No, I'm not shallow. This is really important. I need to know who's gonna win Best Guy In the World when put against so many good options. So, I'm gonna list the categories and competitors today. You have have time to give input, make cases for other guys etc. but the real battle begins....next time I feel like posting. So seriously, give me lots of input.

Ha, funny that your first three comments are from Marie Becky and me. But you're right, this is very important stuff! I'll just vote on a few: Shawn Spencer (much more amusing), Gene Kelly (come on, can't beat Moses supposes), James Marsden, Mr. Bingley, Steve Young, Stewart of course, Guy Patterson, Gilbert Blythe, Nathan Steed (although I do love Jack), Michael Buble, and Dimitri.

Uh, clearly I get an "F" in pop culture.

But I am glad you didn't put Mr. Knightly up against Mr. Darcy. Who can vote on that? So for that one the answer is clearly Knightly.

And Harry Potter.

And Zack Morris (I used to be up on pop culture).

And Steve Young.

I think that's all.

Also, does Aaron Eckhart really count as a Mormon star anymore?
