Ten Geeks and Nerds I'd Put on My 'To Do List'

By Sarah Carlson | Seriously Random Lists | July 26, 2013 |


Yeah yeah yeah, the Pajiba 10 is all well and good. (Fine, it’s fabulous.) I love the celebrities on that running list, but I must admit, my tastes also tend toward the nerdier. What’s sexier than a great mind? Throw in a nice smile and geeky interests and self-deprication, and I’m hooked. So here are 10 of my favorite people from various pop culture and news circles I definitely have on my bunkable list.

Stephen Colbert

Just try and beat him in a Tolkein-off.

Ira Glass

Although I may spend most of the time contemplating my existence.

Chris Hardwick

Don’t base your judgment of him off “The Talking Dead.” He’s fun on The Nerdist.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Just check out this astrophysicist’s snazzy vest.

This image was too good not to also include.

Chris Hayes

He’s almost annoyingly smart, but the best part is that he knows how to present a smart news show.

Felicia Day

Gotta love redheads.

Jon Meacham

So my tastes can skew to the older history professor type. I make no apologies.

Chris Kluwe

So, this is kinda cheating, I know. But this Oakland Raiders punter is an avid gamer and has an adorably nerdy laugh.

Patton Oswalt

What isn’t attractive about this man’s ability to improvise a lengthy, elaborate Star Wars movie pitch?

Rachel Maddow

Always and forever. Here’s a great clip of her in full geeky action.
