It’s that day. That one day a year The Hill publishes its “50 Most Beautiful” list, and you can’t help but laugh, just a bit.
The 11th annual list recognizes the Beltway’s “best-looking,” relevant to the audience. So not necessarily all of the actually hot people you see around town, but the “most beautiful” members of Congress, Congressional staffers, campaign aides, lobbyists, other Capitol Hill personnel and executive branch employees.
Washington beautiful is tricky. It’s a far cry from “beautiful” as portrayed on DC-based television programs like “House of Cards” and “Scandal.” That said, this year’s list does include many who would catch your eye in Washington and elsewhere, along with several who might not even do so here in DC.
This year’s list was selected from nearly 400 entries, includes 26 women and 24 men; 22 Democrats, 15 Republicans, and 13 other/undisclosed party affiliations; 17 House staffers, 7 Senate staffers, 5 Representatives, 5 White House staffers, 5 lobbyists, 5 members of the media, 2 Senators, 1 Cabinet official, and 3 others more than half of whom are in their 20s, and going all the way up to their 60s.
On the media beat, list include Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier, CNN’s S.E. Cupp, CBS News’ Nancy Cordes, NBC News’ Kristen Welker, and Al Jazeera America associate producer Simone Perez, all of which we agree are totes hot.
Check out the full list here, but a word of caution, don’t do so when eating…you might choke.
