See our #1 picks from the past 11 years of Maxim's annual Hot 100¿the sexiest girls alive.

2000 Hot 100 #1:<br>Estella Warren-

We've developed an appreciation for synchronized swimming ever since the sport produced uber-model Estella. "Coming from a barely clothed childhood as a swimmer makes me really comfortable with my body," she says. Millions of men, introduced to Ella by her oh-so-revealing Perry Ellis ad campaign, are comfortable with it, too.

2001 Hot 100 #1:<br>Jessica Alba-

Buffy who? As Max, the genetically engineered bike messenger/cat burglar of Fox's Dark Angel, Jessica became the ass-kickingest babe in all of television land.

2002 Hot 100 #1:<br>Jennifer Garner-

After surviving the bombing of Pearly Harbor—not to mention a frenzy of fan adulation for her poignant role in Dude, Where's My Car?—Jennifer sought refuge as the incredibly sexy secret agent next door on Alias. As if playing Sydney Bristow didn't keep her busy enough, Jennifer also played sultry comic book assassin Elektra in the big-screen version of Daredevil.

2003 Hot 100 #1:<br>Christina Aguilera-

Leaving former co-Mousketeer Britney Spears in the dust, Xtina makes even the well-worn Madonna look, well, like a virgin. We're told the title of her 2002 album, Stripped, refers to the baring of her soul, but it was everything else she exposed that really got our attention.

Heat Factor:: She's an activist against global warming, yet he presence continues to send atmospheric temperatures soaring. Anyone else out there experiencing a heat-related swelling?

2004 Hot 100 #1:<br>Jessica Simpson-

First came Christian music, then the pop charts, and finally world domination. Jessica's hotness, girliness, and silliness make this minister's daughter our number one girl.

2005 Hot 100 #1:<br>Eva Longoria-

It takes a very special kind of hotness to get guys to not object to watching their girlfriends' TV shows, but Eva has single-handedly made Desperate Housewives the number one guilty viewing pleasure among men. She began her career on The Young and the Restless before landing the part of Gabrielle, TV's sexiest gold digger, whose philanthropy includes sleeping with the help. Eva, America's gardeners salute you.

2006 Hot 100 #1:<br>Eva Longoria-

While America failed to embrace her on Dragnet (shame on you, U.S.A.!), there's been no stopping Eva since Desperate Housewives hit the air—just check out her work in the White House political thriller The Sentinel. But this year this stunning spouse has done the impossible: repeat as the numero uno of the Hot 100. Her quest to three-peat begins now.

2007 Hot 100 #1:<br>Lindsay Lohan-

Tabloid bloodsuckers have been feasting on this Long Island native for years, but that's only because this unbelievably beautiful, untamable Golden Age throwback with a nonstop social calendar and acclaimed acting chops is Ann-Margret, Meryl Streep, and Sophia Loren rolled into one. Moving well beyond kid fodder like Herbie Fully Loaded, she also starred in the film about the murder of John Lennon, Chapter 27. She followed that up with the freaky thriller I Know Who Killed Me.

2008 Hot 100 #1:<br>Marisa Miller-

As Sports Illustrated’s 2008 Swimsuit Issue cover girl, Victoria’s Secret’s number one Angel (sorry, Gisele), and the crème de la crème of Maxim’s ninth annual Hot 100 list, Marisa Miller embodies the official return of the all-American supermodel. Not since Cindy Crawford ruled the catwalk has a pinup born and bred on U.S. soil so thoroughly captured the imagination of the American male. It must be strange living a life in which no man can formulate a coherent sentence in your presence. Oh, and if you really need one more reason to love her: Marisa humbly says of her career, “I get a kick out of it, but it would be stupid to let it go to my head. It’s modeling—I didn’t find the cure for cancer.”

2009 Hot 100 #1: <br>Olivia Wilde-

We may not know a McDreamy from a McNugget, but when it comes to TV doctors, there is only one who makes our body temperature rise. The pulse-quickening internist played by Olivia Wilde on House, M.D. is named Thirteen (which we presume is out of 10) and has a terminal illness that causes her to dabble in drugs and casual sex. (That's how we want to go!) But we were drooling over this N.Y.C. native long before she was injected into Fox's hit medical drama. Roles on small-screen faves The Black Donnellys and The O.C. introduced Olivia to the world, but it's her prehistoric part in Year One that put her on top of it. As the object of Cro-Magnon lust in the Judd Apatow-produced, Harold Ramis-directed, Jack Black-starring comedy, Olivia will surely knock moviegoers back to the Stone Age. Ugh!

2010 Hot 100 #1: Katy Perry-

And so it is written: Katy Perry is the hottest woman alive. Because she’s sexy. Because she’s talented. But more important, because she’s the best friend you suddenly realize you’ve loved your whole life. The rad chick who taught you how to skateboard and whistle and also looks unbelievable in a bikini. Katy was probably always a little cooler but didn’t hold that against you. She took you to the party. And, yeah, she kissed a girl. Money, looks, and luck might get you a date with a No. 4, 39, or 100. A number one? She dates you.
