Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay in posting the FINAL results for the 2010 Man Crush Showdown. Thanks for all your patience. As you all know, the voting was supposed to end at Monday January 3rd 9am PST, but due to technical difficulties it remained opened for another 2 hours, when it was manually shut down around 11am PST.
To keep the integrity of the poll, I wanted to deduct the votes cast after the predetermined time. After a couple of days, I feel confident in disclosing the final numbers. The finals brought in record voting numbers. With over 140,000 votes cast, the Man Crush that stood over all the rest is…. drum roll please… Scott Herman. With almost 50% of the votes, his fans propelled the fitness model and former Real World’r atop the rest. CONGRATULATIONS SCOTT HERMAN.
For several weeks, Homorazzi.com readers have been casting their votes for their pick as 2010’s Ultimate Man Crush. On a weekly basis during 2010, I’ve shared my weekly man crushes with you. Sometimes they were hits, and sometimes they were misses, but each won my cyber heart for a whole week. After tens of thousands of votes during three preliminary rounds, here are you finalists.
Fitness buff Scott Herman and Brit heartthrob Henry Cavill come via Round 1, with Herman winning. Round 2 gave us Colton Haynes and 90210’s Matt Lanter. Originally I was going to make the finals consist of only 5 finalists: the winner of each round and the next two vote getters. But with the hustle and bustle of Christmas week and a shorter voting period than the rest, Round 3 contestants didn’t get their fair due. Having said that, I’ve selected the top three- Maxwell Zagorski, James Preston and Charlie Williams – to compete in the finals.
Make sure to vote for your favorite and vote often. Voting ends Monday Jan 3, 2011 when the winners will be announced 9am PST.
Recent front runner in Donovan’s Man Crush Battle Round 1, Scott Herman posed for Mint Male Magazine and my my my, I can see why you all voted for this man. Posing in rollerblades, doing handstands, and lazing around, Scott Herman shows off his sculpted abs and pecs perfectly. This cover shoot was shot in Chicago with photographer Bret Grafton.
Scott just returned from a trip to Boca Raton, FL where he shot an ad campaign for his new supplement sponsor BSN. Pick up your copy of Mint Male Magazine to check out all the juice on Mr. Man Crush but for now, check out the stunning photos to get a taste.
2010 is coming to a close and it’s time to crown this year’s hottest Man Crush. Last year, your votes named Alex O’Loughlin as my hottest weekly crush choice for 2009. This year, our weekly man crush feature was bigger and more popular than ever.
I’ve decided to split up the contenders into three parts. The first post will feature choices from the months of January, February, March and April. Hotties from Taylor Lautner to Noah Mills and everything in between occupied these weeks. The winner of Round 1 will advance to the finals. Check out the studs in contention below and don’t forget to cast your votes.
