    I would suggest, if there are one hundred Bond girls, that there are five revealed each day. I would also prefer just a singular overall character ranking as opposed to two, unless we're also going to rank the villains based on looks and attire also. :)

    Would it be more feasible if we were to rank only the main Bond girls in one ranking alone, combining all these aspects together?

    Definitely less complicated of course, and I could keep my rating system from the film ranking game.

    The simpler, the better. And I do know that I will have better things to do than make 2 lists of 50 girls. Ranking 25 is hard enough and it should be clear what the criteria are.

    I like the idea of ranking only the main Bond girls now. We could always do the other ones later...or maybe all the sacrificial lambs (male and female), etc.

    All right, let's consider this then:

    1st place (favourite Bond girl) = 10 pts
    2nd place = 9 pts
    3rd place = 9 pts
    4th place = 8 pts
    5th place = 8 pts
    6th place = 7 pts
    7th place = 7 pts
    8th place = 7 pts
    9th place = 7 pts
    10th place = 7 pts
    11th place = 6 pts
    12th place = 6 pts
    13th place = 5 pts
    14th place = 5 pts
    15th place = 5 pts
    16th place = 4 pts
    17th place = 4 pts
    18th place = 4 pts
    19th place = 3 pts
    20th place = 3 pts
    21st place = 2 pts
    22nd place = 2 pts
    23rd place = 2 pts
    24th place = 2 pts
    25th place = 2 pts
    26th place = 1 pt (least favourite Bond girl)

    I'm in. I know you're gauging interest right now but do let us know when you'd like these rankings by, just in case I don't get mine in until the last second again.

    Great stuff. So far I've received 5 rankings. Feel free to send me more ;)

    I want to give you all time enough to consider your rankings. Saturday at midnight looks like a good deadline to me. So still plenty of time for enyone who's interested :)

    That's kinda harder than just ranking the films. I feel there's a lot of great ones, a fair few who are really not great, and not many just average ones. Hard to parse within the tiers...

    I definitely find that there's five or six that I really love, five or six that I really don't, and everyone else in between is sort of interchangeable and very hard to place.

    Edit: I should add that this is a good thing as it will make me think on aspects I may not have given their due before!

    I’ll be sending my ranking to you later @GoldenGun when I’ve finished work.
    Another great idea, which I’m glad to see has plenty of interest. :-bd

    List sent! I used the following criteria:
    1. Would I go gay for them?
    2. Would I like to BE them?
    3. Would I like to hang out with them?

    Yeah, varying criteria might mean some wildly different lists on this one. I leaned heavily into strength of character and effect on the plot. Then performance of the actress. But then something like Solitare's costumes ended up making an impression too.

    Class 1 has only one member, but I won't give away my choices just yet ;)

    I realised that I never ranked the Bondgirls before. Very difficult to do.

    I tend to shy away from these, especially with the dual categorizations/criteria. Of course I dig all of the '60s Bond Girls, I also tend to like the ditzy chicks (Tiffany, Goodnight), not a fan of super tough, super competent Bond Girls.

    We decided to go with a single ranking instead of the dual categorisations/criteria. We've also decided to only consider the main Bond girls.

    As you seem to appreciate some underdog choices like Tiffany or Goodnight, I'm sure their overall rankings would improve if you decide to submit yours ;)

    Just before the release of Skyfall, I did a “Top 10 Bond Girl” ranking or a couple of my friends and co-workers. In reexamining that list today, 8 of my rankings still apply, so I’m going to go with that.

    As for the bottom seven (20-26) …again not much of a debate for me. It is the middle 11-19, that’s tough. How do you separate the role (“as scripted”) from the actress? Or from the actress’s appearance from their performance? I might as well use a random number generator to do those picks!

    The ranking of the top three was not hard for me. After them, the drop-off is steep.
