Time to vote for who you drool over most in Round 1 of Hottie Madness 2014! Up next, the Drool bracket. Don’t forget, there is still time to vote in the Swoon and Crush brackets! I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. Somehow all the music show judges ended up in this bracket. You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos.

(1) Henry Cavill vs (16) Alan Ritchson
I think Henry is the hottest guy on the planet. Seriously. So hot. I can’t stop looking at him. But when I put these pics side by side, Alan kinda gives him a run for his money. Kinda…

I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. Of all the brackets, this one might have the most random matchups. You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos.

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (16) Chiwetel Ejiofor
JT has become a bit of a renaissance man, and one of the best SNL hosts/Jimmy Fallon guests ever, but to me he will always be known as the man who brought sexy back. And Chiwetel has made quite a name for himself this year, with his Oscar nom for 12 Years A Slave. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of his face. Just saying…

Time to vote for your most swoon-worthy hotties in Round 1 of Hottie Madness 2014! First up, the Swoon bracket. I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. I also did my best to choose recent photos of each hottie. Gotta keep things real. You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos.

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (16) Jim Parsons
Charlie’s post was the most shared of all the hotties this year, and I’m sure that had a little something to do with his winning, and then ditching, the role of Christian in the 50 Shades movie. But, he’s still super hot, and as much as I liked him for Christian, I think Jamie was a good pick. (He’s in the Drool bracket.) His competition is one of my fave nerds on TV,
Sheldon Cooper Jim Parsons. I seriously love Jim, and it seems like everyone else does, too, with his three Emmy wins. And you know, nerdy sexy is just as hot as sexy sexy.

It’s officially hottie season! I’m thrilled to announce Hottie Madness 2014! Voting for the third annual tournament of hotties starts tomorrow, March 18th. Last year was a huge success, with over 13,000 votes cast in the final round alone, resulting in a victorious David Gandy. And let’s not forget the original hottie, Ryan Gosling, who was the winner in 2012. Who do think will be this year’s Official Hottie?
If you’re new to the tournament, Hottie Madness is modeled after the NCAA March Madness tourney, but this bracket is way more fun to fill out! 64 hotties. Sorted and seeded. And ready to be judged by you over the next four weeks.
Here’s how it works. I made a list of all the men featured in Eye Candy posts this year. I was actually short by about six hotties, so I augmented with some of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. The hotties were divided into four brackets using random.org, and then seeded by the amount of shares on their posts (and a little bit of personal opinion). This year, the bracket names are based on the four words I think I use way too often: Swoon, Crush, Drool and Lust.

So this post was supposed to happen back in November, when Adam Levine was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, but he got trumped by the Hunger Games Hotties. And since Hottie Madness is only a week away, I wanted to get this post done in time for Adam to be eligible. (But, who am I kidding. With 64 spots to fill and I think only 50-some hotties featured this year, I’ll be filling in the blanks with some random hotties. I just wanted an excuse to look at pics of Adam’s tats.)
The thing about Adam is that he’s hot. And he knows it. He’s confident. Sexy. A bit cocky. A bit of a manwhore (well, in the past). A bit naked all the time. But I guess I would be too with a bod like that! He could easily veer into douchebag territory, but he’s also a self-proclaimed “mama’s boy,” raised with manners. He’s an incredibly talented musician with a sexy as hell voice. And body. And tattoos. A true rock star, which seems to be a bit of a dying breed.

The post otherwise known as There-Are-Empty-Spots-In-The-Hottie-Madness-Bracket-So-Let’s-Fill-Em-Up. In all seriousness, these guys are all relevant, and some have never been featured, so they definitely need to be in this year’s tournament! Just a reminder, the Oscars are this Sunday, March 2nd, with coverage starting at 7pm. And will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres for the second time, which I’m super excited about! Love her.
Leonardo DiCaprio | Best Actor, The Wolf of Wall Street
I don’t need to go on and on about Leo. He’s been featured a few times on the blog and it’s no secret that he is one of my absolute faves, if not my most favorite. A crush that’s been going strong since 1993. I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about The Wolf of Wall Street, but I loved it. I loved him in it. But then again, I love everything with Leo. I can go on and on about how he’s been snubbed too many times, but I won’t. He’s up against some tough competition this year, but obviously, I want him to win.

Somehow almost three years have passed without a John Krasinski hottie post. He’s made a few small appearances, mainly beside his equally hot wife, Emily Blunt, but has never had a fully dedicated post. Even though he has no movies or shows or whatever to promote right now, there is nothing wrong with just promoting his hotness. And celebrating the fact that he is a new dad! John and Emily welcomed their daughter Hazel into the world on Sunday.
As a huge fan of The Office, I’ve loved John since 2005, when he debuted as the somewhat unkempt office prankster and hopeless romantic, Jim Halpert. I don’t know anyone who didn’t love Jim, and while I know Jim is just a character, I want to believe his not that dissimilar to John himself. John has a great sense of humor. He’s tall. Handsome. Effortlessly charming and has a killer smile. Did you ever see Leatherheads? I kind of think of John as a young George Clooney, but with a wife. They both have a similar charm and sense of humor, they both love to play practical jokes and they both get more attractive with age. John even got married at George’s Italian villa. I’ve also loved John in his other movies like It’s Complicated, Something Borrowed and even License to Wed. I love that he lip synced to a Katy Perry song with Jimmy Fallon (it’s a MUST WATCH). I love the fact that he’s smart (graduated from Brown) and wanted to be an English teacher so he could wear “corduroy jackets with patches on the side.” And beyond all that, he seems like the perfect husband. An actual romantic, not just playing one on TV. Like I want to snuggle right into the middle of his marriage.

I’m not usually awake for late-night TV, but when I am, my talk show host of choice is definitely Jimmy Fallon. And I’m thrilled he’s making the jump from late late-night to “primetime” late-night, taking over Jay Leno’s spot on The Tonight Show starting next week. I think Jimmy is one of those cases where an awesome personality can make someone so much hotter. Don’t get me wrong, Jimmy has a cute foundation. I mean, the man is adorable. Ridiculously excited and happy, all the time. He seems like the most fun-loving guy on TV. Or maybe in life. The kind of guy you want to be your bestie. But if you layer the cute with Jimmy’s universal appeal, his charm, his joy, his infectious smile…that’s what makes him hot.
The guy can do it all: sing, dance, play guitar, act, do countless impersonations (did anyone hear his bit on the Howard Stern Birthday Bash?). And he does do it all, and will say yes to anything for a laugh, including cracking up during his sketches, which I find endearing. ”Definitely a comedy foul. Lorne didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. But the sketches I laughed in became popular. At the end, it was like the audience was waiting. The studio started to shake. Like an earthquake. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Torture.”

It’s been far too long since Matt Damon has graced this blog with his presence. Like two years too long. So with his new movie, The Monuments Men, coming out this weekend, I think it’s time we get another look at that handsome, smiling face of his. Is anyone looking forward to seeing The Monuments Men? I know I am! It’s based on the true story of a World War II platoon who were tasked by FDR to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves. I love that it’s a war movie about art. Totally into that! And it stars another fave hottie, George Clooney, who actually shared a post with Matt a few years ago.
Since I’ve already listed many of the reasons I adore Matt in my last post, all of which are still true, I’ll just add a few more things. And one fun fact.

I’ve mentioned this before, but 1994 was a pivotal year in my life. It was the year of Dookie, Reality Bites and My So-Called Life. And it was the year of forming lifelong hottie-obsessions, like Billie Joe, Christian, Leo, and of course, one Jordan Catalano. It didn’t matter that he was basically illiterate. He could sing Ramones covers and was the hottest leaner on TV.
Fast-forward 20 years (TWENTY YEARS!!!), and I’m still obsessed with all of these guys. And maybe it’s because I’m also 20 years older, but they all still look the same to me. However, no one has
drunk chugged more from the fountain of youth than Jared Leto. He is just agelessly and exceptionally hot. And it would make sense that Jared would get nominated for an Oscar for playing a transgender character. I mean, he has to be the prettiest man in Hollywood. Right? It doesn’t matter if he has long hair or short, is bearded or clean-shaven, is skinny or ripped. His quirky, rock god status allows him to get away with guyliner and ombré hair, all of which just enhances his beauty. I know it might be emasculating to call a man beautiful, but he is. He’s just…pretty. Damn. Hot. With those soul-piercing blue eyes and that perfect smile. And according to this one interviewer (which I believe is the general perception of Jared), he is incredibly charming and is a “phenomenally gifted flirt.”
