Game of Thrones is a smart, thrilling show that combines political intruge, jaw dropping cinematography, and edge-of-your-seat action to create an epic TV experience that has managed to convince television snobs that fantasy can be high-brow. As a bonus, it also happens to feature quite a few men who are easy on the eyes.
We're going to indulge in our shallow side for a sec — hey, it's the holidays, indulging is what this time of year is all about! — to bring your our in no way definitive list of the 10 hottest guys on Game of Thrones.
We've calculated this ranking using a very made up formula that comes facial features, bod, and personality. We're sure plenty of you will disagree, so hop into the comments with your thoughts once you're done reading ours!
10. Ned Stark (Sean Bean)
Sean Bean is sexy. Nobility is sexy. Being so noble that you screw everything up and get yourself killed? Kinda the opposite of sexy. Ned makes the list, but barely.
9. Grey Worm
Sure, he's had like three lines and is missing *ehem* certain bits, but don't think we haven't noticed how darned attractive the head of the Unsullied is.
8. Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony)
Being attractive and charming was basically the entire basis for Renly's attempt to claim the throne. Sure, that didn't go so well, but it was fun to have him around while it lasted.
7. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)
Pros: Wit, kindness, hair. Cons: Drinking habits, affinity for prostitutes.
6. Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha)
Until he changed his face, Jaqen H'ghar was one of the most attractive badass terrifying assassins we'd ever had the pleasure of watching on screen.
5. Jon Snow (Kit Harington)
Kit Harington is adorable. Jon Snow is therefore also adorable, but his tendency to pout and angst all the time kinda takes away from the hotness factor.
4. Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa)
That face. That hair. Those muscles. Negative points for having to be taught that rape is bad, though.
3. Robb Stark (Richard Madden)
Robb, oh Robb. You were so pretty, and so fierce, and so brave, and so very, very stupid. Kinda like your dad, really.
2. Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)
Jaime Lannister looks like Prince Charming — and we know he looks good shirtless — with the added pleasure of quick wit, bravery, and an interesting redemption arc. On the other hand, he screwed his twin sister for years, which is a huge turn off.
1. Gendry (Joe Dempsie)
This gif tells the whole story of why Gendry is at the top of our list. It also helps that he appears to be one of the few decent people left in Westeros.
