Maxim recently released their Hot 100 list and — no surprise — many of Hollywood’s sexiest bikini babes landed themselves a place on the chart.

Screen sirens like Olivia Munn and Jennifer Lawrence were voted by readers as this year’s top choice hotties, while 2011’s number one Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was dethroned by another leggy blonde.

Who reigned supreme for 2012? Read on to find out.

If you guessed Sports Illustrated model Bar Refaeli, you’re right!

The 26-year-old was elected as readers’ top babe, with Maxim’s very own editors claiming the Israeli beauty “puts the ‘promise’ in the Promised Land.”

However, Bar herself flabbergasted at this year’s list. In the magazine’s latest issue, which hits stands May 29, the swimsuit siren said she was, “shocked that among all these beautiful ladies, I’m number one.”
