Looking for attractive people? Don't go to...

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States, a survey of visitors and residents showed on Friday.

The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at Travel + Leisure Magazine | Vacation guides, travel articles, hotel recommendations, and deals -- which ranked 25 cities in categories including shopping, food, culture, and cityscape, said Amy Farley, senior editor at the magazine.

For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found.

But Farley pointed out the results don't mean people in Philadelphia are ugly or the city is a bad place to visit.

"We were asking people to vote on attractiveness, not unattractiveness. Travel & Leisure editors believe there are a lot of attractive people in Philadelphia," she said.

"The relative attractiveness of its residents is only a minuscule factor in evaluating a city's merit."

Philadelphians' self-esteem has been undermined by national surveys showing they are among the fattest people in the United States. The American Obesity Association ranked the city in the top 10 for overweight people every year between 2000 and 2005.

And sporting pride in a city known for the fierce loyalty of its fans has been hurt by not having had a national champion in any of its four main sports since the 76ers won the National Basketball Association title in 1983.

I had the opportunity to attend an NFL game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington (DC) Redskins as a guest of the Redskins. The morning of the game, we got on the second team bus with all the other invited guests and left the Team's hotel and convoyed with screaming cop cars to Lincoln Field.

To enter the complex, we had to travel around all 4 sides of the stadium, passing fenced in parking lots lined with Eagles fans. Every man, woman, child, gramma and granpa near the fence line gave us the finger. As it took a few minutes to make the complete tour, I started searching for someone who was NOT giving us the finger.

Nope...it was unanimous.

Philadelphia sports fans are nasty - especially Eagles fans. Wear Cowboys colors to an Eagles game and one would be guaranteed plethora of verbal and physical abuse.

A steady diet of scrapples and cheesesteak will no doubt uglify just about anyone.

Detroit is full of old people coming back from Windsor after hitting up the drug stores and casinos.
