Television hotties

Have you ever watched a television show and thought "wow, I wish I could meet a guy like that!" or perhaps you just wanted to jump into the screen and smother the character with kisses? Er, I mean....give him a friendly hug...ahem, anyway.

I have.

Just out of pure entertainment, and because I know you have spent sleepless nights wondering, I decided to share with you my top five television crushes.

(Warning: These are random. I am not a typical girl.)


Brandon Walsh (Beverly Hills, 90210)



Oh, Brandon, Brandon, Brandon. The nicest boy in Beverly Hills. This Minnesota native is just an honest, wholesome boy-next-door who can make your heart melt with a smile, but also race with a kiss. What girl wouldn't want to gaze into those liquid blue eyes all day? Plus, he just wants to do the right thing, gosh darn it. In Every Freaking Episode. Because all that matters in life is that everything is fair. Sigh.
Bonus: His family is rich.
Drawback: Would you be able to concentrate on Mr. Nice Guy when his hot bad-ass friend Dylan is around?


Jack Tripper (Three's Company)


This adorable chef is so goofy and hilarious. I've seen every single episode of this show (my parents own the DVD collection) and in each one Jack makes me giggle like a 13-year-old school girl. How can someone so handsome and funny be such a sweetheart? Well, it helps that in real life the actor, John Ritter, was said to be pretty comparable to his famous character. So not much acting was required. That makes me love Jack Tripper even more!
Bonus: He's a man who COOKS. Need I say more?
Drawback: He lives with two gorgeous girls.


Mike Delfino (Desperate Housewives)


Forget the gossip. Forget the fact that Gabrielle Solis is my soulmate. Forget the delicious scandals. Mike Delfino is the main reason I want to move to Wisteria Lane. Move over, Susan. He's mine. Well, in my dreams. Haha. But since I can't be on the show, I guess she can have him. But what a lucky, lucky woman she is. I personally don't see what harm there would be in letting him do each episode shirtless. But apparently ABC doesn't agree and they've ignored my petition. Shame on them.
Bonus: He will never cheat on you.
Drawback: He's a plumber.


Jim Halpert (The Office)



Every time this paper salesman gives a wary or amused glance to the camera, our eyes meet and my heart skips a beat. He's the most normal guy at Dunder Mifflin and probably one of the silliest and cutest guys on television these days in general. And puh-lease, don't tell me you haven't spent restless nights fantasizing that it was you, not HER, he was marrying...right? You have done that? Right???
Bonus: Your parents will love him.
Drawback: Pam.


Andy Griffith (The Andy Griffith Show)


Don't laugh. I know he's like a bazillion years old right now, but back in 1962 this guy was quite the catch. Plus, who wouldn't want to cuddle on the porch with a dashing southern gentleman, while he plays the guitar and Aunt Bea brings you a cup of freshly squeezed lemonade?
Bonus: He has an adorable and well-behaved son named Opie. If you're going to be a stepmother, that's the kid you want.
Drawback: Andy's closest companion, Barney, is kind of a nut job.


So what television studs (or female hotties) are YOU crushing on?

First of all, as an avid original "90210" watcher (granted, several years too late), all I can say is Dylan's looks + Brandon's personality = DREAM DATE.
Andy Griffith is awesome, don't listen to anyone who says he isn't, haha. I continue to be stuck on Dawson from "Dawson's Creek" and Jess from "Gilmore Girls," although Chace Crawford is possibly the most gorgeous man alive on "Gossip Girl."

Heather Taylor said...

Umm, I think we all want to be Jim's girlfriend, that boy is ultra cute and a big sweetheart!
Me, I'm all about Don Draper on Mad Men. Jesus, Jon Hamm is hot. If Sterling Cooper existed today, I would most certainly do whatever it took to be a secretary there!

Mouthwash said...

I used to watch 90210!!! (although i'm not a fan of the newer one)

great list! So much fun. hehe

Charmalade said...

Hahaha, what a fun post! Come on, we've all totally crushed on that one (or for me, manyyyy) fictional character. I like how your list is pretty unconventional (except for, of course, Jim), it keeps it interesting. :)

Toast with Charmalade

Nikosmommy said...

Intersting list!! You have some seriously diverse tastes...which means you're open to so much MORE. Lurve it!

Amelia is... said...

Burt Farlander (aka John Krasinski) from Away We Go. Very cute and absolutely committed to his partner. Seriously funny and would make you laugh all day every day.
Bonus: Funny and sweet.
Drawback: pregnant girlfriend.

coolboy said...

great post i dont watch tv lol

Leah said...

Hahaha! We'll be neighbors in Wisteria Lane... I love Mike Delfino too. Have a great week ahead. xoxo

perfectionishuman said...

Mike Delfino.. I SHOULD find him hot, but I don't .. this confuses me so much! My all time tv crush(es) are the Winchester brothers from Supernatural.. pure love.

Nadine said...

Oh my god, Jennifer, this is awesome! Love it.
My current crush (if we ignore real people who were on TV in the Olympics, cough, Shaun White & Apolo Ohno, cough) is Sidney from the UK show "Skins" - total nerd thing going on. Also, Mark Brendanawicz on "Parks and Recreation." He's not always awesome, but I can see myself having a Leslie-sized crush on him.

dancinginchiffon said...

i too used to have a crush on Brandon hahaha!

Robin said...

I love that you picked Andy Griffith!

Talk Pretty To Me said...

HAHAHAHAH I love this post. Your picks are too funny. 90210 I know exactly what you mean. AND JIM! He's ridiculously dorky cute. I love him. But I have always had a "TV crush" on Patrick Dempsey. Oh that hair. They don't call him McDreamy for nothing. Or how about Chace Crawford? Hello gorgeous. I think he is a real life ken doll.

Kristin said...

Duuuuuuude, Jim. Oh how I love Jim. Not Krazinskin...Nope I only have eyes for Halpert. I prefer to think he exists in real life. Have you ever seen Sons of Anarchy? One word...Jax...OMG!

SogniSorrisi said...

My current TV crush is Sawyer on LOST.

Inspiration in Italy said...

Ha! I love this post Jennifer! I used to have the biggest crush on Shawn from Boy Meets World, hahaha. I was also one of those girls who had a crust on JTT from Home Improvement....

Leia said...

Yum.

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

ahh my recent crush has been Jim Halpert too! but now that he's having a child with Pam, my interest has cooled.
my first TV crush was Kirk Cameron...oh baby!
xoxo alison

Tangerine Fairy said...

OMG Brandon Walsh!!!! Whatever happened to him..and of course Jim from the office...Anyone can have a crush on him after seeing their wedding episode!!!

Sherin said...

I have such a thing for Jim Halpert. He is actually my dream guy! Why can't all guys be like him!!!

Jaime said...

Jim jim jim! Love him. Can't wait to see the birth on this week's ep!

Jaime said...

Well not actually see it, but you know what i mean :)

Barry said...

I just about melt everytime I watch Nina Dobrev in The Vampire Diaries. Let's conveniently forget for a minute that she's young enough to be my daughter. Nobody can dispute the fact that she's drop-dead gorgeous.
And she was raised in Toronto, so we're practically neighbours. (Yeah right).

I always thought Jennifer Love Hewitt was a hottie. Elisha Cuthbert's yummy too.

SL said...

I left a comment on one of your other posts too - check it out.

I love your blog sweetie - amazingness.

LOVE

Some Girl said...

Basically, all of the guys from Boy Meets World. SIGH.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Currently, I am crushing on no one. However, when I was about twelve I was crushing on Erik von Detten (during his time on the Disney show "So Weird"). Oh. My. Gosh. I truly thought that I was going to marry him someday. Then I completely changed my mind. I don't think I've had a television crush since then!! :)

MissKellie said...

Jim Halpert is my ULTIMATE tv crush, oh my gosh! I compare real-life guys to Jim.
My other major tv crushes- Seth from The O.C and Jess from the Gilmore Girls. And Shawn from Boy Meets World was my crush when I was growing up! :)
I have problems finding guys that I like in real life because none of them are nearly as cute as tv characters! Haha! :D

Pratishtha Durga said...

Vanilla said...

Hi lovely, I've passed an award to you :)

Romany said...

Omg I completely agree with Jim from the Office! And Brandon, but I must confess I've never watched 90210, so I guess that's a drawback for ME lol...
I'm a big Jon Hamm fan, from Mad Men. And I always love Mr Big from Sex and the City. I guess I like that whole 'suave' thing haha.
Hilarious post, love it!

A Whimsical Girl Named Debbie said...

Dylan from "90210" was my crush. I thought he was sooo hot! That was in my phase of loving "bad boys". I hope you're doing well, sweetie.
