People Magazine’s Controversial Choice For Sexiest Alaskan Alive

People made mistakes all over their “Sexiest Man Alive” issue.

You might already be aware that People has released its 2012 list of the “sexiest men alive,” and that’s it’s full of terrible choices. People also declared a “United States of Sexy” list, picking the sexiest men alive that hail from each of the 50 states. In an upset that rivals Channing Tatum over Ryan Gosling, the runt of the Miami Heat, Mario Chalmers, was selected as the sexy delegate from Alaska. We realize that naming the sexiest Alaskan alive is no small task, but look at all the worthy Alaskans People overlooked.
