The Sports Stud 2012 Showdown is well under way now, with the first round completed. The winner of round one was yummy soccer player, Lance Parker, who happened to be my first Sports Stud of the year in 2012. I had a feeling when I wrote that one that he was going to be a contender in the end. In second place was sexy volleyball player, J.P. Calderon whom you know best from Survivor.

With Round 1 completed, it’s time to move on to the second batch of boys. There are a lot of hot ones in this group as well so it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top. The details of how the winner will be determined in the end are once again listed below.

Ashton Eaton

Why I Chose Him: He was featured in Vogue’s Olympic spread and looked hot, hot, hot. He was also a world record holder in the hepathlon (6645) – I’m not sure if he still is or not, but that’s pretty damn impressive.
