Mike Francois - The Beast From The East

Ridiculously handsome Mike started his career in 1990 being crowned Mr. Ohio, and started competing on the national level in 1992. 

Michael's professional status was earned by winning the National Championships in 1993.
His professional debut was in 1994, winning both the Chicago Pro Invitational and the Night of Champions in New York City.

In March of 1995, Mike won the prestigious Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic (beating out Flex Wheeler) and kept the winning streak alive by winning the San Jose Pro Invitational the following weekend.
Later that year in his Olympia debut he placed 7th.
Francois was never able to improve on his Olympia finishes (10th in '96 and 11th in '97), and was -sadly- forced to retire in 1998 due to a Ulcerative Colitis.
Such a shame for this amazing athlete because in my opinion he wasn't even at his peak.

Michael has the distinct honor of being the only professional bodybuilder to win their first four professional competitions.
Today he remains active in the sport, he's sponsoring the NPC Mike Francois Classic and he has a fitness company.

Mike Ergas

I always thought that Mike was a handsome and sweet guy (and hot as hell) with a great smile full of kindness.

When I learnt that he is openly gay my respect and admiration for him has increased - although I think that this cost him a certain something in bodybuilding scene - and this happened because bodybuilding is so full of assholes who cannot think / admit that gays can be serious and competitive bodybuilders, too - except the porn stuff, escorting etc).

In this sport there are so many in the closet that is almost ridiculous when some people act that there aren't.
I am not in favor of transparency of people's lives but I hate.. I really hate hypocrisy.

Stats :

D.o.B : 05/13/1969
P.o.B : Clearwater, FL, USA
Height : 5' 6" (176 cm)

P.S : Three days before Mike announced via Facebook his comeback to the stage in 2015! Good luck Mike ! I really wish you the best !
(Mike's last competition was in 2009 at Europa Supershow where he finished 11th).

Mike Dragna

Oh those memories!
I remember my self around 2003 discovering internet and.. hmm.. bodybuilders, hunks, and gay porn.
One of  my first crush-es was Mike too.
Huge, dark haired, amazingly handsome, lips for kiss.. all this exotic appearance was like a revelation to me.
I also remember that I had printed photos of him and had them under my bed..
Well I must admit that those photos were a jack off material for so many nights back then!

The only thing I know about Mike is that he is a former marine, former Mr. Hawaii and that he is married and lives in Hawaii.
Apart from bodybuilder he was a personal trainer, model and exotic dancer.

Now let's see his career (as bodybuilder) :  

Before winning his pro card in 2003 at NPC USA Championships he had competed in 3 other contests : in 2000 (7th), 2001 (4th) and 2002 (9th) (all in NPC).
After winning his pro card  he competed at only one pro show (2004 GNC Show of Strength) where he placed 13th, and then disappeared from the competitive bodybuilding scene.

As a model / dancer :

In 2000 he did some photo shoots and videos for MuscleGallery and MuscleWeb.
In 2006 he surfaced again for some shoots and stripping videos (but never full frontal) for Muscle Gallery, JockButt and Jimmy Z and then nothing, he disappeared again..
Such a shame because he really had all the potential for a bigger career in both.

After  years of no news.. I've read recently that he is preparing to make a comeback in bodybuilding this year! I really hope this is true - I can't wait to see him again !!

Stats :

D.o.B : 05/29/1973
P.o.B : Hawaii, USA
Height : 5' 7" (170 cm)
Weight : 220 lbs (100 kg)

Last photo is quite recent .. so yeah Mike is hot as always!
