Is it hot in here? Or is it just Chicago Fire stars Taylor Kinney and Joe Minoso burning up in People's Sexiest Man Alive 2022 issue? Kinney and Minoso were honored by the magazine this year and sat down to chat about their respect for firefighting and their unique tips for staying fit through 11 seasons of the hit NBC series. What's the secret behind their success? More McDonald's than you might suspect. 

How to Watch

Watch Chicago Fire Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

"I don't know how this guy rocks this body for 10 years the way he does and downs as many Big Macs as he does," Minoso revealed about his Kinney. "That is a testament! It's like he's like a Greek god, it's insane." And with just a brief look at the People shoot, that becomes immediately apparent. (Click here to see their smokin' pics.)

Kinney is a known fan of McDonald's, going as far as grabbing a few Big Macs in bulk for Minoso on his birthday. Because who wouldn't want Kenney showing up to their birthday party with a bag of burgers?

"Taylor has now gone out of his way to buy me as many Big Macs on my birthday as how old I am. Forty-four Big Macs showed up in my trailer," Minoso teased. "I don't know how I'm going to stay sexy if I just keep getting Big Macs from Taylor."

"I've been doing this [buying Big Macs on birthdays] for two years, and it's like family. We're a surrogate family, and Joe's birthday falls right in the perfect spot for Big Macs for some reason," Kinney explains. "It just hits the spot." Relatable!

"There's something about fall and Big Macs," Minoso concluded, making complete sense in some strange way. While Kinney's secret to success remains a secret, Minoso credits cardio workouts for landing a spot on People's coveted list. And he's ready to dance about that.

"I'm a big fan of Zumba," says Minoso. "I do a lot of cardio work with Zumba."
