Show these heroes your support by voting for this year's Hunk In Heels!

*Votes are not automatically updated | Last updated 9.28.23 at 12:00AM EDT

Current Votes:


Jay Cash

Well first of all, I am dieting so I can be more "Hunky" and less "Chunky" in my heels so that should be enough to get me tons of votes. Secondly, I am probably going to need physical therapy after walking in the heels I have chosen. Lastly, a vote for me is a vote for all the over 50 crowd still out there doing challenging adventures.

Current Votes:


Connor Buis

Simple, HUNK is defined as a large piece of something, especially food. I don't know of a better definition for Connor Buis than a large chunk of food. PLUS, come on, wait until you see those heels!

Current Votes:


Patrick Durham

It's not the show, it's how I'm walking in it. Mr. Hunks In Heels 2023 needs to be ready to carry that title all year long!

Matt Baldwin

You want your kids to get good grades, don't you?

Tanner Mashburn

I decided to put on my shoes and "walk the walk" to do my small part in helping this amazing organization. It's crucial to raise awareness for this community group that's empowering survivors to regain their independence. Their efforts are making a significant impact, and I'm grateful to have the opportunity to assist them however I can.

Current Votes:


Christopher Law

As your "Mr. December," although I may be elf sized, I will stand tall(er) on these heels. I can promise you this, if you vote for me, I'll make sure you make it on the nice list for Christmas this year.

Current Votes:


Javier Mercado

You should vote for me to be Mr. Hunks In Heels because while I do not believe I look good in heels, I am willing to make a change and bring more awareness to domestic violence while wearing heels.
