Welcome to the second set of matches in the Tournament of Hotties! We have four very interesting pairs for you today, drawing from the first half of the British Hunks bracket.
Idris Elba (1) vs. Tom Mison (16)
If you look up “sexy” in the dictionary you’ll find a description of somebody like our friend Idris. Sometimes when I gaze upon his visage I can almost see squiggly heat lines coming off of my computer screen.
Tom Mison is also quite the treat for the eyes. There were very few reasons to watch season 2 of Sleepy Hollow and he was chief among them (season 3 isn’t half bad so far though, so you should consider watching!). He’s pretty, basically.
Jude Law (8) vs. Chiwetel Ejiofor (9)
Listen, I have been known to describe Mr. Law as a “greasy dinosaur” but if I’m perfectly honest I wouldn’t vomit at the prospect of meeting him in person. He’s a dish, just not one I would order. But I know many of you feel differently so here, look at his face!
This gentleman, on the other hand, is my fave (as has been well documented across the internet). If I were to sum up his hotness, I would have to quote the pageant theme song from Miss Congeniality: he’s beauty and he’s grace.
John Boyega (5) vs. Russell Tovey (12)
John Boyega is a problem for me because he is basically a child but… he is also hot and charming. So looking at him makes me want to put myself in jail. LEAVE ME ALONE, JOHN! I JUST WANT TO LIVE!
Russell Tovey on the other hand is a grown man and I feel no qualms about ogling his adorable face and “hot bod.”
One Direction Member of Your Choice (4) vs. Colin Firth (13)
This is a matchup for the ages. Literally! First we have five youths some of whom I believe are only recently able to drink legally in our United States. But I have been reliably informed that a number of our readers would enjoy spending a romantic evening with one or all of them. So picture your fave and decide if they’re hotter than the challenger!
Conversely, Mr. Firth is a bit long in the tooth to be considered a sexually viable prospect. But so long as we can picture his younger self emerging from a lake with a thin white shirt clinging to his youthful torso, the thirst will live.
Voting will close on Wednesday at 11PM ET!
