Town: Edwards

Age: 23

Job: finance coordinator for the Vail Valley Foundation in Avon

Hobbies: guitar, singing, skiing, snowboarding, cooking and everything outdoors

This Chicago native is the whole package. Not only does Chris Losacco have a job in finance, he’s creative, too. This musically-inclined hunk been in 20 different bands over the course of his life. Easy going and funny, Losacco runs a business reselling guitars. Maybe if you’re lucky, ladies, he’ll serenade you.

Vail Daily: What’s your ideal first date?

Chris Losacco: A low key concert

VD: What’s the sexiest body part on a woman and why?

CL: Neck, because I feel like people overlook it.

VD: What is one thing you couldn’t live without?

CL: My guitars, or at least a guitar. I’m never without one.

VD: What qualities would your ideal girlfriend possess?

CL: She’d have to be as easy-going as I am, driven by what she loves, not what she feels like she wants. She’s got to have a sense of humor. My sense of humor is almost overbearing at times. I laugh at everything, so I need somebody who can just have fun, laugh with me.

VD: What’s the riskiest thing you’ve ever done?

CL: I’m always pushing the envelope as far as my snowboarding, so I would say a 60-foot cliff that I did in Jackson Hole.

Town: Edwards

Age: 29

Job: broker assistant with Slifer Smith and Frampton in Beaver Creek

Hobbies: riding horses, fly fishing, hunting and snowboarding

This Mississippi native is a real man, right down to his cowboy hat. When Josh Stuckey isn’t fly fishing on remote lakes, he likes to ride horses with friends. Enthusiastic and outgoing, he’ll will win you over with his southern charm.

Vail Daily: What are your dealbreakers?

JS: On a first date, I would say: Someone who’s not humorous or doesn’t like to laugh.

VD: What’s the sexiest body part on a woman, and why?

JS: I would have to say: A woman’s legs. And why? I don’t know. Legs are sexy, you know? Real tall, really good, defined legs.

VD: What’s the riskiest thing you’ve ever done?

JS: The riskiest thing I’ve ever done was probably stealing my dad’s friend’s Porsche and doing about 140 down the interstate.

VD: What’s your ideal first date?

JS: I think it would be awesome to do a horseback ride up in the mountains and then do a picnic and probably finish it off by the fireplace with a bottle of wine, watching a good movie.

VD: What advice do you have for girls who are trying to pick you up?

JS: Look good in a cowboy hat.

Town: Eagle-Vail

Age: 34

Job: Kitchen designer and draftsman for William Ohs Kitchen Cabinetry in Edwards

Hobbies: Surfing, tennis, golf, snowboarding, fly fishing

If you ask him nicely, perhaps Nordin will whisper sweet nothings into your ear about your dream kitchen. Not a cook? At the very least you’ll enjoy listening to his sexy South Africa accent. Adventurous and outgoing, Nordin is passionate about surfing. We love a man in a wetsuit.

What are your dealbreakers?

I would have to say: Smokers. And I’d have to say somebody who’s not very confident within themselves…I love people to be very healthy, health conscious, I guess.

What’s the sexiest body part on a woman?

That’s a very good question. It definitely differs from woman to woman. What is the sexiest part of a woman? I’m not going to go with the obvious: the butt or the legs. I’d have to say confidence.

What’s the riskiest thing you’ve ever done?

The riskiest thing I’ve probably done in terms of danger is surfing some serious waves, stuff where you have to be on top of your game. I guess the second riskiest thing would be giving up a big part of my life in South Africa and moving out here, knowing only one person. That’s pretty risky.

What qualities would your ideal girlfriend possess?

Confidence. A zest for life, passion for life. Definitely a creative side: That’s pretty important for me, you know, somebody that’s willing to step outside and think outside of the box and not just run with the status quo. Passion would have to be one of them.

What’s your coping mechanism?

It would have to be sport. Just to be able to get out and surf or be able to get out and snowboard or play a game of tennis or swim for that matter. It’s a great relief for me and it’s a way that I can kind of get back in tune with the things that I love.

Town: East Vail

Age: 23

Job: Server at Red Lion in Vail

Hobbies: Playing guitar, snowboarding and hockey

Matt Garth serves up hometown charm. Maybe you’ve seen this Eagle Valley High School alum waiting tables at the Red Lion in Vail. Get to know him better, and he’ll tell you about his passion for guitar. When he isn’t studying music at the University of Colorado, he can be found honing his unique mix of reggae, rock and blues. You’ll be his number one fan.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

My family

What advice do you have for girls who are trying to pick you up?

Don’t come off too clingy.

What’s the sexiest body part on a woman, and why?

…I love everything on a woman’s body but I think the belly is like an aphrodisiac.

What qualities would your ideal girlfriend possess?

I’d say she would have to be loyal, trustworthy, great smile ” just a loving, caring person.

What’s your coping mechanism?

I read this quote recently by Abraham Lincoln and he said ‘People are as happy as they make their minds up to be,’ and I really try to live by that day to day.

Town: Edwards

Age: 27

Job: Architect with VAg, Inc. in Avon

Hobbies: Fly fishing, cooking, snowboarding and design

How could you not fall for Justin Carr? This architect is good in the kitchen. He’ll cook you some fantastic Italian food (try his puttanesca), all with his signature smile. Outside the kitchen, Carr likes to spend his time fly fishing. In fact, he’s part of a local group that advocates for clean river systems. We’re certainly hooked.

Vail Daily: What are your dealbreakers?

Justin Carr: Someone who takes themselves too seriously. Somebody who doesn’t smile.

VD: What’s the sexiest body part on a woman and why?

JC: I think the eyes are definitely number one. And then I’m a big fan of the groove above your hips, the line.

VD: What’s the riskiest thing you’ve ever done?

JC: I just like to kind of live in the moment, whether it be signing up for a dating competition or throwing myself off a cliff when I don’t know what’s below it or going through rapids I’ve never even scouted before.

VD: What’s your ideal first date?

JC: I like to do something out of the ordinary, whether it be meeting on the mountain and hanging out throughout the day on the mountain and seeing kind of what you’re made of on skis or a snowboard or going on a float trip down the Colorado and coming back and cooking some dinner at home.

VD: What qualities would your ideal girlfriend posses?

JC: Sense of humor. I like people who are humble. And, like I said earlier, don’t take yourself too seriously. And beautiful.
