There are plenty of reasons to be obsessed with Game of Thrones , 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 !) 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?
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.
Ugh, another one who's totally deranged. (See above re: Joffrey.)
Sam + Gilly = 4ever. We'd go to first base with you too, Sam.
Silver fox, amiright?
The innocence! Those puppy-dog eyes!
Littlefinger's ranking would definitely be higher minus the mustache, but in any case, he's still got a classically handsome thing happening.
Pre-"Reek," we couldn't help but notice that Theon was pretty cute.
Betrayal aside, Jorah's rather easy on the eyes.
He changes faces — literally — but we like this one best.
There's a reason he's been such a ladies' man.
Missandei is getting awfully suggestive with Grey Worm, and we totally get it.
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.
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.
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.
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 .
Daario Naharis No. 2
Ummmm two words: That. Butt. 
Oh my god, where do we start?
Loving Jaime Lannister is an emotional roller coaster , but damn, does he clean up well, or what?
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 . . .
