DBD 2.4.10 BAM Competition

First DBD so try not to judge please.  Thanks! 

With that...

Lets discuss BAM! (Thanks Fire Starkey for the idea to help me fulfill my DBD duty!)

BAM or Baseline Attractiveness Minimum is the lowest level of attractiveness one is willing to accept when evaluating a potential mate.  Please note that "potential mate" can refer to both long-term (husb/wife, fiance, bf) and short-term (hook-up, one night stand, fbuddy) partners.  As a result BAM will vary depending on situation. 

To relate this to you die-hard sports fans, after the jump, we will illustrate BAM using current NFL QBs. 

The following QBs are rated on a scale of 1-10... 10 being the hottest. In general, my BAM will usually fall between level 5 and level 6.  Having said that, if I am considering for longer-term potential, BAM can fall to level 4, as other intangibles will lift a not-as-worthy individual into BAM catergory.   Here goes...

#1: Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers

I think we are all in universal agreement on this one.  If we're not, we should be. 




#2: Brett Favre, fmr Vikings

Brett is the perfect example of downgrade to Below BAM due to complete douchebaggery.  Photo caption should be "whaaaambulance"




#3: Dennis Dixon, Steelers

I guess the Steelers go for Talent over Hotness




#4: Payton Manning, Colts

Two words... five head



#5: Donovan McNabb, Eagles

Nice smile but McNabb is a perfect five.  Neither ugly nor hot.



#6: Aaron Rodgers, Packers

BAM. While ARod doesn't meet my technical BAM, he is upgraded due to... well... being Aaron Rodgers. 




#7: JaMarcus Russell, Raiders

This may be a controversial pick.  But he's sooo over BAM.  Dude's foine y'all.



#8: Kyle Boller, Ravens

In addition to being a Cal quarterback, KB is smoking.




#9: Tom Brady, Pats

Hard to not at least meet BAM when you're dating Giselle.  Brady's a 9 cuz he's also got multiple Superbowl rings.




#10: Mark Sanchez, Jets

Bonus points for the latin spice.  Caliente caliente!!



Agree or disagree.  Make a BAM list of your own.  Internet fight.  Go!
