Melbourne-based Craig Bascand’s tattooed and furry muscle has seen him successfully take out the Mr Australasia Bear 2010 contest, hosted by The Laird at the weekend.

The crowning of his hairy hotness marked the climax of VicBears Southern HiBearnation festival on Saturday night and was proceeded by BearDance later in the evening.

Bascand said he had met some amazing guys from Australia and New Zealand during the event and thanked fans for their comments and support over the whole week.

“Nights like last night makes me remember why I love Melbourne so much; so many hot, friendly guys,” he said.

Sydney was represented by the recently crowned Mr Harbour City Bear 2o10,  Justin Hyde.
