AskMen.com, a leading men’s lifestyle website with 17 million monthly readers, has just released its eighth annual Top 49 Most Influential Men list. Sorry, you didn't make it.

Why 49 and not 50? Don't ask.

Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and co-founder of Tesla Motors and PayPal, takes top honors on the poll, which was determined by more than 100,000 voters. NBA hero Jason Collins, who made history earlier this year when he became the first male U.S. pro athlete to come out as gay while still an active player, took the No. 2 spot, topping dudes like Drake, Peyton Manning, Jimmy Fallon, Bryan Cranston, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and LeBron James.

The bad news? A No. 11, Vladimir Putin beat President Barack Obama at No. 17.
