Her World reacts to Blake Shelton named as the 'sexiest man alive' and it's BRUTAL
Click through to find out who we feel deserved the crown and glory
People Magazine this week announced that Blake Shelton has been named the sexiest man alive 2017. Don’t even know who he is? He’s a 41-year-old American country singer and songwriter who has become more of a globally recognised name since he joined America’s The Voice TV show judging panel. Still no clue? Google him my friends.
He’s the recent boyfriend of pop princess Gwen Stefani – to which we feel perhaps has helped him with this crown. Because let’s be honest, when men have super hot partners they do always seem more attractive! In all honesty, we are all very happy to say he is a good looking man and we want to make it very clear this isn’t ‘the roasting of Blake Shelton’, but we do have rather mixed opinions on this announcement that we just have to air.
Whilst we do understand that ‘sex appeal’ and beauty are completely subjective… if people plan to do polls such like this and make sweeping declarations then they’re asking for our feedback. And our feedback? Well, you best grab the popcorn and read on, because we’re not holding back on this one.
Click through our gallery to see our personal picks of all the male hunks that we feel are more derserving of the title of the Sexiest Man Alive for 2017, side by side with Blake, just for the sake of comparison. Move over Blake Shelton, these major hotties are coming through.
“A country singer-songwriter? Pfftt, hand me over a Viking any time! When my girlfriend urged me to watch ‘The Last Kingdom’ by BBC Television (which you can stream the series on Netflix) because of a blue-eyed hottie, I shrugged her off thinking, ‘what a sub-par show in comparison to Game of Thrones’. I was wrong!
In the ‘The Last Kingdom’, Alexander gets into his swish-buckling character by doing his own stunts (he practises Sanjuro martial art), donning lots of fur, gets slathered on with mud, and isn’t afraid to get in touch with his softer side by crying at the right moments! If he isn’t made the next Sexiest Man Alive by the time the second season comes on-air, I’m starting a major petition.”
“Blake Shelton can’t really be the sexiest man alive?! He’s got a farmer vibe going (sorry) – and that’s not sexy, to me at least.
So who then I think is the sexiest? The correct answer for me to say would be my hubby. But if we’re talking about someone famous, it would have to be David Beckham! Ok he’s starting to show signs of aging, etc but he’s damn hot for someone in his 40s, I must say!”
“Whilst sure, I can accept he is better than average in the looks department, there is no way I would ever certify he is the sexiest man alive. Is he even sexy??? I don’t have any of the required urges when looking at Blake to deem him…erm…sexy. I wanna do a folk song jam with him… but that’s the only duo jam I would be after. I am pretty sure if he wasn’t famous, I’d stroll past him in the street more concerned about whether the coffee shop is still open.
Hot latte or Blake Shelton? I’ll take two sugars thanks.
Who do I think is the sexiest man alive? Easy. Johnny Depp until I die. He was beautiful when he was young, he’s remained handsome as he aged and he makes sleeping with a dirty smelly unwashed pirate a fantasy for all women rather than a nightmare.”
“I don’t think he [Blake Shelton] is?? He’s more charming than sexy so I don’t know what kind of boxes he ticked.
A lot of their ‘sexiest men’ always have scruffy beards and a little white hair so if there was gonna be someone who almost looks like him but is a tad sexier it’s maybe Patrick Dempsey?
But someone who wins the sexy award is Channing Tatum (which he literally did back in 2012) – over and over and over again. Besides the muscles, the killer smile, he also did an amazing job on Magic Mike. So he wins. Hands down!”
“I actually had to google who he was so not sure I would put him in sexiest man ever. Mine have to be Jake Gyllenhaal, Bradley Cooper or Ryan Gosling.
Jake because I like his brooding nature/looks and he’s not your straight up Bradley or Ryan. I also love his sister and feel I would be friends with both of them (am I allowed to make such statements?). They have good down to earth vibes whilst being amazing at what they do and a little illusive.
The other two don’t really need any write up… although Ryan is a new addition for me since BladeRunner – he was SO good.”
“Oh my goodness, I cannot…Blake Shelton, seriously?
My Sexiest Man Alive award has got to be Adam Levine – I mean it can’t get any hotter than him stripping naked for Cosmo UK (and a good cause!!!). Also, I find it sexy when a man isn’t afraid to look vulnerable/goofy/funny/cute.”
“Scrolling past the announcement on my Instagram feed, my immediate thought was, ‘huh, really?’ But then I kind of got it – he seems charming enough and who doesn’t love his bromance with Adam Levine? It’s just that I’ve always got more goofy “dad” vibes from him.
Who’s got my vote (and stolen my heart)? Ryan Gosling, who’s rumoured to have turned down the title in the past. His charisma knows no bounds, which is what makes him so attractive – no matter what cheeky or bashful expression is spread across that gorgeous face. Whether him turning down the praise is fact or fiction, I imagine that he cares way more about the important things – like his craft and family. And frankly, that’s also what makes him such a dream.”
‘No. I know Blake hangs out with Adam Levine but sexiness is not transmitted by osmosis, unfortunately.
The sexiest man alive label might be a bit of a stretch, but Joe Keery (who plays Steve in Stranger Things) is definitely my flavour of the month. Love the charming-but-oh-so-deadly appeal he has going on, and that glorious mane.”
When I think of sex appeal, I think swagger, charisma, and just a little bit dangerous. Blake oozes comforting plaid country vibes – great for when I want to chill at the pub, not so great if I’m thinking about what gets my engines revving.
So who gets my vote? I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again – I’ll always be up all night to get Loki. “I <3 TS” tank tops aside, Tom Hiddleston’s got the style, the smarts, and the slick hips. He’s the anti-Avenger of my heart.”
“I don’t think he’s the sexiest man alive. After watching The Voice and snippets of him on Jimmy Fallon trying sushi for the first time and milking a cow, I can only see him as some old country bumpkin. Not my type.
Maybe someone like Lucky Blue Smith, who is also much closer to my age? Or Alex Pettyfer. Tall, gorgeous eyes and a charming smile.”
“I’ve personally never heard about Blake Shelton until he was named the sexiest man alive. Then I looked him up on Google and found out that he was dating Gwen Stefani. Maybe that in itself gained him some sexy points…cheerleader effect? Does that even count when it’s just two people? I don’t think he’s drop dead sexy, but I can see how he can be deemed attractive – it must be the beard, and his physique (he looks super masculine).
As for who I think is the sexiest guy alive…It would have to be Sam Smith. I know he’s not quite…um, into women. But even before he shed those pounds he already has this classy debonair look to him (maybe because he’s always in a tux). And his voice… need I say more.”
“Sorry, but let me just grab some eyedrops…I think someone botched a Laser eye surgery or something?
Sexiest man alive? Dylan O’Brien – FOR SURE.
Breakout role in Teen Wolf, then the lead in the Maze Runner franchise – before a major on-set accident Now, he’s back as a CIA black ops recruit in the new American Assassin. Looks, range, a hint of mysteriousness (since he’s not really on social media) – he’s got it all.”
