And then there were ten. Now that the preliminary rounds are over, it’s time to kick the 2012 Man Crush Showdown into high gear. Over the next few days, your votes will crown a winner. Who will follow in the footsteps of Scott Herman and Jonathan D. Lovitz who won in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Check out the lucky recipients of the four wildcards below. Surprisingly, three of them come from Round 1 where the voting was feverish. Since I don’t want to persuade and affect the outcome, I’ll keep to myself the three Man Crushes I’m secretly rooting for. Without further ado, let the sexy games begin.
Man Crush Showdown Dates
The Top 2 from each round automatically advanced to the finals. Four wildcard spots were given to the Man Crushes who garnered the four highest vote totals from all rounds tabulated (winners excluded).
Round 1: Dec 13-19, 2012 (results announced Dec 20)
Round 2: Dec 20-26, 2012 (results announced Dec 27)
Round 3: Dec 27- Jan 2, 2012 (results announced Jan 3)
Finals: Jan 3-9, 2013 (Final Results announced Jan 10, 2013)
Just like my 2012 Model Behavior Showdown, the annual Man Crush Showdown is also off to a resounding success. Almost 20,000 votes were cast in Round 1. Unlike the first round of the Model Behavior showdown, the gap between the Top 3 here was more than five votes. There was a clear winner.
Coming in first place was actor Brandon Quinn with 5,001 votes. To be perfectly honest, I was a little surprised. Though sexy in that rough kind of way, I didn’t think he’d win Round 1. The other person to earn an automatic berth in the Final Round is Mario Casas (4,446 Votes). Props to our readers for advancing such a tasty foreign dish. Just missing out in third place is Aussie hunk, Dan Ewing with 3,743 votes. I’m sure with that total, he’ll earn one of the four wild card slots for the finals.
With Round 1 in the history books, it’s time to shift focus to Round 2. Check out this crop of my previous weekly Man Crushes. If you want more pictures of each stud, click on their name for their feature.

It’s Thanksgiving up here in Canada today and you know what I’m thankful? Ryan Guzman!!! The Step Up Revolution star is all kinds of sexy. Thankfully, he has no hang ups about showing that hot body of his. Not that I wish any misfortune on anyone but… Guzman’s acting career needs to seriously tank. That way, he has to resort to filming some gay-for-pay porn. LOL. I kid (slightly).
Titled “Night Swim“, the 25-year-old actor poses for a webitorial for Chaos Magazine. Snapped by photographer Leslie Andrews, Guzman wears very little clothing (a towel) in the black and white shoot. In certain pics, you can see his juicy bubble butt in all its glory with just a few trickles of water caressing it. Is it wrong to be jealous of H2O? Check out Ryan’s latest photo spread below.
Because, it’s Friday, I thought I’d share a little sexiness with you just to amp up your weekend. Back in July, total hottie and actor Ryan Guzman did an exclusive, sexy and shirtless photo shoot for our friends over at Just Jared. As you can image, the results were absolutely amazing. This clearly defined and cut stud wasn’t afraid to show off just how hard he works for his killer body. He also showed off some of his dance moves and tricks from his latest film, Step Up Revolution.
In the encompassing interview, the 24-year-old was drilled about the film but also answer some fun questions revealing his favorite actors are Tom Hardy and Christian Bale. When it comes to his music selection, Ryan doesn’t stray too far from R&B and Hip Hop citing Usher and Chris Brown as two of his go-tos. Check out some of the sexy shots below and hit the source to see a few with his clothes on.
Now, this is what Haley Reinhart should’ve chosen as her first single. “Undone” is exactly the kind of music that I want from the 21-year-old singer. “Free“, the lead cut from her debut album, didn’t exactly burn up the charts. It stalled at No. 104 on the Billboard Hot 100. Currently, “Free” is being used on this season of So You Think You Can Dance, as the exit song when dancers are eliminated. Perhaps, it’ll get a second life on the charts, but I don’t foresee it. I highly encourage Reinhart to film the music video for “Undone” and start promoting the shizz out of it, as it has the potential to be her breakout single.
“Undone” is the second track from the American Idol Season 10′s album Listen Up!. It’s definitely one of my favorites from her LP and glad she chose it as her next single. During her time on Idol, she performed a killer cover of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep“. Once again, Reinhart channels her inner Adele to belt out this amazing ballad. It definitely could fit seamlessly on the Brit’s 21 album. It’s very Adele-esque.
For the lyric video, images and clips from Step Up 4: Revolution are used. That sexy Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick show off their contemporary dance skills while Reinhart’s lyrics type across the screen. Check it out below.
Ryan Guzman is currently a very busy man. Aside from making his feature film debut in “Step Up Revolution,” he’s also taking some major time to help promote the film including a few sexy photo spreads. On Ryan’s official Facebook page, Guzman shared some of his latest shots for Cosmopolitan and Bello Mag with his fans.
In the album for his Cosmo shots, Ryan states that only one of the photos was chosen for the actual mag. Too bad considering that boy doesn’t take a bad shot. Like seriously. The shoot consists of Ryan hanging out in a rolled up t-shirt before taking it off and taking a dip in the pool. Mmm, a wet Ryan Guzman is definitely a sexy one. His shoot for Bello Mag was shot by Aleksander Tomovie and really shows off the more playful side of Ryan. Check out both photo spreads and tell us which shots are your favorite. Are you checking out “Step Up Revolution” this weekend?
Friday, July 27 is just around the corner and “Step Up Revolution” will be dancing its way into theaters near you. Featuring some of the industries leading choreographers in film and TV, the movie promises to show off some really slick moves not seen in the previous Step Up films. In fact, it’s being said that this instalment in the series is the most diverse in dance style yet. Did I mention that it’s also available in 3D?
The synopsis of the film is set in Miami, FL. Sean played by Ryan Guzman leads a flash mob troupe known as “The Mob”. Their dancing antics have garnered the attention of Miami newbie Emily played my So You Think You Can Dance alumni, Kathryn McCormick. When a big corporate business man plans to tear down their homes and neighborhood, Emily and Sean team up to rebel and make a difference through dance. Sounds compelling right? If the trailer hasn’t given you enough of a tease, you can watch the first three minutes of the film’s opening sequence below.
I was channel surfing the other day and noticed this week’s Man Crush in a movie trailer. Instantly, I became smitten with Ryan Guzman. Frequent readers of Homorazzi.com know I have a thing for hot guys with some serious hip-hop swagger. And Guzman has it oozing out of his pores. The 6-foot-tall stud is starring in “Step Up Revolution“- the fourth installment of the popular dance film franchise.
Naturally, he’s being compared to Channing Tatum, with some predicting he could follow Tatum’s footsteps to super stardom. Personally, I hope he follows Channing all the way to the “Magic Mike” sequel (yup, a sequel is being developed). I’d like to see Ryan bust out some sexy stripper moves ;) Papa has some dollar bills to spend.
“Step Up Revolution” marks Guzman’s acting debut. Previously, he worked as a model and was represented by Look Model Agency. The hazel-eyed hottie scored plenty of gigs due to his rock hard abs and adorable smile. His most noteworthy booking came in 2009 when he modeled for Calvin Klein underwear.
Tyrell wrote about Ryan Guzman when he first landed his role in the “Step Up” flick back in 2011. With “Step Up Revolution” hitting theaters soon, I thought it was time to re-introduce this stud. If you read Tyrell’s post, I purposely chose different photos than he did. Check out the pictures I picked below.
