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).
Ours is not to ask why, ours is to enjoy. ‘Dancing With the Stars’ brothers Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy pose naked for People magazine wearing only Pharrell-inspired hats on their private parts. As ridiculous as it sounds, it makes us so happy we could cry.
We can safely say this is the only time we’ve ever wanted to be Elizabeth Berkley, she of “Showgirls” fame and infamy. On last night’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the actress got to be the female filling in a shirtless salsa with hunky pros Val Chmerkovskiy and Gleb Savchenko.
We won’t spoil the evening’s results for you (get a recap here), but we will tell you that the judges gave the trio a perfect 30. Us, we only saw two guys on the dance floor (and two six-packs)! Check out video of the dance for yourself below, along with some more Savchenko shirtlessness:
As requested, Val Chmerkovskiy brought the scorching hot to last night’s “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” in the absence of his swoonworthy brother Maks and the sextastic Gilles Marini. Wow. Floored. I looooove surfer flamenco!
This is a big shout-out to Sherri Shepherd, who has been so generous posting Twitter pics of her sexy male “Dancing With the Stars” colleagues that I had to review my checkbook to see if she was on the Swoonworthy payroll!
Check out Sherri’s photos of William Levy, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tristan MacManus, Derek Hough and her hunky “DWTS” partner Val Chmerkovskiy:
As a display of gratitude to Sherri, let’s vote to keep Team SherVal in the competition as long as possible! These backstage shots are priceless, people!
Are you ready for Monday’s premiere of “Dancing With the Stars“?!? William Levy is bringing the sexy to the contestant side of things, but let us not forget the gorgeous pros who, um, entertain us season after season:
