It is my honor and my pleasure to present this week’s Man Candy Monday profile winner, the incredibly talented and ridiculously gorgeous, Johnny Depp. You can check out his full profile over at World of Female by clicking here. Before we get into this week’s poll, I want to take a moment or two to talk about why I’m so happy Johnny won. First of all, he is without a doubt one of my favorite actors working today. I’ve loved him since seeing him in Fear and Loathing Las Vegas when I was but a young thing and immediately rented as many of his movies as I could. Cry-Baby? Blow? Donnie Brasco? Finding Neverland? All freaking fantastic. Chocolat remains my favorite romantic movie to this very day. Then of course, you have the Pirates series and movies like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland. When Tim Burton and Johnny Depp get together, magic happens. I loved Sweeney Todd in ways I can’t begin to explain despite the fact I have a strong distaste for musicals. Johnny is an actor completely unafraid to take risks. I had been excited for The Rum Diary (my all time favorite book, by the way) since I heard about it and ran to the theater the moment it was released. Some would call it a flop because it didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. I, on the other hand, call it a roaring success and a tremendous adaptation of a tremendous book. Okay. There’s my rant. Let’s get to this week’s vote. Check out your candidates and the poll after the vote.
As some of you may have noticed, there was no Man Candy Monday last week. There’s a reason for that but it’s dramatic and long winded and I’ve already ranted enough. Let’s just say things kind of suck in Stereo Girl world right now but this isn’t the place to talk about bad stuff. This is a place to talk about Man Candy and as I’m sure you all know, there is no such thing as sadness when looking at beautiful men. This week we have a great line up but remember, you can always nominate someone that isn’t on the list by commenting on this post. You can also submit nominations via Facebook (click here or here) or on Twitter (click here or here) . Make sure you check the Man Candy Monday archive before you submit a nomination though. You can visit the archive by clicking here. The archive features a complete list of all past winners as well as links to each past winner’s complete profile. Okay, enough talk – let’s get to the Candy!
Candy Candidate One: Jamie Dornan
Coming in second last week with 17.6% of the vote, Jamie easily earned himself another week on our Candy Candidates poll. I’m pretty excited about that. While I wasn’t aware of Jamie until his turn as the mysterious Sheriff/Huntsman on one of my favorite new dramas of the fall television season, Once Upon a Time, I fell in love deeply and quickly. Should Jamie win, he would be the second OUAT cast member to take the prize, following in the sexy footsteps of Prince Charming, Josh Dallas. (View Josh’s full profile by clicking here)
Candy Candidate Number Two: Benedict Cumberbatch
While I was fairly surprised to see Benedict’s name show up among the write in nominees, I was also thrilled. I abso-freaking-lutely love this guy and am thrilled to know I’m not alone in that. He definitely has a loyal fan base, earning enough votes to stick around for another week. I won’t like, I’m rooting for Mr. Dornan but wouldn’t be the least bit upset if Benedict took the win. He deserves it.
Candy Candidate Number Three: Shemar Moore
What can a girl say about a guy like Shemar Moore. The man is pretty close to the perfection. He’s beautiful, talented and has a smile that could stop hearts. Plus, ya know, there’s that body of his. I wasn’t surprised to see Shemar get a write in nomination although I am a little surprised it took as long as it did. What really shocks me is the fact that he really didn’t get that many votes, just barely making his way to a three way tie for second. All the same, it was enough to keep him around another week.
Candy Candidate Number Four: Timothy Olyphant
Looooooooooove him. That’s about all I have to say about this one.
Candy Candidate Number Five: Nick Wechsler
My first personal nomination of this week goes to Revenge‘s Nick Wechsler. While I know a lot of people are all about Joshua Bowman (who I also love and have chosen as my personal nominee in the past), over the last few episodes, Nick has really been stealing the spotlight for me. I can’t wait to see how he does on this week’s poll.
Candy Candidate Number Six: Wilson Bethel
Hart of Dixie‘s Wilson Bethel was a logical choice for my second personal nominee this week, mainly because he’s absolutely gorgeous and always makes me smile. I had him on the poll once before but he wasn’t able to garner enough votes to stick around. Hopefully that changes this week.
Okay – now you know who your candidates are, it’s time to vote.
