Everyone has facial hair, but some lucky souls are blessed with extra-powerful facial follicles that can carpet one’s chin and cheeks with a coarse-haired forest of masculinity.

To find out who amongst our stable of excellent hosts at SiriusXM Sports have the raw power capable of growing the most baller of beards we’ve teamed up with Cremo to host the “SiriusXM Best Beard Challenge 2018.” How does it work? It’s simple, we’re asking you, the plugged-in, social-loving listener of SiriusXM to choose who is growing the best beard for the next four weeks between your favorite hosts.

Before you vote, let’s take a look at our hosts:

Mike Babchik, defending Cremo Best Beard Challange champion (Mad Dog Sports Radio)

Mike Babchik is a loveable loser who some questionable souls have called the voice of the common man. However, Mike is anything from common. Babchik has a passion for talking sports, drinking beer and growing a mean beard. You can hear him on Morning Men every weekday morning from 6 to 10 am ET on Mad Dog Sports Radio.


Howard Bender (SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio)

Howard Bender is a fantasy sports player and an industry veteran whose work spans almost two decades. He is ready to take Babchik down and claim the Best Beard title, and he’s asking for your help to get it.


Steve Covino (Faction Talk) 

The pride of Montclair State, Steve Covino has been a fixture, along with his co-host Rich, on SiriusXM for years. The Yankees fan is really going to have to dig deep if he hopes to win the beard contest.


Rich Davis (Faction Talk) 

Self-admitted New York Mets fan, Davis is going toe-to-toe with his co-host Steve Covino in the beard contest. Who will win the hearts of the throngs of Covino and Rich fans?


Luke Thomas (Fight Nation) 

Luke is a leading voice and analyst in Mixed Martial Arts, and he has the biggest headstart on the rest of the crowd with that well-maintained, Big Man beard he’s sporting.
