    Hey, I can certainly believe that Sharapova may have trouble making the top 2% of women hanging around places called the "Goldcoast" and "Surfer's Paradise Beach", though she was probably hotter than a lot of the girls your eyes quickly glanced at and forgot as you zeroed in on the prettier ones. Those places ain't really the real world either -- I'm talking about the everyday women you see at the Walmart in Kalamazoo, a Costco's in Omaha, at a Kansas City Chief's game, online at the Toledo DMV, pooper-scooping at the Kangaroo parks in Sydney, and so on.

    Hmm . . . are they better than the homey women who live near the beach in Southern California, land of gyms and botox? Should I be moving to KC? ;)

    This Just In! Report From The Field!!!

    Unlike the rest of you lazy bums, I braved the elements to do some field research on this topic today instead of just pontificating about it from my home or office like everyone else:

    While in Manattan briefly today for a meeting, I took particular note of all the women -- young, old, fat, thin, tall, short -- passing me on Broadway between 55th and 58th streets at approximately noon. I compared the looks of each one to Maria Sharapova's looks. Out loud. (Just kidding.)

    The verdict? Of the 65 women I counted before returning to my car, not ONE was as pretty as Sharapova.

    Now, maybe it's a bad street, a bad time of day, bad luck, or something like that. Or maybe my theory that 98% of the great unwashed hoi polloi of various ages, shapes, and sizes are less attractive than a fit, lanky, blond, young, and pretty Russian woman is true.

    Go figure.

    Yeah, go figure Heycal. Considerating the fact that the only one pontificating this "anywhere" is yourself, the fact that you are now admitting to leaning over the edge is sweet satisfaction for me. Of the hundred ladies you personally polled, the results are irrelevant - because (must I say it again?) these are only YOUR OPINIONS AND YOUR STANDARDs HEYCAL!!!!! I would be curious to know how you rated on the crazy woman's scorecard who was probably pontificating over the matter regarding some random celebrity. They do say there is a one-of-a-kind match for everyone. ;)

    Like Heycal, I also felt it was my duty to, once and for all, prove whether MS is attractive, here it is...

    Unlike the rest of the smart members on this board, I braved the elements to do some field research on this topic today instead of just pontificating (french for...you know) about it from my home or office like heycal:

    While in Chicago briefly today for a cup of coffee, I took particular note of all the women -- young, old, fat, thin, tall, short -- passing me on Michigan Avenue between Wabash and Columbus drive at approximately noon. I compared the looks of each one to Maria Sharapova's looks. Out loud.

    The verdict? Of the 650 women I counted before returning to my car, every ONE was prettier than Sharapova.

    Now, maybe it's a good street, a good time of day, good luck, or something like that. Or maybe heycal's theory that 98% of the great unwashed hoi polloi of various ages, shapes, and sizes are less attractive than a fit, lanky, blond, young, and pretty Russian woman is wrong.

    Go figure.

    Actually, there are a couple of dozen people pontificating on Sharpova's looks in this thread, and you are one of the more prominent pontificators.

    You call mentally evaluating the attractiveness of passing women as "leaning over the edge" -- I call it doing my homework.;) Not to mention business as usual for me and many other guys...

    As for "standards" and "opinions", of course they are my own, and yours may differ for byzantine reasons known only to you. But as it happens, my standards and opinions about M. Sharapova's good looks happen to be supported by the fact that she is an internationally known celebrity in large part because of her good looks, and makes 20 million dollars a year in endorsements, also in large part because of her looks.

    Not sure why you get so bent out of shape over the obvious fact of Maria Sharapova's attractiveness. Hmm.

    I'd heard there are some pretty women on Michigan Avenue and elsewhere in Chicago, but I didn't realize HOW many. Wow. Go Cubs!

    HeyCal, Maybe it's because you and I are into the eastern european looks

    I saw that movie "Hostel" (directed by Eli Roth) and thought that those Russian actresses were mighty hot as well :)

    Well, I was born and raised in Los Angeles (hardly a "two-bit city" and one where innumerable beauties live) and i've travelled to other countries, so when I say Sharapova is not even average (and has euro-peasant features), i'm quite sure my assessment is spot-on, as she was not born with the genetic "goods" worthy of the praise she receives. Furthermore, I can cut through the rigmarole of others out there with ease and to uncover fact that for many, the original cause for their pro-Sharapova stand was comparing her appearnace--plain as it is--almost exclusively to others in her profession, where resides the not-too-pleasing mugs/bodies of players such as Henin, Peer, Mauresmo, Myskina, Kuznetsova, Petrova, and (ohhh, my stomach!) the...creature...called Hingis.

    Next to THAT rough and shocking crew, even Rosie O'Donnel & Oprah suddenly seem visually appealing, so in this way, Sharapova really gains no points on the world stage (where many of her fans like to place her on). Within the tennis scene, she's nothing special; take her out of the tennis scene, and she's less than average...unless one is unusually forgiving of that type of appearance. Now, Dokic and Vaidasova? Yes, they are likely the best head-turners (more for their bodies than face) in the profession...

    I do like Russian girls and an Eastern European look, and certainly enjoyed my visit to Moscow a couple of years back, but I also like the Western European look just as much. Basically, I like the "attractive" look regardless of its origins.


    I already dealt with this issue thoroughly in post #136, and explained that female tennis players are actually more attractive than average women, but less so than other celebrities and women in advertising and media they are often compared to.

    I've probably traveled most everywhere you have, and have lived in both New York City and Los Angeles as well. Many beautiful women in those cities and in other countries for sure. But tons more who are not very attractive at all. To say Sharapova is below average ANYWHERE, save for a convention of Vogue models, is insane, and your harping on her "peasant" features seems a bit unsettling in its race and class implications as well...

    I've seen her from within 12 feet twice. Her appearance is "ordinary". This pic of raiden's is a pretty good/fair representation of her. "No big deal."

    I've seen plenty of more attractive young women in Birmingham, Rochester, Kansas City, Minneapolis, SLC, Portland, Banff, Boston, Phoenix, Caracas, etc....

    heycal needs to get out more. (Besides, aren't you a little old to be dreaming about a post-adolescent like Shriekapova?)

    A) She looks damn fine in that picture, KK, not "no big deal".

    B) You and the others who keep talking about how you've see many more attractive women in the world need take a note of how many, many LESS attractive women you also see. I don't know why this simple concept seems so hard to grasp for many here.

    C) Heycal lives in New York, land of some of the most beautiful women in the world, so he's hardly being deprived of seeing good looking women. And when he was out today, he passed no less than 65 women before reaching his car who were not as attractive as MS, and I suspect that you would have agreed had you been strolling down Broadway with me.

    D) Heycal doesn't spend much time dreaming of Sharapova (she wouldn't even be my first choice among the tennis chicks), but he has somehow ended up as the great Sharapova defender around here the last couple of days. When people start saying ridiculous things like she's "below average" looking I feel I have a duty to speak up -- I guess I'm like a modern day Robert Kennedy, "who saw wrong, and tried to right it.";)

    See, this kind of comment I find to be pure, wild fantasy...in the extreme, and (though no insult implied with the following) a strange build-up of someone who is clearly nothing special, and none have yet to describe exactly how she rates above most on the streets.

    Now to the next post...

    Race? No. I did not say all other women of her race suffered her same problems, so unless I make such a claim (ex.: "all eastern European-born women are just plain awful--one big army of she-beasts!"), your suggestion is a (country-wide) stretch at best.

    i don't know who uve been hanging around with or where uve been hanging around in.. but my goodness if u think maria sharapova is even close to being above average as people of her age then u must really hang around with really unattractive people.. i mean that may mean ur standards.. which i guess is pretty low.. i mean theres no offence to you, but i gotta say shes very ordinary.. in fact very very ordinary.. there is no specialty about her at all.. like something if u go out with her to be proud of.. lets go from her face.. full of acne, looks ordinary at all ive seen much better than her face.. ok lets go to her boobs and arse.. again very ordinary.. kinda look like a surfboard.. flat top flat bottom.. her lankiness, its so not propotionate either.. she looks like a giraffe (kinda like what peter crouch is), all and all which part of her really comes out or shine above all the average girls on the street.. i mean ok i got to say to find a really beautiful person is really hard it is a minority.. but to find one thats as good as sharapova.. i could really go out there right now.. and find alot of them that have a more propotioned body, better face. and when i mean ALOT i mean it.. u dont need to argue with us.. we've seen more than u obviously.. uve seen less if u think that.. theres no point of arguing if u havent seen it..

    theres a psychology theory... which says that peoples brain cannot accept things that theyve never seen before.. kinda like the old age the early americans.. they havent seen a ship before in their life.. so when columbus' ship came to the shore.. they didnt notice it.. coz they didnt know what a ship looks like... its kinda how this is.. uve never seen what we've seen so in ur brain u think that them overweight people who wattles across the street is the average women.. when wat we're talking about is different.. so ur brain couldnt accept this.. so yeh all in all.. u cant put words into our mouth.. not gonna work.. coz where we come from maria is average to below average.. shes in the bottom half of the group.. if we were to do a rating.. she'd be about 5/10.. thanks very much.. so please dont tell me wat i like coz u dont know me thank u very much..

    Okay. Let's make it easy for you. Here's some photos of average women from the real world, the kind you pass on the street or see in Walmart or online at the movies everyday:

    I've lived in New York, Los Angeles, and Boston. I've visited most major American cities, as well as Russia, Scandinavia, and many of the top cities in Europe, kid. Where have you been besides Surfer's Paradise Beach?

    You really must learn to read. Remember the part about Sharapova being more attractive than ALL women? Remember how the word ALL was capitilized, as if to EMPHASIZE it?... Now, if you want to compare her to other 20 year olds, I would agree that she would no longer be in the top 2% of attractiveness. Maybe more like the topic 5-7%, I would guess.


    They never noticed Columbus's ship coming to shore, huh? Completely missed it, is that what you're saying? Kind of like if a spaceship from Mars landed in Times Square it wouldn't register with anyone, what with people never haviing seen a spaceship from Mars before and all? Um, okay...

    I've seen what you've seen, and a hell of lot more, I imagine. Those overweight people waddling across the street is a very common sight in the real world, if not on Surfer's Paradise Beach.

    Um, not to be a traitor or anything, Mick, but I think I might possibly go with Paris Hilton in that match up...

    You gotta relax, kid.

    Signing off now. Good night.;)

    ok u know what dude? u might wanna attack me coz i said maria sharapova is average.. and thats fine with me.. theres no hard feelings and im sorry if ive been harsh to u!!.. im just saying from experience. MY experience on what i've seen from this world.. and i really do find maria sharapova very average, she wouldnt even make me turn my head for her.. I've actually seen maria sharapova in person in the crown palladium hotel last year.. and again IMHO she is very average, she isn't one of those girls that i would drool over and go omg shes a hotty.. there are many girls out there that i find much better than sharapova.. but hey by any means if you find her very attractive then i respect ur opinion.. but im asking u the same thing.. will u please respect my opinion? and dont attack it? because that's just my opinion, and someone else's cup of tea might be different than mine.. but i just get very annoyed when someone else tries to think for me.. thanks.

    Heycal give it a rest please. To compare a 20 yr old blond thin woman with overweight frumpy hens is a little ridiculous. Try to put this into perspective please. It's impossible to even debate your posts anymore.

    Paris Hilton is another one. Sure she is tall and thin and blonde. So are millions of others though. The problem with Hilton other that that hooked beak of hers is the plastic blow-up doll quality she has. She always stands in the same pose, with the same facial expression. Everyone I know laughs at Hilton - she is a bit of a celebrity joke. If given those two options I would be forced to pick MS for the simple fact she can turn her head from left to right without concern of messing the bleached-blonde damaged straw-like hair of hers.
    I'm afraid we don't see eye to eye on this. The women I consider to be beautiful celebrities are heads above your girl.

    Can you see where I'm going here Heycal? Sure the ones you have posted most certainly fit into your 98 percentile, but if you want to stoop to that level, let's bring in the celebrity actresses. These are just five who I consider to be beautiful. Take notice how they are all brunette, they all have curves, they are all breathtakingly gorgeous is a natural way. They are even higher when they load up as Sharapova does for a night on the town. These don't have to though, they are gorgeous and I'm afraid your MS is so far below them in the looks department it is laughable. And there are tens of thousands who are at this level with a little trip to the salon. That said, I'm officially bored with the topic - we simply have very different ideas of beauty here.

    but cc see how our ends of the scale work differently? notice how WE choose maria over paris.. OUR style is tending towards natural beauty, women with a body shaped like an hour glass, girls that doesn't need to put lots of make up to be beautiful, just the classic kinds of beauty.. they tend towards the more barbie kinda look with the plastic surgery, blonde, thin, frail surfboard like type.. i dont think its fair if we compare our taste to his.. because we find his type very ugly and he might find ours ugly.. but yeah thats each to their own :) but in my humble opinion i still find masha not that attractive at all.. but again my opinion only

    Agree with all you said BC. The only reason I posted those five is to play the same game tactic as his "plain jane" examples. I have friends who easily fit into that category when they go out. They are naturally pretty and when they put the effort in, they are knockouts. But they have normal lives: boyfriends, husbands, 9-5 jobs and do not play professional sports or race down to Hollywood. They are real women the same as hundreds of thousands out there. Definately there are more Roseanne Barr's than Jennifer Aniston's but 98% is a tad ludicrous. LOL.

    uhuh.. thats y i dare to say to him to come to australia so that i can show him.. but i guess he doesnt like what we like.. i mean his example of maria being rich.. not everyone wants the attention like them.. trust me.. i was out with a friend of mine in the city before.. and there was these 2 guys coming up to her from CMD modelling agency, they gave her a name card and asked if shes interested to be a model.. she refused, and i was shocked to that.. i thought its everygirls dream to be a model... then i asked her why did she do that.. and she laughed at me.. then she joked with me she would rather become a billionaire businesswoman then to become an attention seeking u know wat.. and not take the easy way by selling her body to find attention.. and to me thats a real woman.. thats one of the reason why most people dont become a paris hilton.. because they choose to take the right path and fight hard for their life instead of being cheap and willing to do anything for attention.. anyway it doesn't matter now..

    and one last message to heycal.. i swear ok dude? i have no hard feelings with u.. and when im inviting u to come down to adelaide.. i really mean that as in a friendly way.. if you're interested in people like paris hilton, i know a place called 'stormy's' where you can pay $1000/hr to spend time with these kinds of girls.. the boss have paid lots of money for their girls to be fixed paris hilton style for the plastic surgeries and everything.. and it happens to be that theres a girl that works there named frieda, shes a cousin of my friend.. maybe if you come down to adelaide i could ask my friend to introduce u to her.. and i promise u she looks very similar to paris hilton.. with the blonde hair and everything.. ive seen her photos too

    Why are you comparing maria sharapova and paris hilton? Sharapova is a world class athlete and Paris Hilton is trash.

    In the US, 8 out of 10 adults above the age of 25 are overweight according to statistics. So unless big is beautiful to you, I don't see how Sharapova is "not particularly attractive" by that standard when you walk out the door and compare the average woman to sharapova. I'll even admit that I can find better looking women anytime I walk into a bar on a weekend, but she is still above average. Its unfair to compare glamorous hollywood women who are always looking their best to a tennis player that sweats and has alot of pics in awkward positions and making awkward faces.

    Notice how I said overweight (not obese) and above the age of 25. Above age 20 its like 60% overweight. The life expectancy is still high because of medical technologies.

    She claims her friends look like that, but I haven't seen any pics. I don't even know what her/their age is.

    i guess.. im not even sure what overweight means these days.. in my days.. it used to be that if a girl with a size of 10(AUS size) dress was overweight.. these days they say size 12(aus) is healthy and 14 is overweight.. so i think thats where the overweight ratio that they said come from..

    Overweight according to my statistic is when BMI is >= 25. So a 5' person should weigh < 128. Someone who is 6' should weight < 184. The problem with this chart is that it doesn't account for people that have muscle, since muscle adds weight. I am considered overweight because I have a bit more muscle than average. But given a population where 75% don't exercise, I'd say thats irrelevant.

    The beautiful women CC posted photos of are all more attractive than Maria Sharapova and Paris Hilton. What that has to do with this conversation I'm not sure, because they are nowhere near "average" (They're extraordinary looks are mostly why they're famous.) The notion that CC's friends look similar to them also seems a bit far-fetched.

    Sooner or later, you naysayers need to come to grips with the fact that in the real world, Miss Sharapova is more attractive than about 98% of ALL women walking our planet, my original assertion, and probably close to 95% of her fellow 20 year olds. To put this in perspective, this means that if you were to walk across the campus of bustling Michigan State University one day, for example, maybe one out of every 20 co-eds streaming past you would be more attractive than her.

    What I'm saying is not that controversial. I'm not sure why people are practically having heart attacks over it.

    I might put her in the 98% when you are comparing to her with ALL women (including fat, ugly, middle-aged), but what about comparing her only to women of her age range. I would say she's still above average there, but not at the top (maybe 70 percentile). But I'm willing to bet some people on this board judge her negatively because they don't like her tennis or perceived personality, or are jealous of her accomplishments.

    Disclaimer #1: "Beauty" is a personal -- and relative -- quality. I see beauty in some women other men wouldn't even glance at one time. (And vice versa.)

    Disclaimer #2: I've seen recent reports that Colorado (where I live) is one of the most "fit" states, overall ... speaking of our population.

    Disclaimer #3: My father always told us, "All women are beautiful; some are just more beautiful than others."

    Those three disclaimers aside, I'd say heycal just demonstrated he needs to get out more. Those pics are not "representative" of the typical females one encounters in daily life. (At least not me....)

    (Back to my point in Disclaimer #1) Why are you getting so worked-up trying to convince people your concept of "beauty" is the acceptable standard? (Your volume of posts on this thread is my evidence that you are, indeed, "worked-up" over this.)

    You think she's pretty. Great. Good for you.

    I have to laugh about all you people who claim the women in your city or more attractive than MS, or more attractive than the women I see on a daily basis. (What part of "New York" do you not understand?)

    It's not MY standard of beauty were really debating here, KK -- it's society's standard. Perhaps you folks who think Sharapova isn't attractive need to start a letter writing campaign to the companies who pay her millions of dollars primarily because of her good looks and tell them they're crazy and making a big mistake instead of whining to me about it.

    Okay seriously, if that is what is average out there, and is what you are used to seeing then hell, I should be at least in the top 80%! And no wonder you think she is so beautiful! But there are a lot of beautiful women out there, everywhere! My thoughts are that she is cute, pretty even, but nothing really takes her up to the next level, sorry.

    I think his samples were a pretty good representation of whats out there. I won't deny that its easy to spot attractive women out there every day. But do you really think about how many unattractive ones you encounter in the process? I'm sure you don't, the unattractive ones are prevalent and probably invisible to you. They are invisible to me if I'm not consciously thinking about it.

    Yes, those women are average and what I'm used to seeing out there, and unless you're a butler at the Playboy Mansion, it's what you're used to seeing too. (The third photo of that group is the best, since it shows typical everday women her own age.) That why I, and the media at large, think Maria Sharapova is attractive.

    Very well said, Raiden031. I've been trying to tell them this for awhile, but they're not seeing the light (yet).

    funny thing is if this was a landslide vote.. hes got a right to argue.. but man its a 50/50 debate.. half of the population of TW that cares about this thread thinks the opposite from u.. so really heycal u cant possibly think that u can convince us wat we see or wat we havent seen.. because ur not us.. what ur doing is crossing the line.. its like u think u know us better than ourself..

    i really got to agree with KK on this.. why are u so worked up about what WE think anyway? i mean u dont know us, we dont know u.. wat we see day in day out maybe very different.. and why do u have to be so worked up?

    and as to ur claim about companies paying her millions.. oh wait if thats the case theres also alot of average people that gets paid alot more than her that are as average looking as her.. should we complain about them? NO because u know why? tiger woods, serena williams, maria sharapova, ronaldinho, what do all these people have in common? They've all became very famous because of what they've done in their fields.. people never claimed them to be attractive.. but theyre the fashion icons of each brand that they're sponsored with.. and they sell, its not because of serena's good looks, or maria's good looks or tiger woods' good looks.. its because of their status.. so back to ur claim about we should complain about average looking girls that gets paid millions of dollars by a company.. NO, we wouldnt.. they deserved it.. theyve worked hard to get there.. and no its not because of their looks.. everyone looks good when they have talent..

    so the make up artist knows how to make them natural.. so technically they look natural.. so in their natural state they look natural.. therefore with or without make up they'll look natural? meh.. ive seen anne hathaway done up better than that.. in that pic.. i actually tried to find a pic where it looks as much as natural as her.. i mean i could really find a pic thats all airbrushed and touched up and make her look 19430902349092034929049023490x better than masha's SI magazine shoots..
