Oh, Marko! Continuing with our Chub of the Year celebrities who received multiple votes (but not enough to get them into the top spots) we have Washington politico Marko Liias. Marko is one of the most popular politicians we’ve ever covered, and for being new to the scene and not exactly someone with a ton of name recognition, he’s made a very impressive showing this year.
This is the very first time actor Richard Riehle has ever appeared on Chubarama. Kinda hard to believe, right? He was popular enough with readers to garner a handful of votes, which is quite good considering we’ve never had a post devoted to him. Expect one early in 2010.
Why did perennial favorite Seth Rogen only get a handful of votes this year? Probably because he’s not a chub anymore! As we’ve discussed before Seth is currently slimmer while filming his role in the upcoming Green Hornet, but we’ll see if he keeps off the pounds in the future.
Do you recognize who that is there in the back? Why, it’s Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel. Andrew was mentioned by quite a few readers for Chub of the Year 2009, and for good reason – the guy takes his shirt off in every other episode of Bizarre World. Yummy stuff!
Lastly, Kevin James took the biggest hit this year. After placing 2nd in the 2008 poll, Kevin couldn’t even bust into the top 10 in 2009. We knew Paul Blart: Mall Cop was bad, but was it that bad?
We still have the top two spots to reveal, which will happen in the morning hours Monday, Eastern Standard time. Sweet dreams until then!
