With Nick Viall confirmed as The Bachelor and ready to capture the heart of a nation this winter, the question invariably becomes:

Is he the hottest Bachelor in ABC history?

Nick will star on Season 21, but will be the 20th Bachelor – Brad Womack got the nod twice (and came away empty-handed each time).

Obviously, hotness is subjective, and there will be plenty of fans less than thrilled about Nick, given his unique history on the franchise.

Still, he got TWO Bachelorettes to almost pick him, then won America, and producers, over on Bachelor in Paradise. That says a lot.

So take a look back at the below rankings of Bachelors then and now, and decide who the all-time hottest man to dole out the roses is.

Or was. Compare and decide now.
