Now that Pope Benedict XVI has officially resigned -- a bunch of candidates from all over the world have emerged as possible favorites to replace him.

While the real papal conclave -- where Cardinals elect the new Pontiff -- is totally anonymous ... we've chosen a few Pope-fuls for YOUR careful consideration.

There are roughly a dozen more Cardinals who are considered to have a good shot at being elected Pope, but we narrowed it down to the 8 handsomest.

It's just like the real thing ... with less smoke.

The question is ...

It doesn't matter to me who the next pope is other than what name he chooses If he chooses Peter, then we all better start getting ready for some real hard times.

"a bunch of candidates" - guessing the writer's age is around 8! I'd rather someone who can write! I think all your "who would you rather's?" are awful, but this one is in really poor taste

I get its so cool to hate God, especially Catholics, for all the problems with the church and their priests. Especially since they claim to represent "wholesome" family values and are anti-gay. But a who you'd rather, for a sacred holy position that has over a billion followers? If this was about Muhammad muslims would be up in arms. But it's just normal christian god hating so no foul. Way to stay classy Harvey

None of you people including TMZ have any respect for anyone else. I'm not Catholic, maybe your not either, but Traditionally America holds the Pope with respect. Try it people.

You dont want Number 6! Number 6 bad. There are only supposed to be 111 popes and if we got to 112 it was the end of times. Look up St. Malachy. He says the 112 pope will be black and his name will be Peter the Roman. Number 6 name is PETER turkson. So number 6 is bad.
