Well, it’s official guys, the Maxim Hot 100 has been released for 2012. This is seriously big news, I mean, if you’re like a fifteen-year-old male. Personally, this list is always a little lulzy for me. First of all, it’s pretty much just an excuse for the editors of Maxim to get their brand name out and in the news -it’s free publicity, so maybe it’s actually kind of smart on their part. Hmm. Anyway, it’s an extremely vapid list that only counts “hotness” as the key factor. I think it says a lot about our society that there’s so much press coverage and so-called “hype” on an extremely subjective list based on how sexy a woman is. I mean, there was even a TV show on VH1 about it.
This year’s list was even a little more smarmy because they decided to put Amanda Knox (no. 92) on the list, as in the girl who was accused (and convicted, but it was overturned) of murdering her abroad roommate. I don’t know about everyone else, but I think that’s going a little too far. Yeah, she’s a very pretty girl, but come on, she was convicted of murder. It’s just tacky and attention-seeking.
