Attack of the Clones


Because I can't ignore it any longer.

Because every time I drive down Sunset they are staring down from a billboard, like little lost gingerbread men cut from the same cookie cutter, all brown and buttered up, with nowhere to go.

Because 16 Hello Kitty backpack-wearers in combat boots can't be wrong.

Because of that I'm going to have to blog about Manhunt. And (God help me) I'm probably going to keep on blogging about it.

KevinpI'll admit it. I did go to the site. And I did happen to watch a few of the personal videos. The overriding sentiment from them was "Golly gee, this modeling thing'll sure open doors for me."

Despite the Zoolanderesque tone of the show, host Carmen Electra expressed shock at what she witnessed during filming: "Some of the guys are really serious. They're worse than women. They're very competitive. They're obsessed with their bodies and their diets. They spend hours in the gym. One guy was putting Preparation H on his abs."

Sounds like Crunch West Hollywood. But I digress. The first episode will have the models performing a tandem parachute jump in Calvin Klein underwear. Not sure what that has to do with modeling, but hey, I'm not complaining.

  1. It's got to be Blake, no question. The best face by far, and a body that still looks human. The rest are just silly.

    Great blog by the way, Andy! Keep it up!(Ahem)

  2. Yes, this show promises to be quite dopey. Even so, I'm unlikely to miss any of it! :)

  4. So this isn't a tie-in to the porn film that was just released or the hookup site I'm guessing.

  5. Preparation H on your abs? What on earth does that do? Can someone let me know? This show looks to be hysterical yet horrifying even if the boys all look the same. Though, I will be there infront of the TV when it starts.

  6. Ive said this before and I'll say it again.

    With the exception of 4 or 5, most of them are just NOT THAT CUTE ~

  7. If I were a scout, I'd pic Jon. The look of the male model is moving away from the all-american white bread abercrombie look to a darker flavor. Also, the scar is fucking hot. Some of these guys I just could NOT see in a haute couture setting. Perhpaps some Cosmo, American Eagle, Hollister work, but not Versace or Armani.

  8. This has got to be the worst thing out ... it's rather comical .. they're skydiving in boxerbriefs .. and then doing they're best zoolander poses. Horrible. And I'm agreed ... they're not that great looking.

  9. I'll take Kevin(?) any day: then again, he's already a working model, gracing the current cover of the Undergear catalog (stop snickering!)...

  10. oh Andy, Manhunt is like a car crash on the 110. I'm repulsed and yet... I cannot look away....

  11. We don't get Bravo. Me very ssad. Me have friend taping the show. Me dance heartily.

    Anyone remember Kevin P, the then 19-yr-old from America's failed "Are You Hot?" He's lost the weight and looking better. He's my guess. I wonder if they are going to have the culture clashes like ANTM? the x-right xtain boys with the flaming 'mos.

  12. That Micah was eliminated in the first round just shows that it is impossible to make a honest show about this. And before Matt! It would take any one of us 2 seconds to pick the winner. No need for TV crew or Carmen Electra

    From what I saw on the web site, Micah along with Kevin P was the best of the bunch!

  13. That Hunter is the best, his intensity (and those of his abs) into the camera is incredible. Looked even better spread eagled over the bar back in Little Rock, spooky to see him get called out by Tate as a "Seth," which admittedly is no compliment, but Hunter knows he's got a future, at least in gay porn.

  14. Kevin Peake is the best man that was on the show,to bad he couldn't win, because he is already a successful model. His great all american looks,and his amazing hard core body could make the world love him, it's just a matter of time until everyone notices him. Until then I will love his modeling and that will do.

  17. Carmen Electra is not clone. Maybe clown, but no clone :)
