Rick Rubin, 'Gandalf,' Phil Robertson, James Harden, and Annie Jones battle to the death in a virtual competition called the 'No Shave Showdown.' The competition features each of their profiles and a minor backstory explaining their bearded cause. For instance, Rick Rubin hasn't shaved since he was 23 to pay tribute to the yogis he used to read about in childhood.

'Gandalf' is a fictional character from the 'Lord of the Rings' and has an epic beard. The most bizarre contestant is Annie Jones, part of P.T. Barnum's circus sideshow attraction as the 'Bearded Lady.'

This epic anti-shaving showdown is taking donations for prostate cancer research as a spin-off of the 'Movember' mustache. Upon visiting the page, the side bar lists each contestant and how many votes they've collected.
