Sexiest Man Alive 2012

The results are in! People's "Sexiest Man Alive 2012" goes to Channing Tatum! Remember him from "Step Up"-"Step Up 2: The Streets" and that movie treat "Magic Mike"? He sure had me at shirtless! Now, we can look forward to picking up the November issue and drooling over his chiseled body… and, of course, the runner ups.

How did the "Sexiest Man Alive" react to the news? Tatum told People "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" says Tatum, who married actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum in 2009."I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

Here's how @channingtatum responded via twitter:

And of course he had support:

Not only did the"Magic Mike" hunk score this title but also snatched up GQ's 2012 Movie Star of the Year! Can we say encore?

Tatum might have scored this year's "Sexiest Man Alive", but I can count off plenty of CW men who are quite eligible for 2013! Which CW man do you think is worthy to claim People's future "Sexiest Man Alive"?
