How is it possible that they ALL look like they've been Photoshopped into that picture? Terrible.

I'll have to guess the nerdy glasses guy is in charge. He's the only one with a driver's license.

I'm not really sure who is in charge here. Never seen a Pop band so clean cut and neat.

Therefore their image consultant must be in charge, since none of them can make a decision for themselves.

I think the guy in back, who is sort of in the middle, because he has his hands around two of the other guys in this bizarre fatherly/ authority type gesture. The guy up front is the rogue member though. Nobody controls him!

in this picture, i couldn't make up my mind based on facial expression and general demeanor, so i'm going by clothing. guy on left is at least "in charge" of the thermostat, forcing the other three to bundle up, so i'll vote for him.

p.s. beckeye is correct that the photoshoppiness is strong in this image.

A housemartin is a small bird that flies around most of the day catching insects on the wing. They're pretty and colorful and take a lot of the mosquitoes out of the air. If you happen upon a nest of housemartins, it's easy to tell who's in charge. It'll be the one with the nicest track suit.

Standing on the right, with his hands draped on the seated guy. He's the one.
