Glee stars Lea Michele (Rachel) and Naya Rivera (Santana) are no strangers to the Maxim Hot 100 list, having appeared on the list for three years running. But will they make it onto the 2014 rendition? It's time for you to do your part!
Maxim has released its ballot for its annual list of the hottest ladies in TV/film, music, and modeling. As expected, Naya and Lea are on the ballot, meaning they both have a very solid shot at making it on the Hot 100 for a fourth straight year! The ballot won't completely determine the list's order, as the magazine's editors will still have final say.
But where will they land on the list? They both had their best showings on the list in 2012, when Lea was way up at number 14 — even beating Kristen Stewart! — while Naya was 27. They both slipped a bit last year, with Lea coming in at 39 and Naya dropping to 45. Their lower rankings might be a result of Glee's declining relevance in the pop-culture zeitgeist.
However, we have high hopes for them this year, as they have both raised their profiles significantly since last year. Lea is breaking into the music industry with her upcoming album, Louder, while Naya has also released a pop single, "Sorry," and had that high-profile engagement to rapper Big Sean in the fall.
And they aren't Glee's only presence on this year's ballot! We might have expected Dianna Agron (Quinn) to appear on the ballot, but she (gasp!) didn't. However, Becca Tobin (Kitty) did! So will there be three Glee stars on the Hot 100? We shall see! Translation: What are you waiting for? Go vote already, which you can do by clicking here!
Do you think all three ladies will make the list? And are you surprised that Dianna isn't on the ballot?
