Hunk Monk Pictures Go Viral
The Interwebs love finding hot men in offbeat paths. There is Arshad Khan, the blue-eyed chai-wallah from Islamabad who is hotter than the piping hot chai he was making streetside who, after becoming a social media sensation, secured numerous modeling gigs. Then there’s “hot convict” Jeremy Meeks. He was so hot, his mugshot went viral and he landed a fashion modeling contract. Now we have another viral hunk to drool over, Thailand’s Buddhist monk hunk.
Allegedly, the hunky monk posted the picture of himself online to bring awareness to the health of monks but unfortunately, no one can seem to locate the original post. This holy hottie wanted to express the importance of monks staying healthy and strong with exercise. He also wanted to bring awareness to the fact that the sweet, fatty, and salty foods people bring as alms to the monks can make monks ill as it increases risks of diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease.
Some criticized the monk for being vain. Many argued that monks are supposed to stay focused on the nature of the universe, not their looks. However, there were some posts that implied the pictures are from 2011 and the man is a weightlifter who was just ordained for a few days, a common occurrence among Thai men apparently.
Whether this hunk was a weightlifter from before or just a weight lifting monk, we’re not yet sure. We look forward to finding out is how many modeling contracts he’ll secure after this weekend!
