People has released their annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, naming actor Chris Hemsworth, as 2014’s sexiest man, beating out Chris Pratt and Idris Elba. The announcement came Tuesday night after Hemsworth appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with his face and voice masked. Hemsworth was asked a series of questions before revealing himself.

Hemsworth is best known for his role as “Thor” in the Marvel films Thor and The Avengers. He is married to Spanish actress and model Elsa Pataky, with whom he has three children with.

My question is, who chooses these guys? I can think of a number of people, including Justin Timberlake and Chris Pratt, that are a lot sexier than Hemsworth. Pratt, who is most known for his role in Parks and Rec, lost a significant amount weight for his part as Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. He was even named GQ’s Man of the Year last year. There are a lot of questions as to why Hemsworth beat out Pratt.

I did my research and I never got a clear answer as you how People decides who the sexiest man is. Here is what I think: they sit and decide and whose image would sell the most magazines, and they look at who is currently trending. My only guess is that they believe Hemsworth is a hotter topic since the new Avengers movie is on its way.

According to The Wrap, Hemsworth was only chosen after Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake turned the honor down. People are denying these rumors, saying that Hemsworth was always their number one choice, but it does make one wonder.

I am not saying that Hemsworth is not gorgeous, he has a nice body and it is adorable how much of a family man he really is. But I still believe that the title should have gone to Pratt. I mean, did you see that interview with Pratt when he returned from filming Guardians of the Galaxy and the moment he had with his son? It was beautiful, amazing, and it makes me want to marry him, so move over Anna Faris.
