It's not exactly a presidential election (no one this fine ever runs for POTUS), but we do have the results of our humble little poll asking "Who's the Hottest Guy on The Walking Dead?"
We issued the poll on April 25 and figured it would sit there forever, just collecting a few votes now and then. But when it quickly became a vote fight between Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) fans seemed to want to know closing time so they could move on with their own lives. So, after three weeks, the vote is over.
Hotness is still in the eye of the beholder, but in this particular poll The Ricktator reigned supreme. Barely. Several thousand votes were cast from 90 countries (Germany, you feel strongly about this topic - respect!) and Rick Grimes ended up winning 42.39 percent of the vote, less than one percent over Daryl Dixon's 41.46 percent.
It was a runaway between those two guys, but tripled digit votes were also cast for The Governor (David Morrissey), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), and Shane (Jon Bernthal), in that order, although a lot of people just threw up their hands and chose "I can't decide - I love so many of these guys!"
So that's what happened. The poll is closed and Rick won. TWD has millions of fans and only a small fraction voted here, so it's not exactly a definitive answer, but good for the people who repped their teams. We’re now doing it again, for the women of The Walking Dead, since hotness goes both ways. So check out that poll here and pick your favorite lady.
Thanks to all who voted! Rick would thank you, too, but he’s stuck in a Terminus train car…
Do you agree with these results or did you vote for someone else to win?
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
