Every year the men of Eurovision wow millions of viewers with their vocals and choreography. But once they leave the stage they have even more work to do. That’s because the race to win Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model—the premier online modeling contest for men competing at the Eurovision Song Contest—continues long after the cameras stop rolling. The dream of winning the title compels them to keep pumping iron and drinking protein shakes. The strongest contenders have to deal with the ever-present paparazzi and bloggers who stalk them in search of that elusive shirtless pic.

Gianluca Ginoble 67
ENTMM 2015: Italy’s Gianluca Ginoble

This year we’ve faced an extra difficult task separating the men from the boys. On April 4 thirty-nine mostly attractive men entered the Top Model House. Along the way we had to say goodbye to 23 of them. Denmark’s Nikolaj Toth was more concerned about taking lewd selfies than he was about mastering his angles. And the UK’s Alex Larke preferred wearing a garish LED-lit suit to slipping into one made by Armani. On May 20, sixteen men advanced to the finals. Now, after counting 52,773 votes in the semi-finals and another 22,755 votes in the final, we can finally announce that Italy’s Gianluca Ginoble is Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2015.

But today we don’t just celebrate Gianluca. Armenia’s Essaï and Italy’s Ignazio Boschetto, our first and second runner-up, have each earned a place in the Top Model Hall of Fame. They made a good run and have issued a statement that they are stars to watch. Gianluca and Ignazio are the first Italians to enter the Top Model Hall of Fame since Marco Mengoni finished as second runner-up in 2013. Essaï is the first Armenian male to make our hall of fame, though Eva Rivas and Tamar Kaprelian have done so for Armenia’s women.

Winner’s Portfolio: Gianluca Ginoble

The Winner: Gianluca Ginoble

Gianluca knows how to work his angles. Telegenic, photogenic, and always looking for the light, he stares through the camera and into your soul. Just check out his eyes on stage in Vienna. This is sex face, y’all.

il volo gianluca

He demonstrated this again following our interview at Eurovision 2015. When it was time to take a selfie, Gianluca happily grabbed our phone and stretched his worked-out arm. His beard added some delicious scruff to the overly-manicured world of Eurovision.

Gianluca promised to give the world his “Grande Amore”, and our readers have taken up the offer. This Italian Stallion is ready to gallop from the Eurovision stage to the runway. Gianluca: You’ve got the muscle to support the immense weight of this title. Now carry it into the world and make us proud!

First Runner-Up: Essaï

First Runner-Up: Armenia's Essaï

When Armenian television sought a European representative for their international group Genealogy, they looked to France and Essaï Altounian. We instantly went oo la la! The studly Armenian-French singer combines the soul of Armenia with the sex appeal of France. In an interview with wiwibloggs he said that creativity burns inside him and that he just has to share it. We’re ready to feel your heat any day of the week.

From the interview room to the red carpet, he brings style and class and a killer accent. Essaï, should Gianluca be unable to fulfill his duties as Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2015, we know what you have what it takes to fill his high fashion shoes. Merci bien and à bientôt.

Second Runner-Up: Ignazio Boschetto

Ignazio Boschetto is third in our search, but he may be tops when it comes to personality. The tallest of the three members of Il Volo, he brings heavyweight humour and fun to the table. This is how he reacted when he learned that he was in fourth position at the end of the Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model semi-finals.

Ignazio 2
Ignazio 3
Ignazio 4

Having already arrived and made a name for himself globally, Ignazio can unwind and kick back with the people. He was one of the most laidback contestants at Eurovision 2015. In a field of self-important pop stars, his down-to-earth realness was a breath of fresh air. Ignazio: Remember who you are and you’ll go far. The world is your oyster and baby, it’s time to eat!

Ignazio ugly ?! It is a joke or what..? If in your eye is ugly, in my eyes is beautiful. Handsome man with a charming smile and a great personality. All that makes
him special. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” !

Ignazio might do not deserve this runner up place but he is not hideous or plain ugly though…He is ok…And he seems kinda cool guy..
I really do not have anything against him & i do not dislike him..

Guy Sebastian is eww…He is not ugly but good looking…But except of the fact that he is not that handsome & definitely the most handsome or from the hottest participants he is not sympathetic…And i just disliked his song & his whole lame bruno mars clone persona..

Jeez…. Well you do not need to make really such a fuzz over this..
Im not really sad that i was the one that harrashed by this troll…So why should it bother you really..?
Just get over about what happened today dude..
WiWiBloggs are just ok i guess…(Yes..They will live….)

If in any separate single articles here some drama is created every now & then for any reason do not go into the conclusion that this situation is occuring mainly all the time here on WiWiBloggs…Just stop over worrying when there is no need for that..

What a relief its not Vaidas. I like him personally but he only placed high before due to his shirtless pictorial. Gianluca is the perfect winner cuz he is a mix of classy & hunky. And wow Ignacio is 3rd!? I remember when Il Volo first debuted, he was the chubby one but had the most adorable sun-kist dimple when he smiled 🙂 Wish he shaved his beard a bit so we everyone else can witness it again….

Is this post, and its result and comments, up to your standard, wiwibloggs? Or is it just starting to get a bit sad?

Overall on both men & women..
Gianluca & Tamar winning WiWiBloggs Next Top Models of this year’s EuroVision
were both fantastic picks…I do not object at all that it was these two that were voted as winners..

@ Well whats really have to do that you are not gay…I just wonder now about that & thats all.. {i do not expect a reply but was just wondering as i wrote..}
To be honest ok Mans is not so handsome…He is attractive babe but there are others like Gianluca,Vaidas that are hotter & more handsome..

Il Volo are adorable <3
Piero is very hottie & sweet babe too <3
The adorable type of the dorky guy that wears glasses.. <3
Ignazio although not that handsome he is ok & funny cool guy..

They really match together as boy band..
Their voices are really amazing..

Im sorry that they did not win the trophy although they were the winners of televoting with big gap of points even..

In 2011 Italy lost the trophy because of the televoting & now Italy again lost the trophy because of the juries this time…Really ironic..

Do you think that i did not try to figure this out with changing my email adress?? They block your computer… You were only lucky that for some reason your ip adress was not get blocked.. Because if that happens you are just scr*wed.. And why blaming really William for this when anyone can have the option/access to vote on the site’s poll..?

William can’t block IP’s. He can’t even make sure that he’s poll’s don’t get spammed. Not only are you gay but you also have the I.Q of a rabbit.

@ So you have another computer pc to be allowed to post here?
And yeah really good reason to hate all the gays just because of me alone..
Keep in mind that there are hundreds of millions other gays in the world & im just only single one…
I do not represent not even the 0,0001 % of them..
Really childish stupid reason if you ask me..
I do not hate all the straight people just because of a person like you so why shouldn’t you..? Just shut up & get lost.. xx

Just Mario only..

@ Maltish/Goran
William is the main admin of WiWiBloggs & its really offensive to troll against him like that….He didn’t give any right to you to treat him like that..

If i was an admin of WiWiBloggs i would had banned you from the site already even 2 days ago when you wrote your homophobic s**t under Polina’s article..

It is such unfortunate that not only you were busted as big homophobe but as troll too….What a shame..

Oh one more thing… I know they brought up Gianluca’s wink, but what about Ignazio’s pointing at the camera? It’s like he’s saying “I’m coming for that title, Vaidas from Lithuania!” I think that moment is when everyone voted and brought him to the top 3! 😀

@ Ok no worries girl.. 🙂 I was suspicious but was not sure…Thank you that u let me know about that.. 🙂 And you do not have to apologize and write that you are not homophobic because i can tell that you are not of course 🙂 If anyone is homophobe can not hide it & his homophobia smells stinks from far away.. Yeah this troll is hella anoying but we can hope that the admins will eventually block him and we will get rid of him 🙂 And by the way i was thinking exactly the same about Piero… Read more »

@TheRealMario I wasn’t talking to you! Was talking about the many other alter egos invading Wiwi lately! And no I’m not a lesbian or a homophobe (have a gay sibling and plenty of friends in the LGBT community)! I’m just a ESC fan like everyone else here who rather spend the time getting ready for 2016, drooling over the guys from this year’s contest, and wait for the much anticipated VMAs (when will that start) than go through 20+ replies about stuff that shouldn’t be here. Back on topic…. Piero and his hipster red glasses should get more love, even… Read more »

@ homophobic *Maltish/Goran*
And now i think that even the user with the nickname *please put Mario in check* is YOU as well….

But if its not really the case….

It is 101% obvious that this anti-me troll is not ME & everyone should had figured out about that of course..
At least i do not write like that dumb retardish trollish way & neither my nicknames are like that..

Seriously, can Mario just go away or just calm down? I’m all for opinions good or bad but whoever Mario is needs to calm the heck down. Not all readers on Wiwi are gay (straight female here) nor male contestants are gay.

Going back on topic, as much as I love Mans, I had a feeling Gianluca will win this. The wink sealed the deal! 😉

Compensating for Italy??? You guys are fools. Gianluca, Ignazio, and Piero are so handsome!!!! They are manly men and are so charming!! Yes, they are beautiful men and their singing makes us soar. Their families have raised them right. These are fine men. They are very good to all their fans – very good! Handsome means inside AND out. We don’t need to have a trophy to show that Il Volo reigns! The whole world knows it now. By the way, I’m swedish from Minnesota. Doesn’t matter. I love my Italian boys!!!!!!!

@ Ok we get it…You hate me & you are hater of mine…
Why do you even care about me so to troll against me with this way?

Maltish/Goran you are really obsessed about FYR..
You better watch out this obsession of yours because it will hurt you..
You really think that the admins will not ban you from the site if you continue doing this for longer?
William must feel not flattered that you trashwrote about him as well..
So get prepared to get blocked…Because you WILL..

and making *fhgfhatgdgd* typos errors with not writing the letters of the words on the right order in the keaboard..

And because im always too bored to check again my whole comments thats why they are posted like that…Yeah im clumsy.. 😛
