What Zac Efron, Justin Bieber Have in Common Besides Selena Gomez

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on May 25, 2012 0 Comments

Justin Bieber and Zac Efron have a lot in common. Both became famous as teen idols—Zac as the star of High School Musical, and Justin as the pop star sensation sans pareil. And both are still teen idols, even though Zac is no longer a teenager. Even more interestingly, both have been loved by former Disney darling, Selena Gomez, albeit in very different ways. Lastly, both have grown weired—er—interesting-looking mustaches.

Long before La Gomez became one half of the second most famous couple in the world, she had, by her own admission, a tremendous crush on The Lucky One star. In fact, La Gomez has admitted in interviews that she used to fantasize Zac was her husband. Ouch, poor Biebs. It would be extremely interesting to know what Selena would think of Zac’s new mustache. She didn’t think much of the Biebs’ facial hair. Not that his attempts were very impressive. The most the Boyfriend singer ever managed to muster on his upper lip was a thin line of sparse fuzz. Ouch.

Alas, when it comes to mustache cultivation, Zac Efron seems to be chasing Selena’s man. As you can see by clicking here, Zac’s ‘stache, while somewhat fuller than JB’s, nevertheless has that weird, scraggly look—sort of like an SNL parody version of a 70s porn star.

In a Bop and Tiger Beat poll, respondents were asked a single simple question: “What do you think of Zac’s mustache?” Alas, an overwhelming 92.82 percent majority responded “Eww. Shave it fast.” Only 7.18 percent voted: “It’s handsome.”

Poor Zac Efron. Wonder what they would have said about Justin Bieber? Better yet, wonder whose mustache Selena Gomez would consider the lesser of 2 evils—er—the hotter?

What do you think?
