Ah, Valentine’s Day… love it or loathe it, we’re stuck with it, so might as well make it interesting with a little game!
When you actually take the time to look back, Eurovision has given us a lot of eye candy from all over the continent. Most everyone has their secret Eurovision crush, so what better way to celebrate the day of love (and surely lust?!) with a democratic poll!
We’ve trawled through the contestants and selected just one man and one woman from all recent competing countries at Eurovision for you to vote for – and believe us when we say, that was hard work choosing just ONE! Who will you vote for? Maybe the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen? The dashing gentlemen you want to sweep you off your feet? Or simply that someone you’d love to share a wild night of passion with – now you can vote for them!
Over the coming week, we’ll be posting 6 polls – 3 of the gorgeous girls, 3 of the handsome hunks for you to choose from. The Top 3 from each semi will go to a final round of voting to determine our winners. On Valentine’s Day, we’ll announce the winning couple and name them Eurovision Ireland’s Valentine’s Couple 2017!
So without further ado, let’s get started with Semi Final #1 and ladies first! Don’t worry if your country didn’t appear in this edition of the poll – it’ll be featured soon, we promise! Cross our candy hearts!
