People Magazine announces sexiest man alive for 2017

People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive has been revealed.

Any ideas who that might be? George Clooney? Brad Pitt? Too old? Okay, how about Ryan Reynolds?

Alright enough debate, are you ready? The 2017 Sexiest Man of the Year, according to People Magazine, is … Blake Shelton, best known as a country singer and host of the popular television show, “The Voice.”

Shelton is in his forties. He was born in Oklahoma to a beauty salon owner and used car salesman. He learned to play guitar at 12 from his uncle.

The special double issue hits newsstands Wednesday, November 15.

Its always interesting to see who makes the cut. They are definitely NOT ageists at People. They include guys from their 20s, 30s, 40, and even the fabulous 50s. Previous winners have included Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Channing Tatum and Shelton’s “Voice” colleague Adam Levine.
