Social news and media entertainment site BuzzFeed jokingly
ranked the male portraits on U.S. paper money according to “hotness”
recently, and it should come as no surprise that the country's first Treasury secretary tops the list.
Alexander Hamilton’s portrait on currently circulating $10 Federal
Reserve notes ranked No. 1 out of 12 images.

Calling Hamilton “America’s Sweet Prince of the Pocket,” BuzzFeed's
post says “it’s only fitting that Alexander Hamilton is on the face of
the $10, because he is a 10, through and through. That Grecian nose!
Those soulful eyes! The coy smile playing at the corners of that
perfectly etched mouth!”
George Washington, aka George “Washboard Abs” Washington, according
to BuzzFeed’s list, came in at No. 8.
Washington, depicted on the current $1 FRNs, was described as “not
the first guy you’d bring to a party — yet, somehow … not the last.
With a certain tilt of the head and a heavy squint, he looks just the
smallest bit like [actor] Joseph Gordon-Levitt.”
Ranked No. 7 was “Babe-raham” Lincoln.
Lincoln's portrait on the $5 FRNs is noted for “hollow cheeks that
models would envy, that stoic look and our collective knowledge of the
genius behind those eyes is enough for a slow nod — and a slow clap, too.”
