    Here's What Every "Choice Hottie" Looked Like Since 1999 — Like It's Funny To See What Was Considered Hot Every Year

    I always forget the absolute choke hold Ashton Kutcher had on teens in the early 2000s.

    From 1999–2018, the Teen Choice Awards gave out an award for the "Choice Hottie" of the year.

    It's funny to look back at what each of the nominees looked like from each year because it's essentially what teens considered "hot."
