Butch Hunt 09 Finals @ZOUK | 27/07/2009

In the week leading up to the competition, we all felt the pressure pile on, rushing for time to perfect our individual talent segments as well as the group dance.

The day of the competition was rather eventful. Firstly, when we got to Zouk, they insisted on taking our temperatures. A few of us got stuck outside in the sweltering heat because we had temperatures above 37.5 and they wouldn’t let us in.

B4 Benson, didn’t even make it to the stage because she fell quite ill that day. The people at Zouk even made her wear a mask. What a waste! Thankfully, after a week’s quarantine, she was declared virus free.

But I digress… we were all pretty stressed out, there were so many segments and positions to remember. And I happen to possess the memory capacity of a pea.

After a pretty grueling five hour rehearsal, it was time to suit up and powder our noses. HAHA. Crammed into the little dressing room, the eight contestants preened themselves to look picture perfect in front of the crowd that was gathering outside.

The crowd outside was buzzing excitedly, they couldn’t wait for the show to begin. Looking sharp in our suits we opened the show with a "Wonderboyz" song, Nobody.

Boo and Jada took the stage to introduce the contestants as we paraded around and posed in an assortment of positions for the cheering crowd of people and the judges to scrutinize.

The next segment, we walked about in casual beach wear, courtesy of NewUrbanMale.com.

Then the reality videos were played, this was a new part of Butch Hunt, the contestants were to script and direct their very own video, giving the viewers a little glimpse into their lives.

Up next was the most exciting part of the night, the talent segment! There was an assortment of dancing, singing and even a couple of magicians thrown in for good measure.

After that, the crowd was treated to an MTV of the nine contestants performing Craig David’s Insomnia. It was really awesome to see the final product after so much hard work and effort had gone into producing the video.

The dancers took the stage next and entertained the eager audience with their flashy moves and superb rhythm.

Finally it was all over, it had gone by in a blur. For me, it felt as if the entire show had lasted for all of ten minutes. The winners of the various prizes were given sashes and it must have been a real proud moment for them, all the hard work had indeed paid off.

It was a night to remember for some, a night to forget for others but indeed it was one helluva night and one heck of an experience.

Congratulations to Vinz, the Butch Hunt 2009 champion. Long live the king!
