It seems that those with an eye to planting malware on your digital soul and viruses in your digital pores are choosing most to use Kimmel's name as bait.
McAfee warns: "When you search for videos and downloads of Jimmy Kimmel, you've got a 1 in 5 chance to click on a page that tests positive for viruses and other malware."
Kimmel works hard at making his show a viral presence. He concocts various ruses to make people believe that random pieces of plastic are, in fact, brand new Apple products. Now his name is at the heart of a ruse.
Runner-up on the list was, quite oddly, DJ and producer Armin Van Buuren. Ciara slips in at No. 3 and No. 5 is Bruce Springsteen.
Blake Shelton, Jon Bon Jovi and Chelsea Handler are also in the Top 10. Jimmy Fallon will surely shed a tear that his name was nowhere to be found.
On his show last night, Kimmel was positively crowing about his marvelous achievement. He said: "Who would have guessed that a boy who used to carry a briefcase to junior high and play the clarinet would become the most dangerous person?"
He added: "It's an honor just to be nominated, but to win this thing...."
Given that Brad Pitt is the only other male to have topped this chart since its inception, Kimmel admitted that his win is "the price of being sexy, I guess."
Last year's winner was Lily Collins. However, Kimmel has form. In 2012, he was the only male to appear in the Top 20 (Emma Watson was the winner).
