Our man in the Romantic Times Mr. Romance contest, Travis Greiman, brings us up-to-date on his prep for Saturday night's big event. The winner of the Mr. Romance contest appears on several romance novel covers and can look forward to a career as a romance novel cover guy...
MB: What have you been doing to prepare for the Mr. Romance contest?
TG: Nothing out of >the ordinary. Mostly its the mental preparation, getting prepared to >be up in front of all those people...it should be scary. However, this has definitely given me motivation to go to the gym when I am supposed to. Now that its nice out though I spend a lot of time outside and get >plenty of exercise.
TG:The thought of being shirtless in front of thousands of women kept me motivated over those winter months which can get awfully hard.
MB:What do you like least?
TG:It would have to be the unknown. I don't really know what to expect so I really do not know how to prepare.
TG:Well I hope they don't think that I'm being sacrificed to "the wolves." Their party doesn't sound so bad; I believe the plan is for me to serve drinks at their little gathering, and I have always enjoyed bartending.
TG: Oh of course. I see them out there all the time, especially since the weather has gotten nice, everyone comes out of hiding. I just usually have trouble doing anything about it.
MB: How's the studying for the finals going?
TG:It's been pretty easy. This is my last semester here and then I'm graduating and I've just finished my last actual test. All I have left is some papers and web projects. It has not been overall stressful, >but I'm rather looking forward to getting all my work done.
MB:Tell us whatever you'd like that I haven't asked.
TG: I'm just finishing my undergrad and will be applying to med schools this summer, so that has taken most of my time. I love the outdoors, especially horse back riding and thoroughly enjoy taking my dog out on long walks. I know I should be able to talk about myself, I should be qualified, but it just seems too vague.
If you have any other questions about me please just ask. I happen to be one of my favorite subjects.
