Adam Levine’s 2013 honor from People caused one person to simply respond, ‘Not. Even. Close.’

Adam Levine has garnered the coveted title of People magazine's 2013 "Sexiest Man Alive." But for some, the news came as a bit of a shock and roused suggestions that other men are more fitting for the honor.
"So sorry. Nothing sexy about a man-o-rexic, serial model-dater," Angela Olsen posted on Facebook. "Oh, did I mention his nasal, whiny voice? He is the #Antisexy."
Offering alternate suggestions like "Man of Steel's" Henry Cavill, Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling, many folks weren't too keen on Levine ranking No. 1.
"Got it wrong, wrong, wrong," responder "Controversy" voiced in dismay.
Channing Tatum is among the magazine’s most recent choices.

The 34-year-old Maroon 5 frontman was rumored to be up for the title, which George Clooney held twice in 1997 and again in 2006, for days before Carson Daly finally confirmed the speculation live during NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night.
One immediate reaction to the news was from the show’s coach Blake Shelton, who said, “I want you to know that I think you're beautiful for what's on the inside." 
Levine and Shelton then embraced before all four coaches including, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, shared a group hug.
But the feedback hasn't all been so kumbaya. In fact, a large majority of responders have reacted with bewilderment as to how Levine was able to swing the mag's top votes.

"Who votes in these surveys? Blind people?" commenter “NorthStar” included. 
Still, a reaction from "JoJo10" stated Levine is "obsessed with Victoria's Secret Angels and secretly wants to be one."
"If scrawny body, giraffe-necked, 2-day stubble guys with hair growth creeping down their necks are 'in,' then yes, I can see why People chose this guy," one critic, Robin Long, stated.
Regardless of public reaction, "The Voice" coach can take a moment to bask in the glory of being added to a list that includes Johnny Depp, Denzel Washington, Brad Pitt and most recently Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum.
Some don’t think Levine measures up to legendary hot men like Denzel Washington.

However, critics has every right to voice its opinion on the matter, as the title of "Sexiest Man Alive" holds some weight. But not all the responses have been from naysayers.
"People you got it soooo right this year!!!" fan @JennLovesM5 tweeted.
"I'm not sure I want to know anyone who is not ok with this choice," @ShoshEAK wrote on Twitter.
In keeping it real, the backlash seems to overwhelm the positivity from the news that Levine nabbed the top spot.
Tracii McGregor put it quite simple on Facebook, "Not. Even. Close.
