Stephen Colbert Makes Maxim’s Sexiest Women List

Bar Rafaeli has topped 2012’s Hot 100 list from Maxim, the yearly ranking of the hottest hotties in all the land. The Israeli model, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model (cover 2009), and ex of Leonardo DiCaprio often lands on such lists, and rounding out the top 5 are mainstays Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis, Katy Perry, and Olivia Wilde.

Besides Kristin Stewart at #15, the list held quite a few surprises. Convicted (and then un-convicted) murderer Amanda Know landed at #92, and animated character Lois Griffin of Family Guy found her way to #85. Wayne Gretsky’s daughter Paulina, a notoriously racy Instagram and Tweeter, took spot 87. Yet the most surprising coup is Stephen Colbert landing at the prized #69 position.

How did this happen? Maxim allowed for fan input for the first time this year. Certainly that support landed Colbert among the most popular hotties, with the Maxim editors awarding him, tongue-in-cheek, the #69 spot. Nevertheless, it is nice to see Colbert breaking this glass ceiling and finally reclaiming hotness for the underprivileged white males.
