It’s not Antonio Sabato Jr.‘s first time at the washboard rodeo, and we can only hope it won’t be his last!

The actor, model and Dancing with the Stars alum – who has appeared in several of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive and Most Beautiful People issues – is about to put on the Chippendales’ signature cuffs and collar as the newest celebrity guest host for the Las Vegas revue.
