The Travel Bug Effect

NFL linebacker Dhani Jones is the newest addition to the Travel Channel family. On "Dhani Tackles the Globe", Jones can be seen jet setting across the country and taking in the most popular sports in the country that's hosting him.

This is a masculine spin on the typical travel shows that usually feature chefs (Extreme Foods with Andrew Zimmer, No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain), travel writers (Samantha Brown), or even playmates (Bridget's Sexiest Beaches). Finally, a show for the guy's guy... and boy oh boy, is Dhani Jones 100% man!

It's hard to talk about Jones without mentioning his uber sex appeal, eye candy status, or his stats. At 6'2", 235 lbs and a size 14 shoe Jones keeps me glued to my tv (mouth slightly ajar) and that 18.5" neck... it sends chills down my spine. Really, he is the prototype for the ideal man. Why can't they manufacture men like this? (sidebar: I can barely write this blog because I'm staring at his abs....)

But there's more to Dhani than meets the eye. This 31 yo is not only an 8 yr NFL veteran, but he's an entrepreneur too. He took his love of bow ties (think Farnsworth Bentley and Andre 3000) and founded Five Star Ties, his own line of men's accessories. When he's not on the field for the Cincinnati Bengals or designing for his fashion line, Jones enjoys writing poetry, oil-painting, and photography.

His show airs Monday nights 9p on the Travel Channel.

6'2" you say... I am a sucker for a tall handsome man with all his hair:-) I may check this out.

All his hair? That's funny...Yes, he has tons of hair, a great smile, his body is on point and his neck is off the chain. Maybe I'm just a sucker for muscular neck...but like, it's a neck to jawline ratio. There must a clearly defined difference between the two. lol...

I like a full head of nicely groomed hair! Blame it on my Dad. I have been known to ask sexy bald men if they can still grown hair. I am not ashamed! The smile is nice also. I have never been a fan of muscular necks, but I feel you about there needing to be a difference between the two. I like a nice back and broad shoulders which he has:-)

Football physiques do many things to me...many wonderfully delightful things. :) I could go on and on about my divine appreciation for the male athletic physique. Homeboy is getting a gold star, 2 thumbs up and seat in the front of my class...I love the crazy hair, muscles...he'd get devoured in my presence. lol...

sidebar: while the bball physique is cool, muscles on a lean (I call it skinny) guy is a turn off. Gain some weight. Nobody wants to be with a bunch of bones. I swear GNC has shakes you can drink...lol
