People Magazine recently named Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as 2016's 'Sexiest Man Alive'. Sure, sure - great choice! Looks. Muscles. Good actor. Charitable. Seems like a nice enough guy! Congrats! But, we know that there are awesome men right here in KC who could earn that title in their own right!
So, we asked and boy did you reply! We received hundreds of entries. Ladies, you loved to brag about your man and we loved reading your stories! We know that 'sexy' goes beyond appearance. It has everything to do with heart, kindness, respect and personality. There sure are some lucky ladies out there with good men... we thank you for sharing with us!
We were supposed to narrow it down to one winner. Well, that was nearly impossible. So, we said... what the heck. We picked FIVE! Congratulations... each couple has won a fabulous date night package from sheKC -- a night on the Country Club Plaza! We'll email you with the details. ENJOY! And enjoy each other. In this crazy world, we've gotta hang on to LOVE.
Jessica + Scot
My husband's name is Scot. He is by far the sexiest man alive to me! Scot is always giving me new reasons to fall in love with him all over again. He has a love for animals. Together, we have rescued five dogs and two cats. We are also a 'Big Couple' with Big Brothers Big Sisters and are becoming licensed foster parents. Both of which wouldn't be possible of Scot didn't share my compassion for children in need. I'm convinced his heart gets bigger every day.
In addition to just being an all around 'nice guy', Scot is my best friend and biggest supporter. He's seen me along my five-year journey of starting my own business and has supported me constantly. His friends would mention how fun he is and that is very true! He is always the life of any party and can make anyone feel welcome.
Sometimes I don't know how I got so lucky to end up with him. But, I am thankful every single day that I did.
Jill + Eric
My husband Eric is really too amazing to describe in words. I always knew when I was in the 'dating world' that I would only settle down with someone who would be an amazing father. I got that and SO much more.
Eric was raised by his Grandma, never knowing his biological father. He'd never really been around kids before. He told me he never considered being a husband or a dad. That said, he is one of the most family oriented, loving, selfless, amazing fathers I have ever seen. One of the sexiest things on Earth is a great dad!
I feel like the luckiest girl alive. I still get butterflies on the rare occasion we get a date night. He still holds the door for me after ten years, tells me he loves me in front of his friends and has never once left the toilet seat up :) He tells me I'm beautiful on days I know I'm not. All of that adds up to awesomely sexy in my book!
Jacki + Jason
I am submitting my husband, Jason Davis, for KC's Sexiest Man! We have been married for 12-1/2 years and not a day goes by that I don't thank God for bringing this man into my life.
He is caring, considerate, compassionate, patient, loving, devoted to his family and devoted to his country. He spent almost 22 years in the Army and finally retired May 2015 as a Captain in the Army Reserve. He works day in and day out to provide for our family. I still look at him with the same butterflies I did when we first met. The way he treats me and our daughter is beyond immeasurable!
I definitely have my crazy moments and he has constant understanding of my fits and my need for 'me time'. He is so patient with our daughter and shows her the 'not-so-girly' things about growing up while at the same time showing her how important it is for a man to treat a woman and that she deserves respect.
I can't express the gratitude my heart feels that this guy is all MINE! He has my heart til the end of time.
Jessica + Jeff
My husband is so special because he has such a big heart. Jeff is a local firefighter and loves helping his community. He is not a firefighter for the money or notoriety that sometimes may come with the job. He's in it for the many people he helps on a daily basis. After working many years to get where he is today, he deserves it.
Recently, Jeff and I brought a baby girl into the world. He is truly a blessing and such a wonderful dad to our newborn daughter, Avery. I can only hope that she has half the heart for life, career and family that Jeff has. If only there were more people in the world like him -- maybe there wouldn't be so much hate.
One day I will have to explain to our little girl why her daddy is gone so often. Even though she may not always understand, she will know that her daddy loves helping others and we couldn't be more proud of him.
Tiffany + Jason
I nominate my husband, Jeff for sheKC's Sexiest Man! He has been a Kindergarten teacher for 13 years. All of his past students tell me how funny he is and everyone in the school knows his 'thumb trick' (the trick where he 'pulls off' the end of his thumb to distract an upset kiddo -- works every time!)
He is a wonderful husband and father. He takes our kids to and from school, cooks dinner most nights and does more than his fair share of household chores. That allows me to work 45 minutes from home at a job I love. Jeff is also a former college golfer and takes time to instill this athleticism into our kiddos.
He is my dream come true.
