The following are commonly-used patterns that I find in some resources.

  • A: 彼は私ほどハンサムじゃない。He is not as handsome as I.
  • B: 私ほどハンサムな男の人はいない。There is no man who is as handsome as I.

Question

Is it possible to rearrange B so that it looks like A as follows.

ハンサムな男の人は私ほどいない。

No, you can't rearrange it, since it's going to be grammatically incorrect.

In your sentence, the 私ほど is describing the subject and is part of ハンサムな男の人.

As a side note I would suggest useing ex. 他にない:

私ほどハンサムな男の人は他にいない。
