We have a new Most Handsome Young Man…and your winner is JOHN CHO. That’s right, the guy who brought the term “MILF” into our lexicon is now your Most Handsome Young Man. We could not be more delighted.
It was a fight down to the last-minute. John took an early lead the first day of the poll, but then Stephen Amell surged on Thanksgiving (THANKS FOR THE TRAFFIC ARROW FANS) and his lead seemed to be insurmountable. But the ChoNuts and the Selfie fans never gave up (You know we love scrappy fans of endangered shows!). They steadily chipped away at the Arrow’s lead, and when I came out of the movies yesterday, with 2.5 hours to go in the poll, they had closed the lead to 100 votes (Amell was leading by as much as 400 at one point). By the time I got home, the lead had closed to 70. By the time the polls closed, John and Amell had basically flipped places, with John winning by 104 votes. WELL DONE, Selfie fans, who surely got a leg up from the Sleepy Heads. They wanted to keep the Most Handsome Young Man award in the family, you know.
Sage waxed poetic about why John Cho was worthy of the Most Handsome Young Man title in our post about the nominees. I really can’t say it any better than that, so instead let’s just blatantly objectify him. Is everyone okay with that? I thought so.
Congratulations, John. May your reign be HANDSOME.
Your Runner-Up: Stephen Amell
A firm handshake and an uncomfortably long (for him) hug to our second place finisher, Stephen Amell. Should John Cho even be unable to fulfill his duties as our Most Handsome Young Man (They’re in the fine print, boys. Shhhh…read them later….), Amell will step in. And by “step in,” I mean he’ll probably come crashing through a window and throw those duties over his shoulder in a fireman’s carry.
Congratulations to John and Stephen and thanks to all of you for voting! It’s good to know that there are thousands of you who are as passionate about recognizing handsomeness as we are.
