Question Who was the hottest potential?

I used to prefer Kennedy, but after re-watching S7 again I think Molly is the hottest with Eve a close second. There's also a hot blonde non-speaking extra you sometimes see in the background, but I guess extras don't really count here.

I wanted to slap Kennedy's face even on the first viewing before I got to hate this season. I guess she's okay looking, though.

None are particularly hot to me, but I did like the striped shirt one of them wore (and some kind of beret with it?).

She must be Violet. 🧡 I really liked her too (I blame Felicia Day for that lol)

I don't really find any of them appealing in that sense, they're mostly vulnerable, scared and (I presume) underage. I will say that Rachel Bilson- 'Colleen from Xander's dream- is quite pretty.

I'm all for a bit of shallow objectification, but really the character has to layered to hold my interest. So Slayers over potentials every time.

Kennedy is the prettiest to be honest it’s really interesting that her pretty privilege never kicks in within the fandom 😂

While I know it's the opposite for many, how I feel about someone is going to determine how "hot" they are rather than how attractive they are determining how I feel about them and their actions. Still, it's not as simple as that, and I'm not blind.

Actress? The one who plays Kennedy. Character? Vi, played by Felicia Day. Kennedy's personality doesn't make her very attractive, let's be honest.

They never give us character ages, but with the exception of Clara Bryant (Molly) all the actresses were over 18 (Clara turned 18 that Feb). Iyari Limon (Kennedy) was 26-27.

Lalaine (Chloe) was 15. She had just finished filming Lizzie McGuire.

@Kendar I think she was in Showtime, but not Potential? I always found it odd because the Potentials would be in some episodes and not others. I think Molly was gone from multiple episodes--7x13, 7x14, 7x16, 7x17. It can get confusing to keep track of them all.

Also I never understood why Giles said "there's only a handful left" in 7x10.. and then they have like 30-40 by "Chosen," and after Chosen there's hundreds...

Ahh. She didn't pull up on IMDB in the episode Potential, which is where I went for the main ones.

I remember reading somewhere that the girl's playing the Potentials (apart from the speaking roles) were taken from a local acting school & it was whoever was available at the time. That's why it was a load of different faces each time you saw them.

Whilst that's good to know I would say that, with the exception of Kennedy, I think all the Potentials are played young, probably younger than the actresses portraying them.

And, as I said, all too 'damsel-y' to hold any interest.

Truly high stakes intellectual conversation here! In truth though, my vote would be Kennedy, none of the potentials really stood out compared to the regular school extras or the main or supporting casts. I mean, this is a series where the least attractive girl is Willow. That's the floor.... At some point it's like asking whom the hottest girl on Cycle 3 of America's Next Top Model (Ann) or Persona 5 (also, Ann) or Parks & Rec is (It's Ann, the answer is always Ann) There's really no wrong answer.

I agree with you . Kennedy did look good but that was because they made her look nice when she was around Willow .
Would have liked to have them spent that time making Vi look that good since she had a better character .

As a person, I found Molly was the most interesting, but then, considering what they were to do why even ask that question. Unless of course, you are best friends with the First?

Don't think of it as judging actresses for being hot, think of it more, how well the casting director understood Joss Whedon's fascination for shoeless ballerinas.
