20. Tim Gunn, Tim Gunn's Guide to Style

Tim Gunn's professorial smarts on Project Runway and his long-gone makeover series Tim Gunn's Guide to Style make his conservative work attire damn fetching. He's a saucy and sexy guy, and I'm not just saying that because I believe my impersonation of him is Nobel-worthy.

19. Joe Rogan, Fear Factor

I hated Fear Factor, and I wasn't much a fan of Joe Rogan's Super Amped hosting skills -- but I'll give the man one thing: He was hilarious on Newsradio,

Christina Hendricks Drives Man Mad on Ktla Morning Show

Christina Hendricks is the sexiest person on Mad Men. Forget Jon Hamm, John Slattery, or January Jones. They're all beautiful people, but Christina Hendricks is the perfect epitome of sexy — you can ask just about anyone who has ever seen her on the show. Her character, office manager Joan, radiates confidence and coolness, and seems to be way beyond her thirty-five years. Sure, she was a little catty in season one, but as the show progressed, she became one of the most lovable characters on television.

That proved to be a little too much on the Ktla Morning Show yesterday, on which Hendricks appeared as an interviewee. She left her interviewer quite speechless just by going so far as to mention taking a bath, which caused former MTV VJ Brian McFayden to turn into, as Entertainment Weekly called it, "a blubbering, pre-pubescent mess."

Obviously the ramifications were awkward.

Christina Hendricks Tongue Ties Talk Show Host

Stepping out for a promotional gig, Christina Hendricks made an appearance on Ktla’s breakfast show with Brian McFayden today (July 30).

The “Mad Men” babe obviously had a flustering effect on the host when she talked about finding out that she’s up for an Emmy this year.

She explained, “I had to be at work really, really early that morning and I was running my bath. I had everything timed out to get every last minute of sleep because it was 5.30 in the morning.”

McFayden couldn’t seem to get the bath image out of his mind, and later in the interview he seemed to still be stuck in that thought.

“I'm saying you're a beautiful woman and I would like... the bath... the way you made... I mean, I'm stumbling on my words... what I'm trying to say, is you were drawing a bath, you're making a bath

'Mad Men' star Christina Hendricks steals man's ability to speak
Christina Hendricks can add “leaving men speechless” to her list of super powers. During the Mad Men star’s appearance on Ktla morning show yesterday, the mere reference to a bath (where should would presumably be…naked) turned poor Brian McFayden (yes, the former MTV VJ) into a blubbering, pre-pubescent mess: “You were drawing a bath…and making a bath for yourself, and I was just thinking…that’s awesome.” Watch the awkwardness unfold below:

Fyi Brian, Joan would never go for a guy who loses his cool so easily. Do you think this sort of reaction ever gets old for Hendricks?

When Christina Hendricks’ ‘bath’ mention left Brian McFayden speechless

When Christina Hendricks’ ‘bath’ mention left Brian McFayden speechless
Melbourne, July 30 – Christina Hendricks usually leaves men speechless with her looks, but this time just her words did the trick.

According to News.com.au, when Ktla anchor Brian McFayden asked Hendricks about the moment she found out about the nomination, she replied saying that she was running her bath at the time – leaving the anchor agape.

The interview moved on, but the picture evidently lingered in McFayden’s mind.

Hendricks recently came under the limelight when British MP Lynne Featherstone described her as the ideal woman for young girls to emulate. (Ani)
