Cape Town – It’s that time of year when People magazine unveils who it thinks is the Sexiest Man Alive.
This year their pick was country music star and The Voice coach, Blake Shelton.
?????? @BlakeShelton is this year's #SexiestManAlive! And most importantly, he 'can't wait' to stick it to his fellow #TheVoice judge (and former SMA) @AdamLevine. ?? https://t.co/LtQ2q8QSkU pic.twitter.com/g7IilIXzxA— People (@people) November 15, 2017
Following the announcement the internet asked very important questions. One of them being: Why?

According to People, Blake won the annual title because he has “sex appeal, a sense of humour and has the voice of an angel.”
According to everyone else, however, Blake would be last on a sexiest man alive list when there are people like Charlie Hunnam, Trevante Rhodes, Manish Dayal, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and so many more eligible hunks.

This is the only appropriate reaction to learning that People’s sexiest man alive is Blake Shelton pic.twitter.com/2MzMEsyY4E— Molly (@isteintraum) November 15, 2017
I don't want to live in a world where Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive.— Frank Costa (@feistyfrank) November 15, 2017
Maybe i'm missing something, but how can Blake Shelton be the "Sexiest Man Alive" when Idris Elba is still living?— Jason Leal (@JasonLeal25) November 15, 2017
Meanwhile, it seems as though Blake’s title was assigned purely to get back at fellow The Voice coach, Adam Levine – who was People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2013.
And of his hot new title Blake said: “I'm not going to treat this like Hugh Jackman or one of those guys who's humble about it.
“People are going to hate me over this because it's going to be used in every conversation, whether it's at 'The Voice' or at the feed store in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, or in a conversation with a doctor. Until I have to hand the title, which is what it is to me, over to someone else, this is mine. This is like a certification.”
With all that said, who do you think would have made a better Sexiest Man Alive for 2017?
