[dropcap]O[/dropcap]nce upon a time, being called a geek was the kiss of death. You’d do anything to avoid being branded as one. It was a stigma much, much worse than the Scarlet Letter.

A lot has changed, though, because in the age of the Internet, geek is the new chic. What was once a derogatory insult is now a flattering compliment. Nowadays, instead of vehemently denying being a geek, you actually have to prove how much of a geek you are with your geek cred.

The geeks have inherited the earth. They no longer carry the stigma of being unattractive, socially awkward trolls. They are quite hot and sexy—as proven by the list below.

10. Jessica Chobot

Chobot burst into the geek scene when a photo of her licking a Sony PSP appeared online. She proved that she wasn’t just the flavor of the month and was hired by IGN, where she contributes columns, features, reviews, and hosts their Weekly Show as well. She is also one of the voice actors for Bioware’s star studded Mass Effect 3.

9. Rosario Dawson

Rosario is known mainly for her roles in geek movies such as Men in Black 2, Sin City, Clerks 2, and Tarantino’s Death Proof. She is an avid comic reader and actually created a comic book series of her own titled Occult Crimes Taskforce, where she loaned her likeness. Oh, and she speaks Klingon. qamuSHa’!

8. Adrianne Curry

Curry is well-known for bagging the top prize in the first America’s Next Top Model and gracing the cover of Playboy magazine twice. While she is not strutting down the runway, she is actively playing World of Warcraft, where she heads her own guild. She is also currently dating a member of that WoW guild. Yes, you read that right. One lucky guy is living the dream of dating a hot girl he met from an online game.

7. Rashida Jones

You might know Rashida Jones from her roles in The Office and Parks and Recreation. She also starred in geek-worthy films like I Love You, Man, The Social Network, and even The Muppets. What’s geekiest about her is that she actually writes her own comic book. Dubbed Frenemy of the State, her comic is about a socialite who’s an undercover CIA agent. Now that’s quite a story.

6. Natalie Portman

While it is pretty much common knowledge that she went to Harvard, Natalie Portman’s academic discipline and excellence is something to marvel. She actually skipped the premier of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in order to study for her high school exams. In hindsight, anyone in their right mind would rather take a high school test rather that watch that drivel, but my point still stands.

5. Kari Byron

Admit it. She’s one of the primary reasons why you watch Mythbusters. An interesting fact about her employment is that she persistently showed up at M5 Industries, were Mythbusters is shot, until she got the job. She doesn’t have a science background, though. Instead, she has a degree in film and sculpture from San Francisco State University, where she graduated magna cum laude.

4. Tina Fey

Who doesn’t love Tina Fey? She had a long run as the head writer of Saturday Night Live and turned the tables on herself by creating a sitcom about a head writer of a sketch comedy show in 30 Rock. This super geek is undoubtedly a genius both behind and in front of the camera.

3. Alodia Gosiengfiao

For quite a while now, Alodia’s name has been synonymous with the country’s cosplay scene. She is one of the most influential players in making cosplay more mainstream and accessible. Through her various cosplay gigs, she has slowly but surely enchanted the public, landing her a place in FHM Philippines’ 100 Sexiest Women in the World, not to mention a cover story.

2. Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn’s claim to fame was co-hosting G4TV’s Attack of the Show, where she discussed and reviewed gadgets, video games, movies, and pop culture in general. Almost overnight, she became a geek icon. She has since made cameos in notable films such as Iron Man 2, Date Night, and Magic Mike. To further cement her place in the pages of geek history, she released her own book back in 2010 titled Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek.

1. Felicia Day

Starring in the cult favorite show Buffy the Vampire Slayer should be enough geek cred for anyone, but that isn’t enough for Felicia Day. Fueled by her experiences in being addicted to the World of Warcraft and online gaming, she writes, directs, produces, and stars in the web series The Guild, which has garnered millions of viewers.
