Hawai'i is set to pick their most romantic dude. And you can vote too.

The four finalists include three older gents (Jicky Ferrer, Andrew Yoza, and Leo Ramirez, aged 51, 60, and 63, respectively) and a 25-year old buck (Chris Deringer). These guys are just lucky that Magnum is ineligible. It would be tough to live up to his standard;he mustache, the chest hair, the Ferrari.

The headlining acts of the RomFest include Aaron Neville (lucky for him that the concert is in Hawai’i with all that smooth cocoa butter), Gladys Knight, and Smokey Robinson.

Should every state have one of these competitions?
