Each year Esquire editors name their Sexiest Woman Alive in their November issue, which hits newsstands in mid-October. However, for the past couple years they host a March Madness style bracket tournament to see who the fans think should hold the title.

In 2010, Brooklyn Decker took the crown while Katrina Bowden reigned supreme last year. There were plenty of surprises in the annual tourney’s 2012 edition – like Taylor Kitsch (‘Friday Night Lights’, ‘John Carter’) advancing to the Elite 8, but considering her rabid following on Twitter, we’re not shocked Playboy Playmate and G4′s ‘Attack of the Show’ co-host Sara Jean Underwood was the last lady standing.

The men’s mag celebrated with a special “Me In My Place” shoot featuring the one they call “Bustice”. Try not to bust while the champion shows off her lounge-round-the-house-wear.
