The Ultimate Romantic Hero

As promised, here is the Minxy version of the poll to see which male celebrity is the Ultimate Romantic Hero. Please vote in the poll section on the right sidebar. The poll will stay up for a full week, so feel free to send your friends over to cast their votes.

To assist you in your choice, the Minxes have kindly assembled the reasons why we think each man is a worthy candidate. (Or in other words, here's the eye candy, dear blog readers).

Jo C's choice is Gilles Marini. I've decided to play it safe with this picture, but feel free to google 'Gilles Marini shower' and enjoy the view.


Jo P's choice is Josh Holloway, in his role as the delectable Sawyer.


Lacey's choice is Orlando Bloom (yum!)



Lorraine's choice is James Bond himself: Daniel Craig.


Maya's choice (no, for a change it's not Henry Cavill!) is Joe Flanigan of Stargate Atlantis fame.



Romy's choice is Aussie, Simon Baker. (And I must tell you, it was a tough choice. There are a lot of wonderful contenders out there).


Sally's choice is yet another Aussie, Hugh Jackman (and she insisted he had to be wearing nothing but a towel!)


And last, but most certainly not least, Suzanne's choice is Colin Firth, preferably as the wet-shirted Darcy.


Don't forget to check back here next week to see who the winner is.

Well, what an eyecatching post! lol!

Sawyer has to win for me - so bad, but but oh so good. and sexy. and honourable in his own way...

Maya said...

Oh, MY EYES!!! This is like a gorge-fest! Must take another scroll through!

Nice pics minxes.

I voted, probably for the underdog.

And, Maya, you made my day. No one ever picks Flanigan and he, IMHO, is one true hottie! He's such fun to follow on Twitter.

Abbi :-)

Ha! Daniel owes me one now. Will make him pay later ...

Maya said...

Oh Abbi, I'm a huge JF fan (his voice, oh, his voice!!!) Must go and find him on Twitter. Do you follow Nathan Fallon from Castle? He's a hoot too!

Sally Clements said...

I'm off to follow JF on twitter too! Hope HJ doesn't mind, maybe I'll follow him too...
And Hugh in the towel is in the lead..

Sutton Fox said...

Oh, minxes, such a tough choice. I keep having to review the subject matter. Again and again.

Lovely way to start the weekend. Thanks, ladies!

Lacey Devlin said...

Can't talk. Must stare...

Amy said...

What an IMPOSSIBLE task. Choose between one of them? Okay, Hugh Jackman it is. But that's cheating, putting him up in a towel and all. Simon was a close second. Though I think no one does a wet t shirt quite like Colin.

aahgh! I watched Bridget Jones last night and fell for Colin Firth again in all his buttoned up gloriousness.
That kiss in the snow...so romantic and christmassy and just perfect. sigh.

abbi said...

Maya,

Yes, I do follow Nathan F. on Twitter. And, yes, Flanigan's voice is sexy.

JoAnne,

Colin Firth is a very close second for me. You should see him in Love, Actually.

Abbi :-)

Not fair! Not fair! Not fair! You expect me to chose? Just one? Oh the injustice of it all. Hugh in a towel (playing golf? Umm. Yeah. Whatever), Colin in that wet shirt - oh Mr Darcy let's get you out of those wet clothes, and Gilles in the shower (okay I googled it - who didn't?). It's impossible. But I'm feeling sentimental so it's got to be Colin. I'll let Amy make it up to Hugh.
