A panel of eight judges, recruited by Social & Personal from the worlds of fashion, beauty, fitness, entertainment, business and sport, recently compiled their definitive list of the 100 sexiest Irishmen for 2009, as featured in the February issue of the society magazine.
With Egyptian and Irish blood flowing through his veins; it’s easy to understand why 33-year-old Baz Ashmawy doesn’t look like your typical Irish guy, which may be a reason why he was ranked by our judges at No.1 on this year’s list.
So, how exactly did the man himself feel about being honoured as Ireland’s Sexiest Man of 2009? “I was embarrassed when I heard. It’s fairly flattering and very humbling.” he said modestly. Having spent the past number of months travelling around Ireland and the States meeting different groups of people and getting to familiarise himself with other cultures, Baz’s next TV project, Baz’s Culture Clash, airs on RTÉ next month.
Others to feature on the list, that was announced at a party in Lillies, included Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Craig Doyle, Wes Quirke, Kevin J. Ryan and Nicky Byrne.
