Cocktail hour heats up the evening at Exdo Event Center
The VIP cocktail hour set the bar for the night, allowing event goers to mingle and meet the firefighters before the big show kicked off. Some firefighters were topless and ready to pose for pictures with their excited female fans, while others switched into politician-mode to try and win over popularity votes. Their hotness trumped any nerves they were feeling for the competition—knowing that in just a couple short hours, they'd have to strut their stuff in front of a panel of celebrity judges and hundreds of fans in hopes of making the cut in the 2012 Colorado Firefighter Calendar.
The VIP cocktail hour was definitely the calm before the very sexy heat wave that was about to take place.
