Guilty Pleasure...

Guilty Pleasure never disappoints and this time it's no exception. Chase Hostler (God/parent given name) is more than just a pretty face. At 25, this little boy in the big New York City has already found fame in the dance, fashion and modelling industry, and he's as gay as he comes!

Seriously, I was SO privilege to have him with me (not physically... although that would be nice too) to talk about his breakfast, his career, his sexiest body part, his gay dogs and his advice to all the gay youth out there. So sit back, relax and hold on tight 'cause this ride is gonna blow your mind!

PR8: First of all, thank you so much for doing this interview with me. So how are you feeling today Mr. Hostler? And what did you have for breakfast this morning?
Chase: I'm feeling a bit exhausted to be honest with you. This past weekend was a bit of a doozy. I danced at five events in one weekend (Rockit, Club 57, Black Party, Alegria, and Eddie Elias' afterparty) and my legs feel about ready to abandon ship. I woke up today and got myself a bit of oatmeal covered in cinnamon, a sausage egg and cheese from the deli and made myself a little amino acid cocktail, then on to the office.

For those who haven't heard about you, can you summarise Chase in FIVE words?
Everything is in my dance.

Are you a full-time model or leading a secret double life?
I do several things in my day to day life to bring in the honey. During the week I work full time for a fashion photography agency working for a lot of great photographers shooting in the fashion advertising industry. I also manage talent for a few clubs in the city getting the best boys in order and making sure I keep the life of the party up, and I dance at a few large parties here in New York and at other events in cities around the country and hopefully a few in Europe soon.

How did you first get into the whole modelling business?
Well first off, I don't really consider myself a model. I'm much too short to make any great deal of money from modelling, so I would most likely be subject to only workout shoots in fitness magazines. Not my type of thing. I started taking pictures because I loved looking at the photos in magazines, I wanted to be a part of the creation of such beautiful moments that existed in time and show them in a way that someone might not see in person. It's due to the right combination of good luck with the gene pool, exhibitionism, and that interest in photography that I began modelling in my pictures. It's something that has recently taken off with the start of my blog.

What are some of the ups and downs of being a model?
I love taking photos, and it's not a profession for me so I don't really get weighed down by anything negative in regards to modelling. The only thing is after a long day of shooting my body can find itself in pain in some of the strangest places from holding certain poses for long periods of time.

I'm sure my readers will agree with me that you have an AMAZING body! How do you keep in such great shape?
EAT! EAT! EAT! I've never been able to watch how much I eat, so I at least try to watch what I eat. I slip up a lot, and have a sweet tooth that is unrivalled, but I make sure I keep a good workout routine. My advice is start with oatmeal in the morning (it's easy for the body to break down quickly and get your metabolism going), big lunch and small dinner. I work one body part a day 5 days a week and make sure I tear the muscle I'm working on so that my body needs to create scar tissue to heal that muscle and thus make it bigger. Finally I dance every night of the weekend like I'm never going to dance again... and that keeps that sweet tooth in check.

Complete the sentence, "The sexiest part of my body is..."?
My Face! It's the one thing I haven't had to do any work to and the one I'm most thankful for.

Are you currently single or madly in love with someone?
I'm madly in love with myself lol! But seriousl, I'm recently single, going on 3 weeks now. I'm still hopelessly in love with my ex-boyfriend, he's an amazing man, but our lives were two different to be one. I have a lot of love to give though, I believe love isn't something that comes and goes, just merely changes forms. And I am always looking for another person to share that love with.

Imagine, I'm about to ask you out on a date. What do I need to do to make it perfect and downright romantic?
Presents lol!

You are my Guilty Pleasure for today, but what is your guilty pleasure?
I'm secretly a big nerd. I love video games and I like the type of games that most likely have conventions in hotels in Nebraska that people dress up like the characters for and act out battles. I can sit through a 6 hour session with my PlayStation 3 easily.

What is something in your home that would make a stranger think you were gay?
Something gay, thats hard. Theres a lot! I like decor and most things I have are pretty gay, mostly because they are nice design or antique. But I would say most people, when they see my dogs, they know. I have two little munchkins, Miska (a Yorkie Chihuahua who looks like Toto and needs to start a modeling career of her own cuz papa's needs some extra money) and Julio (a slighty retarded but incredibly sweet Toy Rat Terrier). Total gay dogs.

And what is something that might make a stranger think you were straight?
Something from my home that would make someone think I was straight? Errr, my front door? Thats where it ends!

And now, here comes the brainstorm session. Ready?
Favourite bar in the Big Apple? I don't drink so I don't find myself in the bar scene all that much, but my favorite club here is Pacha, you are bound to find a good DJ spinning there.
Favourite drink? Chocolate chip cookie milkshake.
Favourite holiday spot? Home with the family.
Favourite superhero? I just want to fly! That would just have to be the bee's knees!
Favourite undies? Briefs. A man needs support lol!
What's next for Chase? You'll just have to watch and find out!

Why am I asking all these questions?
If there's some piece of advice I could impart to a reader of this it would be to any of the young gays out there (perhaps from small towns like my own) who stumble on this while browsing through sexy pictures of guys in secret, afraid of the bullying they might face or the rejection they might encounter for being themselves and loving who they are. I would tell them to stay strong and hold tight, make it through their adolescent years. If you stay educated and be the best at everything you do, you can make it to a place where there will be people who love you for everything you are. Always remember you are probably much smarter than person who teases you.

And last but not least. Gaga. Yay or nay?
I'm yet undecided on Gaga. I think she does great things, but I want to see her develop. Before Gaga there was Roisin Murphy (Moloko) who did Gaga's show and did it better, and she continues to make great music and wear amazing clothing without being so overindulgent.

Thank you for this post. The pic of Chase in the laceup vest/corset is a photo I have been absolutely fascinated with since I first saw it. I never knew who it was, and thanks to you, I now have a name for that picture.
