This round we asked: What's the manliest thing a guy can do?

Contestant 1

The manliest thing I can think of is a big, muscular man cuddling a whole gang of furry animals, such as kittens or puppies. Picture his arms wrapped around the animals, being ever so gentle with them ... How manly is that? Part of being manly is not being afraid of showing off your soft side, even when you have a tough appearance. That's why I think that guys who are kind to animals (and children alike) are very manly.

Contestant 2

There is nothing more manly than having abs and occasionally getting suited up. Which is more appealing: being compactly built or being scrawny and scraggy? The former, of course! By displaying your muscular biceps and six-pack, you'll show that you're manly and capable of lifting at least "something".

On the other hand, the sartorial elegance achieved through "suiting up" demonstrates an air of chivalry and gentlemanliness; How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson once said that dressing sharply "shows that one is a force to be reckoned with". We girls just go crazy about these ravishing and masculine gentlemen like Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston.

Contestant 3

While most people would agree that activities like skydiving or cutting down trees are extremely manly, I believe that the manliest thing to do is to survive a dangerous situation, be it living on a deserted island or climbing an iceberg.

Imagine how hard it must be to find food on an isolated island, or how difficult it would be to make it through the cold while perched on an iceberg. Indeed, surviving a dangerous situation sounds frightening, but it is a way for a man to prove his courage - by getting away unscathed while facing death.

Therefore, the manliest thing I can imagine is when a man conquers death in a dangerous sport.

Contestant 4

The manliest thing I can think of? It has to be Korean flower boys. Have you seen any K-pop boy bands recently? They radiate manliness from every single pore. Have you seen their sharp jawlines and long eyelashes? Their made-up faces and petite noses? Have you noticed their limbs - long and thin, with never a hint of fat but a touch of muscle here and there? Have you seen the length of their legs? Have you seen their pelvic thrusts? They are nothing if not true man, truly manly - look at the number of women screaming their names!
