But let's stick with the guys, for now. One of them is 25-year-old Chris Drish from Chicago. According to Examiner.com, Chris is an account coordinator at Paragon Marketing Group, which focuses on the entertainment and sports marketing industry. He went to school at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The site also claims Drish was a starting right-handed pitcher for the Illini back in his college days. Hey, it worked for Roberto Martinez!
The other guy, Ryan "Mickey" McLean, was voted Cosmo's Hottest Bachelor for 2010. Speaking of yum. Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a hottie!
Steve helpfully includes links to background on Mickey, including this Q&A with the Cleveland chef (he cooks!) and this story announcing him as the Bachelor of the Year. There are photos of Mickey at both links. You’ll want to stare.
"McLean's Facebook page sheds some light. A native of Rochester, NY, he's a Yankees fan. After cooking, he cites hiking, weight-lifting, running, Jet-Skiing and snow-skiing among his favorite activities. The Grateful Dead is the first band named among his favorite musicians. Favorite movie? Goodfellas."
The people he works with gush about him in the story, but the Yankees thing may be an issue. Ashley is from Maine, which is in New England, which is part of Red Sox Nation. We'll have to see if hot trumps hometown.
