Rusty DeWees is a good sport in addition to actor, comedian and “scrawler.” When we told him he’d gotten the most votes for Vermonter You’d Most Like to See Naked, he laughed, took it in stride … and agreed to an unclothed photo shoot. In fact, it was his idea not to obscure the privates with some prop, like he did in his five “Logger” calendars. It was our idea to totally exploit Rusty by putting him on the front cover, but we don’t think he’ll mind. “I learned early in my career that I am the product,” he says candidly. That should serve him well in his latest venture as author: Scrawlins, a selection of his essays, comes out this fall.

By the way, Bernie Sanders was runner-up in this category, which we’re chalking up to name recognition. We kind of prefer him in a suit.
