  • Miley Cyrus tops the Maxim Hot 100. Dafuq? The actual attractiveness of previous winners is batted about. Dirk's comments on previous Maxim winners:

    2012 - Bar Refaeli - SI Swimbo and Leo ex. Meh. Attractive but bland. Give me #3 Mila Kunis and #4 Katy Perry, please.

    2011 - Rosie Huntington Whiteley - Hot, but not my type. Olivia Munn was #2? Man, that fake nerd thing really lofted her up. #3 was Katy Perry again.

    2010 - Katy Perry - Alrightee then.

    2009 - Olivia Wilde - Absolutely correct choice!

    2008 - Marisa Miller - Another swimbo. Not my type.

    2007 - Lindsay Lohan?!? - That was three years after Mean Girls when she was at her peak hawtness. As PopSugar said, "The year LL finally turned 21 and could legally drink in the states, she was in and out of rehab three times, racking up the DUIs." That's not hot. That 17-year-old cherry bomb in Mean Girls was hot; in 2007 it was starting to be clear she was a loss.

    2005 & 2006 - Eva Longoria - Hella hot, but her increasing insistence on being Queen La Raza makes her ugly.

    2004 - Jessica Simpson, or as I call her, "That waste of a great pair of tits."

    2003 - Christina Aguilera - She must have been thin then. She's had her moments; now she looks like Miss Piggy. 5-foot-tall girls can't pack on 30 pounds, mmmkay?

    2002 - Jennifer Garner - Really? She's always struck me as a sorta cuteish girl, but the only time she looked hot to me was when she was dressed in rubber as a spy hooker on Alias.

    2001 - Jessica Alba - Yep.

    2000 - Estella Warren - Was Planet of the Apes that much of a boost for her? I see the appeal, but times were different judging from the runners-up. It's always amusing to see chicks you've long forgotten enjoying their 15 minutes.
