Monday Man-Off: Hunger Games

Last weeks winner was Orlando Bloom in our Lord of the Rings Man-Off!

In honor of the Hunger Games opening I decided to do this weeks Man-Off between the leading men
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale). I actually have yet to read the books so I don't know if knowing their characters would change my mind. But I definitely have some opinions based on their looks!!

So lets start with Gale the character played by Liam Hemsworth. I heard a rumor that he's engaged to his girlfriend Miley Cyrus which is sad for us single women but congratulations for them if it's true.

He is so gorgeous in that manly kind of way. But he still has a soft soulful look in his eyes like he wants to have a deep conversation about life with you. I mean maybe he's a dummy but I like to imagine he's thoughtful and deep.

Then we have Peeta played by Josh Hutcherson. He obviously has a little more of a youthful look than Liam but that's probably just because he is younger. Josh looks like the type of guy you would meet in a coffee shop reading a romance novel. Then you would be so taken by his romantic side that you would completely forget the fact that he's not ultra manly like Liam but soft and sweet. 

Ok so I don't know either of the characters so my decision is based purely off of their looks and my imagined personalities. I would definitely say that Gale is the hottest I mean look at his shoulders. He makes me just want to hug him for hours. 

But on the other hand I think I usually go with the Peeta type more. The guy that is subtly attractive but has an incredible personality and is super thoughtful. 

It's tough but since this Man-Off is really just about hotness and not real life compatibility I have to go with Gale (Liam Hemsworth) as my winner.

Who do you pick? Do the books/characters change you opinion of who's hotter?


  1. Gale is definitely a hottie, but if you read the books you will hate him (at least I do lol). Peeta is adorbs and I would definitely go for him! lol

  2. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and read the books ASAP. They're amazing.

    Anyway, I'm one of the few people that has been Team Gale from the beginning. Then when I found out Liam was cast as Gale for the movies, I was sold. J-Hutch is super cute and I had a huge (cougar-y) crush on him. Had... Yep, he's the same heigh as me. 5ft 7. I just can't date someone the same height as me, so that turned me off of Mr. Hutcherson. And I wasn't a huge Peeta fan to begin with soooo, I'm just a superfan of Team Gale.

  3. I agree Peeta is who I'd pick too.

    Happy Monday.


  4. Aww such a hard decision! I actually just finished the first book over the weekend and am already halfway through the second and I think as far as characters go, I like Peeta more.

    You should definitely read the book though! I was a bit skeptical at first, but I love the whole Hunger Game story now!

  5. It's so hard to pick. I think they're both OK. I'm pretty indifferent!

  6. How did I miss this one! I read The Hunger Games last weekend and plan to see the movie maybe this weekend. I would say the character of Gale would be a favorite although I do like Peeta. But as far as the actors playing them...I have to go with Josh. I might think that Liam is better looking but every time I see him I see Miley Cyrus and it just makes me nauseous. :-)
