There’s certainly no shortage of male (and female) hotties in the True Blood cast, but according to People magazine, one studly fella is a cut above the rest. The respected mag just named Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) their hottest bachelor of 2014, and we couldn’t agree more!

As hard as it may be to believe that a guy who looks like Joe is single, the 37-year-old actor admits he hasn’t found the right woman yet. Joe, who is part Sicilian, acknowledges his intense personality may not make him a good fit for some women. “I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you,” he explains.

Still the actor does believe in finding love, even if it’s not true love. “I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into 'like' and 'need.' Chris Rock told me that!,” he reasoned. And while Joe may be a bachelor at the moment, he knows the importance of having a special somebody by his side, noting, “I'm at my best when I have someone to wake up next to.”

Excuse us while we swoon, forever.

If you want to try your luck at being Joe’s leading lady, then we suggest you invest in a killer signature scent. “I'm big into smell," Joe said when asked about his favorite part of a woman. “It's funny I got cast as a werewolf. There's something about the smell on that part of a woman's neck where it meets the jaw, ahhhh! It's heaven.”

That may be your version of heaven, Joe, but ours is you. Shirtless. To each his own, right?!

True Blood Season 7 airs Sunday nights on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.
