'Sexiest Doctor Alive' Raffles Off Date for Charity

Jan 19, 2016

The man who has been dubbed the “Sexiest Doctor Alive” is raffling off a date for charity.

Mikhail Varshavski, 26, who was featured in People magazine’s 2015 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, is offering one lucky woman a romantic night out in New York City. But prospective dates first have to donate to a nonprofit he started, the Limitless Tomorrow Foundation, which offers financial assistance to students. They also have to beat out a pool of other donors.

“You’ll fly to New York City and stay at a 4-star hotel,” reads the proposal, which was posted on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. “You and Mike will dine at a Michelin Star restaurant.”

Varshavski, who is described on the website as “the real life McDreamy,” is also on the hunt for a lifelong partner. “I’m actively looking for a serious relationship and surprisingly this fame has not made it simpler to find a compatible partner,” he told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.

The Russian-born man works at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, N.J., where he has been a medical resident for two years. Varshavski has more than 1 million followers on Instagram and is a self-described “avid explorer of life.”
