Hard to believe the beard contest is coming to a close at the end of the month but before it wraps up I’ve got a few more beard competitors to bring your way.

The first beard contestant for December is a pretty impressive one!

He wasn’t much of a talker but with a beard like that not many words are needed! Am I right!

This is is Jari!

5 fun facts? I remember one but it is not fun, just geeky. I havd read LOTR 23 times.


Next year the beard contest will be replaced with a monthly bearded feature! A bearded fellow hand chosen from Instagram will be featured right here on my blog! 12 months! 12 beards! To be voted on to be chosen as Badass Beard Embassador for the entire year! Don’t forget to vote for any competitor from this years contest. A grand champion will be chosen from the highest vote tally!
