Stephen Colbert is the 69th Hottest Woman in America

Bar Refaeli is number one on Maxim's Hot 100 — "The definitive list of the world's most beautiful women" — but who cares, because Stephen Colbert is number 69.

For the first time in the august publication's storied history, the ranking of hotties was handed over to Maxim's readers, who promptly voted for the Comedy Central host to beat out such fan favorites as Christina Hendricks, Sofía Vergara, Pippa Middleton, and even Lois Griffin.

In case it wasn't yet clear just how seriously you should be taking this list's designation as the "definitive" guide to "the world's most beautiful women," recently acquitted murder suspect Amanda Knox is sitting comfortably in the 92nd spot, well ahead of Kat Dennings, who could only muster a recount-triggering 97.
