The 50 Hottest Women of American Idol

American Idol isn’t quite the cultural juggernaut it once was, especially with 2/3 of the original judging cast now replaced with sort of bizarre choices, but there’s something American Idol is still good for: extremely hot contestants. It’s a time worn strategy to placate guys roped into watching the show by their significant others, and we definitely think it’s the highlight of the show. We went through the casts from all ten seasons of American Idol to find the 50 hottest contestants of all time. Enjoy.
