Michael B. Jordan on being named People's Sexiest Man Alive: 'It's a cool title to have'
On Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2020 was announced. The late-night show has been revealing the winner for years, but this time Kimmel and crew thought they would make it a little more interesting by having the fans try and guess who won.
Kimmel brought the sexiest man out in a yellow chemical hazmat suit so that none of his features were distinguishable. After a series of guesses and clues, one fan was correct when she guessed Michael B. Jordan.

Even though Jordan has been an A-list celebrity for years and the recipient of many awards, he admitted that there is some added pressure that comes with the new moniker.
“I think the expectation now is a little unreasonable,” said Jordan. “But it's a cool title to have...They told me the news and it was a moment like, ‘S***, really? Me?’ ... But it was a cool moment.”
Based on the reaction from social media, People got it right.
