VIDEO: Fabio and Old Spice Guy to Duel Mano a Mano in El Baño

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Um, remember yesterday when Fabio—that 90s-era Harlequin-book cover model beefcake guy—challenged Old Spice spokesman Isaiah Mustafa to a duel? Today, Mustafa strikes back with a video accepting Fabio's challenge. The duel—which has been hilariously named Mano a Mano in El Baño—will kick off today at noon ET live on the Old Spice YouTube channel. We predict lots of posturing, smack-talking in deep voices, and maybe some slapping. We wonder if Fabio's hair is off-limits.
