Meet the two hot new Grindr Guy winners

Add this share

Not surprisingly, the shirtless gay sex hounds, jocks and other beefcake vying to become the first Grindr Guy spokes model generated a lot of prurient interest. These are the two gay studs who came out on top.

Matthew and Eric drew votes in two rounds and rose as the cream of the crop during a fierce battle of hot guys from across the country, including one repping gay Atlanta. The competition was so stiff, they had to pick two winners. As their reward, photos of each (And both? Together? Our interest is piqued) are coming to a mobile device hookup near you.

Eric Angelo (top photo) is a go-go dancer who calls Hollywood home. Bartender and model Matthew Stehlik landed in Orlando by way of Pittsburgh. They topped some 780 submissions who collected more than 2,500 votes. It was so close, judges couldn’t pick just one. We can see why.

They each won a photo shoot for a new Grindr ad campaign, a three-night stay in a luxury Los Angeles hotel, sexy new duds, and a “coming out” party in their honor.

Yes, you’ll definitely want to investigate Matthew’s revealing Instagram (Maybe when you’re alone) and Eric’s YouTube teases. You can go get yet another eyeful of Matthew, or get all up in his Facebook page. There are lots of photos on Eric’s Facebook as well.

Now, go get to know them and keep an eye out for their ads. But no matter how much they tempt you in their coming features, it’s up to you to remember that you want your Grindr guys more like this and less like that.
