The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon that has raised awareness of the neurodegenerative disease to new heights as well as tens of millions of dollars to help fight it. By now, you’ve probably witnessed scores of your own friends dousing themselves with ice-cold water and seen videos of dozens of celebrities doing the same, all while challenging their other famous friends. We’ve gathered up all the hunky celebrity men we could find taking on the challenge and posted the videos for your enjoyment below. We’re still waiting for Channing Tatum to answer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s call and Chris Hemsworth [UPDATE: He did it and we have it!] to respond to Robert Downey Jr., and we are wondering when someone will finally get around to challenging Hugh Jackman [UPDATE: Done! See below!], Alex O’Loughlin [UPDATE: Done! Watch it below!], Taylor Kinney, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Alexander Skarsgard. And you can’t convince us that David Beckham isn’t working on his own video this very second! [UPDATE: Becks did it! Evidence below!]
You can learn more about this awful disease at the ALS Association website before donating whatever amount you can online at the same link.
In the meantime, enjoy videos from hot athletes and actors and more, including ‘Dancing With the Stars’ hottie Derek Hough, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and ‘Arrow’ hunk Stephen Amell (pictured above, left to right).
Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has a new title to enjoy alongside his recent FIFA Ballon d’Or: Fittest Man Alive! Men’s Health makes the claim on the cover of its September 2014 issue, and the accompanying photos provide evidence that the magazine’s bold assertion just might be completely correct. The Real Madrid stud appears shirtless in low-slung jeans that show a peek of his own CR7 underwear. As is Cristiano’s style — last seen on his totally naked Vogue cover — there isn’t a hair on his head out of place. Sadly, there also isn’t a single hair to found on his entire body.
The astonishingly apparent V-shape to his upper body that isn’t Photoshopped in the least, as proven by the behind-the-scenes video of his Men’s Health photo shoot below. And for those wondering how he gets that amazing body, you can get a sneak peak at the “Fittest Man Alive” cover story here.
U.S. World Cup superstar Tim Howard goes completely shirtless, full blue steel and total tattoo on the cover the latest issue of Adweek, and it is GLORIOUS. The U.S. Men’s National Team’s hero goalkeeper discusses his increased profile and expanded endorsement opportunities in the article, which you can read here.
Tim has never been shy about showing some skin, which we love. Some evidence:
It’s totally cool and astounding to see how his body art has increased in the past couple of years. His front torso doesn’t show any room for more tattoos, but maybe he has some blank spots elsewhere? Yeah, Tim, we saw you nude in the 2010 ESPN Body Issue, but it’s time to give us a fresh look!
The 2014 World Cup in Brazil just keeps getting hotter and hotter — and we’re not talking about temperatures, scorching as they might be. No, we’re talking about the many shirtless players we’ve spotted on the pitch, either celebrating or disconsolate (or consoling one another). Our first Shirtless World Cup Roundup featured such sexy guys as the USA’s dreadlocked Kyle Beckerman and Australia’s veteran hottie Tim Cahill — not to mention the always foxy Cristiano Ronaldo. All three of those studs are home already, but there are many more hunks to check out, including Uruguay’s Martin Caceres (above). Scroll on for the rest of our Shirtless World Cup Roundup (Part 2):
The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team has advanced to the Round of 16. As an American soccer fan, I couldn’t be prouder. And as a pervy lady, I couldn’t be happier — thanks to these hot celebratory shots taken in the USMNT’s locker room. Lots of hunky American players in various states of undress, including one of the squad’s very sexiest, midfielder Graham Zusi (that’s him clad only in a towel in the front row on the far right). Along with goalkeeper Tim Howard, Zusi was one of two U.S. stars appearing on our Top 50 Hottest Players in the World Cup list. Alas, Howard doesn’t appear in either of these new photos. But we know from previous sexy photoshoots — including his completely naked appearance in ESPN’s Body Issue — that Tim is not the least bit camera shy, so perhaps he was the one who took these pics. (Darn it!)

Of course, the USMNT aren’t the only squad to post nearly nude locker-room celebrations. We are huge fans of the Greece team as well, who shared this pic after also advancing into the knockout rounds.
Yes, that’s the divine Panagiotis Kone in his underwear in the center of the pic!
Australia’s Tim Cahill (left) and Ben Halloran help us celebrate our favorite part of the World Cup — when the players remove the shirts at the end of the game and swap them with their opponents. What a FANTASTIC tradition! We couldn’t be happier about it. Check out our favorite images from this past first week of the 2014 World Cup tournament in Brazil:
