Blake Shelton Is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2017

Blake Shelton Is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2017

People Magazine revealed its 2017 selection for "Sexiest Man Alive" on Tuesday, with the honor going to country star and "The Voice" coach Blake Shelton. "That y'all must be running out of people", he told People. "Wow, we've run out of celebrities with both eyes. we're just down to somebody who's somewhat symmetrical".

Shelton and Stefani have been together since November 2015, shortly after he announced his divorce from second wife Miranda Lambert.

He also said that he couldn't wait to rub the honor in the face of his friend and fellow "Voice" judge, People's 2013 Sexiest Man Alive pick, Adam Levine.

"I'm not going to treat this like Hugh Jackman or one of those guys who's humble about it. People are going to hate me over this", Shelton joked.

And, if you think the duo make an unlikely pair, well, Shelton gets that: "She and I, on paper we couldn't be more different, but in life nothing's ever worked better for me".

Oklahoma native Shelton spent a decade in country music before his popularity surged in 2011 as the wise-cracking judge and mentor to aspiring singers on NBC's reality talent competition "The Voice".

Shelton, whose latest album Texoma Shore reached No. 1 on this week's Billboard Top Country Albums, said his 6-foot 5-inch frame has had plenty of awkward moments. "And that's fat", he says.

Shelton does try to stay in shape by exercising on the treadmill and eating as healthy as possible, though all bets are off when he's home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.

"It could be 2 o'clock in the afternoon before I eat and then I realize I'm starving, so then it's a bag of Cheetos". Fishsticks. And like a big pickle, those pickles that come in its own package with juice?
