Not Philly!


The word on the street is that if you are in Philly, it's going to be harder to find that attractive mate because...well...umm...Philly is home to the least attractive people in the US, and DC wasn't that far behind. Dang! What's in their water?

Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States, a survey of visitors and residents showed on Friday.

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 Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at -- 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.

I read ths article yesterday. I would be curious to see how the person who took the survey looked. Sometimes folks have too much time on their hands.

Mega Rich said...

Right. I always wonder about polls because I think they are culturally biased. I wonder how many people of color (Hispanic, African American, Asian, etc) were approached?

We are some beautiful people.

I agree - as is the subject of beauty vs. ugly. It comes down to a matter of taste. So it's a pretty vain study anyway.

Ticia said...

I know 2 ugly people in Philly!! LOL---

Yes..that is right... they are UGLY inside and out!!!

Peace :)

lea78 said...

What? why would they even take such a stupid survey. I have come to find some of the prettiest people are the ugliest, not me because I am pretty in and out. Or so I been told. Let me quit lying I am a bitch. But the dudes here in the Lou could sure qualify and go on that list as ugly and broke. not all, just most

Mega Rich said...

Check it, St. Louis didn't even make the list, what does that tell you. So much for grills and sagging pants. Not that I dress like that. But I'm just sayin'.

Glad to have Lance back in the house. What up!

Lea78, thanks for coming through. Anytime. Mi Casa Su Casa

Girly_Girl said...

Well, well, well.

I can't believe someone actually took the time to do a study like this!!!

Don said...

Definitely some beautiful black women in Atlanta. Never been to Philly. Florida has some beautiful blac women and black puerto rican women

lol @ what Ticia said

KIKI said...

I don't know who in da hell they polled, but I've dated a couple of FIONE brahs from Philly! (and damn the women in the offense Miz...but the brothers there...FINGER LICKIN GOOD...mmmmm-mmmmm).

Bottom line...there are some ugly mo'foes in every city. As others have commented, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Lance said...

whut up bruh rich?...yeah, atlanta takes the cake when it comes to sisters. sorry, eurbody else. it used to be d.c., chicago, detroit, los angeles (watts, outside of watts, run like hell!!!) you know..the chocolate cities of the u.s., but atlanta??? oooooh, dammit man!!!

so many fine ass women in atlanta you gotta get whiplash insurance for your neck in looking backwards and forwards and rubbernecking around corners. (higher premiums if married!)

hell, all you gotta do is go to any grocery store or walmart or mall, especially lenox mall on a saturday and we can be "booty judges" like at the olympics ice skating events.

wow, i can see it now....

me, rich, c-mac, rawdawg and any of you new brutha cats sitting at a table holding up signs of 10's, 9's and 8's!!!! drinkin' sweet tea and talkin' shit! you kno' how we do!!!!

Mega Rich said...

All I got to say is...

Lance, you sure were missed around these parts. You always have me cracking up.

Lance said...

"no offense Miz...but the brothers there...FINGER LICKIN GOOD...mmmmm-mmmmm)." - kiki

problem is kiki a lot of those a-t-l bruhs you're talkin' 'bout are lickin' each other fingers!

KFC ain't got shit on dem!!!! ;-P

Mizrepresent said...

lol Lance, ROTFLMAO, no lie!Definitely the city of "brotherly love"!

Femigog said...

Okay this survey was just silly but it was entertaining. and I am dying laughing at Lance's comment!

KIKI said... know you crazy right!?!

I did live in the ATL for almost three years, and yes, I agree that some of dem brothas are FLAMIN (hell, how you think I found my hairdresser when I lived there?LOL). But ya'll still got plenty (like yourself) who love them some women! Just cause you one of the fine brothers, don't hate on the rest!

MrsGrapevine said...

These two cities have huge urban population of people of color. DC is known as chocolate city. I would have to go a step further and ask "are these cities of least attractive people because they have large black populations."

If so, then I know who participated in the survey.

The Master (De)bater said...

This is some craziness! My one and only trip to Philly may have been short, but I saw some of the finest sistahs outside the South that I've ever seen! I agree with an earlier comment: WHO filled this survey group, and HOW DO THEY LOOK?

aop said...

Well, def a bunch of single people there. (Philly is #10):

Maybe it's because people with SOs seem hotter?
