KUSA - The Exdo Events Center was on fire Saturday night as a panel of celebrity judges assessed which firefighters brought the most heat to 2014 Colorado Firefighter Calendar tryouts.

Proceeds supported the burn Center at the Colorado Children's Hospital. Some women paid as much as $2,500 to spread oil on firefighters' chests.

Numerous firefighters danced on-stage during the event - many of them were shirtless.

Judges included reality TV couple Ryan and Trista Sutter, the Denver Post's Paige Montgomery and 9NEWS meteorologist Becky Ditchfield.

"I think I lost some male Twitter followers by posting photos of the event," Ditchfield said.

One of the questions Ditchfield asked prospective firefighters was: "I do weather in the backyard for 9NEWS. What sorts of things do you do in your backyard?"

Though total proceeds from the event have not yet been finalized, organizers said this year's event was more successful than in years past.

"These men and women represent one of the noblest professions and the calendar serves as a tribute to firefighters and the people they serve," the Colorado Firefighter Calendar website reads.
