VGL Italian Guy (37) ISO True ♥

Happy Birthday Antonio Sabato Junior! It's actually the 29th, but the next February 29th isn't till 2012, so we cheat.

And now, the mandatory Birthday Suit shot:

The 37 year-old model-actor (with global brand recognition only slightly lower than Coca-Cola) is looking for "true love" in a new reality thingy for VH1 this summer. The show recently ran ads in search of
the most alluring, seductive and exotic single women to embark on the romantic adventure of a lifetime. In this heartfelt and romantic competition of love and seduction, one femme fatale will become the envy of all others and attain the love of Antonio Sabato Jr.
Ain't love grand?

VH1 can count on tons of gay men to watch. For the catfights, the drama, the beefcake. And just to watch Antonio Sabato Junior move and speak! If the producers are smart, ASJ will be shirtless most of the time. Like this:

To VGL, Antonio Sabato Junior will always be the demigod on the Calvin Klein underwear billboard, a hundred feet tall, looking down on Times Square like he owns New York City.

VGL hopes you find real(ity) love, Antonio! We'll be watching!

*Not* Made in the USA!

VGL loves this saw-it-somewhere-and-downloaded-it ad -- and we'd bet our tax refund check it wasn't "Made in the USA"!

Homotography Says Sean O Shoot is Historic!

VGL loves Homotography, and Homotography loves model Sean O'Pry by Camilla Akrans.

The website has added the layout from Numéro Homme (#15) to its honor roll of images from last year, The Best of 2008 -- a VGL favorite.

Austin Victoria @ MenClick!

Austin Victoria sounds like a hot new sports car, but in fact, it's the name of this hot new model. [It's also the name of a female adult performer, but VGL ain't going there].

VGL first eyed Austin as he does so many hotties on MenClick -- a beautifully-designed site delivering a daily checklist of what's male and stunning!

Ppppppponiedziałek! Część Druga!

VGL's heart stopped!

Polish model Jarek Pietka (19) in photos by Bruno Van Mossevelde. More shots and a few details over at Très Fab Sweetie!

The images aren't new, but they're iconic and it can't hurt to gaze upon them again. And again. And again.

More Jarek via Google.

[BTW: "Ppppppponiedziałek! Część Druga!" is "Mmmmmmmonday Part Two" in Polish, a language VGL is now very interested in learning.]
