Happy Monday everyone. Round 2 of my “2010 Man Crush Showdown” is officially in the history books. Despite a last minute surge from his fans, Matt Lanter fell a bit short from winning this semifinal round. With 36% of the votes cast, Colton Haynes won the second round and secures himself a spot in the finals next week. All is not lost for Matt Lanter fans, he’s still eligible for a wild card spot depending on how this week’s vote totals add up. Haynes joins Scott Herman, who won Round 1, in the finals
Not to be biased, but I love the candidates for the Round 3 voting. I think they’re cumulatively the hottest of my weekly crushes from 2010. You have a couple of fitness model beefcakes, two openly gay studly actors, a Telenovela hunk and super sexy Aussie rules jock who loves to show off his perfectly sculpted body. Check out the boys in contention below and see why they won my heart during the months of September til December. Don’t forget to cast your votes daily and often.
Voting ends Sunday Dec 26 when The FINAL ROUND begins.
I’m going to go a little more cerebral for this week’s man crush. ABC News Chris Cuomo has become part of my weekend ritual. My latest new obsession is to watch Friday night’s taped 20/20 on Saturday morning in bed. What better way to wake up then to catch up on current events and drool over some hot man candy at the same time. I’m such a multi-tasker. Jealous???
The 40-year-old Cuomo joined ABC News in 1999 and has held several positions within the network. Last year, the journalist was promoted to anchor the prestigious 20/20 desk. During his illustrious career, he’s won awards for his hour-long documentaries on pressing social issues, teen drug use, gang violence and other hot topics.
Chris Cuomo is a licensed attorney. He received his undergraduate degree from Yale and his Juris Doctor from Fordham University. Cuomo has some pretty high-profile familial connections. His father is the former New York Governor, Mario Cuomo, younger brother of New York State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, and designer Kenneth Cole’s brother-in-law.
