Nifty studs of Rathgar strut their stuff
By EMMA CORNFORD
THE men who have entered The Daily Examiner's bachelor of the year contest may have some serious competition ? in the form of five, true blue studs from Rathgar House at Ulmarra.
The five men aged 52 to 85 competed in the Rathgar House competition yesterday, donning blue bonds singlets and taking part in a number of challenges including faux-farming tasks and a fashion parade.
There was even a cheer squad on the sidelines. The winner, Ross Bailey, clinched the ladies' choice vote by a nail-bitingly small margin and took home a large inflatable kiss for his efforts.
Rathgar House activities co-ordinator Helga Kunde said the contest had been originally inspired by The Daily Examiner bachelor of the year competition.
"Being the end of the year we're always looking for different things to do (and) these men are genuine, true blue Aussie brawn," Ms Kunde said.
"We asked around and they agreed they'd go for it. It was great fun."
Mr Bailey said he had a great time and was 'very surprised' to win the sought-after title.
