Carpenter Hall Executive Council is holding its first annual Mr. Carpenter Competition, a male pageant which will crown the very first king of Carpenter Hall.
Out of the more than 100 men in the hall, 10 males have made the final cut to proceed to competition which is at 7 p.m. in the Carpenter Lobby.
Contestants include Cody Berman, David Book, Will Ducey, Joel Greenya, Brock LaFace, Mark Lesser, Josh Matthews, Nate Paulson, Daniel Reishus and Dylan Verburgt.
The winner of the show will not only receive $50 toward a dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery, but a crown, sash and the reign as the Man of the Hall.
The competitors will compete in three categories before the elimination to the final four that head to the finals.
First is a choreographed dance round, which will then be followed by a showcase of personal talents. The men will end the preliminary rounds by showing of their Sunday’s Best in the Suit and Tie Formal Wear Strut.
After that the judges, who are four of Carpenter’s five residence assistants, will tally up the points and announce the finalist. These competitors will advance to the classic question round. The winner will be determined by an audience secret ballot vote.
Once the King is crowned, he will shine his pearly whites to the camera and hold a spot behind the Carpenter Front Desk until a new batch of men come around to fight for a spot.
The night’s event is hosted by members of Carpenter Executive Councils, including the Programming Chair and and First Floor Representative.
The planning committee has been working to plan the event for a month and a half and encourages students of all grades to attend. Programmers saod “the night is going to be filled with laughter, cookies, cheers and some of the elite studs who walk our campus.”
