I believe perks of being attractive weighs greater for men as it opens our field of play. Women will receive perks courtesy of chivalry and respectable men. I am aware some will project ignorance toward women as of they are only gifts, toys, and tools.

Then how come many of the well known geniuses of recent times were not exactly good looking, while many beauty pageant models have the brains of a centipede?

There's no logic in your reasoning.

You mean like Nicola Tesla, von Braun, and Bobby Fischer? Einstein was also known as a looker, a swanking lady's man.


Most Miss America contestants are college graduates, many going on to graduate studies.


Hmmm...

Tesla was ridiculously good looking.

However, regarding beauty pageant contestants who have degrees, how many are in stem fields? A marketing or psychology degree isn't super impressive or difficult to achieve. If she had an engineering, physics or chemistry degree I'd agree with you, but I doubt they're as prevalent.

Oh, no question. Not that I'm billboard material myself but I'm no troll either. The better you look, the better treatment you get. It's bulls--- but that's the way of the world.

Jackie Siegel, former Miss Florida, was the valedictorian of her graduating class and an IBM engineer before starting her model career. But watching her ask if her Hertz rental car comes with a chauffeur in Queen of Versailles, I would say 20 something years of being sugardaddied for being beautiful didn't really maintain her intellect.

Does she have bangs?

Just kidding, of course.

What I've seen: they lower the "understood" GPA threshold for them to employ them. And I've seen it numerous times.
