Monday Man Candy – The Originals


Alright, confession time.  I’m addicted to The Vampire Diaries.  I say it like that because I ignored the whole vampire/werewolf thing for a really long time.  I never got into Twilight or True Blood, it just wasn’t my thing.  Last summer, I needed a new show to binge watch on Netflix and a friend pretty much demanded that I give Vampire Diaries a go.  Reluctantly, I cozied up on the couch for the first episode and found it to be a bit cheezy but overall I was intrigued.  I decided to watch the next episode just to see and before I knew it, I was halfway through the third season and totally obsessed.

If there’s one thing the show does well, it’s men.  From the very start, there is plenty of eye candy in the likes of Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig, and Matthew Davis.  But in Season 2, you meet a new group of vampires, the Originals.  As in the original family of vampires, and man, they’re hot.

To celebrate the green light of the upcoming CW show The Originals, we are enjoying their dashing good looks for this week’s Monday Man Candy.  Enjoy!

Meet Klaus

The most powerful and feared of the originals.  He’s a hybrid (half vampire/half werewolf).  He’s got amazing dimples and man, those lips.  One minute Klaus (Joseph Morgan) can charm your socks off, the next he’s the perfect villain. Really, what more does a girl want?


Meet Elijah

The classy brother.  He’s more even mannered and respectful, a great contrast to Klaus.  More importantly, the man can wear a suit.  And that jawline!

Meet Kol

He’s not as big of a player as Klaus or Elijah but when Kol shows up, it’s a good day because he brings nothing but trouble.  Everything about him says cocky, carefree, bad boy.  Sign me up!

Now, Kol is currently dead but by looking at next week’s promo, we haven’t seen the last of him.  I hope he continues his run and joins the rest of the cast for The Originals.
