The research was conducted cosmetic surgery specialists Longevita - as cited by The Sun - and found that the 38-year-old royal has been described as 'sexy' online a staggering 17.6 million times. This is double the amount of sexy bald silver medallist, Mike Tyson.
Now, no disrespect intended, but you wouldn't really have put your money on that being the top two, would you?
In fact, it's somewhat controversial that Prince William has been included in the competition. After all, he's not fully bald is he? He certainly hasn't accepted that he is anyway.
The rest of the top 10 features some predictable hairless favourites, as well as a few more dark horses:
- Prince William - 17.6m
- Mike Tyson - 8.8m
- Jason Statham - 7.4m
- Pitbull - 5.4m
- Michael Jordan - 5.3m
- Floyd Mayweather - 4.3m
- John Travolta - 3.8m
- Bruce Willis - 3.3m
- Dwayne Johnson - 2.6m
- Vin Diesel - 2.3m
Statham was never gonna be far off the top spot, was he? Pretty sure Pitbull himself must be responsible for the majority of those 5.4 million 'sexy Pitbull' search results though.
Travolta has of course only become eligible in recent years, while the Fast & Furious fellas will no doubt be gutted they didn't finish in pole position.
Travolta and co could potentially remove themselves from the sexy bald race altogether with a little bit of mangrove tree extract, researchers hope.
The extract, called Avicequinon C, was found to stop the body producing hormones that can result in hair loss.
Thus far, the research team at Chulalongkorn University's Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences have tested the extract on a group of 50 men and women with androgenic alopecia, the most common form of hair loss.
Participants had made visible improvements after a month, and what's more, it seemed the treatment not only stemmed hair loss, but also boosted hair growth.
This means it may help people who have already lost more than their fair share of hair.
The next step is to test the extract on more volunteers, so that it can be approved by Thailand's Food and Drug Administration.
Should it get the go-ahead, a private company has already bought the patent of the research, which it can use to develop a hair loss product.
If you are bald though, you could save yourself from splashing cash on mangrove tree extracts by simply accepting your baldness, like I did - eventually.
