The first time I watched the first season I never gave Bret a second glance. He was just the guy hanging around with Jemaine to me. Bret didn't stand out or make any impression on me and it wasn't coz I was attracted to Jemaine coz I wasn't initially attracted to him but my eye always went right to Jemaine and I thought he was funnier too. I think it was only after I met Bret that I went - hold on - who's this
- and I started paying attention to him. ...
... The first time I saw episode #1, Jemaine really stood out to me and Bret did seem more like the guy who hung out w/ Jemaine. That changed for me as the season went on though. I also wasn't attracted to either of them until I saw the Girlfriends episode and was like, "hang on.. Bret.. I think love you!" I've been completely smitten with him ever since.
It never even occurred to me that Jem might be popular with women ... I see Jemaine the same way I see Rhys, more or less. However, Bret's looks struck me immediately (understatement of the year). He's exactly the type I'm into: dark hair, skinny, doe-eyes, high cheekbones, pouty.
Excluding looks, I didn't have a notable preference for one over the other until I saw them live. Bret's silly, surreal humor and beautiful voice stole my heart. I think Jem is great--especially with voices--but Bret's the one for me.
