Re: Most Attractive Male

It is shocking to see "normal" bodies. You get some of that in modern Brit tv as well. It's shocking still to see such diversity of body types, and the way that people react to them. You can have a woman with a little extra weight on her on Brit tv, and she's still treated like a sexual being.
I get bored with modern media's over worked bodies. It depends on the guy, don't get me wrong, some guys can be hot and super fit, but some look so generic and plastic I get bored. A guy can be sexy with charisma without a six pack.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Totally agree with everything said. I like the fattish look in guys myself.. think Volker in season 2 SG:U.

It's weird to always notice how Nimoy seems scrawny in TOS when he's a perfectly normal looking man.



I've noticed that about Brit tv too, sadly cannot say the same about Aus tv (though no one actually watches this )

Re: Most Attractive Male

Spock does look more filled out there than he normally does to me too. Maybe he looks thinner in clothes?

Re: Most Attractive Male

He is straining VERY hard to get that bulb out of the socket!

He's flexed.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Yeah, I think he's flexing there. It's just hard to tell because he doesn't have any visible muscle definition.

Well, I like the look of people with a fairly normal body fat percentage, which is why I mention not finding underwear models with 0% body fat attractive (or many people on tv or in movies these days).

I think Nimoy looks scrawny next to Shatner because of Shatner's very different body type with the broader shoulders and because Nimoy's a few inches taller.

Re: Most Attractive Male

He's also gangly which I think contributes to how darn skinny his arms look in uniform. But everyone of that era is the same.

And yeah, Shatner is a chunkier build, doesn't have that gangly element.

Yeah, it must be the gangliness.

Re: Most Attractive Male

Pike is pretty hot too. I'm considering pushing him as the most attractive if he's considered eligable for TOS choices.
He's about as bad a choice for relationships as Kirk though, as he seems really emotionally unavailable. It took being completely disabled to get him to settle down. It's clear that every woman he knows is in love with him from what we see though.
I was reading the IDW omnibus of the Star Trek:Early Years comic last night, which is pretty good. It had a scene with shirtless hunky Pike getting a medical exam and his yeoman walked in on it and was so turned on she could barely speak coherently lol
