Hottest Heads of State

If you thought President Barack Obama was the hottest world leader out there, think again, because the King of Bhutan is sooo dreamy. Even if you don't know much about Bhutan, one glance at the Hottest Heads of State blog and you'll know why the monarch of this tiny Himalayan kingdom came in at No. 3 on the blog's "scientific and unbiased ranking of world leaders in order of hotness."

Think of it as Tiger Beat's global-politics edition. Why get bogged down in a discussion about international diplomacy when you can stick to what you know — who's hot and who's not?

So how does America's sexiest statesman stack up? At No. 15, Obama is nowhere near as hot as Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, the world's No. 1 hottest leader. And he just barely clocked in as sexier than Russian heartthrob Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who failed to break into the top 10 despite many, many pleas for attention. But supporters of a peaceful, nuclear-free future take heart: North Korea's Dear Leader, Kim Jong Il, came in dead last, at a homely No. 172.

While the blog doesn't allow visitors to vote on its list, it does encourage feedback: "Like any good sham democracy, we will take your comments under advisement."

Wrote an enthusiastic commenter: "Obama needs to move up, [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad needs to move down, [Uruguayan President] Tabaré Vázquez definitely needs to move way, way down, [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu is undressing me with his eyes ... Maybe Netanyahu should move up."
