You’re more likely to recognise Steve Allain by voice rather than face, but my god isn’t he handsome?

About seven years ago, Steve Allain sat at the helm of Stab’s editorial team when it was based in Bondi overseeing the Stab in the Dark production with Dane Reynolds among other things.

These days, Steve runs his own magazine Moist, Bec Bar in Sao Paulo, and has sunk his teeth into being a trusted and responsible DILF that we regularly call upon whenever we need help working in Portuguese – such as in this year’s SITD with Italo Ferreira which he produced and narrated.

Here are his Betonline.AG picks for the Brazil event winners.

  • Mens: Gabriel Medina, Filipe Toledo, Yago Dora with Sammy Pupo as a dark horse
