Emmanuelle Chriqui, who ranked No. 12 on 2009's list, wiped out previous favorites like Megan Fox, who dropped from No. 2 to No. 11 over the past year. Fox's plummet from the top 10 ranks may come as a surprise considering that most men's magazines couldn't get enough of the actress in 2009. However, her overexposure spawned a backlash that reached beyond her drop on the Top 99; several leading men's sites teamed up for "A Day Without Megan Fox" on August 4, 2009.
"The AskMen.com Top 99 list has been my annual ego boost time, and one that I want to savor while I can. Thank you guys!" comments Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos.
"It's refreshing to see a respected but relatively low-profile actress like Emmanuelle top the Top 99, while many of the tabloid regulars didn't even make it," comments James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com. "To me, this outcome really reflects what is unique about our annual list: that it is a real indicator of the kind of women that men want, rather than simply those ones that we are continuously exposed to."
