FOR Badboys performer Josh Vereb, being a male stripper for a living was never in his sights.

But the 24-year-old is doing exactly that, and he's not planning on leaving the entertainment industry any time soon.

A former mine worker at Moranbah, he decided to have a career change after a year due to the lonely nature of the work.

"I lost a lot of friends and I missed out on family events so I moved back to the Gold Coast (home town)," he said.

"I always fantasised about doing topless shows, so when the opportunity arose I couldn't say no.

"I stuck with it and I am now one of the main acts. I had no intention of ever becoming a stripper."

He's been in the show for over a year and has been dancing for the past six months, although he says he's "not the best dancer".

Josh and nine other chiselled men make up the sexy Badboys team who make women's hearts race all over the world.

The shows are ideal for a hen's night or even a casual night out with the girls, with a secret agent 007 character and police uniforms on display.

Sizzling dance routines, acrobatics and amazing costumes are all part of the fun.

Travelling is also a major part of the job, with ladies worldwide not missing out on a minute of the Badboys action.

"I have travelled around quite a bit. I've been to Singapore twice and America, Canada and Hong Kong," Josh said

"I like the reaction that we get from the crowd. Generally everyone is pretty happy when we take the clothes off," he laughed.

Josh currently focuses all his energy on Badboys and a body building competition at the end of the year.

He hasn't visited Gladstone before but is anticipating a good reaction.

"I am expecting a good turn out," he said.

Catch the Badboys Australia Most Wanted show at Tannum Sands Hotel on August 9.
