Move over, Maxim – RateMyProfessors.com has its own hot list, and this year George Washington University’s Daniel Gutstein was voted hottest overall, and he has quite a bit to say about the honor:
When [I first learned of the award] I thought it was a friend of mine playing a joke, but I'm grateful for this distinction, and even more grateful for my wonderful, good-humored students, who have endured my goofy stories and hard-nosed teaching style over the years. While I'm sure that there are better looking professors out there, I think that my students probably credited my "body language" and my -- je ne sais quoi -- intangibles.
RateMyProfessors.com picked the top ten hottest according to the following methodology:
A professor who received a chili pepper is considered "hot." Chili peppers are awarded based on the sum of positive and negative (hot or not) ratings. For instance, if a professor receives 7 "hots" and 6 "nots" the hots will be counted as "+" and the "nots" as "-". The sum of these (7-6) equals 1, meaning the professor will receive a chili pepper. If the result had been negative, the professor would not receive a chili pepper. Professors are ranked by highest numerical value in this case. For instance a -3 result is higher than a -4.
