Known by the moniker the boy with the bread, Peeta Mellark of The Hunger Games trilogy has become pretty iconic in the world of fictional guy crushes. Originally seen as a dark horse during the games, he was more brains than brawn in his approach to surviving the blood-thirsty trial. He tempered Katniss’s brash and rebellious attitude with his logical level-headedness that allowed for their rouse of a couple to fool the Capital and President Snow While she may have had to physically save him a few times, he saved her emotionally, and, throughout the trilogy, remains a constant source of hope, understanding and stability. Eventually, Peeta wins Katniss’ heart and finds a love that’s real.
