The Definitive Ranking Of Taylor Swift's Music Video Boyfriends

I've narrowed it down to the top 8.

Posted on

And so everyone probably knows that she has about 24 music videos. Now I don't have any actual statistics, but I'm going to say at least 17 of these co-star a music video boyfriend.

So, I've decided to rank them on a very scientific scale. It looks like this:

1. Likability/Personality
2. Boyfriend Skills
3. Cuteness

Each category will be out of ten points with an overall total out of 30. I've never had a boyfriend or met Taylor Swift, so obviously I'm the perfect person to judge this... Here we go.

Likability/Personality: 1/10

I apologize if any of you like this guy, but based solely on this video I think he's a jackass. He walks around like he's the hottest guy in the world. (for more of my opinion on his hot-ness, see 'cuteness' below)

Boyfriend Skills: 1/10

Obviously terrible. The whole point of the video is that whatever's he's done to piss of T Swift has opened up a 'blank space' on her list of boyfriends. I mean, it is cool of him to go horseback riding with her but that's about it.

Cuteness: 7/10

This guy's clearly beautiful, but I docked a few points because he always seems to have this smug look on his face, you know? But he looks great in a suit.

Overall Score: 9/30

Likability/Personality: 7/10

He seems super laid back and adorable and sweet, which is great. But then I had to take into consideration the whole cheating thing and that knocked off a couple points.

Boyfriend Skills: 6/10

Pre-cheating, he seemed like a pretty solid S/O. He cuddled on the couch, and played cards- that's romantic, right?

Cuteness: 8/10

This may be biased, but I think Stephen Coletti is just the most adorable guy ever. Look at those dimples and tell me I'm wrong. LOOK AT THEM.

Overall Score: 21/30

Likability/Personality: 7/10

He seems like a perfect small-town teenage guy. He runs through fields, drives a truck with optimal room for cuddling in the back, and one can only assume that him and Taylor listened to Tim McGraw together. How nice of him.

Boyfriend Skills: 8/10

Before the inevitable break-up, he seemed to be a great boyfriend. They looked real cute and in love, which means he must have some boyfriend skills.

Cuteness: 7/10

I think he's a cutie, and I dig the 2009 shaggy hair and button up cowboy-like shirt.. That worked in his favor for me.

Overall Score: 22/30

Likability/Personality: 8/10

I think this guy seems pretty genuine, and smart, and cultured. I mean, he was dressed really nice and he's in Paris and he's making Taylor laugh over a cup of espresso. Hello, dreamy.

Boyfriend Skills: 8/10

He ranks pretty high. He made Taylor believe that love could begin again. We don't really get to see him be a boyfriend, but he makes a great first impression.

Cuteness: 8/10

He's got great hair, great fashion sense, great eyes and perfect facial hair. Go, Valdimir.

Overall Score: 24/30

Likability/Personality: 8/10

He's the nicest guy around- likes row boating in his spare time, helps unpack, and dances in the living room.

Boyfriend Skills: 10/10

He rules this category, obviously. He wouldn't let anything get in the way of their love. He was such a good boyfriend Taylor let him become her husband. Can it get any better than that?

Cuteness: 8/10

This guy's jawline could cut glass, and he's got great hair. He also looks far too good in a hoodie.

Overall Score: 26/30

Likability/Personality: 9/10

He has a great sense of humor, he stops by your locker for chats, and he helps you out in science. He's a great guy, no question.

Boyfriend Skills: 9/10

This was a little tricky because even though Taylor's got the hots for him, he's not her boyfriend. He does seem like a good boyfriend to the girl he likes though. And I considered the fact that he's a great friend to Taylor, which leads me to believe that if he only knew she loved him he'd be a great boyfriend to her too.

Cuteness: 9/10

Tyler Hilton is beautiful in that non-overwhelming way where he looks like the hot guy you liked in high school as opposed to a model.

Overall Score: 27/30

Personality/Likability: 10/10

I mean, he's a little dorky and loves to talk and make you laugh. What's he missing?

Boyfriend Skills: 8/10

He seems to put up with a lot of girlfriend drama from Taylor's brunette look-alike, which takes a lot of boyfriend patience. He also skips the texting and goes right to holding up signs to you in the window, which is just adorable and old time-y.

Cuteness: 10/10

Lucas Till is adorable- from the blonde hair and crooked smile to the baseball shirt. He gets all of the cuteness points. All of them.

Overall Score: 28/30

Likability/Personality: 10/10

He's traditional, chivalrous, a good dancer, and does everything to get to his true love. I like him. I like him a lot.

Boyfriend Skills: 10/10

He treats Taylor with nothing but respect and great manners. He also leads the dance, and asks her dad for permission to marry her. Nailed it, Justin. Nailed it.

Cuteness: 10/10

He's beautiful. Look at him. Even with Romeo style sideburns and a poofy collared shirt his immaculate facial hair and perfect smile prevail.

Overall Score: 30/30

In Conclusion:

All it really takes to be an outstanding music video boyfriend to everyone's favorite gal pal Taylor Swift is to dress nicely, have a good sense of humor, and be a good guy.
