Miami Ranked America's Vainest City
|Yes, that song is about us.|
The survey asked respondents to rank how others perceived their attractiveness on a scale of 1 to 10, and Miamians apparently ranked themselves the highest.
Miamians apparently put a lot of work into their looks. When asked whether they had known someone who had gone under the knife, Miami came in first in a number of categories. We apparently know more people who have had laser hair removal, a tummy tuck, collagen injections, and liposuction than any of the 20 other cities. We came in second for facelifts, boob jobs, and lip enhancements. Interestingly we only came in 15th for hair transplants.
We were also first for respondents who said that they themselves had had hair coloring, a manicure/pedicure, a facial, or a wax in the past year.
While we may think a lot about ourselves, the results when asked about other people in the city were a bit less enthusiastic. Fifty-three percent of Miamians say that woman in our city are beautiful. We ranked only sixth in that category. Only 38 percent said that the men were handsome (ninth overall). We also came in first for respondents who agreed the men in the city are short.
