Millions of FHM readers voted for the sexiest woman in the world.
12 months ago, FHM announced that Tulisa Contostavlos - of N-Dubz, X Factor and sex tape fame - had officially been voted the World’s Sexiest Woman by the readers.
Millions of you – took to the streets (or at least the internet) to voice your outrage. It was front-page news on every tabloid newspaper. So many people clicked on FHM.com that our server crashed three times. FHM received letters, emails, tweets and letter bombs denouncing the result. How could – in a world of 3,301,112,087 women – Tulisa possibly be the world’s hottest?
Our answer was simple: Democracy. 99% of those who threw their toys out of the pram did not cast a vote. If they had, things could have been very different.
This year, they were. Across three long months of polling FHM received more votes than ever before. And the result? The most competitive, and the most trouser-shatteringly sexy 100 Sexiest countdown of all time.
