#10 Rodgers and Hammerstein's 1957 - Prince Christopher
LOOKS: 2. Though this picture might deceive you and make you think "gosh she's being harsh.." just watch the movie and see how forgettable this guy is.
PERSONALITY: 1. Ditto the last comment. Not much personality to speak of here.
LOYALTY: 5. All princes who portray the Rodgers and Hammerstein's prince are incredibly loyal to their Cinderellas and don't think twice about the fact that she's a commoner.
HUMOR: 1. Remember what I said about being boring? That means no humor either.
INTELLIGENCE: 3. Even though the guy is about as entertaining as watching paint dry, I won't try to assume anything negative about his intelligence. We aren't given any evidence that he's a dummy, so we'll say he's average.
Most Swoonworthy moment: love at first sight.
#9 Cinderella 1950 - Prince Charming
LOOKS: 3. As far as Disney animated characters go, this guy is cute enough but incredibly generic.
PERSONALITY: 1. Let's be honest. This guy is basically a glorified prop to the story.
LOYALTY: 5. We never see his reaction to finding out Cinderella is a servant... but we know he married the girl so he must not have had a problem with it.
HUMOR: 1. Well maybe he actually has a fantastic sense of humor... if so we never see it.
INTELLIGENCE: 3. Who knows if he even has NEED of intelligence... everyone else runs his life for him! He simply says he likes a girl and the whole kingdom goes out of their way to find her. So he's gotta be kinda smart at least right?
#8 Ever After - Prince Henry
LOOKS: 3. I've never really seen the appeal to him physically, then again maybe he just needs to smile more... and get better hair.
PERSONALITY: 2.5. He can be pretty arrogant and closed minded. But... he does have his moments.
LOYALTY: 2. He turns on Danielle PRETTY fast, and on top of it adds to her humiliation by telling her not to address him informally. Ouch.
HUMOR: 2. He enjoys Danielle's occasional quips, but in general it seems like he takes himself way too seriously.
INTELLIGENCE: 4. Well... he likes reading books. Doesn't that mean they're smart by fairy tale standards?
#7 Into the Woods - "Cinderella's Prince"
LOOKS: 5. Oh, baby. He might take the whole cake in this category. Too bad it's not the only one that matters...
PERSONALITY: 2. He sums himself up best when he tells Cinderella "I was raised to be charming, not sincere."
LOYALTY: 1. SPOILERS highlight to read: Welp you cheat on your wife you instantly tank this category and the last../end spoilers.
HUMOR: 3. Whether or not it's intentional on his part, this guy makes me laugh.
INTELLIGENCE: 4. In Cinderella's very own words "He's a very smart prince, he's a prince who prepares." He is one of the only Princes with a pretty good game plan, and he recognizes her immediately when he sees her.
Most Swoonworthy moment: I guess we've got to go with AGONY.
#6 A Cinderella Story - Austin Ames
PERSONALITY: 3. He's not just a dumb jock! He's got poetry in his soul! But...sometimes he seems like a dumb jock.
LOYALTY: 2.5. Note to Austin Ames: when finding out the identity of your Cinderella, a shake of the head followed by a face palm is NOT an appropriate reaction. Nor is avoidance. Kinda cowardly actually.
HUMOR: 2.5. Most of the time, he's too angsty to find anything funny...but he did laugh at Samantha joke about water not having calories, so he's not completely humorless.
INTELLIGENCE: 3. The boy dreams of Princeton, but can't tell who Samantha is with a simple mask on her face. But he does come up with decent methods to track her down.. and doesn't fall for imposters.
Most Swoonworthy moment:
#5 Faerie Tale Theatre - Prince Henry
PERSONALITY: 3. What I said about his looks applies totally here as well. Simultaneously a sweetie and a dork.
LOYALTY: 5. But you gotta hand it to the guy, he stays loyal to Cinderella even when he does see her covered in soot wearing her ridiculous hat.
HUMOR: 4. He's hilarious whether or not he tries to be.
INTELLIGENCE: 2. Not the brightest Prince of the lot when he had two chances to see her and still didn't ask her name. "What have you been calling her this whole time? Hey, you!?"
Most Swoonworthy moment: Not sure if he ever FULLY makes anyone swoon, but you can watch the whole movie on youtube!
#4 Rodger's & Hammerstein's '65 - Prince Christopher
LOOKS: 4.5 For his time period, he's a prime specimen. The ideal image for princeliness.
PERSONALITY: 1. I'll be honest... I can't believe the maths let him get this high! He's a total smarmy jerk to all the people he converses with at the ball. Total snob.
LOYALTY: 5. Like I said, those Rodgers and Hammerstein's princes are always true to their girls.
HUMOR: 4. He definitely likes cracking jokes, but as I mentioned in the personality section they're usually pretty mean spirited.
INTELLIGENCE: 3. Didn't recognize Cinderella at the ball, but at least knew her when he saw her at her house.
Most Swoonworthy moment: Hands down my favorite song.
#3 The Slipper and the Rose - Prince Edward
PERSONALITY: 4. He's a pleasant enough guy who cares about his servants love lives!
LOYALTY: 5. Almost the second he sees Cinderella at that ball he pretty much considered her his one true love and his ONLY acceptable companion. His heart was on lockdown at that point and nothing she did or said afterward could make him change his mind.
HUMOR: 2. He's too busy pondering his potential marriage to be cracking jokes.
INTELLIGENCE: 5. He knows who to trust and not to believe lies spun by people with ulterior motives.
Most Swoonworthy moment: Unfortunately I couldn't find a clip, but the moment he rides up to her where he discovers where she is and kisses the heck out of her.
#2 Rodgers & Hammerstein's 1997 - Prince Christopher
PERSONALITY: 5. He's just a kind, good guy.
LOYALTY: 5. Ditto what I said on every previous Rodgers & Hammerstein's entry.
HUMOR: 3. He could have topped this whole list if he himself didn't claim in the movie "I don't have much of a sense of humor." Bummer.
INTELLIGENCE: 3. He had a pretty lengthy conversation with her in the beginning of the movie, but must have gotten a case of amnesia when he met her at the ball.
Most Swoonworthy moment: Gotta be this song.
#1 2015 Cinderella - Prince Kit
PERSONALITY: 5. He's probably the most well rounded prince on this list and he gives off a really pleasant demeanor. And hey he's is easily talked into showing kindness toward animals.
LOYALTY: 5. He is absolutely loyal to Cinderella from meeting her as a servant, to being enchanted by her at the ball, to finally knowing her real identity.
HUMOR: 3. Not his strongest suit, but he does have the ability to laugh every now and then.
INTELLIGENCE: 5. This is the only prince I think who is never fooled by Cinderella, and he's pretty good at coming up with ways to get what he wants.
Most Swoonworthy moment: Since the movie isn't out, we'll just show this featurette on the Love story... but I like their moment in the secret garden.
