Are you ready for a family battle this week?
Last week we paired Jeremy Sisto and Jeremy Renner. Sisto won by a long shot on that one…I thought the race would be a bit closer…but so far I have been off by over half of these Whatta Man Challenges.
Good thing we’re not playing for money!
But this week I will put all my eggs in one basket. I feel like I can clearly determine the winner, but since I have been wrong pretty much every time I will leave it up to you.
We’re talking Wahlbergs this week.
Yep Donnie vs. Mark.
Now, I have “known” Donnie longer. We had a bit of a relationship in the late 80s, early 90s. He was in a band that I was obsessed with in junior high, you might have heard of them? New Kids on the Block?
Anyway, even though I was more of a Joey girl, I recognized that Donnie was purty cute. He had the “bad boy from Boston” thing, but always seemed like a G rated version of a bad boy.
I mean when someone is singing about Hangin’Tough while wearing pinch rolled overalls with one strap unfastened you don’t really think of them as too “street”.
A few years later Donnie’s little brother Marky Mark made it big. He was in a “Funky Bunch” and they sang about “Good Vibrations”. I wasn’t a huge fan.
A little time went by and this happened…Donnie stayed in NKOTB and Marky decided to try on some Calvins.
Mark dropped the funky bunch faster than he dropped his drawers and a movie star was born.
As grunge took over the early 90s and Joey McIntyre hit puberty NKOTB vanished from the spotlight.
In it’s place, the Wahlberg brothers both started their acting careers.
Mark’s took off faster, but Donnie’s has been slow and steady.
No more pants dropping, no more Hangin’ Tough harmonies…these brothers wanted to be taken seriously.
And nothing says serious more than a black and white shot…am I right?
Donnie did bit parts in The Sixth Sense while Wahlberg did full movie star roles in The Perfect Storm…both excellent, btw.
Let’s check out happier times, when they aren’t dead…or aren’t about to drown…
Let’s see how they fair in casual wear…
I thought I had my mind made up…
So let’s another look.
One more peak at the brothers in serious mode.
Can I take them both?
So there you have it..the good and the not so good.
Who’s your favorite Wahlberg?
