We're not here to tell you if People made the right choice or the wrong choice, because let's face it, we'll stare into those baby blues all damn day.
What we find interesting is his parted 'do—it reminds us of some of our favorite throwback crushes of all time.
They say history repeats itself, and if that means a return to the hair gel-induced sexual awakenings so many experienced in the mid to late '90s, consider us officially on board!
Home Improvement star Zachery Ty Bryan always managed to have a few strands ever-so-lightly grazing his forehead (just waiting for us to push them aside for him!) And who can forget those perfect, bottled highlights?
#NEVERFORGET that Ryan Gosling is a former butt-cut boy himself! The Young Hercules star was like "sure, I'll play a mythological hero, but first let me win over every 13-year-old girl with a pulse."
Our boy Dawson, aka James Van Der Beek, may be the closest match to Chris' look. He's got that boy next door vibe mixed with a sexy smoulder that we have never been able to resist!
Sure, Zachery Ty Bryan had the blond highlights, but don't forget his little on-screen bro Jonathan Taylor Thomas. The cuteness is real!

When Nick Carter joined the Backstreet Boys, he wasn't just a hunky boy-bander, he was beautiful. Like it's almost not right how pretty this man is. We don't know if we should get weak in the knees or ask him for flat-iron tips.
Last, but not least, please look at this photo of the cast of Boy Meets World. Thank you for your time.
