The Hotties That Didn't Make The Cut

I had an amazing number of TV bad boys suggested to me by my friends. I probably can't even remember them all. (And I've decided that for the purposes of this little compare and contrast I won't be using soap opera characters). But there are some bad boys that just didn't make the cut for various reasons. If you want to speak on their behalf please do so in the comments! In no particular order, they are:

Pacey Witter from "Dawson's Creek"
Lord knows "Dawson's Creek" had its die-hard fans, but I was not one of them. For some reason I could never get on board with this show. I'll admit that Pacey should be acknowledged as one of TV's bad boy favorites, but he never provoked more than a "meh" and channel change from me. Sad, but true.

Ryan Atwood from "The OC"
This is a bad boy I actually regret that I cannot speak on behalf of. I just know that if I had watched "The OC" I would have loved Ryan and his bad boy heart of gold. Alas, I never got around to watching the show, and while it is on my very, very long list of shows to watch, I don't feel that I can do this character justice. Oh, and he clearly get's bonus points for being hot.

Chuck Bass from "Gossip Girl"
I started out as a big "Gossip Girl" fan, but as the show progressed and got weirder and weirder, I became less and less interested. I haven't watched the past two seasons. Chuck Bass is a fantastic bad boy for many reasons. Unfortunately, I've never had the desire to jump through my TV screen and give him a hug, so he doesn't make the cut.

Don Draper from "Mad Men"
Another show I have tragically never watched. I know, I know, I need to get on that. Hell, I can tell from the pictures that Don Draper is one badass bad boy. But I wouldn't be doing the character justice and I can't fairly judge. Sadness.

Eric Northman from "True Blood"
ANOTHER show I've never watched. Damn HBO. To be fair, I did watch one episode but I was so confused as to what was going on that I had to give up. I'll have to start from the beginning one day. I mean, first of all: pretty. Second of all: vampire. By all rights he should be on my list. Alas.

Sawyer from "Lost"
I was all on board the "Lost" train. Really I was. And I was always team Sawyer. Unfortunately, I was MORE team Boone (who was not a bad boy but, come on, PRETTY, and Ian Somerhalder is my dream man) so when he died in a tragic and painful way I stopped watching. Had I continued it pretty much only would have been to watch Sawyer. And let's be honest, based on what I heard about the finale, it's a good thing I didn't stick it out.

I'm going to leave it with those hotties for tonight, but sadly there is another list that didn't make my bad boy cut. Hey, I have very high standards, okay? Plus it's not fair of me to judge a character I haven't actually watched.

In the mean time, enjoy the pretty pictures.

Can you believe I was mistaken for "Pacey Witter" sometimes in HS? I wasn't even aware of the show at the time. :)

I can see it!

Very pretty pictures. Thanks for that.

I was never into Pacey either, or Dawson's Creek as a whole. My ex-boyfriend liked the show a lot more than I did.

The fact that I am obsessed with womanizing, alcoholic Don Draper is testament to how incredibly sexy he is!

David P King - I can totally see that too!

I was one of those Dawson's Creek die-hard fans (though I've since moved on to better things!) and Pacey was my fave. Dawson just got annoying!
