Rockstar chef Nadia G. and her cohorts may tear it up in the kitchen on Cooking Channel's Bitchin' Kitchen (Wednesdays at 10:30pm ET), but we watch for Hans. This perennially-shirtless, beefed up, and oiled down sidekick knows his food.
Hans (real name: Bart Rochon) took a break between sets to dish with the Hunk du Jour team about working with Nadia, how he keeps in such fantastic shape, and what he loves so much about chocolate. Check out our Q&A below!
Troy, Hunkologist: Obviously, working with Nadia, you know a lot about how important food is to being a hunk. What's a typical menu for you on any given day?
Hans: Food is extremely important when trying to maintain a stellar physique. I like to vary my food as much as possible to avoid boredom... this helps me avoid 5 day binges which inevitably find me waking up on my couch with a tub of fried chicken, mounds of burger wrappers and soft ice cream melted all over my face.
Although the foods change in my daily diet, the basic rules stay the same: I try to eat every 3 to 4 hours, usually about 6 times a day. I consume 20 to 30 grams of protein in every meal, and I am careful to limit my sugars and starches.
