Bar Refaeli Tops Maxim’s Hot 100 List, and Stephen Colbert Nabs No. 69

Forget Facebook's stock and the seemingly endless political horse race—some definitive in-depth reporting is out. Maxim magazine has released its annual Hot 100 list! 
 
At the top sits Bar Refaeli, the 26-year-old Israeli supermodel best known for stirring up controversy with semi-nude ads in Tel Aviv, starring as a Mossad-recruited honeypot in an Israeli film depicting the assassination of Hamas operatives, and briefly dating Leonardo DiCaprio.

Maxim also includes some of most prominent beauties of the last few years including Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis, Katy Perry, and Olivia Wilde. But the magazine has changed the game a bit in 2012. How? They allowed readers to weigh in—which may be the reason for No. 92: Amanda Knox, the student convicted of the murder of a female roommate in Italy, and then exonerated last October.

Reader input is almost sure to have influenced the first-ever appearance of a man on the list though. Who, you ask? Who else but Oracle of Truthiness Stephen Colbert, who nabbed No. 69. If that's not on The Colbert Report this week, we will be shocked.
