1. Kris Evans

 

  • No Alex Orioli???? Seriously???!!!

    • JJ

      You know, he does cam work at Flirt4free. He is nice. You should go check him out there.

  • Spongey

    Lukas at #2, that’s crazy talk!!

    • hatefulmoz

      It’s a travesty.

    • Jason

      Yep. He should have been lower.

  • Tellingthetruth

    Great List! The top 10 really are solid. Jack, Dolph, Lukas, Josh, Mick, Kevin, Kris all belong there. It’s a hard bunch of perfection to rank tho!!!

  • Todd
    • Zues

      No thanks you can keep that

      • Todd

        Will do !

    • Who’s the bottom

      • von schlomo

        Troy Allen.

    • WhimsyCotton

      Trevor Yates had such a cute face! What the hell happened to it?

    • von schlomo

      Trevor was just a huge dick. If he had a needle dick his mediocre face and ordinary body would have stayed at Hammer.

  • ansonsf

    Fair list, Zach. Hoyt Kogan is relatively new so his high ranking is a pleasant surprise. Kev and Jack in the top 5 is well deserved.

  • ansonsf

    Kevin wins Miss Congeniality!

  • R.A.M.J

    Can you really go wrong with any of them?

  • stephen

    Lukas winding up at anything other than #1?

    • Where is this fabulous gif from

      • sxg

        It’s brilliant isn’t it?

    • hatefulmoz

      Amen. This is bullshit.

    • nodoubtfan
      • sxg

        Like 95% of these are the same as what black women say!

        • pangelboy

          You were surprised by that? …cute for you.

        • Mihcael Davies

          exactly….

    • Mike Julius

      Your taste in this matter is flaw-free. (Kid Fury gif included.)

  • sxg

    Max/Pavel Novotny not breaking the top 10?!?!?

    https://dirtymoney.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/fail.gif

    He, along with just a handful of others among this list, is one of the ONLY few that are actually great performers! The majority of the Bel Ami models can’t fake a good performance to save their lives!

  • elle

    SHAME ON THIS LIST …AGAIN! blasphemy

  • Corax95

    Lukas should be #1!

  • I think when I first saw gay porn it featured Pavel Novotny. Dial up internet back then…

    • sxg

      Yea him and Lukas Ridgeston REALLY helped make Bel Ami what it is today. I would have never known about Bel Ami if it weren’t for Lukas. And I would have never given czech/hungarian gay porn much notice if it wasn’t for Pavel/Max.

    • hatefulmoz

      And Kazaa and Limewire… those were the days!

      • sxg

        WinMX was my personal fave!

        • hatefulmoz

          Ohmaigah thanks for the reminder. Some very good videos were downloaded through there as well!

    • DaveAtom

      Kinda the same experience. Mine was with Julian, Sebastian, Johan… you know, the golden era.

  • Guest

    This is a solid list. Jack tho…*nngghh* yes.

  • Zues

    I always feel disappointed in myself for liking this hitler youth lookin ass studio.

    • sxg
    • WhimsyCotton

      But some of the models at Bel Ami would have been hunted down by Hitler… Andre Boleyn comes to mind as having a similar look to the gypsies Hitler loved gassing. Besides, any time you feel guilty, remember that George Duroy gives these models options other than street prostitution.

      • andrew

        Few if any of these guys would ever get involved in “street prostitution”.

        • WhimsyCotton

          There’s absolutely no malice behind it. Prostitution is incredibly common in Eastern European countries. Kevin Warhol is an example of someone George Duroy saved from the life of prostitution on the streets.

          • andrew

            If “street prostitution” is so “incredibly common in Eastern Europe” why does one need to be “saved from the life of prostitution on the streets”? I am sure it is seen as an unsavory occupation and to insinuate that these classy guys need George Duroy to save them is mean spirited indeed.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Because you’re at the mercy of your John? You make much less krona than you might if you had someone representing you. And, because it can be incredibly dangerous. There’s tourists that travel there just to sleep with prostitutes because of the prices.
            Maybe saving wasn’t the right way to phrase it. Maybe “gave him opportunities that he might never have gotten prostituting himself on the streets” would be better? Either way, I’d say Kevin loves and thanks George for where he is now.

          • andrew

            My point is that FEW if any of these beautiful, healthy, physically fit and classy guys would have become “street prostitutes” without salvation from George Duroy. Your suggestion that the Bel Ami models are “street prostitute” material is indeed arrogant and mean spirited. Spin your nasty assertion any way you want. It still stinks!!!

          • WhimsyCotton

            I don’t think you know how things work in that part of the world do you? There’s a reason the Czech Republic is the porn capital of the European continent.

          • andrew

            I am familiar with some parts of Europe, including the Czech Republic, having traveled there several times. I am also familiar with arrogant posters like you, who post holier than thou mean spirited comments about people you think you are better than.

          • WhimsyCotton

            Well I’m telling you it was not mean spirited because I did not intend for it to be. If I did, trust me I wouldn’t be afraid of admitting as much. I love that region of Europe so for you to accuse of me being arrogant, holier than thou, or thinking I am better than them is ridiculous. It seems to me that you’re seeking to be offended over a non-existent offense.

      • Zues

        Girl weren’t you the same person defending Gay Adult Films Studios on their racial discriminatory recruitment and hiring?
        You really have no moral high ground.

      • OneOfTheManyChris

        Andre actually is a gypsy and describes himself as “not white” in one of the interview videos. He also talks about the problems its caused him.

        • WhimsyCotton

          Aww. That’s sad to hear. I always found him to be beautiful and a great addition to the main 4 Angels. Jack – Cocky, Adam – Impish, Kevin – Innocent (George Duroy bait), Andre – Shy.

        • JJ

          He said he was not white? He is! Just not 100%!

    • andrew

      Do you realize that most of them are Slavic or Hungarian, ethnic groups that the Nazis believed were inferior to the “Master Race”?

      • Zues

        Ok.

      • JJ

        But many of them have features of the MASTER RACE!!!!

        • andrew

          So what?

  • DPS

    Although likely to receive criticism for saying so, I think you’re right putting Kris as number one. Lucas made this site famous but Kris connects better in an overall way in his scenes. Kris just gives a “more dedicated” performance.

  • John

    I remember an interview where George Duroy, owner, said Pavel was the biggest disappointment of his career. I can’t remember why, but I think it had to do with him leaving Bel Ami. I was much more pleased with the top 20, particularly the top 10, than I was with the last list. Good job. The top 3 were really hard to pick as all were so amazing. Kris deserves this for having given up his career as a cop when he was discovered and to go on to have a long, stellar career and for having created that amazing body!!!! Besides he has around 110 scenes with the company over almost a decade!!!

    • Russell47

      I remember Duroy saying that he had to let Novotny go because he had anger issues, actually had to be stopped topping someone because he was going so hard (angrilly) that the bottom was bleeding.

      No problem with Kris as #1. He tops & bottoms equally well. Surprised Ion Davidov isn’t here in the top 20.
      I was disappointed in Lucas’ return. He should have (IMO) topped Dolph & flipped with Kris

      • sxg

        Let’s not forget this is still East European gay porn so angry hard fucking for them is equivalent to average topping here in the US.

        • WhimsyCotton

          Denis Reed disagrees.

      • John

        Russell 47, that is exactly what Duroy said! Good memory. It comes back to me now. Gawd, Novotny was gorgeous!!!! Lukas R was a bit inhibited in his return but he probably felt nervous being so much older than his co stars. He looked amazing.

        • Dutch Courage

          The return of Lukas R. was a BIG disappointment. I think he felt the pressure that the scenes had to be good.

      • C3xxx

        Here’s the blurb from Max’s bio on belamionline.com

        ““I consider Max Orloff to be my biggest missed opportunity,” says George Duroy. “He is one of the very few models to become as big a star as Lukas Ridgeston. He was the entire package: A beautiful face with an incredible body, a huge cock and extreme cumshots.” Max had a very strong personality and could be difficult. Bel Ami shot several very strong episodes with him, but each one required so much patience and determination that in the end, George simply gave up. “I am sorry to this day for it,” he says, “because I firmly believe Max had the best porn star material of virtually anyone I have met in my career.” Max was a natural-born exhibitionist with no sexual inhibitions. He would happily take out his beautiful cock anywhere and savored the scandal (and curiosity!) it would generate. “His lack of inhibition created problems,” George recalls. “He had no brakes.” For example, Max created trouble on the set of “Greek Holiday” when he threatened to fuck Tim Hamilton until his ass was bloody. It took some time to calm everyone down to complete the scene. A true manipulator, Max could be a solid professional in short bursts. But if filming lingered, he would become restless and his menacing tendencies would surface. Such unpredictability creates highly unstable, time-consuming and expensive delays in filming. Once a soccer player who ruled the field with powerful kicks, Max for a time ruled the porn world in similar fashion. Despite all his trouble, George still considers Max the ultimate materialization of erotic fantasy. “Max epitomizes everything about sex,” he says.

    • von schlomo

      I’m not a Bel Amista nor an expert, but I thought the narrative, should you choose to believe it, was that Kris was fired and therefore it wasn’t his choice to “give up his career”.

      • sxg

        Yea he was more than likely fired. But even if he left out of shame, he still only came back to porn because he had nothing better going for him.

  • andrew

    I think your first five rankings are perfect. About the only top 20 rankings I would change is I would rank Vadim Farrell much higher. Kris Evans: King of the Hill.

  • Can someone please tell me which Matt Phillip scene is the gif from

  • hatefulmoz

    Novoty, Manilow, and Ridgeston and 3, 2, and 1 respectively for me. This list will never change that.

    • von schlomo

      Brandon Manilow, like anyone in the gay porn industry, gets docked for being limited and never bottoming. I’m sorry that his asshole is defective or what other silly story Bel Ami propagated as an excuse. The other 39 all bottomed….odd how that is.

  • WhimsyCotton

    Lucas Ridgeston not at #1?

  • Dutch Courage

    I wonder how many of the models above got married, have a bunch of whiney kids and regret doing gay porn.

    • andrew

      Maybe they will keep and treasure copies of their Bel Ami scenes, so they can remember how magnificent they looked in their youth.

    • Joey

      I think because their models are a definite certain type of liberal Eastern European male and because they’re one of the few enduring major gay porn studios that’s not in the US, I sometimes think about this too. I would imagine most of them lead regular quiet lives as working dads or husbands, never really to mention their gay4pay past, no matter how ~*gorgeous*~ they might’ve looked.

      I mean, the pics are still easily accessible and there’s only so many people who live within those small countries that Bel Ami scout from so I’m a bit surprised we haven’t heard more from some of them throughout the years. Then again, take the money and run, right?

    • OneOfTheManyChris

      Johan Paulik has kids, and has talked about how doing the porn improved the quality of his life. Average income in the Czech Republic is about $10,000 a year. A lot of guys in the US would have been better off aiming to be promoted to assistant manager of the sandwich artists. It’s a much more strategic decision for these guys.

      • JJ

        Where and when did Johan Paulik say that doing porn improved his life???!!

    • OneOfTheManyChris

      Johan Paulik has kids, and has talked about how doing the porn improved the quality of his life. Average income in the Czech Republic is about $10,000 a year. A lot of guys in the US would have been better off aiming to be promoted to assistant manager of the sandwich artists. It’s a much more strategic decision for these guys.

    • Chris

      A bunch have kids: Johan Paulik, Lukas Ridgeston, Luke Hamill, JD Chagall, to name a few. Not sure all of them are married, though. I’d be surprised if any of them would say they regret their porn careers, since they’re still at it.

      • Erik

        Johan Paulik, Lukas Ridgeston and Luke Hamill have been working full time for BelAmi for 15-20 years (probably 10 years for Luke) and still do. So it would be very surprising if they regretted it… 😉 But, to be serious – this is a very interesting and important issue. As a long time BelAmi-fan I of course hope that very few regrets their time in porn. But I´m worried that many of them do. It´s extremely important that no “fan” reveals their real names.

        About kids – I know that Luke just got a (unplanned) kid and that Jean-Daniel has just recently got a kid. Not sure if Lukas and Johan have kids. They are both 40 or close to 40 years old.

  • Jason

    Not surprised. Annoyed but not surprised.

    There are more deserving if the top 3 due to their longevity and workload. Sebastian, Luke, Brandon (though he never bottomed) and Josh, for instance. Lukas did not have a very long history and yes Kris has great cumshots, but I’m sorry there are/were better looking and more enthusiastic performers. But hey we all knew Kris would be #1. Sigh.

    • WhimsyCotton

      Lukas did not have a very long history? 20 years isn’t long enough?

  • Texndoc

    My favorite will always be Brandon Manilow, especially when he got older and heavier, two no-nos at that studio I guess. I always hoped he’d show up elsewhere with others his age instead of the boys. He did finish with that Kristen Bjorn-BelAmi co-production and I had hopes he’d just change studios.

  • keldommage

    Solid-ish. Clearly Lukas not being #1 is controversial.

    But the absence of icons like YVES CARRADINE, ETHAN CLAKE AND CLAUDE COCTEAU from the top 20 – let alone top 40 – shocked me!

    • Erik

      Shocked me is a little strong word 😉 But I agree that those three should have been on the list.

  • Hey there

    How dare you put Lukas in #2!

  • C3xxx

    When i first saw Hoyt Kogan (rolls eyes over name) I was hoping for some fine video. The ensuing scenes he did with the BA studs and studlets were disappointingly mediocre at best.

    • Chris

      I agree about his performance, But that face is just sooooo gorgeous.

      • C3xxx

        It is indeed. Sometimes I feel the guys would want to be/do more but are reigned in by Duroy.

      • Erik

        I agree about his gorgeous face. And he also has a very nice body. I don´t agree about that he should be a lousy performer. In some scenes he is a very good top as well as a very good bottom. I have also seen some more average work but none that are bad.

  • All those awesome uncut dicks!

  • Mike Julius

    Lukas Ridgeston needs to get in front of the camera way fucking more at that site. WAY fucking more.

  • Fyrestone

    Well at least Mick Lovell didn’t get to #1. I’m happy.

  • Erik

    Very happy that Mick is #3, but I would have been even happier if he had been #1. Great face and body, powerbottom, amazing at deepthroating and a good kisser. Also playful and witty in docus, photo shoots (but not all of them) and on his Twitter.

    On this list I´m very fond of Hoyt Kogan, Max Orloff, Chance, Julian Armanis, Tim Hamilton, Dolph and Lukas.

  • JJ

    Dick size is a factor? Why are gays such size queens?! For me, it’s the overall package.

    Gosh! Some of those BA boys are breathtakingly gorgeous(Mick, Dolph, Hoyt, Brandon, Vadim)

  • DaveAtom

    Julian Armanis should be higher in this list. He’s gonna be my #1 forever =)

  • Chris

    That Luke is on the list at all is a travesty — maybe because of his tenure and work behind the camera? — not because of his performances. Where’s Todd Rosset? For nearly 9 years, he was BelAmi’s premier go-to bottom.

  • JJ

    That Dolph really looks like Dolph Lundgren !!!!!

  • Marek Keram

    Does anyone know names of these models:

  • Marek Keram

    Does anyone know names of these models?

  • Lukasdart

    Lukas Ridgeston will always be THE best. Still one of the most handsome guys alive.

  • Prince Glenn

    Putting anyone asides from Lukas Ridgeston at no.1 is just retarded … Kris Evans wouldn’t make my Top 10; otherwise, pretty good List
