Blake Shelton? How did the Backstreet Boys not make People’s Sexiest Man list?

How on earth did country singer Blake Shelton win People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive contest? As several memes have asked, “Did everybody else die?!” 

My question is, how the hell did the Backstreet Boys at least not get a photo spread on the inside of the magazine?

Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough, while may not be the spring chickens they were back in 1999, are probably in the best shape of their lives. They perform a two-hour show with heavy dancing and do not lip sync. At all. Let’s see Blake Shelton do that. They work out and are always showing photos of themselves working out on Instagram.

Back in 1999, Kevin did make People’s list as Sexiest Pop Star (see article here).

But with his laser-bright green eyes and chiseled chin, Richardson, 28—deemed the group’s “most likely future male model” by The New York Times—is the one providing a guilty pleasure for Mom too. “He has a very strong presence; his whole aura is sexy,” says the quintet’s fashion stylist Rachel Rosenzweig.

He was a guilty pleasure for Mom’s back then, ya’ll.

While they have noticed the boys for their sexiest in the past, we want to remind them of just how hot they are.

I'm a 30-something-year-old fangirl from Georgia, but basically grew up in Florida. I'm a former journalist, but still a writer, blogger and fangirl 24/7. Nick Carter owns me and Joey McIntyre has had my heart since 1987. I've been obsessed with "Friends" since 1995 and love Jay and Silent Bob.

  1. Blake shelton is the ugliest. but the editors of people have to be nothing but BLIND to look over our beautiful backstreet boys. seriously??? each boy is a beautiful soul in their own way and MORE deserving t hen any of the choices that were picked in the issue. You can call me bias but I don’t care. Backstreet boys DESERVE to be honored with sexiest man alive, they deserve it more then any lame ass actor, or country ugly musician, or tv star or youtube person. BACKSTREET Boys aren’t a fad unlike the rest that were chosen by people magazine. Our boys worked hard for what they were given, they are very sweet guys to each other, fans , friends and family. BSB ALSO Have NEVER stopped in their career of soon to be 25 years. Humble guys only care about making great music and being here for the fans. Love you always backstreet boys.
