One of these things is cooler than the others

When I received this awesome picture from IHGB reader/triathlete Kari, it took me a while to process what I was seeing with my very own eyes.  Take a look for yourself:

1.  I’m convinced that Lieutenant Doctor Andy Baldwin shot at least four rounds of Botox into his forehead before the triathlon.  Does anyone else feel that he is wearing waterproof mascara?  The eyes are popping a little too much for me.  And I get that swim caps are supposed to be tight, but surely he should re-think the elasticity if he appears to be an Asian drag version of himself.  Am I wrong here?

2.  Ah.  Trista’s Husband Ryan…you are so pretty.  It’s a special sight to behold when you can count a man’s six pack through his wet suit.

3.  And then there’s Harrison.  I’d be willing to bet that he’s pulling back on the charm because he feels sorry for the other two.  His teeth are gleaming white.  His goggles are über stylish.  And when Asian Lieutenant Doctor Baldwin suggested they “thumbs up” for the camera, Harrison schooled our former Bachelors on what constitutes an appropriate manly hand gesture.  It’s either “rock on,” a reverse hook ’em horns or a secret LA gang sign he’s flashing to his fellow boyz in the hood.

Classic Harrison.  Simply classic.

OMG! I was looking at the picture thinking that Andy Baldwin must be your friend, Kari. Please forgive me, Kari!!!!!!!!!! What is wrong with AB? He’s a freak show!!

Ryan and OHCH are absolute dolls! They must ditch the “chick” in this pic!!

Absolutely made me LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!
You are right on about AndyB.
I thought before reading your caption: Who IS that Asian guy? Looks familiar, but NOT.
And isn’t Ryan STUNNING?!

PS: And poor AndyB’s NECK. What’s with that? Sorry, mine’s not anything to write home about, but that’s precisely why I don’t wear really tight wetsuits.

At first I thought Lt. Andy Baldwin was Firestone that had gained a few pounds… anyone else see the odd resemblance?

I’m still not sure I believe that is the same guy I watched ditch Bevin the ankle faker, but if you say so.
Trista’s Ryan is HOTT!

The women in my life love to see me sweat too – but that usually means I get to push a mower around for an hour or so…

Yes, Andy looks terrible. I agree 100%. But I’m uber-impressed that these 3 did the Ironman! (At least that’s what I’m assuming this picture is from.) That’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run…ALL IN ONE DAY! Super, super impressive.

This picture is great!
OHCH is pure awesomeness, of course!

Ryan – the six pack is beyond impressive. He’d make a better Batman than Christian Bale because he wouldn’t even need fake Batsuit abs – he rocks his own amazing abs!! WOW!

Then… there’s Andy Baldwin. Oh Lincee, you made me laugh with your waterproof mascara making his eyes pop. Poor Andy! He’s just a mere wallflower next to the other two guys in the picture.
