American Idol. Even when it's over, it's never really over.

Silver-haired American Idol champion Taylor Hicks (the guy with the mixture of Ray Charles moves and Tourette's Syndrome), was named the No. 1 "Hottest Bachelor" by People Magazine today. Say whaaaat?

The 29-year-old Hicks outranked other familiar names like Matthew McConaughey, Nick Lachey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kenny Chesney, Jamie Foxx, Owen Wilson and even AI's host Ryan Seacrest.

Another AI contestant makes it a trifecta for the country's hottest singing contest: Doe-eyed Ace Young made the cut, too. What is it about this particular Fox show that makes America come back to the well for more?

Well, at least we can take heart that no one from Fox's other reality talent show, So You Think You Can Dance, made the cut.
