You were thirsty from a very early age.

1. Adam Saunders (Heath Carroll on Blue Water High)

ABC

To be fair, all the guys in Blue Water High were extremely good looking. But, Heath was different... he was kind, caring, and had those gorgeous, puppy dog eyes. Looking back, you actually got a bit jealous when his character dated Fly.

2. Chris Foy (Matt Leyland on Blue Water High)

ABC

At the beginning of the series, Matt was written off as the generic "smart guy". But then he took off his shirt, and exposed that damn nipple ring. Holy freakin' guacamole.

3. Ryan Corr (Sheng Zemmett on Silversun)

ABC

Never have you wanted to be trapped on a spaceship more than when you watched Silversun. There was something about Sheng, and those freshly-gelled spikes that got you frothing real hard.

4. Jack Blumeanu (Noah on Noah & Saskia)

ABC/CBBC

Watching Noah & Saksia made you want to find your own Prince Charming online. But that dream was cut short when your mum banned you from spending too much time on Habbo Hotel. Ugh, laaame.

5. Brett Tucker (Max Regnery on The Saddle Club)

ABC

He was the older guy you weren't supposed to be crushing on, but you always dreamed of one day finding a guy who was just as caring and dreamy as Max was.

6. James O'Dea (Red O'Malley on The Saddle Club)

ABC

Every time you watched The Saddle Club, you would fall in love with Red all over again. He was so good with the horses, and probably had some pretty strong muscles from cleaning out the stables.

8. Matthew Waters (Bronson Twist on Round The Twist)

ABC

The episode where Bronson accidentally swallowed a rare fish, and gained a very special sort of propeller made you look at him in a whole different light.

13. Angus McLaren (Lewis McCartney on H20: Just Add Water)

Network Ten

Okay, real talk guys. Lewis was GOALS. He was talented, smart, and always helped out the H20 girls when they needed him. And yes, you may or may not have cried when he left the show in Season Three.

14. James Sorensen (Declan Napier on Neighbours)

Network Ten

Everyone thought Declan was the ultimate bad boy, but you always believed he had a good heart. And he finally proved it when he accepted his responsibilities as a single parent. DADDY AF.

15. Joshua Marshall Clark (Ben Johnson on Parallax)

ABC

You didn't so much as want to date Ben, but more just follow him around to explore all the different worlds. Wait, was young you try to friendzone Ben? Hmm.

18. James Pearson (Simon Tudor on Jeopardy)

ABC/BBC One

Technically, James was a British actor on an Australian TV show, but that's besides the point. You were always rooting for Simon (even when he went kind of crazy and started "seeing" Mr Simmons and Melissa).

21. Nicolas Dunn (Hector Garcia on Mortified)

ABC

Seriously, Hector was SO underrated in Mortified. He was loyal, smart, and always looked out for Taylor. And how did she repay him? By calling him a DORK.

23. And Jade Gatt and Ryan Lappin (Cheez TV)

Network Ten

The Cheez TV hosts were always going to be a package deal, and tbh you were ready.
