The Sexiest Man Alive 2010 is to be announced tonight. However, the Sexiest Man Alive 2010 results have already been leaked online, before the big announcement on ABC. Normally, People’s announcement of the year’s hottest man isn’t televised, yet this year is a special occasion. This is the 25’th anniversary of the competition, so ABC is letting Kim Kardashian host a reflection of the prize, before the newest honoree is revealed. Yet those who watch the Sexiest Man Alive 2010 show will already know who wins by 10 pm est.
People has already released the cover for their next issue, although with its headliner. As it turns out, the winner is someone who is already in the headlines today, for other reasons. His new superhero movie just released its first trailer yesterday, and now it has gotten yet another boost.
Tonight, the Sexiest Man Alive 2010 will be introduced as Ryan Reynolds, at the end of ABC’s hour long special. People’s cover even has him dwarfing the announcement of the royal wedding, and a tour of Barbra Streisand’s dream home.
Below Reynolds, Johnny Depp and Conan O’Brien’s pictures are also included, as they are among the other sexy men of the year. However, they are not No. 1, as the honor went to Reynolds before his big breakout to come in 2011.
Even before being named the Sexiest Man Alive 2010, Reynolds was on the rise. After he started out in comedies like Van Wilder, he became a sex symbol in films like Definitely, Maybe and The Proposal. But he will reach new heights as The Green Lantern next summer – as the buildup for that film revved up with last night’s debut trailer.
Between the first Green Lantern teaser and this new honor, Reynolds is the big star of the day on many level. He now follows in the footsteps of over 20 sexy men before him, as he joins a special fraternity that opened in 1985.
The Sexiest Man Alive 2010 joins the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp and many more. Mel Gibson started it all with his win in 1985, with Depp claiming the crown last year.
The 34-year-old Reynolds is the youngest winner since then 31-year-old Jude Law took the honors in 2004. He teased to People that he may have new perks with wife Scarlett Johansson – who is often considered the sexiest woman alive herself.
Although the suspense is now out of the Sexiest Man Alive TV special, ABC will go on with its introspective, starting at 10 pm est.
