15. Lorenzo Borghese, Season 9 (Rome)
Lorenzo's entire season was a miss (except for introducing us to Erica Rose!), so it's no surprise the "prince" is at the bottom of the list. He's probably a great guy and we know he’s a big animal lover, but his finest royal qualities were not on display in Rome.
14. Byron Velvick, Season 6
Pro fisherman Byron was the oldest Bachelor and he chose a woman who was charged with beating him up. And he has that hair. All in all, not a hottie.
12. Bob Guiney, Season 4
Some of us still appreciate Bob's goofy, boy-next-door sense of humor from the very first season of The Bachelorette. He was a refreshing change from the usual bland guys. But then he was The Bachelor and supposedly slept with five-and-a-half women, even though that doesn't make sense. Then he dumped Estella Gardinier, married a soap star, and divorced her. His after-school stuff tarnished his reputation but, dang it, the guy was funny.
11. Alex Michel, Season 1
Honestly, if Trista Rehn hadn't gone on from this to The Bachelorette to become Trista Sutter, we're not sure the Bachelor franchise would've lasted too long. Alex did not exactly jump off the screen with charisma. He's just an okay guy who produced an okay season with a great happy ending follow-up.
10. Jesse Palmer, Season 5
Jesse played in the NFL for the New York Giants. Everything else about him is a generic blur. He's tall and handsome but not in a way that's memorable enough for us to care. Sorry, man.
9. Aaron Buerge, Season 2
Isn't it weird how much Aaron and Jesse look alike? No wonder ABC wanted Chris Lambton to be The Bachelor — he fits perfectly into their hot blond mold. It's a shame things went south for Aaron and Helene Eksterowicz, but considering how much Aaron just blends into the Bachelor conveyor belt, maybe it's fitting.
7. Charlie O'Connell, Season 7
Charlie is goofy and fun and kind of normal, even if he is the brother of actor Jerry O'Connell. He and Sarah Brice actually worked as a couple for a while, then broke up and tried again. (Then broke up again.) And his runner up was Krisily Kennedy, whom we loved on Bachelor Pad. Charlie's all right.
(Don't be confused... we're saving number 7 for the very end!!)
5. Jake Pavelka, Season 14 (On the Wings of Love)
His reputation took a nose-dive after choosing Vienna Girardi over 24 sane women. (Okay, maybe only 20 of them were sane.) Things managed to get worse for Jake when he engaged in an ugly public breakup with Vienna. But he turned things around on Bachelor Pad 2 and the guy *does* have a rock-hard body and a nice smile. Sorry. He's hot.
4. Travis Stork, Season 8 (Paris)
The 6'4" hottie was good enough for Carrie Underwood and he's definitely good enough for us. Dr. Stork is also good enough for The Doctors. He's just plain good.
3. Ben Flajnik, Season 16
Ben’s reign of terror has yet to be over, so our hotness ranking is based on his performance as a failed proposer on The Bachelorette Season 7. He started as a quiet, sensitive wine maker with the good sense to ply Ashley Hebert with liquor. By the end of the road, he was a charming hipster who did *not* want his dumping sugar-coated. A man who knows what he wants? That’s hot.
2. Brad Womack, Seasons 11 and 15
Hate on Brad all you want, he's still yummy. The 6'1" Texan is a big hunk o' man. Yeah, he ticked off some folks on Season 11 and he couldn’t get it right the second time either. He kinda sucks at this whole Bachelor thing. Moot point. He was still worth staring at for a couple of hours every Monday night. Thanks for the shirtless memories, Brad.
1. Andy Baldwin, Season 10 (Officer and a Gentleman)
Love, love, love Andy Baldwin — a.k.a. Lieutenant Commander Andrew James Baldwin. He's a sweet, smart military man, Ironman competitor, and inspirational humanitarian. A true gentleman. Perfect guy. Major hot attack. Can we keep him?
