Looks vs. Personality

Lately, it seems like everyone has at least mentioned the likes of Kate Gosselin and Heidi Montag. The whole "reality" genre of television is what I think has contributed to the ruining of scripted television as a whole. I loathe the genre and everything about it. I hate how it thrusts everyday people who are totally unaware of what happens when fame strikes into the limelight. It ruins their lives but often gives them gobs of cash - a truly double-edged sword.

But the real topic here is looks versus personality. In a conversation yesterday it was decided that someone should do a graph depicting the mix of the two, the ideal/typical median and a scientific sampling of a handful of female "celebrities".

I chose Roseanne, Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Gosselin, Tyra Banks, Megan Fox and Heidi Montag in my scientific graph. Look at those results and remember the red line is the median. WHere would some other celebrities land? Where would you land? Me? I'd be squarely in the lower left hand corner. Celebrity-free is the way MinnPics is. It focuses on great photography in Minnesota and you should really take a gander.

I'd probably raise Heidi a little higher in hotness. Of course I haven't seen 5 minutes of her on TV so I know nothing about her, but I'm just going on pictures alone, which is fine with me.

This is awesome, Sornie.

Have you seen the hot and crazy scale from How I Met your Mother? It's also pretty great.

Ha! I'm sorry, but I'm glad Tyra was so far to the right. Worst talk show host ever.

You need more people with personality on your scale, like zooey deschanel, who just happens to be hot too and has quite the voice to boot. OH what an idea! A voice vs. looks graph. Maybe compare Shakira and Susan Boyle. Fun!

pssst. you were WAY too easy on Oprah.
