Disclaimer: if you are one of those serious TV viewers who takes your TV shows very seriously, the following article is seriously not for you.
We here at Watch With Kristin are huge Game of Thrones fans and often find ourselves in heated discussions over who will ultimately be sitting on the Iron Throne, who Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) real mother is, who we'd like to see slap Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) next, you know, totally normal things.
Our latest battle? Who's the hottest man in Westeros. Superficial? Yes, but hey, we're not scientists, we're TV lovers and it's not our fault the HBO hit's male population doesn't offend our eyes.
We couldn't come to a final decision, but narrowed it down to six contenders and we're leaving it to you to crown Westeros' finest...
Note: Dearly departed characters, like Ned Stark and Drogo (RIP, boos!), were not included in our VID (very important discussion).
Gendry (Joe Dempsie): Why hello there, Gendry! Thank you for coming out to play in season two. While Gendry made a few quick but memorable appearances in the first season, he really caught our attention in last Sunday's hour, thanks to his burgeoning friendship with Arya (Maisie Williams). In fact, Gendry was downright adorable in the scenes, and GOT is never adorable!
Jaime Lannister (Nikloaj Coster-Waldau): Is it just us, or is Jaime getting hotter the dirtier—as in, covered in mud, cuts and bruises—he gets in captivity?
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage): He's the wittiest guy in Westeros. And according to Ros (Esmé Bianco), he knows how to use that clever tongue in the sack, too.
Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen): We won't lie: We'd be totally OK with Jorah and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) getting together, but we admire her willpower. We wouldn't kick him out of the desert for eating crackers is all we're saying.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington): Hands down, our favorite bastard/should-be-hair-model on TV! Just look at that glorious mane! Plus, he totally knows how to use a sword and looks hot while doing so. OK, that sounded dirty, but you know what we mean. And yes, he knows where to put it. OK, that sounded dirty and we meant it to. Hey, he said it first!
Robb Stark (Richard Madden): King in the North! It's safe to say that of all the current contenders for the Iron Throne, Robb is totally winning in the looks department, so way to go kiddo. (And none for Renly and Stannis. Bye!)
Vote in our poll above and then head on down to the comments to tell us why your pick is the hottest on Game of Thrones. Or you can just yell at us for leaving your favorite off the list, whichever you prefer!
