The women of “CSI”: who’s the hottest?

on

When I did a post on women who were turning 50 in 2008,

I was dismayed to find few previous AfterEllen.com mentions of one of

those women, Marg Helgenberger.

As it turns out, we have not

been too attentive of CSI, in general. I have to confess, I

don’t watch any of the CSI shows regularly. I thought it was

because of the goriness, but my love of all things Dexter sort

of blew that theory out of the water. I have, however, always been appreciative

of the CSI casting directors’ taste in women. Despite the fact

that they let my favorite

investigator go.

Now, research has confirmed that, indeed, the women of CSI

are hot. Duh. I won’t go into the particulars of the survey because,

frankly, it’s lame. But, in one of the questions, researchers asked

men which of three CSI women they’d most like to romance: Calleigh

Duquesne (Emily Procter) of CSI: Miami, Catherine Willows

(Marg Helgenberger) of the original CSI or Stella Bonasera

(Melina Kanakaredes) of CSI: New York.

The results? Calleigh/Emily

won, with 37 percent of the vote.

Next was Catherine/Marg with

34 percent.

Bonasera/Kanakaredes was third

with 27 percent.

Well, OK. Although I personally

have never seen the attraction of Kanakaredes (I’m a little afraid of

her hair), I can live with the ranking. But why just those three? I

can think of four other hot women on the various incarnations of

CSI
— and I’m not even a die-hard fan. Sofia Curtis (Louise Lombard),

for example.

Or the very epitome of hotness,

Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander).

And what about Linsday Monroe

(Anna Belknap)?

Wendy Simms (Liz Vassey)

deserves a spot, too, although I’m not crazy about Simms. I liked Vassey

better on The Tick. (Although she should’ve been American

Maid, not Captain Liberty. The real Tick knew nothing of this Captain

Liberty person. But I digress.)

Of course, no research is as

valid as what we do right here at AfterEllen.com. So

let’s do a study of our own. Who’s the hottest woman of CSI?

Which one would you like to be with in, you know, that special way?

Oh, and Sara Sidle is not

eligible. That just wouldn’t be fair.
