Seductress Pick: Evangeline Lilly

Before the TV fatwa that was 'Lost' (2004-2010), Angie was just a small town girl from Canada trying to pay her student loans. Now she will forever be that one hot chick we all want to get stuck on a desert island with. Better known by her nickname coined by Sawyer (Josh Holloway), 'Freckles', her character Kate is almost a little too good to be true. Yes, she's a murderer but who cares. When you're put in a cast with the likes of Maggie Grace, Emilie de Ravin, and Elizabeth Mitchell, it's pretty hard to stand out. And even though we all wanted to hate her, we couldn't help but admit that she was pretty much the best thing to happen to television since 'Dynasty' (1980). We all remember that part in the pilot when she's washing her clothes in the ocean, pondering the absurdity of the plane crash, looking very upset, all of which doesn't matter because she's half naked in a pair of lacy black panties and a wet t-shirt. It's no surprise that the constant love triangle between her, Jack (Matthew Fox) and Sawyer becomes one of the central arcs of 'Lost'. Remember, this is a show about smoke monsters, 70's hatches, and time travel. But let's face it, we all secretly tuned in to see what was going with Kate and Jack, or you know, Kate and Sawyer. I was always voting for the latter for some reason. It's probably because there was that amazing sex scene the two of them shared while he was in a cage covered in dirt and she climbed into it so they could make out. Don't act like you don't remember, we all TIVO'ed it.
And yes, in real life she did end up with the hobbit from the show. And i'm sure he's thanking his lucky stars every single night that he gets to bed pretty much the most beautiful woman in television. So Angie, we salute you, and we are also majorly jealous of you, your freckles, your guns, and how in the hell you have such perfect and shiny hair when your stuck on a god damn tropical island.
