aid the environment around them. For example, hand washing dishes and avoiding disposable silverware and dinnerware, avoid driving everywhere, planting or gardening, eating out less or simply recycling. Being a college student, I have the option of driving everywhere but instead I decide to put my body to work by riding my bicycle especially over the summer to work. I hand wash all my dishes and I oppose using the dishwasher and hardly use disposable items like paper towels for cleaning. Manual labor is better. I believe the most important activity that I have done has been planting trees, flowers, or bushes on my parent's property. The results of planting have many effects such as more shade for the house which permits the reduction in air conditioning during the summer heat as well as making the air around the yard prone to being clean due to the release of plant oxygen and carbon dioxide absorption.
I'm a bit gaga for this model, Jared Prudoff... and today he posted some brand new photos from a new test shoot he did with New York photographer Rick Day last month. Jared is completely dreamy and completely unattainable (straight & engaged), but I don't let that get in the way of my affection for him and his work.
Featured model from Support Nature Project this week is Tyrone Betters.
Hello my name is Tyrone Betters. I am a 19 year old college student from Dallas, Texas. I am currently a sophomore at Georgia Southern University majoring in business management. I started my modeling career my freshmen year of college, when I tried out for a fashion show and liked it so much that I wanted to get better at modeling. Ever since then I have had numerous shoots, been in numerous shows, and now I am really making this my career choice. I want to be one of the best male models of my time period. I feel that I do have a lot to offer to the industry and I can be very successful. I also one day want to own various businesses. I wouldn't call myself and environment freak, but I feel that in order to keep a clean environment you have to start with yourself. I make a habit to recycle all that can be. Whether it be soda cans, water bottles, cardboard boxes, if it can be recycled I recycle it. Georgia Southern has recycle bens all around the campus so there is no problem doing it. When I am walking and I see some paper or something on the ground, I take the initiative and pick it up and throw it away. I try to reframe from littering unless it's like excess fruit or something because that can actually help the environment. I understand that industry has also been going green, so it would be a good idea to have shoots that support the green movement.
Photographer Kwannam Chu has a blog that I really enjoy reading -- fantastic visual style, plus he occasionally shares some of his amazing work! An example? This shoot he did with Ryan Taylor (DNA Model Management) for Men's Uno in China.
Check out the rest of the photos after the jump, then follow Kwannam's blog to continue on the journey!
Height/Weight: 6'2" / 185 lbs.
We ask Doug about the future of the news industry, the one place he's always wanted to travel, and the top options in Midwestern beer.
Week five of Support Nature Project - whose featured model this week is Lance Winters.
We're hitting the road! I'm off to Dallas this evening with our 2010 Model Search winner, Jesse Blum! We'll be meeting up with Alan Rust from On Display Men and Jay Fuertez to shoot Jesse for the Support Nature Project -- watch our Twitter and Facebook pages for mobile updates over the weekend!
Lance is a relatively new model with stunning potential. Modeling is not his ultimate goal, however. "I want to finish school with a Doctorate and become a psychologist for teens. My big dream is to be an actor, though. Overall, I just want to be the best person I can be." This model stays in shape doing both cardio and weight training. He also plays the occasional game of golf, basketball or football. If Lance doesn't get chosen for a particular job, he doesn't sweat the small stuff; rejection simply doesn't faze him. "Rejection doesn't bother me. I don't care what people think." Admittedly, Lance hardly gets any time to relax, and when he does, he prefers to spend it sleeping. However, he and his friends enjoy some downtime playing video games.
Since Lance enjoys being outdoors playing various sports he strongly believes in a better environment. He is glad to be part of this project to raise awareness about a better environment for us and our children. Of course, he recycles as we all should and he is going to look at other ways he can participate in environmental projects this year.
Week four of Support Nature Project - whose featured model this week is Hasani Bryan.
Originally from Chicago, IL and raised in Indiana, Hasani Bryan is a city boy who has always had an appreciation of nature and a general belief in the inherent good of humanity. Originally attending college with the intent of going on to medical school, he was moved midway through his academic career with the desire to entertain. While participating in a charity fashion show he developed a love of the fashion industry and became involved with various shows and campaigns.
Hasani moved to Dallas, TX after graduating from school to pursue a career in runway and commercial modeling. While in Dallas, he learned about the various ways in which the Earth has suffered from years of neglect. Knowing that every little bit helps, he lives an environmentally friendly lifestyle by shopping for organic foods, using cloth shopping bags and environmentally friendly products, carpooling when possible and supporting environmentally conscience projects and campaigns. Hasani Bryan's motto is that, "We have this one Earth, why not take care of it?" He currently splits his time between modeling and preparing to go back to school to become an Infectious Disease physician.
SIX photos of the stunningly gorgeous Jared Prudoff-Smith will do a much better job than coffee at getting your day off to a good start. What an amazing look!
Everyone's going Pavelka-crazy at the moment, whether it be for either of the reality show starring cousins! We've already seen a bit from DietTribe host Jessie Pavelka's 2011 calendar, and this morning photographer Bradford Rogne was nice enough to send over a few more to whet your appetite!
The publisher, 10%, will be releasing the calendar later this spring on amazon.com and some of your other favorite retailers.
Week two of Support Nature Project - whose featured model this week is Chad Washington. Chad says:
I started modeling two years ago when approached by a magazine editor at a gym I personal trained at. I have always been in shape but modeling helped push me to work out more. I constantly studied the art of modeling and the creative side as well. I love being in from of the camera and seeing creative individuals mesh together and make magic.
My goal with modeling is to be a recognized face and name. I also aspire to be a working model in New York City and use modeling to open up other avenues. I would love to grace the top fashion magazines and fitness magazines.
Coming from a small town i recognize the importance of everyone pulling together to make the community better. So, I volunteer my services once a week to helping pick up around my neighborhood and also picking up around my workplace. Although its hard work, I realize that the effort I put in matched with others help make my community and this world a better place.
By now you've seen the photos of Cristiano Ronaldo for Emporio Armani... This post may just be serving as an excuse to post him.
BUT! I do have a minor upgrade to the site that I'm sure will thrill and delight all of you... I've modified the Hunk of the Day nomination process so that we will no longer see multiple photos of the same guy on the same day.
AND! Last year we quietly implemented the return of commenting with a new system using Disqus. Please note you must confirm your e-mail address with Disqus (or use another method of logging in) for your comments to appear.
AND YET! I'm working on creating a blogroll system to spread more of the link-love mojo around to sites I love that don't link to us.
BECAUSE! I love you guys... Have a nice Thursday.
As you know, we're in the final judging process for our 2010 Model Search where Hunk du Jour will be adding our own selected model to the roster of guys asking you to C-IN2 nature. Our winner will be flown to Dallas to participate in his own Support Nature Project shoot, as well as get some quality time in with On Display Men founder Alan Rust and photographer Jay Fuertez!
Support Nature Project has been doing scouting of their own, and the first featured model in the campaign is Cade Wilson. Learn more about him below!
I am a 19 year old full time college student and full time job holder. I actually have two jobs, one is at Chili's bar and grill and the other is at Abercrombie and Fitch. At the moment I go to a local community college but plan to transfer to a major university within a year. I am very busy during the week and on weekends but still mix in a little fun every now and then. Life is too short not to live a little. I love modeling. I have loved it ever since I can remember. I would like to get signed by a major modeling agency and travel the world. Be the next big time model, a household name. But at the same time not compromise my morals and beliefs. I am a very driven person and won't stop till I am the best at whatever it is that I put myself into. I like having the camera on me; there is so many things that can be said through a picture and the expressions and backgrounds. It is truly a blessing and an honor to be able to do what i do.
Keeping our environment is so important and everybody needs to do their part. Not only do I recycle but doing something as small as carpooling to work and school or turning off lights when you leave a room are all helpful. I support our nations going green and not having to rely on so much foreign oil to run this country. I am currently in the process of getting together an awareness group at my local college to go around and raise questions to classes and give answers on how to help our world become a more green place. I want my kids, kids, kids, kids, kids to be able to enjoy this earth as much as I have.
We asked Cade how he felt about being selected as the first model to launch this Project. He said, "I am honored to be the first model picked to launch this project. Helping support our planet in any way possible is crucial and I am always looking to do my part".
We told you about the 2010 Undergear Calendar yesterday... well, we just got this behind-the-scenes video as well, check it out!
Imagine that you're a blogger -- you've woken up and taken a shower, and set out to do your 5:00AM rounds on the internet to see what happened overnight. This was the first thing you came across.
I've seen bits and pieces of this video from Tyler Shields trickle out on his YouTube channel... but wow what a difference when they are all tied together into this frantic explosion from his head.
I feel like either this is going to be an awesome day, or that America's favorite mouse is going to mug me in the parking garage.
This morning photographer Pablo-Chester sent over this photo set of acrobat & underwear model Stephane Haffner. Pablo's stuff is really hit-and-miss with me, but there is something raw in this collection that caught my eye. Enjoy the full set of over twenty photos after the jump!
Some of our best ideas come from dedicated Hunk du Jour readers like yourself and Terrell! Leave a comment and say thanks to Terrell for recommending this post, then Suggest a Hunk of your own!
Rick Day (previously featured) has captured another masculine beauty in Matt Schiermeier. According to his website, the former Rufskin model is also trying to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and knowledge of safe sex practices in eastern Europe. With such a stunning (and risque) portfolio, I'm sure he doesn't have any trouble grabbing our attention.
