Who are the sexiest reality TV stars of 2006?

Last year, for the first time, reality blurred published a list of the sexiest reality stars of 2005. Unlike nearly everything here, those judgments were not made by me alone, but instead by you. And by organized campaigns of crazy, illiterate Constantine Maroulis fans.

Nominations are now open for you (and all of your message board friends) to nominate the sexiest or hottest reality TV show cast members from this past year. Once again, one randomly voter will receive these calendars, The 2007 Sexiest Men and Women of Reality TV Calendars, which make great presents and are suitable for whatever dirty things you’d like to do with them.

There are only two rules: The nominees must have actually been on a reality show that aired during part or all of 2006, and you may only cast one ballot, which includes a maximum of two votes, one for a guy and one for a girl. (Ironic votes are welcome.) It’s important to note that Constantine won last year in large part due to a quasi-organized campaign (Janelle was just so crazy popular she didn’t need ballot stuffing). But that’s perfectly acceptable, as long as every person sends one vote. Duplicates and/or incomplete ballots will be deleted.

To vote, send me an e.mail message with “sexiest star contest” in the subject line, and include all of the following information:

  1. The name and show of one female nominee.
  2. The name and show of one male nominee.
  3. Any horny or bitchy comments you’d like to make about your nominees, which may be published, attributed to your first name and last initial.
  4. Your real name and a working e.mail address (required only if you want to be considered for the contest).

Entries must be received by this Friday, December 15, at 11:59 p.m. ET. As always, all decisions made by me are final and often arbitrary. If you win, the calendar will be mailed to you, but you’re responsible for taxes, a thumbtack to attach it to your wall, et cetera. Start voting now.
