Blake Shelton named People's 2017 'Sexiest Man Alive'

15 November 2017

People magazine has chosen Blake Shelton as their 2017 Sexiest Man Alive.

The news was revealed on The Voice on Tuesday (November 14) when Blake surprised Adam by showing him a giant version of the cover on a wall on the Universal lot.

Blake Shelton just nabbed another major honor, and it's not a country music award.

"I've been ugly my whole life", he added in a statement, Reuters reported.

"People are going to hate me over this", the country star and coach on The Voice commented to the celebrity magazine. "If I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it".

His reaction? "That y'all must be running out of people", he joked with the magazine.

Surely his girlfriend of two years, Gwen Stefani, agrees with the title.

"As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that's really the only thing I care about", he said.

Shelton, whose latest album Texoma Shore reached No. 1 on this week's Billboard Top Country Albums, said his 6-foot 5-inch frame has had plenty of awkward moments.

Meanwhile, Hartley, who plays the Hollywood actor Kevin on the show, told the magazine that while he "had more confidence than I probably should have in high school", that confidence didn't last.

Even with his weakness over food (he calls his love for chips and dips "a problem"), Shelton says his new title is "like a confirmation" that he'll enjoy for the rest of his life.

The three men - Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley - all graced the pages of the issue, having been named the "sexiest cast alive".
