Beyonce took “Sexiest Mom” and Pretty Little Liars‘ Shay Mitchell, whose is of Filipino descent, was named in the “Sexiest TV Cast” category along with her three castmates–so technically she’s only 1/4 “sexy.”
The rest of the women on the list are predominantly blonde. Not even brunettes could catch a break.
