A few months ago we reported that a local man was in the running for the GayTravel.com guru position, getting to earn $30k for spending half-a-year sleeping around.

He didn’t make it.

Instead, this guy did: Nick Vivion of Seattle. What’s cool is, he kicks off the world tour in October … right here in Dallas.

Vivion is nerdy-cute, and we’re all about that, but we gotta say: Since it was a position voted by readers online, we’re a bit surprised Chad Bush, another finalist who has traditional hunk-tastic cred (pictured below), didn’t sway more voters. But good for Nick!
