Even Blake Shelton can't believe he's been named People's Sexiest Man Alive.
"The room just got hotter," Ellen DeGeneres told him on her show Thursday. "It really did."
"I mean, you know, you can't be the Sexiest Man Alive unless you're the Sexiest Man Alive," the "I'll Name the Dogs" singer joked of his newfound status. "You know, I said this in the magazine—when I did my interview for Sexiest Man Alive—that I'd been fat and ugly my whole life, and if only for one year I get to be sexy, I'm going to milk this for everything that it's worth."
Shelton succeeds Dwayne Johnson (2016), David Beckham (2015), Chris Hemsworth (2014), Adam Levine (2013), Channing Tatum (2012), Bradley Cooper (2011), Ryan Reynolds (2010), Johnny Depp (2009), Hugh Jackman (2008), Matt Damon (2007) and 18 more stars who've received the honor. Looking at old photos of himself, he said, "Mullets coming back this year! That used to be ugly. It's officially sexy. It's the law now. It's like the sun coming up. I'm sexy."
