Dave Brat, the Virginia college professor who shockingly beat House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican congressional primary, is a pretty solid teacher by most accounts.

According to comments left by former students on RateMyProfessors.com, he’s extremely helpful and conveys his ideas clearly, even if he’s not the easiest grader. Some more critical Randolph-Macon College students said he often strayed from the syllabus, but there’s one thing they seem to agree on: he’s really good-looking.

“He’s total eye candy!!” reads one review.

“At least he’s hot!!” goes another.

“Brat changes assignments all the time, but he is so charming, you forget to be mad at him,” says one more.

At press time, his hotness rating was a glowing red chili pepper, which is the site’s second best hotness rating after the combusting chili pepper.

Brat’s win is said to be a major victory for the tea party movement in the state. At the very least, it is a major victory for beautiful people everywhere.
