The 2009 Nerdy Nom-noms are open!

For those of you not on Twitter (n00bs) I have a surprise! I was halfway through a post of my personal 2009 Hotties yesterday when a comment or ten came through from the nerd boys suggesting they be included, then the girls jumped on the bandwagon too! Not mentioning any names or anything though, it did plant a little seed in my head; I have decided to run an online hotness pageant! Please say hello to The Sexiest Nerdies 2009 Awards, aka The Nerdies (play on the word ‘Nudies’ – I’m so bloody witty, really).

How it will work:

You (yes, you) will nominate your online hottie of choice by using means of my Twitter stream, email or comment right here on this very post. I want names and links of your nominees, people. I will blog the entire process and let you in on who’s who after I’ve fully investigated their backgrounds, DNA samples, swimwear modeling & abilities to stand out.

The Nerdy Nom-noms:

You can nominate as many Nerdies as you like, for whichever reason you like. I will then narrow the Nom-noms down to categories and then finals. Nominations have come from the guys mostly, so girls stop being so bloody shy already!

The Rules & Regs:

The nominees must either be South African, or reside in South Africa
The nominees must have an online presence, be it a blog, a twitter account or even just an owner of an online company.
The nominees should be nominated for their personalities more than anything else, this is onlinedom okes, shallowness is null and void here. Or so they say.
The judge’s decision is final. Unless you come up with good bribery or sexual favours second to none. I like chocolates. I’m just saying. Steve is the male judge. He likes head-banging music. And fluffy bunnies.

Right. Any questions needing to be asked may be done so here.

    I am a supernerd, but a lack of sexiness may disqualify me. So I will have to vote for cow_grrl (spelling) cos she is hot!

    Urm, damn, didnt realise you need to be nominated πŸ™ Does having a facebook account (and being permanently logged into it) count as online presence ??

    Then, I do vote for Jeremy Nell, he is worthy competition to me (should i get nominated … he says while already changing the comment details)

    They’re both shit hot, funny, intelligent and forthright. But mostly because I bet neither of them wears a Speedo, and yes, I want to see them stand out. Ahem.

    The guy nom nom’s were easy. Da girls, not so much:
    Mrs Tex Benitez, even though she’s not playing no more;
    Jean Pant
    Max Kaizen

  15. Stew says:

    I’m kind of pissed that nobody has taken up the bacon banner here. This contest involves NOMing after all… SOMEBODY second my nomination for bacon puh-lease~

    There is nothing, and I do mean NOTHING more sexy than bacon (in a bikini)

  16. geekrebel says:

    Thanks for the nomination Tertia! All this buzz and I only find out now. (2AM, Thu) If I had known about this earlier, I would have sent in some sexy action pictures of myself for e.g. writing some SQL queries or some such.

    I’d go for cow_grrrl…should I still give a reason why, “don’t think so, you do the math”, cause she left me speechless.
