Meet the very sexy Mr. Gay Europe 2017

Candidates from all over Europe donned their finest briefs in the name of strengthening bonds in the LGBTQ community by… being very hot, indeed.

They were judged on their intellect, confidence, awareness, self-esteem, attractiveness, and overall charisma.

But there could only be one winner, and his name is Matt Rood of England, a 37-year-old trainer and dog walker.

“The experience is something I will always take away with me and remember,” he said.

And now without further ado, here’s a deep dive into all things Rood — a Rood awakening, if you will:

Had a great time working with the amazing @manelortega tonight ?

  • Captain Obvious

    Honestly didn’t see the big deal till I got further down and saw those sheer briefs.

    • Smith David

      I was so sure it would be Germany. But, good for him. It’s not easy to stay in such great shape. I’m happy for him;)

  • Rex Huskey

    the hair needs help and way too bad he’s cut….Damn it!

  • JerseyMike

    I am wondering if there was a talent competition or if it was based on personality… I see way better-looking guys (young and older) than him at the gym…

      I think you’ll find the criteria at the top of the Queerty article. Mr Europe is not a twink meat market.

  • Mike999

    Pretty geeky, guys. Hundreds of men walking around LA much hotter.

    • PinkoOfTheGange

      Well they are in LA, which is on the North American continent, and none of them had the guts to move and enter.

    • Kangol

      There’s more beauty on one street in Barcelona, Rome or Paris than this one could offer on his best day. Maybe the judges forgot what the criteria were.

  • BriBri

    He doesn’t fluff my skirt, he’s barely ordinary.

  • Brian

    He looks a little dead behind the eyes…

  • PinkoOfTheGange

    How many of you look that good now let alone at 37?

    He can walk my dog; dog likes early morning workouts. My ridgeback can go run the fence line during that time, alone, like he does every morning.

    • Jack Meoff

      I have to laugh at the way you say ‘let alone at 37’ like that’s old. I’m guessing you are still in your 20’s.

  • Alan down in Florida

    If that’s the best Europe has to offer I think I’ll stay home and purchase what the boys from local south Florida have to offer.

  • Kangol

    Europe, you can do better. Much, much, MUCH better.

  • bluebirdwales

    Why all these nasty comments? Give the guy a break. He might not be everyone’s cup of tea but he’s got a great body and I bet he’s hotter than 90% of the bitter people writing these bitchy remarks!
