Move Over People Magazine: Queerty’s Picks For Sexiest Man Alive 2012

Today People magazine revealed its pick for the Sexiest Man Alive in 2012: Channing Tatum.

Okay, sure, Channing Tatum is attractive and can make fun of himself—two key ingredients in being truly sexy. But the Magic Mike star doesn’t turn us into Jell-O with a wink and nod. So we thought we’d go through some of our nominees for the honor.

Granted, the Sexiest Man Alive is just probably someone random guy next door.  (Not our guy next door, of course—he looks like a naked mole rat.) But for the same of argument, we’ll keep it to famous figures. And since we can’t see Savannah Guthrie interviewing Spencer Reed on the Today show we’re gonna have to nix porn stars. (Sorry, guys, we love you all!)

Below, check out Queerty’s nominees for the Sexiest Man Alive. Then tell us who were you rooting for in the comments section.

Queerty’s Picks for the Sexiest Man Alive

Jon Hamm

Funny, good-looking, a good actor and hasn’t found a pair of pants than can hide his VPL.

 

Nate Silver

Smart is sexy—and so is being right.

 

Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland

Not only is O’Malley quite the hunk, but he fought hard for marriage equality in his state—and got chocked up when it passed!

 

Cheyenne Jackson

We once saw this Performers star at an event—the man is even better looking in person than on screen.

 

Adam Levine

The pro-equality rocker got his arm ripped off on American Horror Story—and we’d still hit it.

 

Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo

Kluwe and Ayanbadejo, two pro footballers, have helped to redefine what it means to be a jock, and look damn fine doing it.

 

Ryan Gosling

Any year, every year.

 

President Obama

The sexiest POTUS we can recall—Michelle is a very lucky lady.

      I like Chris Kluwe. He is smart, funny, compassionate and smoking hot. A very sexy combination.

      “Ryan Gosling

      Any year, every year.”

      Ain’t that the truth! He gets my vote.

      oh Chris Kluwe for me too!!

      attitude and smarts.. VERY sexy. tight football pants don’t hurt.

      Ryan Gosling I’m sort of sick of? he’s a tad overexposed, as far as I’m concerned. Sure, he’s good looking, but Cheyenne Jackson is objectively better looking. Besides, I suspect that if Gosling didn’t have the “photoshop abs” (no, he’s not photoshopped, it’s a joke from one of his recent movies) he probably wouldn’t be on so many “sexiest” lists.

      Ben Cohen, Ed Burns, Hal Sparks, Aaron Ekhart, Luke Wilson.
      They’re not only classically handsome, they have beautiful proportions in the body department. Sparks and Cohen are also smart.

      Ryan Gosling. He’s not only sexy, but a samaritan too, having saved a woman from a purse snatcher in New York.

      I prefer slightly autistic DRIVE-style Gosling.

      Drive Gosling can hammer a bullet into my skull any day of the week, yo.

      Although they’re a little late to the game, People Mag got it right this time. Channing Tatum is long-time Drool-Worthy, can dance his ass off, is funny AND flexes his charitable muscles, too. As I’ve been preaching for what seems like forever, Channing Tatum is, in MY opinion, Perfection Personified, yo. (And he’s well-aware and appreciative of his Gay following…) Call me, Chan. ANYtime… ;)

      The list is trending kind of mature, which is fine, but I’m not ashamed to say if I was 30 years younger, I’d be all over bromantic (What’s Wrong With It?) YouTube sensations Chris and Gary.

      @magsmagenta: It is the sexiest MAN not GIRLFRIEND.@John: HELLO? MAN not BOY. Most of you girls are typical predictable Queers. Just because a guy is hot doesn’t necessarily mean he is sexy. It has to be a combination of looks, personality, intelligence, and achievement. We are talking about THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE. NOT JUST who you want to F**K. SUPERFICIAL MUCH???

      Channing Tatum has a head shaped like a box and a personality to match. I don’t get it at all. Dude bores me to tears. He looks like a melting Sam Worthington. No amount of pecs is going to excuse being a snooze.

      @Dumdum, I had to google him, but, honey, Colton Haynes is 24, so let’s not harsh on John’s celebrity man crush, OK? And the next time somebody plays the “I like mature men. How superior of me.” card, I swear I will upload a picture of myself in a mankini. And I’m 52 and frequently eat Hostess Ho Hos for breakfast.

      Adam Levin or Ryan Goslin….that’s a tough one. I’d add Chris Hemsworth as Thor to that list. :)

      @kurt_t: Everyone is a kid to me, even you. I am so old that when I was a boy The Dead Sea was only sick. Colton is hot but he is still a boy. He’s the only reason I watch Teen Wolf, well him and all the other hot guys. Chris Kluwe RULES.

      Tom Hiddleston … plays Loki in both “Thor” and “The Avengers”. Also plays Prince Hal and King Henry V in the BBC’s “The Hollow Crown”. Played F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”, and Captain Nicholls in Spielberg’s “War Horse”. Shakespearean actor. AMAZING man! Very articulate; very intelligent. Polite. Humble. Funny. Too bad I’m old enough to be his mother … but even so. Nice!!!

      Jason Statham has my vote. He is smoking hot, and the real deal, he does his own stunts.
