It has always been a crushing disappointment to visit a hospital and not be treated by a doctor who looks like he should be a model and/or is Patrick Dempsey. Reality is the worst. But that aside, shows like Grey's Anatomy and The Night Shift make being a doctor look so cool that you might just forget that in order to be one you need to study forever.
Firemen risk their lives daily (at least according to Chicago Fire!) and this is probably why most people find the idea of the job sexy. And does anyone remember Vince from Friends? Phoebe's ex boyfriend?
Side note: So if you thought that you would call firemen to your house accidentally (on purpose) just so somebody like Severide would show up at your doorsteps... then you're wrong. Very, very wrong *dying a little inside*
3) Police detectives
Because of shows like Castle, Chicago P.D, Hawaii Five O and Brooklyn Nine Nine, all police detectives are imagined to be hot and dangerous. There are so many police procedural shows on television right now that we're spoiled for choice.
With shows like Better Call Saul and How To Get Away With Murder (HTGAWM), becoming a lawyer is suddenly the 'in' thing. HTGAWM has Viola Davis who makes arguing for criminals look so glamorous that you'd want to do it too. Become a lawyer, I mean, not the getting away with murder part… Just sayin'..
5) FBI agents
I've never encountered an FBI agent in my life, the only legit FBI agents I know come from either Quantico or Wayward Pines. If all FBI agents are like the one at Priyanka Chopra's academy then sign me up! Although, on second thoughts, it might involve physical activities like running and I don't think I'll ever be up for it.
6) Time Travellers
So we might have thought that time travelling was cool before we met the Doctor, but did we know that we could fly around in a spaceship that looks like a Police Telephone Box from the 50s and fight aliens that look like salt and pepper shakers?
7) Superheroes/ Vigilantes
Superheroes and vigilantes fall under the same category, because essentially they are super strong, super skilled and more often than not super rich too, although that doesn't have anything do with anything. How cool would it be to wear a uniform and run around saving people lives or even having superpowers! Imagine if you could fly? No more long security checks at the airports!!
Despite the fact that I can't tell a guitar from a piano, watching Empire makes me want to be a musician so bad. The entire Lyon family balls so hard, I mean they have gold everything! And Glee might have gone downhill after Rachel and Kurt graduated from McKinley but I've always wanted to do a Lady Gaga cover to express my inner most feelings in a peppy blazer.
9) Book editors
This one might be a little specific, but ever since Younger came on television, being a book editor or being in the book publishing business has suddenly become so cool. Or maybe it's just Hillary Duff. Also, Duncan, from Secret Diary of a Call Girl might be a cheating, slimy, sleaze ball, but the way he used to tell Belle what he wants from her book was just so hot, and he also makes the rumpled, slept in look, look so good.
10) Demon hunters
Who wouldn't want to be fighting vampires one day and then battling the demon himself at night? Also. free trips to hell and back. I see no wrong there.
