Checking in on some of my favorite InstaHunks this weekend. What can I say? I like to look at nice things 🙂

First up, Jeff Ferreira (above) says he’s ‘single in Rio de Janeiro,’ but I spy two wine glasses in the pic…

Wait a second, though, international performer and former Mr. Continental, Ramon Ventura, appears to be in Rio as well – so maybe we could get the two together?
