Taylor Hicks: America's Hottest Bachelor?
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.
