That is hilarious.
When I was in NY most of the most beautiful people I saw tended to be Europeans (say at the Guggenheim museum which seemed full of them). The local NY women seemed kind of plain from what I saw.

In fact the opposite. Also many Australians are of Irish ancestry.

Why, you think that certain part of Europeans ( certain countries may be) can compete with Americans in this respect? May be I'm partial after all - I don't care much for "Southern" kind of look... ( Italy, Spain,Greece, Balkans...)
As for the generic "Northern look" - yes, I think Americans look good (in physical sense of it.) But then again I live in the Midwest...
May be there is too much in-breeding in Europeans ( comparably to Americans) - could be the case, I dunno.
But no matter what - Europeans ( the ones that look good) do beat Americans as far as I'm concerned.

Same was in Moscow - I saw a lot of good-looking Europeans in Bolshoy Theater and Tretyakov gallery, but it was a different picture on the streets of Europe and in airports...

we dont consider ourselves to be a good looking people but an irish woman who is a 10 beats almost anyone anywhere , they have a softness to them

ugliest people in the world are the scots irish in northern ireland , combination of a shallow gene pool and bitter personality which results in a clenched uptight appearance

I don't know if it's only me but I can't describe the average American look... I think American people are a mix of European looks, so I couldn't answer your question

I agree with if a Irish women rating a 10 almost beats anyone anywhere.

Yet I don't find real difference with the looks of Scots Irish people if they are with a group of Irish people in a crowd. I can't tell if someone from Ulster is Scots Irish or Irish and even the accent. Yet I find Irish people in the republic more friendly and open than the people from Ulster and I found the people from Ulster when I made effort to get to know them as being weird. Yet I sure not all Ulster people are like that.
