The question has now been settled – by a completely unscientific opinion poll, but nevertheless…
The people of Ukraine have been named as the sexiest in the world, according to a new survey.
The people living from the Western steppes Liviv of to the Donbask were found to be the most attractive, followed by Danish and Filipino in third.
In a survey put to over a million people Big 7 travel asked people to name which country had the ‘sexiest nationality’.
The company acknowledged this was a highly subjective question, however that won’t be of any consolation to those nationalities coming bottom of the league.
In case you are wondering, Australia made the top five. The bottom five spots of the top 50 belong to Norwegians, Slovenians, Belgians, Croatians and Irish, which might all prove pretty controversial, particularly since countries like Pakistan and Egypt, not exactly world renowned for “sexy” men and women (to the extent you can even see the women), have been ranked higher. Poland, which generally has a pretty stellar reputation, at least for its fairer sex, only made the 27th spot.
Because this is a respectable political blog (just kidding), I thought that instead merely illustrating the top ten with the most famous living examples (all the news reports on the Big 7 ranking, for instance, single out the Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis as her birth nation’s best rep) I would pick the sexiest politician. Politics, as they unkindly say, might be the Hollywood for ugly people, and we should most definitely judge our elected representatives for their performance rather than their looks, but hey, be honest with me – would you really click on an article “Top 10 Sexiest Nations – and their most effective politicians”? Bet you don’t particularly care which Ukrainian pollie has created the best business climate for investors? We should, and maybe we will, but not just yet. So in the meantime…
Dr Ruby Dhalla (Liberal) and Nicolas Dufour (Bloc Quebecois) – because no, I wasn’t going to give you Justin “Castro” Trudeau.
Arpine Hovhannisyian, former Minister of Justice. Apologies to Armenian men but you don’t seem to pull any weight in Parliament.
Sorry Italian male parliamentarians but none of you that I can find are even remotely in the comparative league to Nicole Minetti and Mara Carfagna, both from Forza Italia.
6. South African
Tim Harris (Democratic Alliance) – and this time sorry South African female parliamentarians…
I got nothing. What do you think?
Eduardo Leite, Mayor of Pelotas, and Sheridan Esterfany, former Secretary of Human Promotion and Development
Isko Moreno, Mayor of Manila, and former congresswoman and a first lady-not to be Monica Teodoro
Nikita Klaestrap (Conservative) and Joachim B. Olsen, a Liberal Alliance party candidate who also famously advertised on PornHub with a tagline (no pun intended): “Når du er færdig med at gokke, så stem på Jokke.” (When you are finished wanking, vote for Jokke!)
Dear Lord, weren’t the voters right? I present to you, clockwise from the top left: Olga Lyulchak (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform), Elena Koshaleva (Radical Party), Natalia Korelevskaya (Ukraine – Forward!) and Natalia Poklonskaya (the Attorney-General of the breakaway region on Crimea).
