The race for this year’s CLEO Bachelor of the Year title is hotting up as CLEO unearths Australia’s most charismatic, ambitious, good-looking, eligible single men in the world-famous CLEO Bachelor of the Year for 2009.
The nominees for the 2009 CLEO Bachelor of the Year are now available for Australian women to vote for with the 50 finalists appearing in the April issue of CLEO on sale this week.
Daimon Downey from Sneaky Sound System is among the nominees for this year’s competition. Daimon is up against singer Axle Whitehead, actors Damian Walshe-Howling from Nine Network drama Underbelly, Angus McLaren from the Seven Network’s Packed To The Rafters, and Home & Away’s Luke Jacobz and Todd Lasance.
Channel [V] presenter Danny Clayton, So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Nacho Pop and Bondi Rescue lifeguard Tom Bunting joins the list, as does Seven TV presenter Ben Damon.
Sporting stars include NRL players Joel Clinton and Ben Te’o from the Brisbane Broncos, Carlton AFL footballer Chris Johnson, Sydney Swans’ Matthew Laidlaw, and rising Queensland cricketer Scott Brant.
CLEO editor-in-chief Sarah Oakes says: “Each year brings so many interesting men from around the country. It was a tough job sorting through the hundreds of applications and it’s going to be even tougher finding our winner this year. We have an eclectic list of nominees with a variety of backgrounds and occupations.”
Last year’s winner Jason Dundas won the hearts of many female fans around the country … but who will score his enviable position in 2009?
