This week’s #MCM is the handsome and multitalented mixed martial artist Elias “The Spartan” Theodorou. Known as the heartthrob of UFC, this pretty pugilist is undefeated in the octagon, and we imagine with the ladies as well. I mean, would you turn down a guy who won 12 fights in a row with some of the strongest fighters in the UFC, all the while keeping that cheeky smile, and gorgeous face intact? We didn’t think so. And we haven’t even talked about the chiseled physique that landed him the cover of HiM’s(Handsome International Men)’s 2015 calendar. But we can definitely talk about that later. While Elias may not be winning the Amazing Race Canada, he’s definitely won his way into our hearts, and that’s why he’s our #mancrushmonday.
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
The first thing I notice, in a potential love interest – is a sense of humor. Of course beauty is the first thing we notice biologically, and even on a subconscious level. But it’s a person’s ability to make me laugh that stands out most. A big brain and being hilarious is VERY sexy to me.
Who would you want to have make the first move?
I am definitely a social butterfly, so it tends to be yours truly that makes the first move. Like mentioned earlier, humor, is big thing for me. That means I have to be fun, too!
When I break the ice, it’s usually with a joke. Which can even have us laughing at my expense. Being a little bit self-deprecating can be a GOOD thing. It makes me look more easy going. I am a team player for a laugh.
What is your ideal first date?
My ideal first date involves an adventure. It could be as simple as glow in the dark mini putting, an art museum or even conversation with a few drinks. The important thing is us hitting it off!
What’s your instant deal breaker?
My instant deal breaker is no sense of humor or personality. Not saying she would have to be Sarah Silverman funny, but more interesting then sack of rocks.
Who do you go to for dating advice?
My friends are usually the first people I look to for dating advise, or at least to share a dating horror story. Gotta love laughing with friends about the most awkward moments of your life.
