"Hearing what the Top 99 vote is made of is the biggest compliment of all because it's not just about being 'hot' but about being a well-rounded woman," says 2010's No. 1 Most Desirable Woman, Emmanuelle Chriqui. "That's really empowering and is just a massive compliment to me – people recognize that I care about other things."

Last year's No. 1 Most Desirable Woman, Eva Mendes said, "I love AskMen.com and I love that they love me back. Thank you!! Xxx"

"The AskMen.com Top 99 list has been my annual ego boost time, and one that I want to savor while I can. Thank you guys!" comments Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos.

Emmanuelle Chriqui, who ranked No. 12 on 2009's list, wiped out previous favorites like Megan Fox, who dropped from No. 2 to No. 11 over the past year. Fox's plummet from the top 10 ranks may come as a surprise considering that most men's magazines couldn't get enough of the actress in 2009. However, her overexposure spawned a backlash that reached beyond her drop on the Top 99; several leading men's sites teamed up for "A Day Without Megan Fox" on August 4, 2009.

"It's refreshing to see a respected but relatively low-profile actress like Emmanuelle top the Top 99, while many of the tabloid regulars didn't even make it," comments James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com. "To me, this outcome really reflects what is unique about our annual list: that it is a real indicator of the kind of women that men want, rather than simply those ones that we are continuously exposed to."
