Scientifically speaking, People’s Sexiest Man Alive alumni give us a good long-term study of the ever-changing criteria for attractiveness on a year by year basis. It also, in science terms, gives us a lot of man candy to sift through in order to rank the attractiveness of the 25 men who have held this prestigious title.

I will be comparing the hotness of these men based on the age and appearance in the year of their win. For those who have multiple wins, I will be taking the average of their appearance in the years that they won. Trust me, I can do that. I’ve also factored in my bias toward a certain male type and the opinion of my lady parts.

Just in time for International Men’s Day, let’s celebrate the male form. WITH SCIENCE!*
