The Top 5 Sexiest Nationalities, According To Science

One day, the town where I live (Glendale, California) will have Kim Kardashian as its mayor. It doesn't matter that our mayor isn't elected by a general election — if Kim wants it, she'll probably get it.

You may wonder why in the world someone as successful and fabulous as Kim would want to be mayor of a town (ten minutes from downtown Los Angeles) anyway. I'm guessing it's because Glendale has the largest population of Armenians outside of Armenia. There's even an entry in Urban Dictionary about it.

A study put out by travel dating website MissTravel found that the sexiest nationality for women is Armenian and for men, Irish.​ MissTravel surveyed its American users and found out this very important data. 

Here are the top five sexiest nationalities for women, based on the preferences of 44,873 of American men.

Kim Kardashian is hugely popular and beautiful, so it's no wonder Armenian women topped the list of the sexiest nationalities for women. And it also seems obvious that Irish guys (while lovely) got a boost from the very attractive Jamie Dornan from Fifty Shades of Grey.
