Just as the question reads.... if someone was holding a gun to your head...and u had to pick..would you rather be drop-dead gorgeous and poor? Or fugly and rich?

I think i'd rather be gorgeous and poor... I feel like beauty would open up a lot of doors for u anyway, and while u may be poor in cash u could potentially be rich in relationships and experiences...


Being fugly and rich could be a lonely existence.

You could probably buy beauty with all of that money, or get pretty close to beautiful.

And beauty doesn't really last...no matter how gorgeous you are at 20, at 60 you're going to wish you were sitting on a pile of cash, rather than a stack of photos of your glory days.

We've had this conversation. Would you rather be ugly and wealthy, or gorgeous and broke?

Ugly and rich. With where the cosmetic and plastic surgery inustries are today ...I am yet to see even the ugliest person who cannot be turned into something decently pleasant with all those acrobatics.

An example that comes to mind: Torri Spelling. A naturally ugly woman as far as I am concerned. And yet,with all the cosmetics and probably plastic surgery too...she is not that bad looking after all, when she shows up all done.

So yes, ugly and rich.

Poverty can turn even the most naturally beautiful person in a ragged, rough, overworked, overwhelmed creature.
