Last week, I put the call out for a little fun and you answered! The results for round one of our 2020 Spring Hunkness Championship are in. There were some close calls, some not-so-close calls, and the surprise upset of our reigning champion, Roger Wakefield, getting knocked out off the bat by that wuthering devil Heathcliff! (Some of us love a bad boy. I get it.) Another surprise? Of the three Little Women hunks in the competition, John Brooke is the only one left standing. (While I’m remaining completely impartial during this competition, I can’t help but be pleased as punch for Mr. Brooke. He’s always been a bit of a third fiddle to the oft-discussed Laurie and Bhaer, so it’s nice to see him get a moment in the sun.)
The deck has been shuffled and the next round of voting is open! Cast your votes for the Elite Eighteen to determine who will make it to the Nifty Nine.
