Back in the '90s, every little girl in America got excited for Full House. Why? Because Uncle Jessie was the best thing to happen to Friday nights since the weekend was invented. Even though he was 20 years older than most of the viewing audience and a totally made-up person, we wanted him to be our boyfriend. We didn’t mind that the relationship was one-sided, we loved him enough for the both of us. He was, and remains, everything.
Even now that we're a little more grown up, we still get all crushy when we find a TV character worth our devotion. After all, where better to look to find the most of-the-moment dreamboats than our favorite shows? So, after long and grueling hours of rigorous channel surfing — just kidding, it was super fun — we selected the Top 5 TV hunks who would make the best boyfriends in real life. Because if wanting these fictional characters is wrong, then we don’t want to be right.
Keegan Allen plays the brooding and shy Toby Cavanaugh, step-brother to the scheming Jenna Marshall on Pretty Little Liars, but I'm sure you already knew that. He made this list because he is the most selfless guy on the planet. During his time in Rosewood, Toby has been accused of one terrible thing after another, but he continues to be the stoic, forgiving shoulder to cry on. He has saved the little liars more than a time or two (or hundred).
Even though Toby was part of the A-team, he only did it to protect Spencer, the girl he loves - (insert a collective “awwwww” here). He’s been reliably the best thing to happen to the liars since they learned to run in heels. If we were being relentlessly stalked by a faceless, nameless antagonist, hell bent on ruining our lives, we’d want Toby Cavanaugh in my corner.
Is it Ian Somerhalder’s square jaw, or those blue eyes, or that smirk that melts hearts and minds? There's definitely no shortage of handsome guys on The Vampire Diaries, but there is something that makes Damon the most irresistible of the bunch. Whatever it is, Damon is our favorite Salvatore brother, hands down. Everybody likes a bad boy with a heart of gold, and Damon has shown time and time again that he’s willing to do terrible things for all the right reasons.
He might not be as level headed as Stephan or have a dreamy accent like Enzo, but Damon knows how to show a lady he cares, especially if that lady doesn’t mind a little beheading or dismemberment. How many horrible monsters has Damon saved Elena from? Even though she is just now getting around to remembering it, she’s got the most eligible bachelor in town.
If you have ever watched even one episode of Gossip Girl, you’ve probably fantasized about being Chuck Bass’ girlfriend. Played by the ever-hunky Ed Westwick, Chuck singlehandedly made the pink suit sexy and the Upper East Side the most handsome place on Earth. Chuck was Gossip Girl’s leading lech-turned-sweetheart and made fans swoon every week.
He’s pretty much the whole package — well, discounting Season 1. He’s charming, desperately handsome, wildly rich and a one-woman man, mostly. Nobody can resist a date who can fly you to Paris on his jet and help you pick out the right pair of shoes.
There is nothing better than a man who makes you laugh, and if Jimmy Fallon was your boyfriend, you can bet there would be lots of laughter. Not only does he have all the jokes, he is also just so stinking adorable. Even though he's famous in his own right, he gets totally starstruck by his guests, reminding you that he’s just as big of a fan as any of us. A sense of humor AND humility? Yes please!
If Jimmy Fallon were your boyfriend, he would be the hit of every party, your parents would love him, and he would most definitely talk your boss into giving you that raise. After all, who could say no to that face?
Also known as the charming Dylan O’Brien, Stiles would make the No. 1 best boyfriend for about a million different reasons. First and foremost, he’s a kick-ass friend.
Sure, he’s full of silly shenanigans, but he’s obviously the smartest one in the clique. All of his friends would’ve died a million times over if he hadn’t risked his own life to save them. He never, ever puts himself before the people he cares about, and he's been known to pick friendship over everything else, and we do mean everything. Even though Lydia's rejected him about a million times, he still routinely saves her from a horrible murderous death every week.
That is a seriously good friend, and the absolute best kind of boyfriend. Besides, those dimples are just too much. Just. Too. Much!
