By the way, following up on my post, "The Bachelor, Bamboo Nation Style," my dear readers have chosen this hot bachelor (with 37% of the vote, as of this writing) to be my Iowa mate (I need one in every state!):
Of course you all chose the guy who was the most naked. Dirty pervs!
But now that we're talking about Vermont, I did some research online to see what that state has to offer, and Cosmopolitan insists that this dude is Vermont's hottest bachelor:
Um...I'll take two please!
Here's his profile. Seriously:
In the words of the female friend who nominated him: "Chris has huge charm and an unforgettable smile."
Three must-haves: "Cars, motorcycles, and airplanes"
Family guy: "A friend once told me that I'd be a good father. That meant a lot."
Fave female body part: "Her butt."
Ideal first date: "Going for a ride on my motorcycle. The faster I go, the tighter she hangs on."
His sweet spots: "My nipples"
Hottest girl getup: "Black lingerie"
What confuses him about women: "Why girls tend to gossip and spend so much time talking about other people!"
Can a guy and a girl just be friends? "Only if they're both in relationships!"
I would like to get to know his "huge charm."
