Time passes, seasons change, exciting things lie forgotten as the friendship between George Bush and Vladimir Putin, but epochal events tick over quietly in the background, waiting for their moment of resurgence. This seems to be what's happened with our six sexiest bankers competition. We ran the competition two months ago and had forgotten about it. Not so, the voting public.
It's come to our attention that Guilherme Lopes (seen below), has had a sudden surge of votes, thereby displacing the previous winner, Khamran Ali, from the top slot. Guilherme has suddenly achieved an impressive 608 votes in total (versus Ali's 568).
How did this happen? "The last time I looked I was in last place," said an astonished Lopes. "How many votes does the person in second place have?" he added.
Despite Lopes' professed surprise, we understand he may have been soliciting support from clients and colleagues, one of whom informed us he'd received an email requesting that he express his support for the sultry Brazilian.
