Grey's Anatomy Season 10 remains frustratingly far away (the premiere is on September 26, 2013), and we have to fill our time somehow. Is there a better way to pass the long hours than drooling over Grey Sloan Memorial's hottest men? We're pretty sure the answer to that question is a resounding "No."
In the interest of furthering our understanding of our favorite medical show, we've taken a look at the many men who have inhabited Seattle Grace-Mercy West/Grey-Sloan Memorial hospital over the years, and ranked the ten hottest, taking into account face, bod, and personality. Why? Because we can.
Obviously this list is totally subjective, so after you read our thoughts, hit the comments to share your picks!
10. Dr. Jason Myers
Based on looks alone, Jason would compete to top this list, because Charles Michael Davis is basically the definition of gorgeous. On the other hand, being an abusive, manipulative creep is the opposite of hot, so we've settled with putting him at the bottom here. Face is great, too bad about the personality.
9. Denny Duquette
Izzie's love was quite the rugged looker. We were almost willing to forgive the ghost sex plotline because it was such a pleasure to have him on our screens again.
8. Matthew Taylor
Paramedic Matthew is kinda boring, but in a totally adorable way. Clearly April should pick Jackson, but we can see why she's torn.
7. Nurse Eli Lloyd
Remember when Bailey had both Ben and nurse Eli fighting over her? Yeah, that's a problem we'd love to have.
6. Ben Warren
A man who can rock facial hair and make it work with Bailey even when she's at her most intense? Sign us up — this guy's one in a million!
5. Owen Hunt
This handsome redhead has an intensity that's irresistible. And hey, it looks like he's on the market again...
4. Alex Karev
We love the brooding bad-boy vibe Alex has going on, especially because we know he's a big softie on the inside. Also, have you seen Justin Chambers' arms? Yeah.
3. Mark Sloan
Mark may be gone, but his sexiness is not forgotten. He had the face and bod to back up the McSteamy nickname, but it was really his charming personality that sealed the deal. We still miss you, Mark.
2. Derek Shepherd
They don't call him McDreamy for nothing. The hair! The jawline! The smile! If you look up handsome in the dictionary Derek should be there, and now that he's proving to be an adorable daddy, he's more appealing than ever. If we didn't like Meredith so much, we'd hate her for scoring the perfect man.
1. Jackson Avery
Sorry McDreamy, but these days we're aaaaall about Jackson, his amazing abs, and his gorgeous, gorgeous eyes. We want to grab a bathing suit and go swimming in those baby blues (or greys? Or greens? It's always a bit hard to tell). Add to that Jackson's earnest personality and growing authority at the hospital, and we have a winner.
Catch the Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 premiere on Thursday, September 26, 2013, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
