Throw on another log to the fire because we are bringing the heat for this year’s Christmas special!

There’s nothing like the holiday season to watch and rewatch our favorite festive shows and movies. What makes the viewing experience even better is that there are certain characters out there that make us blush more red than Santa’s outfit and Rudolph’s nose put together. Before we all knew it, we realized that ‘Christmas Crushes’ is definitely a thing so we might as well do what we do best…and rank it! So join Tuong and Santa’s Elite Squad of Naughty Elves Cassie Pyatt, Justin Otto, and Gillian Manchee as they perform a Christmas miracle and come up with a Top 5 Holiday Hotties list for you all to enjoy!

Ground Rules

  • You can think of this episode also as “Christmas Crushes”
  • Nominations can come from movies, tv, books, etc. and even real life! (Although we leaned more fictional in today’s episode)
  • Fictional nominations don’t necessarily have to be from a point blank Christmas movie or show. As long as the scene they were in was Christmas or if it’s Christmas adjacent, then we’d count it with the right arguments.
  • Tie breakers will go towards the nominations that feel more Christmas-y
  • We also settled tie breakers with whoever had the most f*** energy.
  • Group nominations are allowed if they make sense as a team rather than a single nomination
