The latest round of sizzling hunks can’t seem to stay put…
What makes a guy “hot”? Is it their confidence? Perhaps their charm? For many, it’s a love for animals, and quite often the body language they exude. A winning smile, chiseled physique and the right clothes all make a man stand out from the crowd.
For this edition of ‘Hot Guys of Vegas’, we get close and comfy with active men who know how to show off their physiques and electrify a crowd. So let’s pop open a few buttons and get started with…
Adam D. Tucker aka “Vegas McGraw” – recording/tribute artist
Where You’ve Seen Him – “Country Superstars”, “Vegas Gone Country”
The amazing transformation of Tim McGraw from dad-bod handsome to super-chiseled sex idol sold countless issues of tabloid magazines. Dazzling tribute artist Adam D. Tucker has no problem keeping up with…and even exceeding…the Grammy-winning country artist when it comes to physiques.
Tucker can match the memorable vocals of McGraw, too. The Las Vegas-based entertainer may be a tribute artist, but he’s also an awesome singer in his own right. He’s recorded two solo albums in Nashville and has opened for superstars like Taylor Swift and Reba McEntire.
When he’s not performing with his band in concerts around the country, you can find Adam emceeing events, heating things up at modeling shoots or sharing his upbeat messages as a motivational speaker. The dedicated dad loves meeting people and makes each show a personal experience with post-performance photo ops.
All of that boundless energy can’t be contained by a few flimsy buttons, so don’t be surprised if Adam’s beefy chest and rippled abs make a surprise guest appearance. When Vegas McGraw takes to the mic, you’ll be singing “I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.” But good luck tracking him down, as he’s ALWAYS on the go. Here’s a typical day:
“This upcoming week Vegas to Florida back to Vegas then NASCAR followed by Cannery Casino performance. Just boarded my flight on Allegiant Air. As always these flights are tighter than my shirts. I will be headlining to Ripley, WV 4th of July 2020 Celebration! Yes, I’m beyond burnt out but have been for many years! Can’t stop now! It’s hard to get the Tucker boys to sit still!”
Noteworthy traits – smooth bare pecs, swarthy facial hair, smoldering moves
Ivan Alex Cruz – online fitness coach/motivator
Where You’ve Seen Him – Instagram, Iconic Nightclub, Vegas fitness facilities
Some people talk about fitness and some actually live it. The best of these are people who share their knowledge and strive to motivate others that are on their own journeys. Through loss and rough times, Ivan Alex Cruz has had his share of depression. And his body fell far from where it is today.
Depression sucks. Losing someone close to you sucks. Watching yourself deteriorate in self-pity and remorse…Sucks (been there, done that). However, victory is always through the highest and hottest flames. If you’re going through hell… Keep going… Cause what comes after is priceless… Nothing can ever hurt you again… And even if it does… You’ve already walked through hell.
A loss in my family tore me down back in 2016, and I can finally say I got it back in 2019 💪 I feel the best I ever have. Fall down 7 times but make sure you stand up that 8th time because it is absolutely worth it. Never stop believing and never quit on your dreams.
Cruz got through his sadness, learned from the experience and began living with a fresh new attitude…one that he eagerly shares with others looking to do the same. With his 4 and 12-week programs, he provides dietary advice, workout plans and ways to stay positive. And a cheeky little book called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck” is high on his list of recommended reading.
While he’s super-serious when it comes to fitness and nutrition, Alex is a fun-loving guy. Swimming, hiking, traveling and spending time with family and loved ones are top priorities. That dazzling smile reveals a sly (and slightly dry) sense of humor that may surprise you. It might also explain his tendency to pose with donuts and fierce wild animals.
Last summer, the strapping stud joined the team at Iconic Nightclub and drew well-deserved gasps from patrons strolling in for a drink. Who wouldn’t want a signature cocktail hand-crafted and shaken by those arms? Let’s not even talk about his bartending uniform. Sigh…
Noteworthy traits – bright white teeth, movie-star voice, head-to-toe muscle
Lee Richard Lucka – stylist/dancer/model/brand ambassador
Where You’ve Seen Him – “Aussie Heat”, “Men of Vegas”, Noel Dahl photography
Of all of the “Hot Guys of Vegas” columns this writer has penned, no entry has been more difficult to compose than this one. Why? Because Lee Richard Lucka defies categorization! That makes his inclusion in “Men On The Go” perfect since you never know where you’re going to find this dude.
I first met Lee while he was working the crowds as a host for Miracle Mile Shops V Theater a few years ago. Since then he has crisscrossed and zipped through the city like a high-tech drone on Red Bull. He’s always flying over/under the radar, behind the scenes and then suddenly right in front of you. You never know where Lee will land, but when he does, he always brightens up the room.
Hiking with companion (and SEX TIPS star) Louis D’Aprile…
With piercing eyes, an alluring smile and brooding good looks, the former Chicago resident is a veritable people magnet. I’ve combed his social media pages at length trying to find more than a few solo pics of the handsome hunk…but there’s always someone wrapped around him, cheesing in the background or joining him for a hug.
That’s not to say that Lee’s life is all about fun. The Indiana-born hunk attended Columbia Chicago College and International Academy before becoming a top hairstylist in a prestigious Windy City salon. Since then the 6-foot-2 Greco-Italian has toggled between life in Los Angeles and here in Las Vegas.
Despite his matinee-idol looks, Lee is quite humble and maybe even a little introverted:
I’m a Taurus. I drive a Taurus. I’m addicited to the movies SCREAM, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I’m lame!
Lame or not (I’m going with “not”), Lucka stands out in a crowd. That makes him a go-to model/brand ambassador for Best Agency, and he’s done similar work for private events on behalf of Destination by Design. And although he’s contributed his talents behind the scenes for productions like Vegas! The Show and Aussie Heat, the animal lover wouldn’t mind trying his hand at a major male revue like Chippendales. I for one would line up to see that!
Noteworthy traits – carefully-groomed scruff, spectacular hair, towering physique
Jason Wehner – muscle-stud mixologist
Where You’ve Seen Him – Senor Frog’s DRAG BRUNCH at Treasure Island
The final hunk in this month’s column is Jason Wehner. He’s big…he’s buff…and he’s as silent as he is intimidating. But walk over to his bar for a cocktail and the beefy bruiser becomes a sweet gentleman, mixing your drink with a smile and making you feel right at home.
Jason’s been a fixture at Senor Frog’s DRAG BRUNCH for several years. In fact, I couldn’t resist highlighting him in my original review of the outrageous entertainment gala. Here’s what I said back in 2016:
If you’re feeling a little insecure, the basic admission package includes unlimited mimosas, served by beefy masculine bartenders. That should help to loosen your inhibitions and prepare you for the wild ride ahead.
As usual, the strong silent types don’t have much of a social media presence, and Jason admits “I suck on Facebook”. But during a recent visit to the show/brunch, he guided me to his Instagram page, where he goes by the name of @Turbo50000. The account lists him as an owner of both Brickhouse Clothing and Luxe Tours.
Even though his private life is shrouded in secrecy, Jason proudly shows off photos of his background in football and competitive bodybuilding. He’s clearly got a thing for wild thrills, fast cars, faster motorcycles and the occasional 45-pound bag of protein powder. Because living the dream requires adrenaline, ambition…and a whole lotta muscle.
It should come as no surprise that the tougher the exterior, the more tender they are on the inside. Jason truly is a gentle soul who loves animals, children, and pretty ladies. So if your baby doll every gets kidnapped, you can count on Jason to launch a rescue operation, bust down the door and bring her safely back home. What a hero!
Noteworthy traits – beefy tattoos, beefier arms, intimidating gaze
