We've heard that Hollywood is full of lies. Everything that is released from the movie industry is 90% make believe, so it shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone. But when you ask which state has the most beautiful people, the answer that pops to many people's minds is California. We now have evidence, that much like the shining star of that state, that notion is also a lie.

Before I'm attacked for this article, yes, I know I'm not a beautiful person, and don't worry, I was in disbelief by the statistical survey conducted by BonusFinder.com as well. But when you really think about it, the way you can bend stats and information, and the select data that is gathered, you might be able to make the case for any state to claim top spot for most beautiful residents.


I'm not saying Illinois cheated (in other words, they were ranked the number 1 state with the most beautiful residents), but if we wanted to dig deeper, I'm sure we could make a fun conspiracy theory out of the whole thing. Just because the data collected (sexy celebrities, Victoria's Secret Angels, People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, beauty pageant winners etc.) all pointed at Illinois being the most attractive state based on attractive people, doesn't mean it's true.

Based off the breakdown from KHOU, it wouldn't take much to snag the top spot! Illinois either just needs to have a population boom, or California needs to get more sexy award winners! No sweat! Besides, 2nd place is nothing to be ashamed of.


Rounding out the top 6 are Texas, Nebraska, New York and Hawaii respectively. I'm kind of surprised Hawaii isn't higher up on the list, but who would have guessed the top spot would belong to Illinois!?!
