For us, though, the fact that some big-name beauties were absent from the Top 100 entirely was more of a shock.
Where were lads' mag favourites like Eliza Dushku, Jennifer Metcalfe, Hayden Panettiere and Jessica Biel? And surely no FHM poll is complete without Rachel Stevens.
Giselle Bundchen, Eva Mendes, Brooklyn Decker and Eva Longoria are also noticeably absent, a result made more baffling by the inclusion of breakfast TV favourite Kate Garraway at 97. Don't get us wrong, she definitely perks us up in the mornings - but is she really sexier than Anne Hathaway? She's Catwoman, for goodness sake.
We're also a bit surprised that with Tulisa, Cheryl Cole and The Voice's Jessie J at the top of the poll why other talent show types didn't make it. If Tulisa can be number one, why can't Kelly Rowland or her predecessor Dannii Minogue even crack into the Top 100?
Similarly, if Georgia Salpa made enough of an impact in her mute stint on Celebrity Big Brother to break the top five, we'd expect to see Natasha Giggs and Nicola McLean somewhere in the ranking. And FHM readers appear to have forgotten that Jessica-Jane Clement and Emily Scott were put on I'm A Celebrity for the sole purpose of getting male viewers hot under the collar.
It's also been decided that Binky is in fact the most attractive cast member of Made In Chelsea, and it's a big of a shock that only one girl from rival series TOWIE - Lucy Mecklenburgh at 67 - made into onto the list.
Other grumbles at Digital Spy HQ include the absence of Hannah Simone, the New Girl co-star of this year's no.17 Zooey Deschanel and the low positions of Karen Gillan, Christina Hendricks and Sofia Vergara. But what are your thoughts on the list?
Did your personal pin-up get unjustly bumped for another famous gal? Should Tulisa be number one? Leave your comments below!
