Credit: Jose Ramirez

Jose Ramirez came into our lives earlier this year on the wildly popular HBO Max series 12 Dates of Christmas. He was one of the many handsome men featured that we fell in love with on his romantic journey with leading suitor Garrett Marcantel

The Washington D.C. mainstay is our newest pick for Instinct Hottie and we couldn’t think of a better person to close 2020 with. His charismatic personality, good looks and irresistible charm made him a fan favorite especially during that scene where he legit told Garrett he wanted to kiss him during a beautiful day out in Austria.
