Tuesday Morning Man: Dr. Evan Antin!
Dr. Evan Antin is known as the world’s sexiest vet which I think sounds about right.
He is the host of the Animal Planet show Evan Goes Wild.
During the recent TV Critics Association Winter Tour he was asked by a journalist: “You are ridiculously handsome. Were you forced into this career because modeling said ‘No! We just can’t handle it?’”
Deadline Hollywood reports that Antin – named Sexiest Veterinarian Alive by People magazine – dodged the modeling issue, and said animals have always been his passion, his first pet being a bunny named Paco.
Animal Planet SVP Erin Wanner, however, who knew a good thing when she heard it, was not going to let the whole “hot vet” thing pass.
“We thought the same thing,“ she confessed of their first Antin sighting on Instagram (he has 1.1 million followers).
Upon further inspection, she reported happily, they learned he was “the real deal.”
Evan Goes Wild premieres Sunday, February 24. It has him chasing his wildlife bucket list including swimming alongside humpback whales in Tahiti, exploring caves with bats and snakes in the Philippines, and tangling with crocs in the Yucatan.
“People have this irrational fear” of wildlife, Antin said, adding, “I’d rather be bit by an 18-foot python than a hamster.”
