Within a week since we launched him as Online Hunk for October, Mark Whittington has become quite the talk of the Cosmo town. We saw your gushing comments and how much you loved clicking on his gorgeous photos. And since we love giving you what you want, we're giving you MORE of him this week!
To sustain the handyman fantasy we kicked off last week, we made Mark pose this week with a set of tools, which never looked sexier! We also dug deeper into this half-Pinoy, half-Brit's psyche and found out about his other weakness, apart from music: the ladies. This hunk, who grew up in Australia, revealed what he looks for in a woman and what he wishes girls did more often. He even divulged a sexy secret!
After you've read the interview, click through all 50 photos of Mark this week--unless you couldn't wait and that came first. Oh, if only all handymen were that HOT!
Describe your ideal girl.
My ideal girl is funny, good-looking of course, and very spontaneous, who goes for adventures. That kind of girl is my kind of girl.
What’s the first thing you notice in a girl?
Eyes and those pair below.
How do you prepare for a really special date?
I shower, that’s a very important one, 'cause if you stink, that’s not gonna go well. Uh, do one and two before leaving the house, just so you don’t have to do it on the date, hence the smell again. And yeah, get dressed. I’d say get dressed, ‘cause going on a date nude does not give a good impression.
How much do you usually spend on the first date?
Uh, I make her pay. 'Cause if she pays, then she’s into me. No, I’m joking (laughs). I don’t know, whatever it is.
Would you prefer to pay for everything or split the bill?
I prefer to pay for everything. I’m kind of old-fashioned. If she tries to offer to pay, then you know, I just tell her to put it all away in her purse.
Have you ever been rejected by a girl you asked on a date?
Many times. Many, many times.
How did it happen?
It was quite funny actually. I went down to ask, because her friend came up and said, “She’s only gonna go out with you if you ask her out face-to-face.” I said, "All right," so I went down and asked, “Hey, let's go out.” And then she goes forward and [says] four words: “Hell, no. You’re ugly.” And then they started dancing and singing like, “We rejected Mark!” Good.
How did you feel?
Devastated (laughs). No, I looked back and she wasn’t the good sort, so I pushed that aside.
How do you deal with rejection?
Laugh and move on to the next one.
Have you tried going on a blind date?
No. Oh, wait. I can’t remember. No, I don’t think so.
Would you be open to it?
Yeah. That would be fun.
What’s the one thing you don’t understand about women?
Emotions. That’s it.
If you had it your way, what do you want girls to do more often?
Can I say this on camera? No? Hand jobs. And enjoy it while you’re doing it (laughs).
Would you prefer that your girl has the same interests as you do, or do you want her to be into something different?
We have to have some things in common, I guess. But yeah, with her having her own likes and dislikes, that gives room for me to explore what I like and what I don’t like. You know what I mean? Like I can relate, not relate, find out more about other topics, other subjects, other hobbies, and so forth.
Watch for more photos and the next part of his interview next Wednesday!
