Aisha Tyler

Tyler was the black sheep ("I stood out in high school because I was tall, weird and Black," she said) that blossomed into a swan. The former Talk Soup host and Friends series regular is the total package: gorgeous, brainy and funny as hell. What's more, Tyler  — whose humor can be so dirty it would make Chris Rock blush — has no problem being one of the boys.
