As we struggle to cope with the quite frankly unbelievable news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns 20 today (March 10), we thought we’d really take a good hard look at the wealth hot guys – some alive, some less so – that roamed the streets of Sunnydale alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar and the Scoobies throughout the show’s seven season run.

After hours of deliberation we’re still unable to settle on which guy takes the crown though (we may just be too greedy, it must be said), so we’ll leave that up to you guys to decide – after a quick reminder of your options below…

First up we have Marc Blucas, who played Buffy’s dreamy (but oh-so-dreary) college boyfriend Riley Finn:

Next up is James Marsters, the show’s Big Bad turned loveable anti-hero Spike:

Then there was Nicholas Brendan as hapless Xander – a man who Buffy rejected so many times he ended up marrying a demon:

And of course David Boreanaz, who adorned bedroom walls everywhere in the ’90s as Buffy’s original love interest – brooding vamp-with-a-soul Angel:
