The man in our feature photo, Prince William has indeed been dubbed “World’s Sexiest Bald Man.” We don’t get it either.
According to the UK’s The Sun, researchers at the cosmetic surgical group Longevita found that the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge’s name and the keyword “sexy” came up in Google searches and articles 17.6 million times, beating out Mike Tyson who came in second place with 8.8 million searches. Jason Staham came at third with 7.4 million, 5.4 million for Pitbull, and a close 5.3 million for Michael Jordan, who completed the list’s top five bald men. Other honorable mentions included Floyd Mayweather, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Dwyane Johnson, and Vin Diesel — in that order.
After the announcement, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sounded off on Twitter, saying, “how in the cinnamon toast f— does this happen – when Larry David clearly has a pulse?!?! #demandingrecount”
Unmentioned actors Stanley Tucci and Criminal Minds Shemar Moore were some of the celebs snubbed by the search. Fans took to social media to air out their grievances as well:
I love that Stanley Tucci is trending because someone claimed Prince William was the sexiest bald man. pic.twitter.com/xImcjmnar9— Toffee (@T_MECE) March 27, 2021
How dare we all watch Stanley Tucci make cocktails for the last year and not name him sexiest bald man pic.twitter.com/IPDZJI48V4— Rachel Paige (@rachmeetsworld) March 27, 2021
Prince William is apparently the "sexiest bald man in the world". He's not even the sexiest prince, or the sexiest person called William, or the sexiest bald prince, or the sexiest bald William. pic.twitter.com/rF4DJTD109— Steve (@SteveStratford9) March 27, 2021
Even Stanley Tucci took part, posting on his Instagram a collage of bald rivals writing, “whose crown should wear this crown? So many wonderful choices.”
