Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah. If you’re one of the lucky Jews out there who still gets a sick present for every one of the 8 (crazy) nights, kudos to you. Bitch. If you’re like us here at CollegeCandy, you get a Starbucks gift card from your grandpa for $18 and a “what? I don’t do enough for you all year?” guilt trip from your mom.
If you fall into the latter category, don’t fret; CollegeCandy’s got your back. We’re bringing you the 8 Hotties of Hanukkah, one for each glorious latke-eating day. Because at the end of the day, as your Hanukkah candles are burning low and dripping wax all over your desk, unwrapping a Kindle is cool, but flipping through pictures of some sexy Jewy six-packs is H.O.T.
That, my friends, is the gift that keeps on giving.
First up is none other than Jake “I’m Hotter Than a Fresh Latke” Gyllenhaal. We’re shaking-in-our-stained-Ugg-boots-excited for his new movie with Anne Hathaway. What’s sexier than a man who is so comfortable with his own body that he has no problem showing it off on the big screen? Answer: when that man is Jake Gyllenhaal. Not only is he an international superstar who gets cast in big blockbuster after big blockbuster, but he also knows how to show off his indie side in only-makes-sense-when-you-are-stoned-films like Donnie Darko.
Move over T. Swift, he’s all ours.
