I know, I know. What a ridiculous question. Everybody knows that the only reason you “accidentally” tuned in for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, all 10.3 million of you, was because you left the TV on after you spent a wholesome evening watching Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and got distracted whilst baking cookies. (For the models! Happy Holidays, girls!)

Are they gone?… Okay, so now that your judgmental loved ones and co-workers are out of the room, we here at PopWatch are dying to know: Why did you actually watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and help propel it to Tuesday night’s highest-rated show? Is it the obvious answer in that there was a parade of gorgeous, skimpy models flaunting their — as VS enthusiast Barney Stinson would describe them, “boob-shaped boobs” — in even skimpier skivvies? (Ah, if only Jersey Shore‘s Deena could have given a running commentary throughout the affair. “Do ya like tha boobs?!”)

Or was it something more than that? After all, the stunning supermodels, and their accompanying boobs, were on display during last year’s show, but last night’s broadcast was up a whopping 35 percent from 2010. Maybe you actually tuned in to see if musical guests Kanye West would pull a Kanye (he didn’t, unless you count his upstaging leather pants) or Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine would shamelessly flirt with the models (he did)? Did you watch to see equally sexy significant others in the audience, like Beyoncé, who was there to support hubby Jay-Z, or Orlando Bloom, who adorably cheered on his wife, model Miranda Kerr? Or is it that you simply can’t miss seeing the outrageous get-ups they put these ladies in for an hour? So tell us honestly, adults, mostly aged 18-49, why did you really watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? Vote in the poll and share in the comments section below.
