Over in the female thread, Olympia commented that:
So, being a straight man and seeing this as a challenge, I have decided to attempt to make a list of handsome males.

So, I make no apology that this list predominantly consists of skaters I tend to support because I like their skating!
Florent Amodio: Firstly, I like his skin tone. I have always tended to find women that are the same colour as Florent attractive, so that is hardly surprising. Although he has lived in France for so long, Florent still has that typical Brazilian exuberance. But, he has also picked up the typical French arrogance. Put together, these give him a real presence, which is one of the things I love about him. On the other hand, I personally don’t understand what women see in muscular men.
Brian Joubert: Come on, few people can deny that Brian is probably the most handsome guy on the circuit! While Brian is undoubtedly flamboyant when he is skating, it is not in the same way as Florent. Like Florent, Brian has the typical French arrogance, but it is a more confident and controlled arrogance than the emotional Brazilian. But, unlike a certain highly-successful female Korean skater, it is not cockiness.
Artur Gachinski: Love his hair! I have always wanted to grow my hair long, just like Artur’s. But, I am one of those people that when their hair starts creeping over their ear, it feels uncomfortable. Artur also has the advantage of youth on his side. He has a great body, which we know about because he is not adverse to showing it off. If there was one skater I would want to look like, it would probably be Artur.
Fabian Bourzat: Can’t really think of what to say about Fabian, except that he has the hair, and he has an air of confidence about him (Not quite to the extent of Brian and Florent, but it’s still there). Plus, he normally has Nathalie Pechalat attached to his arm, which is always a bonus!
Charlie White: Hair again! But, he seems to be a generally happier sort of a character than the other “hair guys” I have listed.
Daisuke Takahashi: As you’ve probably worked out by now, I’ve always loved all things Japanese. Normally, I would hate the greasy look. But, Daisuke looks every inch the pop star. He is so confident and doesn’t let anything phase him. Kinda like Brian, in that respect.
Yuzuru Hanyu: If he were in a boy band, Yuzuru would be “the cute one” that all the girls would be trying to get the attention of. But, what I like about him is that he doesn’t realise this, or at least doesn’t let it go to his head. He seems so down to earth. And that is a very attractive feature in, well, anybody.
Dennis Ten: As with the Japanese, I love all things Korean (which, let’s face it, Dennis is!) There is no denying that Dennis is “cute”. But, he is far too serious! If only he could cheer up a bit, it would improve things greatly. Kinda like I said about Anastasia Martiusheva in the female thread. But, I suspect that with Dennis, some good results would make all the difference in his outlook.
Scott Moir: Scott falls into the same category as Dennis in that he is far too serious! Maybe it was because of the Olympics being in Canada that year, but back in 2010 he seemed like a good-looking, fun young guy. Remember their gala routine in Vancouver? Now, he’s so serious, and it’s putting years on him.
Since I joined this forum, I have made it obvious that I fancy Liza Tuktamysheva like mad. But, despite this, I am not going to include Johnny Weir in this list. Whilst I can see some similarity between them, I don’t think it is as big as a lot of people make out.
So, there you have it. A straight guy making a list of handsome guys. It’s not something I ever plan to repeat - it was far too difficult!!!
Javi, Javi, Javi..... Fabian and Robin S. Morozov ain't too shabby either.
I thought I was the only one who saw the similarities between Tukh and Johnny!!1

Thank you senatormls for mentioning Javi. I had been planning on including him in my list all along, but forgot all about him by the time I got round to typing it out! Oops!

He comes across as somebody who you could stop in the street, and who would willingly laugh and joke with you for ages! How could anybody not find that attractive?! As for his looks, I have to admit that I thought he was better-looking when he was younger. You know, before he started looking like every other Spanish bloke around!
Trust me, you’re certainly not the only one! It’s even an on-going joke between them.

Also, I remember a very strange photo somebody posted on Liza’s vKontakte profile last year in which they are morphing photos of Liza into photos of Johnny. Frankly, it was a bit creepy. And not too convincing either!
A few months ago, I made a “Happy Birthday” message for posting on Liza’s profile. Beforehand, I did a Google Image search to see if I could find any nice photos of her that I hadn’t seen before. And I did find some nice ones!
One photo I found was of Liza practicing on a rink somewhere. It was before Liza had moved into the senior ranks. She was not as well-known at the time as she is now, and the uploader had forgot to label who it was. So, there were at least 7 or 8 comments saying something along the lines of “Oh, that’s gotta be Johnny’s sister!” After a while, the uploader came back, apologised and explained that she was an up-and-coming Russian skater called Elizaveta Tuktamisheva. And the concensus amongst the comments was total disbelief that this wee girl was not related to Johnny in any way!
Unfortunately, I can’t find that page again! But, there are plenty of other pages where people are commenting that they look like each other. Even on this forum:
Incidentally, that comment was posted on here exactly a year ago today.

Ilia Kulik is my all time favorite, followed closely by Brian Joubert. Both of them are drop dead gorgeous, without being narcissistic about it.
Unf. Ilia. end thread.

I'd like to add Andrew Poje & Luca Lanotte to my original list of Max Aaron & Ross Miner.
