Donny took to Twitter asking his fans if he was due for a close shave and a new profile or if it’d be best to hang on this neck warmer. So far the results have been overwhelmingly one sided.

The results so far has Donny’s followers supporting the move to “Shear The Beard” at more than a 4:1 rate over keeping it around much longer. Some Big Brother fans have even suggested Donny go for the trim as a charity fundraiser which could tie in nicely with his “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” event.

What do you think? Should we ‘Fear It’ or ‘Shear It’? Vote in our poll below, take a walk down memory lane with Donny and his wild beard, and share your thoughts.
