PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States, a survey of visitors and residents showed on Friday.
ADVERTISEMENT

The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favourite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at www.travelandleisure.com -- which ranked 25 cities in categories including shopping, food, culture, and cityscape, said Amy Farley, senior editor at the magazine.

For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found.

But Farley pointed out the results don't mean people in Philadelphia are ugly or the city is a bad place to visit.

"We were asking people to vote on attractiveness, not unattractiveness. Travel & Leisure editors believe there are a lot of attractive people in Philadelphia," she said.

"The relative attractiveness of its residents is only a minuscule factor in evaluating a city's merit."

Philadelphians' self-esteem has been undermined by national surveys showing they are among the fattest people in the United States. The American Obesity Association ranked the city in the top 10 for overweight people every year between 2000 and 2005.

And sporting pride in a city known for the fierce loyalty of its fans has been hurt by not having had a national champion in any of its four main sports since the 76ers won the National Basketball Association title in 1983.

Ive never been to Philly before but, what do you guys think about this?

this seems true cause no one visits the main line. but for the most part philly is the blue collar city so you can expect most people not to give a shit about fashion and culture. i don't give a fck i still love this city.

Word. Philly is a working class city so you're not gonna see a lot of model type chicks walking around. I still love the city though and being a college town any walk through University City or Center City will show you that we've got plenty of attractive college chicks. Generally the wealthier a city, the more hot chicks there will be. There's a big difference in the way people look in LA and Detroit.

From a sociological/cultural perspective the ranking kinda makes sense as American society tends to define beauty in relation to how much one has Caucasian characteristics and Philadelphia is home to a lot of black folks. Generally American ideals of beauty don't tend to value black characteristics so I think the rankings probably reflect a degree of open and subconscious prejudice as well.

Truer words have never been spoken.

One of the poorest cities + one of the blackest cities = ugliness. That explains why DC is up there even though DC has plenty of nice looking women living there.

LMAO @ San Diego being one of the top homes of the finest women. That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, there aren't too many places in Northern California period that have a surplus of attractive girls. If you want proof, look at the video girls of any Bay Area funded music video. Yeah, those are supposed to be "dimes".

I may not have read this right, but it looks like you are implying SD is in norcal...

Anyways, my cousin just got back from Philadelphia about 3 weeks. When he got back and was telling me about his trip he went out of his way to mention how overweight everyone was (which I found odd at the time).
