Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis, Bar Rafaeli ... and Stephen Colbert?

It's true - the late night comedy talk show host has been included in a Maxim magazine poll that asked readers to name the world's sexiest women, the Huffington Post reports.

His rating? No. 69 of course.

Colbert, the host of The Colbert Report, ended up on the list thanks to Maxim allowing readers to vote in its poll for the first time.


Of his inclusion, the magazine said: "Democracy isn't always pretty: Sometimes it's downright handsome. With a massive write-in vote campaign, the Colbert Nation proved they're not only loyal but also incredibly horny."

Colbert has a vocal fan base who have also had the comedian named as a presidential candidate, and won him naming rights on a treadmill on the International Space Station.

Reader's votes may also explain the poll's other odd inclusion of Amanda Knox at No. 92.

The poll was won by Sports Illustrated supermodel Bar Rafaeli.

Others in the top 10 included Olivia Munn, Katy Perry and Olivia Wilde.
