Which Celeb Do You Want to Smooch on Valentine’s?

Is anyone surprised that the kiss seen round the world on Super Bowl Sunday catapulted Bar Refaeli to first place in Jewcier.com’s Valentine’s Day poll? Of course not.

The Israeli supermodel has gotten a whole lot of traction from the pucker power generated by her sexy smooch with nerdy actor Jesse Heiman in the Go Daddy ad that has been replayed ad nauseum since the big game. So, it’s completely natural that she’d be the celebrity that the vast majority of the men participating in the online Jewish dating website’s survey said they would want to romance on February 14.

Refaeli, who garnered a whopping 65% of the male vote, left Mila Kunis (19%), Scarlett Johansson (11%), Sarah Silverman (3%), and Kate Hudson (2%) in the dust. It’s amazing how drastically Kunis’ hotness factor declined after she attached herself to Ashton Kutcher. She’ll really have to think strategically if she plans on trying to unseat Refaeli’s perfectly shaped bottom from top place next year.

The women among the approximately 2,500 Jewish singles who took the survey made it be known that they far prefer a heavily tattooed singer to a bunch of sensitive actors and a porn star. It’s the bad boy that the good girls always have a crush on.

Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine is the dream date of 55% of the female respondents, while Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Franco and Adam Garfield got only 25%, 10% and 6% of the vote, respectively. Only 4% of the women would consider spending Valentine’s Day with James Deen, no matter how impressive his physical attributes are.

Jewcier’s list of fantasy Valentine’s romance partners is clearly not exhaustive. Which celebrity would you vote for? You’ve only got until Thursday to decide.
