Well, at least we're better looking than Ohio... but not by much...

A new study by Zippia.com ranks all 50 states according to how attractive the people are. And Michigan did NOT fare well.

What do you think of Zippia's criteria? They say attraction isn't just surface level: "People are attracted to partners who are successful and well-educated. After all, what’s more beautiful than a nice mind?" -- so they also took into account income.

Zippia ranked each state in 5 categories:

  • Interest in hair, clothes, and other grooming
  • Obesity rates
  • Percent of residents who are physically active
  • Average Income
  • STD rates

Out of all 50 states, Michigan is way down at #36. Yikes! Well, at least we're not in dead last... that would be Mississippi. And Ohio? #37. So we've got that going for us, which is nice.

So which states are full of hotties?

According to Zippia, these are the Top Ten Most Attractive States:

  1. New Jersey
  2. Hawaii
  3. California
  4. Massachusetts
  5. New York
  6. Colorado
  7. Connecticut
  8. Rhode Island
  9. Alaska
  10. Arizona

While it is kind of a bummer for the Mitten State to be ranked so low, as Zippia points out:

"Maybe you want to live in the unattractive states so you stand out."
