Blake Shelton named People's 2017 'Sexiest Man Alive'

Rumors started swirling prior to the start of the Playoffs week on The Voice: Coach Blake Shelton was expected to grace the cover of the magazine's annual issue when it hits newsstands on November 15, bearing its ultimate male honor of "Sexiest Man Alive".

The news was revealed on The Voice on Tuesday (November 14) when Blake surprised Adam by showing him a giant version of the cover on a wall on the Universal lot.

Blake Shelton performs onstage with his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. "If I can be sexy for a year, I'm taking it!'"

He is most excited to throw the award in fellow "The Voice" coach Adam Levine's face.

"She goes, 'Listen to me, you're going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don't take this gift and just live in the moment, '" he said.

"That y'all must be running out of people", he tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story.

"I am proud of you buddy, because I'm only friends with other SMAs", Adam joked.

Shelton's latest album, "Texoma Shore", hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums this week. "I think to describe myself as a child, one word comes to mind".

"It could be 2 o'clock in the afternoon before I eat and then I realize I'm starving, so then it's a bag of Cheetos", he says.

However, the best part about the new title? "I was just amazed and stunned and it nearly seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that's cool", Levine said of taking home the honor back in 2013. The magazine named the Pearson men of NBC's "This is Us" as sexiest cast: Sterling K. Brown, who plays Randall; Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack; and Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin.
