What is People? Year after year, regulation hotties like Mahershala Ali, Eric Bana and our birthday bae Michael B. Jordan (our beloved turns 31 on February 9) get passed over, while country man-child and avid bootcut jean wearer Blake Shelton gets dubbed Sexiest Man Alive 2017?! Okay, so People doesn’t have the best when it comes to choosing hotties—in the past 32 years, there have been two repeat winners (Johnny Depp and George Clooney—because I guess they ran out of dudes?) and literally only TWO men of colour (Denzel Washington and The Rock). We at FLARE feel collectively, personally victimized by this year’s cover star, so we’ve rounded up 15 choice hunks who actually bring the heat. Move over Shelton, these are the tasty snacks we’ve been waiting for.
