For a lesbian, Ellen Degeneres sure does have excellent taste in men. The departure of her half-naked “Nick the Gardener” leaves her fans wanting and her talk show scouring hot-guy videos for someone to tend their bushes. Hunks to the rescue!
When Degeneres secured Nick a spot in the man parade that will be Channing Tatum’s “Magic Mike 2” – just like that hot biscuit of a Georgia boy – there was a serious lack of beefcake on the “Ellen” show. Never fear. The host knows what her gay male and straight female viewers need, and it’s a little heat in the afternoon.
The ab-, pec- and bicep-filled video submissions are pouring in from sexy shirtless guys across the country. And a few fun freaks. The viral influx almost rivals the deluge of hot-jock Ice Bucket Challengers. Well, kinda. Anyway, here are our favorite auditions, starting with one guy (photo) who we already knew boasts the hottest butt in all the land.
UPDATE: The show announced on Nov. 18 that the hunk in the second video below, Derek Yates, won the contest. He's been known to bare his assets as well.
