  • 1. He's handsome. Seriously. Look at this guy. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto speaks during an interview with the Associated Press at the AP offices in Mexico City, Monday, April 23, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)

  • 2. Peña Nieto was <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/02/world/americas/mexico-pea-nieto-profile/index.html" target="_hplink">governor of Mexico state</a>, the country's most populous region, from 2005 to 2011, which catapulted him into the national spotlight. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto speaks during an interview with the Associated Press at the AP offices in Mexico City, Monday, April 23, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)

  • 3. No one would describe Peña Nieto as bookish. In December 2011, the presidential candidate had trouble recalling the names of books he'd read and their authors, according to the Associated Press. "I have read a number of books, starting with novels, that I particularly liked. I'd have a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/05/enrique-pena-nieto-books_n_1130160.html" target="_hplink">hard time</a> recalling the titles of the books," Peña Nieto said during a book fair in Guadalajara. He also said he'd read "parts of" the Bible and was influenced by the book as an adolescent. After more stumbling and incorrectly attributing "La Silla del Aguila" to Enrique Krauze, rather than to the country's most famous author, Carlos Fuentes, the handsome politician admitted, "The truth is that when I read books, the titles <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/05/enrique-pena-nieto-books_n_1130160.html" target="_hplink">don't really sink in</a>." Some critics then began calling EPN the "Justin Bieber of the PRI." <em>Enrique Pena Nieto, presidential candidate for the Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI), gives a thumbs up as he speaks to supporters at the party's headquarters in Mexico City, early Monday July 2, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)

  • 4. Cheating website AshleyMadison.com played up the politician's past <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/06/enrique-pena-nieto-cheating-website_n_1575533.html" target="_hplink">infidelities</a> during the Mexican campaign. Peña Nieto has acknowledged being unfaithful to his first wife, Monica Pretelini Saenz, and unflattering reports say that Peña Nieto fathered two children during his extramarital affairs. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/31/john-edwards-verdict_n_1561102.html" target="_hplink">John Edwards</a>, eat your heart out. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto flashes his election ink-stained thumbs after he cast his vote in the general election, accompanied by his wife Angelica Rivera and four of their six children: Paulina, left, Alejandro, second left, Regina, center, and Sofia, right, in Atlacomulco, Mexico, Sunday, July 1, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)

  • 5. Monica Pretelini Saenz, Peña Nieto's first wife and mother to three of his children, died in 2007 after suffering an <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/centralamericaandthecaribbean/mexico/9369458/Handsome-heir-to-repressive-legacy-is-Mexican-winner.html" target="_hplink">epileptic seizure</a>. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto smiles as he speaks to media members after meeting Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in Mexico City, Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

  • 6. Joining the party at age 18, Peña Nieto represents Mexico's <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/02/enrique-pena-nieto-mexico-president-candidate_n_1470581.html" target="_hplink">Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI)</a>, which ruled Mexico for 71 years, until rival National Action Party (PAN) candidate Vicente Fox was elected president in 2000. Most notable in his affiliation with PRI is Peña Nieto's membership in the "<a href="http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/07/02/mexico-election-penanieto-corr-idINL2E8HT1A020120702" target="_hplink">Grupo Atlacomulco</a>," a notoriously powerful clique within the political party. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto delivers a speech to supporters during a rally in Mexico City, Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011.</em> (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)

  • 7. He's in this ridiculously cheesy Christmas video with his wife. In the video EPN says he plans to be the best man he can be in the upcoming year, among other well-recited lines. Peña Nieto is married to <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/02/world/americas/mexico-pea-nieto-profile/index.html" target="_hplink">Angelica Rivera</a>, a Mexican telenova actress known for her role as a tequila maker in "Destilando Amor," or "Distilling Love" in Spanish. She's called "<a href="http://nbclatino.com/2012/07/02/meet-mexicos-new-president-enrique-pena-nieto/" target="_hplink">La Gaviota</a>," Spanish for "the seagull," after her soap opera character's name.

  • 8. The popular "<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/30/yosoy132-mexican-youth-gr_n_1637689.html" target="_hplink">YoSoy132</a>" movement sprung up in direct opposition of Peña Nieto, almost by accident. During an appearance at Mexico City's Ibero University, a mob of students protested the PRI candidate, shouting, "La Ibero doesn't love you!" The next day, media outlets portrayed the appearance as a success, and a university professor said the demonstrators weren't students, but paid thugs. In response, 131 students uploaded videos to YouTube, identifying themselves as protesters. From there, the movement went viral, giving birth to "YoSoy132", which translates to "I am the 132nd," with movement supporters claiming to be the next member. <em>A supporter of the "I am 132" movement holds up a candle during a march in silence with torches and candles in Mexico City, Saturday, June 30, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Christian Palma)

  • 9. Rebecca Black, known for her mind-numbingly popular YouTube hit, "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kfVsfOSbJY0" target="_hplink">Friday</a>," knew exactly which seat to take in the Mexican presidential elections. "Peña Nieto is going to do a <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/30/rebecca-black-endorses-me_n_1556881.html" target="_hplink">fantastic job</a>," the tween singer said. <em>In this April 15, 2011, photo, teen pop singer Rebecca Black poses for a portrait in Los Angeles.</em> (AP)

  • 10. As president, Peña Nieto has promised to retool the Mexican government's war on drugs; rather than focusing on taking down leaders of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/25/enrique-pena-nieto-mexico_n_1546772.html" target="_hplink">narco-trafficking cartels</a>, as the Calderón administration has, the president-elect and his team say they'll pour government resources into stationing police and troops in towns and cities plagued by homicide, kidnapping and extortion -- the crimes they claim affect the most Mexican citizens. "What Calderon has been doing is just targeting a few main cartels and splitting them up and what you have is chaos," said one spokesman. <em>Enrique Pena Nieto greets supporters at his party's headquarters in Mexico City, early Monday, July 2, 2012.</em> (AP Photo/Alexandre Meneghini)
