Any of the millions of people that watched American Idol last night can tell you why Jon is my Hump Day Hottie this week. It's rock week on AI and this time the music was all Bon Jovi. Though there were some great performances, no one came close to Jon's rock star power. (Okay, Phil Stacey came really, really close!)

Now, he's had his moments... there were some looks in the early years that he probably wishes someone would erase from the 80s yearbook. (I mean, really. A leopard-print glove and fishnet shirt?)

But boy oh boy does he look good in a pair of tight leather pants. Okay, I'm sure he looks good in a tight pair of any kind of pants, but I think the leather brings it home.

There's something special about Jon. Those soulful eyes. That hair (in whatever style). The fact that he's been married to the same woman since 1989 and seems pleased as punch to have 4 kids. (Like when he said, on AI last night, that his kids love the show.) Or it might have something to do with his powerhouse voice.

Whatever makes Jon so quintessentially.... Jon, I like it.

what I'm reading ... Two For the Dough by Janet Evanovich (who has shamelessly dragged me off-track on the whole RITA reading thing)

I don't like to "advertise" it, but I too am a Bon Jovi fan!! More for the rockin' 80's power ballads than the looks, but he's kind of a hottie too.
And he's not a bad actor, when he chooses to do so.
And my mom pronounces his name Bon Joveee (as though he were an Italian Count or Lord), which amuses me to NO END!!! ;) Happy hump day.

Oh, I've loved Jon since I was a teen. He is so dang nice that it just really ups his hotness! I agree with Alex about his acting, I always really liked anything he did. Remember Moonlight & Valentino? Good choice, TLC!

I think he's still sexy even after all of these years (although I think Vanilla Ice is cute still, too, so my "flavors" might be off)

Oh, yes, TLC, he's definitely Hump Day Hottie material! Thanks for this eye-ful!

Oh Jon. You are unfairly beautiful.
