DFW.com's 2012 Hot Issue: it's sizzle time!

Posted 9:45am on Wednesday, Aug. 01, 2012

Last summer was a DFW inferno. With 71 days of 100-degree heat -- many of them topping 105 -- Mother Nature melted records and took a blowtorch to our sanity.

By comparison, summer 2012 has been downright comfortable. We didn't hit triple digits until June 24, and we haven't had to endure day after day of 105-degree heat until, well, now.

Which makes the arrival of our annual Hot Issue right on time.

We'll help you escape the August sizzle by taking you poolside with some of DFW's coolest personalities, all of whom have smokin' hot bods.

You'll take a dip with Miss Dallas and sip a cocktail with a sexy morning-show host. You'll meet football stars, a Football Wife and a Friday Night Lights regular. You'll even expand your mind with an accountant, a lawyer and an orthobiologics specialist (don't worry, we'll explain). And we've even got two returning favorites from last year's Hot Issue.

So, as our most famous model might say: "Get your popcorn ready." It's time to dive into DFW.com's 2012 Hot Issue.

Terrell Owens


Click here to see all the pics from T.O's photo shoot.

Better known as T.O., the six-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Fame receiver played in the NFL from 1996 to 2010, including three seasons (2006-08) with the Dallas Cowboys. He set records and made headlines, both for his play and his personality. He missed the 2011 season to recover from a knee injury before joining the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League as player and co-owner. But he was released by the team May 29, and now the 38-year-old is hoping to get another shot with an NFL team.

As he waits, Owens is laying the foundation for what he hopes will be a career in Hollywood. He has already appeared in movies (Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday) and starred in two reality-TV series ( The T.O. Show on VH1 and The T.Ocho Show on Versus, with fellow receiver Chad Ochocinco). Next up, Owens will guest-star in the upcoming season of Necessary Roughness on the USA Network. And if he gets his wish, he'll be back on an NFL roster before the 2012 season begins.

Born: Alexander City, Ala.

Current city: Splits time between Los Angeles and Dallas

Birthday: Dec. 7

Day job: NFL free agent wide receiver, actor. I just finished a film last summer called Dysfunctional Friends.

Dream job: Doing a blockbuster film with the likes of Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx or Will Smith. They find a way to draw you in and captivate you. I have taken a few baby steps in acting, but I definitely want to continue my NFL career for a couple more years, and we will see what happens after that.

My favorite place in DFW to hang out: Village Burger Bar in West Village. Those turkey burgers are to die for. When I played here, we had some charity stuff going on with the Village Burger Bar donating $100 for every touchdown I scored.

Does a girl who does NOT look like a supermodel have a realistic chance to go out with you? Of course. I think that's the stereotype for guys like myself or anyone that is famous for that matter, that we are always looking for the model type or someone else that is famous. It really depends on the person. You do not have to have a celebrity status to gain my attention. I'm flexible. I don't discriminate.

Favorite movie? The Notebook with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. It seems kind of odd, but that is my favorite movie. I also really enjoyed The Book of Eli starring Denzel Washington.

Ideal place for a summer vacation: I liked Cabo (that was kind of like my place to get away right before the season). The new place that's on my list is Bora Bora.

Favorite junk food: Snickers, Twix and popcorn

Hobbies: Bowling, playing cards, dominos, going to the movies, board games -- anything involving good friends.

Best summer cocktail: Not a big drinker, but I did have a drink at my buddy's club in New York City, called Provocateur, ... called the Teddy Bear. It's like a mojito type of drink and it is delicious.

Where might we see you on a hot summer afternoon in DFW? Working out.

Talk about your Catch a Dream Foundation. Over the years, I established the foundation to raise money for disadvantaged families in the community wherever I was playing, including the three years I was here in Dallas. We helped families around Christmastime that could not afford to get gifts for kids. It was always good to see the smiles on not only the kids' but the moms' and dads' faces considering that they never really knew how their holidays were going to turn out.
