With this new week comes a whole new calendar year and our first ever BABE OF THE YEAR. Yes, normally FTS works out a Babe of The Week every Thursday for your viewing pleasure. But since 2012 is upon us, I thought it would be a great chance to crown someone that really out-babed themselves in 2011. So without further ado, check out these lovely photos of our babe of the year:

Ryan Gosling
(Oh and we wrote a few words too, but we forgive you if you’re too busy drooling to notice.)

Ryan takes the title this year for his tremendous efforts on screen as well as the not so effort fueled Hey Girl memes and Sexiest Man Alive campaigns. Stare at those bedroom eyes and I have not doubt you’ll be saying “Bradly Who?”

Here is Gosling in Ides of March, where he still managed to look handsome next to the Ultimate in handsome, Mr. George Clooney. (see below)

In Crazy, Stupid Love, Ryan really outdid himself. We are with you Emma Stone, he does look photoshopped.

Drive gave us a Ryan Gosling character that only speaks when spoken to and has no name. No one was complaining.

Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling! spawned one of the best memes of 2011. Here’s our favorite ‘Hey Girl’ pics.

This was too funny not to include. Check our babe out in Funny or Die’s Christmas Edition of Drunk History 

And of course, Ryan is a lover not a fighter! Watch as Ryan breaks up a fight between strangers.

Was there anyone else more deserving this year?

We didn’t think so!

Babe of the Week is a feature on FTS where we pick some hot hottie that caught our eye to showcase a little about. For more information on the Babe of the Week feature you can read more about it hereAnd to view the past Babes, feel free to peruse here.
