THE ULTIMATE TV HUNK LIST! Pick the hunkiest doctor, crime solver, funny guy, non-human, reality host right HERE!

by Jim on October 24, 2011 · 122 comments

Joe Manganiello is making a lot of hearts race on TRUE BLOOD...but has he gotten enough votes for the Hunk List? LAST DAY TO VOTE!

[EDITOR’S NOTE 10/31/11: THE ENTRY DEADLINE FOR THIS POLL HAS ENDED. RESULTS WILL BE POSTED LATER THIS WEEK]

It’s been a long summer and now we’re deep into the Fall TV season. You know what that means, right? It means there’s a slew of new hunks competing to take down the mainstays who have been on the past lists. But instead of making this a general Hottest Hunk list where I make the picks (and then hear from you about how I missed this hunk or that hunk)  I figured I’d break things down to spread the hunk love a little bit and let YOU decide who makes the grade.  Welcome to the Ultimate TV Hunk List!!

Here’s how it’s going to work. You vote for your favorite hunks and I’ll tally the submissions and see who ranks #1 in each category. There are a few rules, however….

1.  The hunk you pick must be on a television series that is currently on the air or, in case it’s on hiatus, NOT cancelled. In other words, you can vote for Matt Bomer even though White Collar even though at this moment the show is  not currently airing new episodes but it’s also not cancelled. BUT you cannot vote for Keifer Sutherland since 24 is over (at least the TV series) and his new series Touch hasn’t premiered yet and while Law & Order: SVU is still on the air, Chris Meloni is no longer on the show so he doesn’t qualify. Sad, but true.

2.  It’s OK to enter the same actor in more than one category. For example, David Boreanaz could work in both the Is That A Gun In Your Pocket Hunk as well as the Wearing His Heart On His Sleeve hunk.

3.  Only one vote per email address per day. And, to be clear, each day is from midnight to midnight. Easy, right? And for those of you who would rather send me a thousand submissions a day for your favorite, channel that energy into spreading the word and getting your friends, followers and anyone else to submit their votes.

4.  The only way to enter is to email your answers to jim@jimhalterman.com. While you can surely Tweet and Facebook who you’re voting for and share the link to the Hunk List poll, the only entries I will be counting will be those that come via email. Comments left on this post are appreciated but will not be counted for the final results. And make sure you’re following me @JimHalterman for important updates/teases so you know who is leading in the categories. Deadline to enter is Sunday, October 30th at midnight PST. 

Here we go….a cut-and-paste ballot is at the bottom of the post.  Enjoy and feel free to email me your thoughts on any categories I may have missed or could use next time.  (We all know there will be a next time, right?) And know that the photos here are just some a random selection but if you choose to vote for them, go right ahead!

Post-Aquaman on SMALLVILLE, Alan Ritchson is showing off more of his comedic assets on BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE on Spike.

Laughing ‘Til It Hurts: (The Comedy Hunk):

We don’t always think of the funny guys as hunks but there are a slew of them on our TVs. James Roday & Dule Hill work in this category for USA’s Psych while Joel McHale how shown numerous times on NBC’s Community that he’s got one hot student body. And for you Blue Mountain State lovers over at Spike, have you checked out Alan Ritchson?  And, of course, the newest hunk to make us laugh is Ashton Kutcher, who has already shown quite a bit of skin since joining the Sheen-less Two And A Half Men.

Don Draper may not smile much but the same cannot be said for MAD MEN's Jon Hamm!!

Wearing My Heart On My Sleeve (The Drama Hunk):

Not ever show is about vampire slaying, demon bashing and a good old game of cops and robbers. Some shows – Parenthood are straight dramas without any big hook. That said, an actor like Andrew Lincoln on AMC’s The Walking Dead could totally fit here as could Ian Harding on Pretty Little LiarsJon Hamm for Mad Men. Even Michael C. Hall could work in this category for Showtime’s Dexter.

More hunks on the next page……

Some may go for Alex O'Loughlin but, I don't know, Daniel Dae Kim has got it going on, right?

Is That A Gun In Your Pocket or…. (The Crime Fighting Hunk): 

These are the guys who play roles like cops like Travis Milne on ABC’s Rookie Blue, detectives/special agents like Shemar Moore on CBS’s Criminal Minds or just general do-gooders like Nathan Fillion on ABC’s Castle. Maybe even Matt Bomer from White Collar since he does usually end up doing the right thing even if his path there is a bit unscrupulous. They make us feel safer but also look incredibly good doing it. How exactly they do that? Well, who cares as long as they don’t stop. Am I right?!

Alexander Skarsgard easily makes the grade on the hunk list. Do you agree?

I Kinda Sorta Look Human (The Non-Human Hunk):

Vampires (Paul Wesley), Werewolves (Michael Trevino), Witches (Gale Harold) as well as Demons and Angels are all fixtures on some of the hottest prime time shows out there. These guys can still have human qualities (like Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood) but the bottom line is that he is not human.

Wilson Bethel is sure making an impression on viewers on the new CW hit HART OF DIXIE!

New Kid On The Block (The New Hunk):

Sometimes a new face seemingly comes out nowhere and makes us stare at our TVs and say (out loud, of course) “Who the heck is that?!” So, who from the new fall TV season is already making your motor run? Is it Wilson Bethel from CW’s Hart of Dixie? Josh Dallas from the new ABC series Once Upon A Time? This is the guy who is going to give the Paul Wesleys and Gale Harold‘s a run for their hunky money.

Josh Jackson may make some hearts soon on FRINGE but Seth Gable and his dimples are quite a hunky addition, too!

A Galaxy Far, Far Away (The Sci-Fi Hunk):

Where there are geeky science fiction nerds you’ll also find the hunky likes of Joshua Jackson and Seth Gabel on Fringe or Malik Yoba on SyFy’s Alphas or Jason O’Mara on Terra Nova. So, if your fave hunk is on a sci-fi type show, you should vote for him here. May the force be with him.

Why doesn't my doctor look like GREYS' sexy Jesse Williams?

Doctor! Doctor! (The Medical Hunk):

What is it about doctors that make our blood pressure jump. The authoritarian position? The stethoscope? Or is it the ripped up body they hide under those white jackets. Think I’m lying? What about Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jesse Williams? Gifted Man‘s Patrick Wilson. Or maybe you like them a bit older like Hugh Laurie on House. 

Freddie Smith is making a splash on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as good guy (and gay) Sonny Kiriakis!

Like Sands Through The Hour Glass (The Daytime Hunk):

If your favorite guy is found on daytime TV, then this is category where you want to put him. Is he a hunky star from Days Of Our Lives like Eric Martsolf or Shawn Christian? Or is he helping us make our lives better every day on his self-titled talk show like Anderson Cooper or Nate Berkus? Or maybe a morning host like Today‘s Matt Lauer is the best part of your day. Despite the fewer number of soaps, though, there are still plenty of hunks to be found in the mornings and afternoon.

Neil Patrick Harris shows you can be gay in real life and play straight. What a concept!

I’m Super, Thanks For Asking (The Gay Hunk):

Is your favorite hunk of the gay persuasian? Shocking!  Whether he’s an out and proud actor (a la Neil Patrick Harris, who plays a straight role on How I Met Your Mother) or is a straight actor playing a gay role (maybe Eric Stonestreet on Modern Family gets you excited and not because he’s funny) you can pick him as your favorite gay hunk.

Maybe Steve Jones can host the X FACTOR in this outfit sometime?? Please!

So You Think You Can Host? (The Reality TV Hunk):

One of the criteria of a reality show host? He has to be masculine, good looking and sexy. Don’t believe me? Check out longtime hosts of Survivor (Jeff Probst) and The Amazing Race (Phil Keoghan) and the latest addition to the reality host club, X Factor‘s sexy Brit Steve Jones. Or maybe someone like Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio gets your oven heated up. Whatever your taste, can you possibly choose just one? Good luck with that!

Joseph Morgan's Klaus may be villainous on VAMPIRE DIARIES but wouldn't you let him have a little bite? I thought so...

Twisting The Knife And Lovin’ It (The Villainous Hunk):

Whether they are murderous vampires like Vampire Diaries  Joseph Morgan, a witchy stud like  The Secret Circle‘s Gale Harold or maybe you still think of Simon Cowell as a villain with his brutal honest on The X Factor? Or is Stephen Lang on Fox’s Terra Nova too sexy to be all bad? Then put name should go here.

Don't you think Nina Dobrev would vote for VAMPIRE DIARIES and her castmates Joseph Morgan, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley?

Smoldering All Around (The Hunkiest Show On TV)

Vampire Diaries? Supernatural? Hawaii Five-0? Happy Endings?  Which one of your favorite shows has the most or best hunks?  Pick ONE (only one) show here.

Is this Father-to-Be the hottest hunk on all of television?? VOTE VOTE VOTE!

….and for the following category we have an exception, the Favorite All-Time Hunk. Vote for one – just one – hunk of all time (past or present TV shows)

Remember, give me one name. Just one.

That’s it…so now just cut and paste the following list with your votes and email to me at jim@jimhalterman.com.  Remember, only one vote per email every 24 hour period. Results to be posted next week!!  Have fun deciding!!

Duh…Jensen Ackles…in all categories!

Yes, Changing Channels gave us Dr. Winchesters and Slash Fiction gave us villainous Winchesters. Skin and Two and a Half Men gave us non-human Winchesters.

We’ll take a pass on the Reality hunk…not gonna go there.

Neil Patrick Harris as gay hunk and Warren Christie as New Hunk on the Block.

Supernatural as Hunkiest show. Double-duh…

Olivia October 31, 2011 at 7:03 am

Its sad that Nathan Fillion and David Boreanaz are the only mature hunks to choose from. All the rest are bare chested boys. Bare chested also means they arent mature enough to even HAVE hair.
I think this vote is for the bubble headed teeny crowd. Next.

Jim October 31, 2011 at 10:05 am

Oh, Olivia. You aren’t looking hard enough…Mark Harmon, Jason O’Mara and Dylan McDermott to name a few… Thanks for the comment, though! Always appreciated.
