X Factor's Steve Jones Exposes His Hot And Hairy Chest On Ellen

He may not be as popular as Ryan Seacrest yet, but he's definitely got the goods in our opinion!

X Factor host Steve Jones sat down to chat with Ellen DeGeneres about what it's like to host the hit reality competition show compared to his old gig as a male model.

That's inneresting stuff, but all we really cared about was when Ellen dared him to take off his shirt in front of the camera and put on a custom t-shirt she made for him.

Thankfully, he accepts the challenge and bares his hawt, hairy Welsh chest for all of America to see!

If you want to see this hunk go shirtless for Ellen, watch the video above (and fast forward to the 2:30 mark)!

Welsh Rugby Captain Jed Hooper Comes Out Of The Closet

Jed Hooper

One gay rugby player retires and another comes out! We like what's happening here!

Jed Hooper, a rugby captain for the Wales' Old Redcliffians, has publicly announced that he is a proud homosexual.

The 22-year-old Welsh player, described as a fierce competitor on the field, spoke to sources about why he decided to come out of the closet, saying:

"I met someone earlier this year who said he could not be with someone who was in the closet. That, basically, was the catalyst that I needed. Before that, I think I had already told about ten friends and their reaction was very positive so that gave me an inkling of what might happen. And I also thought if the crap really hits the fan then at least there are ten people on my side!"

Rather than telling a few select people at a time, Jed figured he'd just get it out there in one pitch. He decided to send out a mass text and share his sexuality with the world on Facebook, explaining:

"I was never going to do it bit by bit, that would have been too drawn out, so I decided to text everyone and also put it on Facebook…The text basically said something along the lines that 'I've been hiding it and fighting it for too long, and I can't hide any more. If you can accept me this way then great … and if you can't then I don't need you and you can get lost!'"

Who is going to argue with that?

Although he admits immediately regretting the decision for a few moments, he says "a massive weight" was lifted off of his shoulder when he saw all of the positive responses on Facebook, continuing:

"I was thinking to myself 'what have you done?, but very quickly I must have had 40 replies and all of them were positive…If I couldn't accept myself the way I am, how could I expect my friends to?"

He didn't just get support from his friends, family, and fans, but from his rugby club too! The athlete explains how the chairman of the Old Redcliffians was totally unphased by his announcement, saying:

"Being captain is a huge privilege, so when I made my announcement one of the first people I spoke to at Reds was our then chairman, Ray Massey. I said that if the club doesn't want a gay man as its figurehead I would understand and step down. But he was brilliant and said 'you're our captain and this doesn't change anything'. That support was massive to me."

Sexuality should not define a man, but we're so glad Jed has finally taken the last steps to fully accept his. We hope his courage will inspire other gay professional athletes to not only step out of the closet, but break out — LOUD and PROUD!

World's First Openly Gay Professional Male Athlete Retiring

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFitness

Gareth Thomas

Gareth Thomas, a Welsh rugby player who claimed the title of the world's first openly gay professional male athlete in 2009, has announced he's retiring.

His decision is a result of realizing he could no longer "give 100%" to the sport. He further explained his retirement in a statement, saying:

"I have listened to and discussed this decision with many of my family and close friends. My mind has told me that the time to retire is now. If you can't give 100% to rugby then you can't do it justice. This is a sad day but I know that my time has come to an end as a player. I do not know what lies ahead, but I feel the challenge of something different excites me more than another year of rugby. My passion for the amazing game will never end or leave me, however."

Retiring from what you love to do is always a tough decision to make, but we wish Gareth the best in the future! Although his sexuality shouldn't even be an issue, we will always respect his courage for coming out and not being afraid to be himself!
