Listography: Top 5 Famous Folk I Used To Fancy

So this is the theme over on Kate Takes 5 this week – and I feel embarrassed just thinking about it!  Looking through MrsSlummyMummy‘s list – I realised that a couple of our crushes were the same – thank goodness!

Ok, so I’m going to own up and admit to my teenage crushes!

1. Jake Ryan

I LOVED Jake Ryan (and still love the ‘idea’ of him) and always wished I was Samantha Baker *sigh*


2. David Schwimmer

I know – he’s such a geek!  But there was something about him when he was in Friends…  I think it’s because he and my (then) boyfriend (who is now Hub) looked a bit similar.  Somehow, I don’t see the similarities anymore (my husband’s much better looking!).



3. Rob Lowe

I don’t need to explain this one.  I still have a crush on him!



4. David Wheaton

American tennis player.  I had the opportunity to ball girl for the Beckenham Tennis Tournaments for two years when I was about 13 or 14.  Every single girl had a thing for him.  I still remember his car license plate: H236 VUY  At least we thought that was his car, but no one knew for sure!


I’ve seen a recent picture of him.  He’s not that attractive anymore.  Come to think of it, I don’t think he ever was!


5. Grant Show

He was in Melrose Place in the 90s.  He was a bit of a bad boy and I couldn’t wait to watch him on every week!



How embarrassing?  Go on over to Kate Takes 5 to see all the other teenage crushes ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. OH YES! All of them! All! And I see the resemblance between your husband and David Schwimmer, but your husband is better looking.

  2. Oh Jake Ryan. I think he’s the hottest thing ever to this day. Pretty good in Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken too.

  3. I still quite like all of them. Apart from David Wheaton – WHAT was I thinking??@Ixy – I don’t think I ever saw Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken…. Oh – was that the one about horses or something? He just didn’t do it for me in anything apart from 16 Candles!

  4. I still don’t know who Jake Ryan is.I love geeks but Ross never did it for me but he was better than Chandeler.Poor bloke!
