Reality TV star turned fashion designer and future lawyer Rob Kardashian counted down to 2012 at Tryst in the Wynn on Saturday night and wins the 2011 New Year’s Eve Award for Best Dressed Man in a black tuxedo and bow tie.
Rob walked the red carpet, then took over the stage for the official countdown to midnight as DJ Dave Fogg manned the decks. Rob flew solo, not sharing the final moment with one special lady, but rather 50 young beauties who pushed and pulled to get inches closer to him.
As the minutes trickled away, he took over the count from 10 down to 2012's arrival, wishing everyone a Happy New Year as confetti cannons exploded and fireworks exploded above Tryst’s waterfall. Rob was presented with a cake from Gimme Some Sugar that replicated the “Dancing With the Stars” trophy and naming him Tryst Champion of 2012.
Although members of his reality TV family hosted at other Strip venues (sister Kim Kardashian at Tao in the Venetian and sister Kourtney Kardashian at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at the Paris), Rob had 20 of his friends in for his big night, some of whom he said he has known since junior high and high school.
Rob revealed his New Year’s resolution is to be healthier, focusing more on what he’s eating and his workout regimen that started on the ABC hit series in which he just finished runner-up with pro partner Cheryl Burke. Thanks to Erik Kabik for his photo gallery of the handsome Kardashian man.
