100 hot guys – 2011

This year, more so even than years previous, I want to reorder Buddy TV’s annual TV’s 100 Sexiest Men list. But I will list the boys according to their ranking.

Also, as a side note, I suspect Buddy TV hired a little sci fi-er because who else watches anything on Syfy, let alone Haven, Eureka and Alphas?

Ranking legend:
Numbers on the left are their placement this year #1
Numbers on the right in parenthesis are their rank last year (5)
An asterix in the parenthesis indicates they didn’t make my list last year.

Comment if you find someone new on this list you’ve never noticed before.

Hugh Dancy 2011

#83 – Hugh Dancy, The Big C

Apparently, he doesn’t have hair in The Big C (and I wouldn’t know, I don’t watch it) but he’s so much cuter like this. And also, British. I’ve seen him in enough movies, I get to include him without actually watching the show.

Lucas Bryant HAVEN Season 1 2011

#72 – Lucas Bryant, Haven

I totally thought I was going to have to make him an honorable mention because I didn’t think anyone else watched Haven. But no, it’s not just me.

Austin Nichols 2011

#69- Austin Nichols, One Tree Hill (31)

Mark Paul Gosselaar FRANKLIN AND BASH cropped 2011

#61 – Mark Paul Gosselar, Franklin and Bash

Jason Omara TERRA NOVA 2011

#59 – Jason O’Mara, Terra Nova

I wasn’t sure if I wanted Jason on my list or not. But I do enjoy the trailer for One for the Money so I figured why not.

Matt Czuchry 2011

#58 – Matt Czuchry, The Good Wife

I was a bit shocked that it’s taken Matt so long to make this list – all the way from his days on Gilmore Girls, through Veronica Mars I totally should have included him earlier. maybe if I watched the show more I’d have thought of it…

Shane West 2011

#49 – Shane West, Nikita (71)

Niall Matter EUREKA 3x10 2011

#47 – Niall Matter, Eureka

Niall was totally on my list last year – it’s good to see him progress by becoming “official”

Chace Crawford 2011

#44 – Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl

Jesse Spencer 2011

#42 – Jesse Spencer, House (62)

Matt Lanter 2011

#40 – Matt Lanter, 90210 (40)

Paul Wesley VAMPIRE DIARIES Promo 2011

#38 – Paul Wesley, The Vampire Diaries (18)

really?! this not nearly a good enough number for Mr. Wesley

Shemar Moore cropped 2011

#37 – Shemar Moore, Criminal Minds (45)

Jared Padalecki 2011

#36 – Jared Padalecki, Supernatural (15)

This is better than he did in 2009 when he was 41, but still too high a ranking. Maybe they think they have to give him a number big enough to support his height (yes, I made a giant joke, what of it?)

Ryan Kwanten 2011

#28 – Ryan Kwanten, True Blood (27)

Ryan Mcpartlin 2011

#27 – Ryan McPartlin, Chuck (28)

Joshua Jackson 2011

#19 – Joshua Jackson, Fringe (9)

Jensen Ackles SUPERNATURAL Season 3 Promo 2011

#16 – Jensen Ackles, Supernatural (14)

Michael Trucco FAIRLY LEGAL 2011

#12 – Michael Trucco, Fairly Legal

another of my honorable mentions from last year! I’m suddenly shocked there weren’t more guys from Battlestar Galactica on the 2009 list. where was their little sci fi-er then?

Gabriel Macht SUITS 2011

#10 – Gabriel Macht, Suits

Alex Olaughlin 2011

#9 – Alex O’Loughlin, Hawaii Five-O (2)

Christopher Gorham COVERT AFFAIRS cropped 2011

#5 – Christopher Gorham, Covert Affairs (37)

Matt Bomer 2011

#1 – Matt Bomer, White Collar (5)

And of course the men that should have been on their list but weren’t in no particular order:

Bradley James DAMIEN 1x06 2011

Bradley James, Merlin

I know it’s a BBC show, but he’s totally worth an international exception, right?!

Will Estes credit John Russo cropped 2011

Will Estes, Blue Bloods

This isn’t a great picture of him, but trust me he’s cute. Or watch Blue Bloods, either way.

Teddy Sears 2011

Teddy Sears, Blue Bloods

I first noticed Terry on Blue Bloods but once I went to look him up I realized he’d been all over tv in 2011. Which means there’s a good chance he’ll be on the “official” 2012 list and not just my “should have been” section

Martin Henderson OFF THE MAP 2011

Martin Henderson, Off the Map

Neil Jackson Album Cover 2011

Neil Jackson, Make It Or Break It (65)

He was totally on their list last year. I don’t know who bumped him off but there several of their choices who were *not* sexier than Neil.

Jamie Dornan ONCE UPON A TIME 1x02 2011

Jamie Dornan, Once upon a Time

David Anders ALIAS 2011

David Anders, Vampire Diaries and Once Upon A Time

As long as David is speaking with a British accent, he deserves to be on any list

    you have really missed out on one.. Charlie Hunnam. from Sons of Anarchy.. I think you should use your remote and check out the FX channel.

    most of those guys are not even as hot as Charlie is.

    just sayin!

  2. Cat

    Ok, first thing’s first: you get UBER accolades for incorporating Sasha from Make it or Break It because that show makes me so happy. Second, Shamar Moore and Pacey both deserve the vote from me. Third….I totally only knew like six people on this list. I have no little sy-fy girl in me.

    • aj

      does it detract from the accolades at all that before he was Sasha he was prominent in the Stargate universe? Also, yes Pacey and Shemar totally deserve your vote! I was a bit concerned I wouldn’t give you enough to vote for. Speaking of which, even if you don’t know them, they’re great pictures, right?!

    You only had Ryan Kwanten from True Blood, where’s my hottie Viking Vamp Alexander Skarsgård or best yet the fabulous Joe Manganiello. He really makes you want every night to be a full moon. But I go for the scruffy men over the slight pretty boys any day. Seriously, you need to look up Joe Manganiello. Its like why have Apolo when you can have Sam.

  4. Dahlia

    Um, Jamie Dornan is gorgeous and so deserves to be sleeping with Emma instead of the wicked queen on ONCE. It is hard to pass over my eternal favorite Ryan Kwantan though. If only I didn’t know how short he was. Oh, and I will forever be in love with Michael Trucco – please tell me you saw his guest spot on Psych this year.

    • aj

      yes! to everything you said about Jamie Dornan. I might have had a slightly snide tweet about him that might or might not have (but totally did) reference Shawn Ryan.

      That’s why you can vote for more than one guy at a time – you vote for Ryan and Jared Padalecki and pretend Ryan has Jared’s height 😉

      I haven’t seen Trucco’s guest spot on Psych yet, but I’m trapped in a hulu delay so it’s only a matter of time.

    I can tell when you label some of these guys hot your are truly a ‘geek’, because many of them would only be “hot” in the eyes of one. Many of them are, but some are the best friends who you realize your attracted to years into your friendship when they finally start to mature.
    I would have had a completely different list. You did overlook Robert Pattinson, but he’s on enough other lists I can forgive it. Other than that this list is pretty good (if you cut it in half.)

    • aj

      I question your definition of “hot”
      It’s totally fair to say they appeal to geeks because they’re on geeky shows. I’m not arguing with that. And I can concede you might not appreciate how sexy some of these guys are if you haven’t watched their shows (which is a big part of the reason I only include guys from shows I watch).
      Most of the ones you think are “hot” are actually the best friend almost romances (Hugh Dancy, Matt Czuchry and Christopher Goram, Joshua Jackson) though still hot guys. The rest are badass, sexy guys.

      ETA: I think we’re suffering from a clarification of terms. I think when you say best friend you mean pretty and I hear soft. If sci-fi has taught us anything, it’s that pretty men can be badass.

    And fyi I would have totally cast Ryan McPartlin as Carlyle (w/ his darker hair)….
    And while I’m here you left off Cam Gigandet (who should have been Jasper even though he made a wonderful James)…(and yes I’m a little too into Twilight)…

    • aj

      “hottest guys on TV” 😉
      Should I do a separate movie list?

      but I totally agree on Ryan McPartlin. That would have been brilliant casting! And that Cam would have made a better Jasper.

  7. kel

    it’s terrible, i realize how much i am “out of the loop” on the tv boys. i keep track of movie boys so much more. so i don’t even know many of these men!

    -hugh dancy i go back and forth on. he’s hot in an adorable sort of way to me.
    -mark paul gosselar, yes…i adore franklin and bash. though i can see why most would prefer mark, is it strange that i like breckin meyer better?
    -shane west, i can never quite decide.
    -niall matter is adorable. he looks like a cross between chris evans and ryan gosling.
    -chace crawford…yes, please and thank you very much.
    -jesse spencer, i get why…but i’m not a fan.
    -paul wesley yes, though i’m glad ian somerhalder was higher ranked. love ian. those eyes.
    -jared padalecki, definitely. and i think that’s, if anything, too low a ranking. but that’s just me.
    -ryan kwanten…i’ve never watched true blood, but yes.
    -joshua jackson i don’t get.
    -jensen ackles…YES
    -ian somerhalder…YES
    -michael trucco…i can’t help it. BSG!
    -matt bomer…you can’t help that either. eyes.
    -bradley james, definitely in that picture.
    -will estes…i even looked up other pictures, but i still say not so much.

    all the others, mleh. but that’s just me. i won’t really get started on the boys i think are missing… 😉 but fun list nonetheless!!

    • aj

      – hugh dancy – yes is cute more than hot. but he was in so many Bruckheimer movies and is really nice so I can’t help but like him.
      – breckin meyer – yes, that is strange 😉
      – niall matter is totally the reason I started watching Eureka
      – chace crawford, you’re welcome
      – ryan kwanten – i’ve never watched True Blood either. But he was a really hot Australian surfer in Summerland so that’s how he keeps ending up on the list
      – joshua jackson was pacey!
      – will estes is probably more adorable than anything, but no one else watches Blue Bloods so i though he should get some notice

      all the others mleh?! ok, granted all the others are too pretty for you, so your forgiven but here me out anyway.
      Lucas Bryant I think you totally have to watch Haven to get. Because he seems kind of awkward looking, but the camera catches him well on tv.
      and Matt Czuchry, did you never watch Gilmore Girls? you need to watch Gilmore Girls.
      Did you see Ryan McPartlin’s eyes in that picture? They don’t call him Captain Awesome for nothing 😉
      and Jamie Dornan. If you come over from the dark side on any of your unmentionables it should be for Jamie Dornan.
