Monday Musings-Looking for Hero Material. Donnell Bell, the challenge is on!

Posted at Jul 8, 2013 3:00 am in , , ,

For those of you unfamiliar with the ongoing Man Wars on Facebook, it’s a fun thing where three authors, Avery Flynn, Kimberly Kincaid, and Robin Covington try to one up each other by posting pictures of handsome men on Facebook. I believe, and this is just a guess, Avery Fynn might have started the war.

Up until now, I’ve stayed out of them, opting to stay on the sideline and enjoy the pictures of gorgeous hunks. But a challenge issued by Donnell Bell has called me to action. :)

I’ve posted her challenge below for you to read:

“All right. Closed group in Session. I cannot believe Jerrie Alexander thinks there’s a better looking guy than my Viagra Firestarter/Tent Erector :) She thinks Bailey Chase, the character in Longmire running against Walt (the fantastic Robert Taylor who might give my Viagra Firestarter/Tent Erector a run for his money) is cuter than my VFTE guy. What say you?”

Now I ask you, what kind of person would I be if I didn’t accept the challenge?  

What do you think? Have you seen the Viagra commercial featuring the handsome guy building a fire next to a tent? I have to admit he’s rugged and hot, especially when he uses his brain to solve his problem with the fire.

Have you watched Longmire and laid eyes on deputy Branch Connally played by Bailey Chase?

I searched the Internet for a picture of Firestarter guy and couldn’t find one, making it unfair to ask you to vote for which one should win our first ever Hero Material search. Which means this will be an ongoing challenge. Right, Donnell?

You guys watch for posts on Facebook as Donnell and I search for and compete to find the perfect Hero Material. Be sure you comment and tag us both!

Or maybe you have a candidate? Share with us.

Yea!!! Cindy Overton found and shared at picture of the Firestarter/Viagra man. Thank you, Cindy.

  1. LOl. This was Monday Giggle today Jerrie.

  2. Barb Han says:

    Hilarious, Jerrie! I haven’t seen Viagra guy…will keep a vigilant watch. :-)

  3. Donnell says:

    All I know is that “Viagra” commercial reeled me right in. I didn’t buy the product but I sure bought the actor solving the problem .

    Bailey Chase sure is cute. Gotta admit, particularly with these pictures, but if you watch Longmire, he’ll annoy the heck out of you because he’s the young whippersnapper running against Sheriff Walt Longmire!

    • Jerrie says:

      He looks good building the fire for sure.

      Bailey was on the TV show saving Grace. He was the good guy and I never could figure out why she didn’t pick him! He was perfect for my sheriff!

  4. Molly Cannon says:

    Oh, I love Bailey Chase. I first noticed him on an episode of Jag, and I loved him on Saving Grace. And I’m happy to see him on Longmire. I do have him as the inspiration for a book planned in the future. I have trouble finding the right guy for every book, though. It’s hard work!

    • Jerrie says:

      Molly, thanks for your vote! I’m assuming that was a vote. :) He was my sheriff in The Green-Eyed Doll. I agree, finding the right inspiration for each character is tough!

  5. Well…they’re both handsome. But I’m a sucker for a guy in a cowboy hat. Sorry, Donnell.

  6. Chrissy says:

    I absolutely adore this show. Not only that, as soon as l saw Bailey l thought romance novel hero. He’s hot. And l adore Branch, his character. Poor guy, Kate thinks she’s done w/ him. Silly girl. Who could be DONE w/ that?

    He’s HOT.

  7. You guys are all certifiably hilarious. And Chrissy, how do you have time to watch Longmire or anything else? You only work 3 jobs!!!!

    • Jerrie says:

      Clover! Donnell and I decided we have our own search for a hero…but as she said, older than her 26 year old son! I think we’re off to a good start! Don’t you?

  8. Donnell says:

    Okay deputy fans. But you mark my words. When we find out who Viagra guy is… he’s going to be a star :) And I do admit Bailey is sweet! There’s just something about that little tent erector! :) Thanks for the challenge, Jerrie!

    • Jerrie says:

      No doubt somebody will snag him for has own TV show! Next week I’ll look for a new candidate who is a tad older and I’ll post him on Facebook! See you then. :)

  9. Kathy Crouch says:

    Uhm I like Jim Caviezel on Person of Interest, and Viggo Mortensen. I like rugged looking men. :P
    I have never watched Longmire, never heard of it to be honest. And I haven’t seen that Viagra commercial y’all referred to either.
