HUNKY Craig Stevenson from Frodsham is down to the final eight in a competition to find the World’s Manliest Man.
Craig is the only person representing Cheshire and one of only two finalists representing the north of the UK in the national contest.
But he needs your help if he is to progress any further as the competition is now subject to a public vote which closes on September 12.
The promotion has been launched by shaving brand, The Bluebeards Revenge, in response to the release of pictures of the World’s Most Masculine Man – a combination of George Clooney’s hair, Gerard Butler’s eyes, Brad Pitt’s nose, Jason Statham’s jawline and Daniel Craig’s body.
The company now wants to find the British man who looked most like this photo fit, to become the new “Face Of” its brand.
Hundreds applied but, after much deliberation, eight ruggedly handsome suitors were shortlisted, including Craig, 37, a media executive from Frodsham.
He said: “I’m just a regular guy from Cheshire, and I couldn’t believe it when I got the call from the Bluebeards Revenge people saying I was shortlisted to the final of this competition. However, I love a challenge and so went along to the photo shoot and had a really good time.
“I was really nervous on the drive to the shoot, as I hadn’t really done anything like this before, but the other seven finalists were all great guys too, and we all helped each other through it.
“One of the things that attracted me to the brand was that they give away a donation to firefighter charities from every tub of The Bluebeards Revenge sold.
“Having seen how genuinely heroic the guys at the Cheshire Fire Service are, it’d be great to help raise funds for them when they get injured while saving lives.”
