Tahoe’s most eligible bachelor

Back in December we teamed up with Fine N Funky boutique in Tahoe City and asked action readers to nominate the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes in the Tahoe/Truckee area.

With a prize package of $250 gift certificates to Fine N Funky on the line for the winners, along with a haircut and makeover by Lisa Arnbrister of Salon Fandango in Truckee, we received a variety of nominations which were then paired down to the folks you see on this and the following pages.

Not surprisingly, we received almost twice as many nominations for bachelors as for bachelorettes (perhaps reflecting the lopsided ratio of single guys to single girls in the Tahoe area).

And while not everyone could take the title of “Tahoe’s Most Eligible,” we think that all of these folks are deserving of your attention.

So the next time you see these eligible guys, say hello.

We’ll start by listing the guys who were nominated, with the winner profiled at the end.
