Last week was a close one. Freddie Prinze Jr eeked out a win over Ryan Phillipe in our 90′s Edition.
This week, might not be so close, but it has to be done.
One of my older boys told me I had to do this week’s edition.
Star Trek: Chris Pine vs Benedict Cumberbatch OR (Captain Kirk vs Khan)
I, frankly, don’t really get Star Trek…and I especially don’t get the allure of John Harrison aka Khan, but my teenage boy says he’s awesome, sooooo, I guess I’ll trust him?
I should probably know my audience on this one, knowing that not many teenage boys are voting for a Whatta Man Challenge, but well…it was Khan or Spock. 6 of one, I guess.
Plus, Benedict Cumberpatch wins based on name alone. Hello, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH? Awesome.
Anyhow, let’s have a look at the good guy vs the bad guy…
I have to say, that visually this isn’t a contest, in my mind.
I tried to find less attractive pictures of our Captain Kirk to make for a more even playing field against Khan. Yeah, basically impossible. It turns out Chris Pine doesn’t have a bad angle.
Let’s have a look in black and white…
Also, he’s in a show called Sherlock Holmes on the BBC, which is apparently another super-geeky cult fave (sorry).
Sometimes cool only gets you so far. Eyes on the other hand…
I’ve heard that the new Star Trek movie is really good too.
Have you seen it?
Do you ever wonder what men look like in chunky sweaters or coats without shirts?
Well, here you go…
And the ultimate face off…
Khan vs Kirk…
Anyhow, you be the judge.
Pine vs Cumberbatch.
