From Ah boys to Flame Awards nominees

From Ah boys to Flame Awards nominees
Local actor Wang Weiliang shot to stardom in director Jack Neo's hugely successful Ah Boys To Men two-part film.

Yes, we know we always have a Dude of the Year category for our annual Flame Awards.

But considering the Ah Boys' domination of local entertainment this year, we thought we might as well pick the best of this group.

They helped make local director Jack Neo's two-part Ah Boys To Men films the biggest local box office performers, with the second movie making $7.9 million while the first raked in $6.18 million.

Its stars went on to appear everywhere, from beauty and burger ads to regional cruises.

But which Ah Boy is the best?

Joshua Tan - Can this 'part-timer' win?

If we gave subsidiary awards, Joshua Tan would win Best Ah Boy Bod of the Year, for sure.

Living up to both his lead character status in the Ah Boys To Men movies and his Cleo's Most Eligible Bachelor title, Tan is a bona fide hunk.

Pictures of his washboard abs have been flying around the Internet since he shot ads for spa and skincare specialist Beaute Hub earlier this year.

But with that disarming smile and an endorsement deal with traditional pastry shop Thye Moh Chan, he is also the kind of guy you (I, we, all of us girls) would love to bring home to mum.

So we are surprised that the 23-year-old is surprised he has been nominated.

"Honestly, I'm quite shocked. I haven't been around in Singapore much this past year and whenever I'm back, it's usually just for work. Then I head straight back to Melbourne for school," he told The New Paper via e-mail.

Tan is pursuing a degree in journalism and communication at Monash University.
