Sexiest Man Alive: Our 5 Divorced Picks

We recently read that Channing Tatum will likely be named People magazine's 2012 "Sexiest Man Alive" and we have to admit, we here at HuffPost Divorce were a little disappointed.

It's not that we think Tatum is undeserving of the "Sexiest Man Alive" crown (which, by the way, will be announced on Nov. 14); we love the "Magic Mike" star just as much as the next woman (and some gents). We were just kind of hoping that a divorced male celebrity might seal the nomination this time around. After all, the happily married Tatum is a sexy man who, in all likelihood, would want nothing to do with us -- come on, look at how lovingly he gazes at wife Jenna Dewan!

So what about all the studly single celebs out there, you ask? We've got them right here. Without further ado, we present you with HuffPost Divorce's inaugural Sexiest (Divorced) Man Alive list. Click through to see which swoon-worthy singles made the grade, and if your favorite isn't included, tweet us @HuffPostDivorce or let us know in the comments!
