Raw Foodist Crushes

So I was just curious if any of you have crushes on recognizable figures in raw (i.e. David Wolfe, Tim VanOrden, etc)...

I personally have thee biggest crush on Harley (durianrider). For those of you who don’t know who he is, he’s a follower of Doug Graham and an advocate of 80/10/10. He’s been banned from a bunch of raw food forums for his “tell it like it is” attitude, but I can’t help but find him adorable.

Here’s one of his videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo2Lq-GdWuk

    I respectfully disagree about durianrider – he is not a person I admire. His attitude has made giveittomeraw a very difficult forum to visit. To me, it seems that his ego dominates most of his speech.

    I admire someone who is humble, respectful, kind, and very accepting of all types of people and diets. Thus…

    Huge crush on Sergei Boutenko!!! Who wouldn’t?



    His recipe book Fresh is so good – gotta love a man who can uncook! He continually inspires me to eat raw, with his love of the outdoors, hiking, workouts, and “devouring romaine lettuce with great joy!”

    I think David Wolfe is sort of attractive but only because of the vibe he transmits. If you ever meet him in person, you will understand what I mean. I don’t really find his features personally attractive but his energy definatley is. :)

    I honestly have any other ones I think are all that attractive – hmm, maybe I am just picky. Oh, wait – Matt Monarch is cute but mostly because I love his hair. A guy who has nice hair like that has to be healthy! (I wish MY hair was like that! ha ha!) ;)

  • lzhptlzhpt Raw Newbie

    When i first went raw, I think I harbored a secret desire to rip off DW’s hemp poncho. KAIT-not digging the too thin durianrider, but I do like the name and I like his attitude. Some of these dudes just look like they need a good bath…that could be fun!

  • I’m contemplating leaving my husband for Sergei Boutenko.

    Okay, not really, but that is one dreamy man.

  • Um, I have a crush on Shazzie.

    Here’s her Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/valerie1969

    She’s smokin’ hot.

  • What a fun topic. I have one question; is Sergei the son or father? I forget.

  • WinonaWinona Raw Newbie

    Sergei is the son.

  • Wow, you were right KAIT. He is pretty hot!!

    I alo think that RawVolution guy is cute. I forget his name….Matt something?

  • MOTHMOTH Raw Newbie

    I like Durianrider. I respect that dude and like the fact that he speaks his truth so fervently. He may have an ego on him, but as far as I know, so do I. :-D

    Shazzie gets second place.

    No, wait! There was nudity and durian in her vid – make that FIRST PLACE. :::thumbs up:::

  • MOTHMOTH Raw Newbie

    Yep, Matt Monarch is a freaking cutie.

  • RawKidChefRawKidChef Raw Newbie

    I’m a girl and personally I find David Wolfe interesting, but I wouldn’t say I have a crush on him. Matt Amsden, you mean?

  • When I first started learning about and transitioning to raw, I read all 7(?) years of Shazzie’s blog on line and had a huge girl crush on her. However, the durian porn video turned me off in a big way – I thought it was just so stupid. I kind of have a girl crush on Sarma – she always looks so sunny – kind of like a yellow flower. (Funny how I’m a straight woman yet my raw crushes are on girls!) Judging from this thread, I need to go check out Victoria’s son!

  • Me too, Dagny :) (about crushing on women…) But for me it’s probably more about wanting to improve on a quality of myself than it’s about a crush.

    So, my vote goes to Jinjee. She just seems so beautiful and kind and lovely inside and out. And such a wonderful, caring mother.

    Also (blushing) Ani Phyo.

  • SueSue Raw Newbie

    The whole Boutenko family is adorable. I have a few of their books. Matt Amsden is also adorable, in a hippy kind of way. I read David Wolfe’s “Sunfood Diet Success” book cover to cover and thought it was awesome, but on a sour note, I don’t like the fact that his book “Nature’s First Law” was almost entirely plagiarized from a book written about 40 years ago by an Armenian named Arshavir Ter Hovannessian called “Raw Food Eating. I did research into that and indeed Wolfe’s book copies almost verbatim this previously published book. I find it unscrupulous of Mr. Wolfe, et al, to take advantage of this mans work because there was no copyright for Mr. Hovannessian’s book. Just my humble opinion. Oh, I also think the “raw model” is super hot, if I was only 20 years younger…..

  • oh my GOODNESS i have a HUUUUUGE crush on rawmodel. and i checked out sergei boutenko- he IS a cutie! mm-mm-mm attractive men inside and out. shazzie and ani phyo are also super hot!

  • My sweet husband has dubbed Sarma Mengalais as the “raw babe” and refuses to call her by anything else. I have to say I agree she is totally hot. :0)

  • TomsMomTomsMom Raw Newbie

    Not really. I admire Storm and Jinjee of the Garden Diet the most. I think they and their children are gorgeous.

    David Wolfe makes me want to puke. I have a problem with someone who robs the dead and feels no remorse whatsoever. His being cute and white means nothing to me, although it means a lot in my country, of course.

    LATER ADDITION: I’ve visited other raw forums where David Wolfe is worshiped and admired for his theft and lack of morals and ethics, and I do NOT mean anyone here at all. I’ve never seen any person who liked DW make excuses for him or act like a lap dog. Just wanted to make that clear!

  • lzhptlzhpt Raw Newbie

    Oh…END of DW crush. He’s dead food to me now.I’d like to run w/ Tim van Orden, but that’s about it. Sergei is way too young for me.

  • Branwyn32Branwyn32 Raw Newbie

    I was in Borders yesterday and actually picked up Rawolution…that Matt Amsden dude is good looking, though way too scrawny for my taste. I’d be more interested if he gained a few pounds and took the facial hair down a few notches. He just kinda looks like he could use a bath and a shave (and a meal or 2 or 5) in a few of the photos of him. I’m just not that much of a hippie…I’m sort like…hippie meets a bit of goth aesthetic meets a bit of punk sensibility meets an effing shower… :p

    David Wolfe? No way! I can’t do it, his hair freakin’ squidges me out man!

    Sergei Boutenko on the other hand is ADORABLE. Still a bit on the little side for my taste, but I get that geeky boyish mischievous vibe from that will get me EVERY time. I would corrupt him. ;)

  • I think Matthew Kenney is a total babe! He and Sarma are completely perfect together though! :-)

  • queenfluffqueenfluff Raw Newbie

    RawKidChef – There are two raw Matt’s (well, there are probably more than that but…) Matt Monarch is the guy who is engaged to Angela Stokes and the Matt Amsden is the one who wrote Rawvolution. They are both cute but Matt Monarch has the great hair.If I ever met him, I would be so tempted to touch it.

    TomMoms – What do you mean by DW and robbing the dead? I am just wondering what he has done that I don’t know about. I agree that some of his personality leaves much to be desired – esp. since rumor has it that is he quite the womanizer which is unattractive to me – which is unfortunate because his energy makes him kind of appealing to me.

    I agree that rawmodel guy is quite good looking! :)

    I also think this Marcus Rothkranz guy is pretty sexy. I like that blonde surfer look. Apparently he is 45 but I think he looks like a 20 something surfer dude. I haven’t seen him in person though so I don’t know if he looks that young in person or not.


    I guess I like the most UNusual looking guys. :) Sergei is way too clean cut looking for me. He looks too young to me – likes he needs to go around he block a few times or something. I bet he would look good with long hair.

    I guess for the girls – Shazzie and Angela Stokes are the prettiest “raw girls”. :). Of course, I can’t remember everyone right now.

  • TomsMomTomsMom Raw Newbie

    queenfluff, I’m puked out by the slobbering remarks on other raw forums, where DW is worshiped and even admired for his theft, not here. I never see people act like that here, and I should have made that much more clear. I didn’t mean to hurt feelings. I’m sorry, hon!

    I’m going to add to my above remark.

  • OoooH this is SO fun! OKay, I don’t know how recognizable they are to you guys but, I have three:

    Heather Salmon—not only is she thin and tall, she is absolutely Gorgeous a hundred times over.

    Jahsah—This guy plays great music and is very attractive in my eyes….http://www.jahsah.com/ Yes, I think this guy is adorable! It was fun to watch him preform and dance at the RSF in Sedona. (he’s not so much a raw food “promoter” as he is a musical healer)

    Okay and lastly, as much as I prefer the hippie-style guys, I really love the vibes Philip McCluskey sends, plus the darker complexion with dark hair really does it for me.

  • Absolutely 100% Mike Adams (the Health Ranger). I saw him at the Raw Food Fetival this year and he is SUPER hot (way more than in his videos) and he also has that attractive super energy about him.



  • omshantiomshanti Raw Newbie

    ok so i dont know shit about durianrider, he has a definity bad boy vibe, love his intense slightly crazy eyes and accent…..raw model well, hes adonis…sergie cute little kid…sorry ladies! never had a girl crush oh wait i use to think kate winslet was the bomb!

    OMG think im gonna vomit! that durian porn flick was so gross! i mean the stuff smells like 10 kinds of moldy ass and taste like garlicy rotting corpse….that anyone can put that stuff in their mouth and be happy about it is beyond me! the inuendo was pretty much second rate debbie does durian too….rolls eyes…. hope she was kidding.

  • queenfluffqueenfluff Raw Newbie

    TomsMom – Oh, no offense taken at all or feelings hurt! :) I was just wondering what you meant by ‘robbing the dead’ and “his theft” and what DW does that falls into that category. I am curious to know what nasties he as done. I am sure there are things I don’t know about him. Are you talking about the Natures First Law Book at he pretty much stole word for word?

    The only thing I really like about him is more of the energy he gives out – he tends to make raw food fun and isn’t as serious as some of the others – and I like him for that. But yes, I agree, he has got some personality flaws!

    omshanti – Yeah, I kind of agree with you about the durian porn thing. Mostly because I hate porn itself and not really durians. (Surprise I have actually eaten some durian that didn’t smell like garlic or rotting corpses – so I guess there are some good varieties out there). I am really not a fan of the “super sexed up” raw food theme that some people have going on. Like the “sexy raw bitches” thing. Maybe it is just not me but it grosses me out too. I am probably too much of a a feminist. :)

  • akinagroakinagro Raw Newbie

    Matthew Kenney and Anthony (rawmodel) is the hottest raw guys I know of. ;o)

  • I think I’d also like to add Richard Blackman. He’s one sexy fruitarian.

  • MOTHMOTH Raw Newbie

    Oh yeah, for sure. He is an inspiration!

  • bittbitt Raw Newbie

    I think Richard Blackman is cute but my all time crush on a raw foodie is

    PHIL MCCLUSKY! he’s always got girls all over him, it makes me think if i met him he would not mind a big hug and kiss. blush
