Singer-actor Axle Whitehead has won the 2009 Cleo Bachelor of the Year title.
Whitehead, now a Home and Away cast member, won over Channel [V] presenter Danny Clayton and So You Think You Can Dance choreographer ‘Nacho Pop.’
Bondi Rescue’s Tom Bunting won a Cleo hearts prize, voted by magazine staff.
Whitehead was dubbed the 2009 title winner at an invite event in Sydney last night, taking the ‘crown’ from 2008’s Jason Dundas from Getaway.
The magazine title, now 22 years old, is reader-voted and something of a nod to rising talent. Whitehead has certainly been re-building his career after a fumbled exposure at the ARIA Awards in 2006.
