Our picks for the sexiest women on television from 2008.


#50 Holly Madison, The Girls Next Door

“Come One Come All” How would you like to have one of these beauties to be your girlfriend? How about all three? These three Playboy Playmates were once Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends but now have spilt. Madison was Hugh’s #1 girl and moved into his bedroom at the manison while the others had their own rooms. Although they spilt the show must go on. There will be a season six of The Girls Next Door.SEE MORE: Holly Madison


#49 Adrienne Bailon, The Cheetah Girls

The only reason anyone knows the name Adrienne Bailon is because of her scandalous photos that were “leaked” online. It turns out she was behind the leak in order to boost her profile, and while we could pretend to be outraged, we still got to see those sexy photos, so all is forgiven. She’s on here not because of what she did on TV but what we saw.SEE MORE: Adrienne Bailon


#48 Bridget Marquardt, The Girls Next Door

This sexy blonde gained her fame by posing for Playboy. From there she became one of Hugh’s girlfriends. She was the second girlfriend behind Holly Madison. She also appeared in a number of films and television shows. This 35-year-old has all the right curves.SEE MORE: Bridget Marquardt


#47 Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactica

Who is she you might ask? Nobody knew who she was other than seeing her on covers of magazines. She made a name for herself on Battlestar Galactica. She might play Number Six on BSG, but to us, Helfer is a perfect 10. Her sleek and sexy moves are enough to drive any man wild, and we’d let her frak us any day of the week.SEE MORE: Tricia Helfer


#46 Kendra Wilkinson, The Girls Next Door

This sexy blonde haired blue eyed cutie made her name for herself on E!’s hit televison show The Girls Next Door. She’s just not about looks (actually for the most part, yes), but she played softball for six years. This 23-year-old was Hugh’s third girlfriend behind Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. She can be my girlfriend any day.SEE MORE: Kendra Wilkinson


#45 Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton’s My New BFF

Why she’s on here I don’t know. Maybe because we see her all over on television, magazines, internet and even on movies and videos. Or maybe it’s her style and the clothes she wears. She is also a wannabe singer and author of all things. Is there anything she can’t do?SEE MORE: Paris Hilton


#44 McKey Sullivan, America’s Next Top Model

Who is McKey? Nobody knew who she was until America’s Next Top Model. Her real name is Brittany Sullivan but Tyra Banks asked her to change her name and she chose McKey. This young sexy innocent girl has big things ahead of her in the modeling world, after recently winning America’s Next Top Model this past season. SEE MORE: McKey Sullivan


#43 Tila Tequila, A Shot at Love

This petite Vietnamese hottie has a bubbly personality where you just can’t stay away from both men and women. She erupted on the scene on the her hit MTV reality television show A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and A Shot at Love II with Tila Tequila. Don’t forget the skimpy outfits and bikinis she wears. She is also an author of a book she wrote guiding people to find love.SEE MORE: Tila Tequila


#42 Ivanka Trump, The Apprentice

When it comes to business, Ivanka Trump may have inherited her father’s smarts, but thankfully for all of us she took after her fashion-model mother in the looks department. When Ivanka dons a business suit, she not only looks stunning, she also knows what she’s doing. The nearly 6 foot tall blond bombshell is the best of all worlds–well traveled and educated, with a fierce sense for business and great taste in fashion. Brains and beauty…the sexiest combination of them all.SEE MORE: Ivanka Trump


#41 Jessica Kinni, Rock of Love

Compared to the rest of the plastic skanks on Rock of Love Season 2, Jessica Kinni looked downright angelically beautiful. This blond, soft-spoken beauty learned the hard way not to imbibe too much when television cameras were rolling, but redeemed herself with her charm and sweet nature. Despite having her degree in Physiological Science, Jessica spends most of her time now-a-days as a model. When she’s not posing for the camera, she loves mind-benders like sudoku and crossword puzzles. Smart and sexy? Jessica really is the whole package!SEE MORE: Jessica Kinni


#40 Ikki Twins, A Double Shot at Love

What’s hotter than blond identical twins? Bi-sexual blond identical twins! At least that’s what “the Ikki Twins” Rikki and Vikki are counting on. While it’s hard to tell Vikki and Rikki apart (even their dad has a hard time doing so), it’s not hard to see why they’re some of the sexiest women of 2008. They’re blond, tan, they wear matching skimpy outfits, and did we mention…TWINS!SEE MORE: Ikki Twins


#39 Heidi Montag, The Hills

We’re not asking her to sing or act, just stand there and look pretty. Also, the fact that she’s with Spencer Pratt, aka America’s Most Hated Douchebag, gives every man in the United States hope that they too can have Heidi, since she apparently has no standards. If it wasn’t for The Hills nobody would know who she was other than just another hot blonde but now she’s a famous hot blonde.SEE MORE: Heidi Montag

#38 Tyra Banks, America’s Next Top Model

She may not be a super-model or Victoria’s Secret angel anymore, but Tyra Banks is certainly still sexy. The talk-show host and reality TV mogul still fills out an evening gown in all the right places–with curves that could inspire any architect and legs that go on for miles. But Tyra will be the first person to tell you, her sexy isn’t about her picture perfect figure, it’s all about her eyes. Tyra is the queen of smiling and seducing with her eyes, and we’re still smitten with the former model 15 years after she first debuted on the catwalks of Paris.SEE MORE: Tyra Banks


#37 Sara Ramirez, Grey’s Anatomy

Sara Ramirez isn’t just sexy, she’s talented. This Julliard-trained, Tony-winning actress has added some much needed spice to Grey’s Anatomy as Orthopedic Surgeon Callie Torres. Whether she’s romping with Dr. McSteamy or exploring her sexuality with Dr. Hahh, Ramirez exudes confidence, humor, and beauty. In a world that worships stick-thin women, Ramirez represents the curvier side of sexy and has become a sex-symbol and role-model doing so.SEE MORE: Sara Ramirez


#36 Tina Fey, 30 Rock

There are few things sexier than a woman who can make you laugh. By that logic, Tina Fey is one of the sexiest women ever. She’s got the whole sexy-librarian look going with her thick rimmed glasses and cardigan sets. We also found out in ’08 that she fills out a power-suit nicely, ala Sarah Palin.SEE MORE: Tina Fey


#35 Teri Hatcher, Desperate Housewives

Hatcher may be a more mature woman, but she still has what it takes to make all the men crazy. On Desperate Housewives, she always seems to get the hottest guys, from the hunky plumber to the cute house painter. I guess this means we’ll need to learn a trade if we want a shot with her.SEE MORE: Teri Hatcher


#34 Yvonne Strahovski, Chuck

Australians seem to be genetically gifted, and this bombshell is no exception. She’s stunning from head to toe, and as a super spy, the fact that she can kick some major ass is a huge plus. Also, she had a fight scene with Nicole Richie that took place in a women’s locker room shower, a moment that may have been lifted directly from our dreams.SEE MORE: Yvonne Strahovski


#33 Mary-Louise Parker, Weeds

Parker gets better with age, and now in her 40s, she’s still sexier than most women half her age. What made 2008 such a great year for her sexiness was that Weeds finally gave male viewers something to get excited about in a series of sex scenes in which Parker showed off what God gave her. Thank you very much, Showtime.SEE MORE: Mary-Louise Parker


#32 Christina Applegate, Samantha Who?

Even if we were hit by a car and suffered a debilitating case of amnesia, we’d still remember that Christina Applegate is sexy. Getting her start on Married with Children, Applegate has grown into a brilliant comedic actress and an absolutely stunning woman.SEE MORE: Christina Applegate


#31 Katie Cassidy, Supernatural

How would you like to have Cassidy (Ruby on Supernatural) following you? This feisty blonde demon can also fight with the best of them with a demon killing knife and conventional martial arts. Watch out guys, you might not want to get too close.SEE MORE: Katie Cassidy


#30 Cobie Smulders, How I Met Your Mother

Robin drinks, smokes and loves hockey. She’s quite possibly the perfect woman, and Cobie Smulders is an actress who gets funnier and sexier with every season. We’re even willing to overlook the fact that she’s Canadian.SEE MORE: Cobie Smulders


#29 Paula Garces, The Shield

In the final season of the series, this sexy actress finally started coming into her own, standing up for herself and not being such a pushover. The dull police uniform wasn’t the most flattering outfit, but if we’re ever taken into custody, we’d gladly let Garces interrogate us for hours. Hopefully, we can see her doing other things in 2009.SEE MORE: Paula Garces


#28 AnnaLynne McCord, 90210

Everyone loves a bad girl and in TV in 2008, Annalynne McCord was it! Whether she was trying to seduce her mom’s new husband on Nip/Tuck or get some goody-goodies at Beverly Hill High in trouble, Annalynne proved that bad girls are still super hot. Annalynne’s embraced her character’s naughty side on the red-carpet in 2008, showing up to one event in skin-tight leather leggings and to another in nothing more than a silver bikini. We say, if you got it, flaunt it–and Annalynne definitely has it.SEE MORE: AnnaLynne McCord


#27 Katherine Heigl, Grey’s Anatomy

Being sick ain’t all that bad. Anybody would die to have a doctor like Dr. Stevens taking care of them. Heigl came on the scene in 1992 with her acting debut in the movie, That Night. Ever since then, she has been in several movies and advertising campaigns. She got her big break with her role on the hit ABC TV show Grey’s Anatomy. She’s married to singer Josh Kelly.SEE MORE: Katherine Heigl


#26 Lauren Conrad, The Hills

Just like her co-star Heidi Montag, she got her big break on the MTV reality series Laguna Beach: The Real O.C. and then The Hills. However, with L.C. she didn’t marry a Douchebag. Instead, she wanted to start off her professional career right by interning for Teen Vogue Magazine and also having her own fashion line. While Heidi is moving down, Conrad is moving up.SEE MORE: Lauren Conrad

#25 Summer Glau, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

Is there anything sexier than a cute woman who could kill you? As a ruthless robotic killing machine, Summer Glau’s icy exterior leaves us boiling inside every week. Don’t forget she also loves animals so if you have a dog you’re halfway in.SEE MORE: Summer Glau


#24 Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl

Blondes may have more fun, but on Gossip Girl, it’s the brunette who has all the fun. Meester is absolutely enticing as the manipulative Blair Waldorf, and though she only has eyes for Chuck Bass, we’d be all too willing to let her use us as her sexual plaything in one of her devious schemes. Even though she’s only 22, she has been in many TV shows like Surface, Entourage, CSI: Miami, 24 just to name a few. Meester is definitely going to be on the rise in 2009.SEE MORE: Leighton Meester


#23 Brooke Burke, Dancing With The Stars

Who said age mattered? Don’t say that to this season’s champion on Dancing with the Stars. She still has it in her along with her good looks and dancing skills. She’s also been in several magazines including Playboy, Maxim, Stuff and FHM.SEE MORE: Broke Burke


#22 Blake Lively, Gossip Girl

Few of our sexiest women have had a year as big as Blake Lively. In just over a year’s time, Blake has gone from a little-known actress to a household name with her starring role on Gossip Girl and her adventurous red-carpet outfits. She’s proof that the All-American girl next door look, with wide smile and enviable long-blond locks–is still as sexy as ever.SEE MORE: Blake Lively


#21 Anna Friel, Pushing Daisies

There’s something special about this girl-next-door. She’s plucky and sassy, the kind of girl you could just hang out with, but at the same time, she’s pretty and oozing sexual charisma. If we were the piemaker, we’d gladly disobey the rules and bring her back to life as well.SEE MORE: Anna Friel


#20 Kaley Cuoco, The Big Bang Theory

This 23-year-old has done a lot for her age. She started appearing in television commericals to modeling from the age of six and has appeared in many television shows and movies. She also started playing tennis when she was a child and later became a nationally-ranked amateur player. This sweetheart is ready for what 2009 is going to bring her. SEE MORE: Kaley Cuoco


#19 Kate Walsh, Private Practice

When she joined Grey’s Anatomy as Addison Montgomery, we wanted to hate Kate Walsh–but she was so damn sexy we just couldn’t. A natural red-head with a smile that could sell toothpaste to a toothless man, Kate proves that you don’t have to be a blond to be beautiful.SEE MORE: Kate Walsh


#18 Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisper

There are two reasons why Jennifer Love Hewitt is still one of the sexiest women on TV, and we’re not talking about her brains and personality. To be blunt, she has the absolute best cleavage on TV. If possible, we suggest taking Jefferson and Washington off of Mount Rushmore and replacing them with Hewitt’s fabulous breasts.SEE MORE: Jennifer Love Hewitt


#17 Bethany Joy Galeotti, One Tree Hill

This sexy 27-year-old plays an innocent sweet loving Haley James on One Tree Hill. She has it all with her good looks, brains, handsome husband and a very cute son. Don’t forget her best friend Lucas Scott, who later becomes her brother-in-law. She won several Teen Choice Awards for her role on One Tree Hill.SEE MORE: Bethany Joy Galeotti


#16 Kim Kardashian, Keeping Up With The Kardashians

This beauty has it all. From being best friends with Paris Hilton, to having a boutique with her sisters in Los Angeles, to having her own TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She has made several appearances on the television screen as well. We can go on and on about her. Wait, don’t forget about the ever popular sex tape with Ray J. Be on the look out for her in 2009 to see what she will get into next.SEE MORE: Kim Kardashian


#15 Minka Kelly, Friday Night Lights

In season 2, Minka Kelly was a sexy, born-again Christian on Friday Night Lights. Tim Riggins finally put a stop to that phase by winning her heart, leaving us incredibly jealous that we weren’t the ones tempting her away from God. She got her big break on the Friday Night Lights and hopefully we will see her more in 2009.SEE MORE: Minka Kelly


#14 DeAnna Pappas, The Bachelorette

I wish she was my realtor. You might have recognized her on the hit ABC show The Bachelorette. Even though she didn’t pick my fellow Washingtonian (Jason Mesnick) she is still in my Top 50 Sexiest Women of ’08. But good news all you single guys, she recently called off her engagement with Jesse Csincsak.SEE MORE: Deanna Pappas

Where has DeVitto been all this time? Even though she’s only 24, she didn’t start doing television until couple years ago with the hit drama One Tree Hill. She played a psychotic nanny who tried to kidnap a kid. Who wouldn’t love to have DeVitto as your nanny. SEE MORE: Torrey DeVitto

Good looking and a good dancer. Can you ask for more? Hough, a two season champ on Dancing with the Stars won the mirror ball trophy with Apolo Anton Ohno on the fourth season and Helio Castroneves on the fifth season. This cutie started dancing at a very young age. Her brother Derek, both parents and all four grandparents were dancers. I wonder where she got her dancing genes from? Can’t wait to see her in those outfits again.SEE MORE: Julianne Hough

#9 Sarah Chalke, Scrubs

If Scrubs isn’t enough to make you fall in love with the adorable Sarah Chalke, she pulled double duty in 2008 as Ted’s fiancee on How I Met Your Mother. Regardless of what show she’s on, Chalke has the talent and raw beauty to make any sitcom leading man swoon.SEE MORE: Sarah Chalke


#8 Eva Longoria Parker, Desperate Housewives

When Desperate Housewives jumped forward five years into the future, the show tried to make the ultra-hot Eva Longoria Parker look like a frumpy housewife beneath plenty of make-up and baggy clothes. To be honest, they’d need to do a hell of a lot more to make this woman anything less than absolutely sexy. Longoria Parker was #14 in the FHM “Sexiest Women in 2008”.SEE MORE: Eva Longoria Parker


#7 Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance

The hostess with the mostest, Deeley is one of TV’s most underrated reality hosts, and that fact that she’s drop dead gorgeous might have something to do with it. Viewers may not take pretty women seriously, but in terms of talent, she rivals Ryan Seacrest in terms of keeping her show moving at just the right speed.


#6 Hayden Panettiere, Heroes

We’ll gladly save this cheerleader any day. Panettiere started modeling when she was four months old and started doing appearing in commercials at 11 months. This year, everyone’s favorite cheerleader grew up and took on more responsibilities, and in the promise, she blossomed into one hot young lady. The sky is the limit for this hottie.SEE MORE: Hayden Panettiere


#5 Olivia Wilde, House

As the enigmatic 13, Olivia Wilde added great mystery and a dash of sexiness to House. The bisexual doctor is certainly one of our favorites, and it’s impossible for us to forget the very memorable and very titillating lesbian sex scene she had in an episode earlier this season.SEE MORE: Olivia Wilde


#4 Sophia Bush, One Tree Hill

This hottie has the luxury to date anybody she wants. This sexy brunette was married to co-star Chad Michael Murray, who isn’t bad himself, to being rumored in relationships with Tony Romo to another co-star James Lafferty. Don’t forget she can also dance with the best of them with being the head cheerleader on the hit show One Tree Hill.SEE MORE: Sophia Bush
