The 8 TV Actresses Stephen Colbert Managed to Top in the Maxim Hot 100

By 05.22.12

Each year, readers of Maxim magazine vote on the 100 Hottest Women of the Year. This year, Bar Rafeali topped the list, followed by Olivia Munn. It just goes to show you how mainstream the geek culture has become that the woman best known for co-hosting “Attack of the Show” was named the second hottest woman in America. Either that, or Maxim readers are just into women who let you fap to them while they eat shrimp. Not for nothing, but the readership is also broadening their definition of a woman to include men. How progressive! For the very first time in the publication’s history, a man made the list. After a massive write-in campaign, Stephen Colbert entered the top 100 at number 69.

Good for Colbert! Unfortunately, the blow to the self-esteem for these eight television actresses — all of whom placed below Colbert — must have been massive, although not as massive as seeing Lea Michelle 60 or 70 spots ahead of them. It’s one thing to be edged out by a satirical anchor on a fake news show, but it’s quite another to be taken down by the annoying twit from “Glee.”

Here are the 8 TV actresses Stephen Colbert beat. WARNING: Shameless slideshow of severely hot women. Sorry. Couldn’t be helped.

Kat Dennings — #97

Alexandra Breckenridge — #94

Stana Katic — #80
