Maxim is celebrating the 10th anniversary of what has come to be known as the "it list" of Hollywood heat.
Models, athletes, hard-working moms, reality show stars and a First Lady are all included in Maxim’s 2009 Hot 100.
And after sifting through thousands and thousands of photographs (tough work, but someone's gotta do it) the editors of Maxim have chosen "House" star Olivia Wilde as this year's big winner.
“Olivia Wilde has been the sexiest woman on television since she heated up 'The OC' five years ago," said Maxim editor Joe Levy. "She's smart, she's beautiful, and she has dual citizenship in the US and Ireland — what more can a man ask for?"
Check out Maxim's Top 5 right here, and see if any of your faves made it to the top of their list.
