Today I heard some interesting news, and I just don’t know how to feel about it. So, obviously, I need to share with you guys. Here goes: according to GossipCop, Channing Tatum is reportedly People’s Sexiest Man Alive this year. Not Ryan Gosling… again. Channing Tatum.
I don’t know how to react. Should I be happy? I mean, Channing is pretty hot. His abs look wonderful and he’s always got this cute dumb-founded look on his face, like he doesn’t really know where he is or what he’s doing but he likes it. Should I be sad? After all, my number one hot guy/fake boyfriend Ryan Gosling was not chosen. And honestly, it hurts a little bit to not see his gorgeous face be given the title it deserves. Or should I be furious? Because, um, let me reiterate that Ryan was snubbed YET AGAIN. Don’t even get me started on last year’s Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper. Just don’t.
I mean, yeah, this hasn’t even been confirmed yet, so technically there’s still hope for Ryan. There is still hope. People might be pulling a major prank on us. Maybe they’re going to let us believe it’s Channing and then at the last minute they’re going to be like, “JK, it’s Ryan! Got you!”
Or maybe, like our pals over at The Frisky pointed out, Ryan got offered the title, but turned it down. I could see this being totally possible. He’s basically a real-life version of a superhero and he’s also very modest (trust me, I met him. No big deal. Just the greatest night of my life). I mean, he did save a woman from getting hit by a car and he also broke up a fight. It would totally make sense if he was too embarrassed to be named the Sexiest Man Alive. Maybe it’s just not Ryan’s style.
But seriously… I’m pretty much left conflicted here. If People decided not to go with Ryan, then I guess Channing is a good choice. Like I said before, he is pretty sexy, and that’s obviously a requirement. He also seems pretty in love with his wife Jenna Dewan, and I’m a sucker for romance. And he’s got some good dance moves… just watch Magic Mike or Step Up for proof. Or just watch them just because. Oh, and how can we forget that Channing was a male stripper before his acting days? I don’t know if it gets much more sexy than that.
Except, yes, I know that it does – in the form of Ryan Gosling. Damn you, People. Stop crushing my dreams and make Ryan your Sexiest Man Alive! I’m thinking of starting a Ryan Was Robbed chant. Who’s with me?!
Do you think Channing Tatum should be the Sexiest Man Alive? Or do you think it should be Ryan Gosling? Or someone else? Tell me in the comments!
