Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford has topped People's 10th annual list of the Hottest Bachelors around. Note to anyone interested in Chace: be low-maintenance.

Here's the Gossip Girl hunk and Footloose star on the cover ...

World's Hottest Bachelor!

How long can Chace Crawford, 23, stay single?

He beat out the likes of Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf, Adam Lambert, Ryan Eggold, Kellan Lutz, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), Brody Jenner, Common, Taylor Kitsch and Robert Pattinson for the honor of the year's hottest single stud.

Will he be eligible this time next year?

Of his first kiss, Chace says, "Fifth grade. Her name was Kiley Smith and she was my best friend's twin sister. It was one of those super-awkward things. We were at camp, on a lake, really picturesque – it's kind of seared into memory! We're still friends."

On dating singer Carrie Underwood: "I have nothing bad to say about that experience. It was awesome. I just didn't know how to deal with it ... I learned a ton about dating in that kind of spotlight. It was such a whirlwind, but no regrets."

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
