Hottest Aussie from Balclutha

Balclutha-born Dean Tahana has been crowned Australia’s sexiest man. The 29-year-old won the 2007 Mister Manhunt Australia competition, Australia’s biggest competition for male models. “I entered the regionals up in Noosa, Queensland, when I was visiting my little girl, who lives with her Mum there,” he said. “Then I went on to the national finals in Darwin, and I couldn’t believe I won that. I was chuffed as.” Tahana runs a mortgage finance business in Brisbane and models part-time.
