On Wednesday (July 22nd), former hockey player Brooks Laich, 36, took to Instagram to post a risqué picture of him stood in water, flipping some pancakes with nothing but an apron on. The ‘thirst trap’ photo was clearly a ploy to show off his ripped body and it sent his swooning fans to be falling at his feet… along with his ex-wife!

Brooks’s caption read:

“Get your ‘cakes hot off the griddle! Thirst trap round 2!” followed by, “the first one was so damn fun that I had to do [a] sequel!”.

‘Round 2’ refers to the previously shared ‘thirst trap’ photos which he posted two months prior. The string of photos showed Laich to be stood in a lake holding onto some tools with his six-pack on full display.

The shirtless poses are comparable to that of Channing Tatum in Magic Mike, and lets just say they’ve been a big hit online!

Are Brooks and Jules still on the rocks?

In May 2020, after three years of marriage, it was announced that Brooks and 32-year-old dancer Julianne Hough were divorcing – yet it seems she may be wanting to reconcile.

Julie weighed in on the pic commenting: “That booty though🤣.”

The two are quarantined in separate states although their flirtatious banter remains. On the first round of ‘thirst trap’ photos a string of comments showed the couple to be a little more than just amicable. 

“This is awesome haha🤣🔥  also the fact that you just figured out what a thirst trap is…🤣 ,” she commented on the picture. Laich replied, “@juleshough you know how I do (5 years late)😂😂 .”

The pair obviously have a lot of history and it was revealed last month that both Brooks and Julianne are hesitant to divorce, but ‘her actions’ were what led to the breakdown of their marriage. Brooks really has been showing Jules what she’s missing!

We’re just waiting for ‘thirst trap’ round 3 – keep em’ coming Brooks!
