It's confirmed! Blake Shelton is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2017.
His reaction when he heard the news? “That y’all must be running out of people. Like, wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”
The honor comes with bragging rights. He tells People, “I can’t wait to shove this up Adam’s [butt]. As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that’s really the only thing I care about.”
Adam Levine held the title in 2013.
Blake is the only country star to claim the title.
Gwen Stefani believes People magazine chose the perfect "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2017.
The magazine officially gave the title to Blake Shelton and his girlfriend couldn't agree more. Gwen says, "He’s perfect for it. Somebody that is funny and has a sense of humor is sexy — that’s the No. 1 thing." She added, "[He’s] somebody that is at the top of their game and talented and genuine and cool and generous and just not self-aware at all — completely a man."
Blake isn't the only one in the relationship to be honored by People. Gwen received the magazine's Style Icon award in 2014. (People)
