I don`t think plastic surgery makes people attractive. Have you seen Joan Rivers? Nor do I think Americans are the most attractive. I`ve done a lot of travelling and I can definitively say the sexiest people live in the Czech Republic. With Brazil (specifically Rio) coming in a close second. But really you wanna see hot people? Go to Prague, you won`t be disappointed.

Okay, but how many (good) looking americans are real? By real, I mean no plastic surgery, no lipo, no special $40,000 treatments or any other kind of shortcut? How many people in america would REALLY look good if none of the beauty industry materials existed? How many people are naturally healthy and good looking?

When you think of it, almost everyone in the USA is a decendant of an immigrant from one of the lower on the list european countries, except for Native Americans. Further, many people, such as myself, are such a mix of nationalities that they can`t name them all. So why are we the "most attractive?" especially with all our problems with obesity n such. I call shenanigans on this poll.

I travel for my work, I go to a lot of conferences all over the world and I always visit the local city. In all honesty, white, black and asian folk look pretty much EXACTLY the same whereever you go. This is hardly surprising as Europeans are genetically European, Africans are genetically African and Indians are genetically Indian. America is mainly made up of European, Indian and African, and guess what? They look just the same as us. If you want to see a high proportion of attractive looking people, go to somewhere like Thailand, per population, the people there blow America and Europe away for looks. I`m saddened by this poll, too many idiots get their geographical and historical education of stereotypes from Hollywood, and the truth is the USA and the rest of the world could not be more different from Hollywood depictions.

Hmmm, or maybe it`s because America shoves its media down everyone`s throat and so *more* Americans are seen over any other nationality.

Hannibal Lecter quote:

“He covets. That is his nature. And how do we begin to covet, Clarice? Do we seek out things to covet? Make an effort to answer, now. …We begin by coveting things we see everyday…”

Meaning the more we see Americans, the more we want them. I`m sure if China as an example made more blockbusters etc, we`d be drooling over them just as much

Yeah America rocks because of all the good looking people from across the world come here to live. They all want to be movie/music stars with lots of worldwide media exposure. California alone out-paces the world with plastic Barbie`s and Kens. Wash all the makeup off and see what you get. I`ve seen quite a bevy of stars without makeup on as the humidity here in Hawaii is high. believe me they are not that hot as they think.

"The only reason America came in first is because there are more people here that can afford plastic surgery and make-up. If you were to take that away, almost all of the people in America (Inc. Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, etc) would look like average joe`s themselves.

Seriously, 95% of the people in America that would be deemed "physically attractive" would no longer be that beautiful without their make-up, plastic surgery, and photo-shop.

I assure you the top 20 most attractive people in the world, without all the second hand crap applied, would probably come from 20 different countries, and America might not even make it on to the list."

It`s only because the only things America tries to Globalize use false standards of beauty. What I mean is, Americans try to only let images of their best looking people out to the world. And also, sex sells, so we use it to advertise EVERYTHING.

...but our overseas record precedes us no matter how nice we look. The majority of Americans are super unhealthy and overweight, so once most of us get past the age of 20-25, it`s all over for our looks and our bodies.

Luckily, we are pretty diverse and getting more mixed everyday. We all know mixed people are the sexiest. Just like me. ^^

File this under obvious.

It`s carved right on the Statue of Liberty.

Of course America is full of hawtness, not only do we draw from a pool of all the worlds sexiest folks, but we also have the luxury of deciding what*is* hot!

Why is it that we Americans have to make excuses to be good at something. drat all those ugly mother draters around the world. I`m pretty sure most of the iconic celebrities were good looking before they became famous, you guys must be retarded if you think Harrison Ford, Clint Eastwood, Marilyn Monroe, and countless other actors were not good looking when they first started. They were extremely good looking and the only reason they would get plastic surgery is because now they are older. I`m pretty sure almost a high percentage of Americans can`t afford and do not get plastic surgery. Are you drating kidding me 95%? What country do the women not wear make up? and what the hell does photoshop have to do with anything? Obviously all the ugly people in America come on this site, which is why they don`t agree.

Maybe it`s because America is so diverse, that everyone`s idea of beauty can be found here. A lot of countries have a certain stereotype of beauty applied to them, while America doesn`t really have just one ideal of beauty. I`m not saying that everyone looks the same in other countries, but foreigners tend to think of a certain look for most countries that they haven`t lived in themselves.

I call B.S. because they only compared the best looking few to the best looking few of each nation. If they took averages or they sampled the best and the worst, well, the United States would boast both the best looking and also the ugliest, most obese people on Earth. But in this study they only looked at movie stars.
