Who’s that hottie on the cover of our calendar? It’s Shannon Kook, the South African-born, Canada-raised hottie Shannon Kook, which you may recognize from the popular television series, Degrassi: The Next Generation. From 2010-11, he played Zane Park, the cute, openly gay jock with the wild, spiky hair.

The way he made viewers feel can only be properly expressed through a fan video:

He also plays Drew in the hit supernatural thriller The Conjuring, directed by James Wan, Trey in Dark Places, and Theo on the web series Carmilla. He’s currently shooting The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, scheduled for a Summer 2016 release.

What’s it like to be
The very first Haikus with
Hotties cover boy?

If you can guess what
I’m thinking on that cover –
That would sum it up.

Is it offensive
To stare a little too long
At your six-pack abs?

I’m sprawled across a chaise lounge –
Stare till it feels wrong.
“Wrong” is our theme song.

What did you learn from
Your research? Does sex appeal
Affect poetry?

Your beauty lies not
In the reflection of eyes
But the voice inside.
