in seventh grade and thought, 'That's my lady.'"
THE FUNNY TV STAR
Get to know him: He plays Dr. Chris Turk on NBC's hit show Scrubs
I like the idea of a woman ... "giving me a pedicure. That sounds kinda romantic. Any woman who can put up with my feet—I love you."
People say that the sexiest thing about me is ... "my sense of humor."
My best feature is ... "my lips."
My best friend is ... "a girl named Babe. I have a Rottweiler. I've had her since she was born. She's the lady in my life."
My brother calls me ... "a sucker for love."
It's getting serious when ... "I can't stop thinking about her."
If I had just one word to describe myself, it would be ... "difficult."
THE GOOD SON

, which debuts this summer on the Food Network.
How dating is like cooking: "Separately the ingredients are wonderful, but mixed together it could be a disaster."

THE POETIC CSI
Get to know him: Watch CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Creative dating: "I like daytime activities. On one date we played tennis, then went to a museum. Another girl took me sea kayaking. It was amazing."
Inspiration: "Few people have the same social and ethical influence as Oprah
. I want a partner who has Oprah
Fave time killer: "You think you're going to outgrow video games, but I'm kind of a dork. I like to have a glass of wine and play Xbox. I hate to brag, but I'm pretty good."

He-man hobby: "I race cars—Formula Fords, a Mustang GT and Super Carts. I love it. It's technical, athletic and competitive."
Soft side: "I want kids. Two biological, three adopted. So many kids need homes. If you can provide a loving one, you should."
THE SOLO ARTIST

Tech savvy: "I can fix anybody's computer. I'm not a total tech guy, but I'm pretty good, I have to say."

Wooing ways: "If I wrote a song for a girl, I would only play it for her. I wouldn't want her to think it was part of my job."
His knowing nose: "It's wild, man, but I get an impression from perfume. If a girl wears vanilla, I think, 'Oh, she's sweet.' If it's patchouli, I think, 'That girl is smart.'"
Grooming secret: "Big Sexy Hair products. I get giant bottles because I don't like to shop a whole lot."
Ideal first date: "I'd rather do it in a group, believe it or not. That way the girl's not feeling like all the pressure is on her. She can laugh something off with her friends, and I can do the same."
THE SEXY EX

: "As a father and a gentleman, I feel that discussing our personal life is not something I want to do."

Golf is like dating because ... "dating, golf, life—it's all about commitment."
