It’s safe to say that “Game of Thrones” and “The Bachelor” franchise are two of America’s most recognizable and popular television phenomenons. Whether you are a loyal viewer or you only know about them through pop culture references, they have permeated our social consciousness as a nation.
That’s why it’s time to address the obvious, which is that there are some seriously Bachelor-worthy dudes on GOT. The much anticipated season 6 finale of the HBO drama airs on Sunday, and we are all really going to miss having appointment-viewing to finish off our weekends. But that’s the good thing about the internet: a slideshow of all the hottest men in Westeros and beyond can live on in perpetuity while we begin the arduous wait until next spring.
Now yes, it’s bit of a problem that they all exist in a fictional, medieval world where those who are lucky enough to still be alive in season 6 will probably meet an untimely demise via dragon fire or ice zombie. But that doesn’t mean that (most) of them don’t deserve a little hypothetical action inside a fantasy suite before then.
Plus anyone who watches both shows knows that most of the men of GOT would completely destroy the slew of protein powder-obsessed bros that sit around in their mansion whining about having to share a girlfriend. Except for maybe that guy Chad. He was rogue as hell, and now that I think about it, he’d have made an excellent Ramsay Bolton sidekick.
There’s no better way to creep everyone out around you than to do weird things with meat. But I digress…
So we were allowed a peek into a beautiful, magical world in which GOT characters could become America’s most eligible bachelors, who would lead the pack? Unfortunately, we’ve lost some straight up studly contenders as the seasons have gone on: Oberyn Martell, Robb Stark and even my man Stannis Baratheon. Sure, he was terrifying and he had his daughter murdered because his sidepiece told him to…but was he really any worse than Juan Pablo?
Despite having lost some of the greats throughout the years there are still some rose-worthy hotties left heading into Season 6’s finale that would be worth getting to know a little better in a hot tub over a glass of cheap champagne.
So JoJo, here are 15 other guys that are equally as likely to become your husband as whoever you got engaged to at the end of your season.
