Guess What John Key is Ranked on the Hottest Heads of State list

New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key was ranked 48th hottest leader in the world in the online Hottest Heads of State list. He’s in the top 25% on the list. On More FM, Mr Key said, “I can’t help being eye candy. It’s just one of those things. It’s the way it goes.”

When asked if he was disappointed Russian President Vladimir Putin was ranked ahead of him, Mr Key said: “There’s quite a few above me, to be fair.”

“I suppose it’s been everything from the European FTA talks to the Rugby World Cup that’s dominated my thinking.

“But now you turn my mind to it, I think there’s something like 50 below me. It’s quite startling.”

“I don’t want to be one of those scary people that have so much plastic surgery your face doesn’t move when you talk.”

So who’s number one on the hotties list? Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, King of Bhutan.
