The editors also ranked what features qualify the stars for making the sexy list, like Bradley Cooper’s eyes, Daniel Dae Kim’s chest and Jason Momoa’s arms.

On Tuesday evening, Blake Shelton was announced as this year’s Sexiest Man Alive. Not one to be modest, the country singer and “The Voice” coach jokingly said he was excited to rub the honor in Adam Levine’s face.

In truth, Shelton needed some convincing once he heard the news. His girlfriend of two years, singer and “The Voice” coach Gwen Stefani, told him to embrace it.

“She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment,” Shelton said.

The 6’5” 41-year-old plans on using his new title as often as he can.

“I’ve been ugly my whole life,” he said. “If I can be sexy for a year, I’m taking it. I’m taking it.”

The “Sexiest Man Alive” issue will hit stands Wednesday.
