Dan Levy: Hot or Not, part two
Last week’s post on the ambiguous hot-or-not-ness of MTV golden boy Dan Levy came close to causing an on-line riot. Clearly, one man’s hunk is another man’s hunk of no- thanks. Which is exactly the point. Like Hilary Swank before him, Dan Levy causes us to confront conventional beauty standards and social norms in pursuit of a larger more lasting truth: what is and isn’t hot. Or something.
In that spirit, we present the latest installment in our Dan Levy: Hot or Not series.
Case Study #2: The After Show series finale, the Roosevelt Hotel, Hollywood, July 13, 2010
The assessment: For the co-host of a chat show based on a reality show based on a gaggle of Tinseltown twits, Tuesday was a big day. It marked the series finale of The Hills, and thus the series finale of The After Show. So did Dan bring it for his grand finale? Not really. Last week we were loving the clear-framed glasses, but for the finale it was back to Buddy Holly chic. Those, plus the black tie and two-tone blazer amounted to a look that felt stiff and overly involved. And as for the face—what face? With the glasses and the eyebrows, he looks like he’s wearing one of those dollar-store disguise sets.
The verdict: Dan Levy is not hot. Bring back the see-through specs and we’ll talk.

OH NO HERE WE GO
YOU IN DANJA GURRRL
I am in 100% disagreeance! I thought last week he looked generic and boring, and this week he is fun and quirky. Granted, I didn’t know who he was before these articles, but eh – whatever.
Dudes. This isn’t a debate about whether or not Dan Levy is awesome. It’s about whether or not he looked hot on Tuesday night.
And though I love him, the Aftershow and, yes, his dad, I’m afraid I have never found him hot. Not Tuesday. Not ever. But that doesn’t mean he’s not great!
What about a showdown of Canadian emcess/hosts…Dan Levy vs Ben Mulroney vs Tim Bolen vs George Stroumboulopoulos vs Rick Mercer….take your pick!!!!!
Dan Levy is solid. He is so damn good looking, he looks good in anything he wears. Tuesday night with the specs and the suit is my dream of how a guy should dress;Sophisticated yet dorky.
handsome man, cheesy jacket
First of all, not to be mean, just want to help out for future reference….disagreeance? Isn’t a word.
Secondly, that article is just plain mean. I think Dan seems like he’d be a lovely person and it’s not right to judge him publicly in such a cruel fashion (forgive the pun). Dan, I think you’re adorable!
By your definition, Dan’s entire career is “just plain mean.” Dan judges celebrities publicly for a living, and as a celebrity himself, I’m sure he’s fine with a little harmless debate. If he’s not, he should rethink his career.
The glasses are a smidge too big but other than that, I say hott (with 2 ‘t’s – last week was 3 ‘t’s).
I think hes fantastic! & super good looking! You can tell him I said that!
