True story: I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday to get a sneak peek at Joe Manganiello’s new book, Evolution, and when I finally got over my embarrassment enough to sheepishly ask the clerk where it was, he said it was already sold out. But I have a sneaking suspicion that it was NOT solely in the hands of men who are looking for, as the whole title puts it, The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted. C’mon, ladies/gay men, fess up. You are wasting the True Blood star’s hard-earned wisdom by buying up these books just to stuff under your mattresses, aren’t you? I know, I have 10 guesses as to the totally wrong, non-fitness-related reasons you bought it.
1. You have watched this Men’s Health cover video so many times, Youtube has hired extra employees. It’s time the proceeds get back to Joe himself, isn’t it?
2. You are hoping to soothe the pain over the unsexiness of Eric’s full frontal and Alcide’s weird hair on last season’s True Blood finale.
3. This picture of Joe in high school gives you hope that the men in your life could one day look like him.
