1. ChuanDo Tan, 51
This man has been blowing up over the Internet and it’s not hard to see why. ChuanDo is a fine specimen for his age and we still can’t believe he’s 53 years old. The hottie is a photographer from Singapore, and one half of photography duo ChuanDo&Frey. Better known as CD to his friends and within fashion circles, he is guaranteed to make your boyfriend or husband extremely jealous.
More recently, he’s been cast as a 30-something year-old doctor in a new drama coming out of Beijing, where he’s based. It’s his first lead acting role and he’s reportedly filmed a steamy sex scene for it. We can’t wait to watch those muscles flex!
ST sat down with the hunk for lunch over the weekend and he revealed how he keeps his body so fit and toned. The answer, my friend, is six poached eggs. “You are what you eat,” he says, and abides by the theory that how your body looks is 70 per cent due to the food you consume, and 30 per cent about exercise. “You wouldn’t want to look like a hamburger, right? I would rather look like a mean, lean chicken breast”, is how he puts it.

ChuanDo says he was overwhelmed by the attention he got earlier this month and stayed home for the first two days after his story went viral. He now has 424,000 followers from a mere 95k before. “One morning, I woke up, checked my phone and saw that my followers had increased to 105,000,” he recalls. He thought there was a mistake, then realised he had a tonne of messages too. “I was like, sh**, man.” The reaction, he explains, is because he’s actually a very shy person in real life!
