12.5.2011: Man Crush of the Year
I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who voted for me in the competition that I was selected for this past week. I was up for MAN CRUSH OF THE YEAR award. It was such an honor to be nominated into the top 10 out of 360 models/actors/porn-stars. While I came in second this week, you all have made this a great year to remember and I love you all for it. So, thank you for voting for me.
Also, this year, my feature (back in Feb) generated the SECOND highest views for the year (out of 300+). Which is awesome, and I appreciate all the love you guys give me. On a site that has tens of thousands of views a day, its a huge honor. So thank you again for that.
Thanks to Man Crush Blog for all the love that they give me on my pictures/videos/posts/Daily Derek/etc. You have been a HUGE HUGE HUGE part of my career to date and especially this past year. So thank you for your support and encouragement. Also, congrats to Benjamin Godfre on winning the contest. You were a fierce competitor and someone that I admire for your work. Your fans love you, and I can see why.
