Ahead of his new gig as co-host of Live (which is soon to be titled Live with Kelly and Mark), Mark Consuelos, 52, decided to tease his followers with a saucy new photo on Instagram.

The Riverdale actor shared a snap over the weekend that sees him walking down a dock in nothing but his swim trunks. However, with the sun shining directly behind him, it is mostly his silhouette that is visible in the pic. In his caption, Consuelos wrote: “If you like this sort of thing…”

It is clear one person certainly likes it—his wife, Kelly Ripa, 52. The Let's Talk Off Camera podcast host commented a series of seven fire emojis in the comments.

However, she wasn't the only one. Watch What Happens Live! host and friend of the couple, Andy Cohen, wrote: “Gorgeous.” Meanwhile, another pal, Rob Liefeld, commented, “Outstanding!!”

Typically, it's Ripa who posts the thirst traps of Consuelos on social media. For instance, when she was promoting her game show Generation Gap back in August 2022, Ripa shared a beachside photo of Consuelos and wrote, “A thirsty reminder to watch an all new #GenerationGap tonight at 9/8c on ABC (objects may be thirstier than they appear).”

We hope Consuelos is enjoying this last-minute vacation because, in a week, he will be taking Ryan Seacrest's place on Live.

When the news was first announced back in February, Ripa made a post honoring Seacrest, and she also made a cheeky comment about her hubby, writing, “And @instasuelos welcome home, or to the contractual obligation phase of our relationship.”

We can't wait to see you join Live, Mark.
