Miami is One of America's Vainest Cities

Categories: Survey Says
Just gonna stand by the lake and check ourselves out in the reflection all day.
You know it costs a lot to look this cheap, and we are damned proud of it. Yes, we Miamians tend to take pride in the looks we serve up and the bodies we flaunt, even if the rest of the country shakes their head at some of our favorite looks. Bitches just jealous. Listacle happy Daily Beast has now crowned us one of the vainest cities in America

In tademark Daily Beast style they take some random statistics they can get a hold of, average them out in some way, and come up with their rankings. In this case they used "percentage of residents for each city was neither overweight nor obese," percentage that belongs to gym, and the average spent on personal care.

Miami came in 15th with the following stats: 

Average monthly personal care spending: $65
Percentage of population not overweight: 38.3
Percent of population that belongs to a gym: 19.2
Oh, boy, only 38.3 of us are not overweight? That's somewhat surprising. Though, compared to some of the other cities on the list that's pretty good. 

The title of America's vainest city goes to San Francisco, where they spend an average of $111 a month on their personal upkeep and 50.4 percent are at a healthy weight.

This is good right? So it means that because we take of ourselves and are not fat fucks, we are vain. This is a stupid list. Stupid, like when Sarah Palin insinuates Harvard graduates(smart people) are bad.

Hey typical Miami douchebag,

There's a big difference between taking care of yourself and keeping fit and being a complete and utter narcissistic, image obsessed douchebag....something Miami is full of. Miami is vanity to the extreme. Qualities such as respect for others, intelligence and open mindedness are overlooked because of image. Fact is that most people in Miami aren't even attractive anyway; all about labels and flashing the cash you don't actually have.

Miami = a city of LOSERS.


Glad you had to clarify Harvard graduates were smart.

Gill,I was commenting on the criteria or stats used to come up with Miami's placement in the list.Average monthly personal care spending: $65 Percentage of population not overweight: 38.3 Percent of population that belongs to a gym: 19.2The above stats are indication of a population that cares about their health not about how vain it's people are. They should have called the list, "America's most health conscious cities". The qualities you list are qualities of people that are shallow and vapid. I agree with you that many people in Miami are shallow. I agree with you I am a douche bag, ugly, and a loser but damn it I am in good health.


Not that they are, so much as very well connected.
