The 50 most attractive nationalities in the world have been revealed – and it’s India that is No.1, with the USA beating Sweden to the runner-up spot.
The ranking was produced by an analysis of thousands of Reddit posts about attractive nations. Any Reddit posts referencing ‘attractive’, ‘sexy’, ‘beautiful’, ‘handsome’, ‘gorgeous’, ‘good looking’, ‘pretty’ and ‘hot’ with a country was analysed. A score was then created using the number of posts, comments and upvotes.
According to the study, by the swimwear brand Pour Moi, Japanese people are the fourth most attractive, Canadians the fifth best-looking and Brazilians the sixth.
The rest of the top ten comprises France (seventh), Italy (eighth), Ukraine (ninth) and Denmark (10th).

As part of the study, Midjourney, an AI image generation tool, was tasked with producing images of what it believed attractive people in 14 of the countries look like.
Pour Moi said: ‘When it comes to the most attractive women around the world, Indian women top the list for Reddit users. With an extremely successful Bollywood movie scene, with women wearing gorgeous gowns and wearing equally as eye-catching make-up and hair, it’s easy to see why these women have been crowned the most attractive.

It added: ‘For the most attractive male nationalities, the UK tops the list for users online who may be swooning over the quintessentially British handsome man you think of from classic period dramas such as Pride & Prejudice or a more modern-day heart-throb.
‘Indian men are second in the list as the most attractive men, whether it’s their sultry good looks drawing people in or their typically strong family values people find enticing.
‘Rounding off the top three are Italian men, known for being quite passionate about life and more expressive with their feelings, it’s easy to see why users would find them so attractive.’
