As it’s Max George from The Wanted’s birthday we’re treating you to ANOTHER ‘5 Things’ piece today, and this time it’s all about the birthday boy! There are many, many, MANY things that we admire about Mr. George but we’ve had to scale it down to just five because, well, we’d still be here this time next year if we didn’t!
Way back in 2006, when there were only three judges and before The Wanted or The Saturdays (Mollie King also auditioned!) existed, our Max braved Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne, and Simon Cowell to audition for The X Factor. Unfortunately for Max, days before his audition he fell down the stairs and broke his arm meaning in his big TV debut, he was wearing a sling. The sling didn’t bring bad news in the audition room though, and Max was sent through with three yesses!
2. He loves being part of a good boyband!
Unfortunately The X Factor didn’t work out for Max and he was sent packing a bootcamp. But before the audition for The Wanted, Max had one more near-miss avenue to go down and it was called, erm, Avenue! Joining Jonny Lloyd, Scott Clarke, Ross Candy and, wait… IS THAT ANDY FROM LAWSON? Yes, Andy Brown, Max earned a top 50 smash with the single ‘Last Goodbye’ before splitting in April 2009.
He certainly isn’t camera shy, even when he’s completely naked! Max has often featured as our Daily Nipple Pic and we even posted a special birthday pic of Max in his birthday suit here! When he was part of Avenue, he took to the cover of AXM’s Naked Issue and claiming that he had the biggest *you know what* of the band! We wonder if that is still the case in The Wanted?
Like us, Max obviously appreciates a hot boyband member and in an early interview with The Wanted, he answered the question “If I was a girl…” with the answer “I’d day everyone in my band… and Robert!” We’re not too sure who Robert is but we’re happy that he can tell he is 1/5 of a very yummy boyband!
If you even need another reason why we love Max George so much then it has to purely be the fact that he’s a member of The Wanted! Since 2010, The Wanted have been infecting the charts with some super catchy tunes and are gearing up to release their third – yes, their third already – album later this year. Let’s hope some more hits are coming our way!
Happy Birthday Max!
