2012 Man Crush Showdown: Round 1

Like my Model Behavior series, it’s also time to wrap up my other weekly feature, Man Crush. For those who are new readers, this is when I pit my weekly crushes against each other to see who reigns supreme. In 2010, Scott Herman won the title and in 2011 it was Jonathan D. Lovitz who won your hearts. Who will it be this year? Only your votes will determine that.

Once again, the 2012 Man Crush Showdown will be divided into three rounds. Read below to see how the final round will be determined and ultimately the winner crowned. If you’re craving more pictures of each stud, click on their name to check out their original feature with plenty of pics. Without further, let the Man Crush games begin.
