In recent years, Wiwi’s search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model has championed the male physique, and made a case for putting men on the runway. The well-established contest is now the premier online modeling competition for men competing at the Eurovision Song Contest. Once again it’s time for you to help the team at WiwiBloggs.Com decide who has the man muscle to support the weight and pressure of this prestigious title.
Here’s how it will work. Twenty-eight men want a spot in Wiwi’s Top Model House. But WiwiBloggs.Com can only stand so much testosterone at once, and we only have so much work-out equipment in house. As such, we will conduct semi-final voting between now and April 28. From time to time the contestant with the lowest number of votes will be asked to pack up his protein powder and go home. On May 1, the last 15
men standing will advance to the final. All votes will be erased, and you guys will have another opportunity to vote in the final.
As with last year’s contest, Jedward will compete as one model. They’re identical twins, so Wiwi seriously doubts you can tell them apart in a photo spread (even if they aren’t fully clothed). We have also taken liberties with other groups. For instance, only Compact Disco‘s lead singer will compete because his back-up vocalists and instrumentalists did not submit complete portfolios. Elsewhere, the men of Mandinga will compete as one person. Collectively they have a lot of style and a complete portfolio.
Before you vote, be sure to watch all of the guys in action on Wiwi’s Contestants Page. You can vote for as many men as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to click the box next to every man you want to support before pressing “vote.” It’s up to you, Europe. Start voting now!
