Beautiful and poor because if one is beautiful and has an ounce of intelligence, they're not going to stay poor for very long. My sister is a perfect example of this. She went from being a bartender at a night club to being a supervisor in charge of over 40 people at a zoo after working there less than a year. She is by no means rich, but she makes as much as I do as a Physical therapist with a HS education. She is also married to a former professional athlete that owns a health spa, so she really doesn't even need to work. She is far and above the dumbest and most incompetent person in our family, but her life has been a fairy tale since she was a kid because of her looks. It's frustrating because both my brother and myself are pretty decent looking guys, but we don't receive any of the special treatment that someone like my sister receives as being (in the words of every male friend I have) a solid 10.

Gorgeous and broke. For us woman; our beauty can make us money even if we're born broke.

I have a lot of money but I think I'm very ugly (have a muscular body but my eyelids droop). I do not show my wealth. I used to be a stud in my 30-something years but the body changes. I could not care less about relationships anymore. I just have too much to do.

I like it this way. Never was really into style but have a lot of substance.

That depends, if I were 20 years old I would rather be beautiful because I could use my beauty to make money or just marry some rich sucker that wants a trophy wife.

If I were 60 I would rather be rich because my beauty isn't going to be much of an advantage in making money or landing a sugar daddy.

Also, how ugly are we talking? Like other people have already said, a lot of money can buy you a great plastic surgeon.

Well look at this lady. So a good surgeon can work wonders.

Thing is being sure to get a good one, not a quack who will make you look like a freak.

Look at celebs who may money to get new boobs, butts, nose jobs. When you're rich, you can buy a perfect body. Then for women who look good with make-up, I think I heard something about being able to get make-up tattooed and bleach into the skin. Definitely a thought.

So, any people who feel unattractive, focus on school and career and getting that high level job. Then you can fix/buy your looks.

Being fugly and rich could be a lonely existence.
The choice is impossible. I believe that beauty is a result of good health, which just isn't free. It seems easier to maintain health if you have money. And why would somebody rich be fugly? They can just get reconstructive surgery?!
