It’s an important day in Tabloidland: People has named its Sexiest Man Alive for 2010. And the winner is… Ryan Reynolds. Hmm. Here are Flavorpill HQ, we greeted the news with a resounding “meh” — and then proceeded to brainstorm a list we liked better. We’ve taken 10 selections from People’s preview gallery and come up with our own, less obvious, alternatives. Because let’s face it: we don’t need anyone to tell us that Jake Gyllenhaal and Jon Hamm are hot. Check out our list after the jump.
The Mad Man
People picked: Jon Hamm
Our pick: Vincent Kartheiser. Listen, no one can argue about Hamm’s sexiness. And everyone dismisses preppy, slicked-backed Pete Campbell, who’s always making that obnoxious bitch face. But check out Kartheiser in real life, with piercing blue eyes, slightly shaggy hair, and a couple days’ worth of scruff and see if you don’t start to look at the actor in a new light.
