Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Lust Bracket.

We’ve made it to the final bracket in Round 2 of Hottie Madness 2014 – the Lust bracket. Lots of upsets in Round 1 which resulted in a very long rant courtesy of my best friend. See notes below. Just a reminder to all, I CAN’T control the fans and I’m sorry if your faves don’t get through! Some of mine have not moved on and believe me, no one is more pissed off about that than I am! But all of these guys have made it on the blog this past year, so they all deserve to be in the tourney. Not to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to put the hotties on a more level playing field.

Voting for this bracket ends Saturday, March 29th. There is still time to vote in Round 2 of the Crush and Drool brackets, which have some very close races. Don’t forget to tag any social posts with #HottieMadness2014!

Vote Now! Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Lust Bracket. Hugh Jackman vs Ryan Reynolds. #hottiemadness2014  #hughjackman #ryanreynolds #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Hugh Jackman vs (9) Ryan Reynolds
I feel like it’s no surprise that top seed Hugh Jackman beat out Damian Lewis with 80% of the vote. Ryan Reynolds, however, staged a small upset over Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey with a narrow 52% victory. (Friend Rant #1.) And now we have Wolverine vs Green Lantern. Aussie vs Canadian. Both with seriously hot bods (why am I not showing more skin???) and lots of charm.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Drool Bracket.

After a relatively drama-free Round 1 (except one country-themed upset), we’ve made it to Round 2 of the Drool bracket in Hottie Madness 2014. Not to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to put the hotties on a more level playing field.

Vote Now! Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Drool Bracket. Henry Cavill vs Ian Somerhalder. #hottiemadness2014  #henrycavill #iansomerhalder #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Henry Cavill vs (8) Ian Somerhalder
The biggest win of the tourney so far was Henry Cavill over Alan Ritchson, with 92% of the vote. But Ian’s victory over Jimmy Fallon (77%) was just as impressive. This is a tough choice between two supernatural hotties. Superman vs vampire. Sexy chiseled cheekbones vs THE SMOLDER. They both have hot bods, so that’s no help. I don’t envy anyone who has to make this choice, including myself.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Crush Bracket.

After a few upsets, two very intense battles and one really close call in Round 1, we’ve made it to Round 2 of the Crush bracket in Hottie Madness 2014.

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (9) Richard Madden
Top seed Justin Timberlake beat out Chiwetel Ejiofor (who was great in 12 Years a Slave, which I finally watched this weekend), with 75% of the vote. And Richard had a small upset over Justin Theroux with 76%. But can Robb Stark claim the Iron Throne of hotness from JT? (Can you tell I’m missing Game of Thrones?)

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (9) Mark Wahlberg
Top seed Charlie beat out Jim Parsons with 70% of the vote, and Mark had a narrow (53%) last minute victory of Josh Holloway. And now it’s a battle of who’s more badass. Charlie as Jax on Sons of Anarchy? Or Mark as…himself?

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Lust Bracket. Hugh Jackman vs Damian Lewis. #hottiemadness2014  #hughjackman #damianlewis #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Hugh Jackman vs (16) Damian Lewis
It has to be hard to find someone who doesn’t like Hugh Jackman. He’s everyone’s fave Aussie! He can sing and dance and has that effortless charm. Unfortunately for Damian, he plays (well, played) such a polarizing character, that he might not be as well-liked. But let’s get over the fact that he’s not really a terrorist and just focus on his face.

(1) Henry Cavill vs (16) Alan Ritchson
I think Henry is the hottest guy on the planet. Seriously. So hot. I can’t stop looking at him. But when I put these pics side by side, Alan kinda gives him a run for his money. Kinda…

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Crush Bracket. Justin Timberlake vs Chiwetel Ejiofor. #hottiemadness2014 #jt #justintimberlake #chiwetelejiorfor #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (16) Chiwetel Ejiofor
JT has become a bit of a renaissance man, and one of the best SNL hosts/Jimmy Fallon guests ever, but to me he will always be known as the man who brought sexy back. And Chiwetel has made quite a name for himself this year, with his Oscar nom for 12 Years A Slave. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of his face. Just saying…

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Swoon Bracket.

Time to vote for your most swoon-worthy hotties in Round 1 of Hottie Madness 2014! First up, the Swoon bracket. I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. I also did my best to choose recent photos of each hottie. Gotta keep things real.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Swoon Bracket. Charlie Hunnam vs Jim Parsons. #hottiemadness2014 #jimparsons #charliehunnam #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (16) Jim Parsons
Charlie’s post was the most shared of all the hotties this year, and I’m sure that had a little something to do with his winning, and then ditching, the role of Christian in the 50 Shades movie. But, he’s still super hot, and as much as I liked him for Christian, I think Jamie was a good pick. (He’s in the Drool bracket.) His competition is one of my fave nerds on TV, Sheldon Cooper Jim Parsons. I seriously love Jim, and it seems like everyone else does, too, with his three Emmy wins. And you know, nerdy sexy is just as hot as sexy sexy.

Booksessed: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. (Plus a character interview with Ridge!)

Colleen Hoover is my number one favorite author, and I have read and have loved each and every one of her books. And Maybe Someday, which released today, is no exception. It was an amazing book and, something that seems difficult these days, it was unique. It’s not the usual boy-saves-girl or girl-saves-boy story because they both save each other.

Booksessed: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. #colleenhoover #maybesomeday #booksessed #goodreads #girlyobsessions

Compared to my other reviews, I am keeping this review quite short and simple. That’s because I’ve been working on something special for all of you! Colleen Hoover was gracious enough to work with us, and through her I’ve been talking to our leading man, Ridge, for an exclusive interview for Girly Obsessions readers. But first, let’s take a look at the official synopsis of Maybe Someday:

At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

Hottie Madness 2014!

It’s officially hottie season! I’m thrilled to announce Hottie Madness 2014! Voting for the third annual tournament of hotties starts tomorrow, March 18th. Last year was a huge success, with over 13,000 votes cast in the final round alone, resulting in a victorious David Gandy. And let’s not forget the original hottie, Ryan Gosling, who was the winner in 2012. Who do think will be this year’s Official Hottie? 

If you’re new to the tournament, Hottie Madness is modeled after the NCAA March Madness tourney, but this bracket is way more fun to fill out! 64 hotties. Sorted and seeded. And ready to be judged by you over the next four weeks.

Hottie Madness 2014. March 18– April 7. Vote for your fave hotties of the year! #hottiemadness2014 #hottiemadness #girlyobsessions

Here’s how it works. I made a list of all the men featured in Eye Candy posts this year. I was actually short by about six hotties, so I augmented with some of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. The hotties were divided into four brackets using random.org, and then seeded by the amount of shares on their posts (and a little bit of personal opinion). This year, the bracket names are based on the four words I think I use way too often: Swoon, Crush, Drool and Lust.
