Beef boys may become pin-up stars
By RACHEL SCOLLAY
FROM Beef Cake to pin-ups?
The 12 likely lads from Casino who made a splash in the recent Mr Beef competition may soon be gracing the walls in a calendar.
But the big question is ? will it sell?
Organiser Kenny Woodhams said that immediately after the contest they had lots of people enquiring about where they could buy the Mr Beef calendar.
"It was like it was a given that there would be a calendar. I think it was because we had 12 finalists," he said.
"But some of our blokes, I don't know you would want them stuck up on your wall for an entire month."
Kenny said all the contestants were keen to be part of it. "They've been ringing up asking when it's going to happen. Wanting to know 'when am I getting my next photo taken?'.
"They've all turned into a bunch of hams."
Kenny said with the talent all sewn up, it was merely a matter of finding a worthy charity and gauging the demand.
"We would want it to be a fair-dinkum thing, and make some money for the charity," he said.
Michael Newby was crowned Mr Beef at the inaugural beauty pageant. He edged out 11 others to take the title, which attracted widespread media and community interest.
