No cruise would be complete with out an amateur beauty contest and it was time for to select MR LA DEMENCE CRUISE 2011.
Several judges were selected: there was myself from SeenQueen.com, Edgar from Rapido , the promoter of the Gay Village in Rome (a gay women), a representative from La Demence, the promoter of GMF in Berlin and another judge from another gay website (but I can’t seem to remember the name of the web site). What made us valid judges, I don’t know, except perhaps for being well know amongst the cruiser for our respective activities. One ting for sure our tastes varied and the competitors matched that variety.
I knew straight away who was the hottest. I had spotted him/them on the ship earlier and was happy to see them enter. What motivated a contestant to enter was beyond me…ego? Win a prize? Gay social status? The prizes were quite good…a weekedn in Brussels and at La Demence, a trip to Gran Canaria and a trip to Gran Canaria (in that order for winner, runner-up and third).
It would be unfair to say all the contestants were equal; but the variety made it interesting, if not obvious who lead the pack. Some may have entered because they were hot, other because they thought they were hot, others for fun and those who may have hope to win on novelty value. Whatever thier personal reason, it was our task to pick a winner to become Mr Gay La Demence Cruise.
There were three categories the contestants had to compete in. The first was casual wear (were your own clothes), the second was underwear/jock or swimmers and the third, well, it gave an opportunity for the ‘novelty’ hopefuls to win some points. It involved plastic, toilet paper, hula hoops, a t’shirt, balloons, a hat and whatever else the contestant could dig up.
I won’t tell you how we voted and for who, but I will tell you that we voted like a Eurovision contest where the winner got 12 points, the runner-up 10 and the third choice 8. There were no other scores. Despite early favourites based on appearance, the personality of the contestant altered things. One judge gave no votes to one of the top 3 at all, instead allocating to one of the very confident and sexy twinks. The variation in judges helped spread the votes across a variety of contestants. Needless to say my favourite three came in as expected…after all, no matter you disguise it…hot is hot and this was a beauty contest.
Any of the top 3 could have been Mr Gay La Demence Cruise. Below the gallery are the three winners in order.
AND THE WINNERS ARE:
