The 2012 edition of Maxim’s “Hot 100″ list has been revealed by the men’s magazine, but this year is a bit different because readers were actually allowed to participate within the election. The very top spot on the list has been secured by none other than Bar Refaeli, and I actually agree with this selection. Bar is gorgeous and has a very well-proportioned body that just doesn’t quit. She also seems to have an adventurous spirit and (for a supermodel) a relatively quick wit as well. In a (well-rehearsed?) display of humility, Bar has spoken out on her surprise at being named in the #1 spot by Maxim’s readers. Surely, she can’t be surprised at being called utterly gorgeous on a near daily basis, right?
The supermodel (and Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend) tops Maxim’s Hot 100 list this year – and it’s not hard to see why.
Refaeli tells the magazine in its issue, on stands May 29, that she was “shocked that among all these beautiful ladies, I’m number one.” Meanwhile, Maxim’s editors say the Israeli beauty “puts the ‘promise’ in the Promised Land.”
Refaeli has made the list before – landing in last year’s top 10, in fact.
Other beauties included in the new issue include Blake Lively; Charlize Theron; Rihanna; and Amanda Knox.
The rest of the list is, well, interesting because for some reason, Stephen Colbert shows up at #69. Amanda Knox also sneaks in towards the end of the list as well. Here’s the top 10 after Bar: (2) Olivia Munn (really, so high?); (3) Mila Kunis; (4) Katy Perry; (5) Olivia Wilde; (6) Jennifer Lawrence (oh yeah); (7) Emma Stone; (8) Megan Fox; (9) Malin Akerman; (10) Adrianne Palicki. The full list can be viewed here. So do you think that Bar deserves the top spot, or have her days as a hot, lad-mag babe passed her by already?
