Yes they're better-looking than Germans and usually darker-eyed, darker-haired, darker or more olive-skinned. About 8% of Italians are blonde, while 30% of your countrymen are.

Nope! First watch your spelling. White Americans are not just like Britons/ Australians/ Irish, though they formed the "core" ancestry for White people here! We show a much larger diversity. We have Italian, German, Polish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Dutch( maternal link in my case) Greek, Russian, Finnish, Slovaks, Serbian, Hungarian, etc..... In fact, at least 50 million of Americans have German ancestry. Many immigrants to the U.S. in the late 1800's and early 1900's anglicized their names to avoid discrimination.

I know a lot of Armenians and they all look pretty much alike. In fact, I can identify one on sight. French people are the most variable-appearing in my experience. A mix of Mediterranean, English - Norman, and a smattering of many other ethnics.

Many North Italians have light brown hair, fair skin, and hazel green, even blue eyes. They look remarkably like Austrians with which I think they share a lot of ancestry. They look completely different from central and southern Italians, even when brunette.

I never said that all Irish are gingers! So that will make you a pure liar!
All I said that gingers are much more frequent in Ireland and Scotland than elsewhere in the world, and that the majority of Irish and to an extent (White) British are pale and blue or green-eyed, regardless of hair colour. I don't need to insist on it at all! It's backed up by studies(BritainsDna Project for example) and most people that I know who are from the British Isles and in my own family are so. The Anglo-Saxons were not necessarily more blue-eyed than Celts! Ireland and West Scotland has more blue-eyed people than East and South-East England. You could be a descendant of the Anglo-Saxon with your brown hair and brown eyes. I didn't say that Irish and Britons are ugly, rather your friends Don Caballero, Juggernaut, CliffofDover, Traveller86 and so forth. What is hilarious is that you agreed with what they said! Ha!ha!ha!ha!

I'm going to say Armenians and Georgians. Many have a Mediterranean look (dark hair, creamy olive skin), but there are those who look Nordic (light hair, white skin) and others would even have a South Asian appearance. Despite this, they're all ethnically homogeneous and are not even mixed. I was going to say Turks too, but they actually have a bit admixture (southern Europe, Baltic and central Asia). Any others?

Armenians (notice how their look varies between each person): http://www.1tv.am/images/news/1/2689/g1.jpeg

Again, this is not to be confused with diverse nationalities (i.e. Brazil, American, Canadian, etc).
Armenians definitely can look varied, but that pic of Armenia's Eurovision group from 2015 probably isn't the best example. One of the girls is half white Australian and another is half Japanese.

Romanians are very diverse. I know some blonde hairy green eye light skin Romanians. Then some who are tan with dark hair and dark eyes like Southern Europeans. Then the gypsy/Roma population who are very dark.

Are we counting people like Russians? They can be some of the most pale, fair skinned people on earth IMO. But one of my friends' parents are from the area by the Black Sea and people often think she's Arab/something Middle Eastern/often Lebanese. Some people even think she's mixed white and black because she's pretty dark with big naturally curly hair. Then there are the Siberians who look more East Asian than anything else.

Yes northern Russians are pretty pale too, however the Irish,(White) British, Scandinavians have a higher frequency of skin phototype I/II than Russians. Nearly 80% of the Irish population are of skin phototype I/II, that's much higher than for Russians.
