Inspiration Showdown

Okay, my curiosity can't take it.  You all might remember in my last Weekly Inspiration post featuring Baptiste Giabiconi, I mentioned possibly doing a poll on which guy has been the favorite of all the Weekly Inspirations.  Well, I'm doing it!  To the right, if you scroll down, you'll find the poll to cast your vote.  They're in alphabetical order by their first names.  The only Weekly Inspiration posts I excluded were ones not about a specific guy, like the "Holiday Editions" and "Sweet Moments."

So, here's hoping you all will help satisfy my curiosity!  If a lot of people show interest in the poll and vote, maybe it's something I'll do every few months, and at the end of the year, have an ultimate Inspiration showdown with the winners.  For this round, I'm running it from the most recent Weekly Inspiration with Baptiste Giabiconi to the oldest with Akihiro Sato, and whoever wins will get a bonus Weekly Inspiration post with new pics.

Hope everyone has fun picking their favorite!  And now...get ready...set...vote!

  1. Its always Hugh for me so he is my vote.....but I sure as hell wouldn't kick Travis out or bed for eatin' crackers! Or anything else for that matter!

  2. I can totally understand loving on Akihiro. He's a whole lot of stunning.


    Oh, Hugh is super sexy, Deanna. Two words, Wolverine, naked. Yum. Okay, three words ;-)

  3. I saw Baptiste in the Heathrow airport this past spring. I about swallowed my tongue.

  4. LOL! Well, the fact that you didn't shows you're a stronger person than me! I would've been choking and sputtering as he walked by, and he probably would've thought to himself, "What is wrong with that woman? Is she crazy?" Either that or he would've recognized it as a common reaction to his presence.

  5. You know, usually I go for older men, but I surprised myself and for some reason really reacted to that picture of Baptiste Giabiconi. There is just something there that grabs you (or at least makes you wish it would :D ). It's pretty bad when hormones travel over the internet.

  6. Oh, I can completely relate to Baptiste causing that to happen, lol! There really is something about that picture of him. Out of all the ones I put up for his Weekly Inspiration post, that one was my favorite :-)

  7. What a choice. I don't think I can pick just one out of that lot.

    On a side note - not seen any recent pics of Travis Fimmell, but OMG there is a man who improves with age.

  8. Can I vote for all of them? Each has something that makes me say "him"...

  9. I know, it's so hard to pick! I really put a challenge to everyone, lol! And I totally agree about Travis Fimmel. He was so pretty when he was younger, but he looks amazing with some more maturity on him.


    I totally agree, Sylvie. Each one has a little something special where it's so hard to decide! Maybe if I do this again, I'll try to figure out a way to set the poll where people can have more than one choice ;-)

  10. No fair! It is a tie for me! Jared Koronkiewicz and Travis Fimmel. *sigh* If pressed, I'd say...ugh...three way, me and the two of them. heehee...okay...I'll go vote for Jared and try to make it up to Travis. heehee

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOL! Oh man, those two in a three-way, now that's story worthy! You should write it! You could set it in...I don't, a space world maybe, hee hee! I know, it's really hard to pick between all these guys, but Jared is very yummy. You'll just have to work extra hard to make it up to Travis ;-)

  12. ROFL! Would their fiction names be Rock and Zander maybe? heehee

    I think that is a job I would enjoy. lol

    ReplyDelete
  13. Those names totally work for me, lol! *happy sigh*

  14. I usually go for the long-hairs and Travis is hot but Baptiste Giabiconi just does something wicked to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Holy crap, I just realized that Baptiste Giabiconi would have a French accent. A man that good looking should not be allowed to have an accent. It's a lethal combination. I'm a sucker for a man with any accent - British, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, Australian, you name it, it makes my insides melt. I am not allowed to meet that man in person.

  16. I hadn't actually seen any pictures of Travis recently. I had seen the older ones where he has long hair after Sherrilyn Kenyon posted some of him on her site as the image for one of her characters. He was droolworthy even then.

    I had it narrowed down to Hugh, Jared and Travis, and since the others each have votes I will go with Travis. A guy that gorgeous should never be voteless in a poll like this. ;-)

    Oh, and since I forgot to say who I was before - this is Louisa from Ethan's list.

  17. Here you go, for all the Baptiste fans, a video of him on Youtube where you can hear him talking in French, and see him whip off his shirt and start doing a little work-out :-)

    Oh, and marcieo, I'm a sucker for accents, too!

    Hey, Louisa! Thanks for stopping by! I know, it's a tough choice between all these guys, but you're right, Travis deserves some love ;-)

  18. You are an evil, evil woman. Somewhere around when she was petting his abs I started to drool. I have no idea what he said, and I could care less. And that hair as he was doing pushups, dear god, I think I spooged. *whimper*

    ReplyDelete
  19. LMAO! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I just couldn't resist putting that up ;-) I'm with you, I have no idea what was being said, my French stops at hello, good-bye, and ordering a glass of water, but with how he looks, understanding what he's saying totally isn't needed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Holy hell - he's so young! I thought he was older - kinda feel like a perv now. But when he was humpty-dumpin' the floor... *goes to lie down*

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aww, you don't have to feel that way. He's in his twenties, so by all international laws, it's okay to ogle him ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, it seems Blogger had some colossal screw-up with their poll widget last night, and my blog and several others lost votes on currently running polls. So not happy with Blogger right now >:(

    On the bright side, we didn't lose too many votes on the hot guys, but if anyone wants to try voting again, please feel free :-)

  23. ***drool*** they are all so yummie! But it's gotta be Hugh!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Men in jewelery just...ungh.

    Do I really have to pick just one? Because Gackt or Baptiste...waffles....

    I just can't chose!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I agree, Petchie, they're all yummy! Ah Hugh, he's super sexy *sigh*

    I totally understand that conundrum, Jaime. Gackt, Baptiste...that's a tough call! Though, I did dub Gackt the Supreme God of Hotness here not long ago, lol!

  26. SJ - he left his umbrella on the chair in front of me and left. Being the wonderful person I am (hahaha) I picked it up and brought it to him while he was walking. Nothing would come out of my mouth. Not one stinking word. It was horrible and wonderful at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh man, Nancy, I could faint just hearing your story, lol! I applaud you in being able to walk up to him. As far as saying a word to him, I would've been just as speechless. Probably would've slowly lifted the umbrella to him, held in both hands, like making an offering to a god. It was very nice of you to return it to him ;-)

  28. Ok out of all of them you slip in Hugh Jackman, well since I'm an aussie i'm going for him as my inspiration but if I wasn't an Aussie hmmmmmm....
    Jared Koronkiewicz he has a look thats just oh yum and other things come to mind. lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. I completely understand wanting to stay loyal to your native countryman, especially when that countryman is Hugh Jackman! Oh, but you're so right about Jared. He's got "come hither" all over him, lol!
