He would have been a baker. Sensible.
When the One Direction guys got to chat with some of the kids from the Rays of Sunshine charity recently, one young Directioner asked Harry what he would have done if the X Factor stint didn't totally snowball into the most impressive career ever.
Hollie Carter's mom told the Milton Keynes Citizen about the meet and greet experience, explaining, "It was just incredible and Hollie loved every second of it. Harry was brilliant. He got down on her level, chatted to her and hugged her."
She added, "She asked all the band members what they would like to do if they weren't in the band. Harry said he'd probably be a baker!"
Of course, we all know that Harry spent some time working in a bakery, so it makes sense. We'd love to get our hands on one of his fresh baked treats...sigh.
