Every year, we get a new wave of hotties who come out of nowhere and dominate our computer screens with their steamy pictures. This year, we had plenty of new applicants for the new "it" girl, especially when past babes come crashing down (see: Britney Spears). Luckily for you, we've selected the top 5 so you can spend less time searching and more time gawking.
5. Laura Vandervoort from Smallville
If you’re gonna cast someone as Supergirl, they’d damn well better be jaw-droppingly hot. Laura Vandervoort does not disappoint. When Otto Binder and Al Plastino first dreamed up the admittedly unimaginative character of Supergirl, they probably had somebody like Vandervoort in mind: she’s a blonde beauty with a definite “girl next door” cheerleader-esque quality, except this time “next door” just happens to mean “Krypton” and therefore means she could kick your ass eight ways from Sunday if you tried anything. Cute, pretty, but with the ability to rip a man’s testicles off with her first two fingers: that is the essence of Supergirl, and therefore the essence of Ms. Vandervoort.
4. Kayleigh Pearson of British busty fame
Coming in as the new Nuts magazine girl, Kayleigh had big shoes -- or should I say, big bras -- to fill. With past babes like Lucy Pinder and Michelle Marsh laying the Nuts legacy down, Miss Pearson needed to bring her A game; well, needless to say, she brought it and then some. Not only did she increase her bust size (from B to DD), she showed herself to be an excellent gymnast -- a huge rack and the ability to put her legs behind her head? Checkmate, Lucy Pinder. Checkmate.
3. Miranda Kerr from Victoria's Secret
When Victoria's Secret let Gisele Bundchen go, people weren't sure if they were going to be able to pull yet another jaw-dropping super model out of nowhere. Well, I don't know how they did it, but Miranda Kerr fills the hole left by Miss Bundchen’s absence pretty damned well. Combining the mystique of Adriana Lima with the class of her predecessor, Kerr channels a universal attractiveness that even Bundchen couldn’t quite achieve. She appears classy, but sexy; mysterious, but charming – in other words, pretty much everything a lingerie model should be.
2. Michelle Ryan from The Bionic Woman
In heated competition with Rose Byrne and Kelly MacDonald for the “Hottest European Chick Who Can Fake a Flawless American Accent” award, Michelle Ryan kicked ass and took names for eight episodes this year in the Bionic Woman update. As Laura Vandervoort was to the all-American cheerleader door type, Michelle Ryan is to the dignified, mature, cold-but-beautiful English woman. As mentioned earlier, however, you’d never know she was English from watching The Bionic Woman – I’m not sure why chicks from the UK faking US accents is so damnably alluring, but it most assuredly is.
1. Megan Fox
Everyone knew Megan Fox would have to be on this list. Seemingly coming from out of nowhere, Fox hasn’t actually done that much this year, yet her strength as a new wave hottie is undeniable. Hell, even my 67 year old grandmother called her hot – something about Fox’s looks transcends age, gender and sexual orientation. We already know she’s got one of the best “do me” faces in showbiz, but one literally cannot understate the woman’s attractiveness; in a film full of explosions, car chases, and transforming goddamned robots, she was still the most memorable (and visually spectacular) thing in it.
