Every year a certain Facebook group that I belong to that is all about pop culture and entertainment news tries to predict who will be this year’s recipient of PEOPLE Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ award. There’s a lot of criteria that goes in to being picked, and believe it or not it’s not all about the sexyness!
Past winners have almost always had a big project to promote or big event coming up and who had been in the news a lot recently for their work or simply as the subject of many magazine stories or blog posts.
Last year Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson got to wear the ‘Sexiest’ crown surprising pretty much no one. He had two huge movies coming out with Baywatch and The Fate of the Furious, as well as voicing one of the main characters in Disney’s hit movie Moana and he’s pretty damn sexy.
Guesses among my friends for this year’s winner ranged from Henry Cavill or Jason Momoa, since both are ridiculously hot and both have Justice League coming out. Idris Elba was another top pick as was Justin Timberlake, since he has his big SuperBowl performance coming and even Ben Affleck. Only one person picked the man who was actually named The Sexiest Man Alive.
