Game of Thrones: How Would You Rank the Characters According to Hotness?


Yesterday, The Hairpin ranked the men of Game of Thrones according to hotness. Obviously I clicked, because how could you not? But then I found myself utterly confused: Jon Snow finished seventeenth? I mean, maybe he was too predictable a choice for the top honor, but I'd take the bastard over Davos Seaworth—who came in fifteenth—any day. Also: Melisandre's murderous Shadow Baby beats Gendry? And that adorable giant from the Season 3 premiere didn't even make the list? Naturally, I now require your opinion on this very important matter. 

For the record, my current pick for Seven Kingdoms Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive is Robb Stark; Jon Snow, while very beautiful, is a little too flustered and wimpy-seeming these days. Man up, Jon Snow! And because TV.com is an equal opportunity outfit when it comes to judging the sex appeal of fictional characters, let's feel free to include the women, too. On the ladies' side, I'm thinking Ygritte is where it's at: Girl is hot and funny and and she doesn't take any sh*t (Dany's a little too serious for me, and Ser Jorah would probably get in the way). Where do YOU stand?

We'll keep adding to the poll based on your comments...

ATTENTION MODERATORS: I get that this is supposed to be an open forum, but since this is a discussion for the TV SHOW, can there be a rule added somewhere that prevents people from posting spoilers on comment threads? If I wanted to know what happened in the books, I would read them first. I don't appreciate people posting spoilers from the books on here.

Jaime, Robb, Margaery, Dany and Cercei are the best looking on GOT in my opinion. It's interesting to see how different people can view beauty/"hotness", beuaty really lies in the eye of the beholder..

Ygritte, Margeary Tyrrel and Sansa Stark, in this order from top to bottom, are the chosen ones to fill the podium of sexiest women in Game of Thrones.

I share the same opinion as te article about Ygritte, hot, funny and takes no crap.

Margaery vs. Daenerys vs. Ygritte is the competition for me.
But, I think Daenerys comes first, then Margaery and then Ygritte.

Margaery Tyrell (I understand she wont be everyone's cup of tea) but something about her just screams "The definition of Beautiful"... for me at least

Those votes for Arya makes me disgusted to be honest... Are you kidding me!
Dany, Ygritte, Sansa and Cersei are the hottest females imo.
I also think Jaime and the Khal are quite handsome among the men. Not my type though, obviously.

Don't act all righteous. It's not that weird that people just find her good-looking.. doesn't mean they wanna do freaky stuff to her or whatever went through your mind

Freaky stuff eh? She's ugly plain and simple. So I guess that means the freaky stuff went through your mind. Now I am being all righteous pervo.
Reply

Hm I'm a girl and I don't find her 'hot', all I was saying was that without wanting to do anything to her people can look objectively and just think that she's good-looking or cute. Your opinion about her looks is not universal.
Reply
Flag
@christieg77. That's true, but I think cuteness or just plain looks is the way they look at it when people vote for her
Flag
Well in fairness, the title of the article has the word "hotness" in it, not "cuteness". I guess I can agree that "cute" would be a better word, but let's also not forget that she easily passed for a boy soooooo.... I dunno.

Khal Drogo is/was the bomb (not to mention, since I was a teenager, I have a mad crush on Jason Momoa on Baywatch Hawaii, he be sizzling, plus his voice AND than language... Hot stuff)
From women.. I think Dany, yeah, when she is fierce and serious, that is when I like her the most.

It feels weird to vote for Arya Stark as hot character. I feel like pedophile to be honest. And seems to me that author's hotness rate depends on character's certain qualities not on handsomeness or beauty per se. Then I should pick our great little man as hottest of them all. And Dani is the one among women any time for me is the hottest character (due to human qualities and beauty). Margaery is the second (actress is very hot). Melisandre is third (Karice Van Houten is always hot).

Cersei is hot when she doesn't have her wig on and is sporting her black hair. Daenerys also looks better outside of the show, okay in the show. Talisa is yummy (love me a good looking Latina). Ygritte is more desire then sexy. Shae is hot when she starts talking about "the poor little foreign girl." The red woman has that forbidden hotness to her. Sansa is hot depending on the camera angle and when you manage to forget that she's only 14(?) in the show. Osha, any girl who can date a wearwolf (Harry Potter) one minute then take care of a dire wolf the next minute is hot to me. Brienne scares you in to thinking she's hot. Margaery is hot when she's not acting fake for some idiot king. Arya has that she'll be real hot when she grows up hotness.

I completely agree about Cercei - Lena Headey is super hot with her naturally dark hair - but in the series not so much. The blond hair doesn't suit her.

When asking for votes on who is the HOTTEST, I find it rather disturbing that you would include kids in the mix. (Unless your trying to raise Jimmy Savile from the dead) However, I find it even more disturbing that this kid who plays Arya Stark has got 460 votes so far.
If the vote was for the PRETTIEST character then yes, Arya Stark would deserve plenty of votes but not the HOTTEST for goodness sake.

I find it equally disturbing that you would include dwarfs too. Ha Ha

Why are dwarves disturbing? They are adults. For me - Tyrion IS kinda hot.

This looks suspiciously like my "GoT HOT" rankings I did in a few of my GoT comments this season. But a good idea is a good idea. So without further adieu:

(Note: This is a purely superficial list. Some obvious names are absent because of this.)

(Note #2: I'm only going to rank the girls, 'cause I'm a guy and the dudes on this show give me an inferiority complex.)

1. Melisandre (I think I've said it before, but I'll say it again, Dark Magic DOES it for me.)
2. Margaery (Best Dressed Woman of Westeros!)
3. Ygritte (I'd like to kiss her fire! ... That might not make any sense.)
4. Talisa (Not much love for Robb's Queen. Weird. Well, she can change MY bandages anytime! ... I'm terrible at sexual innuendo.)
5. Dany (I'm attracted to her and scared by her in equal parts.)
6. Sansa (A very lovely girl... But not old enough for me to even contemplate more.)
7. Missandei (I love a woman who can sweet talk me in multiple languages.)
8. Shae (Impressed by her obvious oral skills... And I just got gross.)
9. Cersei (Her personality disgusts me, but she does have nice cheek bones.)
10. Ros (She's hotter than Osha.)

You stay sexy, Westeros! (And Essos!)

Easy! Gendry, Jaime, Jon Snow, Robb, Tyrion, Kal Drogo, Jorah Mormont, Littlefinger, Davos, Bronn, and firmly in last place due to gross personality/gross sex scenes: Theon.

Ranking the ladies by AWESOMENESS and general badassery: Arya, Brienne, Dany, Ygritte, Cersei, Lady Olenna, Margaery, Sansa, Osha, Catelyn, and last and also least, Shae.

How the F does Ross rank so low. I mean she's ranked below Hodor and a dragon.

I'm not saying she's the hottest one on there but she deserves better than THAT

1.Dany. Big love for Emilia Clarke, who I went to school with and therefore have known of that hot girl called Millie for years now (ok so maybe I was a year out from her and never really knew her but I'm calling her Millie all the same, shameless).

2. Cersei - Right there with you Salladhor

3. Margaery - Yet another reason to loathe Joffrey

It's hard for me to vote for Daenerys as a character since she is about 15 in the books.

Isn't everyone like under 16 in the books? I haven't read them myself, but a friend of my have. And I remember her saying "he/she was 12 in the books" almost everytime a character came up on the screen. (Yes, I'm exaggerating)

Yeah kinda, most young adults you see on the TV version were in fact children/teens in the books although Daenerys' age was changed the most I think (out of obvious reasons).

I think it's because they put the wrong dragon on the list. Drogon is complete dick; it's vain and full of itself. It's hot in a literal sense, but not when it comes to personality. They should have chosen one of the two other ones. They are cool, but unfortunately living in the shadow of Drogo.

In my book Drogon IS the coolest. He doesn't care for shit and is THE force. If you wanna get your party fired up you don't need to call him - he's already barbecuing your neighbors on his way. I'm fascinated with his brothers though - but Rhaegal is a bitch sometimes and Viserion is just batshit crazy. Get it? BATshit? Because he thinks he's a bat?

Gendry rules for hottest guy. End. Of. Story. He just does. Not enough Gendry in the eps lately. I do love Jon Snow, don't get me wrong, but he's such a girl sometimes. Theon's also hot, but also a bit of a girl with Daddy issues. Robb, also gorgeous, he comes in second for me. Renly may be gay, but he was also hot (but he's dead, so tears) Jaqen is just so epic and hot, but he changed his face so he's not so hot anymore (cries) Ned was played by Sean Bean, that's all I need to say on the matter, he automatically gets hot points for that. Jaime is also hot, too bad his heart belongs to his twin sister. Tyrion's also hot. He may be a dwarf, but damned if he isn't the most awesome dwarf ever. He earns hot points for pure badassery intelligence. Bronn is also epic and so are Khal Drogo and Jorah.

So my list in ranking order,

1 - Gendry
2 - Robb
3 - Ned
4 - Renly
5 - Jaime
6 - Bronn
7 - Jorah
8 - Jon
9 - Theon
10 - Khal Drogo
11 - Tyrion
12 - Jaqen (he comes in last because his face changed at the end of season 2 so he no longer looks the same)
