Sexiest Man Alive 2020: Readers' Choice Poll Results
You voted, and the results are in: The sexiest men in every category, from Sexiest New Dad to Sexiest Man in a Mask
Guy Who Has Been Sexy So Long, they Should Retire His Sexy Jersey Number
Like a fine wine, these stars just get sexier with age - but Brad Pitt is the one who got the reader vote to officially be named Sexy Emeritus (with competition from George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Robert Redford and Idris Elba).
Even giving up his royal duties and moving to California wasn't enough to cost Prince Harry his Sexiest Royal title (runners-up include Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden, Prince Felix of Luxembourg, Prince Mateen of Brunei and Prince William).
Liam, Chris and Luke Hemsworth got the brotherly love in this category, beating out fellow fraternal faves Andrew and Chris Cuomo, Goldie Hawn's sons Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell, Chris and Scott Evans and Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas.
Sexiest Small-Screen Star
They're so dreamy, on cable or streaming! Jensen Ackles was voted your top TV hunk, facing competition from his Supernatural costar Jared Padalecki, Dead to Me's James Marsden, The Good Place's William Jackson Harper and Watchmen's Jovan Adepo.
Sexiest Sports Guy
There were athletic hotties from all arenas represented, but in the end, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threaded the needle to beat Blake Griffin, Brooks Koepka, Noah Syndergaard and Sean McVay.
Sexiest Content in Quarantine
Lockdown heated up when these guys posted to their feeds. Shawn Mendes got voted steamiest social media content, over Jason Derulo, Jake Gyllenhaal, Justin Bieber and Tyler Cameron.
Sexiest International Man
We may not have had the Olympics this year, but international competition was fierce among Jungkook (South Korea), Dan Levy (Canada) Keith Urban (Australia), Matthew Rhys (Wales) and Paul Mescal (Ireland) - with the BTS star taking home the win.
Sexiest Happily Settled Guy
Relationship bliss looks good on Keanu Reeves, Kevin Bacon, Seth Rogen and Tom Hanks - but the glow of Blake Lively's love gave Ryan Reynolds the boost he needed to take home this win.
Sexiest Newly-Single Guy
Armie Hammer has the most in-demand digits since hitting the market earlier this year, but Gerard Butler, Brian Austin Green and Karamo Brown are all swipe-right-worthy as well. (And of course, Offset - single at the time of the poll - is now back with Cardi B!)
Sexiest New Dad
All these guys (Ed Sheeran, Artem Chigvintsev, Zayn Malik and Joshua Jackson) got a fatherhood glow-up this year, but Joe Jonas has the dad bod PEOPLE readers most admire.
The beats were hot in 2020, but Harry "Watermelon Sugar" Styles ended up winning hottest hitmaker opposite Bad Bunny, BTS, Roddy Ricch and The Weeknd.
Sexiest Guy Who Entertained Us in Lockdown
Some Good News: John Krasinski (whose feel-good quarantine content kept everyone smiling) won this category; competitors included Jimmy Fallon, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah.
Sexiest Reality Show Judge
The votes are in, and The Voice's Nick Jonas beat fellow Voice judges (and former Sexiest Men Alive!) Blake Shelton and John Legend, plus Dancing with the Stars' Derek Hough and The Great British Baking Show's Paul Hollywood.
Sexiest Man in a Mask
They eyes had it this year, as men who cared about public health masked up across the country. Jacob Elordi was voted hottest masked man, with competition from Ben Affleck, Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman and Patrick Dempsey.
We'll let Merriam-Webster explain the definition of "zaddy" to you, then tell you that John Stamos won Sexiest Zaddy in a category that included Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Jude Law and Mark Consuelos.
Sexiest Netflix Heartthrob
"Netflix and chill" has taken a whole new meaning this year (since we haven't been able to do anything else) which is why our fake boyfriends mean more to us than ever before. To All the Boys I've Loved Before hottie Noah Centineo still reigns supreme, but sexy streaming stars Chase Stokes, Darren Barnet, Jordan Fisher and Taylor Zakhar Perez are right on his heels.
Sexiest Guy Who Had a Big 2020
Haters will say it's rigged, but PEOPLE (the TV Show!) host Lawrence K. Jackson won his category fair and square, over fellow breakout hotties Anthony Ramos, John David Washington, Jonathan Majors and Paul Mescal. What can we say - we know how to pick 'em!
Cole Sprouse took top honors in a competitive category (which included brother Dylan, as well as former cuties-turned-hotties Josh Peck, Logan Lerman and Noah Galvin).
Sexiest YouTube Star
For the second year in a row, David Dobrik took home top honors in his category, this year beating Donal Skehan, Korean Englishman's Josh and Ollie, Good Mythical Morning's Rhett and Link and Hot Ones' Sean Evans.
Sexiest Guy on TikTok
Chris Olsen's TikTok dominance extended to taking top honors in this category opposite Julian Burzynski, Juju Smith-Schuster, Max Foster - and even his own boyfriend, Ian Paget.
