The men’s magazine Maxim has just released its 2012 “Hot 100” list (“the definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women”) and our friendly neighbor comes in at a respectable 69–putting him ahead of Pippa Middleton, JWOWW and even Sofia Vergara.
This was the first time the magazine had readers weigh in on their favorite women. That might explain how Colbert got on the list: his legion of fans (aka the “Colbert Nation”) have helped get a NASA treadmill named after him, as well as contributed money to his super PAC.
Still, we can’t help wondering why he didn’t rank better. Maybe next year he should pose in lingerie.
