Israel’s Netta and Cyprus’ Eleni Foureira may have been the leading ladies of Eurovision 2018 but there was plenty of male talent on show as well. The men brought a lot to the contest in 2018. Germany’s Michael Schulte carried emotion and a gorgeous red mane, Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef oozed sex appeal while shaking his hips and Hungary’s AWS showed off their wild side with barefooted runs and a whole lot of musical shouting.

But what do all of them share? A desire to turn their 15 minutes of Eurovision fame into a sustainable and long-lasting career. Our annual search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model honours those with the biggest chance to keep the Eurovision glory alive long after the contest fades. That’s one reason we’re staging this in mid-October!

Israel are the defending champions of ENTMM — the premiere online modelling contest for the men of Eurovision — with Imri Ziv taking home the honour in 2017. However, they won’t be defending that title, as they sent a woman in 2018 (and snatched the overall Eurovision crown in the process).

So, before we all dive head first into national finals season ahead of Eurovision 2019, we need your help to decide who has the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to succeed as an international superstar moving forward.

Below you can check out the artists’ modelling portfolios. But remember: beauty isn’t just about the physical. It’s also about how an entertainer entertains and their ability to engage people in conversation. With that in mind, be sure to consult our Eurovision 2018 interview playlist — also pasted below — before you make your final decision.

You have until November 9 to cast your votes. You can vote for as many artists as you like but you can only vote once so make your vote count!

For me: ALEKSEEV, Eugent and Stefan Gfeller. The others don’t impress me much. Cheers.

Girls, Please, Don’t fight because of different opinions. I also want Mél to win this poll, because his unique Beauty, personality, voice and style charmed me and because I am a proud Melovinator. But are not necessary offend girls of the another fandom and say that their idols are not able to win too. It’s a question of taste of each one. Just share Love by Mél and for your idols, not hate against the others. MÉL for the win <3

I’m wondering whether my votes (going to Cesár and Eugent – two artists through and through) have any chance against the fanbase voting for Mikolas, Mélovin or Alexander Rybak.

Melovin – interesting personality, sincere person, unique charisma, model appearance?

Meliris
Guest
Meliris

great voice, talented pianist, writes his own songs, magnetic personality, goes his own way, independent, very brave, not backed by big money or producers who wanted to put him in their mold, great sense of style(and smell 😉 )… shall I continue..? 😉

VanillaGirl

You forgot to mention that Mélovin was the ONLY eurovision contestant who was nominee to 100 Most Handsome Men 2018, so… I think this is relevant for this poll. 😉

Soma and Roni from AWS! <3
Btw, they should be separated, not just ''men of AWS''!

Same with Equinox. They should be separated. I love Johnny Manuel, but i don’t like the other men of the band.

well for me it’s: 1. Mikolas, 2. Alekseev, 3. Rassmussen, 4. Alexander Reybak, 5. Alfred.
Mikolas is by far the most handsome man we had this year with charming personality to add(and ME GUSTA is great). Alekseev is very attractive with his hair not glued together(and is a huge star in ukraine and russia). Rassmussen & Alexander Reybak are great performers and i am sure we will see them again in ESC, Alfred is very cute and given time he may come back as a solo act for spain.

Like in every poll 2018 I can predict the winner right now, cause it’s a story for itself this year 😀 But well, I really prefer Mélovin and Mikolas cause I want twinks like myself 😀

Given that Cesar used to model, I don’t see how this is a contest…

Cesar wasn’t nominee to 100 Most Handsome Men 2018… but MÉLOVIN was. 🙂

Wiwibloggs…I see what you’re doing. Creating this poll 5 months after the contest, with the hope that the “new melovinators” was just a temporary thing, well you’re wrong. We’re still here. We made Mélovin win both best music video and best postcard, we can make Mél win next male top model as well.

You’ve done everything in your power to not make Mélovin win. You are removing comments chanting “Mélovin!”, you used outdated photos (that counts for more acts), as well as only using shirtless pictures of Mikolas, even though you claim looks aren’t everything – awfully hypocritical.

Not nice of you, mr Salad. But I am rather intrigued by the “creep”who scores high on the uniqueness, talent, charisma and nerves scale and is a great performer, born for the stage and is also off stage very entertaining…. while your guy cezar seems a bit more regular.

VanillaGirl
Guest

MÉLOVIN is a fascinating guy, in many levels. And I don’t feel the need to atack your favourite, to make my statement.

Sorry?? I don’t want to be associated with your oppinions as well, I have my own voice. 🙂 This is the nickname I always used in wiwibblogs. It doesn’t bother me you have a similar nickname, but if it bothers you, feel free to change yours.

are you for real? it’s all about personal taste! for me Mikolas is way morre atractive than Melovin….if you team up for melovin it means you are taking this to loonyville.

This comment is obviously from a Melovin hater. Throwing shade on him by claiming his pics are bad, implying he’s not as hot as Mikolas, making Melovinators sound crazy. Nice try “Angry”! We are here and we aren’t crazy!

Melovin

With his height (184 cm) and face, I can imagine him competing in Ukraine’s Next Top Model.

Crystal
Guest

My top five:
5. Benjamin Ingrosso
4. MÉLOVIN
3. Cesár Sampson (he could easily model as a side career)
2. Waylon (those smoldering blue eyes could melt any photo spread)
1. Mikolas Josef (please, that shirtless pic is ridiculous, like Mark Wahlberg in his Marky Mark days or Marcus Schenkenberg modeling for Calvin Klein back in the ‘90s)

Kris

Most likely to have a successful modeling career ?

Mikolas

Why Gromee and Lukas are voted separately, but Fabrizio and Ermal are together? Doesn’t make much sense…

I believe those “??” should be “!!” But if that’s a question, the answer is YES!!!

VanillaGirl

…the answer is YES, Mélovin absolutely!

VanillaGirl

Btw, wiwibloggs, why did you deleted the comment I was answering to? It doesn’t said anything wrong, just Mélovin. Without it, my answer don’t make any sense.

Wiwibloggs, I love you guys, and I respect your work a lot, but I really disagree with the photo edit you made to promote this poll. Of course you can’t use pictures of all the contestants, and the guys you chose is up to you. But I think you shouldn’t put a contestant in a standing out position facing the others. Because that’s what you did by using a shirtless pic, twice of the size of the others, right in the middle. Honestly, when I first saw this I thought I’ve missed the voting, the poll was already closed and… Read more »

darling, you do know Mikolas used to model right? who in his right mind would object to that photo?

VanillaGirl
Guest

I have no problem with the photo, and it could be used to announce the results in case Mikolas win. Since the pool is open, I just think no contestant should be standing out in this edit.

check it out, wiwibloggs! (“with you, with me and enough” but then in ukrainian, which can’t be be posted here for some reason). It premiered less than 24 hours ago… a very comforting song. Such a talented beautiful man.
