On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel revealed that
People Magazine's choice for the 2014 Sexiest Man Alive is Thor star Chris Hemsworth.
Hemsworth, 31, had been
part of a long list of celebs whose names were floating around as possible contenders for the title. Many actually considered him a long shot compared to actors like Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Pratt, Matthew McConaughey and his younger brother, Hunger Games heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. All these men had projects come out this year, and/or are set to have something come out soon.

However, it didn't take long for the internet to make some suggestions of their own on who should have been chosen for this coveted cover.

one sexy criminal, minus the whole assassination thing…)
Meanwhile, some people on Twitter simply aren't good at making concrete choices…
There's no denying that Chris Hemsworth is an objectively attractive human being, but is he the Sexiest Man Alive?
Is he even the sexiest man in the upcoming sequel
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron? (It's got to go to James Spader's voice, right?) Check out the trailer below, and judge for yourself.
