Ok, don't judge me, but I find something hot about Andy Dean. Andy Dean you say, that obnoxious, rude, loud mouthed former Apprentice contestant now all over cable news supporting Trump... yup. Now, I don't agree with a word that comes out of his mouth, and most times want to strangle him. (much like I think Anderson Cooper wanted to do below) but there is, something... about him.
Andy reminds me of this kid I went to school with, loud, insulting and cruel, a bully. Yet, when you saw where he came from, you sort of respected that he actually got out of bed each morning and came to school. Dean isn't dumb, but it's too bad he's currently choosing to act as one of Trump's pit bulls. Unless his cute little mouth was duct taped shut, I wouldn't want to spend any time time with him, but with his mouth taped shut, and the rest of that duct tape, I might be able to have fun for a half hour or so.
Not a shock Dean surf's in a shirt and shorts down around his knee's.
Over the last eight plus years, I have done over 50 posts focusing on Broadway Bares. Although I have been to several Broadway shows, I have yet to be in New York during the annual spring event.

Although I still get excited when the promotion begins, I have to admit I have lost a bit of interest the last few years. The organizers seem to have chosen to limit the amount of images and videos that used to come from the event. I am not sure exactly why, unless it was requested from the actors, as the videos and images that came out following each show seemed to me, to only add to the greatness of the event.
Given we all can't be in New York on the night, it was also a great way to bring a little bit of Broadway, and a little bit of all the g-strings and jock straps to all of those who have supported Broadway and the arts over the years. So many of the actors, singers and dancers that I love and cover have been a part of the show over the years. Maybe the new site, BroadwayHD might one day add some Broadway Bares to their line up of shows!
Although some of the videos have been deleted, if you want to relive the last 8 years of Broadway Bares on FH, check out the link HERE: to check out some of my posts, and some of my favorite highlights from the last 8 years.
The last time we joined NICKET on a shoot with Gabriel, the California based photographer was also shooting one incredible body next to another body, a body of water. In that piece, Strange Movements, Nicholas shot Gabriel with the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and the Pacific Ocean as his background.
The body of water cascading beside Gabriel for this shoot is not as huge as the Pacific, but it no less worthy as a setting for Nicholas' images. This shoot was also originally planned as a beach shoot, but unfortunately with the shoot taking place on a holiday, combined with incredible California weather, the crowds on the beach that day made shooting on the beach impossible.
Sometimes however complications work out, and in this case it led Nicholas to discover an all new location. The shoot along the river, especially with Gabriel's spontaneity created an incredible day of shooting. Although, unlike the beach, there were not hundreds of people lining the shores of the river. There were enough people around however, enjoying an afternoon stroll, to cause Gabriel to quickly cover up or jump behind a bush a few times.
'Another surprise of the day was the start of a beard and moustache Gabriel was sporting for a role in Carmen. His background in dancing helps to create graceful, creative poses even in new and unplanned locations'.
With Gabriel's beautiful body, long lines and graceful poses it would be easy to ignore some of his other impressive assets. The more time I spent piecing together the piece, the more I was drawn in by his beautiful brown eyes and engaging smile. Whether in jeans, his baby blue Andrew Christian undies or in nothing at all, I don't think anyone walking along the river could help themselves from taking a second, third and forth glance as Gabriel passed by.
