Joe Manganiello is People's Hottest Bachelor for this year, a move that many women around the world can surely support. This type of recognition from the magazine has a tendency to draw plenty of criticism, and this year is no exception. The magazine shared the big news on Monday.
Different guys take this “honor” in different ways, but it seems Manganiello is embracing it. He tweeted out a picture of the cover and added, “THANK YOU @peoplemag!!!” The cover photo is definitely a steamy shot of the “True Blood” star that will get hearts racing. There will be a full piece on the actor in this week's issue, which goes on stands Friday.
This honor is seemingly different from the title of “People's Sexiest Man,” an issue which typically comes out each November. In terms of past recipients of that title, the 2013 winner was Maroon 5 singer and “The Voice” mentor Adam Levine. Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds have all gotten recent nods as well.
As is always the case with these types of People magazine declarations, some people love the choice of Joe Manganiello while others scoff. He certainly isn't everybody's cup of tea, but he is a hot commodity these days. The “True Blood” star describes himself as a hot-blooded person who is passionate and likes things spicy.
In addition to starring in season 7 of “True Blood,” Manganiello is starring in the “Magic Mike” sequel that is in the works. He also has a documentary coming out titled “La Bare,” which he directed. What do you think of the choice of Joe Manganiello as People's Hottest Bachelor?
