Hot or Not?

by Insomniac Mummy on October 23, 2009

Can you believe Friday is upon us already? Seriously, I wish this merry-go-round would slow down a little!

So, ‘Hot or not?’ time.

Last week Kristina Rihanoff was a surprise entrant into our ranks. She received the usual mixed response but for me was hot because of her work promoting Breast Cancer Awareness. Oh, and I’d love, love, love to have a figure like hers! Sigh.

This week’s candidate was requested by Karin at Café Bébé and I think it’s a mighty fine request at that. He’s a fine looking family man from down under with a twinkle in his eye and he’s certainly come a long way since his ‘Home and Away’ and ‘Heartbreak High’ days.

I shall keep you on tenterhooks no longer. Here he is:

Simon Baker, hot or not?

I’m swooning as I type. What’s not to like? I could be charmed by him any day. He’s currently starring as Patrick Jane in ‘The Mentalist’(which I need to request as a box set from Santa) and also pops up in one of my favourite guilty pleasure films, ‘The Devil Wears Prada’.

Still swooning here.

I’d better throw the deliberation out to the blogosphere before I become anymore distracted.

You decide…..

If you’d like to make a suggestion for ‘Hot or not?’ drop me a line via my contact form, DM me on Twitter, leave a message on my Facebook Fan Page or just shout very loudly. Remember the interpretation is up to you.

Thank you for brightning up my early morning start ( Car's up again!!)
He is delicious, yum, yum

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!! So freakin' hot he's burning up my computer. I LOVE this delicious man. We're watching "The Guardian" in replacement for "The Mentalist" and if Sky snatches up "The Mentalist" for next season I'll go mental myself and will have to sell my kidney to afford Sky in order to watch. He's one of those men who makes you go a bit wobbly inside…the eyes, I think. ;) And he's 40!!! Love it! In my demographic! (Not that I'm 40 but close!) I wholeheartedly recommend HOT, HOT, HOT and anyone who disagrees should seek help! ;)
You're welcome for the suggestion! ;)

I am going for Hot on this one.


English Mum October 23, 2009 at 8:03 am

It's a big fat NOT for me. Although I've never seen the prog, so maybe I'd change my mind…? x

Yup hot – but am biased as am Australian :)


Erin October 23, 2009 at 9:29 am

It's a Hot here!


TheMadHouse October 23, 2009 at 10:07 am

Luke warm …..


Rebel Mother October 23, 2009 at 10:08 am

Is he gay?

He looks too hot not to be!



whistlejacket October 23, 2009 at 10:33 am

Definitely hot! I don't know who he is so I'm assuming he doesn't have a funny voice or walk in a strange way? So if we're alright on those points too then HOT (ps this feature is my blogging highlight of the week!).


Josie October 23, 2009 at 11:03 am

Ooh defo a HOT – he has just about the right amount of rough and broody for me.

(P.S. Can Clive be featured next week? You said it was up to us to interpret how we like…)



Laura C October 23, 2009 at 11:04 am

Hmmm Not my cuppa tea!!


notsuchayummymummy October 23, 2009 at 11:25 am

Hubba hubba.. hot hot hot!! I think he's just gorgeous!! My husband knows not to speak to me during The Mentalist.


Thrifty Gal October 23, 2009 at 11:39 am

Nice – though, ladies, not gay but married, I seem to recall…


Domestic Goddesque October 23, 2009 at 12:17 pm

Trip-over-my-tongue-hot I'd say. Need some ice-cream to cool down…..


stressheadmummy October 23, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Yep, deffo a hotty!


Liz@Violet Posy October 23, 2009 at 2:54 pm

I think he's hot but as I don't watch The Mentalist yet (waiting for the box set now) I can't entirely be sure :)


rosiescribble October 23, 2009 at 3:42 pm

Definitely hot, and a very good choice from an excited Karin!


Liz (LivingwithKids) October 23, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Oh yes, definitely hot, every time I see the trailers I think 'must watch that' but never get around to it…


allgrownup October 23, 2009 at 5:51 pm

award for you on my blog xx


mumstheboss October 23, 2009 at 6:26 pm

Oh dear, I'm afraid it's a NOT from me. I don't tend to go for blondes and he looks a bit too squeaky clean for my liking!


Lorraine October 23, 2009 at 9:47 pm

Oh yes , he is so HOT, its not even funny, I don't answer the phone or speak to anyone while The Mentalist is on, need my full concentration just to keep breathing while looking at him.


lulu's missives October 24, 2009 at 10:00 pm

I've gone off blonds for a while….but he is Oh so very hot.
And I definitely remember him from Home and Away and he was cute then.


Perfectly Happy Mum October 30, 2009 at 3:24 pm

OH SO HOT!!! I am completely under his charm. I would follow him to the north pole living in an igloo without a bathroom. WITHOUT A BATHROOM!! that's real love baby!


Jo Beaufoix October 30, 2009 at 10:55 pm

OMG hot. And The Mentalist is brilliant. And mumstheboss he is so not squeaky clean. Yum.


notSupermum October 31, 2009 at 10:33 am

Woof woof. I love him. Really.


chompermom December 4, 2009 at 1:25 pm

He's ok. I like his hair. :)
