We asked you to name the hottest human being of 2007 and we have sampled more than half of your 800 responses. Our tally shows Jes narrowly edging out New York to become the year’s hottest, finest, cutest, sexiest person. Rock of Love winner Jes and our H.B.I.C. reality diva New York had approximately 150 votes each. But New York attracted dozens of harshly negative comments, and so we’ve crowned Jes our first-ever Hottie of the Year! Here is the list of candidates (in order of hotness, according to you) with some of your positive and negative comments.
“Jes all the way! She is so hot I?d consider switching teams!”
“She’s ugly and has rat nest hair.”
2. New York
“New York … the other girls are boring.”
“Are you kiding me New York is hot dang she is smokin hot and that’s real.”
“Looks like somebody hit her in the face with a shovel and just wouldn?t quit.”
“New York looks like a sick horse.”
“New York looks like a horse. Better yet, a horse crossed with a dog.”
“I would have picked NY if we were voting on best transvestite of the year but we?re not so I pick Kim!”
3. Kim Kardashian
“Kim is sexy as hell. No one above could compete with her … just look her body.”
“Armenians are the most beautiful people she’s freakin fine.”
“Kim sounds like she’s on helium.”
4. Chris Brown
“Boy u so sexy if u were a pie i would eat you.”
None, at least that we can find.
5. Vanessa Hudgens
“I think Vanessa is the hottest. She is so adorable and I think she has a head on her shoulders – although it is said that there are naked pic of her. Who doesn’t make mistakes?”
“Vanessa is so ugly and it looks like Fidel Castro is hiding down there.”

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and R & B releases her latest record today, Growing Pains. By all accounts, it’s a fine addition to her already impressive catalogue, featuring singles like “Work That,” which you might have seen on the ol’ iPod commercial. (Damn you, Mac! You and your cleverness will rue the day!) We couldn’t think of a more fitting pre-holiday hottie than Mary J. You all know her story: Discovered at a mall in 1988 covering Anita Baker’s “Rapture,” the songstress soon met Andre Harrell and was on her way superstardom. Diddy helmed the production end of her debut, and from there, the sky was the limit. She’s been nominated for a Grammy and will no doubt appear at the awards show, so until February, these photographs are just going to have to suffice.

The world would be a poorer place without Mariah Carey. The R&B princess works tirelessly for our collective amusement (today, for instance, sees the release of The Adventures of Mimi, the starlet’s concert DVD that features a performance from 2006). In 2005, she released The Emancipation of Mimi, the best-selling record of the year, and was named the sixth richest woman in entertainment, according to Forbes magazine, as of last January. The lady’s worth around $225 million, which, unless you’re Bill Gates and/or the Federal Reserve, is nothing to sneeze at. She’s currently at work on her next studio album, due out in the spring. But that’s not why we’ve included her here, today. No, the reason why she’s made our Hottie of the Week list is because she’s totally delectable. And that episode of Cribs, when she was on the StairMaster in lingerie? That’s been burned into our brains. Permanently.

Chris Brown Pics
Chris Brown is not just one of the many multi-talented, teenage triple threats taking Hollywood by storm with their dancing, singing and acting skills. He’s perhaps the most talented of all — the epitome of superstar — and with an adorable smile to boot. With a hit album under his belt that’s already sold 3 million copies worldwide and his sophomore record dropping this week, Chris has got a lot to be smiling about. But if listening to his No. 1 tracks isn’t enough, fans can always catch Chris in the new movie This Christmas, which comes out in a few weeks. It’s one thing to be crazy successful, but to do it all by the time you turn 18 — that’s just straight up hot.

American Idol winner Carrie Underwood is the 24-year-old pop-country singer with a mane of blond, blond hair and plenty of attitude. She has the honor of being the fastest-selling debut country artist in the entire history of everything, which should tell you a little something about how much down-home folks appreciate her musical sensibilities and pretty looks. But she’s not just for country and pop fans, either. Because she’s been a vegetarian since she was 13, she was named by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) as the “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian” in 2007. Victoria’s Secret called her this year’s “Sexiest Female Musician.” People magazine named her to their 50 most beautiful list. And her work visiting American troops in Iraq on USO tour has endeared her to practically everyone. What do you think? Sexiest do-gooder alive? Bono and Al Gore aren’t pretty enough for that award.

We’re in that weird waiting zone between finale and reunion, so it only makes sense that Rock of Love winner Jes be our hottie of the week. The pink-and-blonde-haired spitfire, who resembles no one so much as ’80s cartoon hero Jem, won one for the nice girls, beating out Lacey and the like for a shot at Bret Michaels’ heart. Speaking to VH1.com, Jes explained how she stayed true to herself: “I stuck to my morals from day one . . . . I?m not going to sit there and show affection to a man who?s showing affection to 20 other women. I wouldn?t do that in front of chicks to make them jealous. I don?t play that game in my life and I refuse to play that game on TV.” She also explained how she remained calm, even when Lacey threw her into the pool: “They portrayed that in my favor. I did freak out and the producers rushed outside: ‘Jes, do not hit her.’ I was screaming, ‘Get her the f*ck out of my face right now.’ But I got over that quickly. I don?t hold grudges.” We’re kind of impressed. Are you?

All Mya Photos
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Mya, the R&B songstress who’s collected more Moonmen than NASA and Jim Carrey combined. Her fourth studio album, Liberation, has been in the works since 2004, and finally has a release date later this fall, so expect to see a lot more of her as the weather turns colder. With guest spots from Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne, and the production and songwriting talents of such gents as Scott Storch and Brian Michael Cox, the album already sounds like a runaway success.
That’s exactly what you’d expect from Ms. Mya, who stormed the charts in the late ’90s. She sealed her place in pop-culture history with “Lady Marmalade” and its Moulin Rouge tie-in video, which featured Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya and Pink, each of whom was wearing frilly, lacy items of clothing people normally associate words like “boudoir” and “Paris.” Following that, she told us how “My Love Is Like . . . Wo,” and she signed a six-figure modeling contract. It’s easy to understand why. Check out these pics to see.

All Eve Photos
She used to be known as Eve of Destruction, but these days Eve’s in far chipper spirits. The former first lady of the Ruff Ryders is about to release her fourth album, Here I Am, which features Eve actually singing, plus the talents of Adam Levine, Shakira and Swizz Beatz, among many, many others. We can’t wait to see what the paw-printed princess has planned, but judging from “Tambourine” and the video for that song, we’re in for a Technicolor dream-world that’s rainbow colored, sexy and totally toned. Eve’s always been a force to be reckoned with. She’s a musician first, but also has had a fledgling clothing line (Fetish), a UPN sitcom (Eve) and numerous film appearances. She’s had her fair share of scandals, too: There was a sex-tape circulated around the Internet, and earlier this year, she was arrested for a DUI. While she was in prison, Sean Penn came to visit her, which sparked a flurry of rumors about their relationship, none of which appear to be true. What is true is that we can’t wait for Eve’s new album, and that she’s definitely a beauty. Check her out here, and don’t forget to tune in when she hosts the Vibe Awards on Wednesday, November 14. It’s going to be hottt.
