the best known gay print media sources are still doing quite well. For that, there's nothing better known than Têtu. It's best translated into English as meaning headstrong or stubborn. I have the feeling the magazine was named as it was for two reasons. First, it implies that the LGBT community is not going away. We're stubborn like that. So you have no option but to accept us. Also, it implies that as a community, we will not be quiet.
So every year, Têtu puts out a list of the Hottest guys on TV. Number one for this year was Julien Tellouck, the host of the JT (journal-televisé) on Game One. Game One is the gaming station in France. I can definitely see why they would choose him, I mean, look at him.
Oh Julien, comme tu est beau!
Seriously. Olivier Minne. Hot damn.
I like François-Xavier Menage but there are far more complicated reasons for that. Don't judge me too harshly, he's Breton. There are quite a few other guys that are on this list, Julien Mielcarek for example, who I think look like they're fifteen. Then again, this is definitely a difference of taste.
However; even Têtu was even a bit surprised by the fact that Ali Baddou didn't make the list. Yes, I know that he's more of a serious news person, but technically all these people are trying to be professionals. And quite simply, if you're on French TV, you're going to be judged based on how you look. Technically, he's only on Canal+, and I would say that was the requirement if it weren't for the fact that lots of these people are on Canalsat. A lot of these guys are on TNT, what we would call Network television in the US.
Ali Baddou can do no wrong!
I'll leave you to check out the list. Of the guys you have on the list, who would you pick for your top 3? Are there guys I'm missing? How about if you were to make your list of American Newscasters and Television Presenters? Thoughts?
