Tyson Beckford wears cuffs and collar in 'Chippendales' as a guest host this spring

Tyson Beckford's hosting gig in "Chippendales" ties in with his new movie "Chocolate City"

Ralph Lauren Polo model and host of Bravo’s “Make Me a Supermodel” Tyson Beckford steps off the runway and onto the stage when he joins “Chippendales: The Show” as a guest host in April.

For four weeks, Beckford and his sculpted abs don the cuffs and collars in the show dubbed “the ultimate Las Vegas Girls Night Out” at the off-Strip Rio.

He joins the 10 chiseled Chippendales, including regular dancers Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, who came in second on the 21st season of “The Amazing Race.”

The hosting gig ties in nicely with his new film “Chocolate City,” coming out on March 19. The movie features an all-male African-American strip club, so Beckford already has had lessons on how to shimmy on stage for screaming bachelorettes and brides-to-be.

Beckford, who was named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and “Sexiest Male Model,” has appeared in Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart,” 50 Cent’s “21 Questions” and Britney Spears’ “Toxic” music videos as well as films such as “Zoolander” and “Addicted.”

Chippendales has a man for every woman. Construction workers with welding tools and sledgehammers, cowboys sashaying to “Save a Horse [Ride a Cowboy],” naval officers and firefighters wielding hoses are just some of the fantasies fulfilled at the show.

Beckford’s guest hosting duties run Thursdays through Sundays April 30 through May 24.

Beckford isn’t the first celebrity host for the show. “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Sharknado” star Ian Ziering, actor and game show host Joey Lawrence, and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees fame all took their turns as the leading man for the show.

Tickets start at $54.95.

Tickets: "Chippendales, The Show," (702) 777-2782
