Xtra Hot: Basil

He knows how to work the stage

“I fell in love with the energy of Toronto, the streets, the buildings . . . there is art, music and diverse culture. I felt like I belonged here,” Basil says, describing how he was charmed by the big city after arriving from small-town Orillia. Passionate and romantic, he is turned on by confidence, and his ideal date includes “dinner, a movie, a walk and ice cream.” A member of Toronto’s HIM entertainment troupe, he describes working with athletes and performers with excitement. “A HIM man is confident, has sex appeal and knows how to work the stage. I work with a group of great guys who are down to earth, who like to have fun, and they put on a great show.”
