Before I get to the results from Round 2 of the 2012 Man Crush Showdown, I wanted to address a technical glitch. The poll was supposed to close at 11:59 pm on December 26th, but it never did. To keep the results in line with the designated voting period, I went through the logs and voided all votes cast past 12:00 am December 27th. In the end, it really didn’t change the Top 4 with exception to a switcheroo between first and second place, and also third and fourth. Without further ado, let’s get to the final amended results.
Coming in first place is Jayson Blair with 861 total votes (1379 original minus 518 votes voided). In the runner-up slot was Ryan Guzman with 830 eligible votes (1507-677). Both Blair and Guzman automatically earn a slot in the finals. In third place and stands a good chance of advancing via one of the four wildcard slots is Taylor Kinney. After subtracting his invalid votes (3), he ended up with 765 votes. Just in case you were wondering what each Man Crush in Round 2 got subtracted from their totals, click here. Numbers are above the poll.
With only one round left before the finals next week, the Top 10 is quickly coming together. Check out this crop of my previous weekly Man Crushes and see who’ll join Brandon Quinn, Mario Casas, Jayson Blair and Ryan Guzman.

Why I Chose Him: He guest starred as one sexy Amish in 2 Broke Girls. I’d like to “rum” his “springa”. Side note: Rumspringa is kinda like spring break for the young Amish ;)
