We’re a week into the penultimate month of 2012 and you know what that means — Movember. Although we’re proud of our male friends for growing out facial hair to raise awareness of man cancer, it is the ugliest month of the year bar none. Even when Bachelor Pad 3 alum Chris Bukowski participates.

The former Bachelorette contestant tweeted a pic of himself on the beach, bearded and scowling, with the caption, “Waiting for my room... looking like a homeless guy on the beach and taking self shots like an A-hole. #ChristmasCard”

Thankfully (yep, Thanksgiving is this month too), we know that underneath all that scruff and smarm, lies a beautiful face. It’s official, guys, we’re counting down the days ‘til December on a giant advent calendar.
