SENATOR BROWN, MOVE OVER: I just heard word that Cosmo magazine is on the hunt for the hottest single guys in the U.S. for their annual Bachelor Contest. Cosmo is picking one from every state—and the magazine needs your help finding them! You can nominate eligible men to be the Oregon 2010 Bachelor. The guys will be featured in the November issue and will be invited to attend exclusive Cosmo events.
So what’s in it for the men? Besides giving Cosmo readers amazing eye candy, one lucky guy will be crowned Bachelor of the Year, winning $10,000 and a wardrobe from Express. For several of the previous bachelors, appearing in Cosmo was just the start of their fame. Many have gone on to other exciting projects, like starring on ABC’s The Bachelor (Andy Baldwin, California, 2005), hosting VH1’s Tough Love (Steven Ward, Pennsylvania, 2003), and playing in this year’s Superbowl (Jabari Greer, Tennessee, 2007).
To nominate a deserving single guy, go to www.cosmopolitan.com/bachelors and print out an official entry form. You’ll need to provide the following information:
* Your name, e-mail, phone number, address, and relationship to the bachelor. (Sorry, he can’t be your boyfriend—he has to be single!).
* Bachelor’s name, e-mail, age, height, weight, profession, state of residence, and address. (College and graduate students may represent their hometown state or the state where they attend school. All other nominees must represent the state where they reside 9 months out of the year.)
* Two color photos of the nominee. (One head and shoulders; one shirtless, full-body shot).
* An explanation of why he should be Cosmo’s Bachelor of the Year (250 words or less).
Drop off the entry form, with photos attached, at your local Express or Express Men store, or mail his photo and info to: Cosmo Bachelors, 300 W. 57th St., 38th Fl., New York, NY 10019.
Deadline for entries is April 11. To see entry rules, see page 235 of the March 2010 issue or visit www.cosmopolitan.com/bachelors.
