Who Will Be Named the Sexiest of Them All?
November 16, 2005

Attention ladies -- it's the day you've all been waiting for: a date with People's Sexiest Man Alive! There are many contenders, but just one title, and "Extra" takes you inside the stiff competition.

From Tyson Beckford to Matthew McConaughey, these hot hunks have Hollywood's sexiest bodies, most fabulous abs and even some secret bad-boy behavior.

"My worst habit is chewing tobacco," "Desperate Housewives" star James Denton admitted.

Some things about People's Sexiest Men may surprise you. "I love trees, plants and flowers," rocker Tommy Lee revealed.

The list was not without its usual suspects, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, and you can bet People didn't forget that dreamy "Grey's Anatomy" doc, Patrick Dempsey.

Denton does just fine playing a sexy plumber on TV, but when it came time to pose for the camera, his wife had to give him some tips.

People magazine's Julie Jordan told us it's no surprise the "Housewives" hottie made the hunk list for a second year in a row. "We love the fact that he's so comfortable in his skin," she said.

Meanwhile, two of ABC's "Lost" castaways made the cut: handsome Matthew Fox and Daniel Dae Kim.

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn crashed this year's list, as did "Hustle and Flow's" Terrence Howard and everybody's favorite "Entourage" agent, Jeremy Piven. And believe it or not, so did "40-Year-Old Virgin" Steve Carell.

"His sense of humor really puts him over the edge in terms of being sexy," Jordan explained.

While chart-topping crooners Bono, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Kanye West make the final cut, there can only be one Sexiest Man Alive. And this year the honor goes to (drum roll please) Matthew McConaughey!

"He's got that southern charm that oozes," Jordan said. "It's extremely appealing, extremely approachable. He's pretty humble. He's pretty much the perfect package for the Sexist Man Alive."

Make your date with Matthew and the rest of the boys when the new issue of People magazine hits newsstands this Friday.
