  1. A shameless attempt to use shirtlessness to cash in on his internet celebrity. I fully approve.

  2. i like for him to put his hand behind his neck as well.

  3. Those shorts are kinda baggy. He needs some bikini briefs... or a thong.

  4. I want to adopt him:-)

  5. I feel a little bamboozled all of a sudden. He received immense compassion for what he went put out in the universe. Now the cynic in me can't help but think it was a calculated attempt to build recognition and notoriety?

  6. Just what the shallow gay world needs--more narcissistic behavior.

    Hopefully this young man finds more substantial ways of validation and doesn't join the downward spiral of shamless self-promotion found on the YouTube Attention Junkie Club.

  7. I assume he's available for private one-on-one instruction and coaching sessions? Perhaps he could demonstrate to me how one uses a sauna, and the appropriate amount of exertion one should attempt in it? :)

  8. The misspellings in captions (this time in the end scroll), and his constant awkward talking makes me cringe every time I watch his videos.

    I watch them multiple times. :-x

  9. He's just too damn cute.

  10. He's actually very good at presenting the exercise and demonstrating it. With a little practice, he could easily achieve his goals.

    As to being a hottie - Mission Accomplished!

  11. God people, you act as if he'll become some celebrity cruncher because he posted a workout tip and he came out on video. Only drooling idiots would look at this and start talking about how he needs to be in a thong. Grow up. Seriously, can you at least PRETEND like your life is driven by something besides sexual gratification. He's a kid, and he wants to share fitness knowledge. Let it be. As for those accusing him of being vain, it's called taking care of yourself. He's clearly not someone who spends 6 hours in the gym or bronzes up like some people, he's just an in-shape normal guy who's trying to be healthy. You don't have to choose between having an 8-pack and being a bear, but you can try to have a healthy diet/exercise, for the sake of your family.

  12. Umm... You don't get rid of love handles by exercising the muscles under your love handles. What is this, 1940?

  13. I still remember people asking him to take off his shirt when he was closeted in the barracks and his aversion to it because it was all about 'the message' he had to bring to his supporters.

    How times have changed.

    Admit to being a hypocrite and wanting to cash in on your 15 minutes, and we'll let you off the hook.

  14. Easy way to shed a few pounds...take off his shorts

  15. Go LSU, crush the Crimson Tide next week.

  16. He posted shirtless photos of his abs before he even came out of the closet...having said that,I do feel his youtube videos were simply a way to get attention for himself.

  17. I can't help but think that if this were a budding "diva" trying to take advantage of her newfound "celebrity", most of you criticizing him would not be.

    Why are gay men so brutally harsh towards each other? Perhaps in cases like this, it springs from the usual resentment that masculinely-deficient queens feel towards gay men that are not masculinely-deficient. More broadly speaking, it is often about jealousy.

    So what if he is taking advantage of his "fame"? People do it all the time....and I hardly think he would have come out to his parents just for the sake of making an exercise video, in hopes of making a financial killing off of it--to think that is really pushing the limits of cynicism.

    And besides, he has a near-perfect boy-next-door body and persona, as far as I am concerned--so much more appealing than these overly-pumped, muscle-clone gym bunnies (who often sound like Lauren Bacall when they open their mouths).

    I would gobble him up in a New York minute if the opportunity presented itself.

  18. And I can't help but think if he were an effete guy, Rick would be the loudest criticism of him.

    Also, I am oddly amused that both of Rick/Jason's personalities are manifesting themselves on this thread. I picture them at home talking to themselves like Gollum.

  19. Nice and cute.

  20. He's just too damn cute!

    Posted by: C.J. | Jan 5, 2012 11:12:58 AM

  21. @Joey Y: Humor is allowed. You won't be punished. Seriously.

    And his shorts are too baggy.

    Posted by: Anastasia Beaverhausen | Jan 5, 2012 11:37:54 AM

  22. His shorts are not too baggy. They add to his naturalness, which is what makes him attractive. Tight briefs would spoil it and make him look more like one of the shaved clones I referred to earlier, whose artificiality and narcissism makes them quite un-sexy.

    Posted by: Rick | Jan 5, 2012 11:43:32 AM

  23. Damn, Randy...

    Coming from one of his biggest supporters from the beginning, I thought we finally found the mythic gay man who happens to be hot, intelligent, and completely down to earth.

    At least he's hot.

    Posted by: Cory | Jan 5, 2012 12:10:43 PM

  24. I wish Randy the best.

  25. As a gay man as well as a military officer, Im absolutely ashamed at these. I had suspected from the beginning that this was a ploy for fame as his video's were timed directly in relationship to the repeal of DADT and these video's confirmed it for me. The second that became the poster child for those young boy's and girl's coming out of the closet he should have focussed on being a support system and EXAMPLE for these people. His priorities and values are clearly not in the right place. If someone does know him, he needs a mentoring lesson ASAP.
