Carson Daly Had the Funniest Reaction to Being in People's Sexiest Man Alive Issue

The Voice Host made it into the fabled pages of the Sexiest Man Alive issue — but he's far more interested in meat he can eat.

By Elizabeth Logan

As the Host of The Voice since day 1, Carson Daly has seen his fair share of People's Sexiest Men: Coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and John Legend have all graced the cover of the magazine's fabled issue. But this year, it was Daly's turn. Sadly, not on the cover (that went to Patrick Dempsey), but inside the feature, which is close enough. And he took the honor with multiple grains of salt — which he then sprinkled on a ribeye steak.

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

"I’m equal parts appreciative & confused how I made it in @people #SexiestManAlive issue, but thank you!! Maybe they meant #SteakiestManAlive? 🧐🥩🥩 I’m honored!" Daly, who is also a co-Host on TODAY, wrote on Instagram. (For context: The picture People chose depicts Daly salting a steak with a blurb about his love of food and cooking. And in a video for People's issue, Daly shares his tips for making the best steak, a favorite meal in his household.) 

What's the Instagram version of a chair turn? Whatever it is, everyone's spinning on Daly's page over this news. He's received a ton of supportive comments, ranging from "Well deserved! You've been sexy since the '90s" to, "You are just an amazing person. Great dad, excellent TV personality, and also your support for mental health make you very 'sexy'. Enjoy the attention! Don’t question it. That is the anxiety talking!"

Daly has been open about his ongoing struggle with anxiety, helping to raise awareness and even revealing one of his coping mechanisms to USA Today: "On The Voice, when I'm live on Monday nights, most of the time, my right hand is in my right pocket, and I'm literally gripping onto the flesh of my thigh because I'm waiting for a high-panic moment to pass."

Carson Daly's wife, Siri Pinter

If you were hoping to score a date with this MVP steak chef, you're sadly out of luck. He married his wife, food blogger Siri Pinter, in 2015.

They share four adorable children who are especially close to Daly's bestie, Blake Shelton. Pinter wrote in an Instagram post about the cowboy, "He is gentle, hilarious, delights my kids, looks you in the eye and listens, loves with his whole heart, eats fried calamari with his whole belly, worships Gwen [Stefani], and is a true brother to my husband."
