Chace Crawford Is One Sexy Little Bachelor

As if there could be any doubt, People Magazine has made it official: Chace Crawford is the Hottest Bachelor in the world! Or at least in show-biz!

The Gossip Girl heartthrob and Footloose star-to-be beat out such unattached males as Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf and (oooh!) Robert Pattinson for the honors.

He also offered some tidbits about the joy of being Chace Crawford:

On his first kiss: “It was fifth grade. Her name was Kiley Smith and she was my best friend’s twin sister. It was one of those super-awkward things. We were at camp, on a lake, really picturesque—it’s kind of seared into memory! We’re still friends.”

On a perfect date: “All you need is a pool table, beer, an electric jukebox and good conversation. The day a girl beats me in a [drinking] game of Beirut is a good sign!”

On being single: “I’m not not looking for a girlfriend—but I’m not particularly looking for a girlfriend, either. I’m not knocking having a relationship; at the end of the day, you want to share with someone. But I just look at it as, I have the rest of my life to do that. I’m not in any rush.”

On dating Carrie Underwood: “I have nothing bad to say about that experience. It was awesome. I just didn’t know how to deal with it. I learned a ton about dating someone in that kind of spotlight. It was such a whirlwind, but no regrets.”
