Who is Eugene Cresto? Regular readers have seen him several times in Friendly Encounters with many celebrities. The guy is everywhere meeting everyone. I meet a ton of celebs, but Eugene has beaten me to some several times.
At the recent Flashback Weekend, Eugene pulled a big blade on me. Perhaps I beat him to one too many celebrities? Perhaps he wanted to take over this site (Eugene's Beat?)?
He's a good dude, often taking his two daughters with him to meet the celebrities. (Hmm maybe he just found very cheap labor to take all of the pictures?) If you follow him on social media, you'd see he loves his kids and they have a lot of fun together.
I always look forward to seeing Eugene at these events, even when he threatens to slit my throat. It's always fun to see which celebs he is meeting. Most of the time, we run parallel courses. (Great minds thinking alike?).
Eugene might not be an "official" celebrity, but neither am I. Still, we both get a fair amount of recognition at these events. Maybe Eugene and I should set up our own both. Who wouldn't want a dual-photo op with Eugene and Johngy?
