Anyone can declare themselves “Queen of the Geeks”, as one minor celebrity apparently has done, but just saying so won’t make the title stick. Especially when there’s dozens of better candidates, like the following list of unbelievably gorgeous geekly greats.
Jeri Ryan, aka Seven of Nine. Pretty much the only reason to watch Star Trek: Voyager. Voluptuous and beautiful.
Yvonne Strahovski, who played the stunning but deadly spy Sarah Walker on the cult classic geek-becomes-super-spy show, Chuck. A better candidate for queen than nearly anyone else not on this list.
Tricia Helfer, as Number Six in the Battlestar Galactica reboot. For four seasons and a mini-series, she was the inhumanly beautiful face of the human-hunting killer robots. Geeks already worship her, being Queen would be a step down.
Morena Baccarin as Inara Serra the Companion, from the cut-down-too-soon sci-fi show Firefly. Beauty, grace, confidence: Inara had it all, and Morena portrayed it perfectly. If you didn’t fall in love with her at least a little bit, you have no libido.
Erica Cerra has a long list of geekish acting credits, but is best known as the Deputy Jo Lupo in the Sci Fi Channel series “Eureka”. I’ve only seen one episode, and she wasn’t in it, but after she was suggested to me earlier today, I knew I had to include her. She could easily make Queen, and by a wide margin over most of her competitors.
Which only goes to show: if you’re so presumptuous as to declare yourself the Queen of the Geeks, be aware you’re up against some very talented competition, and you will not come out on top. Better to be more humble and settle for being adored.
