Winning American Idol is nothing to sneeze at, sure, but it's nothing like being named to People magazine's Hottest Bachelor list!
David Cook made the cut this year, joining other luminaries like cover-boy Mario Lopez (check out Mario's pics from the magazine here), The Hills' Brody Jenner, Terrence Howard, Gerard Butler, the Gossip Girl guys, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, and tennis player James Blake.
Here's what David, who is rumored to be dating Season 2 Idol contestant Kimberly Caldwell, has to say about his flirting technique: ple, but the 25-year-old American Idol winner admits that his stage bravado doesn't always carry over into his personal life. "Looking a pretty woman in the eye and convincing her I'm worth taking a chance on is different. It takes a specific brand of guts, and it's not the kind I have."
Awwwww -- hottest bachelor, indeed!
