We’re finally down to our last showdown, with the winners for our Model Behavior and Man Crush Showdowns were announced earlier this week. Last year, the winner for the Sports Stud was Australia rugby player, Daniel Conn.

This year’s winner is both similar and different to last year’s and it isn’t who I thought was going to win. That being said, I’m very happy with the outcome and think he’s totally worthy of the title. Although there are only three athletes that made it to the end, there were countless hotties featured on the site in 2012 and many more to come in 2013.

We’ve featured many athletes over the past few years, but if there’s someone that we haven’t featured before that you think would be great, feel free to let us know! Also, thank you to all of the athletes for being such good “sports” with these features. Without further delay, find out who the winner is and who came second and third below.

Sports Stud 2012 Showdown Finals

Well, we’re now into the final stretch of the Sports Stud 2012 Showdown and we have a group of ten finalists based on your votes for you to choose from. If you haven’t voted in our Man Crush and Model Behavior finals (although I think most of you have – LOL), be sure to do so as well!

There were so many hotties all year long – I’m so glad that I actually don’t have to determine a winner… that’s your job. Any of the guys below could be the top pick so I have no idea how it’s going to turn out. As a side note, as we move into the New Year, feel free to leave suggestions in comments for athletes you’d like to see us cover in these weekly posts. I have done a few years worth of these posts so for some of the well known athletes, chances are I have covered them. That being said, share anyway because there are so many more men to tackle in 2013 ;) Happy voting!

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

The first two rounds of our Sports Stud 2012 Showdown have wrapped up, with two new finalists being added to the final showdown. In Round 1, Lance Parker took the top spot, with who happened to be my first Sports Stud of the year in 2012. In second place was sexy volleyball player, J.P. Calderon whom you know best from Survivor. Last week, the voting for Round 2 was in full swing, with Olympic gymnast Jake Dalton taking the lead and diver David Boudia just barely making it into second ahead of some close competition.

Check out all of the Sports Studs from the third round below. Whichever two studs get the most votes will move onto the final round, kicking off a week from today. Happy voting!

Sports Stud: David Pocock

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight Australian rugby union player, David Pocock. He’s 24-years old and 230 lbs of hotness. He was a finalist for Young Australian of the Year this year and in the summer, spoke openly about being against homophobia and being in support of marriage equality. In fact, he stated that he would not get married until it was legal for gays to do so in Australia. Here’s what he said on an Australian show called Q&A:

“The biggest thing in this debate is that we’re dealing with people here. And how can you blame someone for what they are? People don’t choose their sexuality and we marginalise the LGBTI community for what they are. I think that this is a conversation that needs to be had and that needs to be discussed compassionately and actually come to something that’s reasonable. And in my mind, that’s marriage for everyone. We’ve moved forward on so many issues and this is the next progression….A lot of gay people may not believe in the institution of marriage, but I believe it needs to be an option. How can we be challenging homophobia when we’re saying. ‘You’re equal to me but you’re separate. I’ll go sign this [marriage] document here but you can go have your civil union,’ which is the same, but not, really.”

Check out his sexy pictures as well as a video clip from what he said on Q&A below. Seriously, with his bootylicious and beefy bod, Pocock is one of the sexiest Sports Studs I’ve posted about all year.

Pics and video after the jump…

I’m sorta in an Aussie state of mind this weekend, given this post and my previous one about the sexy elevator ride yesterday. What can I say, I love the land down under, especially after visiting it recently. The only thing that would make it better is if the gays were allowed to marry.

Fashion magazine Marie Claire has taken a bold step to legalize gay marriage in Australia. The publication teamed up with the marriage-equality campaign, “I Do“. Together they’ve enlisted several Aussie celebrities to don the “I Do” tees and declare those two all-important words. From Rachel Griffiths (Muriel’s Wedding) to another Rachel, former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Rachael Taylor, celebrities from any profession are included in the clip. A real-life gay couple of many years is also part of the montage.

Speaking of gay, cutie Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham is shown in the video along with super hot rugby player David Pocock. Now that’s some “pocock” I’d like to get in a rugby scrum with. That beefy 24-year-old athlete is all kinds of sexy. Watch him along with other Aussies and Scary Spice Mel B (WTF is she doing there???) say “I Do” below.
