If you’re one of the 6.7 million who watched the premiere of HBO’s 3rd season of Game of Thrones, we know you’re as excited as we are for the next 9 Sundays! By the end of Season 2 we’re left with the aftermath of the battle for Blackwater Bay, we’re exposed to a giant horde of undead White Walkers beyond the wall, Daenerys gets her dragons back, Jon Snow “joins” the Wildlings, and Joffrey still reigns as King on the Iron Throne. A lot has happened and we’d like to take a moment to celebrate before moving forward.
Behold, Cabletv.com is proud to announce its first installment of the Throneys!
Twice a week we will serve up a poll for you to choose the best-of for a certain Game of Thrones scenario. And as George R.R. Martin once said, “Most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it.” Let the battles begin!
This week we kick it off with “The Hottest Males in Game of Thrones ”. Go vote now, and if you think we left someone off, feel free to add your own pick!
The Hottest Males in Game of Thrones
If we’re to be totally honest about why we watch shows filled with hunky, desirable men, it’s because they’re filled with hunky, desirable men. From there, however, each of us must decide for ourselves which physical traits and other characteristics matter most.
Beauty, as it is often said, is in the eye of the beholder, which is why many of the male cast members of HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones are so appealing.
With a keen eye on the details, here’s a lusty, bawdy look at the hottest males in Game of Thrones.
For any woman who’s down for a bit of adventure off the beaten path, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) might just be your cup o’ tea. Nicknamed “The Imp,” Tyrion is a handsome dwarf with a lot going for him. Although he comes with the physical limitations most commonly associated with being a dwarf, Tyrion is arguably the smartest person in the Seven Kingdoms.
Any woman is willing to take intelligence and cunning over six-pack abs and tall, dark, and handsome, will discover that Tyrion is worth the effort. He is nearly always in complete control of any situation, and like a good chess player he’s always several moves ahead of his competition.
Tyrion is also confident with the ladies, almost always in the company of a prostitute or two , but has been awe-struck by the lovely Shae whom he appointed Sansa’s handmaiden to keep her close as well as to shield her from his unkind father.
Who wouldn’t want a man such as Tyrion? After all, look at the lengths he’s gone to for the woman of his dreams. He’s very attractive in my book, but I guess we’ll see what you think .
Jaime Lannister is the ultimate bad-boy, in attitude and in practice. He’s played by the super-sexy, and imminently desirable Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. If you get all hot and bothered over the type of guy who will protect you at all cost, then Jaime is your man.
He’s a skilled swordsman who enjoys fighting, and he’s quite skilled in the art of death, murder, mayhem, and in general ass kicking, no matter where he goes. He’s loyal to his brother, Tyrion, which makes him even more awesome.
Add to this the fact that he’s rich and famous, is not afraid of much, and has the classic good looks of a strong jawed superhero, he could make even the staunchest of spinsters weak in the knees.
He does, however, have one major shortcoming, and for many women it could be a deal breaker: He only has eyes and other manly body parts for his twin sister and Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Cersei. Their incestuous relationship dates back to their childhood, which makes it not very surprising that Jaime is the father of her three children.
If you could wrestle him away from his sister, he’s arguably the hunkiest catch in the pond. A girl can dream, right?
What girl doesn’t want a legit bad boy from the other side of the proverbial tracks? We’re talking Johnny Depp good looks with a Jude Law accent. Wait, I just described über good-looking Kit Harington, the British actor who plays Jon Snow.
Snow is the bastard son of Ned Stark, and has pretty much been treated as the son of the wet nurse who is purported to be his mother. Still, he’s got Stark blood coursing through his veins, which makes him enterprising and engaging.
For any woman seeking an ambitious man who has everything it takes to make good in life, then Jon Snow is your man. He’s extremely good looking. In fact, he’s beyond good looking, he’s sexy in a “I gotta have that man no matter what” kind of way.
He’s so desirable because he’s a bit mysterious, definitely motivated to improve his lot in life, confident in all he does, and is smart enough to know when he’s been given a helping hand from people who can definitely accelerate his climb up the ol’ social ladder. He’s also got a boyish innocence that makes him kind and gentle at all the right times and in all the right ways.
Who doesn’t want a king, right? And by king I mean King with a capital K. Robb Stark (Richard Madden) is the King of the North and the Riverlands, a kingdom that’s declared their independence from the Seven Kingdoms.
Ladies, if you’re looking for the ultimate trust fund baby, Robb Stark is your man. He’s attractive enough to sleep with, or even to marry and be seen with in public, but let’s face it; the whole King of the North thing paired with being rich is enough to overcome even a hideous man. Fortunately, he’s not hideous at all.
But hey, every woman dreams of marrying a man in love, so at least he’s not afraid to follow his heart.
We’ve all seen that guy who is big, strong, scary-looking, with body language that suggests he’s completely unapproachable, right? Some of these fellas, no doubt, have been all of these things with nothing else going for them, but some are just big ol’ teddy bears beneath their gruff exterior.
Such is the case with Khal Drogo, warlord of the Dothraki people. Played by 6′ 5″ Jason Momoa, Khal Drogo is the bad boy every girl dreams of taming. He’s got a genuine soft side, which will come in handy around the children. Children you say? Absolutely! Khal Drogo is the marrying type, and he’s just the sort of man you’d want if you’re the marrying, baby-making type, too.
This one time (no, not at band camp) he got into a fight and just to prove what a real bad-ass he is, he ripped the dude’s tongue right out of his head and held it up for everyone to see.
So, ladies, if you’re into the challenge of the “tame,” like a man with some size, and want to nurture that soft side for when the babies come, Khal Drogo is your hunk-in-waiting.
Who’s your hunk of choice on “Game of Thrones?” Let us know what you think in our poll.
