We've contacted the winner about his charity choice as well as a staff member concerning the medals. Keep your eyes peeled for those!

Seeing we're kind of "waiting around" I would like to state that Mister LS will not happen next year. I know I've said that last year but I was persuaded heavily to host again this year. It's a fun but very demanding job. Pair that up with real life getting in the way (new 24/7 job), the aging GTA:O wardrobe that has made Miss LS call it quits and (specific) members raising concerns constantly just isn't worth it. I'm pleased to entertain those that let themselves be entertained and I couldn't have done it without the amazing team that I've had this year. I'm willing to hand over the Mister Los Santos account next year to someone who will host and who I believe to be fit and ready for the task...if Mister LS does happen as I fear it will either die off or RDR2 will be Mister Wild West.

Once the charity confirmation comes through (a day or two at most) we'll be requesting a lock and a ticket to a hot beach so we can sip on some Piña Coladas and ogle half-naked Brazilian men.

There is always a clown trying to look cool by being condescending but only looks stupid when the comment is based on ignorance. lol My gripe isnt even about the final round. Get your facts str8 before you try and correct someone. smh


Oh yeah, dude, my bad, of course you didn't make the final round, did you?; ergo of course your gripe about the poll being an unfair popularity contest isn't to do with the final round, a final round that includes a poll which is structured in a way which could make it 100% a popularity contest. Your gripe is with the poll in the earlier round, a much fairer poll with judging scores included. Lmao. There's only one clown around here, Bumpy.

Thank you for all the hard work, LJ & Team!  This is always done so professionally it's a wonder it's done by rank amateurs.  Here, I now promote you to Official Staff Amateurs.  And since I'm not staff:

Reading this comment I was going to suggest we might have a Mr/Ms Blackwater competition next year  :lol:  but then I read you had a similar thought already.

The choice has been made. Due tribute to past year contest and thematics overall, we're donating to Men's Health yet one more time.

Stand by for report from livejoker.

Medals are nice but the idea of making all of this for charity always brings a smile to my face. Well, I'm smiling once again as Sanches has gracefully (as he stated) decided to stick to Men's Health. This time we've donated to Orchid, a UK-based charity that focuses on Penile, Testicular and Prostate cancer. We've made a lot of dick jokes with Mister LS from last year and this year but cancer, in any form, is no laughing matter so it's so good to aid the battle against cancer affecting men. I took a quick look around the website and it looks fantastic. The only issue is that it's UK-based and deals in euro/euros. I've converted from Canadian dollar as the prize does say $50, though I should specify it being Canadian dollars that smell like maple syrup.

Lastly, a big thank you to the team of judges (iLL, Amy, Recon, Mach, REXX) - just amazing people. They've supported me through this last round even when this round didn't require their judging skills. Another thanks to ARTHUR. as special guest judge, all those involved in the Meet & Greet and shout out to Rejeckted for all the GFX work he's done. Big thanks to the staff, most specifically Raavi and RedDagger for helping me with the votes and thread management. Lastly, sloppy wet kiss to Sanches for picking this charity and all other contestants for being great sports as well as all voters and viewers.

We'll be asking for a lock tomorrow. Staff, feel free to unpin this if you wish. :)

Just want to say thank you to LJ who considered and selected me as a judge this year and for organizing the Mister LS 2017, all of my fellow judges and not last but least; every single person that took the time to participate!

Orchid shall be pleased with the donation, the fact this was all for charity makes me proud of everyone! One day scientists will grab that cancer by the balls (literally).

Rexx, out! 😎

Wonderful job, everyone! Congrats to Sanches for the win! Reading all of the entries was quite entertaining, and many of the pictures clever. Sad to hear this won't be returning, so it was fun while it lasted!

Conrats Sanches!

 

A well deserved winner. Be careful not to let that crown go over your helmet.

 

Also a special thanks to LJ and the judges for making this happen.

I've really enjoyed reading through all of the entries (and flame wars).

 

Cheers

I know I said it a couple of times before, but Thank You LiveJoker for your hard work & dedication towards the contest.

And thank you to the judges & everyone who participated this year, it was fun.

I also want to say Congratulations to Sanches on his victory - a testament to the power of a great story/a unique character.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to make an entry, write a background, take all the pictures and graphics and really make this competition an event. Its always great to have artistic talent showcased and see that GTA can be more than just K/D ratios and headshots. Mr. LS was the platform but it's the contestants that make it real. There was initial concern over how many people would show out for such a contest considering we're well over four years since the game's release and I was legitimately pleased at the turnout.

Also want to give props to my fellow judges. Couldn't have wished for a better group of people to bounce ideas off of. All very respectful and kind people behind the scenes, but also pragmatic and not afraid to keep it real. Cheers y'all.

Finally though, this competition couldn't have happened without LiveJoker. He's put in so much time to make this happen as well as his own IRL cash. Despite all the drama and debates and issues along the way he's always kept it professional and kept the focus of the competition on fun and creativity. Sure anyone can make a thread and title it such, but LJ went the extra mile to make this competition legitimate and respected every step of the way. Very well-organized on his part and whoever takes the reins from here would do well to follow his example.

Personally very glad to have had this opportunity as a judge.

shot-outs to my fellow judges,

& a huge thanks to all the contestants that took the time to put together these entries.

Fallen

 

wV5V5Cc.jpg

 

Empires rise and empires fall. Great men of history, eventually all wither into the dirt. I woke up 

this morning with a sense of closure in my mind. I can feel it to my bones. Old weather beaten

skin tingling as the sun kisses it through my penthouse windows one last time. I look out

on my kingdom, a place of many shadows that I have taken advantage of to bend this town

to my will. For my own personal gain. 

 

27AS2ig.jpg?1

 

Fear is not something I am familiar with. I watched as many of my family have fallen. Many in

the ground now. Seen my fair share of this world. Some of the good, and most of the bad. Over the 

last year my business has slowly faded. Employees have slowly stopped returning. Top dogs

once under my cowl have turned away. There are only so many bullets this old gun has, 

only so many threats I can make. I'm an old timer now. My threats falls on deaf ears, 

even when the threats are acted on. I have more blood on my hands now than ever. 

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As the sun falls behind the skyline I know my time has come. The time of shadows. When 

new kings strike, the opportune time. Wars are often won, empires conquered in what

just seems like a few moments. It's never really the case however. It was a long time

coming. He was always coming. Waiting for a weakness. A slow old dog is as good as a wounded one.

 

 

*footsteps approaching from rear*

 

 

 

 

I am no longer Mr. Los Santos.

It was a long battle for sure. But now it has come to the end.

Sun is setting down and we should all go to sleep now. Take a rest from a long fight.

Thanks for playing everyone!

Thanks to livejoker and the judges for volunteering to do this!

On a final note, remember, this isn't organised in any "official" manner - if you want to see a specific competition happen, then anyone can start it :santa:
