There’s a reason that gay glossy DNA tapped Derrick Vargo as its man of the day: “adorable face, amazing abs, perfect pecs and beautiful butt.” The 23-year-old Nashville guy is even in Atlanta this weekend for a gym photo shoot.

But don’t mistake Vargo’s pretty face and sexy bod as anything other than all jock: He’s a semi-pro MMA fighter and former football player. So those photos of him being all athletic? All authentic.
