Since its premiere in 2008, HBO vampire series True Blood has seen a continuous spike in viewership—spawning a die-hard fanbase for its addictive storyline and kitschy characters. Based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris, this TV phenomenon, which garnered a number of nods during the recent Emmy Awards, has mastered the same mix of romance, suspense, and myth that made The Twilight Saga a worldwide hit—that is, with less cheese, more sex, and way more blood.
Riveting plot twists and engaging, often laugh-out-loud dialogue aside, what FN likes most about True Blood is a no-brainer—in fact, it goes just about skin-deep. Hot guys, both human and supernatural, grace every episode—spurring ideal man fantasies, prompting love triangle predictions, and basically making the show a gratuitous feast for female eyes.
Check out the gallery below for 10 True Blood men we love—some for their handsome miens, others for their hot bods, and still others for their irresistible sense of honor.
True Blood is on HBO/HBO HD every Monday at 9:00 PM. The Season 3 finale will air on October 4, 2010.
