Symmetrical? You be the judge!

A bit of a debate has raged in the discussion of one of the spoiler clips for tonight's episode of "The Con-Man in the Meth Lab."

Who's face is more symmetrical? David Boreanaz or Brendan Fehr? We can debate all day the aesthetics because everyone's face has some degree of asymmetry, but who's is closest to even?

Louise decide that, debating aside, she would do an actual test.

She got this picture of Brendan Fehr from his official site:


And this picture of David Boreanaz from Beyond-Bickering.net and did two tests with each.

and then...

David Boreanaz, original:

So, what do you think? Whose face is more symmetrical? Big thanks to Louise for sending me this!

David Boreanaz, without a doubt!

I might just had the biggest histerical laugh of my life. I'm currently struggling with studying simetry applied to molecules for my physical chemistry test on friday, and then you post this!
I don't know which one of them is more simetrical, but I can tell you which of them is the most handsome even simtrical, and it is David Boreanaz, no doubt.

I just noticed that I actually replied with every word 'symmetry' spelled wrong.
I meant Symmetrical.

David Boreanaz - No Doubt - he looks like himself in both pictures.

Brendan on the otherhand looks freaky and about 3 different people - Mr. Potato Head or an Alien - You Decide!

Louise said...

Hee ... you see - science is fun!

It just goes to show, that although Brennan says Jared is more symmetrical, she's just projecting her feelings towards Booth :)

David Boreanaz If your face is symmetrical it looks the same or near as, no matter what how it is construed - David does appear to look very much the way we know and love him.

Brendan, geesh, he would scare small children, lol, he looks totally different each time, so his face has very much less symmentary.

Ga, DAVID is one HOT man!

David Boreanaz - hands down - such a hottie. That other guy is eeeek!

Lily said...

I agree with all of you. David is way more symmetrical than Brenden. Brenden is just ugly.


Go David!!

cordy said...

Oh my god. That's so funny. Now there can't be no doubt that we are defenitely a bunch of crazy chicks.

And yes, I have to agree with most of you. David seems to have the more symmetrical features. He looks almost the same in all 3 pictures. Brendan however looks kind of weird to me.

David of course is more handsome and hot, but that was beyond all question.

Thanks Louise for this little experiment.

Agree that DB is definitely more symmetrical!
and as a bio-nerd, I feel compelled to mention that the preference for symmetrical features is common across all animals. Even birds will prefer to mate with a more symmetrical bird over an asymmetrical one.

So there is a good reason for us to all have a crush on DB :)

L said...

lol well obviously David's! ^_^ Hilarious.

(Though I personally don't think the old symmetrical = beautiful argument is right.)

Hilarious and brilliant. That's totally made my night.

DB without a doubt is the most symmetrical. I thought it was 3 of the same picture at first glance.

Pure. Genius.

Awesome.

OK, the right side mirror of Brendan is seriously creeping me out.

Louise said...

The strange thing is, it's DB's one non-symmetrical feature (his half-smile) that seems to add to his attractiveness.

Two half-smiles (second pic) and he just looks goofy. No smile (third pic) and he looks too serious. Half-smile is just right.

Milky said...

This was GREAT!! Pure genius, Louise...

And no doubt, David is the more symmetrical!

Should we send this little experiment to HH and the Writer's Team? :p

And I have to say: this kind of freedom to be fans in any way we feel like being is one of the reasons I like OBW so much! Freedom's always nice...

Deepa Dev said...

cordy I think you meant there's no doubt we're all crazy 'hot scientist chicks' ;)

Shannon said...

David Boreanaz!!!

catnapping said...

It appears to me that Boreanaz' results show more symmetry...and considering that he's got 8 years on Fehr, that's saying a lot.

Asymmetry becomes more apparent as the body ages...

Milk Mama said...

None of the pictures are straight on, so it's hard to be accurate. Brendan's head is tilted to one side and David has a smirk on his face. But I'd definitely say David's is the most symmetrical.

But we could still brush off the line by saying that Brennan is talking about Bone structure or something...

Lauren said...

David Boreanaz, hands down. He definitely looks more like himself in both pictures.

Brendan looks like George Eads (from CSI) in the left-side mirror.

Poetic_line said...

I really don't care about symmetrical. David Boreanaz has my heart. And no one else.

heirofloki said...

We officially have too much time on our hands. lol

But yes, poor Brendan looks not-himself in those pics. I guess DB wins this one.

David Boreanaz so adorable, of course he has the most symmetrical face and he is so freaking hot. The other guy really is scary looking!

David Boreanaz - a gift to the world of male hottiness.

Mom2ABnTB said...

DB but it was too funny to look at those pics!

Shep said...

Haha! Great idea Louise!
Yep, David is way more symmetrical! Brendan has a wonky nose and looks weird in every picture. And David is HOT!!

Joy_Booth said...

I love science! It's so much fun in situations like this!

David Boreanaz, definitely! And he's totally the better looking too!^^

Shep said...

This clearly shows how crazily obsessed we are. I love OWB!
