During The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the host took a rather long moment to eviscerate People magazine’s new choice of “Sexiest Man Alive,” Blake Shelton.
Colbert’s first reaction to the news was, “What? What? What! Really? Do I have that right? Did I miss something? Is Matthew McConaughey dead?”
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” There comes a time when one can no longer stand by quietly as our society chooses a dangerously unqualified man. So today, I break my silence to ask… Blake Shelton? Really?

Colbert continued to take shots at The Voice judge, saying, “No offense to Blake — he’s a solid seven, nothing to be ashamed of there. But sexiest man alive? More like the ‘Sexiest Man at the Home Depot’ — and that’s if it’s not a Saturday.”
Colbert refused to acknowledge the magazine’s choice, saying Shelton “may have won the sexiness electoral college, but not the sexy popular vote.”
In fact, Colbert was so harsh, he was worried showrunners would want to cut the rant before air. Colbert warned the producers off-camera that he’d “walk” if they cut the rant.
Colbert ended his rant by bragging about his own recognition as GQ magazine’s “Bad Hombre of the Year.”
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.
