Adam Lambert voted most eligible gay bachelor on the planet

Singer easily beats the likes of Chris Colfer, Ricky Martin, and Steve Grand in annual OUT Magazine poll

Adam Lambert voted most eligible gay bachelor on the planet
14 February 2014

Adam Lambert is, by a landslide, the most dateable gay guy on the planet.

That is the verdict, announced today, of the readers of OUT Magazine who chose Lambert from a list of 100 eligible bachelors.

With 21.8% of the vote, the American Idol alum and Grammy nominee took over the top spot that was occupied by his Glee co-star Chris Colfer last year. Colfer slipped down to number 6 in this year’s poll.

Lambert, 32, was not in last year’s survey because he was in a relationship with Sauli Koskinen. But, the pair broke up last April.

Surprisingly, the newly single Ricky Martin did not make the top 10 – he finished in 11th place.

Also surprising was the runner-up, actor and singer Chris Salvatore who is best known for his leading role in the two most recent Eating Out movies.

But it turns out Salvatore is not actually single anymore and is dating a guy named Patrick McDonald.

So much for being eligible.

Finishing in third place is actor Darryl Stephens who is best known for the title role in the Noah’s Arc feature film and television series. He also starred in the recent TV series DTLA.

Singer Steve Grand of All-American Boy fame made his debut on the list in seventh place and actor and screenwriter Wentworth Miller, who came out publicly last year, finished ninth behind author Christopher Rice.

Looking star Jonathan Groff missed out on a top 10 finish because readers split the vote between the character of Patrick that he plays on the show (12th place) and the actor himself (13th place).

Among the notables who received less than 1% of the vote were basketball player Jason Collins, diver Matthew Mitcham, TV personalities Andy Cohen and Tim Gunn and Glee star Alex Newell.

Two men who have not come out publicly were also on the OUT ballot: actor Lee Pace (22nd place) and MSNBC host Ronan Farrow (33rd place).

The top 10: 1. Adam Lambert (musician/actor) 2. Chris Salvatore (musician/actor) 3. Darryl Stephens (actor) 4. Eliad Cohen (entrepreneur/party promoter) 5. Brian Sims (politician) 6. Chris Colfer (actor) 7. Steve Grand (musician) 8. Christopher Rice (author) 9. Wentworth Miller (actor/screenwriter) 10. Andrej Pejic (model).

Here is a complete list of the top 100.
