In what can only be summed up by chalking this up to 2017, People magazine has announced its Sexiest Man Alive — and it’s none other than Blake Shelton. We’ll let that sink for a little bit. And let’s just put it out there that, while he’s not a goblin by any stretch of the imagination, and is most definitely attractive and adorable and funny, when you hear the word “sexy,” an image of the country star/The Voice judge doesn’t exactly spring to mind.

As 2017 comes crashing to an end, People‘s choice seems about right. Despite living in the same universe as Idris Elba, Ryan Gosling and Sterling K. Brown, as well as dozens of other men, all of whom are sexy and alive, the magazine made yet another questionable pick in a year when their choice could’ve really made an impact. And Blake fully agreed.

“Y’all must be running out of people,” he told the magazine. “Like, wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”

All kidding aside, Shelton credits his girlfriend of two years, Gwen Stefani, for getting him to embrace the title. “She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment.” If nothing else, it gives him a reason to stick it to Adam Levine.

“I can’t wait to shove this up Adam’s ass,” Shelton added. “As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that’s really the only thing I care about.”

Well, at least he’s having fun with it which, really, is probably the best and only way to go. Blakey is a delight and a hoot and is one half (some would even argue the better half) of one the best bromances on television, so we kinda-sorta get it.

All right, we’re warming up to him already. So let’s not rob him of this honour. Let’s celebrate People‘s pick.

Prepare to swoon while staring into the eyes of the #SexiestManAlive! 👀🔥😍

OK, so he’s kind of a Baldwin, what with those dreamy eyes. But it’s still more about cuteness, not so much sexiness. Congrats, Blake, but we’re kind of holding out hope that People brings sexy back in 2018 with one of these guys, all of whom should have a shot at gracing next year’s cover.
