Random Thursday: First Celebrity Crushes

Welcome to Random Thursday!

I'm still in awe of how many of you wonderful ladies decided to join in on the RT fun last week. Thanks, you really should've seen the huge smile you put on my face. Hey, maybe we'll hit those numbers again this week & I'll take a photo of my smile for you. 

Win. Win.

Alright, now onto this weeks topic:

Oh the sweet hotties of the 90's...

There was a time back in the day, when I was wee little tween, that I fell head over fucking heels for these fellas. Poster on the wall, my name scribbled with their last name, their movies & shows being replayed over and over. Ha, what a dork.

So here they are, the young men that stole my little pre-teen heart.

Benny 'The Jet' Rodriguez (Mike Vitar) from The Sandlot. Not only was this movie hilarious, yes I still watch it & laugh, but I thought this little dude was the bee's knees. He was cool, could play baseball like a major league-er, and wore Chucks. Swoon. Maybe not so much anymore though :/

Pike (Luke Perry) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the movie. He may have been a dirty mechanic but homeboy could wear the shit out of leather jacket & ride a motorcycle like a champ. Could he kick vampire ass? Not so much, but he was still hot. I still laugh every time I hear Buffy say "Pike isn't a name, it's a fish."

Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) from Dawson's Creek. Not quiet the bad boy but not an angel either...just the perfect mix of both. I remember seeing him all hung up on annoying ass Joey & thinking, I'll love you...screw her! Gotta say, he's aged very well.

Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) from Saved By the Bell. He was so damn smooth, how could any girl resist him? Um, they couldn't. Not even the snob bitch from the beach club could resist him. *sigh* Oh how I dreamed of being Kelly Kapowski & having him pine over me like a fool. Not gonna lie, I totally cried when they broke up over stupid Jeff.
* * * *

Alright, I'll be the first to say some of these dude's didnt age so well but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have taken a run at them back in the day. Mmhmm.

Now it's your turn. Share who your First Celebrity Crushes were. Oh, it's embarrassing? Who cares! Believe me, it was easy admitting I used to ogle over Benny 'The Jet'. 

Next weeks topic: Blogger Pet Peeves...


  1. Oh, I'm your first link-up ... I was really excited by this post! Forgot completely about the Beverly Hills 90210 gang!

    Yep, Pacey is on my list fo sho!!

    Have a great Thursday!


  2. Haha, Luke Perry is on my list too!

  3. I agree with Benny, he was so cute! Joshua Jackson stole my heart in the Mighty Duck movies and the Skulls.

    Although, none of these compare to Zack Morris! I loved him!

  4. I TOTALLY forgot about my crazy 3 month rewind & repeat cycle I had going with 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' back in the day. Soon after I moved on to 'Don't Tell Mom the Baby-sitter's Dead'- classic.
    SUCH a great idea to include what they look like now pics, you're so clever.
    great link-up!

  5. COMPLETELY agree with you on Benny and Zack Morris! I always preferred him over Slater. But as embarrassing as it is, Jonathan Taylor Thomas was my very FIRST crush.

  6. Oh, Pacey. *sigh* JJ is still a dreamboat!

  7. I have 2 of these guys on mine too! lol What a fun Random Thursday post! :)

  8. Luke Perry won my pre teen heart as well, though that was back in the 90210 days, back then I was team Dylan:)

  9. Oh my God I love these! I was in love with Pacey.

  10. I have to admit, I have no idea who the first guy even is!!! Also I didn't watch Dawson's Creek, so I missed out on Pacey. I'm liking Joshua Jackson now, though - his character in Fringe is what did it.

    Really?? Zack? Oh dear.

  11. "annoying ass Joey" lol i didn't like her either

  12. I totally had a crush on Benny from the Sandlot. Even now I watch the movie and I get all giddy and smiley because I remember of how dreamy I thought he was. It is so funny seeing everyone's crushes specially from the younger generation. I laughed when i saw some Harry Potter crushes that was just too cute.

  13. I loved Zach Morris especially with his overly large back in the day cell phone!! Great topic for this weeks link up!!

  14. When I was a kid and started having those "feeeeeelings", we lived in SC (Atlanta Braves country), and I became obsessed with the Braves' catcher at the time, Javier Lopez. I would literally watch every game, and even check the paper (remember when the TV schedule was in the paper??) to see when the games were on TV so I could watch him. Now, do I actually hit enter and post this....

  15. Pretty sure I watched that Jeff episode of Saved By the Bell when I was 7. I CRIED. I felt like it was the worst thing that could ever possibly happen.
    And Joshua Jackson is more desirable now on Fringe than he was in his younger years.

  16. Luke Perry in 90210! I swooned over him ;-)

  17. joshua jackson was something!
    i was totally head-over-heels in love with him. i was completely obsessed with dawson's creek and all its characters, but this guy was the best part of it! who could ever choose dawson over pacey?? haha

    it must be (so)... liberating


I love comments!
