Channing Tatum scored People magazine’s big honor of Sexiest Man Alive, but he’s not the only one oozing sex appeal. The publication also honored other men responsible for making women and gay men’s temperature rise. From former Sexiest Man Alive honoree Denzel Washington to South African double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius, People highlight other gorgeous dudes in their annual issue.

If that isn’t enough to quench your hunger for hot men, People also scoured the country to pick the sexiest man from each state. Naturally, Tatum was chosen as Alabama’s representative. How funny would’ve it been if some other schmo, was Mr. Alabama? Pretty hilarious if you ask me. Curious to know which celeb, the publication saddle you with? Find out below.
