It was hard choosing someone this week. I haven't done anything exciting that would even constitute a "hottie of the week." I thought about Ashton Kutcher, only because hubby and I watched The Guardian this week, but I thought there's got to be someone else I can choose... I just wasn't feeling Ashton. Sorry Ashton fans...
Instead, I decided to go with a man who's actually helped me along with my career as an author and really has absolutely no idea. That man... is Mr. Ben Browder.
You see, I first saw Ben on Farscape, battling weird space creatures and looking all-around HAWT in those tight leather pants. Now, he's on the show Stargate as Lt. Col. Cameron Mitchell. Along with Claudia Black, also on Farscape. Learning they were going to be on Stargate together was like a Sci-Fi geek's wet dream. And praise God, he kept the tight leather pants in his wardrobe!! :D
Now, you might recognize him, not from Farscape or Stargate, but because I've used Ben Browder as the "model" for Wade McAllister, the 3rd hero of my B*E*A*S*T* books. You can see for yourself on my exclusive B*E*A*S*T* blog.
Also, Ben's character name from Farscape was "John Crichton", and that is where I lifted the name from for my character's title in HEARTS ETERNAL: His Grace Laith Moreland, Third Duke of Crichton.
Yes, I am a Sci-Fi geek. Always have been. I remember as a kid eating dinner and watching re-runs of Star Trek (not quite old enough to have seen the first run of those shows *wink*). I also remember drooling over Jonathan Frakes back in the day, or "Number One", as Capt. Picard called him in TNG.
But I digress. Ben Browder is long overdue to make it to my weekly list of sexy men.
Congratulations, Ben Browder. You're Becka's Hottie of the Week!
(Wow, I LOVE that jacket...)
