Cheers and jeers and the loss of credibility of the “Maxim Hot 100″

As a photographer, I spend a lot of my time working with models and entertainers seeking headshots for auditions and such. That being the case, when I have the time, I enjoy viewing other people’s work and what it is that they may perceive as beauty.

For several years, I’ve taken an interest in the “Maxim Hot 100″ for just this reason. And of course, it has a little something to do with being a hot-blooded young man as well.

Anyway, here’s my synopsis on this year’s installment of the “Maxim Hot 100.”

Cheers to Maxim for possibly unexpectedly including:

#99. Poppy Montgomery

#87 Paulina Gretzky

#80 Stana Katic

#73 Abby Elliot

#66 Alex Morgan

#56 Lily Collins

#41 Zoe Deschanel

Jeers for Maxim for the decision to add:

#97 Kat Dennings

#85 Lois Griffin

#70 Nicki Minaj

#69 Stephen Colbert

My personal alterations:

Taylor Swift, who sits as #26, should be among the top 10. And not including Carrie Underwood at all is a major snub.

Overall, the list was pretty good this year but sadly, two of the top 100 have seemed to continue the downward spiral that the “Hot 100” has been in for a few years now. Including a cartoon character (Lois Griffin) and especially an average-at –best looking male (Stephen Colbert) is absolutely ridiculous. If they were going to choose a guy, which is like men’s magazine blaspheme, they could have at least made it someone worthy of being called hot.
