His number is usually 10, but now Dan Carter is 11th on a list of the world's sexiest men.
American cable channel E! Entertainment included the All Blacks and Crusaders first five-eighths among its 25 Sexiest Men of the World.
The celebrity-obsessed station cast the net wide in choosing its list of hunks.
English footballer David Beckham is the best known of the 25 selected, with others including Philippines heartthrob Dingdong Dantes, French actor Gilles Marini, Greek singer Kostas Martakhs and Israeli actor Michael Lewis.
Carter has twice been voted the sexiest New Zealand male.
E! Entertainment is one of the most widely viewed networks, available to 88 million subscribers in the United States, and in 600 million homes internationally.
Carter, 26, is touring Britain and Ireland with the All Blacks.
