According to Maxim’s Hot 100 list, Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend.

The magazine placed the fictional hottie at number 69 on their list.

“After Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She’s got a ton of great qualities including looking awesome in a bikini,” the magazine writes.

Te’o is a former Notre Dame linebacker who was recently picked up by the San Diego Chargers. Te’o was duped by Ronaiah Ruiasosopo who struck up an online romantic relationship with the football play for a year. Ruiasosopo pretended to be Lennay Kekua. Kekua supposedly died of leukemia last year, creating a number of heartfelt stories of Te’o’s heartbreak.

As for the real women on Maxim’s Hot 100 list, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Rihanna rounded out the top three.
