Here at Geeks are Sexy, we are hardly shy about the Sexy. Maxim has made its name and brand synonymous with the concept and this year’s Hot 100 list has been announced. Who is on that list is up for debate – some I like, some I don’t. You can check out the results at Maxim.
Now this story isn’t just about sharing the “Hot 100″. Among this list are some interesting stories of note that surpass even the celebration of attractive women.
This starts first with Stephen Colbert. Since this list was open to online voting – which includes an optional write-in for candidates not on the voting list, Colbert orchestrated a coup. And despite his lack of qualifications (being a man) he found himself Number #69 out of 100.
But this is the part I wanted to share. There was another coup by the fans of an online “celebrity”, and it started with a YouTube Channel called SourceFed, which among its many hosts has an adorable and crazy hot geek named Lee Newton.
Maxim had to change their voting process to include a captcha security feature because they thought this tidal wave of Lee Newton write-in votes were some sort of scam, but they did concede that Ms Newton did have qualities that are “list potential”.
Today the SourceFed guys announced that Lee made the list at a staggering #57 beating out (obviously) 43 other candidates!
It was very cool to see Lee wearing her homemade “I’ve got List Potential” t-shirt with the Potential part crossed out. Now she’s got List.
Congrats Lee! Well deserved! Aside from being ridiculously attractive, she is a first class Geek and two thirds the reason I watch SourceFed’s show every day!
This is just more proof that GEEKS ARE SEXY!
