The Votes are In, the Sexiest American Accent Is…
I remember meeting my boyfriend for the first time and instantly thinking, "I am going to make him mine!" I was drawn by his good looks and impeccable style, but what hooked me was that Texan accent.
When I was in California I used to beg visitors from Texas to say things in their Southern accents. Can you blame a woman? Turns out it's not just me who loves that sexy southern accent. Hostel staff members from 43 different countries were asked by Babbel to pick which accents they found the sexiest. Should I be offended that my Californian accent didn't make it on the list?
According to Babbel.com, here are the American accents that Hostel workers voted on as the most attractive:
1. Deep South (20%)
2. New Yorker (18%)
3. Bostonian (17%)
4. Southern Californian (16%)
5. Texan (14%)
6. Midwestern (10%)
7. Minnesotan (5%)
We do have some questions. How can Europeans tell the difference between Deep Southern accents and Texan accents? Personally, I can't tell the difference. They are both relaxed and drawn out, however, I feel like you have to be from Georgia or Texas to be able to tell the difference.
I can't believe that the Louisianan accent didn't even make the list. Doesn't everyone dream of that sexy Cajun accent asking if you want more crawfish?
The one thing that does not make sense to us is the Minnesotan accent being put on the list. On behalf of American's all over the country, none of us find a Minnesotan accent sexy, like at all. Maybe that 5% is a pity score?
What American accent do you think is the sexiest?
