After a month-long intense battle, the 2011 Model Behavior Showdown has officially come to a close. Every week in 2011, picking just one male model to feature was quite a dilemma. Based on the feedback I received from a few of you, voting for the hottest one of the bunch proved equally as difficult. Now, you can imagine how hard it is for me on a weekly basis.
Despite the plethora of Brazilian male models featured throughout the year, none of them landed in the Top 3. Individually, the Brazilian posts are very popular and receive plenty of hits on a weekly basis. I guess, when faced to battle other models, their fans just didn’t come out in droves like the following three’s did. The finals certainly provided a few surprises. An early favorite who won his preliminary round by a wide margin landed in dead last. Without further ado, let’s get to the results and see how everyone fared.
For the past year, I’ve highlighted a different male model every week to share with you. Whether they graced the covers of fashion magazines, strutted their stuff on the runway or showed off their hot bodies for underwear shoots, I tried to pick models from every facet of the modeling industry. For the past few weeks, I’ve pitted these weekly features from my Model Behavior series for you to vote on.
After three rounds of intense battle, we finally have our finalists for the 2011 Model Behavior Showdown. The top two finishers of each round automatically earned their spot in this year’s Top 10. To fill the four remaining Wild Card slots, I scoured through all the results and picked the four highest vote-getters from all three rounds. Now it’s all up to you to determine the hottest model for 2011. Vote often to make sure your favorite is crowned Homorazzi’s 2011 Model Behavior Winner.
We’re in our third and final preliminary round for our Model Behavior 2011 Showdown. Who’ll make it to Top 10 of 2011? It all depends on your votes. Speaking of votes, are you curious to know what the results of Round 2 were?
Winning the second round of the showdown was Craig Malozzi with 40% of the votes. Coming in second was Kamil Nicalek garnering 23% of your votes. The two automatically join Bernardo Velasco and Andrew Stetson who took first and second place during Round 1.
The four of them automatically earn their spots in our Final Showdown which will feature the top two vote-getters of each round. The remaining four wild card spots will be determined by the next four highest receiver of votes from all three rounds. Based on last week’s results, third and fourth place finishers River Viiperi and Parker Hurley stand a good chance of making the finals.
Without further ado, take a trip down memory lane and see which fashion and fitness models I featured during the last part of 2011. Remember, if you want your favorites in the FINALS, vote for them and vote often. Some of these hotties have fervent followings and vote hardcore for their men.
Round 1 of our 2011 Model Behavior Showdown is officially in the history books. As promised, the top two vote-getters automatically earn their spot in the finals. Congratulations go out to Andrew Stetson and Bernardo Velasco who received 31% and 28% of the votes cast. Coming in close behind were Jamie Dorman and Jed Hill who garnered 27% and 26% respectively.
Depending on how Rounds 2 and 3 go, Dorman or Hill might earn one of the four wild card spots up for grabs. It all depends how many votes the runner-ups in the upcoming rounds get. Side note. How bummed were you that “Once Upon A Time” killed off Dorman’s sheriff character on the show? I was. Damn you ABC. I’m going to miss my Jamie sporting that sexy facial hair on a weekly basis.
If you enjoyed last week’s roundup of my Model Behavior selections from last year, you’re going to love this second crop featured from March til July. Show some love to the following guys and make sure you cast votes for your favorites from Round 2. They’re not going to make the finals on their own.
Last year, my first annual Man Crush Showdown proved so popular, I thought I’d do the same for my Model Behavior feature this year. Model Behavior was born to give our readers more opportunities to ogle at hot shirtless men. For this feature, I specifically just focus on male models. From high fashion, to swimwear to fitness models, I try to include all facets of the modeling industry. This new feature was met with resounding success. In some instances, the spin-off has surpassed my popular Man Crush series. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise since these guys are paid to strip down and show off their toned physiques and photogenic mugs.
Since I started Model Behavior late in 2010, it felt silly last year to have a battle with only the handful that I featured by year’s end. Not wanting them to feel left out, I decided to include them in our first annual Model Behavior showdown. I divided the eligible models into three rounds. This week will feature hotties from October 2010 to the end of February 2011.
The two models who garner the most votes will automatically earn a spot in the finals. Then, when all three rounds are completed, I’ll look through all three rounds and pick the next four highest vote-getters to round out the Top 10 who’ll battle it out for Homorazzi.com model supremacy for 2011. Without further ado, let’s look at the candidates vying for the top two spots in Round 1.
