It's that time of year again! On 8 Nov., People crowned this year's Sexiest Man Alive, Patrick Dempsey. If you're wondering how the publication makes its choice, according to People's former Editor in Chief Dan Wakeford, the magazine makes its selection not only based on a celebrity's looks but also their overall demeanour.

"Being sexy is about being decent, intelligent, funny, and talented," Wakeford previously told CNN. He added that someone "who creates buzz" is a requirement and that sometimes who they're in a relationship with may give them bonus points.

As Dempsey joins this exclusive club, take a trip down memory lane by seeing all the past winners, including Chris Evans, Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, and more.
