Here Are 50 Men Hotter Than Blake Shelton

· Updated on May 28, 2018

No time for pleasantries, this is about justice.

People magazine named country singer and Adam Levine bro Blake Shelton as “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2017 and we have something to say. There are a lot of men of color way more deserving of this title than Blake Shelton.

So, I started a simple online poll.

I decided to give it a half hour and in that time, the internet thought of more than half a dozen people that are 100% unabashedly certifiably more sexy than Blake Shelton.

Here you go:

Trevante Rhodes

Idris Elba (he had multiple votes!)

Chadwick Boseman

Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman

Jesse Williams

John Cho (My vote!)
