To level the playing field, Esquire magazine has launched the eighth annual Sexiest Woman Alive bracket, which seeds 64 of the hottest women in a single-elimination tournament for ultimate bragging rights, or as Esquire puts it: "The bracket hysteria is back: sixty-four women, six rounds, one readers'-choice champion, and not a drop of tiger blood."
The No. 1 seeds are as follows: Brooklyn Decker, Katy Perry, Mila Kunis and Sophia Vergara. Wife of Patriots quarterback/dancing machine Tom Brady, Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen, is a Cinderella story waiting to happen at the No. 12 seed, but she has her work cut out for her in a first-round matchup with South African model Candice Swanepoel.
The ladies are divided into four regions — Fashion, Music and Sports, Movies and Television — and voting closes Thursday, so be sure to click the first round "Fashion" matchup below to begin your bracket.
