|Cam's the dinner date of choice!|
The commanding winner in the reader's choice poll to determine which homoerotic wrestler readers would most want to have visit their homes for dinner was none other than wrestling hunk extraordinaire Cameron Mathews. He crossed the finish line with 36% of the vote, which is a decisive testimony to the loyal fans he's earned from working that gorgeous bubble butt of his off from coast to coast and production to production over the past decade. He held steady at or around 50% of the vote through most of the two days that the poll was open, in fact, looking like he was going to blow away his next closest competition by more than double. However, just this morning, with mere hours left to vote, shit got interesting!
|Skip convinces Christian that he'll show up for dinner with a fan too!|
That's when fierce little scrapper Skip Vance put out a message on Facebook lobbying his fans to mount a come from behind maneuver on Cam (and who among us haven't fantasized about a come from behind maneuver on Cam!?). Skip offered one fan selected at random to be treated to a dinner made by his own hands if he ends up on top of the polls once all is said and done. He instantly got a bump, pulling ahead of Kid Karisma for second place. When Skip added that both he and former homoerotic wrestler of the month and Skip's lover, Christian Taylor, would sit down to said dinner with the randomly selected fan, the sprint to the finish line was on! He began to close the distance with Cam at such a pace that I was seriously beginning to suspect a photo finish. While Cam limped across the line with the decisive victory, nobody was stronger around the last turn than hot and eager Skip! As to whether he'll still auction off a dinner date, we'll have to wait and see.
|Kid Karisma can't believe you left him in 3rd place!|
Third place winner and party-boy muscle stud Kid Karisma has got to be scratching his head right about now wondering how he not only got outpaced by Cam but blown-by flat footed by late bloomer Skip! Somehow, I'm guessing with his life-of-the-party karisma and astonishingly sexy body (look... at... that... ASS!!!), Kid K has never been short of dinner invitations. If he's ever in need of a hot meal and adoring company, he's got a place at my table anytime. As for restraining myself from putting my hands on those glutes, no promises, Kid K.
|Dinner? Steel Muscle God Dan may be too busy being worshipped!|
Not surprisingly, Steel Muscle God Dan had a very solid showing in the poll. It's not surprising because if you spend any time at all at steelmusclegod.com, you pick up on the fact very quickly that Dan's got a worldwide following of extremely rabid fans who are very, very loyal to SMG. If he'd put out the call to his worshippers to really mobilize the vote, I strongly suspect he'd have put some hurt on even Cam. I'm not too worried that SMG's ego will take a hit for not winning the reader's choice poll here. He's got muscles of steel, for god's sake, and the self-confidence to strip naked and demand to be worshipped. However, if he's ever in the neighborhood and feeling peckish, he can take solace in the fact that I'll be more than happy to set another place at the table.
|"A Fabulous Dinner Date!"|
Through back channels I was delighted to hear that Lon Dumont had an opinion on the matter. His opinion was, of course, that he'd make a "fabulous dinner date!" He also mentioned that since he's been dieting like a fiend in preparation for the bodybuilding season about to commence any minute, he could seriously put 2nds and 3rds away right now, so plan ahead if you invite him to dinner. Lon knows that he has a standing invitation to my table, and I'm also ever ready to apply his instant tan all over every inch of his body before any and every competition (which wasn't up for consideration in the poll, but I just wanted to make that point clear).
|Not everyone could handle an evening with Eli Black|
I'm guessing Eli Black knows full well why he didn't win. You were too fucking scared of him! Truth be told, despite his expansive ego and fiercely competitive spirit when it comes to absolutely everything, I just bet that the Shutdown would completely charm the pants off you if you had him over for dinner. Of course, the poll wasn't about who you're ready to take your pants off for, but even keeping my pants on, I'd be delighted and honored to pass Eli the mashed potatoes.
|Darius "BMG" is looking for a taste of SMG!|
Darius had a solid showing in the poll, reflecting what I happen to know is a loyal base of fans who've been wanting to see more of this Black Muscle God - more screen time and more skin! Darius let it be known that he doled out his vote for Steel Muscle God, because despite SMG being a no-show to face Darius stateside, Darius still has his sights set on an epic showdown between the Steel Muscle God and the Black Muscle God. Fuck the poll! I'll push my furniture to the walls to watch that battle of the gods live!
|Is that Chris Isaak? No, it's hot jobber Ken Canada!|
Long-time friend and contributor to this blog, Stay Puft, let it be known that he simply had to register his vote for energizer bunny and possessor of endless hotness and stories of hotness, Ken Canada. He never picked up traction in the polling, but I have to agree with S.P. when he points out that Ken's sense of humor and enthusiastic understanding of the eroticism of wrestling would make him a truly entertaining dinner date!
|Cage Thunder is busy serving up some meat of his own|
I happen to know that Cage Thunder registered his vote in the poll for Lon. Get those two bull dozers on the same page and I can't imagine what tag team would dare step foot in the ring with them. But around the dinner table, I can't help but figure that meal would go into the wee hours of the morning as these two profoundly reflective men trade wit and wisdom from never-ending reserves. Personally, I'm a little astonished Cage Thunder didn't show better in the polling, and I have to chalk it up to Eli's theory that there were just a whole lot of you too damn frightened to sit across the table from him. Not me. He's got a standing invitation at chez Bard.
|Don't bother Ben with dinner invitations. He's building a wrestling career, people!|
The rookie sensation with magical lips, Ben Monaco never managed to build a head of steam in voting. Big Ben is brand spanking new to the industry, of course, so pitting him against absolute fixtures in homoerotic wrestling like Cameron Mathews was always going to be an uphill battle for him. My educated guess is that Ben isn't surprised at all that he wasn't the top vote-getter, and if anything he's just that much more eager to plant his hot ass on another opponent's face and absolutely make you forget all about the rest for a moment and marvel at him as he tests what he's got against the best at BGE. Ben knows he's just at the beginning of an incredibly sexy, demanding journey into our hearts, but as for me I've got a casserole and a bottle of wine just waiting for him.
