I know I'm probably one of the few who cares about this stuff, but Maxim's Sexiest Women in the World issue is a big F'n joke! Every year the list get's more and more ridiculous! They let you vote online and very few of my picks even placed. It's so predictable. Some model won, surprise, surprise. It's the same predictable popularity contest. These picks were an easy guess:Olivia Munn was #2, plus Brooklyn Decker, Blake Lively and Jennifer Love Hewitt for the ten thousandth year in a row. Not that these women aren't pretty, they are beautiful, but give someone else a chance. This year it seemed like nobody took the list seriously. Stephen Colbert was picked as a joke, as was Lois Griffin from Family Guy. But what really got my blood boiling was that they listed Amanda Knox, a murder suspect! Seriously! A murder suspect! Even though I think she is pretty Amanda Bynes only placed because of her recent antics. You could have given those slots to some of the women who didn't make the list this year.

For Example:

Sophia Bush
Rachel Bilson
Leighton Meester
Lucy Hale
Kristin Kreuk
Avril Lavigne
Odette Anabelle
Haley Williams
Debby Ryan
Kayla Ewell
Peyton List (the legal one, not the child actress with the same name)
Ashley Benson
Elisabeth Giles
Troian Bellesario
Daniella Monet
Miranda Cosgrove
Danielle Harris
Kari Byron
Kacey Barnfield
Karen Gillan
Julianna Guill
Candice Accola
Lacey Chabert
Michelle Trachtenberg
etc...



All these women deserve to be on there (some have before) over these joke picks. Does anybody agree. Let me know who you would have picked and if Maxim bugs you too.

These polls are never going to select the sexiest women. They're going to select boring, lowest-common-denominator attractive women. The sexiness equivalent of a processed cheddar cheese slice. That's what you get when you poll thousands of people on something that's a matter of personal preference. All the diversity, anything different, unusual or otherwise interesting gets buried.

I liked some of the choices like Nina Dobrev, but when she's only on notch above a cartoon character and further down the list than a murder suspect or some skank from Jersey Shore, you gotta wonder what's wrong with people!

I definitely agree on Michelle Trachtenberg....she's a lovely and genuine looking young lady.

I view things like this as trade manuals. The women presented are the newest "product" we are supposed to care about. It's somebody trying to sell you something. Go out and meet some real girls, they're much more rewarding then some cover girl.

I've never understood the fascination with Megan Fox. She just looks like a beady-eyed weasel to me.

Francis Bacon said it best: “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness of proportion.”

It's often the imperfections and deviations that make a person stand out. I like a woman with an interesting face, the kind you can look at for a while and try to figure out just what combination of features and proportions it has that make it so compelling. Some might even seem unattractive at first glance, but have a quality that grows on you.

Too many people think a pretty face is a collection of perfect features that add up to greater beauty. They go to plastic surgeons and ask for a nose like one celebrity, lips like another, without considering that it is a unique combination of (often unusual) features that makes their idols exceptionally beautiful to many people. I think of Jennifer Grey, who was a real hottie back in the 80s, and had a really cute face, which included her prominent nose. She got the nose "fixed" and her face, while attractive, lost its distinctiveness. Her career suffered for it.

I think I said it in another thread. You can't be extraordinary without being abnormal.

There's this girl who was in the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows.

Don't know her name and think she's relatively new to the acting scene, but she's purty.  Soon as I get the name... BounceGiggle

I definitely agree on Michelle Trachtenberg....she's a lovely and genuine looking young lady.



She definitely grew up nicely since I used to see her on the old Nickelodeon show The Adventures of Pete and Pete.

She's grown up a bit since Buffy.

As a consumer I have every right to complain about the product. They let people vote on it for the first time this year, and by looking at the results I'd say nobody took it seriously. However, looking at the generic choices, I get the feeling that Maxim picked who they wanted anyway. At least this year they didn't try to kiss the president's butt by putting in the first lady again or like they did that one year with the Bush twins.
