Thanks to everyone who voted in our election for the Hottest Head of State (or government) of the Internet. I hope you all made little “I voted” stickers and wore them around, because that’s a fun way to make your friends and coworkers feel confused and ashamed.
THE WINNER: Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck
With over 690 votes (691 votes, to be exact), the King of Bhutan is officially the most attractive world leader in the world. (At least in as far as anything on this web site is “official.”)
So congratulations, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck! You can look forward to receiving our congratulatory gift basket in the mail, featuring a commemorative coupon book, a lifetime supply of Vladimir Putin-scented candles, and several hundred packing peanuts that are yours to keep!
FIRST RUNNER-UP: Justin Trudeau
Don’t feel bad, Canada! There’s no shame in second place. Except, I guess, for the shame of not winning.
SECOND RUNNER-UP: Enrique Peña Nieto
I was surprised that there was such a poor showing for the Mexican president, considering that he looks like a soap opera star. (And who knows—maybe someday he will BE a soap opera star! Because being the president of Mexico might not work out.)
