The Hottest Heads of State

Malcolm Turnbull's honeymoon run as Australia's new Prime Minister has come to an end, with the first real bit of bad news for him personally -- he is no longer in the top ten hottest world leaders.

Upon his ascension to the Liberal party leadership, Turnbull was installed at #10 on a list compiled by a website called Hottest Heads of State. Its title is pretty clear -- it ranks the leaders of each country in the world, according to hotness. From North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-Un at #200, to King of Bhutan Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck at #1, each world leader is there and Turnbull instantly cracked the top 10 when he took power.

Just like his current poll numbers, Turnbull has quickly managed to achieve lofty heights his predecessor Tony Abbott never could. Our former PM peaked at just #43 on the list, a whopping 33 hot ranks behind the Silver Fox's rating.


But thanks to the election of a plucky Canadian named Justin Trudeau to the post of prime minister, Turnbull has been knocked down a peg and out of the top echelon of hotness.

Following yesterday's election win, Trudeau was immediately parachuted in at #3 on the hotness list, just below Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto but nudging ahead of Spanish king Felipe VI.

That means everyone below also got a bump down, landing Turnbull at #11.


In another blow for Turnbull, they even spelled his name wrong.

The satirists behind the 'Hottest Heads of State' joke it is "a scientific and unbiased ranking of world leaders in order of hotness".

"As most people except for you realise, hotness is a subjective quality. That said, if you make a convincing enough argument in our “comments” section, we will adjust the rankings," the website states.

"By ranking the world’s leaders by looks, we hope to heighten voter awareness of this problem and shame the citizens of countries with unattractive leaders into rising up and staging coups or something."
