Is it hot in here? Because Lenton’s Fittest Student Round One is fire

Feeling bad about yourself in lockdown? Prepare to feel even worse


Seeing as we are in unprecedented times it seems only fitting that there were an unprecedented amount of nominations for Lenton’s Fittest Student 2020.

There were nearly 600 nominations with a whopping seven of those for Joe Exotic. However, the decision was made to not include him in this article as to give the other contestants a chance. After 10 hours (and multiple bottles of wine) spent trawling through instagram we have narrowed it down to 20 contestants.

This is the first of four rounds so do not worry if you can’t see that hot guy you got with at Crisis you nominated in this round as there are still another three to come before the final.

The power is now all with you – the readers. Get voting and the top 2 contestants from each round will make it into the final before we crown Lenton’s Fittest Student 2020.

More pictures of the contestants can be found at The Tab Nottingham’s instagram!
