If you have the latest copy of the Malaysian Women’s Weekly, you would recognize him as one of the finalists for the “Who’s your favorite Hunky Hubby?” contest. He is Jerad Solomon, Hunky Hubby finalist #01… and the best thing of all is that I actually know this man! You see, Jerad is one of my hubby’s best friends and they were both former classmates. That’s not all, Mr Inspiring right here is the boss of that lingerie store ad I have on my side bar…see? š And, oh well…I took the liberty to virtually interview Jerad yesterday, … yep, the wonders of technology. He was such a sport, he completed the interview in super quick time!
Me: Why do you think you have been selected as a finalist?
Jerad: The mag people knew I run Chicwear.com.my (Hema mentioned it in her submission)ā¦so my guess is thatās what got their attention.
Me: Describe your perfect vacation.
Jerad: Island, beach, snorkeling, quietness, sleepā¦and wife for company.
Me: I know that you pamper yourself with a haircut every month, but have you ever gone for a facial before?
Jerad: Tried it once before and it was quite relaxing actuallyā¦..but the steam part kinda made me feel my face was gonna melt off!
Me: What is the first thing you do when you arrive at work?
Jerad: Coffee and emails.
Me: What is the first thing you do when you come home after work?
Jerad: Take off my shoes and change into something more comfortable. No fixed routine for after thatā¦.sometimes the net, sometimes house chores, etc.
Me: Whisky, Wine or Beer?
Jerad: Beer for sure. I had the chance to try out some german beers recently and was quite hooked on them.
Me: If you could be a superhero, who would you be, and why?
Jerad: Batman. A cool dude with a fast car and brains.
Me: What kind of exercise do you do to keep in shape?
Jerad: Futsal every week. Try to do more but time and laziness gets in the way sometimes.
Me: What is your favorite TV program now?
Jerad: 24 without a doubt. Itās the best tv series ever. Canāt wait for the next season already. In the meantime I get my regular dose of Prison Break and House.
Me: Any other comments??
Jerad: I had no idea Hema had submitted me for this contest and was totally dumb struck when the mag called and told me I was picked as a finalist. I have never been into this sort of thing and have never experienced a photoshoot before. But I relented and went ahead with it to support her effort. I must admit it was a cool experience in the end. Now my wife accuses me of being a closet celebrity-wannabe!
But sorry ladies, he just got married last year, i.e. not available anymore …hence him being a “Hunky Hubby” finalist.
