We’re going to make it a little more interesting for the final round. For this one, you can vote as many times as you want. Go crazy.

And because it’s a holiday weekend here in the US, voting will be open until 11:59pm Eastern time on Monday, May 28th. Vote early, vote often!

We’re down to the wire here in the Hot Dead Guy Sweet 16 Tournament… I suspect many will be shocked and/or saddened to learn that Rupert Brooke will not be vying for the title of Hottest Dead Guy. And I’m sad about Yeats, but let’s face it, Gary Cooper is a tough guy to beat.


Here’s how the voting went—PollDaddy is acting up again so you may have to click to see the results. The Cooper/McKennon Throwdown will be taking place shortly.


So we have two epic matchups here.

Polls will be open until May 22th, at 11:59pm Eastern time.


Robert Cornelius was knocked out of the running in the quarterfinals. How could this happen? Sure, Rupert Brooke was a handsome fella, sure, but more handsomer than Robert Cornelius, the dreamiest dreamboat ever? HOW COULD THIS BE??

Even Mr. Weebles said, “Well, the other guy was pretty good looking.” Et tu, Mr. Weebles?

Look at this face. LOOK AT IT:

How much more dreamy could a man be? The answer is none. None more dreamy.

Below are the matchups for the semifinals. Sigh. I’m going to take a short recess before opening up the polls, because I need time to find an appropriate Victorian mourning gown and a veil.

Thanks to all who voted in the preliminary round of the Hot Dead Guy Sweet 16 Tournament. The results are in!

Some of the races were closer than I expected, with only two real landslides. Please click here to see the final tallies. (NOTE: PollDaddy is misbehaving so my apologies if the results aren’t readily visible.)

I’m sorry to have to say farewell to Lord Nelson and Messrs. Mallory, Donne, Mitchell, de Valera, Lister, and Throckmorton. It especially pains me to see the Duke of Wellington go because I was really rooting for him. But obviously Gary Cooper is an even more formidable opponent than Napoleon. And the games must go on.

Polls will be open until 11:59 tomorrow night. This is sure to be one of the most exciting Hot Dead Guy Quarterfinals EVER!




We’ve seen 16 historical hunks so far. So let’s make things more interesting, shall we?

I was never interested in March Madness but these are the kind of brackets I can get excited about:

There are eight choices below. Photos of all 16 gentlemen can be found just under the poll. Select which historical hotties you’d like to see advance to the next round. Voting is open until 11:59pm Eastern time on Sunday, May 13th, and results will be posted as soon as possible.









And to refresh your memory about our contestants, here are their photos again for your convenience and consideration:
