The Hottest Benedicts of 2013

Benedict Cumberbatch

There’s just something about Benedicts. It might be the way the name turns your tongue into a snake when you whisper it out loud: “Ben-e-dict.” Or the way their presence makes you feel so fancy. Benedicts were everywhere this year and more than one touched us in a special place. Here is a rundown of the hottest Benedicts of 2013:

Benedict Cumberbatch

CucumberPackage starred in 27 of the top 30 films containing a Benedict this year! This Benedict deserves an Oscar or at least a thank you fruit basket for getting us through what could have been a very Benedict-less 2013.

Pope Benedict XVI

We just cannot resist a Benedict in a hat, let alone one of the (former) most powerful men in the world! Fine, religious guys aren’t for everyone, but the list isn’t called “Hottest Benedicts of 2013 Who Know How to Use a Condom.”

William Benedict

Possibly the first documented sexy Benedict, he was an extra in the classic film, The Sting. We just re-watched that movie and he’s still looking good as Roulette Dealer #1.

Eggs Benedict

These eggs were steaming hot on all our brunch plates this year. Eggs Benedict is a hearty but sensitive dish, and it something your friends and parents can get along with.

Benedict “Justin Timberlake”

Rumor has it Justin’s good friends actually call him BJT. This makes complete sense, as Justin is a total Benedict! We met him one especially Benedict night this year, and he was as Benedict in person as he is Benedict on the dance floor.
