Blake Shelton is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2017, an honor that his The Voice co-star Adam Levine received four years ago. Once the cover featuring Shelton's profile was unveiled, Levine prided his former reign upon the country singer before revealing that he actually talks to the other Sexiest Men Alive from years prior all the time.
"As proud as I am and honored that you guys asked me, that's really the only thing I care about", he said.
Shelton cracked that his first reaction was "that y'all must be running out of people".
People will announce its Sexiest Man Alive on Tuesday ahead of the issue's debut November 15.More news: Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle Campaign

Shelton, whose latest album Texoma Shore reached No. 1 on this week's Billboard Top Country Albums, said his 6-foot 5-inch frame has had plenty of awkward moments. "I think he's hot".
The singer told People that while he tries to stay in shape and eat healthy, he does have a weakness for snacks such as jalapeno poppers and pickles, especially when he is home in Oklahoma.
