If you’re one of those people who is skeptical of vampires and werewolves and mystical creatures, you might be all, “Eww, no thanks,” when it comes to the TV show True Blood. BUT HERE’S THE THING: It’s not about that. It’s not about plot or story lines or fantastical beings, it’s about hot (and often shirtless) dudes. THAT’S IT. Yeah, the show is kind of interesting. Yeah, I may have watched every episode of every season up until this past Sunday. But it’s about the GUYS. THE MEN. THE HOT, SHAPE-SHIFTING, BLOOD-SUCKING MEN. (Who all happen to be smitten over ONE particular lady named Sookie aka Anna Paquin. Lucky GIRL.) So you can image my pure delight when I saw this week’s TV Guide cover with all three of my favorite True Blood dudes on it: Alexander Skarsgård, Joe Manganiello, and Stephen Moyer. Meeeeeoowwww. (Or should I say RAWWRR because one of them is a werewolf? Yes.)

Throughout the entirety of the show, all three boys are clad in skintight tees, pec-baring unbuttoned thermals, or bicep-hugging button-up shirts. And although their clothes look like they were shrunk in the dryer, we are SOSOSO not mad. “Best Hair” award goes to Mr. Skarsgård though, because he perfects the nongreasy slicked-back hair look on both this cover AND on the show. “Best Smizing” goes to Stephen, OBVI. LOOK AT HIM. He’s basically glamoring us all from this photo (TRUE BLOOD JOKE!). He’s a model vampire in the making. But, without fail, “Best Body” goes to none other than Joe Manganiello. Let me just put it this way—when he appeared onscreen in this week’s episode (BEST ONE YET BY FAR) I blurted “GOD, HE’S SO HOT,” whilst I was surrounded by my dad and two other brothers, and their silence made it HELLA awkward. But I CANT. HELP. IT. He’s RIDICULOUS looking. Also, in this TV Guide interview he admits to working out twice a day six times a week (!!!!), which is why he looks so incredibly ripped. So basically, every time I’m snackin’ on some Baked Doritos and Diet Coke, Joe is sweating, grunting, and heavily breathing his way to a buffer body. Gulp.
