Ranking the 22 Hottest Guys on Game of Thrones

Jan 25 2015 - 1:00pm

There are plenty of reasons to be obsessed with Game of Thrones [1], including all the handsome eye candy. Over the past four seasons, we've loved — and, in some cases, lost — more than a few hot characters, and while some of them may have been complicated or crazy or downright evil, we couldn't help but notice that they're also good-looking. So to get excited for season five (and upcoming IMAX screenings [2]!) we've ranked the show's sexiest characters. And although we tried to make it about looks alone, some of the characters are just too compelling to ignore. All that being said, take a trip down memory lane with a look at the 22 hottest guys on Game of Thrones. Do you agree?

Joffrey Baratheon

Honestly, we have to make a looks-only exception here, because it's just way too hard to separate Joffrey's looks from his totally deranged character.

Ramsay Snow

Ugh, another one who's totally deranged. (See above re: Joffrey.)

Samwell Tarly

Sam + Gilly = 4ever. We'd go to first base with you too, Sam.

Stannis Baratheon

Silver fox, amiright?

Podrick Payne

The innocence! Those puppy-dog eyes!

Petyr Baelish

Littlefinger's ranking would definitely be higher minus the mustache, but in any case, he's still got a classically handsome thing happening.

Theon Greyjoy

Pre-"Reek," we couldn't help but notice that Theon was pretty cute.

Jorah Mormont

Betrayal aside, Jorah's rather easy on the eyes.

Jaqen H'ghar

He changes faces — literally — but we like this one best.

Tyrion Lannister

There's a reason he's been such a ladies' man.

Grey Worm

Missandei is getting awfully suggestive with Grey Worm, and we totally get it.

Ned Stark

OK, we'll admit it: we're probably a little biased because Ned's character is just so good, but this guy's a stud.

Loras Tyrell

You can't help but love those curls. You just can't.

Daario Naharis No. 1

The original Daario Naharis is basically just like Beast in Beauty and the Beast — when he transforms into a hot human, that is.

Khal Drogo

Drogo wins Daenerys's heart, and it's very much deserved.

Prince Oberyn Martell

We did a double take when Oberyn arrives at King's Landing.

Renly Baratheon

He only appears in eight episodes, but Renly's good looks make a lasting impression.


It was pretty much all over once we saw him shirtless [3].

Daario Naharis No. 2

Ummmm two words: That. Butt. [4]

Robb Stark

Oh my god, where do we start?

Jaime Lannister

Loving Jaime Lannister is an emotional roller coaster [5], but damn, does he clean up well, or what?

Jon Snow

Jon Snow for the WIN! He's the cutest, broodiest, bravest character with — let's face it — the best hair, too. Oh, and let's never forget that time in the cave . . .
