MCM: 13 Sexy Chefs Who Are Too Hot For The Kitchen

Just in time for Thanksgiving! We’ve compiled a list of sizzling culinary babes who we WISH were cooking us turkey dinners on Thursday (clothing and apron optional). Seriously, we wished so hard…our brains turned into mashed potatoes, and we’re currently writing this post smothered in a stupid amount of gravy. Stupid. We scoured the web, asked our foodie girlfriends, and watched a lot of cooking shows this weekend to find men who know how to flex their muscles aaaaaand steam their mussels. (See what we did there?) We’ve got everything from sexy celebrity chefs to star-of-their-own-scene hunks that make cooking our new favorite obsession. Here’s to the men who can heat up our kitchens (and our beds) any day…

MCM: Top 11 Hottest NFL Players of 2014

Hubba, hubba. Whether you love the game for its testosterone-fueled competitiveness or because of your own estrogen-fueled sexual attraction to beefcakes, there is no denying that American football players are modern day Adonises. This edition of Man Crush Monday pays tribute to the hunks of Monday Night Football. (See how that worked out perfectly?) Here’s to the start of a dreamy week full of long daydreams that include you, a can of whipped cream, and one (or all) of these babes. Happy Monday! Get ready to drool…

Man Crush(es) Monday: Gorgeous Guys In Flannel Shirts

Who tried to make a deal with the devil this morning when their alarm went off? Ain’t no shame in offering to sell your soul for just 30 more minutes of sleep. Ugh. We totally get it. Mondays are the worst thing since paper cuts came into existence. You know what would make waking up on Mondays bearable? Waking up next to some dude wearing a flannel. Or better yet, waking up in bed wearing nothing but some dude’s flannel…next to said dude.

Why a flannel? There’s something sexy about flannel shirts. Maybe it’s the 90s grunge thing that brought us dark-hearted poets like Kurt Cobain and Gavin Rossdale. Maybe you think lumberjacks are sexy…no judging. We can totally dig the strong, silent (could totally build you a log cabin with his bare hands) type. Oh, just imagine it. That warm, cozy, kinda-scratchy-in-a-good-way flannel shirt brushing up against your body…sending chills up and down your spine. Are you having a little trouble imagining it? Don’t sweat it — we hooked you up with a gallery full of sexy guys wearing flannel shirts. Pick your imaginary mate and throw him this line… “Hey, boo. You think you can turn down the heat a little? Because you’re too hot to flannel!” Boom. His panties just dropped. Your panties just dropped. Now it’s a party.

Man Crush Monday: Chris Pratt (AKA Andy Dwyer + The Hunk from Guardians of the Galaxy)

Whether you prefer him as the dimwitted (and much chubbier) Andy Dwyer of Parks and Recreation or as a half-man, half-alien (but all sexy) Peter Quill of Guardians of the Galaxy, there is no denying that Chris Pratt is Hollywood’s latest (albeit unexpected) leading man. Upon seeing the trailer for GOTG for the first time, a lot of us skeptically snarked, “Is that Andy from Parks and Recs? No freaking way!” The voice sounded familiar, but the face was a bit more chiseled and lacked that uh-duhhhhhhhh look we’ve grown to love. And the body…oh laaaaaaaaawd…the body was (alert a lifeguard because we’re about to faint in a pool of our own drool) life!

We’re so glad to see Chris Pratt rolling in the same crew as other Marvel Comics’ hunks, like Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender, and Hugh Jackman. Who knew this funny man could also be a superhero? He and all of his comic book movie buddies can rescue us out from a burning bra building any day. How did Chris go from chubby to every girls dream hubby? He did it with an incredible sense of humor and a strict six-month-long regimen of diet and exercise to reveal his buff bod.

It usually bums us out to realize that our #mcm is married or dating some chick, but we’re kinda okay with Chris Pratt being married to Anna Faris. She’s one of our favorite comedians and she is totes adorbs. They also have a son named Jack, who is probably in a constant giggle fit because his parents are so damn hilarious. Funny, fine, and a family man. Please make more of hims! Pleeeeeeease…

Man Crush Monday: Jesse Rutherford (AKA Lead Singer of The Neighbourhood)

If you don’t know this week’s #MCM, then you need to get your priorities straight, sister! His name is Jesse Rutherford, and he is the smoking hot lead singer of the five-piece Californian rock band, The Neighbourhood. Chances are, you’ve heard their hit single Sweater Weather, and chances are you love the crap out of it. So we all love his music (that’s a given), but there is so much more to this man than that beautiful voice. Let’s start with that slim and trim body. It’s the kinda frame you want wrapped around you at night. And then there’s his assortment of tattoos. We’re talking body art that makes you wish you were a paint brush and he was your canvas. And don’t even get us started on his moves. This boy can definitely dance. He’s got a certain white-boy swag that makes you want to do bad things.

We know. We know. We got kinda freaky over Jesse, but we can’t help it. We just saw The Neighbourhood play The Greek Amphitheater last Thursday night, and it was just about the sexiest damn rock concert we’ve ever been to. His romantic lyrics set atop the loungy tunes and then topped off with his creamy body rolls, pelvic thrusts, and longing looks gave every girl in that stadium the chills. In fact, we counted at least six lacy bras that were thrown onto the stage. Jesse picked each of them up and hung them up on his mic stand. (What a gentlemen!) If you haven’t seen this magnificent man perform, you must!

Man Crush Monday: Dave Franco (AKA The Younger, Even Hunkier Franco?)

Monday was just meh…and then this happened! If you don’t already know this week’s Man Crush Monday, please allow us to shed some light on the beautiful Dave Franco.

Why U Should❤ Davey Franco:

  • He loves cats (cat daddy to Harry and Arturo)
  • He’s hilarious (check out his Funny Or Die videos)
  • He’s got a smile that could melt your panties off
  • He’s got bushy eyebrows (which are soooooo in right now)
  • He’s a shawty (5’7″ of lord have mercy)
  • He cares about your feelings (he’s just a few classes away from a Psychology degree at USC)
  • He’s a Gemini…which means he has no problems expressing his feelings.

Where You’ve Seen Him:

Does Davey-Boo look familiar to you? That’s because he’s kinda always been in your life. You just never really noticed him because he’s always been the wing-man or side-kick. He was the smooth talking eco-freak Cole in 21 Jump St., soccer playing Greg in Superbad, and most recently Zac Efron’s bestest bud Pete in Neighbors.

Things we’re not talking about:

Everyone is constantly comparing Dave to his older bother James Franco, but we’re not going there. We think they’re both sexy as hell in their own way, and they deserve equal parts of our obsession. So stop trying to make us pick one over the other. Our mother always told us that we could have anything and everything we wanted in life…so we’ll take both Franco brothers. Please and thank you. Other things we’re not gonna talk about? His current girlfriend Alison Brie and his ex-girlfriend Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray from Glee)…because we enjoy living in denial.

Man Crush Monday: Pharrell (AKA P. Willy, Pha-real, Lil’ Skateboard P)

  • Discovered by Teddy Riley (lead singer of R&B group Blackstreet) at a high school talent show
  • Early Professional Collaborations: He’s written and produced for Wreckx-N-Effects, SWV, Mase, N.O.R.E., Kelis…and gained a ton of attention when he produced Britney Spears’ I’m A Slave 4 U.

Man Crush Monday: Alexander Masson (AKA The French/Colombian Jeebus, Your Future Baby Daddy, & The Dreadlock Hunksta)

Oh. Good. Laaaaawd. Thank you, J.Lo, for bringing this man into our lives. If it wasn’t for your thirsty hazel eyes picking this hunky hottie out of a crowd of beautiful male models for your latest video, we might have never known such magnificence existed. (Everyone, please give Ms. Lopez a round of applause!)

We don’t know much about him because he is a recent discovery in the industry. (But this is one topic we don’t mind spending hours and hours researching at the library in the privacy of our own bedrooms.) We may not have a ton of dirt on this scruffy bae, but we’ll give you what we do know. It’s our public duty.

He was born in Virginia, later moved to France, and now resides in Miami. Alexander got his big break as a sexy drummer boy in a video which featured J.Lo, Adrenalina. He must have made quite an impression on Jennifer because she cast him in her most recent video, I Luh Ya Papi. He has since signed with an agency and is now a legit represented model.  He’s just starting this beautiful career of his, and we wish him the very best!

Now excuse us while we go try and convince our CEO that we should create a men’s line…just so we can cast this beautiful Adonis. Hey, Alexander, GoJane wants you. We want you sooooooo bad.

Man Crush Monday: Kit Harington (AKA Jon Snow, Lord Snow, The Bastard Son, & [Just Plain] Christopher…)

Pssssh…more like AKA my future one night stand (maybe four night stands!).

Who watched last night’s Season 4 finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones? We certainly did, and OMG, besides all of the other awesome scenes (Tyrion Lannister…you crazy mofo, you!) one of our favorites was when Jon Snow reminded us all why we love him soooooo much. He is straight up one of the most respectable characters on the show. The way he manned up and showed some of that Ned Stark realness by saving the Wildling’s King-Beyond-The-Wall from a doomed fate under the capture of Stannis Baratheon,The One True King. (If you’re a little confused right now, you needs to watch the show, and for those of you who do watch the show but didn’t see last night’s episode…we don’t want to give too much away.) Basically he was like, “That dude never treated me unfairly, so I’m gonna show him the same kinda love.”  That’s game recognizing game right there. And we know we’re talking about this week’s MCM in the form of a television character, but his role as Jon Snow is a major reason we love this man so much.

So who is the real man inside this this hunky exterior? Here are some random facts about our long-haired lover boy:

  • London-born, Worcester-raised
  • Kit’s real name is Christopher, but he didn’t know that until he was 11 years old.
  • He is a descendant of  English aristocrats (the Haringtons are said to be direct descendants of King Charles II)
  • He was a Theater major who got his first role in War Horse
  • Don’t bother trying to cyber-stalk him on Instagram or Twitter. He doesn’t really dig social media, because he hates “to talk about [himself] more than [he] already has to…”
  • He showed up to his Game Of Thrones audition with a real black eye
  • He really dated on-screen love interest, Ygritte, the redheaded Wildling (they broke up in 2013 but remain friends)
  • Kit is currently single…yaaaaaaaaaaaas! But that may not last much longer because rumor has it, he’s vying for another co-star’s heart…Emilia Clarke (the Mother of Dragons).
  • Click here to learn more about Kit…

So here’s a gallery full of Kit’s beautiful hair, sexy beard, cut-up abs, and smoldering eyes. Thank you, Kit, for giving us a reason to wake up this fine Monday morning.

Man Crush Monday: James Franco

We know, we know. Mondays suck. They suck hard. There’s nothing we can do or say to make them suck any less. Or is there? We might have something to turn that Monday frown upside down… How about 28 pictures of the sexiest man ever?! Look who’s all peppy now. This week’s #MCM is none other than the foxy James Franco!

We have basically been infatuated with him for a few years now and thought it was about time we went public with our feelings. Hi, my name is “Every Girl In The World,” and I love me some James Franco! What’s not to love about this darling man? He’s got the sex appeal of James Dean, Luke Perry, and Johnny Depp all wrapped into one; the silliness of your fave stoner BFF; and a smile that would make a unicorn cry. On top of all that, it turns out that he’s quite a little scholar too. (Can you say “PhD Candidate at Yale?”) He’s an actor, director, screenwriter, teacher, poet, Broadway star…and most importantly, God’s gift to the universe.

What can we say? He’s basically the perfect man. So here’s to what was almost the suckiest Monday ever but is now suddenly the best Monday ever…thanks to our wonderful picture gallery full of Mr. James Franco. And don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone that you totally just perved out on this sweet hunk of a man. Perv on, sister. Perv on!
