Red-hot Neil Patrick Harris tops the AfterElton Hot 100 list for second year; Scott Evans in second place

By Greg Hernandez

hollywoodnews.com: AfterElton’s annual Hot 100 list is out and Neil Patrick Harris is once again at the head of the class.

Readers cast their votes in recent weeks and the results are a list comprised of male actors, musicians, athletes, and other prominent celebrities.

The AfterElton Hot 100 began in 2007 in response to Maxim’s Hot 100 and allows gay and bisexual men to pick the celebrities they believe to be the most attractive, regardless of sexual orientation.

This year’s Hot 100 features 26 openly gay or bisexual men including second-place Scott Evans as well as John Barrowman, Adam Lambert, Michael Urie, Cheyenne Jackson, Ricky Martin, Luke Macfarlane, Chris Colfer, Jonothan Groff, Chad Allen, Wilson Cruz, Gavin Greel, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, David Burtka, Nick Adams, Dustin Lance Black, Randy Harrison, Tom Ford, Gareth Thomas, Matthew Mitcham, Darryl Stephens, and Robert Gant.

Here is NPH’s reaction to his latest honor: “Holy Pete, a repeat!?! Thanks for the votes, gentlemen. I don’t quite know how to respond – it’s always fun to be on the top of a pile of hot dudes? No, umm – it IS a lot more enjoyable the second time you do it? No, no. How about – I’ve always fantasized having these 99 guys behind me? Truly, though, the fact that David and I both made this list means a lot. Mainly, it means that there will be some enthusiastic role playing tonight. So thanks for that.”

Anderson Cooper, the hard-working CNN anchor and 60 Minutes correspondent, doesn’t discuss his sexuality publicly but he did have this reaction to making the list: “I was very humbled and flattered to be number 11 on your list, until I was reminded I was number 9 on it two years ago. Is it my wattle, or the bags under my eyes? Despite my rapid decline, thank you very much. My trainer is also very thankful, because you have just guaranteed his employment for the coming year.”
