Steve Jones Has ‘The X Factor’ As This Week’s Hump Day Hottie

Move over, Ryan Seacrest; there’s a new hosting hottie in town. Steve Jones will kick off his gig as the “The X Factor”’s emcee on Wednesday night, and we have to admit we might be too distracted by his good looks to notice any of the musical talent. That’s why Steve is this week’s Hump Day Hottie.

Check out this dreamy photo of Steve and then keep reading for more details about him!

Vital stats: The 34-year-old Welsh babe got his start as a model. He’s posed for the likes of Esquire and Versace. He lives in London, but now that he’s America’s latest soon-to-be TV obsession he might want to settle into a place this side of the pond.

Where you might have already seen him: He’s been all over British TV as a presenter (that’s what they call hosts over there, folks). He’s hosted the children’s variety program “T4,” the “Guinness World Records Smashed!” special, as well as “Drop Zone,” “Wedding Crashers” and “101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow.”

Why you should take notice of him now: He’s come to America. It was rumored he was going to co-host “The X Factor” alongside former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Now, the gigs’s all his as he tries to wrangle the talent and the judges (Nicole, L.A. Reid, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul) on the latest Fox competition series.

Welcome to the U.S., Steve. We already like what we’re seeing.

Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Steve by gawking at the photo above!
