In a BuzzFeed ranking of hottest TV anchors around the globe, Action News weatherman Adam Joseph came in second.
But recently, he gained one more honor: Last week, BuzzFeed named him the second-hottest TV anchor in the world.
BuzzFeed made the list after asking its “BuzzFeed Community” members to submit nominations (in a post inexplicably slugged “local-news-hotties-yas-kween”). Those community members made their submissions, and the site ranked them based on what we can only imagine was a rigorous, scientific process including a proper measurement of the symmetry of facial features.
Or maybe BuzzFeed just ranked these anchors willy-nilly. Whatever.
According to the site, what makes Adam Joseph hot is this: “In 2013, he ran seven triathlons.” I’m guessing Joseph actually completed all three portions of the triathlon, but maybe he just did the running part.
“Not sure I believe it, and not sure if I should be flattered or just laugh at this,” Joseph wrote on his Facebook page about the No. 2 ranking. “But definitely a fun read for you ladies (and some men). You’ll recognize some other familiar faces too.”
Mike Woods of Fox 5 in New York City was the only TV anchor ranked ahead of Joseph. A quick poll around the Philadelphia magazine office has settled it: Adam Joseph was robbed! He should’ve been first.
