Austin Armacost is the new spokesmodel for a steamy bathhouse in London.
Austin Armacost found fame in 2010 after joining the cast of the Logo reality television series The A-List: New York, which followed the lives of six queer men in New York City. Then, in 2015, Armacost competed on Celebrity Big Brother season sixteen where he finished runner-up. He re-entered the CBB house in 2017 during the nineteenth season as an “All-Star,” but he didn’t last long and was the second person to be eliminated.
With his reality TV career on pause, Armacost is busy starring in a steamy campaign for Pleasuredrome, a spa designed for gay and bisexual men in London. The bathhouse recently released a promo featuring the 30-year-old former CBB star on its YouTube channel.
In the 80-second clip, Armacost strolls the streets of London and stumbles upon Pleasuredrome. Once inside the bathhouse, he strips down in the locker room and proceeds to take viewers through the spa’s many amenities.

Austin continues his tour of the favorite spa with relaxation time in the sauna followed by a dip in the pool before heading to the showers and infamous steam room.
Armacost’s performance in the suggestive Pleasuredrome campaign isn’t overly shocking; he has a history of showing off. In a recent interview with Gay Star News, Armacost said, “In the gay [male] community especially, sex is an everyday part of our interactions, conversations, and relationships … Men have an animistic desire to do it. Therefore the process of selecting or being selected for sex is constant. We are always being judged on our physical shape, as many gay men’s interactions only consist of physical activity.”
He went on to address his reputation for thirst trapping his followers. “I love posting pics of my ass. I work very hard on making it big and round, and yes, I enjoy showing it off. I also like to shock people,” Armacost admitted.
Consider us curious, but not shocked. Watch the promo below.
