PEOPLE recently announced Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o as our Most Beautiful Woman of 2014. But what about all the talented hunks out there? Don't worry, the men will have their moment too. In November, PEOPLE will once again reveal the latest Sexiest Man Alive.

But six months is a long time to hold out, so here's a treat to tide you over. Several Sexiest Men Alive – and a few honorable mentions – have not only returned for our viewing pleasure, but they've doubled up. Is it just us, or are these guys looking better than ever?
