Glee has a plethora of male eye candy on the show and we can’t thank the writers enough for finding new and creative ways to rid the guys of their shirts. But which revealing scene has been the sexiest? Well, if we have to research this topic, we suppose we will.

So, in honor of the sexy, shirtless santa who tied up poor Kurt in Glee's  here are our picks for Glee’s five hottest shirtless scenes ever. May the best abs win.

5. McKinley’s guys pose for a shirtless calendar (Season 4, Episode 12: “Naked”)

Whose upper bodies were we happiest to see during this calendar shoot? Well, we had already seen Blaine (Darren Criss) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) shirtless (and we’ll get to them later), but how yummy were Jake (Jacob Artist) and Ryder (Blake Jenner)? Come to think of it, isn’t it about time for the guys to pose for a 2014 calendar? Just sayin’.

4. Brody exits the shower (Season 4, Episode 1: “The New Rachel”)

Okay, so we’re not big Brody (Dean Geyer) fans over here. But it’s hard to have a list like this and not include the devotee of doing sit-ups in the park. And when Brody gave Rachel (Lea Michele) an eyeful when they first met as he stepped out of their coed showers, we could see that those crunches had paid off. (Get it “paid off”? Because he’s a gigolo?)

3. Puck loses at strip poker (Season 3, Episode 19: “Prom-asaurus”)

We haven’t gotten to see much of Puck (Mark Salling) this season, and we’re not too happy about that. But his sexy scene at the hotel during Season 3’s prom as Becky (Lauren Jackson) beat the pants off him (so to speak) during a round of strip poker more than made up for it. We still owe you a big thank-you for that, Becky.

2. Sam strips during his NYC photoshoot (Season 5, Episode 6: “Movin' Out”)

Has anyone gotten shirtless as often as Sam? We think not, as the dude will take his clothes off at a moment’s notice, whether it’s in Rocky Horror, at a strip club, or for a tune like “Applause.” Is it any wonder that when he was taking those modeling shots in NYC, his shirt almost immediately came off. We think even Rachel Berry would agree: the whole thing was pretty hot. However, our favorite shirtless Sam scene might have been when he gave new meaning to the words “student body” with his campaign speech. He definitely would have gotten our vote.

1. Blaine’s angsty shower scene (Season 3, Episode 15: “Big Brother”)

And here it is: Glee’s best shirtless scene ever! As we said, we loved seeing Blaine with his Santa hat and candy cane (no, that’s not a euphemism) in “Naked,” but we’ve never seen the guy look better than during his angry shower scene in Season 3. Remember how ripped his back was? We’re gonna need a cold shower just thinking about it.
