Since joining the acclaimed Las Vegas production of Chippendales last summer, Ziering’s career has skyrocketed with hits such as the SyFy “People’s Choice” nominated cult-film, “Sharknado” and, the forthcoming “Sharknado 2” set for release in July 2014. The Las Vegas Sun said of Ziering’s Chippendales performance: “Ian proved to be a sizzling and sexy guest host and performer…easily fitting in with the cast of hunks,” and, Perez Hilton exclaimed: “OMG, this is seriously too HAWT to handle!”
“Ian has been a stellar addition to our Chippendales family over the last year,” says Kevin Denberg, Managing Partner, Chippendales. “He completely embraced the show and is the perfect blend of talent, charm and sex appeal, which has made him a huge hit with not only our fans but, the critics as well. We are thrilled to have him back with us this summer, following the wake of a tremendous year for him as the star of ‘Sharknado’ and the forthcoming ‘Sharknado 2’.”
“The last year has been amazing for me and it started with signing on with Chippendales last summer as their guest host,” says Ziering. “Performing with these talented guys in front of packed houses at the Rio was amazing and, it was during my last week with the show that ‘Sharknado’ became this phenomenon. So, the fact that I am returning to the show and ‘Sharknado 2’ is set for release in July means it’s going to be another great summer – I can’t wait!”
