On Saturday, the UK publication The Sun published a story claiming that Prince William is the "world's sexiest bald man" based on a survey conducted by Longevita, a cosmetics surgery company that provides hair transplants.
The Sun reported that the survey results were determined by analyzing "blogs, reports, and pages found in Google searches" with the word "sexy."
Based on the survey, The Sun wrote, the Duke of Cambridge's name was mentioned 17.6 million times. The article went on to name the other famous faces who took up the next nine spots in the survey's results.
After Prince William, Mike Tyson came in second place, followed by "Fast & Furious" star Jason Statham, rapper Pitbull, Michael Jordan, boxer Floyd Mayweather, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and actor Vin Diesel.
The report caught traction on Twitter, and at one point on Saturday, Prince William's name was trending on the platform, along with complaints that Stanley Tucci didn't make the cut.

The survey also caught the attention of "The Rock," who wrote in a tweet on Saturday: "How in the cinnamon toast f--- does this happen - when Larry David clearly has a pulse?!?! #demandingrecount."
Meanwhile, Tucci — who's captured people's hearts with his soothing bartending tutorials on Instagram and recently, his own food-centric CNN show, "Searching for Italy" — suggested a group of other stars who he thought would also fit into the category (including himself).
"Whose crown should wear this crown? So many wonderful choices," Tucci wrote on Instagram with a photo collage.

Tucci featured some of the same stars who were mentioned in The Sun's article, including Statham, Willis, and "The Rock." He suggested others, too, including LL Cool J, actor Mark Strong, Ryan Reynolds, actor Patrick Stewart, and Tilda Swinton.
Strong, in response to Tucci, wrote on Instagram that Prince William is "facing some pretty fierce competition from this lot."
