BuzzFeed asked their on-line community to name their hottest news personalities and then ranked them the ‘The 50 Hottest News Anchors In The World.’ The report was released this morning.

Our Eye-Candy Eyewitness hunk is no stranger to recognition for his on-screen sex appeal. In 2014 People Magazine honored Barajas as a ‘finalist’ for ‘Hottest Anchors.’

Stunningly though, before his ‘huge arms’ grabbing the spotlight it was his ‘do,’ as in hairdo. Yes! According to KTRK-ABC 13, Barajas won the ‘Hairry Award,’ an award that honors the best male anchor ‘hair’ in Texas.

No other Texas news anchor landed anywhere on the Top 50 list below #35.

“Perfect end to a perfect trip with a perfect man! I’m proud and unbelievably blessed to be engaged to Lance Wilcox!”

“Perfect end to a perfect trip with a perfect man! I’m proud and unbelievably blessed to be engaged to Lance Wilcox,” Peranio wrote in his post. The pair was on vacation in South America when Wilcox saw the opportunity to propose.

“We were on the balcony of our condo in Costa Rica,” Peranio says; explaining when the ‘question’ was popped. “He had a black ring box in his hand, and he knelt down and said ‘would you like to go on more adventures together,’ and of course I said yes!”

“Of course he said yes before I even got to ask him the question,” Wilcox says. “But thats what I love about him, nothing goes according to plan.”

With every LGBT engagement and wedding being unique, it’s up to each couple to interpret the traditions of marriage to suit their celebration. With Wilcox and Peranio, both have agreed to a ‘long’ engagement allowing time to plan their perfect day. “LGBT weddings are so new, it’s exciting that we can create a wedding that we want, and not have a book of etiquette to follow.” Wilcox said.

An official wedding date has not been set yet. Stay tuned.
