Coming in at number 8 is Mr Brown. I’ll find out how he feels about this and let you all know later.

Career: English Psychological Illusionist and Mentalist

Claim to Atheism: Professed to being an atheist in his book Tricks of the Mind and described Bertrand Russell’s collection of essays Why I Am Not a Christian “an absolute joy.”

Top 11 by Atheist Mind

Number *eight*? No, I don’t think so. Mr Brown soooo deserves the top spot! 😀 xxx

I meant to tell Derren and Coops this when I met them but forgot as it was too awesome a time to remember anything. But it was one story I made a point of remembering and wanting to tell.
When I won the tickets to the show and was feverishly telling everyone and thier dog I was off to see Derren Brown live, I was often met with the same comment over and over again: ‘watch out Az, he will mess with your mind’ or ‘ooohhh, do you think he will do something to you? be careful now’ and so on.
These comments were unfailing in thier sameness and totally constant untill I told my Irish friend that I was to catch Derrens show. His reply was:

‘ohhh be careful man- he used to be a christian you know’

I did burst out laughing when I found it, he should clearly be number 1!!
I’m hoping it’s a misprint 🙂 x

flapjack says:

Only number 8? This is a travesty on the same scale as Father Ted being declared the second best priest by Mrs Doyle! I demand a recount…
Keanu may have the looks, but he has all the personality of a plank of wood. Derren tops my list any day. He’s sex on a stick 😉

Come on!
Derren is better looking than Trent Reznor! :O
lol 😀

Bren says:

Hugh Laurie, maybe. Otherwise I say Derren should top that list.

July 18, 2009 at 2:49 pm
Allie says:

Haha! Love it. xD

How did Trent Reznor get number 1? Strange.

July 18, 2009 at 2:58 pm
Kim says:

I wonder who made that list up. They need glasses. Derren should clearly be No. 1!! Robbed!

Trent Reznor? Ew! Derren’s way cuter! I do love me some Bruce, though…..

Number 8? You’ve got to be kidding me!!! Who comes up with this stuff?

kat says:

i had a careful look at all the pictures and there are a couple who could compete in terms of appearance,but if we take into account personality,Derren has to win the top spot,for sure.

July 18, 2009 at 3:47 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

Alright. Be honest, now. Which of you guys invaded their comments to tell them he should be number one? You’re never going to beat the legion of Trent Reznor fans, but good luck to you anyway.

we demand a recount!

hmm… polls are fun
i wonder where derren would come on a poll of “people most likely to be satan”

Heh, sandwiched between Cillian Murphy and Bruce Willis. Not bad

Nopke says:

Oh yes, another new career for our stud Brown … ehem …

Top 11???? Why 11??? Who ever picks 11 as a top? Does it say something about this collection of superb sexy male specimen?

The non believers believe at least in something … that what they see … and sense (weird enough ..) but whether it is realistic …. hm … The mind at times conflicts with the body when it comes to finding someone sexy …. that’s my experience. What is sexy? In my world that is a non standard thing for sure .. and can change on a daily bases .. depending yóu’re in at and how open you are to sexyness ..

Is being sexy something that turns other people on … is being sexy something that tickles someone’s mind … I personally find someone the least sexy when he is not in my bed … ehehehe …. or around … Till then .. sexy is not in my focus (anymore). Although .. I vaguely remember at times … like .. hey .. that feeling … what was it again?

Oh well .. some become more and more sexy to the people with ageing ….. but do they feel sexy theirselves …

Too bad it is a thing only to be enjoyed by probably one …. What’s the use of sexy otherwise I’d say .. If you may not have a bite in it …

I myself had the pleasure of having been with someone who could have been DB’s not identical twin … in a way … I always found that type of men .. not really my thing, due to a lack of sexual attraction both ways. But in a way they did appeal to my mind, which can feel kinda sexy. It feels kinda surreal. This lack of body cells I all of a sudden get to feel.
Oh, no, he was not gay … at least, not back then. Maybe after me … (done with female for the rest of their lifes … just kidding ..), and maybe not.

Now then … next top among magicians??? Mentalists? Gay performers?
Ofcourse, it is not nice .. those tops …. as it is when people on diet get to see all this nice food and such they may not have …

*hand up in the air … asking for permission to speak* …. I KNOW WHY, I KNOW WHY!!!!!!

July 18, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Lmao! I love these polls! Hmmm well Derren gets the top spot in most things with me so definately should be Numero Uno! He is just the perfect package of a man, amazingly intelligent, funny in a gentle witty way, charismatic, talented the list goes on and on lol! Not forgetting the gorgeousness to of course ;-)! I think he’s the bees knees lol, would be such a privaledge to be a friend and love him to bits! You sir are class, nuff said :-D!

July 18, 2009 at 4:41 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

mturf: I tried to find the answer to that, and it’s “quite high,” according to these guys:

Kimberly Brown says:

this is outrageous!!!!! don’t get me wrong… i like a bit of tool and nin – but musically! lol and keanu is always pretty to look at! but surely derren and hugh should share the top spot!!! come on! they have it all!!!!!!!

July 18, 2009 at 5:29 pm
roz says:

why is this a list of just atheist GUYS? so i guess ann rice doesnt qualify anymore:

July 18, 2009 at 6:08 pm
lauralou says:

I think that Mr Brown should share the top spot with Mr Laurie. Only then will I be happy!

July 18, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Derren should definetly be number one, no one else even comes close!

I’m sure that website needs updating, am i correct? 🙂

fayella says:

For all the Derren-girls out there, I suggest a quick visit to Wetherspoons in Shepherds Bush. Think Derren ten years ago without the fluffy hairdo.

As for listing Derren at 8 in the countdown, its a travesty, how could they do this to him, blah de blah de blah. Look the thing is all they ever do is fling a load of names into a hat and how they come out, thats the order. Try not to get too distressed, shove trick of the mind into the dvd player and play “spot the bald spot”, it calms me every time. But then I am a bit odd!

July 18, 2009 at 7:16 pm
jameshogg says:

Plenty of Derren fangirls (and some fanboys) would much prefer him higher up the list lol.

July 18, 2009 at 8:44 pm
Ms G says:

Roz: the feminine list is there as well, in case you are interested.

Now, I wanted to add .. that I did not find them particularly sexy, those men, but that’s probably me. Let alone DB ofcourse (major sucking up here ..). Especially number one … never have seen the guy so that may be reason that I can not see it. When they come alive it may come clear, although .. I doubt it from what I’ve seen on that face.
Sexy is probably not those pictures … it’s the guys in all states people have seen them sofar that apparently did make other people find them sexy. Sexy is so much about other stuff .. voice, intonation, a touch, eye contact, way of saying something. It’s in the small things, quite often non verbal although not always. And looks count too, but it’s the face alive for sure, and the person inside that makes it sexy by pouring himself out there in his own special sexy way in that moment. And it is so personal … emotions (triggered by whatever substance/thoughts/.words/environment) and the mind … those two combined can create someone’s sexy personality all by itself … in some cases someone else does not even need to work it anymore. People can be worked to see someone as a sexy person, if in the right mood. Still will not mean that that person wil hop into bed with the other all the time.

You do have a problem if you only get in the mood if you are in bed though …. LOL …. as certain circumstances which stimulate those things will less occur with ageing. And most will not go out only for that reason anymore (or never will).

So sex symbol no 1 on my list is…. Mr T Braun! Sorry, Derren .. you just live too far away … (nah, the gay thing was not really a problem ofcourse …. we can overcome that … ehehehe).

Now I will stop focussing on this sexy top list, as what if I turn my self on?! Poor Mr T Braun …..

July 18, 2009 at 8:59 pm

Yay, go Derren! 🙂

I want to be a fangirl. Do we get a badge and a membership card?

July 18, 2009 at 9:33 pm
Berber Anna says:

I’m going against the flow here (please to refrain from stoning me, angry mob 😛 ), but frankly, I don’t see why everybody thinks Derren’s so sexy. Handsome? Sure. Nice? Very much so. Admirable magician? More like one of the awesomest magic performers I know [/fangirl]. But the ‘sexy’ part is just not clicking with me. Ah well, I suppose it sort of depends on what ‘your type’ is… 😉

SGC: Wow, loved that link… I was literally laughing out loud. Yes, obviously Derren would never be able to do what he does without using demonic forces to aid him! *grins* I like these people. They’re funny.

July 18, 2009 at 9:46 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

Berber Anna: I think it’s a pardoy site, but it’s pretty funny. It took me a while to figure it out, I have to admit.

July 18, 2009 at 9:47 pm

Maybe we should start a fangirl club SarahJ 🙂

July 18, 2009 at 10:20 pm
sue says:

Fangirl badge and membership card? *lol*

Nope, you get a restraining order and added to “The List”. >:oP


July 18, 2009 at 10:51 pm
SarahJ says:

ScreamingGreenConure what do you mean parody? I thought DB relaxes of a weekend by roasting naughty people on a spit whilst dressed in a natty red suit. I could also mention something about sacrificing black cocks but I won’t go there 😉

Sarah, we’ll definitely need t-shirts and scarves too. I’m practicing screaming and fainting for the very next time DB is in town.

July 18, 2009 at 11:23 pm




How dare they say no 8.

Derren, you truly the Master of Sex on Legs!

In the words of Hot Chocolate…. ‘YOU SEXY THING!’ 😉

July 18, 2009 at 11:46 pm
Sarah says:

SarahJ – definetly, and don’t for get to start work on a ‘We Love Derren’ banner too, complete with glitter and love hearts!

July 19, 2009 at 12:34 am
ScreamingGreenConure says:

I love you guys so much. This discussion thread is making me literally lol. LITERALLY. The fangirl club needs to take care, though. This one time I tried to be a rabid Criss Angel fan and I ended up with sore knuckles after jumping down the stairs. This sort of thing can be dangerous, I haven’t tried being in a fandom since, and I still wake up screaming at night.

July 19, 2009 at 1:35 am
Julie says:

I have glitter pens SarahJ and Sarah ;-D x

Not loving the list in general. Derren should clearly be on there and maybe Brucie in his Die Hard 1 sweaty vest but the rest of them aren’t sexy. Pretty to look at maybe but sexy? Nah.

OMG! i want to be a member of this fangirl club!
i would wear a bade with pride!
i sense a facebook group coming along… lol!

Sarah says:

Oooohhhhh shall we? We have four members already! Any one know how to set one up? Get those glitter pens ready, ha ha!!

July 19, 2009 at 4:05 pm
IMYture says:

im so going to find out!
i’ll post another comment when its set up 😛

July 19, 2009 at 4:14 pm
SarahJ says:

Glitter pens? Now you’re talking. I think Rabid Fangirls would be an excellent name too. Mind you, in order that we don’t discriminate we should allow male members although they will obliged to wear pink. I’m sure there is some innuendo in there somewhere 😉

July 19, 2009 at 4:15 pm

go search it on facebook
go now!
go go go!! lol

I am still gutted he’s gay, even though there is obviously no chance,or real want, of a relationship anyway! He’s such a wonderful specimen of a human being! I hope aliens who find our planet when we’re all wiped out find only his DVDs. They’d have fun working that one out!

Today Facebook, tomorrow the WORLD MWAH HA HA HA….

Actually I think that we’re thinking too small. Sisters (and brothers) I have seen the light – what about The Church of the Rabid Fangirls? We need a church leader – fancy the job Phillis? Just think of the outfits! We could all wear ceremonial goatees for the services which would be held in theatres across the land where He has been.

Right, on with the commandments.

Commandment 1: thou shalt not use flash photography

July 19, 2009 at 5:32 pm
IMYture says:

this is brilliant

oh, how has one simple post about derren being a sexy atheist has turned into world domination?
i love the ceremonial goatees idea
totally excellent

slightly worried about travel costs to theatres… 😛
im sure home worship is permitted ahaha

first i think we need a way of getting more members though
i might post a link from all the other fan sites that are out there lol
soon we shall have legions of fans wearing ceremonial goatees! :O lols!!!
love ittt

July 19, 2009 at 5:48 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

I lolled so hard when I read the updates on this that my birds took off and flapped around the room in terror. I feel like I need to set up some kind of opposing group so we can have gang wars.

Yay – I’ve joined!

July 19, 2009 at 7:17 pm
Mill says:

IMYture said “…slightly worried about travel costs to theatres…”
There’s no problem there – we would just finance our activity whit blank money and dograces! I’m sure Derren is happy to help a bit whit that. Just that we can get started!

I’m joined 🙂

Crikey what have I started, one small comment about “Derren – girls” and now there are badges and groups. Sorry sorry sorry, I am going to hide now. Sorry again 🙂

July 19, 2009 at 8:47 pm
SarahJ says:

Faye, resistance is futile. You will join the collective.

ScreamingGreenConure, gang warfare eh? Am I going to have to start wearing low slung tracky bottoms and lots of bling and start calling people “beatch”?

July 19, 2009 at 9:34 pm
ScreamingGreenConure says:

Maybe you are, if I can settle on a suitable opposing group.

July 19, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Out of them, Derren Brown is THE sexiest in my opinion.

July 20, 2009 at 3:04 am
Julie says:

🙁 I’m not on facebook. It scares me. I’ll be an invisible member. Can we have t-shirts printed with ‘Derren Broke my Gaydar’ printed on them? In pink obviously with sparkley letters 😀

*Crosses fingers that that isn’t offensive in some way..*


July 20, 2009 at 3:11 am
Julie says:

Oh and for those who are puzzling over what defines sexy. I think it’s the eyes of the person. Not their shape or colour (though I am partial to a green pair 🙂 ) but the expression. Most people who others say are sexy have a glint in their eyes or have nice smiley ones or have that slightly naughty look 😉 . Dull eyes with no expression can make the most physically perfect person into the most unsexy one.


July 20, 2009 at 7:16 am
Sarah says:

Oooohhhhh Derren has the nicest eyes . . . . and really, really soft hands . . . . ahhh he’s just lovely!

July 20, 2009 at 7:54 am
IMYture says:

im loving the blank money idea
and who needs to scam people at the god races when we can just scam the ticket guys on trains? 😛
“have you got a ticket, miss?”
“Yeah, sure, it’s right in your hand”

:O ScreamingGreenConure – why would you want to set up an opposing group? :O just join us 😛 you know you want to

anyhow, i’ll be ordering the shipment of ceremonial goatees any day now ahaha
i’ll get them the same time i buy the glitter pens 😛

oh, this is just too funny for words 😀

July 20, 2009 at 7:55 am
IMYture says:

oh, and Julie – get facebook!
if not to keep in contact with friends but just to be a member of the group lol!

July 20, 2009 at 10:55 am
ScreamingGreenConure says:

IMYture: it’s not proper fun until someone makes an opposing group and causes a war. I just can’t think of a good enough one that isn’t too wordy – my first choice was “Criss Angel Could Beat Derren Brown in a Fight” and that’s WAY too long. On the other hand, I mgiht manage to recruit actual fans if I do that one.

Hmm, I’ll think about it. It’s tempting…

well i know so many people have already said, but i think i have to say it too, DERREN BROWN SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE ON THAT LIST!!!!
how does anyone not find him sexy? regardless of gender, all in all, no doubt about it, he is a sexy man. everything about him just makes you wish you could snog his face off….ahem….annnyway yeh well that list must be wrong theres no way he’d be 8th…
annnnnnnnd sexy is sexy, i suppose it depends on the person and what attracts them, but you know what i think…not just handsome and nice and an amazing magician, he is SEXYFULL!!!
i think you get my point
