John McBain cleans up really nicely, doesn’t he?
I’m talking about the “Go Red Ball” on One Life To Live.
When he entered the scene wearing a tux, with his hair all fixed nice….and those blue, bedroom eyes…..(swooning).
And the way he sauntered in with those beautiful flowers and convinced Blair (Kassie DePaiva) – who was really ticked off at him – to go to the ball with him……It took my breath away!
John and Blair
I just love the way Michael Easton brings all the nuances to the character….the long, smoldering look in his eyes; the sexy thing he does with the sides of his mouth before he smiles…..
But the best qualities about John McBain aren’t about his looks.
It’s his intense drive to do the right thing.
His honesty, integrity- and, of course, his chivalry.
Who can resist chivalry in this day and age when – I hate to use a cliche – but it is dead, pretty much.
And the best scene for me in Thursday’s episode was at the end of the show, when McBain and Blair showed up at the ball at the same time as Todd and Tea. And, almost immediately the elevator opens revealing Wes and Marty.
The looks on their faces were priceless.
With Tea stating the obvious, “Now THIS is awkward!”

    The Go Red ball was great!! Altho I’m not a big John/Blair fan, I felt for Blair when John spent time checking out Marty so to speak (altho she didn’t have to call the cops on her!) Loved their dresses too!

    I have begun to dislike John McBain, he is becoming boring including his so called sexy romancing and kissing, it is all very predictable, even Jared Banks is better in the romance department. The actress who played the Evangeline character, Ms. Goldsberry apparently brought out the better acting skills in Mr. Easton as well as highlighted/enhanced his male attributes but, since her departure Easton has proved continually to be a stereotypic and boring actor. Even, the actor who plays the Jared Banks character is more interesting, because at least he really tries to live his role while performing it. Banks just needs to learn how to appropriately kiss for the camera.
