Zac Efron : What is the Appeal?

Can someone please explain to me the appeal of Zac Efron?

When I was growing up the male icons were New Kids on the Block, Tommy Puett, Tommy Page, Richard Marx, but at least all of those looked remotely like men (or boys, at least).

This Efron person looks at best like a 50 yr old woman post surgery. It is way too freaky to look at him with a straight face. Has anyone been made to sit through High School Musical 2? There is a solo song there where he literally dances like a drag queen, striking all these 'Vogue' poses. Hilarious.

A more interesting question might be:

Why would someone have such an intense aversion to him?

Are these High School Musical movies as good as a real high school musical?

Yeah, I would say you're asking this question in the wrong forum. Can the mods please move this to the preteen girl forum? And remember, Chris Hanson is watching...

I don't know who this Zac dude is but at the concept of the New Kids on the Block being held up as the standard for manliness.

I'd wager there's no appeal if you're not a teenage girl. If you're not a teenage girl, or don't have a teenage girl in your house (as a daughter)..., and don't subscribe to US Weekly or Teen People, then it makes sense you wouldn't know about him.

You've seen him if you've seen Hairspray. He's the guy who causes Tracy to hear the bells.

Have you seen the pictures of the High School Musical girl? Well, this guy is the one who gets a piece of that in real life.

Yeah, and I am tapping Rachel Bilson's ass.

Zac would rather tap Ian McKellen's ass. I heard Zac "broke up" with Vanessa after the nude photos hit the Internet, probably because he realized she didn't have a dick.

Their "relationship" is nothing more than a publicity stunt to sell copies of High School Musical.

Nope, sure haven't. I stay away from that HSM nonsense. I saw five minutes of it, and thought it was five minutes of the dumbest programming in television history.

They had an article on him in Entertainment Weekly a few months back and they were saying he will have to do something to set himself apart from his cotton candy roles or he will end up just another teen heart throb that disappears in 3 years.
He is hiding the whole gay thing so it doesn't hurt his fan base. Much the way Clay Aiken does.

Like how Walt Disney forced Tommy Kirk to date Annette Funicello despite the fact that he would rather have been with Frankie Avalon?
