Free Beer asked the guys to see how they thought they would score on GQ’s recent poll to discover what made up the Ideal Man. None of the guys thought they would do very well.

Steve actually gave himself the most credit, predicting that he would hit more of the categories than the other guys. Zane predicted that he would goose egg the whole thing.

Here’s the full results of the survey:
