Herald-Mail to announce winner of Hottest Man contest

December 17, 2009|By TIFFANY ARNOLD

The search for the hottest man in Hagerstown ends Monday night.

The Herald-Mail is hosting an event at Bulls & Bears Restaurant downtown to conclude its Hagerstown's Hottest Man contest, devised after Hub City was ranked No. 2 in the nation by for cities with the ugliest men.

During the event, the public will decide by $1 votes who will be named Hagerstown's Hottest Man from among the top 10 entrants, culled from the nearly 200 photos submitted to since the contest began in November.

Proceeds from the contest will be donated to the Community Free Clinic of Washington County, which provides health care services to people who can't afford it.


Herald-Mail digital director Liz Thompson said the Community Clinic will receive a $400 check during the event. Thompson said the clinic will also receive money from Monday's votes.

Earlier this year, the women's Web site ranked Hub City No. 2 in the nation for cities with the ugliest men. El Paso, Texas, topped the list.

The Herald-Mail fired back with this contest as a chance to show just how hot Hagerstown men are. Hub City's "hotties" responded to The Herald-Mail's call for entries - 197 photos were posted.

Voting closed late Wednesday.

The contest's finalists were determined by the online votes and by a panel of Herald-Mail judges.

The winner will receive an overnight stay at Hagerstown Hotel and Convention Center and the title of Hagerstown's Hottest Man.

Other prizes for runners up were provided by South Mountain Day Spa, M&S Harley Davidson, Bulls & Bears Restaurant, South Pointe Fitness Club and Bella Salon & Spa.
