'Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon: 12 Reasons Norman Reedus Is So Dang Hot

Norman ReedusDaryl Dixon is our favorite character on The Walking Dead. FACT. Okay, I guess it's theoretically possible that someone out there prefers Rick or Michonne or Lil' Asskicker or Carl's hat or something, but that person would be wrong. Horribly wrong. There's a reason for those billion-plus web memes that read IF DARYL DIES WE RIOT, and that reason is Norman Reedus, the only man on television who can pull off that ratty-looking hairstyle and still make every female on the planet want to climb him like the rope in gym class.

Norman Reedus isn't classically handsome. He's not a clean-cut guy meant to play the lead in a lighthearted rom-com. He's a little dirty, a little rough-looking, and so sexy it's downright ridiculous.

For the diehard fans and every other carbon-based lifeform, here are 12 examples of why Norman Reedus is the hottest guy on television.

Andrew Lincoln is awesome gets 86 million hits. Rick grimes is awesome gets 8 million hits. No contest.

props for including his iconic Boondock Saints days and props to him for sporting an old english D ball cap.

No argument from my end. Dixon is a god to my little nerd; she wants an ear necklace for her birthday.

The gun show is the No. 1 reason and then we don't need any others. Whoever put a crossbow in his hands so he could flex those lovely arms is a genius.

Yep. His arms. Completely agree.
