The Top 50 Finalists for the 2011 Cleo Bachelor of the Year have been revealed with a shift in what us women are looking for, preferring the ‘guy next door’ as opposed to the ‘dangerous womaniser’, someone who cares for the world around him but they’ve still gotta be sexy!
The every-day superhero shines this year, with selected finalists including Olympic swimmer Eamon Sullivan, Bondi Rescue\’s Anthony “Harries” Carroll, Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman Caine Eckstein, professional surfer Dion Agius and personal trainer Blake Worrall-Thompson from Lifestyle YOU\’s Eat Yourself Sexy. These men are hard-working and enjoy a challenge, whilst looking good.
CLEO Editor, Gemma Crisp explains: “Australian women have enough drama in their lives, without adding to it with a womanising, egotistical scandal-magnet – which is why CLEO\’s 50 Most Eligible Bachelors for 2011 consist of everyday guys who just happen to be hot, sexy, inspirational and talented & and in some cases, maybe a little bit famous!”
Creative males are up next in the mix of CLEO Bachelors including Don Lane’s son PJ Lane, as well the usual line up of some footy players but it’s good to see they don’t dominate.
Gemma highlights the caring side of this year’s bachelors that will make us swoon even more: “From the Olympic swimmer who couldn\’t resist showing off photos of his new puppy at the Bachelor photo shoot and our Wildcard who donated almost $40,000 of underwear to the Queensland flood victims to the Bachelor who works for a company that organises mentorships for indigenous high school kids, Australian women can\’t resist a guy who goes out of his way to help others.”
The CLEO Bachelor of the Year Finalists were chosen by a celebrity team of judges, including MTV VJ Erin McNaught, Scarlett Belle\’s Tamara Jaber, Australian fashion designer Rachel Gilbert, X-Factor finalist India-Rose Madderom, Australia\’s Next Top Model\’s Charlotte Dawson, Sydney gossip columnists Elle Halliwell and Joel Christie, sportswoman and model Lauren Eagle, fashion commentator Melissa Hoyer, model and Sydney IT girl Nikki Phillips.
The finalists are published in CLEO\’s April issue, on shelves today, with the winner to be announced at the finalist event on 20 April 2011.
