Daddy Hunks: 10 Shirtless Television Dads. Hah. Survivor host Jeff Probst has a guest-acting gig on the latest season of Two and a Half Men and he’s going to be as nekkid as the day he was born. Actually, he’s not totally clothes-free but will reportedly wear the teeniest of underwear that you can imagine him wearing. Hehe. Here’s a still pic of Jeff’s Two and a Half Men appearance:
Say what you will about Probst’s favoritism for his man-crushes in Survivor but you still gotta give him a lot of props for being in great shape. Can you believe he’s 52 years old? He’s in better shape than our 33 year old beau!
During an interview on the Today show, Jeff tells us more about his role and how he came to get it:
I’m playing a version of me. I just jokingly mean that, I’m not typically walking around n*ked with a plate of bacon. I don’t really eat bacon. I got a call from the casting director. I happen to be friends with [Jon] Cryer and I texted him and he said, ‘I just read the script. It’s really funny. You should do it.’ That was it. And then they said, ‘Oh by the way, you’ll be n*ked.’ I mean, how can you turn down ‘Two and a Half Men?’ — one of the greatest comedies of all time.’
Jeff’s acting gig inspired us to look for other television daddies who can put their younger counterparts to shame. Let’s check them out, shall we?

There’s no way we’re not going to include the handsome Rob Lowe (now 49 years old) in this list of TV daddy hunks. Aside from starring in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, Rob also stars as John F. Kennedy in the made-for-television movie, Killing Kennedy, which premiered five days ago on the National Geographic Channel (or Nat Geo).
We know him more as a movie star but Chris O’Donnell also succeeded in his TV acting gigs and is now one of the leads of the CBS procedural NCIS: Los Angeles. Here’s a screencap of a shirtless Chris from an NCIS episode. For those of you wondering, Chris is now 43 years old.
