Here’s an article about Ryk via “For the second year in a row SA swimming champ Ryk Neethling was voted to be the hottest celebrity on the planet in the heat Hot 100 poll. More than 250 000 votes were received in heat magazine’s annual reader-driven poll, making Neethling the first-ever star to take top honours two years in a row. In the six-year history of the poll, Neethling has always been one of the most popular South African celebrities, regularly featuring in the top 20, and being named as the most popular local in 2005 when Brad Pitt was the overall winner.”

What does he say about being the hottest celebrity on the planet? Here’s what he says according to “It’s crazy! I actually thought you guys [heat] were pulling my leg. It has to be a joke, right? I mean, I’ve been working so much and haven’t really been out and about this year.”
