This list could go on and on and on and on and...yeah, you get it. There is no shortage of extremely hot men in this world. And can we just say: AMEN.

But the only guy everyone's talking about right now is Thor stud Chris Hemsworth, who was just named People's Sexiest Man Alive! A title so prestigious it must be capitalized. And while some of the dudes below are probably honored within the pages of the sexy issue, we think they could have just as easily taken the title. And again, AMEN FOR THAT.
