Channing Tatum's 2009 BIGGEST Fan Is...

Channing Tatum Official Site

Thanks to all of the Fabulous Fans around the world who entered the 2nd Annual Channing Tatum Unwrapped BIGGEST Fan Contest and took the time to vote for the Top 3 BIGGEST Fans!!!

To recap, I initially chose Channing's Top 10 BIGGEST Fans from all of your entries. Then, CTU readers voted to choose Channing's Top 3 BIGGEST Fans. The top 3 fans have won an exclusive autographed drawing of Channing Tatum!!!

Like last year, Chan's awesome family made the very difficult final choice, so I again have to thank them for taking the time to help me with this contest. Without further ado, Channing's 2009 BIGGEST Fan is...

Name: Brandi

City: Deepwater

State: New Jersey / USA

Age: 32

Social Networking:
MYSPACE (Personal), MYSPACE (Channing Tatum Fan Site)

Why Did Channing's Family Choose Brandi?: Channing Tatum's mother Kay had this to say, "Our choice from the "Top Three" would be Brandi from New Jersey. All of Chan's fans are amazing... it is so hard to chose. They are all "Tops" in our hearts. We know Brandi has been a loyal fan from the very beginning and it really shows. We are so truly blessed to have such wonderful people that care so much."

Favorite Channing Tatum Picture and Why?: I have many fave photos of Chan but the ones that stick out the most for me are the ones of him and Jenna. I think they are the most beautiful couple. In the photo that I chose you can just see the way he's looking at her, like shes the most beautiful girl in the world..so much love in his eyes. Shes just laughing and smiling and you can tell that this man lights up her entire world! Its just a beautiful picture!!

Favorite Channing Tatum Movie and Why?: Although I love them all, I have to say Step Up. Its the first movie I ever saw with Chan in it. My best friend wanted to go see it and I wasn't really interested but I saw it had this really hot guy in it so I agreed to go. When Chan's opening scene came on, my mouth dropped to the floor! That was the moment for me. Before I got home that day, I stopped and bought Shes the Man! Besides this being the movie I first discovered Channing, I love the story line, he and Jenna had awesome chemistry in it and its just a really great dance movie.

Favorite Channing Tatum Scene and Why?: Definitely the scene in Stop-loss with Channing and Ryan in the cemetary after Tommy's funeral. I think Channing really did an incredible job in this scene. When he's crying and pleading with Brandon to explain things to him, it's a very powerful scene and Channings character sucks you in and you sit there feeling every bit of emotion he's feeling.

I'm going with the same quote I chose last year and that is the one from Step Up with Tyler and Nora back stage. "I'm fighting for something that's real for the first time in my life" It's my fave, because at this point in the movie, I had fallen in love with Tyler's character and with him and Nora as a couple. Tyler finally realizes he has something really great going for him. I think alot of people, including myself have actually been in a similar postion before so we can relate to how hes feeling in that moment.

Favorite Upcoming Channing Tatum Movie and Why?: Oh definitely Fighting and Dear John! Hands Down!! I have to be honest about Fighting besides loving the storyline I have to say that Channing looks sooo hot in the Fighting Trailer, everything from his buff bod to his hair, I love him with all that hair on his head!! Its also the movie that Q from CTU got to sit in on for a day. All of us CTU readers got an inside view on her day on set so that makes me even more anxious to see this film. Dear John is a film Im extremely excited to see because its the first "romance" film Channing is going to be in. Its a really different role from what we are uses to seeing him play and besides that I love the book!!

Have you ever met Channing?: I'm sad to say no I have not met Channing. My best friend and I tried back in October when Channing was filming Dear John in SC. We took a long weekend and drove down to Isle of Palms to celebrate my birthday. Filming hadn't started yet when we were there. We knew Channing was in the area but it would have been like finding a needle in a hay stack. We did find out that around the 21st of October Channing filmed on the beach of Isle of Palms. We missed him by about two weeks :( I'm still holding out hope that my moment will come on day.

Why are you a Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan?: In the beginning, I had this "idea" of who I thought Channing was as a person. Over the last two and a half years I have found that everything I thought he was, is exactly who he is. He's down to earth, extremely funny, caring, sweet and respectful of his fans and anyone around him. He takes the time to sign autographs, takes pictures with fans, chats with them etc... He always seems to be on top of the world. Being an avid CTU reader has really made me see that Channing is a real person inside and out. He doesn't fall into that "Hollywood trap", he stays grounded and continues to be who he is regardless of all the pressures out there. He doesn't let Hollywood change him in anway. For that I think Channing deserves everything good that life has to offer. I also have to say the same about Jenna even though this is a "Channing fan" contest. She's adorable and I love them both! I wish he and Jenna all the happiness in the world! They both deserve every bit of it. This is why I am a Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan!!
In addition to the autographed photo and at least a year's worth of bragging rights, Brandi will also win the following prizes:
If you didn't make it this year, no worries. We will be holding this same contest every January. Like Brandi, make sure to join the fan club and get or stay involved in the CTU community to increase your chances of winning.

Also, I will be saving all of this year's entries and may use some of them for future Fabulous Fan Spotlights on the site, so be on the lookout for those each month starting in March.
