The sexiest man alive? Well, that would be Michael B. Jordan, of course.
The No. 1 heartthrob was presented to the world during Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (Nov. 17), with the man of the moment making his entrance disguised in a yellow hazmat suit, and taking a series of questions.
Nope, this wasn’t The Masked Singer. This was the big reveal of the cover star for People’s sexiest man alive contest.
Following the commercial break, Jordan appeared in his regular clothes. When asked if he was feeling the pressure of owning the sexiest man mantle, Jordan admitted, “Just a little bit, but it’s a cool title to have.”
Stars like Megan Thee Stallion quickly took to social media to react. “Okayyy sexiest man aliveeeee,” the “WAP” rapper commented on Instagram. “No one else stood a chance…Congrats, brother,” Leslie Odom Jr. also wrote.
Later, Jordan tweeted the People cover on social media. “My grandma lookin down talkin bout “that’s my baby,'” he wrote.
The Creed actor succeeds 2019 recipient, John Legend. The former Sexiest Man Alive also joked, “Congratulations to my brother Michael B! And thank you! I can now keep gaining this quarantine weight in peace without the pressure of a title to maintain.”
