Watch: Michael B Jordan named Sexiest Man Alive

On Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 2020 People’s Sexiest Man Alive was announced. The late night show has been revealing the winner for years, but this time they thought they would make it a little more interesting by having the fans try and guess who won.

Kimmel brought the sexiest man out in a yellow chemical hazmat suit so that none of his features were distinguishable. After a series of guesses and clues, one fan was correct when she guessed Creed star Michael B. Jordan.

Even though Jordan has been an a-list celebrity for years and the recipient of many awards, he admitted that there is some added pressure that comes with the new moniker.

“I think the expectation now is a little unreasonable,” said Jordan. “But it's a cool title to have... They told me the news and it was a moment like, ‘S***, really? Me?’... But it was a cool moment.”

Based on the reaction from social media, People got it right.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights.
