In an article that’s gone viral for its numbing awfulness, the New York Post has achieved something extraordinary: profiling a dreadful man and somehow managing to include lots of other dreadful people as well!
When it came to dating in New York as a 30-something executive in private equity, Dan Rochkind had no problem snagging the city’s most beautiful women.
“I could have [anyone] I wanted,” says Rochkind, now 40 and an Upper East Sider with a muscular build and a full head of hair. “I met some nice people, but realistically I went for the hottest girl you could find.”
We read the article and thought, “Hahaha, it is a real-life Alistair!” Alistair is the awful snob Cate is dating at the start of The Hot Guy, who dumps her for making a YOLO joke.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY. We just stumbled across this BuzzFeed video about different ideals of hotness in different countries. (It also claims our homegrown Hemsworths are considered among the world’s hottest guys.)
In The Hot Guy we deliberately don’t describe our protagonist Adam, so you can imagine he looks like whatever you consider hot. Which of these hilarious models is your favourite?
More hotness in the news!
Salon has just published a story on ‘closing the orgasm gap’. Gird yourself for this shocking revelation: a new study in the journal Evolutionary Psychology has shown that women, astonishingly, don’t have to be in love with someone to get their rocks off.
Here’s some more hotness in the news! We spotted this cotton tale on Victoria Police social media:
Constable Stewart hopped to the rescue for an unlikely victim in Derrimut yesterday.
The black and white bun was being chased by a felon of the feline kind when Const Stewart stepped in and scooped him up.
After a quick visit to the local vet, the rabbit was given the all-clear.
However, at least half the Facebook comments are from thirsty women who’d like Constable Stewart to cradle their buns. Click through to see if you agree!
We go to a lot of media screenings at Cinema Nova in Carlton, and once I (Mel) was incredibly excited to see that one of the ushers there was hot! It was just like our novel, in which the Hot Guy works part-time at a cinema.
I told Anthony, “It’s like we have conjured the Hot Guy into real life with our imaginations!” and he just looked at me pityingly.
