A new study found that out every place in the entire world, a New York accent was found to be the least attractive of them all. You’re telling us we ranked last for something—fuggedaboutit!
The global accent battle, published by Highland Titles, surveyed 1,000 Americans on their perceptions and opinions on accents around the world.
Unfortunately, the bad news continues as the study found significant evidence proving that attractiveness can be contingent on your voice. In fact, 71% of those surveyed shared that they were interested in dating someone with an accent.
So who’s looking to score best in the dating game based on their voice? The answer is Australians. I mean there’s a reason Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman were both named the Sexiest Man Alive, as mentioned in the study.
Following New York in the least attractive accents is Boston, American Midwestern, Canadian, American South, Spanish, German, and Yorkshire. New York also ranked in the top 3 for the most annoying accents and the most boring accents.
To make up for this upsetting ranking, at least we can find solace in the fact that we were just voted the third best city in the entire world. So take that you Australians! But honestly, who are we kidding—we’re no more immune to your adorable accent than anyone else.
