Is My Weatherman Hotter Than Your Weatherman?

The other night I was on Facebook and noticed that a girl I know had joined “Absolut Sven” a fan group dedicated to a Minnesota TV personality. I decided I had to give her some major grief.

Why? Because as anyone who lives within the viewing area probably knows, Sven is the weekend weatherman for the Minneapolis NBC station. He has a good on-air persona, is a local boy, educated in our state university system and seems generally good at his job. He’s also young, athletic, and not bad looking—albeit about four feet tall and fake-baked beyond need, not unlike said station’s former anchor. Women love him, and they play up his sex appeal…including showing shirtless photographs of him running marathons during newscasts. One problem for the ladies, though--although it has never been expressly said , he likes gentlemen.

So, when I saw that this gal, the same one who had accused me and Apple Guy of “dating” apparently had the hots for this guy, I knew it was time to give her a little crap in return.

Upon looking around Facebook I discovered there were lots of groups dedicated to this guy. He’s being called everything from a “Weather God” to a “hobbit” and there’s even a group of people who claim he ran away from them at a local gay bar—apparently he enjoys hooking up with guys from the bar, but he must be a player with high standards.

Anyway, I think it is another funny example of women swooning over unattainable (GAY) men.

By the way, he blogs and there are plenty of pictures.

Haha, yeah. That is pretty funny. Still, I swoon over unattainable men too...

Survey Answer: Yes, your weatherman is hotter than my weatherman. (even if its the weatherman from back home. but he does have a doctorate. and you can't live in Houston and not know his name.)

I always jump for unattainable men. I am amazed you have not admitted that, yet.

Answer: Your weatherman is more photogenic, but he seem's too much of a bronzer for my taste. He's still hotter, I assume but here's two weathermen from my hometowns of...

Miami

Orlando

You should have a survery for News Anchors next time.

Ok, our weathermen are all old over here. I wish I had your guy, I might actually watch the local news a bit more. I love the shirtless pics on his blog!

Hmm, there is one local weather guy here that may give Sven a run for his money.

After careful review, I think the Hobbit description is the most accurate.

Pete said...

Hobbit would indeed be the word. He reminds me of someone annoying...

But he is hotter than mine... http://www.wageningenuniversiteit.nl/NR/rdonlyres/0CC61490-A6EC-43CD-AA95-DEFFA760E766/26450/hiemstra1.jpg

He used to be up in Duluth, MN and lots of guys always thought he (Sven) was hot!

He was good with the weather forecasts!

Here's a link about him.
