Battle of the Sexiest: Who Should Win Next?

It's that time again when PEOPLE magazine gets ready to bestow their Sexiest Man Alive honor upon another lucky guy. Which means last year's winner, Hugh Jackman, will be stepping off that throne to make room for the next piece of man candy.

When asked who he'd nominate to be this year's Sexiest Man Alive, Jackman wasn't exactly humble. "Me! I want to be the first to have it back-to-back, buddy," he joked. "That would be fantastic!"

While Hugh's Aussie charm is undeniable, we think it's only fair that another Hollywood hottie get a shot. Thus, we're offering our unsolicited services to the people at PEOPLE. Here are our picks for Sexiest Man Alive:

Jon Hamm
Though we don't necessarily agree with his character's loose interpretation of wedding vows, Mad Men star Jon Hamm is one of the hottest men on television. Considering the man portraying Don Draper, it's not really a surprise that so many women fall prey to his charms.

Johnny Depp
Jackman may be gunning for a repeat win, but only two men -- Brad Pitt and George Clooney -- have been doubly sexy in the past. And if there's another man worthy of joining such a presitgious group of two-time hotties, we'd like that man to be Johnny Depp. He was 2003's Sexiest Man Alive, and not only has he not aged a day since then, Depp has never lost the boyish good looks he had when he made his showbiz debut on the 1980s series, 21 Jump Street.

Barack Obama
No matter what your political preference, it's hard to deny the attractiveness of the 44th President of the United States. He's tall, and he's got a confident walk, a smooth voice, a killer smile and a cool-cucumber demeanor that makes us shiver. And, as the first lady more than proves, Obama has great taste in women.

Matthew Fox
His role as the take-charge Dr. Jack Shepherd on the last five seasons of Lost has proven Matthew Fox's sex appeal. This more mature Matthew is even hotter than his name-making turn as Charlie Salinger in the 1990s cult-hit, Party of Five. To put it simply, Matthew Fox more than earns his name.

Justin Timberlake
Britney Spears has made more than a few mistakes in her day, but one of the biggest was letting Justin Timberlake get away. He's so much more than a boy-band flash-in-the-pan. Anyone who's watched his Saturday Night Live appearances knows he's also humble and quick-witted, too. And you know what they say about men who can dance well...

Joking aside, PEOPLE's current Sexiest Man Alive says he's looking forward to moving on.

"I thought there were thousands of other guys that deserved it, but it's been a great year. But now the pressure's off," Jackman said. "I can be a slob again."
