Who is your sexiest man alive for 2021? (Picture: Getty Images)
It’s that time of the year, folks! People magazine is about to announce which beloved star will be crowned Sexiest Man Alive for 2021.
After internet favorite Michael B. Jordan landed the title last year, the pressure is on to name a successor and we here at Metro.co.uk have put our heads together to create a shortlist of likely options.
However, we can’t help but wonder if the world might be pleasantly surprised to wake up and find one of these other stars boasting the title instead.
Here are our predictions for the lusted after names who could easily walk away with the crown.
Name a man who can make us burn like Rege-Jean Page, we’ll wait (Picture: SplashNews.com)
How could we start with anyone else? Rege-Jean Page left viewers across the globe burning thanks to his role as Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in Bridgerton.
From his enchanting voice, smoldering stares and mesmerizing spoon-licking skills, every single scene featuring RJP had us all hot and bothered for weeks on end. Don’t even get us started on all the actual sex scenes, either!
Dear reader, we’re sure even Lady Whistledown herself would agree that such a win would be most fitting to celebrate the year everyone’s favorite Duke has had.
Can we just take a second to appreciate Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada? (Picture: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images)
Do we even need to explain this choice? This man made an armpit sniff look like the sexiest thing we’ve seen in our entire lives.
If Rege-Jean Page had us all burning, then Oscar Isaac left us melting in a puddle this year after he broke the internet with his co-star Jessica Chastain.
However, Oscar’s appeal is more than just being ridiculously sensual in slow-motion clips.
He’s funny, talented, gets along with everyone and can even get us all thirsting when the look he’s sporting is best described as ‘lightly troubled middle-aged man with a glorious beard wearing a cashmere sweater and glasses’.
Pete Davidson has got BDE to spare and we love that for him (Picture: Dia Dipasupil/WireImage)
Considering he’s currently being linked to Kim Kardashian right now, it’s safe to say there is definitely something about Pete.
Thanks to his short-lived relationship with Ariana Grande, the world became very aware of the Saturday Night Live star’s BDE.
With the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, Phoebe Dynevor and Kaia Gerber as his exes, we cannot ignore the facts – Pete has got IT.
Maybe it’s time for a comedian to get their moment to shine.
Harry Styles’ smile gives us a watermelon sugar high (Picture: Handout/Helene Marie Pambrun via Getty Images)
Harry Styles has graduated from teen heartthrob to the internet’s boyfriend with ease during his career so far.
Plus saucy songs like Watermelon Sugar make it even easier to swoon over the former One Direction star.
Mix all of that with the fact he also donates to charitable causes and fights for equality and it’s not hard to see why everybody loves Harry.
Keanu Reeves is a forever favorite (Picture: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)
The one and only Keanu Reeves, a humble king among men and possibly one of the nicest stars in Hollywood.
Whether he’s gifting co-stars with Rolex watches, sending graduation messages to young students or talking about the way his girlfriend helped him overcome the grief of losing his former partner, Keanu warms our hearts in ways that cannot be explained.
The best thing about Keanu is the fact he genuinely doesn’t understand why we all love him so much.
With the Matrix 4 and John Wick heading to screens soon, we’ll get to see our favorite on the big screen and the excitement about that is enough to put him in the running.
Let us count the ways we adore Jason Sudeikis (Picture: Emma McIntyre/WireImage)
Everyone is loving Ted Lasso this year and Jason Sudeikis is a big reason.
The comedic actor has always been popular but there’s something about watching him play a kind but struggling soccer coach that’s really tugged at heartstrings lately.
Plus, he should be in the running purely from that sexy teacher conference skit on Saturday Night Live last month.
We aren’t trying to cause any drama by putting him up against his ex-wife’s new boyfriend, Harry Styles, so we’ll just point out that Olivia Wilde has great taste.
Oh, to be that horse (Picture: Burberry / Mario Sorrenti)
Another internet boyfriend that has fans thirsting simply for being himself.
The actor went viral this year after transforming into a mythical centaur for a Burberry fragrance campaign.
Many were left picking their jaws off the floor at the sight of Kylo Ren’s rippling muscles and we do not blame them.
Others, like late-night comedian John Oliver, simply wish the Marriage Story star would ‘demolish’ them. Thankfully, Adam can see the funny side of such extreme thirst.
Lil Nas X
It’s the constant slay for us (Picture: Emma McIntyre/Getty Images for iHeartMedia)
What’s sexier than living your truth and absolutely bossing the charts while doing so?
Lil Nas X has been racking up the wins ever since Old Town Road broke chart records and his recent music videos have reminded us all that the 22-year-old is looking GOOD.
The Grammy winner is changing conversations around representation in style and we’d love to see him add yet another victory to his name.
Timothee Chalamet can call us by his name anytime (Picture: Vianney Le Caer/Invision/AP)
Another actor loved by many on the internet is the adorable Timothee Chalamet.
Taking into account the fact he seems to be in every movie going these days, the actor feels like a strong candidate this year.
From his natural chemistry with co-stars such as Zendaya, to his charming interviews and perfect French accent, what’s not to love?
The best Chris, yeah we said it (Picture: ACE Universe)
As we mentioned, Chris is reportedly the winner of the title this year and no, it’s not because of that leaked photo.
According to Page Six, the Knives Out hunk was in the running last year and we bet it had a lot to do with the way we all lost our minds over him wearing that cable knit sweater.
Add in the fact he’s been using his platform to try and help American voters understand politics better thanks to his bi-partisan website, A Starting Point, and you basically have the perfect candidate.
Richard Madden can do it all and we love to see it (Picture: REUTERS)
We can all agree, Richard Madden has the range. And who can ever forget that he was once the King of the North, Robb Stark!
The Game of Thrones star has been a fan favorite ever since he was running around with dire wolves and long may his reign continue, in our opinion.
Oh, and he’s also been linked to the search for the next 007 so that says it all.
Cousin Greg from Succession (but also, the entire Roy family)

All the Succession fans out there will agree that there is something about each member of the Roy family that makes them worthy candidates for this title.
Let’s start with Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) because we doesn’t love the bumbling whistleblower who has got himself caught up in some pretty intense battle?
Fun fact – there’s a sex toy that vibrates whenever Greg pops up in the show…

But then we have Ronan, wonderful kinky Ronan who has been so deprived of genuine love that we now get to enjoy the pervert that was formed due to that trauma.
Kendall, Logan, and Connor all have their moments too. Though one could argue that Shiv and Gerri totally wipe the floor with all of these guys when it really comes down to it.
Who do you think will take the crown this year? Vote in the poll, below!
