The Definitive Ranking Of The Men Of "The Vampire Diaries"

AKA, ten reasons TVD makes everyone so damn thirsty. Other than, you know, the whole vampire thing.

Posted on

10. Matt Donovan

The CW

Like the little human that could, Matt's innocence and adorable can-do attitude seem to be the thing getting him through a life surrounded by vampires, werewolves and hybrids.

9. Elijah Mikaelson

Bob Mahoney / The CW

After he proved himself a good guy, everyone seemed to breathe a sigh of relief when Elijah showed his face in Mystic Falls. We assume this wasn't just because he was likely to come save the day.

8. Mason Lockwood

The CW

The fact Mason didn't make more appearances in TVD will always be one of the show's greatest injustices.

7. Kol Mikaelson

The CW

The face so sweet it could fool almost anyone.

6. Alaric Saltzman

The CW

Heart. Still. Broken.

5. Jeremy Gilbert

The CW

From baby bro Jeremy in the early seasons, to buff, brooding Jeremy in the later, this face (and those arms) will always hold a special place in our hearts.

4. Tyler Lockwood


Each time Tyler disappeared from Mystic Falls, his absence was really felt. Well, the absence of his abs, at the very least.

3. Stefan Salvatore

The CW

Sweet Stefan. Ripper Stefan. Every Stefan in between - we'll take them all, thanks.

2. Niklaus Mikaelson

The CW

The original everyone wanted to hate, and that damn cheeky smirk that made it literally impossible.

1. Damon Salvatore

The CW

Oh, Damon. The bad boy with the blue eyes that we'd happily give our hearts to.
