Some say that real men don’t cry. But the 39 men competing to win Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2017 certainly do. In the past week they have poured blood, sweat and tears into our competition—the world’s premier online modelling contest for the men competing at the Eurovision Song Contest. They’ve strained muscles working out, and they’ve had to eat lean protein and vegetables instead of cheesecake. For some of these men the pain is about to get a lot worse, as we cut 39 semi-finalists down to 14. The semi-finals of Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2017 end now.

More than 30 attractive men stand before me. But I only have 14 photos in my hands. And these 14 photos represent the 14 of you who are still in the running to win Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2017. Those of you whose name I do not call out must immediately return to the House of Wiwi, pack up your protein powder, and go home.

The acts whose names I do call will advance to the finals of Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model, which kicks off tomorrow.

Our readers cast a total of 16,883 votes in the semi-finals. The man finishing in first place earned 1,921 of them (or around 11.4%). He’s singing a song called “I Feel Alive” and he is definitely giving our readers life. He is Israel’s IMRI.

Congratulations, IMRI. You’re still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model.

Finishing in second place — and 671 votes behind IMRI — is Sweden’s Robin Bengtsson.

The gym-honed stud uses his stage routine to stay in shape, performing on a treadmill to burn extra calories. That is how you slay.

Congratulations, Robin. You’re still in the running to become Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model.

Rounding out the Top 3 is a guy who puts the gentle in gentleman. He’s consistently impressed us with his kindness and openness — and of course his lovely voice.

Like Austria’s last Eurovision winner he has a luscious beard. He’s also got a spot in the Top Model final. He is Nathan Trent and he earned 1,250 votes — or around 7% of all those cast.

Now y’all: We ain’t got time to introduce you to everyone, so here are the full results of the semi-finals. The men in bold have made the final, which kicks off on Saturday. Voting will be reset to ZERO. The guys will need to up their game to stay in the race — even if they’re currently on top.

I like Yevhen (Eugene) … short form = Zhenya.
He seems to be a guy who doesn’t spend too much time in front of the mirror,
and that is a good thing.

Top of the top for me: Francesco and Imri! Mediterrenean realness!!

I also like Brendan (so sweet), Nathan (the happiest person! How can you not like him?) and Robin (he slays in this suit!)

There is nothing Mediterrenean in Imri’s roots. He is 100% Ashkenazi jew, which means that he is totally european.His mother was born in Romania (meaning that her family are Askenazi jews) and his father’s side family are some sort of mixture of Ukrainian jews and Austrian jews…so …still..totally Ashkenazi… He is not even a partial mixed with Sparadi (originally from Spain..till 1942..) jews or Mizrachi jews (Jews from the Arab world), as maybe almost half of today’s Israelis are (The Jewish population of Israel)…so -Mediterrenean he is not ! More like central/East Europe (like many Israelis). As for the Francesco,… Read more »

****…Spharadi jews..1492 of course (not 1942)……Amir (representing France last year) ,/.Nadav / Shiri Maimon etc…

Harel Skaat(2010) /Boaz (2008)/Dana international are Mizrachi jews..mostly from Yaman..still..it’s not Meditrerrenean – It’s more sort of Arab..

Mei finegold (2014) and Imri are Ashkenazi jews…East/Central Europe…

For Wiwibloggs editors:
N.B. This is a “signpost comment” from me, as a point of reference only. Once again, some of the comments below demonstrate why I believe this competition is inappropriate and should be stopped. After the contest is over, I hope that you have some time to review this matter separately. Enjoy Kyiv. 🙂

I hope none of the Eurovision guys who received lower rankings read this article… you may call me oversensitive but I find it quite harsh to publish all the rankings. It would be kinder to publish the top 10 only.

Colin
Guest
Colin

Exactly! That was my idea too. The poll should be vote-only without displaying the results option. When it’s all done, only top 5 or 10 should be publically known. The idea is to ‘crown’ someone as the most attractive, not showing who, by public opinion, isn’t as much. That should be fixed.

Justitia

Do not worry about them. When they see the TOP 5, they will burst out laughing, just like me.
No one can take seriously this ranking.

TOP 5 should be somewhere at the bottom…..meh…weird taste.

I don’t find IMRI that hot. He is too muscular and hard-looking for me.
I prefer Nathan, Brendan, and JOWST for example. Also Jimmie is really underrated.

I cannot, for the life of me, bring myself to find Imri hot.
I’m glad to see my baes Nathan and Brendan made it to the top 5. Now Robin needs to win.

I totally agree! Omar’s a handsome man. Have you looked at Deban’s interview with him? The outfit Omar was wearing really made him even hotter 😉
