Midweek Mancandy: Christopher Gorham/Sendhil Ramamurthy

The summer season finale of Covert Affairs aired yesterday and in honor of that, our Midweek Mancandy is about the two biggest hotties on the show: Christopher Gorham and Sendhil Ramamurthy.

I have been a fan of both of these guys since before Covert Affairs premiered, and may or may not have been overly excited when I started watching Covert Affairs and they were both in it!

Gorham is most well known for playing Henry on Ugly Betty, though he also starred in Harper's Island, Out of Practice, medical Investigation, Jake 2.0, Odyssey 5, and Popular. A long career full of things most people haven't seen or even heard of. The draw of Gorham is two-fold. First, he seems like (and usually plays characters who are) a nerdy, nice guy. Highly adorable, but also smart and funny. And then secondly, his abs. Never underestimate the power of a really well built guy. Especially one who looks nerdy when fully clothed.

Ramamurthy is most well known for playing Mohinder in Heroes and really hasn't been in much else (at least that I've heard of, except for an episode of Psych). Ramamurthy has the same pleasure (for the viewer) of being shirtless occasionally, and while not as muscled up as Gorham, he still brings the hot. Ramamurthy plays annoyed very well, but also seems like deep down, he is an action guy.

In a battle between the two, though Chris Gorham wins on abs (and they tie on hot arms), I have to give the Mancandy win to Sendhil Ramamurthy (did you even realize it was a competition? everything is a competition). Don't get me wrong, I am all sorts of in love with Gorham. But if I had to choose only one, I would have to go with the more actiony Ramamurthy. But really, why choose when you can watch Covert Affairs and get both!


  1. Christopher Gorham for me all the way!

  2. If cannot argue with your opinion. To be honest, I went back on forth before choosing.
