#MCM: How James Maslow Went From Big Time Rush to Big Time Hottie

Boy-bander and 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant is this week's Man Crush Monday.

He first caught our eye as the shaggy-haired brown-eyed cutie in the boy band Big Time Rush. Yet, in the past few months, James Maslow has turned into a Big Time Hottie, which is why he is MTV News’ pick for this week’s Man Crush Monday.

James is currently cha-cha-ing his way into our hearts on “Dancing With the Stars,” showing off his very impressive moves alongside partner and former flame Peta Murgatroyd. Somehow he is making those sparkly dance costumes work in his favor.

Of course Rushers aren’t too surprised that James can work the dance floor since he is a member of a boy band. Back in 2009, James, along with bandmates Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena and Logan Henderson, joined Nickelodeon’s TV sitcom “Big Time Rush,” and since then they have released three albums.

In his spare time James can be seen showing off his ridiculously fit body on the beach while surfing or spending time with his dog, who is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen.
