Maxim’s Hot 100: Margot Robbie No.1, Sam Kerr No.2

From politicians to sports stars, Australia’s most influential and accomplished women have beat out models to land surprising spots on this year’s Maxim Hot 100.

While the controversial annual ranking is unlikely to ruffle feathers with its top pick for 2023, Margot Robbie, a slew of lesser-known figures also secured a spot.

Matildas captain Sam Kerr, who captured the nation’s attention during the FIFA Women’s World Cup series, snagged the No.2 spot behind the Barbie lead.

Teammates Mackenzie Arnold, Caitlin Foord, Mary Fowler, Hayley Raso, Ellie Carpenter and Cortnee Vine all nagged the number 11-16 spots respectively.

Swimmers Kaylee McKeown and Ariarne Titmus, numbers seven and eight, rounded out the top 10 alongside the likes of podcaster Abbie Chatfield and Delta Goodrem.

The nation’s female political leaders were well represented, with Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, Linda Burney, Jacinta Allan, Lidia Thorpe and Penny Wong all on the list.

In the bottom two were Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and RBA governor Michelle Bullock, whose tough-love style hit many Australians hard this year.

TV news and radio personalities Jacki-O, Alison Langdom and Sarah Abo all made the list, followed by “The Real Housewives of Sydney”.

Campaigner and former Australian of the year Grace Tame came in at No.26, while comedian Kitty Flannagan (No.76) beat out model Bec Judd (No.87).

Other notable names to make the list include Sophie Monk (No.4) actresses Rose Byrne and Rebel Wilson (numbers 34, 35), Sonia Kruger (36), and Amanda Keller (37).

Actress Ruby Rose also came in at No.52, followed by singer Amy Shark, with TV hosts Erin Molan and Carrie Bickmore picking up numbers 69 and 71 respectively.
