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).
USA swimmer Ryan Lochte reminds us why we prefer the Summer Olympics to the Winter Olympics. (Here’s a hint, in case you can’t figure it out.) The 11-time Olympic medalist and former reality star shared a couple of sexy shots of his recent photoshoot for Speedo on Instagram, and we’re all like “Jeah!”
We’re also happy that his manager and the Speedo company itself have been in a sharing mood, posting pics of Ryan and fellow Olympians Nathan Adrian, Cullen Jones, Eddie Moses and more:
So much beautiful skating, so much beautiful hair. I was transfixed by the USA’s Charlie White and his flowing blond locks as he and partner Meryl Davis twizzled their way around the rink at the Sochi Olympics today and yesterday. Apparently, we are not alone. Congratulations, Davis and White! (And, yes, Charlie’s White’s Hair has its own Twitter account!)
Tom Daley, so wonderful at posting photos of himself with barely any clothes on, has found another way to make our day: The British Olympic diver came out via a YouTube video earlier today. He says he is bisexual but that he is currently dating a guy (watch the video below). Just 19 years old, Tom has had to deal with a lot of innuendo and BS in his accomplished young life, and we couldn’t be happier for him to have this weight lifted off of his (almost always bare) shoulders. Congrats, Tom!
When a guy spends practically his entire life clad only in a Speedo, the pics he uploads to social media are bound to be entertaining. So it’s no surprise British Olympic diver Tom Daley rarely disappoints with the photos he uploads unfailingly every single day with the hashtag “DaleyDiary.” We’ve uncovered the best pics Tom has posted on his Instagram of his sexy summer (so far): soaking up the sun, training, chilling poolside and grilling shirtless (as perilous as it is hot).
