The Road from HOT to HOTTER...

It is one of those things that seems like it was started forever ago, and yet, it feels like just yesterday that it all began.  It started as a lark - would you play along? want to play along? And if you did play along, would you be willing to search for unique style, flair and good looks?  The answer, as it turns out, is "yes."

You nominated 41 of Broadway's greatest talents - I couldn't leave out one Newsie!  Could I?  I asked for unique "hotness" and you proved that there is something for everyone out there - from boyish youngsters to coy leading man types to even a few "silver foxes."  You voted them down to a "Sweet 16," then an "Elite 8," and a "Final 4."  Literally thousands of votes and now 30 "elections" later, you narrowed the field down to just two.

And so, the very first "HOT/HOTTER" tournament has come to an end.  The winner will be revealed on Sunday!

Until then, here's a review of the winners (and they ALL are) from #41 to #3!
