Chris or Liam? Which Hemsworth is hotter?

IT'S a question that many (women at least) on the Northern Rivers have grappled with since news first emerged in 2013.

Yes, I remember it well. A sunny day in September when we learnt a Hemsworth would be living among us, here on the Northern Rivers.

But is he the hottest Hemsworth?

Therein lies the question.

To help you answer it we've put together a list of pros and cons of being on Team Chris or Team Liam (Hemsworth, that is).

Team Chris

Out of the two, Chris definitely has the more impressive, ah, weapon. I mean, have you seen him swing that thing? Not only does the hammer of Thor, Mjolnir, summon great waves of thunder, but legend goes it has the power to destroy entire mountains. Meanwhile, younger bro Liam, is hitting targets with a simple bow and arrow, later swapped for some kind of military assault rifle, in The Hunger Games trilogy.

Team Liam

This one was a tough one. God knows I'm a sucker for a man in uniform and these two both suit up pretty well. But after a good while pooling over images under the google search title 'Hemsworth uniform' - which I'd highly recommend - I came to the conclusion that in fact, Liam is the winner in this category. I know Chris has his whole Thor suit of armour complete with red cape, but there's something about Liam in dark, fitted combat gear and green flight suit (Independence Day: Resurgence) that has me week at the knees.

Team Chris

Parental reactions to a potential partner should always be a consideration. I mean, sure, in my case, my parents would probably be happy if aforementioned partner didn't have a criminal record and smell like booze, but in the race to impress the oldies, I think Chris would have this one in the bag. He seems to be the well-behaved family man who would impress the folks with his polite words, impeccable manners and charm. Liam, on the other hand, with his personal life constantly splashed on the front page, seems like more of a wild card in this category.

Team Liam

You'd have to be blind and living under a rock (on another plant) not to know that both Hemsworths are incredibly good looking. Both incredibly tall, with abs of steel, shoulders for days and the classic Aussie surfer tan. Chris has what I'd call Golden Boy look, all blonde hair and blue eyes. Liam, on the other hand, is a little more dark and brooding, with those intense green eyes. It's a tough choice, and has been the cornerstone of many a pub debate, but I'm going to have to pick Team Liam for the looks department.

Team Chris

He is literally a God. And by literally, I mean literally plays the character or of a God (Thor) in the incredibly successfully Thor and Avengers films, part of the Marvel Comic franchise. I can't remember any film Liam played a God.
