With all of the excitement of the Oscars this past weekend, everybody nearly missed this week’s instance of Kate Upton taking off her shirt. Well, that’s why we’re here. To serve as a net that catches all good chunks of life blown across oblivion.

Upton stars in the latest Carl’s Jr. ad. These ads have become an institution, featuring an impossibly hot celebrity eating the diarrhea-inducing sandwiches in the most softcore way possible. Like pin up girls getting down on some fast food.

Critics of these ads feel these advertisements are in extremely bad taste as they reduce women into nothing more than props bent and manipulated for male entertainment. Props that we can now compare to one another and evaluate. And such, here are the five hottest Carl’s Jr ads ranked in order of hottest to most tame.

Kate Upton

Kate Upton deserves an award. All the awards actually. With her new Carl’s Jr ad she lifts the series out of a dark place where it had previously run a ground. Wearing this tiny polka dot dress, she bites into a spicy Carl’s Jr sandwich at the drive-inn. The resulting place causes her to writhe around and strip in the car‘s backseat. Not in a “Hey, we better call 9-1-1″ kind of way, but in a “Hey, I should be using my camera phone right now,” kind of way.

My only question though is, why would this girl have to take herself out on a date?

Watching this at the Internet Cafe will get you:

6 out of 6 craned necks.

‘Top Chef: Los Vegas’ Host Padma Lakshmi http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/top-chef-las-vegas-host-padma-lakshmi/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/top-chef-las-vegas-host-padma-lakshmi/#comments Wed, 19 Aug 2009 19:07:19 +0000 Defy Media The spiciest season yet of Top Chef premieres tonight on Bravo, and we can't wait to see what kind of foodie antics host Padma Lakshmi doles out in Sin City.  This could quite possibly be the season where a naked Quick Fire Challenge gets things all hot and sweaty in the kitchen.  Sure, it's unsanitary, but a nude Padma bossing those eager chefs around is too appealing of an idea to worry about E. coli. A word from Padma: "In India, we like healthier, more voluptuous types."Amen, sister.  You gotta have something to grab on to.  Check out a few more pics of Padma and all of her voluptuousness after the jump!

The spiciest season yet of Top Chef premieres tonight on Bravo, and we can’t wait to see what kind of foodie antics host Padma Lakshmi doles out in Sin City.  This could quite possibly be the season where a naked Quick Fire Challenge gets things all hot and sweaty in the kitchen.  Sure, it’s unsanitary, but a nude Padma bossing those eager chefs around is too appealing of an idea to worry about E. coli.

A word from Padma: In India, we like healthier, more voluptuous types.”

Amen, sister.  You gotta have something to grab on to.  Check out a few more pics of Padma and all of her voluptuousness after the jump!
