Tyson Beckford to strip down as Chippendales' latest guest host

Supermodel Tyson Beckford heading to Chippendales Las Vegas for four-week run in the spring

Tyson Beckford and his washboard abs can next be seen in Chippendales' spring revue. 

The former "America's Next Top Model" judge will be stripping down on the Las Vegas Strip and strutting his stuff during a four-week run of the stage show, which debuts on April 30 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

"I am really excited to join the Chippendales show in Las Vegas," the 44-year-old said in a statement on Wednesday. "These guys provide a flirty and sexy yet playful experience for women, and being a part of that party each night just seems like fun."

The "Make Me a Supermodel" host, who has also acted and produced, broke out in the modeling world in 1994 and has appeared in several Ralph Lauren campaigns. He also appeared in 2001's "Zoolander," in Britney Spears' "Toxic" music video and Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart" video.

Beckford isn't the first celebrity to guest host the bachelorette party-friendly 18-and-older show with the erotic dancing troupe. "Sharknado" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum Ian Ziering headlined the burlesque show and sold out a six-week run in summer 2013 and another six-week run last summer.
