Maverick Magazine Exclusive: The 50 Hottest Women Alive - 2006 Edition


And the winner is
you'll have to read to find out
So last week I decided to do my own world's sexiest poll. The turnout was pretty good. The original LJ post had some 170 comments before I was a dumbass and erased them all. Luckily, I had saved all the votes. There were another 25 on the repost, and the myspace crosspost had another 12. Each voter was allowed to vote for up to 10 women with 10 points being awarded to their number 1 choice, 9 for number 2, all the way down to 1 for number 10. In all, 53 ballots were cast with 437 votes for a total of 2587 points. In all, 218 different women were named. In the end the women were ranked by number of points with ties being broken by number of votes. And if there was still a tie, it was simply allowed to remain.

And now the results:

Honorable mentions must be given to Sarah Michelle Gellar, Shirley Manson, Lindsay Lohan and Mena Suvari, all of whom tied for 51st place with 12 points and 2 votes.

So now I am curious as to how people think this worked out. My main thought here was that because I probably have a more varied (albeit smaller) readership than the magazines that usually do this sort of thing (Maxim, People, US Weekly, etc) that I'd end up with a slightly more varied, but still relatively representative list. That is to say, no one would pick the entire top 10 (or 25), but people would be relatively pleased with it. So I ask you, the collective consciousness. Does this list make sense? Was it an interesting exercise? One of the things I find interesting is that although I've heard many people complain about lists like this lacking a certain type of woman (or man in the male versions), I think the people who bubble to the top were relatively non-controversial. That is, I think that if the top 10 list were presented to the American public at large, they would probably believe that the list was put together in a legitmate survey (such that Maxim, et al purport to do) instead of a 53 person web survey.

Anyway, I'm curious as to anyone's thoughts. And thank you all for playing.
