Model and actor Tyson Beckford became the show’s first long-term celebrity guest star in residency.

“It feels great to be back, it’s like I never left,” says Beckford. “Vegas is my home away from home and I love the comradery with the guys here at Chippendales. It’s so much fun to come to work – we have the best audiences and the energy in this theater is incredible — I’m just living in this great moment and not even thinking about when it’s going to end.”

Beckford first hosted the show in 2015, setting box office records for Chippendales at the time. This inaugural weekend included bachelorettes, birthday girls and divorcees as well as dozens of Beckford’s fans who either saw him in 2015 and came back for even more of his charismatic energy and talent. A highlight for audiences (and Tyson) was a moment in the show where he had his tank top ripped off by identical twin bachelorettes who are about to have a double wedding.
