Scott Brown is a Massachusetts State Senator and U.S. Senate candidate vying to replace the late Ted Kennedy in a special election taking place today.

The little-known politician made an amazing run, putting once-heavy favorite Martha Coakley on the hot seat as Massachusetts voters head to the polls.

Speaking of hot seats: Check out Scott Brown nude in Cosmopolitan, circa 1982!

Scott won the magazine's “America’s Sexiest Man” contest that year, back when he was a 22-year-old law student at Boston College. You can see why.

“Here at Cosmo we’ve had bachelors go on to be actors, models, and reality show stars, so we’re thrilled that one has gone on to become a politician,” says Kate White, Cosmopolitan editor in chief. Obviously we know how to pick ’em."

That they do ...

Scott Brown: Nakedly ambitious in politics. And sort of literally.

This particular bachelor has always had political ambitions and even admitted to being “a bit of a patriot” when he was interviewed nearly three decades ago.

Will he become the new U.S. Senator from Massachusetts today? Predicting the outcome based on spotty recent polling data is as hard as Brown's six pack.

If he prevails, you may be looking at the new face (and naked body) of the Republican party. Good looks and half a brain? Quite a combo. Sorry, Sarah Palin.

LESS SCANDALOUS SCOTT BROWN FUN FACT: His daughter, Ayla Brown, made the top 24 on Season Five of American Idol, and plays basketball for BC.
